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

If you're looking for an upscale dining experience in a relaxing atmosphere without the added bar noise and high chat levels, then I would highly recommend J. Alexander's Restaurant. It is conveniently located around other restaurant establishments and fine dining experiences, but this was the one location we opted to try for the first time. The food was fixed to... More

This restaurant was always a favorite, guaranteed good meal. Unfortunately the quality of the food was not what I remembered from prior visits. Perhaps it was just an off night (a Monday). The server was rarely present and the food could have been better. Will try again to see if things improve

I had previously been to J.Alexander's in Nashville and ate what was probably the best steak I had ever eaten. So, when I came into this location for a late lunch (and not really wanting to pay for a steak) I got a steak burger instead. When I asked for the burger to be medium-well, it came out rather under-done.... More

We have eaten at J Alexander's in several states. When the restaurant chain first opened, the food was very good and something different that you couldn't get everywhere else. Sadly, J Alexander's hasn't changed a bit but the food has become average at best. A $30.00 steak should taste better than a steak I could get for half the price... More

You will never go bad with anything from this restaurant. I have eaten here dozes of times and every item from every dining experience has been nothing short of exceptional. You get what you pay for: 100% class, elegance, service, quality. I cannot rave anymore about this restaurant. You will always have me as a customer.

We stopped in to the restaurant to get some carrot cake to take out! Probably the best carrot cake in town, very moist and delicious! It has become a routine for us to go out to dinner somewhere else then to swing by J Alexanders and get there great carrot cake! Just swing by the bar and they take care... More
