“tasty, relaxing”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

Quick visit mid-afternoon - I had the crab cakes, these were excellent with plenty of fresh crab meat. Delicious fries, too. Arguably a little over-enthusiastic with the seasoning. Very good wine list - I had a glass of their Firestone riesling which stood up to the crab very well. Not cheap but a very nice place to spend an hour or two.

North Carolina crab cakes were DELISH. Everyone in my party enjoyed their meal of shrimp tacos, steak and shrimp. I told the waiter. Was torn between crab cakes and salmon, he said crab cakes with Mac and cheese, he was right. The atmosphere was warm and pretty. I would return here in a heartbeat.

“Take your own wine....”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

I've always said that I believed that Kansas is one of the best kept secrets in America, and every time I visit that thought is reinforced, J.Alexander's restaurant is a great place to eat, with friends or on business the ambience and atmosphere is a credit to the owners for creating the right environment, but then it's down to the local team and management to make it happen, and in Overland Park it really does.
Be prepared to wait if you do not have a booking, it is certainly worth the wait, enjoy a quiet drink whilst waiting the barman knows his job and will make you feel at home, the menu has a great variety of delicious tastes to temp you, beware the portions are a good size so either share or take a doggy bag, if you do not have your own wine then there is a great selection with excellent guide and taste notes, value for money truly excellent......

“First class food without having to get all dressed up!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

One of the best in KC. Very comfortable easy atmosphere with top of the line food. It seems hard to find a place with their quality food that is not too fancy. Best ahi tuna outside Hawaii I have had, consistently time after time. For meat eaters, you will be in heaven.

“Superb Steak-house, great atmoshere...a must try”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Large yet comfortable and cozy atmosphere. The food choice is exceptional and the steaks are just sublime. Have eaten here every single night we stay in Kansas on business - so at least 40 times and I would not go anywhere else. Essential to try it...
