Travelling in Chicago area last week, we stopped at J. Alexander's for dinner. Food was fresh and good. Had a traditional burger and the meat is ground daily. Cooked for perfection. Extensive menu.

A group of us stopped in for lunch after a bossiness meeting. Service was good as was the food. The salads are enormous, so be careful if you order one and an entrée!

I had the Cajun prime rib sandwich with grilled zucchini and both were delicious! One of those meals that you keep eating even thought you're full because it is sooo good!

The atmosphere is a bit noisy at times but the wait... More

We brought our new grand child at 4:00 in the afternoon. Perfect time to bring a young child as it was not chaotic or noisy. Staff was very welcoming, food delicious and atmosphere was very comfortable! J Alexanders is always a good choice!

Went to J Alexanders only to find out it is now called Redlands. Had a delightful waitress who has worked at this restaurant for 5 years. Her experience showed. She recommended the chicken fingers which were far and away some of the best I have ever tasted. The coleslaw was a bit dry. The manager stopped by our table to... More
