Diner Reviews
  • "My husband wanted the delicious roasted chicken but we were informed the chicken was currently being roasted and would be another 30 minutes before it would be ready. We gladly waited since we had ordered the onion rings as an appetizer. Our waitress kept us informed on the progress of the chicken to make sure we still wanted to wait which we appreciated. The only issue I have whenever I go there is that it is always chilling and the bathrooms are dark. If you wanted to reapply or check your make-up, it is too dark to do so in the bathroom."

  • "Best baked potato in town, best onion rings in the world. Always good food. one disappointment is J's new policy to no longer offer comp valet parking- capital grill does. scraping for the $6 plus tip about $10 can be an obstacle leading me to capital grill."

  • "I love the Customer service , you can't beat it at any other restaurant. Our waitress anticpated all of our needs. we were celebrating our recent marriage, and the complimentary champagne was a nice surprise and a touch of class. We were also surprised with a complimentary dessert to share which again surpurb. Our waitress wa absolutely great. The food portions are out of this world and cooked to perfection. We will be back soon, We will recommend this Restaurant to everyone."

  • "We had a great date there, but it was a first date & they kept trying to rush us out. It was kind of annoying. We finally left b/c they kept taking cups & plates while we were talking & still eating a little. They weren't backed up or busy, so it seemed un-necessary, but the food was good. Only food complaint was the Broccoli was awful…not sure how you mess that up, but they did. Onion Rings were Amazing. Pork Loin was fantastic with the Bang Bang Sauce. & her Salad was very good. The host staff was very cordial & friendly. I made a reservation for the far wall in a quiet corner & they met that request."

  • "We are 3 co-workers whose job has ended. We will be going off in seperate ways so we decided to go out for one last dinner together. We picked J Alexander's since two have us had previously eaten in other locations (Overland Patrk, KS and Palm Beach, FL). We were seated immediately and our server was cheerful and attentive. Two os us had steak (Filet Mignon and Sirlion), 'smashed potatoes', and broccoli, and our friend had the tuna. We also 'shared' a Caesar salad. The meal was fantastic, everything cooked to order. We had an enjoyable evening, good conversation, and great food! If you're looking for a good place to eat, where the food is fresh, and cooked the way you like it, go to J. Alexander's. You won't be disappointed."

  • "The food was amazing! We got the ahi tuna salad for start and it was delicious!!!! I got the crab cakes with mac n cheese and my husband got the cajun steak. Our only complaint, was that his mashed potatoes didn't burn his mouth :) He likes things very hot! Other than that, it was almost the best food we have ever had! We brought our own bottle of wine and they didn't charge for a corking fee. The staff was very knowledgable and friendly. We will definetly be going back again!"

This place provides consistantly great food at reasonable prices with very attentive service. The atmosphere is classy and sophsiticated but is not over the top.
