My family ate there for dinner, first of all they don't take reservation for large parties which 6 people is large for them but the front of the house was very accomadating and offered us drinks and the young kids French fries. From there it went down hill. The service was ok, not great and the food was definitely not worth coming back for. The deserts were really good though. We were at a small table and could not hear the person speak across the table.

My husband, daughter and I ate at J. Alexander's for dinner and It was wonderful, the service and atmosphere was totally magnificent. We had never been to a restaurant that had waiters and waitresses as good as theirs were you can tell they don't hire just anyone. The food was great to, and we spent 130.00 but it was well worth it. We will most definitely return here.

I thought the food was delicious, but a bit expensive for what we got. My family and friends were very pleased with the atmosphere and it was near our hotel.

It was a pricey lunch. Just the two of us for lunch with a glass of wine and a beer cost $80 with an appropriate tip. Service was excellent, and their friendliness is unsurpassed. However, the food is just so so in quality. We tried their mac & cheese which so many like and found it wanting. If you should choose to eat at this restaurant, be sure to try the key lime pie. It was the outstanding part of the meal. Houston's is so much better!

This restaurant has a great atmosphere and low lighting; would be a great date place. Food is consistently good especially the daily specials. The drinks are pricey but good selection. I have eaten here many times and would recommend this.
