Yes, yes, yes...it's a chain restaurant. The place has got its stuff together. The service is always courteous and eager to please. I have never received a bad meal at the restaurant, never. Although I usually go with friends, the place is lit primarily with candles so its a bit on the romantic side but I can work with anything.... More

This is a rare fine dining experience that holds up to the price, in my opinion. In an era where value reigns and budgets are ever on the mind, this always lives up to our hopes! Not cheap, but worth it! Excellent service, excellent food... entirely satisfying every single time! (This is what Houston's once was and sadly, is no... More

I have been a J. Alexander's fan for over 10 years and their quality never waivers. Hand's down, one of the best fillet of Salmon I've had, delicately seasoned and grilled to juicy perfection. The mac and cheese is a favorite for grown-ups and kids alike. The salads and vegetables are always fresh and properly cooked and the service is... More

Everything is excellent! The food, wait staff, service and food quality is legendary! Great value too! The steaks, soups, seafood, desserts, bar offerings... This is truly a great restaurant. It is a candle light place so it is a great spot for a romantic dinner. It is a bit pricey; however, the quality of food and service make it worth... More

J Alexander's is the go to place for the entire family! Great cocktails, wine list, excellent service and really good food. Some of our favorites are the roasted artichokes, calamari and carrot cake. Go hungry the portions are huge!

Our first experience at J. Alexander's was great. Their Mexico City spinach con queso was very good. It had a thinner texture than most thick quesos. My sister and I split the grilled pork tenderloin and we were both happy we did. We still had leftovers afterwards. The meat was cooked to perfection and our table of five were all... More

Very professional staff. Artichoke was addicting, a dish I continue to attempt to recreate at home. Ribs at "non- BBQ" joint is almost always a failure. Pork ribs take hours to cook right, and many restaurants do so with poor results when the ribs are finally ordered by a customer. Somehow, J Alexanders has mastered this problem (sous vide perhaps)... More

Good food and great service. Found it on a whim while driving through the Quarry. The Champagne Vinaigrette was awesome

It used to be Tony Roma if you wanted consistently good baby back ribs. Not any more. Alexanders, to my taste at least, always seem to offer stunningly good ribs. This branch is no exception. The ribs just fall off the bone and taste sublime. Even the slaw is a step above. Atmosphere her is also appealing but the service... More

Visited for a casual business dinner. The table started with both the calamari and guacamole appetizers. $ 13.00 each, if I recall correctly. That's a bit steep. The guacamole was fresh and excellent with really good chips. The calamari was on the overlooked side. Ordered the steak and fries. Perfect matchstick fries. Steak as good too. It was about $22....
