“J. Alexander's of Orlando Closes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

This location closed at the end of dinner service last evening. A real disappointment as the service and food were always very good.

“Ideal for a Business Lunch !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Consistent, consistent, consistent....Food and Staff !!! Great centrally location for business lunches or dinner.... Service is typically very fast - yet relaxed. Nice variety of choices dependent on what you are in the mood for and they are very accommodating for special meal requests.... Reasonably priced .....

“A Nashville favorite in Orlando!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

We were thrilled to find a J. Alexander's in Orlando! Business travel has taken me to Nashville more times than I can count and I always make a point to visit one of the J's there. From the thick beefsteak tomatoes (we ask for balsamic to go with them) appetizer to the tender filet mignon bernaise' to the mouthwatering carrot cake the size of your head - we haven't had a bad dish at J's. Service is always quick and efficient. Imagine our dismay when we learned that corporate had decided to close this location just when we had discovered it! I guess we will have to drive to Tampa or wait until we are back in Nashville to enjoy the cuisine.

“Always excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

I eat here a couple of times a week whenever I'm in Orlando, and have never had a bad meal here. It's a great choice if you want great food, excellent service, and a nice atmosphere at reasonable prices. The menu is slightly limited, but almost everything on there is good. You can't go wrong here.

“Some what disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

My wife loves J Alexanders and any time we are close we are there. Normal for dinner she orders the pork tenderloin, which she did again last night and as usual it was very good. I ordered the steak brazzo, which was fair. The disappointment was the service, which was not good at all. Our waiter came took our bottle of wine order and then our food order, saw him twice after that, when he pour us a little more wine and then when he asked if we wanted dessert. Never once did he or his helper ever ask if our meals were ok. The other disappointment was for the cost of the meals, $22.00 for the pork and $28.00 for the steak, the only other portion serve with them were their smashed potatoes, no veggie, no bread, not anything else.
