Not worth the price. It's one of those places that's not that good but you still ended up paying $140 for a family of 4 to eat. The wife only ordered soup and salad, no one got drinks, and no appetizers were ordered.

Great place. This is the first time that the prime rib wasn't excellent. It was chewy and not a quality cut. I will not hesitate to go back here again because this is the first time in over 10 times that I have been here that I walked away not completely impressed. Everyplace has their off nights.

Another great meal at J Alexander’s! We started with the Caesar salad and the yummy croissant that comes with it followed by the trout which was a huge piece of fish, perfectly prepared. They let us switch out sides so we both got what we wanted and the features carrot side side was amazing! Service was outstanding - all together a great dining experience!

Mother’s Day! Great food. Did a pretty good job with celiac, but not a separate menu and lots of back and forth with kitchen to confirm options. Waitress was GREAT!

The best prime rib in Columbus, Ohio! A great variety of appetizers, this time we chose the smoked salmon.

Our server, Eva, was incredibly attentive even with the large crowd on Mother's Day.

We ordered Prime rib medium, but when it came they all looked medium rare. We were there to celebrate mother's day and it was kind of late, really didn't want to bother to ask them to recook. I guess each restaurant has their own definition of 'medium' because we never had this problem at any other steak house before.

Other than that, everything else was pretty average to good.

"Meh" at best. We are frequent diners of this location, so I hope this visit is an exception. We were taken to a dirty table, and re-routed to another table (not a big deal, but seemed to foreshadow all of the other issues). We ordered appetizers and were given dirty plates. The appetizers never showed up...our dinner arrived followed by a plate of cold appetizers. The waitress was apologetic and remedied the situation, but it was disappointing. We waited an extremely long time for our dessert as well. All in all, a visit that was definitely not up to their usual par.

I ordered the Cajun strip steak on the special menu- steak was extremely fatty, low grade piece of steak, at least 1/2 of steak I had to spit out because I couldn’t chew it- unacceptable at price range of $36. Waitress apologized then insisted on replacing steak instead of refunding or asking manager to come to table. She agreed to replace steak so quick it was like it didn’t surprise her that it wasn’t great! I accepted a filet to go because of course I was no longer hungry at that point- although she tried to remedy it I guess I was surprised that manager did not come out/ I mean I sent the plate back with a pile of half chewed steak on it, it was that bad. Way below the standard we ate used to at J Alexander’s- we’ve been there many many times in the past years but I gate to say that this left a very bad taste!

Always enjoy J Alexander’s. I tried the fried shrimp this time and they were very good. I noticed a lot of other people getting the shrimp too. The shrimp comes with cole slaw and shoestring fries. I thought the slaw had way too much celery seed and it also tasted oniony. The fries were good, but would have been better if they weren’t salted so heavily. My husband had prime rib, which he always likes, but he said his mashed potatoes were salty also. Our waitress was excellent. We did wait a very long time for our entrees to arrive after the salads, at least 35 minutes.

It had been a few years since we had visited J. Alexander's and for a couple in our party, it was their first visit. The food was absolutely awesome and the service Natalee provided us was stellar. This was my husband's 75th birthday celebration and it was the perfect place to celebrate. Also, the piece of carrot cake they gave him after our meal was just "to-die-for" good!!
We had steaks and prime rib all around and everything was cooked just perfect and tasted soooo good. My New York Strip had everyone else at the table wishing they had ordered that because it was so good.
We will make the effort to get reservations and go to J. Alexander's more often in the coming years!
