We enjoyed our prime rib (12 oz) so much last time we ordered it again - to share between 2, and it was superb medium rare. The wine was good too and the servers were courteous and helpful. We will return.

Food is good - portions are enormous. Menu is enormous also. Servers are helpful. Large place but not overly crowded for lunch. Take home what you don't eat. I ate the Thai Kai Salad at two more meals.

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.
