They have our favorite spinach dip. Their ahi tuna salad is excellent. But we have had many other dishes - steak, burgers, seafood - and all very good. J Alexander's is one of our regular dinner choices.

I think they have two options for gluten free. You can ask the j Alexander of your choice before heading up there because they change menus from every different venue.
