This is our favorite restaurant particularly for a special occasion. However for the first time we were disappointed with our service. After waiting 45 minutes for an entree and two bowls of soup, a manager stopped by and said our order had been “lost.” We received our salads promptly so not sure how the order was lost.

We had to ask for tea refills when our glasses were empty.

This was my husband’s birthday which I noted in the reservation. No mention was ever made of this.

After finally receiving our food we ate. We ordered dessert to celebrate. Again nothing. It would have been nice to have the dessert comped.

Having been a customer many times at this restaurant I can only assume this was a bad night.

It was very good. Only problem was a leak in the ceiling that got my fiancé wet while we were eating. The manager offered to move us but she just came over to my side of the booth because we were almost done.

I chose J Alexander’s to celebrate my 35th birthday with my friends. I specifically wanted the rotisserie chicken as my friends and I love that dish. However, the rotisserie machine was broken. After the initial disappointment I went with my next favorite which was the steak, cooked medium well. Unfortunately the steak was over cooked...nearly burnt. The charcoal taste was more prevalent than anything. Needless to say, I didn’t get the awesome birthday meal that I was really wanting or hoped for.

This is a regular place on our "special dinners" list. We have eaten here many times, both for lunch and dinner. Sunday was our first attempt on Easter. The filet mignon here is consistently above average to spectacular. Our server was like most all the ones we have had here before...friendly, attentive, great with kids, wheel chairs, and the many curveballs our out of town guest threw her way. We will return again and again.

We made a reservation for Easter lunch. Our reservation was secured; once we walked in we were directed to our table immediately. We all had filets for lunch, and they were cooked to order. The food arrived hot, and the sides were just right. Our server, Christine, provided an excellent level of service. She was very attentive but didn't overdo it. Great experience!

We requested a table but when I arrived for the reservation (5 minutes early) they had no table ready. The hostess said she hadn’t seen our special request so we had to wait 20 minutes for a table.

Everything was delicious. We have never had a bad meal at j Alexander’s. We threw them a curveball and asked to sit outside so it wouldn’t be loud. They arranged us outdoor tables, and our server managed her inside tables and us effortlessly.

We have high expectations for this restaurant, and in this case we were not disappointed. The food was fabulous. We started with the deviled eggs appetizer, which is a favorite of mine. When it was delivered missing a major component, the waiter did not even pause, but immediately resolved the problem. We had come with desert in mind, and we ordered sandwiches and light fare to enable that goal. I enjoyed the fish sandwich which I often try when I have a chance. My wife enjoyed the shrimp tacos. Both were prepared well and served in an attractive way for what they are. I enjoyed the flavor of the fish and the light breading. It could have used a touch more salt and the dressing that was on the sandwich was too light, but that did not take away from the meal. My wife enjoyed the bang-bang sauce on the taco.

As always, the carrot cake which brought us to this restaurant was amazing. It is served warm and gooey with a melting icing that brings the whole desert together. We always order it with coffee and, so far, are never disappointed.

We are new to Knoxville TN and J. Alexander’s came highly recommended if we were to visit Chattanooga and was not disappointed. The atmosphere was classy but yet still cozy enough to dress casually. Our appetizers were amazing and the main dish was delicious. The price point for the portions was just right. We cannot wait to eat there again.

First time to j alexanders. Made a reservation for 3 at 7 and got there around 630. We were sat immediately which was great. The service was good and not overbearing. The prime rib some of the best I've ever had and the blue cheese encrusted strip was cooked perfect MR. I'll Definitely keep this place in mind
