I went to J Alexander's recently for dinner while on business trip. The restaurant is close to Cool Springs Galleria around multiple restaurants. The restaurant has large menu including good wine selection. I had the filet kebobs and it was very good. My work associate had the pork tenderloin and he really enjoyed it. The service was attentive and friendly. It is large restaurant that has nice bar area. I recommend the restaurant due to its location, good food and prompt service.

Dress casual or formal it don't matter J. Alex delivers great food. My favorite is the rattlesnake pasta. Flavorful with good spices that provide the bite of heat, thus the name.

Crowded and took a long time to get a seat. Ordered the Pork. Mostly fat a cold. Potatos also cold and crusty.

I will say the bar tenders were attentive and friendly.

Not worth the price for the food. Go somehwere else.

Greatest food I have ever had from most of them was in Franklin and another in Boca Raton , Fl also. Go early and expect to wait the food is that good to wait on for an hour . But most the time it ismuch sooner. Great food and a lot of Country Stars eat at this one from Brentwood and Franklin area. Look around you may be sitting next to a Huge star . I have eaten there many times and the food is spectacular.

J Alexander's is a chain, but not your ordinary chain. All the servers are well-trained and willing to accomodate diners. Their martinis are a great value with that "side-car". This is our place to go for guaranteed good food, good service and a friendly atmosphere. Downside - they don't take reservations. They do take call aheads.
