Went there last night with my family including 2 children. I wouldn't call this a children's place by any means. No children's menu, however I wasn't expecting that. We don't always like the children's menus because they are generally low quality deep fried food. Prime rib was 12oz with potatoes for $25 which I found reasonable. Broccoli as a side was $5. We shared 2 appys and the total with no bar bill was $140 with tip. My daughter ordered Rotisserie chicken and it was a 1/2 of a big chicken with potatoes for $16 which I thought was good value in a place like that. Lemonade was excellent and home made. Natalie our server was very nice and efficient.

With family visiting from out of state, we chose this restaurant because we've had such good experiences at other J. Alexander's. From the very beginning we were set up for disappointment. We were being seated at a large table and we asked if we could go to a booth. After a bit of huffing we were guided to a large booth. When ordering, we asked for a substitution for my kids -who were ordering adult portions of salmon (a $25 entree) - and we're told they couldn't do it without an up charge. Another adult asked for veggies instead of a starch in her meal and was told the same thing. It seemed like an inconvenience even to have dressing on the side. It was difficult to get servers attention. Martini was weak. The french dip sandwich - which is always outstanding- was fatty and short on any real beef and the bread was hard and difficult to chew. And the portions were smaller than any of our other visits, particularly with our salads. It was almost laughable.

We aren't ready to write off the whole chain just yet, but based on this experience we will not return to this particular restaurant.

The restaurant was very nice, great food (prime rib) and the happy hour prices were a draw all on their own.

Picked this restaurant based on TripAdvisor and Yelp reviews. Glad we did. Some have said that prices were high. Maybe for some parts of the country but we felt, coming from the northeast that we got a bargain along with excellent service and food. Crab Cakes rate up there with those I've had in MD. MahiMahi/Couscous were said to be delicious. The Creme Brulee is plenty to share.
Enjoy!

Their onion rings are huge! Their wait staff are very attentive and are present without being overbearing. Their food portions are extremely generous and the cost is moderate.
