Went here late on a Saturday night. Very nice atmosphere, wonderful food (try the carrot cake), nice music and waitstaff is impeccable. A little on the pricey side but worth it.

We had a special 90th Birthday celebration dinner here, and the J Alexander's team took great care of us. The food here is a step above. The signature salad with the Cilantro Dressing was perfect. I loved the Ahi Tuna entree, with the Capri Tomatoes. I substituted the Israeli couscous for the potatoes! The wine list is outstanding, featuring one... More

We ate here on a Friday night. Thankfully we had a reservation, and they did a good job of seating us within 15 min. of our stated time. It was busy. My husband had the ahi tuna blackened. He said it was delicious and perfectly cooked. I had the trout with Israeli couscous and green beans. Mine was delicious as... More

This is one of my top restaurants in the area. From a quick lunch, an after work cocktail or a gourmet meal you are never disappointed. A Sunday brunch of Prime Rib is my favorite. Cut it with a fork. REALLY! Any special event or out to impress a guest this is the place. The staff is friendly and are... More

Popped in here from the Courtyard on 75 as in walking distance . Had a great meal and staff all very jolly. And I loved the fries. After a 20 hour trip from the Uk it was a great 1st meal for my trip to the area. Also visited again later in the week for my last meal before heading... More

We chose J Alexander for our Anniversary dinner the food was out of this world. I had the prime rib and my husband and the tuna..We both had salads. We started out with a young lady as our server. But somewhere we lost her..and ended up with Charles. Charles was totally professional. Not stiff But could laugh at a joke.... More

Ordered prime rib at suggestion of server. Said best you can find. Ordered med rare. The meat showed up rare and tough with no marbling and with no moisture on the plate (I had asked the aus jus be side-plated). Knew something was wrong when there was no blood and it was rare. Meat must have been left out for... More

Six of us were there for Sunday Brunch/Lunch and enjoyed the food and the service. The menu was adequate, though not huge, and everyone enjoyed themselves.

Ate at the back bar, which I still prefer. My wife and I were here on Friday night, crowded but found a space. Sat beside a waitress who had moved away and back in town to vote . She was charming and everyone came up to hug her. The people there really care for the patrons and the food is... More

The food is consistently good. Great flavors, nice portions, and a varied menu. The staff is well-trained, friendly and attentive. Their salads are large and satisfying, the burgers are tasty, and their steaks are nicely prepared. This place seems to be able to remain fresh and relevant in its approach over time. When looking for a consistently good meal, but... More
