Their food is excellent, always fresh with generous portions. It is one of my favorite go-to places to enjoy a leisurely meal with friends. I usually get the salmon which is always fresh and delicious.

This was only my second time here and I'll definitely be returning after this. I'm not a big fan of sauces on my steak but the steak Maui here is actually very, very good! They serve it with a huge mountain of mashed potatoes as well. Overall, service is good, the experience is great, ambiance is nice and the carrot... More

Noisy, noisy, noisy! This is not a restaurant for a romantic dinner or to catch up with friends. I find J Alexander overrated and pricey. Servers weren't paying attention of the table flow. My entree was placed next while I still was eating my salad and my friends had the same opinion.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. The prime ribs of beef are delicious. the portions are huge and you will be taking some of it home. Their wine list is good with very fair prices.

Meal was great, their special are top notch, Still way to dark if you are not on a date, and very loud so if you are on a date it is touch to just talk.

As always, very crowded and full of excitement. Eric at the bar took good care of us as usual and got us our drinks fast. The table was ready sooner than originally stated . Ordered an appetizer and for dinner ordered the tai salad and split with my fiancé and our friends had the same and the steak with mushrooms.... More

This was our second visit and it was just as awesome as the first. We took our son and his wife here for his birthday celebration. The food is fantastic and you can't beat the feel of the restaurant. The staff was great and we had a wonderful time! It is a little pricey, but it is so worth it!

When you want to go out to dinner or lunch, and want a guaranteed good meal....this is the place. Yes, it can get a pricy. But, I've always felt I got my money's worth. Service is great and they have a full bar. They don't take reservations and at times there will be a wait. Definitely one of my go-to... More

This is our go-to place in Plantation. Service is top notch, drinks are perfect and food never disappoints. It's a very popular place though - either get there early or prepare to wait. Hats off to the management!
