Ambiance is beautiful. I really enjoyed the low lighting and how the restaurant was laid out. Service could use some improvement. We sat at our table for a good 10 minutes before ordering our drinks. Our server had a flat affect and did nothing to indulge us in an uplifting hospitable experience. My guest ordered the fried chicken sandwich and... More

The ladies here were awesome, I stayed in a hotel nearby for business and came here almost every evening for social hour. The ladies were alway professional and courteous.

We went to J Alexanders a few months ago and the food was average, but the service was still excellent. We went there again tonight and what a poor experience. We were taken to our table after the couple who checked in after us. We ordered drinks and food as soon as we sat down. We were told another waitress... More

We went recently for my birthday dinner, and everyone at the table was raving about their meals. Everything was perfect and servings generous. I had the prime rib, and it was the best I've had in years, anywhere. The wait staff gave impeccable service and their CARROT CAKE....I'd heard about it but didn't imagine why folks raved....until I had some.... More

Also very nice atmosphere. Our food did not come out at the same time which was a little awkward with clients. Otherwise food was delicious and more than enough portions. Servers were friendly.

We have dined here several times when visiting relatives in Ohio. It is always great. Most recently we had a family dinner with outstanding food. The deviled eggs appetizer was wonderful as was the house salad. Several of us had filet mignon entrees (perfectly prepared) with some of us having the amazing loaded baked potato and others had the creamy... More

J Alexander's is one of my favorite places to eat in the Dayton, Ohio area. The food is always very good and the service for a chain restaurant is excellent. I have visited this location many times, and have never been disappointed. I have tried many different entree's and have enjoyed them all. Price wise they can be a bit... More

When I want a good steak at a "fair" price, we go to the Oakwood Club. We have been there many times, and the steaks are always excellent, prepared just the way you order them, the sides are always very good, the service is great and so is the atmosphere. We've been here several times as I'm a native Daytonian... More

Our first time at J. Alexander's was for a friend's birthday dinner. Our party of 4 had several entrees, all of which were cooked to perfection! From melt-in-your-mouth prime rib to massive fried shrimp, and cooked carrots which were very nearly orgasmic, I wouldn't change a thing. An excellent meal was finished off with incredibly indulgent desserts including some heavenly... More
