In town for a day meeting we needed lunch and decided on J Alexander's. I was surprised at how upscale it was, as well as how busy it was for lunch. Daily specials, wine list, and above average service made it a great experience overall. Smoked salmon appetizer was very good, and the French dip sandwich was as well. Meals... More

This restaurant has good atmosphere and great food but, al a cart. Rather expensive, not a place one would go to every night.

I ordered the pecan crusted trout with spinach for a side. The trout was nicely prepared and it was HUGE! Honestly enough to feed 3 or 4 people! The spinach was meh. My husband order the tuna with smashed potatoes and they were both very good. We would definitely eat here again on our next visit.

I eat at J Alexander at least once per week and is usually good. But tonight my husband ordered the pork tenderloin with the bangbang sauce. The pork was way undercooked and the meat was smothered in a nasty, bottled asian chili sauce of very poor quality. The meat was sliced and there was at least a half cup of... More

It is sad for me to write this review. Several weeks ago my daughter and I had lunch there and it was amazing, both service and food. We went last night and our server was deplorable. We were there for a celebration, it was the honorees choice place to eat, and I did not want to dampen the spirit of... More

J. Alexander's is a little on the pricey side for our every day eating, but it is our go to for a date. The Rattlesnake Pasta is my favorite and the salad is filled with good stuff. My husband's favorite is the ribs which they smoked for a LONG amount of time. I also love the "u" shaped bench seating.

Went here on a solo trip. & they treated me very well, it was a bit noisy but the service was excellent. I loved that the manager even came to my table to make sure everything was good. & my waiter was great and always kept a smile on his face! Will be back.

My husband and I ate dinner here while in Chattanooga. It is next to the Courtyard where we were staying so VERY handy. They were BUSY! We had a reservation and a good thing we did. Our server was gracious and friendly. The bartender did a fantastic job with my cosmo and his Manhattan. We ordered the fried oyster basket... More

Excellent selection on the menu, very generous portions, be prepared to take some home. All tables are very private in the arrangement of the restaurant.

My wife and I decided to have our Anniversary dinner there Sunday night. We arrived about 5:45 and was seated promptly at a huge semi circle booth. It was not crowded but filled up some during our meal. I can't remember our waiters name but he did a nice job. It had been a really long time since our last... More
