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.

I always make it a point to stop in J. Alexander's when I am at the St. John's Town Center in Jacksonville, FL. The food is awesome and the staff is always great! Everything on the menu is a crash pleasure. Love those Burgers!!!

LOVE that they now take reservations!! You walk in...and are greeted by superfriendly hostesses. Our server was bubbly and anxious to please. Our guests ordered the crab cakes and zucchini...she said they were perfect. I had the trout...the rice was delicious...a bit much sauce and not nearly enough pecans for the $24 price tag. Always good...

We liked the decor. It is quiet and a little dark. The calamari appetizer was excellent, arriving very hot and crispy. Two of our party had the prime rib and both were cooked to just right. I had the cilantro shrimp and it was very good (even the leftovers). We split a zucchini side and it was enough for two.... More

Really courteous, professional service; lovely ambiance; NOT noisy; great wine selection; terrific menu. I have eaten there so many times I can't remember what I've had, but have always loved the food. The one drawback, which obviously doesn't affect my opinion of the place at all, is that they are not equipped (at least they weren't when I asked) to... More

My wife is a personal trainer and love to go to J's on Sunday and Monday with their prime rib special, their prime rib is the most tender you will have hands down. The service is always superior and the management is always on their game no matter the situation.

My husband and I went for lunch today. We have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. He had the crab cakes which he said were very good and had a little kick to them. They give you two probably 4oz crab cakes and a side dish. I had the fresh fish sandwich which today was redfish. I... More

My wife and I have eaten here several times and we are always pleased with the experience. This past Friday we decided to have an early dinner after a visit to the nearby Eye Doctor. We decided to eat at J Alexander's and definitely enjoyed the meal. We started with the colossal buttermilk onion rings and it is a Colossal... More
