We had reservations for dinner. Extremely disappointed with their trying to seat us at one of the least desirable tables, on a 65 degree day, next to the fire place in the room off from the bar. Guess it beats the kitchen door table!?! But extremely HOT on a day it was 65+! Yes, we did move to another table.... More

This restaurant is now my favorite in the Nashville area. I travel to Nashville to visit my family and i always make it a point to visit this restaurant. The food quality is excellent and it delivered very timely despite the fact that the restaurant is always packed with guests. The staff is very professional and very well trained. Overall... More

I LOVE this place! They are very consistent. I value a restaurant that serves food that tastes great no matter who is working! The restaurant can have a wait but they do accept reservations. J Alexander's is our go to place and we eat there as often as we can. Even with every table full, you can still have a... More

We've never been disappointed with a meal at J Alexander's. Tonight was no exception. Food quality is very high. Kitchen grill area is visible to main dining room. Steaks and seafood are the main items on a long menu. Leave room for their trademark scrumptious desserts. Service staff are obviously well trained and appear to enjoy their work. Ambiance is...

I've been a customer of J Alexander's for years. There's a reason I keep going back, whether it's for a business lunch or dinner with friends. The food is consistently good and the wait staff is extremely well trained. The employees work as a team - and it shows. No matter what the occasion or your menu choice, you will... More

My friends and I went to J. Alexander's after a long day of shopping. The service was top-notch, and we didn't have to wait long for a table. Two of us has the grilled pork tenderloin with bang bang sauce. The tenderloin was very tender and good. The bang bang sauce was not quite as spicy as I would have... More

Seems to be the place for the social in crowd with what I would call overpriced but good food. Wait can be rather long during the mid day rush hour from the people working in the surrounding office buildings.

Reliably excellent chain for American classics. High quality food and efficient, knowledgable, and professional wait staff. Hickory grill makes delicious great steaks and other meats. Excellent classic prime rib that's among the best I've had anywhere. Fresh fish options (like the tasty Swordfish I had this time) are worth a try as well. Generous and tasty salads. Freshly baked sourdough... More

I have visited J. Alexander's on many occasions but this visit may well be my last. Our party of five, had to send soup back because it was not hot. French fries were so salty they were sent back for a fresh batch the twice baked potato was over salted and sent back. But the worst part was the $33.00... More
