I visited this restaurant twice during my stay in Deerfield. They provide a quick business lunch. Group dinners are also excellent. My team had a wonderful time here. They make the best steaks and have wonderful desserts.

Situated along a prime route with many offices, J. Alexander is always busy, primarily with workers from local offices. The bar area is extensive and always packed. Menu is great and food si excellent.
