This is hands down my favorite restaurant. The Cajun Prime Rib is not on the menu so you have to ask for it. It is one of the finest pieces of meat you will ever have on your plate. I have had it many times and it is perfect every time, it's like it melts in your mouth. You have... More

Does not take reservations, but the atmosphere and the food is good. Met my wife there on our first date. Also, kinda noisy in the eating area.

We have been visiting J Alexander's for many years. It was recently acquired by Redlands and I just wanted to put to rest any concerns that it may have changed. It hasn't changed...it still offers very fresh options, a wide variety and daily specials. I have noticed some of the prices have inched up a little (which we expected), but... More

J. Alexander's Restaurant is located in the outer drive of the Riverchase Galleria in Hoover (South Birmingham). 4 of us has an early salad lunch. At 11am it was not crowded although I had made a reservation. The lunch menu is too extensive IMHO. The signature dish is Roast Prime Rib. The table service was prompt and courteous. The salads...

My husband and I made reservations online and we were seated immediately upon arrival. Our waiter was fabulous. He was attentive throughout our visit as was the other staff. Other staff cleared our dishes, refilled drinks and asked if we needed anything. We were informed of specials. I could not recommend J Alexander's enough. You will not be disappointed. Great...

I ate at this restaurant twice in one week on a business trip. The staff is very friendly, helpful and attentive. The food is really good. It is pricey but worth it. Nice atmosphere.

This location is now a Redlands Grill brand of J Alexander's. The decor is perfect, the artwork inside is stunning, the menu is outstanding, and the service is professional. My family always enjoys dining here. The portions are more than bountiful, always made to order, and with the best ingredients available. Prices are more than fair (you get what you... More
