“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

There is not much else to say... I went twice with two different sets of people and I ordered the same prime rib. An absolute feast. I like meat to be rare, or even very rare, and I could tell I would not be disappointed. The prime rib was as rare as they come, but really hot to the heart, which is quite difficult to achieve. It melted like butter in the mouth. The macaroni cheese was heavenly (there is a reward for stealing their recipe) and the creamed spinach to die for.
The carrot cake is served warm, topped with a hot white sugar icing. Best dessert of the vacation.
Superb and professional service.

“Best Food and Key Lime Pie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

J. Alexander's places attention to service, presentation, and quality. The chef's are excellent and the quality of food was excellent. The staff are friendly and responsive to your needs and questions. The Key Lime pie is a must have so save room for it!

“Nice place to eat outdoors, But.....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Great food,m great service and a nice place to sit outdoors and eat. However, the smokers area is way too close to the outside dining area that I might choose inddors next time. Good Steaks, Prime Rib and a killer artichoke appertiser....

“Must get the carrot cake!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

This is one of my favorite places to go. The Mac n cheese is out of this world, and you can never go wrong with the filet and Bernaise.. But the one thing you must order is the carrot cake, it's amazing!
