Steak was ordered medium rare and came out well done/burnt for my wife. No real apology. Everyone else was done eating and then another 10 minutes passed before they brought her another one. Didn’t apologize or offer to comp her portion of the meal.

When we arrived for our 7:30 for our reservation we we're seated immediately. Our server was very happy and smiling. I know he had been working very hard because it was Mother's Day and his happy presence was very nice. He was very professional and attentive. Our food was delicious and came out very quick. We finished our evening off with the best carrot cake in town. Thanks to all the staff for making Mother's Day great.

Steak was over cooked and no one came around to check! This is not typical. One of our favorite places to eat! We love their usual reliability. We travel and have had great experiences in many of their locations. This time was very disappointing!
ON THE UPSIDE: The martini was great as usual.

I took my wife here for mother’s day expecting brunch. Only to find out that they decided due to how busy they were going to be, to not offer their brunch menu. Poor mgt decision! No advanced notice. Another poor mgt. decision!

We dine at J Alexander’s at least once every other week it’s always our go to when we want something nice. Unfortunately the past two times we have visited J Alexander’s we always leave asking ourselves why we keep coming back. The service is lacking in a major way. Our waitress never checked on us and I continued to drink the same watered down tea the whole meal. We finally got our food after what seemed like forever and my steak was over cooked and half of it was fat and the fries didn’t have any seasoning at all. I always get the steak and fries and it’s always amazing but it wasn’t good this time so when the waitress asked “was it delicious?” I gave her an honest answer of no it wasn’t. She didn’t like that answer at all. She made a face and rolled her eyes before she asked what the problem could be. I wasn’t trying to complain or be rude and I would have happily paid for the meal whether I liked it or not. I ate it and I picked at it because I was starving!! I was however giving her an honest answer. She was extremely rude you would have thought she cooked it herself. She sent the manager over and she was absolutely lovely and apologetic!! She took the meal off my ticket and I felt that was fair. The only criticism I have is the waitresses just check on your tables and be kinder when people have issues with their meal so it doesn’t escalate out of proportion. I love the atmosphere!

I recommend J. Alexander’s in Chattanooga because the food and service is great. However, if you want to carry on a conversation with the people you are eating with it is horrible. The noise level is too loud.

My husband and I celebrate our anniversary at this restaurant nearly every year (maybe 14 out of the 16). I had hoped that since I mentioned it was our anniversary in the reservation, we would not be seated in such a noisy area. The service was still great. My husband loved the crab cakes. They tasted very fresh. I had a steak. It was good but had some charred places that made some of the pieces taste burnt. I love their key lime pie and my husband enjoyed the chocolate cake. We had a lovely time and look forward to our next Anniversary dinner there.

This is the go-to place when my wife and I want a really good meal. The deviled eggs were delicious as usual. My wife ordered a filet with baked potato and salad, and I had the New York Strip and NYO mac and cheese. Although the strip was flavorful, it had a little more fat in it this time than it normally does. The mac and cheese was as good as it always is. We got the crème brulee to finish off, and it was very good. Overall, J. Alexander's has become what we expect each and every time; it is why it is out go-to restaurant in Chattanooga.

Too loud and overpriced. Wait staff was excellent. Several in our party reported good food. One reported half of steak was gristle. One reported chicken was over cooked. All in all, staff was friendly and service was good. Not a good place to talk and visit.

I booked reservations out of town for an anniversary dinner. I thought this would be a quiet and romantic place for some awesome food. I can't complain about the food much, it was very tasty and good but a bit over priced compared to other steaks equally as good for half the price. I was quite disappointed though that the noise level was as loud as it was. The kitchen was noisy and everyone was talking so loud it was hard to enjoy it as a romantic dinner, more like a loud noisy bar. Other than that the experience was okay. I would probably not return again just based on the noise level and lack of romantic quiet ambience that I thought I was paying for.

Six of us attended on April 21 (Easter). We had made reservations about 3 weeks before. Our table was ready when we arrived, the server was very good and attentive to our needs. We ordered appetizers and wine. The food everyone ordered arrived in a reasonable amount of time and was cooked as we ordered (three of us had prime rib)... We were blown away when dessert arrived we ordered their "Amazing Stuff" a 1 foot tall triangle of ice cream, oreos, caramel and pecans (3 of them, which we naturally shared). We waddled out of there with very happy tummies...
