J. Alexander's is a great restaurant!

We eat here a lot. I almost always have the Ahi Tuna Salad, best in cincinnati. My date has the Rotisserie Chicken, also great. We usually share, the portions are large. They use a "tag team" service model. All wait people watch the tables for what needs to be done. Water, plate pick up or ticket... read more

This is an excellent choice for a business lunch with easy parking. I recommend securing a reservation as it does get quite busy. I really enjoy the Ahi Tuna salad - the tuna is prepared perfectly every time!

I sat at the bar and enjoyed a generous and very delicious martini followed by the roast chicken. It is a half roast chicken and huge. The chicken is succulent and moist served with delicious buttery mashed potatoes. Talk about comfort food. I travel a lot and will be looking for this brand in other cities

Finally, a decent place to celebrate a birthday, close to home. I went the other evening to celebrate my brother's birthday with my father and sister in law in tow also. We went rather early so it was not crowded, and our waiter was very attentive to our needs. (My father is elderly and gets cold easily and our waiter... More

Visited for an early dinner and enjoyed another excellent meal at this restaurant. The atmosphere is outstanding for a nice conversation and a peaceful meal. The menu is varied between entree salads, sandwiches, and more traditional entrees. I had cilantro shrimp, and while the shrimp were on the smaller side, they were full of flavor and the cilantro flavor counteracted... More

Alexander's always delivers quality cuisine. Rib eye sandwich, rotisserie chicken and tuna salad are especially and the key lime pie and carrot cake are the best in Cincinnati. Servers are a bit over-anxious and don't allow you time to read the drink menu. Otherwise, service is friendly and efficient.

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!
