This was our second dinner at J Alexanders, this time, a party of 4, and can say that the food was consistently very good. One person had prime rib - excellent; 2 had cod special, also very good as was the crab cakes, with lots of lump crab. The spinach queso appetizer is addictive. Service was friendly but a bit disjointed - forgetting silverware after cleaning table of first course and waiting for it when entrees were served. Also ordered a glass of wine when entrees were delivered and by the time it came, I was nearly finished. They apologized for delay and comped the appetizers which was nice. Overall good experience and would definitely go back. Food and service is very good and price is much more reasonable than other steak houses nearby.

Wish you would offer chicken tenders as an appetizer and offer a sweet & spicy chili dipping sauce.
Love the chicken tenders, deviled eggs, maui steak, key lime pie, coffee, espresso, husband loved the salmon. Friends love Hawaiian sushi, fries, barbecue sauce, chicken tenders, ribs, mac & cheese.
Everyone loves your cocktails !
Very friendly & attentive wait staff.
You could use thicker shades to block out setting sun, and room could use a bit more light for us old folks.

Our first visit here was outstanding and we couldn't wait to come back. This visit started off on the wrong foot from the second the server came to our table. He had a chip on his shoulder and displayed attitude the entire time we were there like we were an annoyance to him. I hope this was an "off" day for him; however, considering the type of establishment he works at, I would expect better.

The food was great though.

I LOVE J Alexander’s I really do but this is now the 3rd time we’ve had an issue. We ordered appetizers and entrees. We waited 45 min and everything came out at the same time. We had to send the entrees back and I’m sure they just reheated them. The server was great but I don’t know why this keeps happening (apps and entrees at same time).

I was disappointed in both the food and the service. It truly felt like a chain restaurant. Service was rushed and it felt like the waitress just wanted us out of there.

The food was avg. my gf had a steak that was overdone. My ribs and sauce were just ok and over cooked as well.

Overall disappointing meal after hearing good things about the place.

Overall the food was pretty good. I got the Spicy Hawaiian roll and bok choy. My complaint was the roll wasn't spicy at all, but was still good. We also got the deviled eggs as an appetizer and those were delicious. I ordered the drink with bulleit rye, blueberry, and ginger beer and the manhattan that was on the drink menu. Both were really good. The service was awesome. Very personable staff.

My second time here. This was a girlfriend celebration of my birthday and it was a great time! Started at the bar with exceptional martinis and a manhattan. Love how the extra martini is automatically given. Drinks were strong and well made. The servers/bartenders are all dressed so well with their hair up - love that! Our server was Tyler and he was really fabulous! Attentive, fun, engaging, and exact with our food and drink orders. The food was wonderful! This time had filet medallions which were cooked perfectly! Friend had ribs which were melting off the bone and the sauce was perfect! Before I had crab cakes which were literally all big chunks of delicious crab! Have had deviled eggs, grilled artichoke and calamari as apps. All delicious! Desserts - carrot cake was warm and huge! Key lime was perfect. But that chocolate cake (with a candle in it for my birthday) was just decadent! All around, I love this spot! Makes me feel like I’m in the City (only with lots of parking!) because of the diverse crowd and the ambience. Recommend highly for those who don’t want to drive into the City but want a top notch evening out! Good job J. Alexanders!

Good day and thank you! This was my 2nd experience at J. Alexander and both times exceeded my expectations.

On this visit my brother and i arrived an hour early than scheduled. The hostess happily accommodated us and immediately found us a table.

This was my brother's 1st experience and he is already planning our next vist.

I am well pleased with J Alexander's and will return in the near.

Thank you!
God Bless!

Took my husband here for a birthday celebration and was very impressed with the service. The food was tasty and well presented. The prices were higher end but less expensive than the local steak houses. The price for a draft beer however was a bit over the top ($8). Overall a good experience and we will be returning in the near future.

While the food was quite good, the service and food preparation was terribly slow (without apology or explanation). We ordered simple items to prepare: soup, steak, house salad, and baked potatoes—the food arrived after a long delay (without apology or explanation).
