We had out of town guests and chose J Alexanders because it was close to their hotel. My problems began when I tried to make reservation for a table of 6 at 6:30 on a Saturday night. They don't take phone in reservations on the weekends, but directed me to the website where I could make them online. The site showed no tables available between 5:30-8:30. We arrived early and put our name on a list, but they wouldn't seat us until we had at least 3 people there. When our party finally arrived we were immediately led to our table. Seemed like a lot of unnecessary hassle for customers. We ordered drinks and they came in a timely manner as did the food. Three of us ordered salads, which when they came turned out to be huge--like an entree. My husband had the grilled trout special as did 2 others. Another guest had the ahi-tuna. All pronounced their selections delicious and plentiful. Another lady and I had the Steak Brazzos--filet chunks marinated in Madeira sauce with mushrooms. I found mine to be overcooked, on the dry side, and a few pieces had a sinewy thread that made it hard to chew. The other lady also said the same. Our server was excellent and let us enjoy our meal and conversation beforehand without hovering. The atmosphere was top-notch, although a bit noisy. We'll go back again, but to try other items not as expensive as what I had.
