  • "meet friends here regularly for lunch. prime rib sandwiches are outstanding - substitute mac n cheese for french fries. be sure to try the warmed carrot cake with glaze - generous portion - enough to share. staff is outstanding - knowledgeable, helpful, bright. centrally located - easy access from I75. make a reservation."

  • "I had a $100 gift card from work. It was only my husband, 13 year old son and myself. We all ordered the $31 filet with béarnaise sauce. The waiter asked what we wanted on our baked potato. I asked if it came with a salad. He said it was only $1 more. I said "So that means each meal is $32 correct?" He said yes. When we got the bill for $124 we were more than a little surprised. We only had a soda, iced tea and a water. It was a wonderful meal but I was very clear about what I was expecting when the bill came. After feeling taken, it ruined what was to be a nice evening. My husband did not want me to say anything at the time to avoid the evening becoming more unpleasant."

  • "The kids planned a weekend at a cabin for the end of the month so my wife and I were soloing. Can two solo? Oh well? She surprised me with a trip to J. Alexanders for an early lunch after church. Easy parking, beautiful day. Had pre-determend to get the Prime Rib but the Sunday Brunch offerings superceded my plans. Eggs Benedict with a filet filled my plate and she had the Belgium Waffle with a Champaine Cream and Strawberries. There should be SIX stars on the review. We split each others and had a ball. Our waitress was super, good service, great attitude. Arnold said it best "I'll be back" Dean"

  • "Nice place, great staff and possibly the BEST SALAD I'VE EVER HAD. But then our steaks came and they were near flavorless, not to mention undercooked to our specifications. The Steak N Fries is similar to O'Charley's Louisiana Sirloin, but not nearly as good and close to twice the price. We kind of soured on the place after that and skipped dessert. But who knows, maybe if you go for something other than steak, it's amazing. Maybe just apps and a big salad? Ambience-wise, it was pretty standard family-chain-restaurant, with a few screaming kids."

  • "I can't help but feeling that I spent a lot of money for "okay." I think my main issue is that it took my asking the waiter at least 20 minutes after ordering if our salads were coming out soon to actually get them. Maybe he forgot to turn the order in or another server was to bring them but it did not set a good tone. This was Saturday night but the restaurant was definitely not at capacity. The food was good but really, if it weren't for my husband liking their prime rib, we probably wouldn't come back. "

  • "I'm a fan and a regular here now! Food is always great, very accommodating and consistent. I always know what to expect. Stage is friendly and courteous. Favorites are the crab cakes, steak&fries or this time I had the ahi tuna steak. I'm told the burgers are amazing and try the fleur de lis is you want a different martini. Why is 50 characters required here? It kinda makes me crazy. "

  • "Fabulous Sunday Brunch. Wonderful atmosphere and great service. Loved the brunch menu. I had the lemon risotto pancakes which were delicious. Very reasonable prices and fabulous $5 Bloody Marys!"

  • "Not bad, for the prices, I could have found a better meal. The service was very good, and the setting was nice. I would recommend it, but you should lower your prices to cognize with the quality of the food. I don't mine paying for what I get...the food was good, but not worth the prices. "

  • "Reservation at 7, seated at 7:50. This does not work when a 3 yr old is in the group. Brought family for graduation celebration and was very disappointed. Fan blowing right on table. Forgot my 3 yr olds meal, not good. Food was high quality but the rest of the night was a mess. Staff was friendly but couldn't clear tables for our reservation. "

  • "The prime rib sandwich seems smaller than it once was, and it did not have any fat, which is where the best flavor is. Perhaps when I order that again I'll request a slice that has fat. Their horseradish sauce is delicious and perfect with the rib. Love their french fries too! Service always excellent. "

  • "I made reservations, and the hostess was prompt in seating my family members upon their arrival. Our waiter was very attentive, and eager to serve our group of six. The food was served within a timely manner, and was fresh. The ambience was cozy, and relaxing. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves."

  • "Mother's Day was our second trip to J. Alexander's. Our first visit was a little disappointing, since both our cuts of meat were a little tough - tasty and cooked perfectly, but tough. After my initial feedback, J. Alexander's asked us to give them another try, and I am so glad we did. All the things I had heard about the quality of the prime rib and steaks was true - we had a wonderful meal. Very busy, being Mother's Day, but everything came to our table quickly, and once again, the steaks were cooked perfectly. This was a memorable experience. Thanks for inviting us to take a second chance, J. Alexander's."

  • "The food was not acceptable for the price. The meat on my filet kabob was very tough. I don't even think it was actually filet. They also don't serve water until you ask for it. The waiter could barely hear to take our orders over the noise of other diners. "

  • "J. Alexander's never disappoints when it comes to experiencing excellent service and a diverse menu priced reasonably. I choose this place each year for my birthday because of their amazing carrot cake. This time I got carb cakes that were beyond delishious paired with mashed potatoes. The appetizer our server suggested, the smoked salmon, was tasy as well. I was so happy we tried it and will order it again. The group I dined with had diverse appetites: the beef lover enjoyed ribs that just fell off of the bones, the gormet foodie enjoyed the inhouse made vegie burger, and I enjoyed the crab cakes. I am very excited to go back this summer. I would recommend this place to any one looking to dine casually in Cincinnati."

  • "This was the first time for Brunch for all 4 of us. Everything was Absolutely Delicious as we had the Filet Eggs Benedict and the Quiche, both were Great. Brianna was our Server and she seriously is Top Notch in the Hospitality service industry. She took care of our every request, and our glasses never went empty. Great Bruch menu with Great Selections. Oh yes, we all shared the Lemon Ricotta Pancakes for Dessert and they were incredible, (a Must try).."

Our waiter was prompt with refills and she made sure that everything was going the way we wanted it to. The food was cook correctly and it tasted wonderful. Our last dinner experience we had here, appeared to be a disappointing one time fluke. But today's service was exactly how it always is...great food and great service. "

The menu has something for everyone. The food was tasty. I ordered the tuna steak and it came rare as ordered but the had a sauce with it that was overly salty. Everyone had a nice evening overall."

  • "We went to Easter Brunch to enjoy the Eggs Benedict. The meal was served with French Fries rather than the breakfast potatoes that were on the menu which I found very peculiar and the Benedict was poorly presented. The Mimosa was bitter. We have dined here many times and it is one of our favorites but this experience fell well short of expectations. "

  • "The service was fine. However, towards the ends I felt as though the waiter was anxious for us to leave despite the fact that no one was there. I would understand if there was a line of people waiting for a table but it was pretty empty. I was annoyed with that because I was enjoying to talking to my friend and our bill had already been paid. "

  • "The atmosphere was great, service very nicely done, artichoke appetizer was unusual and very tasty. However, we came for the prime rib, which had been highly recommended. Unfortunately, while it was cooked perfectly, the meat was not tender - actually kind of tough. The same for the Maui ribeye - I was expecting fork tender, especially with a marinated cut, but it was also quite tough. Flavorful, and cooked to order, but tough. Sort of disappointing --"
