It's hard to be very enthusiastic about our lunch at J Alexander's, as everything about it was between "OK" and "pretty good". The attentive service was the strong point; the blando salad the weak point. The soup, fish and atmosphere fell squarely into the "meh" zone. The dining experience here feels like it would be very consistent, which, in this... More

I've been coming here since they first opened many years ago. It's always good food and good service. I've started sitting at the bar recently and have had good service there as well. Can get quite jammed on weekends and happy hour. One of my Go-To places

I went to J. Alexander's with my sister for dinner. After not being assigned a server for 15 minutes, we had to flag down a server. We finally order and there's a fly in my sister's salad. We asked for the manager. Ryan Herb came over and from that point everything changed for the better. We were offered a complimentary... More

Sunday lunch with a friend was a winner!!! Arrived shorty before 12 Noon and found many tables open. We were quickly seated and drink orders were taken promptly. The menu is very nice and enhanced by the separate list of daily specials. I was starving and ordered the Baked Potato soup and the Prime Rib French Dip with fries. My... More

J Alexanders is located in a tony shopping mall called Somerset that is home to Neimans, Tumi, Gucci, Louis...you get it. Detroit may be questionable and scary-struggling, but the suburbs are home to major money (Grosse Pointe, Bloomfield Hills etc) so this shopping mall is a destination for more than just errands. Across from J's is an equally tasty Capital... More

I love j Alexander's. I wish I could go here every day. The chiken fingers rock. The French fries are the best!!! The waitresses and waiters are very friendly and our meal always comes on time. My whole family gets very excited to come here. The atmosphere of the restaurant is very friendly and fancy. I REALLYYYYYYYYYY recommend it.

Beside the fact that I just love the Cajun chicken and shrimp pasta, this is my favorite J. Alexander's . If I'm having a bad day the waiter / waitress 's friendliness always makes me feel better. They are very prompt and the food is very good

The food was very tasty, moist, and a very high quality. Prime rib, ahi tuna, etc. Was cooked as requested! Yum! It was our waitress/busboy Shoshauny that was spectacular. She was quick, attentive, professional, and personable. Everyone agreed on all points!

Dine here quite often. I have never been let down by the service staff or the food. I favorr the Steak Maui. Always cooked to order and fresh. Love the Angeline Pinot Noir and the Alex Salad. Quality matches much more expensive places. Can't wait to eat at J's Again. Tip: If you Valet, they will validate your ticket *bonus*... More
