This is our family "go to" restaurant. You want lunch, ok; dinner, ok, brunch, ok. What about steak, yep; chicken, yep; seafood, yep. It's easy and you can get most anything you want. Everything on the menu is good and the service is great too. It's a bit noisy during the busiest times, but not overwhelmingly so as it can... More

Here's my beef with this restaurant. Scuse the pun. The employees treat it like a social club and are constantly chatting, calling out to each other and more obsessed with their conversations than with the guests at the bar. It's frustrating because focus isn't there. Food is a solid B- but pricey for what you get! They claim to be... More

I had the steak burger and fries. The burger was juicy and cooked as requested. The fries were shoestring and nicely prepared. I liked that the burger was cut in half. The interior of the restaurant was nice, about as expected for the price of the meal. Service was fine, relatively efficient though not particularly friendly. Overall I enjoyed the... More

Atmosphere: very nice layout. Clean, casual. Good for business meeting or gatherings with family and friends. Staff: Terrible! The hostess was great,but the waitstaff is terrible. On 3 occassions during our evening we were brought food and drinks that were not for our table. Our waitress was so inexperienced and nervous that she kept pouring water each time we took... More

J Alexander's was the closest 'nice' restaurant to my hotel. I wasn't really impressed. Dined alone so I sat at the bar for dinner. Had to wait a few minutes to be served. Seemed the locals got better service. The drinks were priced high. The food was good. Highly recommend the 'steak rolls' appetizer. Overall I left feeling I spent... More

Had lunch at J. Alexander's yesterday with a friend. Service was bad and food was mediocre. It was at the end of the lunch service so the restaurant wasn't packed. The appetizers came out timely, but a few minutes later the entrees came out. It appeared to be an expeditor bringing them since it wasn't our server. As she placed... More

I get the same thing every time-a French dip. The last time I went the beef was tough. Usually good service

I have been coming here for years but it seems to be getting better and better..... I feel the pricing has taken a jump but overall a value for this area.

We chose to eat here for our Anniversary Dinner. We called and were easily able to make reservations for later that evening, We ordered our entrees and they arrived promptly. The steak and fries were ok. The steak was great, however, the fries were over fried. My husband's steak was huge and he said the mac and cheese was amazing... More

Waiters were not friendly and made a big issue about changing a glass of wine. We were celebrating a birthday and this attitude was a downer . The food was good , he service ruined the experience .
