J Alexander’s is my favorite restaurant!! It is consistently delicious, fun atmosphere and the service is outstanding as a rule. Some of my favorite items are the cypress salad chopped using grilled chicken, cheeseburger and fries, Caesar salad, grilled salmon, macaroni and cheese, and of course the very best chocolate cake, which is actually the name that wonderful dessert goes by. My husband loves the fish tacos and the French dip sandwich. His cousins commented when we were there with them Saturday night that it was the best filet they’ve ever had! You can’t go wrong by going to J Alexander’s!!

Food as always excellent. For a customer who has come to the restaurant 10+ years service has slipped a bit. This time we checked in about 20 minutes early to the reservation time of 6:45 pm we had confirmed on Open Table. We were asked to wait the 20 which was absolutely fine. At 7:10 we checked on our table and were told we had been crossed off as not in the restaurant. We did get the next open table. Server got our order wrong and also billed us incorrectly, which we noticed and corrected.

Have never been to one of the J. Alexander's restaurants and was very pleasantly surprised. We had EXCELLENT service, from Vince, and a really good meal for the value, as well as a pretty good pour on the drinks. Will go again.

My wife and I came here for our wedding anniversary. We made reservations and were seated promptly. We ordered the Calimari as an appetizer which was very fresh. Our waitress was very pleasant, engaging and attentive. For the main course we ordered the Parmesan Crusted Steak (very good) with the Mac n Cheese (amazing). My wife had the Crab Cakes (Excellent) with the Smashed Potatoes (highly recommend). The chocolate cake is lights out. Very decadent along with the ice cream. Would highly recommend this place.

We loved our dining experience. Hats off to wonderfully talented chefs they are brilliant. They are very customer service from greeting at front check in, seating and the dining services despite it gets very busy after 6pm on a Friday evening. Booking on open table in advance is a great feature to enjoy😊💛

We stopped in at 9pm for an appetizer & dessert. There was no wait (though we had already reserved on Open Table). Walking in it was a little weird... the kitchen is open and not exactly beautiful. The dining room, however was very nice, dimly lit, warm wood tones, and comfortable for date night or easy conversation.

Instead of getting an appetizer, we decided to split the steak burger with mac & cheese subbed for the fries. The burger was cooked as requested and was very tasty. The mac & cheese was excellent!

Our server, Daniella, was fantastic! She was very knowledgeable about the menu, gave great suggestions, & promptly refilled our drinks.

Even though we split the burger & mac & cheese... we were too full for dessert so we took a piece of carrot cake home. It was good- not my favorite (not a coconut lover) but if you like coconut I’m sure you’ll love it!

Overall it was a nice late-night spot that we will likely visit again!

J. Alexanders has been my favorite restaurant now for over 20 years. We are fortunate enough to live near 3 locations in south Florida with each one being as good as the others. The food and service is always consistent and top notch. I've tried many other so-called 4 and 5 star establishments, but in my opinion J. Alexanders is much better in terms of food quality and service. J. Alexanders is the high bar by which I compare all others and they usually come out on top.

I had a surprise birthday dinner there and in advance I advised the hostess after dinner to please add chocolate cake with Happy Birthday. She advised she will make the notes and even asked for the spelling g of the birthday boy name. Never received the cake. Once I received the bill I knew something was wrong so I had to text a friend to call the restaurant for the cake and they put it in a to go box instead of a plate with the writing as previsoly requested SMH.

Always well-made food here. Steak Maui - great taste and cooked to a perfect medium rare, Pork Tenderloin - always super tender and juicy (good sauce but can be too much), then Ahi Tuna Steak - got a perfect rare sear with great taste and sauce. Sides—smashed potatoes, coleslaw, NYO mac & cheese—are always good. Lastly, artichokes and queso dip are great appetizers, and carrot cake a great dessert. Atmosphere could be better though, a little dark and loud.

Crab cakes were excellent, salad delicious, steak was ordered medium and was well done. No one came by to check on us, which is unusual, but the restaurant was full and very busy. When I did show our server my filet mignon, she asked if I wanted another one. I said no. Everyone else was finished eating. A manager arrived and said that she would cook another one for me to take home. Everyone was pleasant and aimed to please.

Server Skylar sucked! Had to be reminded of an order for a second glass of wine, after waiting 10 minutes, while food got cold. She seemed disinterested throughout the night, and took awhile to bring the check, amongst other things.

Food was otherwise good, as expected of the place. The service missed the mark on a few details, which really took a lot away from the experience.

Place is loud as usual.

Ribeye steak AMAZING, Mexican queso should be illegal! Carpaccio special was perfection...but the carrot cake was the Over Top Best dessert EVER! Love that they have wines listed on the blackboard at the bar, made it easy and quick to order at the very busy bar.

Well done team, well done!!!

Reservation was honored on time. Menu offers all types of food and something for everyone. The restaurant is always crowded with a high noise level. It is not for you if you seek a quiet dining experience. The food is good and cooked to order. Service is attentive but not over bearing.

We enjoy our wine every night at dinner. Very disappointed, second trip to J Alexander’s and no Prisoner Wine. No bella Glos Pinot Noir. After all this, they used to sell Williamette Valley by the glass, bottles only.

We left and called Saturday and Sunday, looking to book on open table and NO wines came in for the weekend.

Off to Brimstone.
