This is one of the nicer looking restaurants in the city. Lots of wood, dramatic layout and roomy booths. Good for larger parties. Broadly appealing menu items served for lunch and dinner.

We eat at JA every few months and they have yet to let us down. I don't even look at the menu as I know what I'm having... Steak tacos. These are the best tacos I've had anywhere and I'd highly recommend them. They have just enough spice to give them a nice but not overpowering kick. They also come... More

Good beer selection, though nothing on tap. Server was nice and courteous and gave recommendations. Burger very tasty. Big selection of sides, the broccoli was very good.

The food was good and the staff was friendly. I wouldn't of thought this was a chain. I'd suggest a reservation as the place had a lot of guest. It is pricey so be prepared for that.

It did not require a wait and seated quickly. We had dinner with our grandsons and their choice! We all had different menu choices and we were all. Pleased, with our choice!

I go to J Alenanders about 2 to 3 times a month and i usually get the steak maui and it has never ever disappointed me. I have never had a steak like the steak maui and i have never found another restaurant that has one even close to the steak maui at J Alexanders.

Great food and environment. You will have to wait for seating even with a reservation, but make the reservation. On the pricey side but food is great as is the originality of the cocktails. I go for the steak every time!

I ordered a Caesar salad with romaine lettuce extra dressing on the side, and blackened salmon on top of the salad, and a serving of macaroni and cheese. The server ordered my dish just as I requested he was on time with the pepper ill, the server was attentive without being intrusive. I always enjoy dining at j Alexander's.
