Everything was great! From the deviled eggs to the salads with homemade croutons. Also, the steaks were so good no sauce was needed, and the cream brûlée was to die for! The server was awesome she checked on us often and our glasses were never empty!

The food was good, as usual. We arrived at 4:55pm with a 5pm reservation. The hostess asked us to have a seat because she needed to get a table ready for us. We sat for about 5 minutes and then she took us to our table. I did notice that all the tables were already “ready” with napkins and tableware. Place was real slow and not sure why she had us wait.

Excellent food and service as usual! Our server was very attentive and engaged with conversation with us and seemed happy to be there. You don't always get that impression with servers but our server was excellent! We had filets and they were delicious as always!

Its not a bad place. There are just too many other places that are better in the same price range. Food didn’t sit well with my when I got home. Server was personable but service was slow more than likely due to understaffing on a holiday.

J. Alexander's moto is they are "UNCHAINED". You truly feel they are not a chain restaurant. You are met by the greeters with class and the wait staff was on point. Great atmosphere. Great Food.

This is my wife & I favorite place to eat. The atmosphere is romantic and The booths are comfy. The staff is nice and the food is always fresh & superb. Archie is one of the cooks who works hard and makes sure that the food is always hot & fresh. John is the manager who goes out his way to make sure the entire restaurant is running smoothly.

Always enjoy the food at this place. Was a little put off by the hostess - perhaps she was busier than usual, but she seemed distracted. Had to ask twice for our table even though we had a reservation. Service was also sub-par on this visit, but it seemed our waiter was responsible for a lot of people. We'll go back since the food is always good.

I had a business meal this week at J. Alexanders and our experience was outstanding. The Atmosphere is outstanding. I made my Open Table reservation that morning and we were seated immediately when we arrived. The food is always outstanding and the service was even better. Our server was extremely attentive but not overbearing. They have very limited menu but the food is very consistent and plentiful. I would recommend this restaurant for any occasion. I will definitely be back.

One of the best places for ribs, steak, and seafood. Excellent surroundings, very comfortable chairs and booths. Very good service which doe not "bug " you while eating your meal. One of the few places in Metro Atlanta that takes care of its customers

Dining at J Alexander’s is always a great choice. This occasion was even better. Danielle was friendly and professional, and an overall great server. We asked if one of the specials we have had, that was not on the menu for today, was available. Sure enough we were able to get the special.
Just another great example of how great the service and food is here. Loved all 4 courses and can’t wait to come back.

Thank you so much for seating us before the full party arrives when we have a reservation. For business meals, it increases the opportunity for connection and sharing without the wait in the lobby awkwardness.
