“This place deserves a better review”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2012

It is a chain place that might lack certain cozy and warmth. However, the place is clean and nice. Food is very good: steak, fish, burger ... the most amazing thing is about its warm carrots cake - truly the best one that I have tried.

“The quality you expect from this chain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2012

As far as chains go, J. Alexander provides a very nice experiencew and this Chicago-area location is no exception.

The menu is tidy but offers nice variety, the service is friendly and professional and the food is well-presented with good flavor.

Nothing to sing and dance about, but I would return again if I was in the area for business.

“Amazing dinner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2011

The staff was very friendly, the drinks were great, and the food was amazing!
Steak, and heirloom beats were cooked to perfection!
I could ask for nothing more from a restaurant.
