Ordered prime rib at suggestion of server. Said best you can find. Ordered med rare. The meat showed up rare and tough with no marbling and with no moisture on the plate (I had asked the aus jus be side-plated). Knew something was wrong when there was no blood and it was rare. Meat must have been left out for... More

Six of us were there for Sunday Brunch/Lunch and enjoyed the food and the service. The menu was adequate, though not huge, and everyone enjoyed themselves.

Ate at the back bar, which I still prefer. My wife and I were here on Friday night, crowded but found a space. Sat beside a waitress who had moved away and back in town to vote . She was charming and everyone came up to hug her. The people there really care for the patrons and the food is... More

The food is consistently good. Great flavors, nice portions, and a varied menu. The staff is well-trained, friendly and attentive. Their salads are large and satisfying, the burgers are tasty, and their steaks are nicely prepared. This place seems to be able to remain fresh and relevant in its approach over time. When looking for a consistently good meal, but... More

My boyfriend and I visited randomly on a Sunday night. We didn't have to wait for a table, which was awesome. The Mac & cheese is very unique, and the steak tacos were okay (steak was a little tough). I had a Caesar salad which was very fresh. Mackenzie was our waitress and she was great. Be careful because they... More

This restaurant has been updated/remodeled since my last visit. The look is more upscale. They still have a great wait staff and the same delicious food. My favorite is their chicken pasta soup. Their Mexico City Spinach Con Queso is extra thick and extra tasty.

We had 12 people in our party and had a 1pm reservation on a busy Sunday. We had to wait for the table for about 5 minutes so they asked us to pick a few appetizers and they would have them sent to our table free of charge. We sat down and the service was amazing !!! We had two... More

We love J. Alexander's. It is an excellent place to go for a special dinner for a couple or a nice dinner with friends. Every time we go, the food and service has been wonderful!

We visited for a celebratory event. We were greeted by friendly hostesses who quickly sat us. Our waiter, can't remember his name, promptly appeared and took our drink and appetizer order. My wife and I ordered the Steak Maui to share. Our son ordered chicken fingers to share with our 21 month old grandson. Our daughter-in-law ordered the Shaved Prime... More
