    Marie was an AMAZING server! We had to wait past our reservation time because of a table that wouldn’t get up, however, they were extremely kind and apologetic that we had to wait and offered us an appetizer on the house. We had an amazing meal and will definitely return.

    J. Alexander's has always been a "go to" for our family for years when celebrating family events. This week, we were celebrating my middle daughter's birthday. As always, the food was excellent.

    It was everything I’ve come to expect from J Alexander’s. I had frequented the Franklin TN restaurant and this was every bit as good. CHARLES was attentive and courteous.

    Sunday lunch- My husband and I like to go here after church. It is usually very busy so I love using Open Table to get a reservation. The wait staff is really well-trained, positive and professional. The fish tacos are a personal favorite. My hubby got the brunch burger which he likes a lot and unfortunately this time, he had to send it back as medium rare came out well-done. The Second time was perfect and yummy but that's such a hassle. My fish sandwich was good, but I think the breading was too heavy. Really like the southern coleslaw which they were willing to substitute since I don't eat fries!

    The air conditioning above was dripping water on us. It was not like an open fountain, but definitely dripping. Our server did not offer for us to move, which I feel would have been appropriate. It also took a long time for our steak to arrive. I think the server was more concerned with his larger parties as he seemed distracted.

    Our server was beyond rude and inattentive. Both of our prime ribs were medium well and we had ordered medium rare. We had to flag down down a server passing because he never came by. Other servers also were utilized for drink refills. His name was Charles. Several incidents occurred but the last one was the straw. The last incident he seriously ignored us. He said “yes?” and kept walking past us to another table. I have never even heard of someone doing that. We then asked for a manager and he replaced Charles with Amber. She was fabulous and we tipped her very well for that service. I eat at J’s sometimes 2 or 3 times a week. This isn’t the level of service that I’ve grown to enjoy there. We finally got our food and Amber did great once she was assigned our table. It was still overall a very bad experience.

    Overall good meal. The salmon dip was a heart starter. Our food came out quickly before we even finished our appetizer. The MR Jacks chicken was okay for the price paid. Although my husband really enjoyed his prime rib.

    Our time at J Alexander's was fantastic! The service was great, reservations were easy, and the food was delicious. Went to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and they gave us a free piece of carrot cake which is the most delicious dessert I've ever had at a restaurant! Definitely go, and definitely get the carrot cake.

    My wife and I rarely get a date night and this was the perfect setting. Awesome food and excellent value. The fried shrimp was amazing and I could eat all of my food. We got carrot cake to go and had it later that night. It was the best carrot cake around.

    Food is well made and tasty. The portions are too big. I find the noise level in most restaurants too loud to hear the person next to you! Love the decor afs service is always stellar. Front desk people could improve.
