I have been eating at J Alexander's Restaurant for many years. I have never been disappointed in the food, service or atmosphere. I can always count on generous servings, attentive service, cold drinks and hot food. The salads are some of the best in the city. The bar has a nice, quiet, conversational vibe.

Went for dinner with my wife. We enjoyed the very friendly and calm atmosphere. Excellent service and the food was perfect. One of the best places to have a romantic dinner in the Hoover/Birmingham area.

I was very pleased from start to finish. The service was very good and the food was very good as well. I had the Maui Steak and it was very good. The deviled eggs appetizer was very good as well.

Parking lot full on a Tuesday night but we were seated in a requested booth immediately and enjoyed martinis with delicious cold sidebars. Bar service: excellent. Not starving, we ordered a flat bread appetizer and a Faucon salad, a favorite. They now make their own flatbread dough: thin and crispy and a HUGE portion. The salad is a mix of... More

Warm, cozy restaurant. Lots of menu choices for main course. The salmon was perfectly cooked and delicious. The mashed potatoes looked like a mountain! Beautiful presentation. The broccoli was cooked perfectly,too. Little crunchy but soft and seasoned. A very buyer friendly wine list. We shared a bottle of Belle Gloss. For dessert, I chose an eggnog martini. Delicious!

Sat in a back booth and was apparently invisible. Had to call the hostess from my cell phone to get a server who took my order then disappeared. Food was delivered by an expeditor who vanished before I could ask for the real horseradish they failed to bring as requested. Finally, flagged down a server from another section (I literally...

J. Alexander's is always a reliable restaurant to have a good meal. I like to go there for their grilled salmon, prime rib, BBQ ribs, mac and cheese, and their Ceasars salad. Their martinis are good as well. I am always pleased with this restaurant.
