Alex Salad, Steaks and sandwiches that are so good... I love J Alexanders. The only negatives are that it can get busy and there can be a wait to get a table and the parking at this location is atrocious when it is busy. Overall, solid restaurant.

J Al's is always a great meal or lunch location. We go as a couple(s) or girls night/day out. We always get great service and food. The well trained staff is a welcome plus. It is always a first choice for family dinner out.

Yes, J. Alexander's is a chain, but they excel in so many ways. The atmosphere is one of the most comfortable and accommodating around. It just exudes class. They have done it right. Where this place is exceptional is in their service. They train their waitstaff to be super conscientious without being over the top. How many times have you... More

I have dined at 2 of the chain, Livonia and most recently Toledo. The good is consistency, the bad is also consistency. My issue is that the chain relies too heavily on sauces of their preferences than that of the diner. I admit to being a bit of a fussy eater, but feel the menu offers too little to accommodate...

This place is a nice setting and is frequented by those seeking a business lunch setting. Dinner dates are great here as well. Upscale atmosphere, but fairly reasonable prices. Excellent food presentation and quality. Love the mac 'n cheese, fish, & chicken fingers!

A smiling, well-dressed staff person opens the door as you enter. An equally welcoming hostess walks you to your table. Along the way, you notice the aesthetically pleasing atmosphere and good-quality decor. Your waiter is friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. The menu is slight, but sufficient. i ordered a green tea and it was the tastiest I've ever had. My ahi... More

I ordered the filet mignon Caesar salad. The serving bowl was huge but the actual amount of food was quite scant. A mere handful of lettuce, a few TINY pieces of rare beef (cold inside) and about 6 huge croutons is what you get for $18! It really was absurd. The salad was totally doused in dressing too. Servers were... More

Went to dinner Sunday night with family. I usually love J Alexander's but I was very disappointed. It was busy, but not crazy. Service was attentive. Food was OK - I had the Ahi Tuna and while the tuna was great it didn't really have much flavor - it was just seared but no real spices etc. the best thing... More

My wife and I went there recently and had a great dinner. Service is always top notch. Always prompt and ready to assist at any time. Food is fantastic and restaurant is clean. A good sign of a clean establishment is how they take care of their bathrooms and they were well kept and no horrible smell. Love going here.
