J alex is one of those places that you can always count on being good. The sunday brunch menu has a quiche that is absolutely delicious.

Server was somewhat inattentive. My steak was overcooked and somewhat flavorless. Love the atmosphere but it is always extremely noisy. I was with friends and didn't want to complain so I let it slide.

Wonderful choice for celebrating our anniversary! The staff is wonderful and very attentive. The food was great! We've been eating at this establishment for more than 10 years for both casual meals and special occasions and they don't disappoint. Highly recommend!

J Alexander’s never fails. The food is always great! Service is top notch. This trip I had a Cesar Salad, the Filet and the carrot cake. All were amazing!!! The sauce on the side of the steak was so good.

The atmosphere, service, and company was fantastic. The food was delicious, too, however I ordered the fish special which happened to be grouper. It was served with couscous, and was delicious, but the portion was so small for a $27 lunch special! I had the most expensive meal of the three of us, and received the least amount of food, ended up leaving still hungry. Definitely NOT a good value.

We made a reservation and there was a bit of a delay checking in as the restaurant's system was down. In spite of a number of people waiting, we were seated with little delay. Our food and service was excellent, we will be back.

This was for a group of 10 (my daughter's 25th birthday). We brought a cake (which they did not have a problem with) and they supplied plates and ice cream. The food was very good. The service was outstanding.

One of our personnel best places to go to eat. Everything is always great. The only reason I put just "good" for value is that most people cannot drop 150.00 a night for four people. It is the best place to eat in Chattanooga but just a little expensive for a family. That is why we only come out a couple times a year. .............Mike

The ambience is not really my style- very dark and incredibly loud. But the food was very good, even though I had a little problem with mine. The manager fixed it, which took the kitchen about 20 minutes. The waiter was excellent.

The meals were very good and our server, Chelsea, was outstanding with her knowledge of the menu and attentiveness. Reservations through Open Table were smooth. J. A's. host was accommodating, by seating us right away, when my party arrived earlier than scheduled. Overall good experience for business dinner and will repeat in the future.

Our first visit will probably be our last. We went for Sunday lunch. Arrived at 1:15 with a reservation, seated 10 minutes later, took over 30 minutes to get food, and then it was mediocre quality and warm / not fresh and hot. Disappointed.
