Diner Reviews
  • "Fish (Cajun trout ) and Grouper was dry. Steak and chicken ok. Trainee needed more supervision. Birthday but they do nothing! Took out of town guests and was sorry I didn't go elsewhere."

  • "Cody and Natalie took great care of us as always. It was just a quick dinner with a couple glasses of wine. Very good"

  • "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."

  • "Food was ok. Rib eye was tough and on flavorable. The manager came by and pointed at it and said that is how it's supposed to be. We asked, tough and no flavor? I He said its correct."

  • "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. :)"

  • "Our party sat at the bar on a weekday and had lunch with a beer. Haley was our bartender and she provided us with superior service. Haley is friendly and an all out professional. 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!"

  • "The food is consistently good and the servers are friendly and efficient. The grilled articokes are outstanding, the ribs are tangy and the burgers are cooked as ordered. The carrot cake is to die for. Just a fun place to go for a good meal any night of the week."

  • "It's my new favorite spot to eat. I always sit at the bar and it is consistently spot on. I want to specifically mention Haley, Natalie, & Gabriella. They ALWAYS greet with a smile! Love the Steak & Frites( even though I sub the fries for the best Mac and Cheese in the world) Keep up the good work..."

  • "It is nice to know that there is still a restaurant that cares about its guests. The food is American without the fussiness and pretensions of other restaurants in this category. Good standard American selections are prepared to perfection. The portions are generous. The service is very attentive and friendly. J. Alexander's is a must go to for anyone looking for great food and service. You will not be disappointed."

  • "We were very pleased with our experience at J. Alexander's. I wanted to take my wife somewhere different for her birthday and I must say that the restaurant met all of our expectations. Most of all, the wait staff was extremely curtious and attentive to our needs. I wish that I could remember my waitresses name, it was very unique, but she was phenomenal. We will definitely tell our friends about our experience."

  • "Just a foot note, this experience was on Mothers day, and being new to the city, i took this reservation on a reccomendation from a co worker that it had a broad selection to please just about everyone. Knowing it was mothers day, i had zero expectations for good service being one of the busiest dining days of the year. Yet there we were, greeted, drinks and food with perfect timing. I was impressed, we had a hand off with a server (shift change?) and it went without a hiccup. The first server had our drinks and first course put in, and the next one took the dinner and dessert order. I even received the french press coffee in time to enjoy with dessert. Friendly wait staff and great experience all around. "

  • "Made a reservation for Mother's Day. All around outstanding experience. We live near by and have eaten here often, and I really want this restaurant to do well here. Seated immediately. Greeted succinctly by Abigail, our server. The food was great. The service excellent. Had not had the crab cakes in some time and they were wonderful. My son had prime rib, and it was cooked to perfection. My wife enjoyed one of the Brunch dishes, the quiche, and it too was excellent. My daughter? Mac and cheese of course! It appears that the staff is stabilizing and the service has been really, really good the last few times we have dined here. "
