Restaurant is popular, it was busy on a Saturday evening. The staff was courteous and attentive. I ordered a French Dip sandwich, consisting of slices of prime rib and a side order of fries. But the sandwich at $20.00, was not a good value. The fries were not a good value at $5.00 either. For us, usually a restaurant doesn't... More

Walking in, the two of us females, sans our spouses, were immediately asked if we had reservations. We politely said no and the multiple hostesses made quite a show of scouring their reservation list. The problem was, it was 5:15; the place was, for all intent and purpose, empty, despite it being a Friday night (the night was young!) but... More

I have certain restaurants on my mental list when I travel. J Alexander's is one of them. The usual 5-star rating received from me is well deserved at other locations. However, this location failed to receive the usual high rating. No one greeted us as we came in. They weren't ready for customers even though the hours posted on the... More

My family and I visited J. Alexander's in Atlanta for Sunday dinner and I must say that we weren't disappointed with the quality and quantity of our food. I have to very finnicky kids and they both truly enjoyed their food. Our server, Todd Belin took our experience to the next level with his attentive service and his professional and... More

The food was pretty good. Not a lot of draft beer options which was a downer and the Fox News playing was a little annoying. It was definitely reasonably priced for a classy establishment. The service was good, and the chicken was awesome!

Another fantastic experience at J Alexanders! And a special thanks to our waitress, Nhi! She was fantastic and provided us with great service. The food was also spectacular… from the insanely good mac & cheese… to the Cajun ribeye… to the phenomenal chicken tenders and delicious Hazel nut crusted fish. And don't forget the calamari! We will continue to go... More

Wonderful meal with friends while in Atlanta area. Our wait was short, service excellent and all the meals wonderful. If your looking for a place a bit more upscale than your typical restaurant, give J Alexander's a try.

For the first time since coming here it was not an excellent experience. The strip steak my son ordered was cooked perfect but the quality of meat was fatty and full of gristle. He ate half and took the rest home only to throw in the trash later. I wish I had said something but my fault for not. Everything... More

My family always visited J Alexander's just outside of Chicago for special occasions when I was growing up, but I haven't been in several years. Went here on business, and it hasn't changed a bit ... that is, it's still great in every way. The staff is exceptional, very friendly and always willing to go above and beyond. We basically...

This is one of those restaurants that have a varied menu, excellent (and consistent) food preparation, generous portions and reasonable prices. Since this restaurant transitioned from Houston's to J Alexander's, many years ago, I typically eat there a minimum of once a week - oftentimes twice a week. The hostesses and the wait staff are always welcoming. On occasion, though... More
