“Excellent food & excellent staff”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

J Alexanders is my family's favorite restaurant. We frequent them often. The atmosphere is very appealing. We have gone there after our children have played football, and we have gone there for romantic dinners. Food is excellent, and the staff is always professional. The price has increased over the past year; we have had to budget our trips there.

“Good steak; nice wine list”
Reviewed September 25, 2012 via mobile

We both chose steak, and they were cooked perfectly and tender. Dani, who showed us to our seat but was not our primary waitress, was extremely knowledgable about the wines and helped us make a good choice. The tuna salad was excellent; tender, seared Ahi tuna. The carrot cake for dessert was excellent, but too generous a portion, even shared between two. Overall, a nice traditional American steak and seafood restaurant.

I agree with another reviewer that it is noisy, but that seems to be a growing trend -- large spaces with little noise dampening. Nonetheless, we were able to carry on a conversation and the rest was background noise.

Thank Ladira

“Delicious Prime Rib!”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

We met a couple of my husband's friends for lunch at J Alexander's for their Prime Rib and the food was out of this world! The only place that we have been able to find that can cook a Prime Rib correctly is Lawry's in Dallas...... To find a Prime Rib cooked to perfection at lunch was awesome :) We left very satisfied! The waitstaff was attentive, the atmosphere was lovely and we could not have been happier! Thumbs up all the way :)
