Tell them not to close tomorrow. We have been regular customers since they opened and will certainly miss going to one of our favorite restaurants.

So sorry to see them leave this week. BEst fries and burger in town. BEst!! Bayby back ribs were so good! Rival any BBQ place. FRench fries, thin crispy and delicious! Service and management were outstanding. TheNashville Corp office are class act , giving their staff ample notice closure. And an incentive to stay until closure.
Wish they would not leave, but they have their business reasons.

I made a reservation a week in advance for a business lunch via Open Table. We arrived exactly on time and were told they were full and we'd have the next available table. Although they subscribe to Open Table, it not a true reservation. Tables are First Come, First Serve. A reservation via Table only secures your name to a wait list as you arrive.

My family and I had a wonderful experience on Christmas Eve. We unexpectedly arrived 30 minutes before our reservation but our table was ready and waiting for us. The service was excellent and the redfish, prime rib, and filets were excellent. Despite being busy, we found the noise level to be relatively low and the seating space very comfortable.

J Alexander's is our "go to" place for dining. It's in our neighborhood. It's not too casual, and not too fancy...just right! From hamburgers to tenderloins, you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Damien is the best waiter in the house!

The service was exceptional! It was my birthday date night and the manager personally came over to say Happy Birthday and chat with us. The food was superb! But in Houston many places have great food, the win for me with this dining experience was the commitment to excellence in customer service; kind and friendly staff from management to hostess, warm and inviting atmosphere.

We had never been to this restaurant before and came expecting to have an enjoyable brunch with friends we had not seen in quite some time. Staff was friendly, we had made reservations and there was no wait at all. Music was a bit too loud for us to talk easily but the server pleasantly turned it down a bit, which was appreciated. It was a bit dark but we adapted okay. The menu for brunch was ok tho limited. We all chose various kinds of eggs bennedict. I think it might have been good except for two things (and we all feel the same way).....the biscuits the eggs were on were almost impossible to cut and the eggs were virtually cold. The plates were slightly warm which I like but it did not do the eggs any good.
We will not return.

I was very pleased dining at J. Alexander's Houston. It was a bit dark and then the floor was dark; so walking was difficult. One of my guest tripped on the ramp going to the restroom. I brought my four of my five daughters and oldest granddaughter to eat there because I wanted to spend time with just them and to celebrate one of my daughter's 30th birthday. The food was fabulous. Our hostess suggestions of the menu was dead on. Everything she recommended was good; the cobb salad, the shrimp, the pork chop and the ribs! I plan to bring my husband soon.
