We were looking for a peaceful dinner with good food. This is the place. We were promptly seated upon arrival. I really enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant. There was jazz music playing in the background. We ordered the deviled eggs as an appetizer, which was surprisingly good. I do wish they had a better selection of appetizers. For our... More

We stopped here for a quick lunch before heading to a doctor's appointment. We were seated promptly and waited on promptly. My husband ordered the Shrimp PoBoy and I had the Alexander Salad. The poboy was loaded with shrimp but he said they were very greasy. He enjoyed the skinny fries. I had the salad and it was good but... More

This has been one of my favorite restaurants for many years since I arrived in Baton Rouge. I have scheduled many business lunches there. I hadn't been to J Alexander's in several months, so I'm hoping I just encountered an off day. Or it may have been a change in chef. I ordered one of my favorites dishes, the pork... More

My travel group enjoyed a good steak dinner here - we each had the Maui Steak, which came with the famed mashed potatoes. The wine selection was good, but the steak was awesome! Our waiter, whose name I have since forgotten, was most attentive and provided great service.

We frequent this restaurant several times a year when we are in town and are never disappointed. We love the food and the adorable wait staff. They are always friendly and prompt. Love the atmosphere as well.

J Alexander's offers a nice white table and napkin lunch. The atmosphere is cool and comfortable, especially on a hot summer day in south Louisiana. The restaurant is located in front of the Mall of Louisiana with easy access to Bluebonnet Blvd. My husband had the Prime Rib sandwich with French fries. The meat was tender and delicious yet the...

Eleven of us went to eat lunch at J Alexander and we were seated within 5 minutes. We had a really friendly waitress and additional staff helping us. Food and drinks arrived quickly and were exactly what we ordered. We had refills on drinks without having to ask for them. Portions were generous and delicious! Several of us had to... More

I was really expecting a lot from this restaurant because they're based on a Houston's like in the New Orleans. They ran out of shrimp so we had to change our orders after they had been placed. The waiter told us it would be a discount on our bill for the inconvenience and there was not. May just have been... More

When I walked into J Alexander's, I felt as if I had been transported back to the famous Hollywood restaurants of the 1940's and 1950's. The style is classic, the wood is rich and deep red-brown in color and the lighting is soft and subdued. The music is a classic jazz-like sound reminiscent of a fine New York supper club.... More
