We eat at J Alexander's fairly often. With family, couples, girls night out, clients. Excellent menu, best entree salads anywhere, great grilled artichokes, fabulous specials. The wood fired pizzas are outstanding, great atmosphere, excellent service. One of my favorite places to eat and always happy with meals. So so good!!

This place was really busy but I guess I just ordered the wrong thing. Didn't get what I thought I was ordering. Told the server but she didn't do anything about it. So I really didn't eat much of my dinner. Left there still needing something to eat.

Went for dinner after driving from Indy. Made the reservation through Open Table, 20 minutes before we got there. They had it, seated right away. Service was great. I had one of their salads it was very good. Husband had hamburger and fries; he loved it . Will remember this place when coming through again.

This is one of our favorite places in Cool Springs. From the Hostesses, to the Servers, to the Bartenders...the service is outstanding! The food is always consistent and is a great fine dining experience. You can take your own bottle of wine in to this establishment if you'd like, which we love to do, even tho there is a fantastic...

I was amazed at how delicious the spare ribs were. Finger licking good! The corn bread is also amazing; comes in a little skillet. Delicious! Wine selections were also many. Most enjoyable. Great service too.

Took 8 customers out to J Alexander's. Both the food and service was outstanding. Most ordered steaks, all were very pleased. The fish I had was very good. Worth every penny!

I eat at J Alexander's two or three times a year and have for several years. It is always a positive experience - the servers are professional at all times, the food excellent, and the helpings are large. I almost always end up taking some home! Highly recommend it.

We brought 25 people w 15 total kids and they were excellent. Treated us like family despite the more elegant setting. Food quality was good but everything was a little pricey compared to similar quality level food elsewhere. Maybe justifiable if you are needing a classy place to take a date or a client. Only 2 or 3 beers on... More
