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

Love the steaks and side dishes. The restaurant is cozy and great for conversation. The staff is excellent and attentive. Portions are large enough for take homes. Reservations are recommended.

I have been gone from Atlanta for 5 years and was looking for a nice place for a Sunday Brunch... I saw good reviews but was confused as the location I remembered to have been a different restaurant... The location and layout were the same but it's a new restaurant (since I was there last 5 years ago) with a... More

Service was very good and fast, the food was delicious. the Cesar salad was spot on and we'll plated. I had the prime rib that was very tender but the crust was a bit salty. The chocolate cake had a very rich taste.

We brought our family of 5 and 3 others from extended family and the experience was pretty good. The staff were well organized and the food was good albeit expensive. The deviled eggs were an amazing appetizer. The dinner for my mom was not cooked correctly and she sent it back. The second time was the charm. I love the... More
