“Absolutely the best”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

While visiting Town Center wanted to share a meal as we'd had a late lunch and ventured in to J Alexanders for dinner. We shared Alex's salad and the most perfect French dip on a bagette with horseradish sauce. This was worthy of five stars. Great atmosphere and servers. This is a must go place.

“Fast, fast, fast!”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Fastest service in Town Center. If you're in a rush, this is the place to go. Food is very good (not great). Ambiance wonderful: rich appointments, mesquite aroma from wood grill permeates, soft jazz. Roasted artichoke appetizer A+. They know what "rare" beef means. Wine-by-the-glass list poor. However, if you want a leisurely dinner and time to savor a good bottle of wine, you'll be rushed.

“Chocolate cake lives up to it's name!”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

Had the salmon for dinner. It was cedar plank grilled and was excellent. Garlic mashed potatoes were very good. Service was very good as well. One of the best chocolate cakes I have ever had. Will definitely go again.

“Definitely worth the visit”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

As a couple we've been there, as well as with friends, for business, and even as singles during the day. This place will go above and beyond. The Onion Ring tower is a fantastic treat, but huge. The menu has something for everyone! Each of the meals we've ordered were enough for two.
The best of the menu in our opinion: "not your ordinary' mac and cheese - done with multiple cheeses; the carrot cake that is served heated or taken home cold; Key Lime pie that will melt in your mouth. The steaks and salmon have always been done to perfection. It's turned into our favorite spot to go.
