3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Got back after over a year I was last in town, and things seem to have changed for the worst. I found the main course honey glazed and therefore too sweet for me. Smashed potatoes had less of a potato taste then before and the steak was quite tough, despite being medium rare. Not sure I'll be back.

I had a reunion with family and friends here. The service and the food were outstanding. All I can say when you find a place this good you just can't get enough. I can't wait for my next trip back to eat here again. Oh and yes I had the prime rib!!!

I've always enjoyed J Alexander's. The food is good, the service is prompt and attentive, and overall the value is decent (except for the somewhat ridiculous uncharge for salads). I understand they have been sold so we'll see how that goes but my most recent two experiences have both been consistent with what I've experienced for a number of past... More

Been going there for years and was always great. Steaks and Prime Rib were to die for. BUT it seems they have been sold to Redlands and the food quality is way down. Ordered a Fliet Mignon medium rare. It came sliced in half and well done. Spoke to the manager who did apologize and said he would get me... More

Best prime rib around. The whole meal is actually too much for one, but the Prime Rib sandwich is just right. Service is also great.

J Alexander's is one of our Favorite restaurants! I LOVE the Salmon with the orzo and the Flemings salad is so good! The people are always very nice too. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu, everything looks great!

Make reservations! And, if you like quiet, then it's really not the place for you. But if you just want a good meal, then you picked the right place. My husband had the filet and it was cooked to perfection and very tender. I ordered the chicken Milanese and while good, it could have used more sauce. I also had... More

We had a group of 10 which they seated us in their private dining area. Area is big enough for double that amount of people depending on table setup. Staff was great, if we had a need they met it. Nice clean restaurant. Food was awesome, Lots of steak and prime ribs and everyone cleared their plates. This place can... More

Loved the prime rib! Cooked perfectly and had great flavor. Not everyone can get prime rib right. Have been a fan of their salads here for years...and the croissant just tops it off perfectly.

I came here with my family and we ordered two appetizers along with our meals, ordering the appetizers first of course, and they brought them all out at once making the table unbearably full. What is the point of ordering appetizers if they do not come out before the meal? The Manhattan I ordered was good but served in the... More
