We have not been to J Alexander's in a number of years, but decided to try it again Sunday night for dinner. We were pleasantly surprised. The Chef's Recommendations were outstanding, and that is what we went with. My wife had the 10oz Prime Rib with mashed potatoes. She truly enjoyed it, it was cooked just right, very tender and juicy with good flavor. The portion size was perfect. I had the 10oz NY Strip with mashed potatoes instead of fries. Again it was prepared perfectly and the portion size was more then enough. For a starter we shared a Caesar Salad. The Salad was huge and the dressing complimented the croutons and romaine perfectly. At $20 for the Prime Rib and $25 for the Strip Steak, it was a great value. The Salad was only $6.00, since we had entrees. This meal was a super value.
As far as service goes, we sat in the bar area and had the bartender as our waiter. Because the bar was a bit busy we did not see him to often, but that was made up for by everyone else serving us.
Great food and great service means we will be coming back.
