Not a great experience or meal. We had a 6:45 reservation and were not seated until 7:15. People who checked in after us were seated before us. Once we were seat the service was slow. Our food ticket was lost, so once again the tables that ordered after us received their food before us. Nothing was done for us for this issue. Additionally, someone in our group ordered the prime dip sandwich ($15-20) but the prime rib ($30) was brought out. We let our waitress know and she asked if he instead wanted the sandwich or to keep the rib (at no extra charged). He said he would just keep the rib since we had already had such a long wait. She charged us for the $30 prime rib, not the sandwich. Overall a very poor experience.

If you are there for a dinner and you wish to enjoy a conversation, forget it...it is way too loud. This is a shame because... the food is good, the service was outstanding and the ambiance is superb!! Management needs to find a way to tamp down the noise level, so that folks from one dining table/booth to another can have a meaningful conversation without each party talking over the other.

Great place! Convenient location. Staff is second to none. They work as a team so drinks and food are always refilled and prompt. Menu is well rounded. Deviled egg appetizer is great!

My buddies and I were coming back from a Treetops golf weekend. Passed up a lot restaurants on the way to get to J’s in Livonia. Two ordered the prime rib, one ordered the Ahi Tina salad, and I had the Tuna steak filet. All of us agreed that our meals exceeded our expectations. Topped it off with the delicious carrot cake dessert! Yum! Our server Elyse was a great! She had great product knowledge and was very attentive! Thanks J’s!

The food is always on point but the service, which use to be outstanding was poor. Our server Destiny, was horrible. She put down our bill with our coffee then never came back. Destiny walked by our table several times but never even acknowledged us again.

Waitress was amazing, customer service was fantastic. On the other hand, the food was very dry. I ordered the Rotisserie chicken and it was very dry I had to keep refilling my water. The broccoli with OK a little tough. The mashed potatoes were really bland and dry.

We dined at J. Alexander's to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The food was excellent as expected, however, our server was not as attentive as we felt he should have been. The restaurant seemed a bit noisy but not enough to spoil our experience. We will definitely return.

My food came with bacon when I asked for no bacon. My food finally came after everyone was pretty much done eating. Salad is small for $18
