A couple of my girlfriends and I visited this restaurant after a comedy show on a Friday night, celebrating a birthday, arriving about 10:00pm. It has a beautiful atmosphere and was greeted and served by pleasant people. The server was very knowledgable. However, Several items my friend was asking about they did not have, but she was able to get... More

Our evening began by our daughter being sprayed by the hostess who was wiping down the table behind us, as she sprayed cleaner and it hit our daughter's head. Next, we had just received our cocktails when there was a loud noise and a fire extinguisher was knocked off of the wall at a station behind our table. Somehow smoke... More

J Alexander's is a chain restaurant that is on our business dinner rotation about once every three weeks. Service has always been excellent. Reservations are recommended at busy times. The bar area is expansive, and the dining area is open with ample room. I usually have steak, but the menu has a varied selection for everyone. The signature carrot cake... More

Rachael was our server and we enjoyed her immensely. Knowledgeable, polite, timely. Just a pleasure ! We had the filet mignon and it was perfect. We love the flavor. My big disappointment ? I can't get a Stella or a Heineken ! I'm not into spending $7 or $8 dollars for a craft beer I may like. They use to... More

It has been a while since we have been to J Alexanders, and just as I remember, this restaurant has a very nice atmosphere. The menu has a variety of options, however our food was just OK. The highlight of the meal was by far the desert. The chocolate cake was wonderful and a very generous portion. We had a... More

Had a full day of activities so got to the restaurant late. Food and service were very good. My hotel was nearby and they recommended the restaurant--gave me a coupon for a free dessert.

My wife and I ate here on Labor Day for dinner. I realize that it was a Holiday, but the service was terrible and much to our surprise the manager never came to check on our table - even though he had to know we had issues with the food and service. Instead at around 845p he grabbed a table... More
