Everything was good, I love using OpenTable and being seated right away even when they are crowded.

I brought five ladies with me to celebate three birthdays. No free dessert or a happy hour. My mistake - I won't do that again.

Service was hard to find. It was hard to order a second drink and there was a long wait for it, after the wait staff finally came to the table.

Don’t let them sit you in the back of the restaurant. It appears to be the children’s section. This is the second time I have had a business meeting and have been out in this section.

Usually this location is one of my favorites, but they missed the mark this time.

I remembered it way higher level than what it is today. In everything, service, ambient, food, noise... It is absolutely comparable to much cheaper steakhouses.

Not that busy lots of opening tables. A server dropped a bowl of sour cream right next to us , didn’t apologize and worse didn’t pick it up but sent someone else to pick it up. Our server couldn’t care less if we were there or not. I’ve only been there there 2 other times & believe me I will not be back.Somerset location is excellent no comparison.

Lately when we’ve been to J’s we feel like they rush the food so fast to turn tables,it is a real turn-off. The food was good, as usual, but we’ll think twice about heading back there. Also, the fact that they close at 9 on Thursdays is just weird.

The restaurant closed at 9:00 while it was still light out and potential guests were still arriving hoping to eat. In order to keep them out, the restaurant deadbolted the front door instead of simply engaging the latch on the panic bar. The deadbolt had a small knob on the inside that was not working properly. When we tried to leave shortly after 9:00, we were not able to open the door, and even staff members who tried to open it had tp struggle before they succeeded. If there had been a fire inside the restaurant (and the wood-fired grill was still operating, after all), this could have been a deadly catastrophe. It was a criminal violation of fire codes to deadbolt the door with people still inside, since it rendered the panic bar useless.

The restaurant changed their hours but did not update Open Table. We arrived for our 9:15pm reservation to find the restaurant closed with a note on the door informing potential customers that the restaurant had changed their hours to close at 9pm during the week. Very disappointed in this location.

Overall a good experience but found it a little odd that I wasn't allowed to order two drinks at once....I was hoping to enjoy a bourbon neat with a beer "back" and was told I couldn't...it felt awkward for me and the person telling me.

Waitress Robin was so professional and knowledgeable of the menu. Her recommendations to try the prime rib and smashed potatoes was spot on! We had a party of 6 people and everyone got something different and everyone was truly pleased and happy that I choosed J. Alexander to have my Birthday dinner. I'm looking forward to my return so I can try something different. Thank you waitress Robin you made customer service A1...👍👍👍

My wife and I both had the marinated tenderloin steak tips dinner with rice and veggies. The steak was incredibly delicious. Our server, Candace, was awesome. J. Alexander's is my go-to favorite local restaurant. The food is always great and the drinks are awesome, too, with that extra side car.

While I might recommend for dinner, cannot recommend for lunch. There is no lunch menu, ie, items and prices were the same as for dinner -- and overall more than we would normally spend for lunch. And also more than we might have cared to eat for lunch (ie, no lunch-sized entrees and we didn't want to settle for an appetizer). Our food was very tasty - we were completely satisfied - and our server terrific. But we wanted lunch, not an early dinner. My friend settled for a burger and I had a salad - but not what we had in mind when we decided to go out for lunch.

This was my first time at this place. For years I’ve heard rave reviews. However, I was not impressed. Service was great but the menu lacked options - food and drink. In 2019, what restaurant doesn’t have lemonade or some soda alternative? My entire party didn’t drink soda so are only option was water or alcohol. I ordered a ribeye that came with one side. It was the most fattiest cut I’ve ever had. I couldn’t even chew through it completely because of the fat. Since it was mothers’s day service was fast resembling that of an assembly line. Not much concern or care for customer needs; they just wanted to get customers in and out as fast as possible. Needless to say I will not be back.
