Everyone was welcoming, they did forget our salad but made up for it very well which is great because most places don’t.

The food and overall experience was pretty good. However, I was super confused who was actually helping us. We had 5-6 people help us--which was fine...but we had no clue who our waiter/waitress was or who to ask for help. The person who took our order--we didn't see her again at all.

The food and service was superb! Celebrated a birthday, although there was no recognition of it (as noted on our reservation), we still had a great time. The spinach queso and fish tacos are the best!

J Alexander's is always wonderful! My friends and I all remarked on the quiet atmosphere, and the beautiful decorations. This is my favorite place in Lexington to simply go and spend quality time with special people. The food is always will above expectations, as well as simply beautiful to look at. I had their special of the day, which was a BBQ chicken with fries and cole slaw. I substituted the cole slaw for the special vegetable of the day, brussel sprouts. Everything was extremely delicious.

The deviled eggs are a delicious appetizer ! The salads are huge, fresh and enough for two meals. We shared appetizer and salad. Our server was very personable and recognized us from a previous experience. This restaurant is nearly perfect but I wish it wasn’t so dark.

Enjoyed Sunday lunch on my son’s birthday. Party ordered fried shrimp, cheeseburger, spinach con queso and seared tuna w/mixed greens. Service was spot on, food was very tasty and we shared a large piece of carrot cake (free). Server was very friendly and talkative which we enjoyed. We will return soon.

Food was great, per usual. Noise level seemed a little louder than normal. Service was excellent.

Appetizer: we shared chicken tenders and chips & queso. Chicken was very juicy — might order the full meal of that sometime.

Dinner: pimento cheese bacon burger. Wow. It was delicious, though messy.

Dessert: chocolate cake for my birthday. The cake is VERY dense and moist. It’s a bit intense but really good. Would recommend — get some French press coffee with is to really set it off.

The team at J. Alexander’s is very attentive. No one walks by a table without at least scanning to see if you need anything.
Food is always good, and the restaurant is perfectly clean and maintained. Great place.

Had a lovely dinner on a Thursday night. Pork tenderloin was outstanding and enough for 2 - two ladies split this entree and each had a salad and nice glass of wine and we were completely satisfied. Service was prompt and efficient and it was quiet enough that we could actually chat without yelling across the table. Major points for that! I have eaten here several times and always had good food and a good experience.

I am a repeat customer. Every time I have the opportunity to entertain a business guest or a relative in from out of town we always start with J. Alexander's. One of the "gems" of South Lexington. The entire experience is always great. Service, food, refreshments, desserts - all outstanding and very consistent. The chef and his/her staff are to be commended for delicious entree's that are always consistent. I continue to try something new each time I visit. I am yet to be disappointed. One suggestion for every new diner here.... try the Salmon Dip Appetizer - second to none!

My husband and I went for our anniversary dinner. It was a little pretentious. My steak had no flavor other than the char. Normally I don’t complain about the price but my steak and a side of Mac and cheese wasn’t worth the $29 I paid for it. I didn’t express my concern to the staff because it makes my husband uncomfortable. Overall not a great experience
