  • "Outstanding service from Alex made the evening this trip. He was so welcoming and genuinely glad we chose J. Alexander's. Our party of four all had a great dinner and good time. We'll be back as always."

  • "Always been one of our favorites with top notch evaluation. This time - Kids noises, roast beef pre cooked and warmed up, entire bar set up for dinners, service only just satisfactory and best macicheese prepared probably for lunch crowd and saved. High point was wife's fish - excellent. I still have two prepaid cards for $175 but if dinner is going to be like this one I will use for lunch only! We were truly disappointed although we had been looking forward to going."

  • "We try to eat at J Alexander's once a month when in Ft Lauderdale or Jacksonville. Food is always great and service is top notch. Wait staff is always well versed, makes recommendations and are generally quite pleasant. The menu has something for everyone including great steaks, seafood, ribs and salads. Cocktails are always poured to perfection. Great for people watching but the ambiance and lighting are also perfect for a quiet dinner for two."

  • "Once again, J. Alexanders delivers! For a casual dinner out with my wife we thoroughly enjoyed the petit sirloin (wife), perfectly cooked, very tender with the awesome chef's butter on top. I had the ribs and, as usual, they are fall off the bone tender. The loaded baked potato and cole slaw are excellent. We always end our dinner there sharing a slice of their amazing warm carrot cake, served with coffee. When we consider where to eat out (which we do a lot), almost every time we come back to J. Alexanders. Can't go wrong at all."

  • "Great place for having a casual business dinner for groups of people. Food is excellent, fast service, friendly staff. While overall we were happy with our experience and service, I wanted to point out that the waitress was a little too fast. We were served our salads and before we could finish them, she was bringing out our entres. The table was too small to hold all the dishes, so we had to hold our salads in our laps to allow her to put the entres on the table. It would have been much better for her to have offered to put them in a warmer until we finished our salad. Overall a good experience, would recommend to others."

  • "My husband ans i were Very disappointed in my entrée and side dish choices. We tried j. Alexander's as something special and different from our usual restaraunt choices. We've decided to stick with our usual places."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "I ordered Filet mignon cooked medium and it was prepared mostly well done, part of it medium well. The next steak prepared came out mostly rare to medium rare. The second steak which I cut in half was cooked on the third side, which caused that side to be overcooked. I never cooked a steak on three sides, only the top and bottom; cook could use a lesson. Everything else, salad, dessert, side dishes, was wonderful. The manager took the charge off the bill, but the experience ruined the evening. I will never order the steak again from there, the Ahi Tuna was great and prepared right a previous experience."

  • "Food was excellent, as always. And you can't get better service."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "We were fortunate. Ours was professional, charming and took action when the opportunity arose. The broccoli wasn't very good, we didn't make a big thing out of it - partly because the remaining meal was very good, but "M" fixed it without prompting. Quick response by management. You could see they were also paying attention to guests. You don't walk away hungry from this place."

  • "The experience was excellent. The service sets this place apart."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "J. Alexander's can always be counted on for consistent good food, service and attractive surroundings. I will continue to be disappointed in the lack of availability of wines by the glass with the volume of good wines available by the bottle."

  • "Enjoyed my time there great food but expensive for lunch."

  • "The food and service are always fabulous here! :) I have my favorite dish almost every time. I have always been deliciously satisfied with it! Occasionally, I may try something else. I have always had positive experiences with the food and service."

  • "This visit was a business lunch with a medium sized group. The food was good plus and the service was excellent. I found that a group larger than 4 might be tight on space even with a reservation; so, I might think twice about bringing a larger group in the future. The atmosphere is sophisticated but not stuffy- and the location is great too. For a family, you can get away with one or two children. Enjoyable place."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "We are regulars of J Alexander's, usually dining there two times per month. The bartenders are the best in town and the drinks spectacular for the price. Food is always consistent and service is very good; last Saturday night was no exception. It continues to be one of our favorite places to dine considering what you get for the price."

  • "The food was good, but not superb. Over priced for what you get. Service was very good. Mac and cheese was very yummy, kind of sweet."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Their prime rib remains, hands down, one of the best in the area. I would love to see a gluten free or even friendly menu and to ring back the amazing service....it's gone downhill a lot these past few years."

  • "We were unable to go to J. Alexander due to a power outage at the towncenter."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "UNFORTUNATELY, 359 businesses lost power at 7:15. Our food had been delivered, it was great. Server perfect, attentive. But when the restaurant lost power the grill fans also went down, it became seriously smoky. A snake had invaded the pipes in a huge JEA transformer. This was NOT JAlexander's fault. We will definitely be returning!"

  • "Great food and service. They always double check on you. Also your drink never goes less than half full and always happy to recommend extras. Great place for lunch or dinner"

  • "Nice for Casual Dinner, but getting expensive. price point is between casual and higher end dining, but food is definitely not higher end...don't sit outside at the Jacksonville Town Center location unless you like the smell of smoke, all the smokers stand right next to the outdoor dining area, restaurant management wouldn't do anything about it...really disappoint us and ruined our evening.. if you get cold, take a sweater or sweat shirt...the inside dining is kept somewhere between freezer and refrigerator temperature..."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "I like the fact that I can call and make a reservation, so I know when I get there I don't have to wait. A table is ready and waiting for me and that really means a lot. In addition to the fact that they have a plethora of items on their menu from which to choose and the food is delicious."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "J. Alexander's can be counted on for good food and service. As a part of the finest shopping complex in the city, reservations are recommended for weekend dinners. The menu has something for everyone. The warm carrot cake is is a must have for dessert lovers!"

  • "Another awesome dining experience. Excellent food and service. Looking forward to another visit."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "The pre-course choice of dining partners: one ordered soup, the other ordered a salad. Soup was delivered hot a full five minutes sans the other diner's salad. Upon the salad's arrival, a heated soup was requested. Once both were served, each were much enjoyed. The main entrée was timely served to both partners. The one diner's side dish of garlic mashed potatoes was nearer room temp than hot while the prime rib was superbly prepared. The other diner was too provoked at an empty restaurant with a four star rating and poor kitchen judgment to comment. Perhaps another time..."

  • "We look forward to the artichokes. Went 2 nights and go whenever in Jacksonville. The food is consistent. I had the same thing both nights and so did my fiend. The prime rib is excellent. We are foodies and think it is great for a chain."

Me and and my husbNd just adore her. Her kindness made my birthday dinner very special. We really appreciate you Andrea."

  • "I've been dining here off and on since J Alexanders opened, and while the food hasn't always been four star, the service was always good. My out of town guest and I decided to have lunch there this past week. We were pleased to find everything delicious. Our salads and drinks were artfully presented and just perfect. I am glad to know it's a place to dine again."

  • "I previously sent a review complaining that I went to J Alexander's on 2 separate occasions and they were out of my favorite Baby Back Ribs. The General Manager, Shane graciously invited me to come back and assured me the problem was solved and would not happen again. This time everything was perfect. The food was just how I like it and the service could not be beat"
