We have eaten at Alexander’s many times and have always touted it as the place that gets it right time after time. Not tonight...our first sub-par experience. Table missing water glasses, some silverware, wife ordered chicken was served ribs, Mac-n-cheese tasted off. We will be back, just hope tonight was a hiccup.

J Alexander's is our ( hubby and I) favorite restaurant. It is our go to place for romantic dinners, birthdays, date night etc. We absolutely love this place. We even compare other restaurants when we want to try something different, but so far, none surpasses our first love. The steak at J Alexanders is better than most steak house restaurants. The chicken tenders are a must have. We have never been disappointed in the 10 years of dining at J Alexanders.

We went for our 49th anniversary last Saturday the 1st. The only issue I had was if I’m paying $40 for a meal that’s a higher end restaurant. There were so many screaming kids around us!! Who brings a 3-4 yr old to a nice restaurant with those high ceilings (which by the way had helium balloons 🎈 stuck up there) & my husband wears hearing aids he had to remove them cause of those kids
IT WAS A QUIET EVENING FOR HIM HE COULDNT HEAR ME EITHER
can’t you designate tables for THOSE ppl that bring their kids?

We were taking a 94 year old relative for her birthday. This was my first time using OpenTable reservations. There was no place that I saw to indicate handicap accessible area. There were no handicap tables available. It took some time for them to accommodate us. The service was poor. Server forgot one of the drinks. Two items on the menu we're no longer available and this was at 6 p.m.

We love this place. Always consistently great. We usually begin with the char grilled artichokes. This time we had the rotisserie chicken and my husband had the fried chicken. Excellent choices. Our favorites are the pork tenderloin and the prime rib. And leave room for dessert, they are terrific. We had the warm chocolate cake and ice cream, it was a real treat!

The food was quite good. The service certainly was slow and little attention paid to needs once food was brought to the table. My friend had to ask several times for cream for the coffee.
