We stopped to eat lunch here. I ordered the devil eggs and that was some of the best eggs I've eaten. The ribs were great. The waitress was very attentive to the table. We never ran out of drink or want for anything. On departing the waitress made sure we each had an ice tea to go. Great place to... More

We had a very nice evening meal there. Plates are big. The salad as a starter was already a meal... Local beer is very good but also very strong, 9.2 degrees, we appreciate that we came on foot!!

We had high hopes. Previous visits were superb, but menu has changed and was not as varied. My husband ordered the Steak Maui and it was practically burned when you ask for medium on the well side. My Israeli Coucous and Redlands Salad with cilantro vinaigrette were very tasty. I originally ordered the Ahi Tuna and they were out as... More

This place was recommended to us by a local and we were not disappointed. We had fried shrimp, slaw and fries. The shrimp were huge and delicious. Sides were great and service was spot on. The restaurant was a little dark but all in all a definite 5 stars.

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.
