We visited a J Alexanders back in the summer right after it changed its name to Redlands Grille. At that time, they had changed the menu and the wonderful Thai Kai Salad was off the menu. I was so disappointed! When we stopped in last week, it was back on the menu! It makes a great entree salad. My husband... More

Great beef, steaks and prime rib. The desserts are very special if you save room for one, we always share. They were recently bought and we were concerned the menu/quality might change. We should not have worried, they are still great!

Fantastic lunch at a reasonable price. A very short distance from I-71 (downtown Cincinnati). They even opened the door for me when I left!

I come here once a week for lunch and maybe once a month for dinner. If we lived closer, we would be here more often for dinner.

This is an excellent restaurant for doing business. The atmosphere is very conducive to that and the food quite wonderful. The salmon and ahi tun are very good. They have a good bar, as well.

Had a holiday lunch here the other day and we were glad we made reservations as it was packed. We were greeted right away and taken to a nice booth by a window. Our drink order was taken (not too difficult; two beers and two glasses of wine). and following that we got a lot of smiles and apologies because... More

We have been here about 10 times within the past two months and it is an excellent experience. Every now and then you get an off server, but for the most part they are friendly, helpful, and I love the team work with them constantly collecting used dishes from your table.

J Alexander's is now Redlands grill except for the big sign outside saying J Alexander.'s They have slipped a good bit We didn't know we were in a "different" place until we were seated and saw the menu. When we asked the server, she said that It is still owned by J Alex corporate, but it was now in effect... More

Great brunch on Sundays and food anytime. Convenient to downtown CInci and big enough for large parties. Food was very good.

Our waiter, Mike F was pretty snippy and insolent. Not very friendly at all. Impatient when we were deciding what to order. Practically threw the check at us, then got attitude when we wanted coffee, after we had paid the bill. Other than his bad attitude, the food is good and the service is ok.
