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!

Love this place for lunch when I am in the area. The staff is fantastic - we are always warmly greeted and then well served at the table. I opted for the cod with couscous which was cooked perfectly and well-seasoned. You cannot go there and not have the carrot cake - it is served warm with lots of cream... More

I arrived by 5pm and was seated right away. I enjoyed the cozy ambiance with the low lighting and wood beams overhead. They were playing jazz in the background which I enjoy. My server was attentive and service was excellent. I had the pecan crusted trout and I was surprised by the size of the fillet. Wow, it was massive,... More

Really enjoyed this one. Good looking interior with high timber beamed room. Very busy (7.30 pm) so we had a drink at the bar whilst waiting for our table which despite the estimated 40 mins was only 20. We sat in a booth round the edge and had fabulous fried chicken, spicy cilantro shrimp, succulent rib of beef and sweet... More

Service was excellent. Food had too much pepper in all dishes ordered which was a shame because the menu was very nice. The restaurant was comfortable and pleasant.

Service was the highlight of this meal.Scott E provided service I haven't experienced in years! He was very knowledgeable about the menu and helped us decide what to order. He had several tables to wait on but with the service I received you would have thought I was the only person in the restaurant. I always drink at least 8... More

....A little noisy. That's the only negative. At a time when it's hard to find a good steak here comes J Alexander's to the rescue. It also has a good bar and service. A bit on the pricey side. but well worth it
