I tend to go to restaurants that have a particular cuisine, you know, Mediterranean, Chinese, Thai, and tend to not want to go to american restaurants but J Alexanders is a fabulous surprise. The food is very good, it comes hot and right off the grill. The Ahi Tuna, and the Trout dish was on point. Even the calamari was... More

Went there on "the-spur-of-the moment" wine & dine idea (like 4:30-ish) in the afternoon and was amazed at their lack of staff & their total disregard for seating us quickly as they were just really focused-in on "prepping-for their Dinner-Crowd" .. Hey: My $$$ (and expectations) are just the same as their Dinner-Crowd & I fully expected to have that... More

Went for dinner last night on a whim. I wasn 't very hungry, so I went for the fish sandwich. I'd never hear of Red Fish, but it sounded good. My wife had the fish tacos which I had the leftovers for lunch today. They were a little spicy if you like that sort of thing. For an appetizer we... More

You may as well eat off the chair when the same unwashed cloth used to clean the chairs and booths is then smeared across the table. Buon appetite!

The slow roasted prime rib was wonderful. Went to dinner with family and friends on New Year Day. The server was very attentive. The food was superb. I recommend if you are looking for a nice dining experience. Please note vegetables or salad do not come with dinner.

From the perfect martinis to the Smoked Salmon appetizer to the marvelous steaks, best sides anywhere (specifically the Mac & Cheese and the shoestring fries) and to top it off, the Carrot Cake, we had an extraordinary dinner. Trisha was our server last night. Her level of service was perfect: attentive yet not intruding. Never had to ask for anything;... More

We typically do not pick many chain restaurants, however our flight was delayed and we had yet to eat breakfast (it was noon). We went across the street from the Hyatt (where we had just checked out). The ambiance is quite dark, however I would imagine on a cold and blustery evening it would be lovely. We walked in at...

Without reservation we got very good seats after only 15min wait. Very kind staff served food and drinks in due time. We had two different kinds of chicken very pleasant tasting. Superb the very thin cut fries and fresh coleslaw. We will come again with other guests. The room interior design is also very nice.

Thank GeorgSa
