Most people I know rave about local fair and rarely migrate to chain restaurants. However this is our 4th time here and it is because the good is consistently awesome. I love spicy food and had the rattlesnake pasta and it was great. With a glad of house wine, it sealed the meal. Even thou hit is a chain, I... More

We have been going here for years- (the ribs are better than other famous rib locations in town. ) Today we tried the ground steak sandwich with fries- it was a hearty meal that tasted good for a late lunch. Good service!

Not only was the lunch memorable for having my son take me out, but for having one of the best restaurant meals I've had in quite awhile. My son made the astute observation that J. Alexander's was an upscale family restaurant--and indeed there were families with children, elderly couples, and some single folks here and there. Most dressed nicely but... More

It's J. Alexander's. This chain delivers consistently good food at a reasonable price. The bar is well staffed and a good option when there's a wait for a table. This place gets busy for lunch during the week. If you're new to J. Alexander's, grab the queso dip for an appetizer.

My wife and came here to celebrate our anniversary and everything was perfect. Both our steaks were cooked exactly as we'd ordered them, the sides were great and the service staff was prompt and attentive. We'll be back, for sure.

We had an incredible evening and dining experience. We had a Terrific Server named Brianne, and her service as one of the Best we've ever experienced. Along with great service, she could have been a Wine Sommelier, as she recommended a terrific Pinot Noir that was one of the best we've ever had. We started out with a delicious Crab... More

The Crabcakes are simply amazing. I usually get the same thing but on this visit I decided to try something new. This is going to be my new recommendation to recommend to guest staying at the Courtyard.

Finally, a place that can cook a great burger! They cut their burger in half in the kitchen, so they know if it is cooked as ordered before it gets to your table. The mac and cheese was one of the best I've ever had. Love the orzo salad - if you've never had it, try it next time. Our... More

Dinner meeting with other colleagues. Hostess and waitress were very friendly and attentive. Timing of drinks, salads, soups and dinner plates was great. Food was excellent and did not hear any complaints as everyone finished their meals completely. Pricing was in the range to be expected. No complaints, would go back again.

We had lunch to celebrate my wife's birthday with our kids. I had the Ahi Tuna Salad which was simply delicious! J. Alexander's fly in the tuna fresh each day. There were slices of tuna on the plate next to the salad which were very tasty. The service was excellent but not intrusive and the noise level is very low.... More
