We go often for drinks and apps at the bar. The bar staff is always friendly and helpful and pour generous drinks to your liking. (Love how they never waste the extra in the shaker but give it to you in a little glass in a glass of ice - always a nice extra touch!). Food is always good. Most... More

You won't be disappointed by choosing J Alexander at the St. John's town center. The service, the menu and atmosphere is a two thumbs up👍👍. The Menu has a great variety of chicken, seafood and beef. It's Always a pleasure to go there for lunch or dinner.

As always, we had a great meal and Parker provided great service. The prime rib was amazing and the mac and cheese was also excellent. This is the reason J Alexander's is our go to for special occasions.

This restaurant was a great find. The menu is great and the desserts are even better. They have an on site wonderful chef who is constantly offering daily specials. I look forward to all my future visits. It's a little off the beaten path but way worth a visit.

Jay's is our go to spot. We moved to Fernadina from Columbus Ohio and one of the places we knew were going to miss is Jay's. We were so happy when we found out that there was one in Town Center. We drive 50 mins to go eat there often for special occasions or any time we are close in... More

J Alexander's is well decorated with a very attentive, friendly and attractive staff. Midweek dinner could have contributed to the quick service due to minimal patrons at the time. Comfortable setting and good food selection. Devil's eggs and calamari for appetizer were pretty good. Ordered the crab cakes and they were sitting on top of too much sauce. The crab... More

This is located in the midst of the Town Center Shopping Mall. A great place to have some really good food. It is a higher priced restaurant. But know because it is in midst of a shopping mall, not everyone who eats there are dressed for a nice dinner out on the town to match the higher priced tagged dinner.... More

Since I've lived in Jacksonville, the number one recommended steak house was J Alexander. We decided to wait until something special came along to go. We decided our 33rd Anniversary was just that occasion. The staff and customer service was really good. The food, on the other hand, in my opinion, was way below our expectations. I ordered a medium... More
