I've loved J. Alexander's for years and it was my go to place when I lived in TN. This location is also very convenient but with all the other options in town I've only popped in twice.

The Ahi Tuna Steak is amazing. Perfectly prepared with Tor dipping sauce. One of my favorites. They also serve warm bread but you have to ask for it, they don't automatically bring it to your table.

Went for lunch on Monday and apparently it was a weekly special. Outstanding. I sat at the bar, service was great, and the meal was promptly served. Can't wait to go back there.

Everyone enjoyed their entrees of Fish Tacos, Crab cakes, Shrimp Taco's, We felt the crab cakes were over priced with a huge mound of French fries hiding the... More

We were in the area for several days for a Mayo Clinic appointment. Ate at a number of places, We are real foodies. Our first visit here was a winner and we can't wait to go back in December. We shared the wood grilled artichoke, we knew it would be a little messy but it was worth it. Perfect char... More

I ordered the deviled eggs as our appetizer....very good.I ordered the french-dip for lunch. It was just awful.....the bread was mushy and the meat was grisly and tasted awful. I don't like the fries that serve... More

We REALLY enjoyed our meal at J Alexander's. Restaurant was clean and we were offered the option of black linens ---- very appreciated! Food was delicious - we had the chicken special - atmosphere was very nice. It was a quiet atmosphere and waitresses Amber and Allie were efficient and friendly. Decor is modern with a traditional "twist". We definitely... More

Some mistakes-but not worth waiting for correction. Drinks took a while to come out but overall the food was pretty good.

Had a delightful business lunch with a colleague. The service was just right, just enough not over the top and friendly. The ambiance was nice but not too loud. The food was excellent as well.

Thank Ron S
