“Great for salads and ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2012 via mobile

We have visited this nationwide chain restaurant many times which I usually order a salad. Last night I ordered the Steak and fries which was good, but not exceptional. I think pretty much the. Ain reason to go is the good ambiance of this place. The service is fair.
My wife ordered the roasted chicken which was good, but not very large in portion.

“So-So Could be Better”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

Arrived around 5:30 pm for early dinner. There was a Hostess present, however, she did not greet us nor did she acknowledge us. Eventaully she finally welcomed us and then some one came and escorted us to a table. So far not a great start.

Server was very nice. We ordered a hamburger with no salt as wife cannot eat salty food whatsoever. Also wanted the burger medium rare. It came well done. Returned for replacement. Second burger came medium rare but loaded with salt. Returned for something else. Salad came as a replecement. Manager never came by to apologize for mis-cues. So far still not impressed with the service or execution of the requests. Other entree ordered was prime rib with smashed potatoes. Preferred bone-in but was told not available. Have been to other locations of the same chain where prime rib wth bone-in was always available. Sorry J. Alexanders this was nota good effort and I don't think we will be back to this location. There are 2 other locations that are superior. Boca Raton and Ft. Lauderdale.

“Chain restaurant provides solid food with good service and ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2012 via mobile

I am a fan of their salads which are very good. Expect superior service and ambiance which is top notch.
My one complaint is the noise level which exceeds my preference.

“SOUP, ok more than soup, Great PIE too”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2012

I must say the best experience I had while dining at J. Alexander's was a chicken soup--such a balance of flavors, fresh veggies, highly recommended. I also had a nice pasta entree, and a key lime pie (huge slice!) for dessert. Come hungry or expect to bring some home with you! Nice presentation of entree as well and very friendly wait staff!!

“First visit to this chain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2012

Fabulous menu, veggie friendly, very fresh. Arrived at 5 pm for very early dinner, nearly empty, great service. Rotisserie chickens looked wonderful, tasted just as good. The artichoke appetizer is enough for an entree or to share.
