Reservation was acknowledged and we were seated promptly. All orders were correct. Our server was very friendly and checked often to see if we needed anything. Overall, a very good experience.

The Panned Trout was dry, certainly a surprise for a $25 price. The coleslaw was bland. Service was good for a patio experience. My guest didn't rave about her Ahi Tuna salad either.

We were celebrating my mom’s birthday. She turned 86. She shared that this was one of her best birthdays. We had two tables and the staff worked well to make sure they gave the best service and my mom felt special. Mission accomplished.
We definitely will return based on food, service and we had a memorable time at your restaurant.

I’ll be honest, we don’t go that often and in the past it’s been fantastic but this time the food just wasn’t up to regular standards.

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...👍👍👍
