We normally go to the one near the Dayton mall but meet up with some friends from Kentucky here. They all got pasta .. the seafood Alfredo and others got the rattlesnake which does not contain rattlesnake. I opted for brunch fair .. the quiche which came wth potatoes and small salad. We all loved it.

Fellow traveler, there is a lot better places near by. Service was OK, at best. Food was not great and the price tag is ridiculous for what you get. A dinner at best, but priced as fine dining. Ambiance is just OK. No thank you.

Great wine and food selection. We love the cheeseburger and fries. Good for a great meal without breaking the bank.

I had dinner with a few friends and was thoroughly impressed with the service as well as the food. I had the 10 oz prime rib, mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. The food was seasoned to perfection. I didn't have to add salt, pepper or any sauces. The prime rib was so tender, it just melted in my mouth. The... More

I come to J's 2-3 times a week. The bar staff is typically top shelf. I go there for brunch twice a month and the service sucks. The Waffle House has better servers. No coffee refills, had to ask for silverware, and water refills. Maybe if they can't have good servers on the patio they shouldn't open it. Sunday's are... More

I've eaten at multiple J Alexander's over the years, but this was the first time at this location. It was much more up-scale than the others and the tables/booths were very spacious. For starters we had the Guacamole and Chips and it was fresh and tasty. For dinner, my wife had the Filet Mignon ka-bob and thought it tasted incredible.... More

We visited the restaurant with a large group (15) during mid-evening hours (7:30 - 9:00). The servers were very accomodating, including adding 2 surprise visitors to our table with no issue and with pace. They juggled multiple bills with varying types of orders, and did not pressure us to leave, despite other folks waiting. I enjoyed the salad I ordered,... More

I have visited several locations which have all been pretty great. This one is no exception. Service was top-notch and the steaks are amazing. I've also tried the salads at other locations, which are all uniquely good as well. I don't think I've had anything bad here. Prices are reasonable for the quality. Always a good option to go here...
