  • "Making the reservation online was the best thing we ever did. Tried to call ahead and the wait was 45 minutes to an hour. When I reserved online it was 15 minutes."

  • "Both had filet. Perfectly cooked and paired with excellent wine selections. Service attentive but not overbearing. Manager checked in with us. Provided anniversary treats. One of our favorite places"

  • "The food was great but over a hundred dollars for two people and we did not even have drinks I thought it was a little ridiculous. And it was so noisy me and my wife could not even hear each other talk at the table."

  • "J. Alexander's was recommended by a friend. He certainly directed me to a great restaurant. My wife and I had a very nice dining experience. Our first perception was that the restaurant was very loud, however we were seated in a quieter area in the restaurant which was fine. Great food and excellent service will definitely bring us back."

  • "We were greeted with a recognized greeting upon hearing our name, and they privately acknowledged to me (when I discreetly asked) if they had gotten my message on the Open Table reservation (they had and were ready - awesome!). We were seated immediately / no wait, and when we ordered our appetizer, it was on our table so quick. Our waiter MAC was excellent, attentive and explained everything. Our food was excellent. Mac picked up on my boyfriend's favorite dessert and brought it out with a candle to celebrate his birthday (the note on the open table reservation). They handled everything great and made us feel special. We will definitely be back!!"

  • "Long wait past open table reservation time...place was packed ith little room at the front for the dozens waiting for tables. However, once seated, the usual stellar service. Their Caesar salad is second to no ones, and a beef carpaccio was very good with Parmesan crisps a nice twist from the usual Parmesan shavings. However, I ordered a ny strip on recommendation from the server and a friends reco that he liked their steaks better than Ruth Chris. It wasn't even close. Perfect med rare with nice touch of wood smoke, but the cut was tougher than expected and the meat was under seasoned. Carrot cake for dessert was delicious."

  • "J. Alexander's may be a regional chain, but it is a very good one. Even as the prices have crept up, we continue to enjoy coming here. The food is extremely consistent and expertly prepared and the "clubby" atmosphere is not only comfortable, but it makes you forget that you are inside a restaurant in a mall area. The staff is well-trained and very accommodating. Most recently, I enjoyed the pork tenderloin with the Bang Bang sauce. I certainly did not expect to get the entire pork tenderloin sliced up as my entree. With a couple of salads, it easily fed two of us."

  • "Our experience was generally ok but when one of group members received her dish- the crab cakes- they were raw. It took much too long for our server to check in to see how everyone's meals were."

  • "Need to be better organized with seating those with reservations. Waited over 30 minutes to be seated after arriving with a reservation. I believe we were forgotten about or lost in the shuffle. For the money, the restaurant sounds more like a sports bar during the Super Bowl. It's this way during lunch, as well. I won't be back unless this changes. Impossible to have a quiet dinner."

  • "My husband and I dined at J Alexander's near Hamilton Place, in Chattanooga, Tenn., during an overnight stay on our annual trip to Florida. It was our first time there and we both enjoyed the experience in every way. Had no problems getting a dinner reservation and were greeted and shown to our table promptly on arrival; enjoyed sharing a delicious shrimp appetizer that had an amazing amount of shrimp and was extremely good, then I had the artichoke app as my main and my husband had a hamburger selection, also yummy. Would definitely return to this restaurant on another stop in the area!"

  • "J Alexanders offers a consistently good dining experience. The bar is lively with excellent drinks prepared by an experienced team of mixologists. Take advantage of the complimentary pimento cheese spread and chips while you enjoy your drink. The food choices are varied and focus on favorites from steak and prime rib to burgers and shrimp. The appetizers are very good especially the shrimp and the grilled artichokes. You can't go wrong with J Alexanders."

  • "My sister and I have eaten here many times. We used to love Alex's salad. It has changed and the flavor is not as good. We remember the ingredients being smaller, especially the cucumbers; perhaps there was a bit more bacon too. The shrimp tacos were wonderful. There was a problem with our check-- there were wine charges and we didn't have any wine. The waitress apologized profusely; that was fine. It was the waiting for the check after it had been given to pay that took way too long. We realize this was a minor glitch. We will definitely be back."

  • "The OpenTable reservation allowed us to all but totally bypass the "on-standby" group (which was substantial, it being Valentine's day). Service was great, from the front-bar area bartender all the way to the preparation of food (and of course, I would like to thank Kristen (our waitress) for her attentiveness, while at the same time allowing us to enjoy our evening). The food was, as it had been previously, outstanding - by far, the best NY Strip I have had. I am not a big "stuff-on-steak" fan, so the strip was my choice for the evening.... Food was prepared (as far as I am concerned) perfectly, delicious accompaniments to the main dishes, good selection of wine - just simply put, a great evening out."

  • "We had the 1/2 chicken with mashed potatoes and the new york strip with NYO mac n cheese. Both were well prepared and very tasty. We had reservation for 7pm, we had to wait approximately 20 minutes for our table to be ready. They were extremely busy. Overall a good experience with great service."

  • "I am glad a made a reservation because the wait was over 2 hours. We were seated 15 minutes after our reserved time and I did not think that was bad at all. Food was good and so was the service. My only complaint was how noisy it was because of all the people waiting. I am not sure what they could have done. My steak did come out under done and cold but they fixed it right away and all was good."

The manager Scott, called us by name and wished me a happy birthday and gave me a card. Our server Merideth was very friendly and knowledgeable. Overall our we thouroughly enjoyed our visit and would go back again!!!!"

  • "A friend and I came to enjoy their AMAZING, SCRUMPTIOUS, LUCIOUS, DECADENT carrot cake. I felt a little guilty taking a table just for a dessert, but as good as it is, that guilt was quickly overshadowed by our joy. To the server's credit, he didn't blink an eye when he learned it would be such a small check. He gave us the same great service I have come to expect when I have been ordering a full meal. Great job! FYI. We ended up having wine and splitting a salad too, so it wasn't a total loss for him. LOVE J. ALEXANDER's CARROT CAKE."

  • "As usual, the food and service were what I've come to expect from J Alexander's. Everything was great! Food was perfectly executed at each course, and the martinis and manhattans' were prepared perfectly. I've never had an experience here that has been less than perfect. Whenever I have family or friends In town, this is where I take them."

  • "We dine at J's frequently and so were thrilled to find out that they now take reservations; aware that Friday's are busy we made one for 7:30. I have never seen the place as "slammed" as it was when we arrived; the bars were both overflowing and the crowd was so large that they had run out of buzzers. We waited about an hour and just as we were about to give up were led to a table. Once seated all was excellent as usual. By the time we were finished the crowd had thinned out, so we asked the young lady at the hostess stand what had happened and her reply was "we just started the reservation thing and I'm afraid we took too many - this was a rough night but we'll get things smoothed out". I hope so."
