I've been to this place...probably 50 times...and it is always a great experience. Both the food and service are very hard to beat. With a wide variety of offerings, you can always find something new and delicious.

Even though this is a "chain restaurant", it is a staple go to for us. It is consistent in good food and good service. I love the salads, but everything is good. And the fire roasted pizza is yummy!

If you're looking for atmosphere, presentation, quality service and consistency of food prep, this is your place. I have lived in middle Tennessee for over 20 years and J. Alexander's is one of my "go to" restaurants.

J A's never disappoints. I especially like the outdoor space at the Cool Springs location. Food and service can't be beat.

WE live in Franklin and this is one of our favorite places to eat. Great place for lunch or dinner. Be prepared to wait on Friday and Saturday. the do not take reservations. The wait is worth it. Food is great, service is wonderful.

The service here is always predictable and by that i mean very good. One of our "go to" places, I've never been let down. Pricey? Maybe. But they earn every penny. Never a disappointment. And the menu is varied enough that everyone can satisfy their craving.

I love this place. It's. Beautiful and inciting. Everything they make is just the best and if it's not, they will fix it until you are happy. The always dapper servers work using the flow method which means that they work as a team and you want for nothing. J. Alexander's is Nashville's Houston's.

I have never had a bad experience here. The food is fantastic and the service is superb. I love the grilled chicken salad, their burger and their pizzas. The pizzas are made in a wood burning oven and they are so good you'd think this place was solely a pizza joint. The servers are so attentive and make it an... More

The layout is a bit odd for a restaurant, but the food is good. It's not fall down and come back over and over great, but it's good enough to come back for. Stick to the basic breakfast cause the price doesn't really warrant the value. Makes it a for instead of a five.

Call ahead worked great at lunch. Steak was cooked to perfection. Service was excellant. Parking is the only issue.
