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

My family ate dinner here for Mothers Day. Service was good and the food was excellent. Drinks were strong and delicious. Both my wife and our two sons were more than satisfied with their selections. Definitely try the Mac and cheese.

We went to have lunch with a friend of mine. It's the second J.Alexander's I had food at. This is in a nice shopping mall called the Sommerset Mall and reflects the elegance of the mall itself in terms of interior design. Food was very good as I expected and knew from previous J. Alexander's visits. Recommend it and would... More

My husband and I used to go to J Alexanders quite often when we were at Somerset shopping and sit at the bar to grab a bite. We almost always got the prime rib because it was melt in your mouth best in the area. We went back last night and sat at the bar looking forward to our prime... More

Delicious food each and every time! You can't go wrong with any food item on the menu. The brick oven artichokes are to die for! Really, that good! And the prime rib sandwich never fails, fish always good and the cocktails are delicious with a generous sidecar. A professional waitstaff rounds out the evening - and don't forget to go... More
