My husband and I really enjoyed eating here. We dropped in after shopping for a late lunch. The restaurant appeared clean, and the utensils and plates came out clean and were free of any leftover residue. The hostess greeted us as soon as we walked in, and took us to our table. My husband ordered the ribs (full rack), mac and cheese, and potatoes, which cost $23. His ribs were superb. They were tender, had a (slightly) spicy sweet sauce, and were filling. His potatoes were good and he said the mac and cheese was some of the best he's ever had. When he finished his meal the server (who was very attentive, prompt and kept the drinks coming) brought him a warm towel for his hands. My husband stated that the service was so good, that he felt like a celebrity or v.i.p. I ordered the Thai Kai Chicken salad, which was good and cost $14. The only complaint that I have is that the chicken on the salad looked like lunch meat. That is the only reason why I didn't give this restaurant 5 stars. I would have preferred chicken breast on the salad. I also ordered coffee, which was good and carrot cake. They kept the coffee and all of our drinks coming. We never had to sit and wait for refills. The HUGE slice of carrot cake had the perfect sweetness (wasn't syrupy sweet), and it came out warm with melty cream cheese icing. The portions were large! I cut my cake in half and had enough for the next day. My husband’s mound of potatoes were also huge, and so was his mac and cheese and my salad. The food came out in a reasonable amount of time, was hot, and the service was perfect. I forgot to mention that the server also brought out warm bread and butter. The ambiance was really nice. They had candles lit on all the tables, smooth jazz playing, and the leather seating combined with the wood furnishings gave the restaurant a rich feel. The bathrooms were even really nice (decor) and clean. My said that while he was in the restroom, a staff member came in. On the way out the staff member wiped down the sink and made sure things were tidy. We will be returning to this restaurant. It was worth our money and time eating here. We felt like we got a good value, meal, and experience for our money. With this economy, check out J. Alexander’s. You will get your money’s worth for sure!
