• High Quality, friendly wait staff • Great atmosphere • Varied menu to please anyone • Fast service (was not busy yet) • I had a cheeseburger that was one high class, superduper cheeseburger! Great fries too! • Wife had fish tacos she said were to die for. • My guess is this is true for everything on their menu.

Ginger beer and the chicken finger app all very good. HUGE stack of fried chicken breast pieces, big pile of crispy shoestring potatoes along with BBQ sauce, honey mustard sauce and ketchup. The only downside was the side of coleslaw which was also huge but full of parsley. Not a fan of parsley. Service was excellent fast and friendly.

My brother and were eating on the patio on a beautiful summer evening. We had just received our appetizers when our table was approached by an older, well dressed man. He came up to our table leaned in and said "I'm f#%$ed up". He was not loud, but was swaying and had a drink in his hand. At first we... More

This restaurants looks very nice and the decor is very elegant. Food was very average and bland. Service was very good. Don't think I would return

I had a great business lunch here. Honestly I had hoped to go to J Gilberts but it wasn't open for lunch. The food was terrific. Trout is my weakness and it was GREAT! The rice on the side was great (maybe a nice side of sauteed veggies would have been better than cole slaw - which wasn't bad). My... More

If you had out of town guests and wanted to take them to a place where you knew they wouldn't be disappointed, but also wouldn't be over the top expensive, J Alexander's would be the place. And maybe that's still the case, but not tonight, and not with the waitress we had this evening. Granted, we had no out of... More

We stopped here yesterday for a late lunch/early dinner. The hostess who seated us was very friendly. The first young man who came out wanted to take a drink order. We had just been seated and didn't know yet. So, he told us he'd get us water and let us look at the menu. He came back, plunked the water... More

I hate to admit that a chain restaurant is one of my favorites, but this one is! I have eaten here a lot and I am always pleased.

The waiter was very friendly and nice. But the food was not that great. I actually felt a little queasy after the dinner
