Food is good, wait staff friendly, but the restaurant is very noisy and hard to carry on any conversation. I guess that is the trade off.

I like J Alexander's because of it's consistency. Having been dining there for over 10 years now, I always know that I will be greeted by smiling hosts, the dining room is always impecable, the staff is always neat and professional, and the food is terrific. There aren't too many restaurants that offer this predictable consistency. Always a treat to dine here.

I walked in a bit after the lunch rush and just wanted a salad. The menu looked promising with a few to choose from. I tried the Grilled Chicken Salad. Wow was I surprised how fast it was served, how good it looked (see photo) and how great it tasted. I will go again next time i'm back for a visit. I was surprised to find myself back in my car within 25 minutes of driving into their lot, without feeling like I rushed my meal.

We have driven by this restaurant many times, but I am happy we finally stopped in. The service was very good and fast. The menu had a decent variety and the specials for the evening we were there were excellent.

The wait is unbelievable at lunch time if you aren't there by 11:30 but it is worth it. The prices are not lunch friendly but the food is delish! My favorite hmmm, hard to decide but great food everytime. The chicken soup is the BEST! I don't like the cold rice/pasta stuff orzo, I think it was called. Go by 11:00 a.m. on weekdays or wait until after the rush!!! You can always eat at the bar, which isn't bad but it's too loud and poor service in the bar area.
