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.

The staff was amazing I felt like I was at a small 5 star restaurant in NYC. The water glasses were always kept full, food was brought out all at once with great presentation. Food tasted great and atmosphere was enjoyable.

I have said since our first visit that this is one of the best mid-range chains in America. Well, nothing has changed. When we travel back to this side of the state, this is one of our must stop places. The French Dip sandwich is the best, period. The fries are better than anywhere. And, the carrot cake is to...

I have eaten at this restaurant several times over the years, and have always come away feeling great about my dining experience. Located on Haggerty Road near 8 Mile & the I-275 freeway, it is near many other restaurants, big box stores, and a large movie theater. I've had their chicken, steak, burgers, and salads, and they're all delicious! If... More

Went to dinner with my co-workers during our training, great atmosphere, loved the 1/2 chairs/ 1/2 booths. Great food & an even better atmosphere to get to know new co-workers.

Though a little pricey the food here is good. The staff was proactive, attentive, and friendly. The food was hot and tasted good. I would eat here again.

We enjoyed our dinner at J Alexander's, but thought it was pricey for our meals. The restaurant has been at this location for a lot of years, so people keep going back -- it must just be us! The steaks were tender and delicious, reminiscent of those at LaBistecca in Plymouth, MI and equally as costly.

Amazing! Great food, great service and great atmosphere! It gets a little crowded at times but understandably so. They seem to handle it all with teamwork. I recently ran into a server there that I haven't seen in a while.She reminded me that she has been working there for 15 years. Management apparently treats them very well and it shows.

Thank Susan M
