My family and I took a spur of the moment trip shopping at the galleria mall. We decided on J Alexanders for a late afternoon lunch. From the time we entered to the time we left we felt well taken care of, the service was exceptional. My daughter got the kids pasta and my son got the chicken tenders with... More

We went to J Alexanders on a business trip. The food was very good the service was excellent. The only drawback for me was the interior lighting I do not see well in the dark and it was a little dark in there for me. Otherwise this was a great experience a very good restaurant I would highly recommend it.... More

Good meal and atmosphere. I'm glad someone else was paying for it. It's pricey. Sometimes I find the menu a little limited.

Went last night for anniversary and had the filet and the strip with sides. Filet was better seasoned than the strip, but both were really good cuts of meat with little to no fat. Spinach queso is my favorite to start with. Unfortunately, no room for dessert because dinner was delish!

Food is awesome and affordable! The only downside is that sadly they do not take reservations. I eat there a lot on business, and me and my family eat there often on pleasure trips to the Wynfrey.

Steak done right. Service was great, attentive but didn't hover and let us enjoy our meal. Our steaks were cooked just the way they were ordered.

Casual yet upscale with delicious variety of food, wine and martinis. I wouldn't bring kids here mainly due to the calm atmosphere.

J Alexander's is one of our favorite places for a date night. You can start with a drink at the bar while you wait for your table, if you choose. They are very consistent with the quality of their food. I recommend the pork tenderloin served with mashed potatoes. Also the house salad is huge and full of fresh veggies,... More
