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

We had another good meal at this local favorite. It was Saturday night just after another Buckeye victory and the place was very busy, however our table was ready at the time of our reservation and the service was excellent. This is a nice place with a good menu and consistently good food. The deviled egg appetizers are a great... More

My wife and I headed out for dinner on Labor Day evening and the third try was the charm as they say. We had planned on visiting some of our favorite bartenders at Eddie Merlot's; however, Eddie's was closed. We then remembered the good experiences that we have had at Polaris Grill and headed to the other side of 71... More

• 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
