  • "When I go here and look at the menu I see lots of things that look good but can't get past ordering filet. It is delicious and prepared just the way I like it. Love the salad too."

  • "Phenomenal experience as always. I had a great time. It was my birthday. On another note. With the amount of my bill and I only had a party of two and it was my birthday I believe a slice of carrot cake and candle should be priority for the birthday guess. Although I ordered it because you don't serve cake per say. Just a thought of the small ways J Alexander could brighten someone's birthday. We all done there have a structured bavkground per say but we all like to roll our sleeves up and take off the tie and have a little fun and laughter so a lil birthday medium volume song from the waitress or waiter would bring a tad bit life to J Alexander.. That's just my perspective. Thanks!"

  • "We've been to the Norcross location a number of times. This was our first trip to Perimeter. The food quality was not up to the level we are accustomed to. I ordered the Prime Rib medium.. they brought out a rare/mid rare piece they soaked in au jus to make it look less rare. I remember this trick from when I worked at Outback many years ago.. pretty disappointing for a restaurant of this caliber. My fiancee got the seabass and shrimp special and it was thoroughly disappointing. We've never been let down by the food at J Alexanders. In the future we will stick to the Norcross location."

  • "One can always be sure that you will have a good meal and good service at J.Alexanders. Only drawback is that they do not have very many actual tables, but allot of booths.Booths are not great for large people."

  • "First server w/ zero personality did not welcome us or introduce herself. Left to get water and thankfully was replaced. He started off shaky by not knowing the specials and had to retrieve that info. Artichoke appetizer was very tasty. Sourough bread very good. Prime rib was flavorful, tender but dry. Ordered med rare but served closer to medium well. Their website slideshow displayed multiple FISH dishes but they don't really carry many fish meals unless you include their tacos. Menu is a hodgepodge of everything including pizza, hamburgers, tacos, steak and salmon. Ambience was coffee shop casual with straight line booths on multiple levels. Short wait at 8pm, half empty by 9:15 on Saturday night. Seemed older (50+) target market."

  • "The kitchen goes overboard to customize our requests to exactly what we wanted! (Adding minced anchovies to my Caesar salad and special requests also for my friend!) The salmon and cole slew were dee-lish!!! The salmon was cooked exactly as each of us requested and we loved it.\!! The service is always above excellent, so you need more, higher level choices to describe the really "excellent" staff. Always good people. We're regulars and always get the very best treatment. A great place for a meal!!"

  • "I was excited to know that now they had reservations. My family went to the Dunwoody, Atlanta location for my birthday. The ambiance was modern and eclectic. The waitress was wonderful and on top of her game. I decided to get my favorite glass of the Lincort Pinot Noir that looks to me J Alexander's is the only place that has this. My hubby ordered their fish tacos which he stated were fresh and tasty. I decided to get the classic steak and fries. My steak was done medium well and it was perfect. They surprised me with a decadent chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream. The whole experience was fantastic and recommend this jewel of a restaurant for any occasion."

  • "They were really nice here our server was great. Food was excellent it is definitely a vibrant atmosphere perfect for families and still pretty/romantic. The only complaint I have was the booth seemed too far from the table so I sat on the edge for the entire stay that could be eliminated by a table/chair seating though I am always a booth sort of gal. My husband didn't like the shoestring type fries I did however. :)"

We had the smoked salmon dip as an appetizer with the ahi tuna salad and club sandwich for lunch. It was all tasty. We will definitely be back, and may even make j.alexander's a regular hangout!"

  • "The NYO Mac n Cheese is one of those dishes that makes you want to smack your momma (only in your mind though). Yum!"

  • "I had been to J. Alexander's for dinner before and was impressed with the food. For Brunch, definitely not impressed. My mother-in-law ordered the poached eggs and the yolk was completely cooked inside, it was more like a boiled egg. Also, my father-in-law asked for a side of eggs with his pancakes and the kitchen said it was a set menu and they could not provide eggs on the side. Really?! It's too much to scramble a couple of eggs. That was a disappointment given the very limited Father's day Brunch menu. Overall was expecting something much nicer on Father's Day and was very disappointed."

  • "I had a late dinner with friends and I'm so glad that I select this restaurant. The food selection was phenomenal. You have to try the Mac & Cheese it was sooo good. The ribs were great and the tenderloins was to die for but my Steak Maui was the topper. Everything was good. The service was really good and the hostess was really nice and made u feel welcome. I would recommend this restaurant for, brunch, lunch, dinner, special occasions, etc. "

  • "My wife and I will go out of our way to eat at any J. Alexander's when traveling. Now since we have moved to Atlanta, this location is within walking distance of our apartment which means we eat here weekly! I have never had a bad meal or experience at J's ( and probably ate at one 50+ times). The service is always good or great and the portion sizes of any selection are substantial. I especially love the chicken tenders (which don't show up on the menu but are always available), and my wife loves the prime rib sandwich. That said, the hamburger, the Hyde sandwich (chicken), and the fish tacos are all equally excellent. We have had several of the salads as well which are all huge and very tasty! Bottom line, great food and service always!"
