Amazing! Great food, great service and great atmosphere! It gets a little crowded at times but understandably so. They seem to handle it all with teamwork. I recently ran into a server there that I haven't seen in a while.She reminded me that she has been working there for 15 years. Management apparently treats them very well and it shows.

I was visiting from California, and my friend suggested a quick dinner at J Alexander's. Amazing chicken, artichoke, and drinks!

From the moment you arrive, it's a great dining experience. It's a bit on the pricey side, so save it for a celebration! Excellent wine list.

This location of J Alexander's wraps you in comfort and style. Dark tones of wooden panels, leather seating and a few brass accents invite you to relax and enjoy yourself for awhile. The 4 person booths are some of the best anywhere. The bar has enough wide-screen tvs to keep the sports crowd happy and a large alcohol list. The... More

This was our first time to eat at J. Alexander's and chose this place to celebrate my wife's birthday so it was our family of four. We have a special needs daughter who only likes lemonade, milk, and water--lemonade being the strong favorite. We were flabbergasted and severely disappointed to be told they don't offer this basic beverage. I also... More

Food: NY steak was excellent (although a bit salty). Tender and flavorful, and good portion. Came with the house potatos, which were also good. No vegetable included, which was odd. Dessert: Featured carrot cake was rich and huge. One 'piece' fed 3 of us. Drink: House margarita was surprisingly good and packed a bit of a punch. Nice. Service: We... More

Had a great meal here with flawless service. Our server Rene W. was on her game and made suggestions to make the meal even better. Best service in a long time. The French dip, tuna and spinach queso were all awesome. Shoe string fries are the best! Booze was really pricey is my only knock.

This is a busy place for a reason. The food is very good, plenty of choice on the menu. This is not a budget restaurant, but you you get good value for the money

This restaurant, though a chain, is one of the best establishments I've frequented in Livonia. Continually, this restaurant has top notch service, food quality, and ambiance. I am never disappointed and in fact, I try to go there once every couple of months. Since it is a little on the pricer side, it is great for a family gathering, birthday,... More
