Great for business lunches! Really good food and plenty of it. The prime rib (french dip) sandwich is absolutely excellent, most of the time. Sometimes though it is full of fat. For that reason I quit ordering it. Now I get the Asian Salad and find it to be the perfect amount of food for lunch. Beautiful restaurant!

Hidden in the Quarry Market mall in Alamo Heights is one of our favorite places to eat. This is a classy place with high level service and great food. We had lunch on a weekday and our server was Jen, she was very good. The quiet ambiance puts J. Alexander above most other restaurants in this area. It so relaxing... More

This place serves typical American fare and does a good job at it, the service was very good. The mesquite grill offers a real zing to the food.

Had lunch here the other day with a friend. Service was excellent. Had the Ahi Tuna Burger and it was tastey but the orzo salad that came with it was excellent. My friend had the grilled tenderloin and enjoyed it! Menu has a good array of items for whatever you are looking to have for lunch.

Made it here for the first time. Food is amazing and the drinks are delicious. I personally thought the prices are reasonable. I highly recommend the Salmon Dip as an appetizer and a Dirty Martin with blue cheese olives! Superb.
