Took 5 work associates to a dinner at J. Alexander's 10 days ago on a Tuesday evening. Food was so-so. Service was average. Took a long time for drinks and appetizers to be delivered. My prime rib was slightly cold and the roasted artichokes were very undercooked. I've always found the food at J. Alexander's very top notch, so I... More

We celebrated our anniversary at this location. I made call ahead seating, and we were ushered in immediately upon arrival. Our server was attentive and patient with us. Drinks were refilled before our glasses were empty. The food was hot, well plated, and delicious. Our family has bbq ribs, half chicken, chicken salad sandwich, and chicken tender plated. Servings were... More

Every time we eat here, we have a great experience. Most recently, it was for my birthday in October 2016. The service is always impeccable - outstanding servers who are attentive and professional. The food is always delicious. I love the atmosphere and the open air kitchen design - hoping to try a wood-fired pizza next time. The chicken tenders... More

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.
