My boyfriend and I went here for our Valentine's date. It was better than we expected! When we arrived, the wait was less than fifteen minutes. Our food was fabulous. I couldn't believe the size of the steak. HUGE! Loved it. We will be back!

I've eaten at this restaurant multiple times. I took my wife for our Valentine's dinner and I ordered the grouper. It was so tough that I had to use a knife to cut it. The waiter was not very personable. The manager did comp my meal and was very apologetic about the meal I was presented. In due time, I... More

Great menu and always interesting daily specials. The four of us ordered various appetizers and entrees so that we could share and taste. Everything was delicious. No disappointments. Our waiter was patient and courteous. We were able to extend our visit and relax in our booth due to a slow, rainy Tuesday evening.

We so enjoyed our dinner there. Just to let you know the charge slip is listed as Redlands Grill. We thought the grilled chicken salad was the best we had ever had. We enjoyed a cheeseburger also. Our server was great. It was so well managed. Our seating time was within the minute of their estimate. We did have to... More

The food was excellent as was the service. I would definitely recommend to others and would return. The only down side is that it is not conducive to large groups. We had a group of nearly 20 and had to sit at a total of four tables. This made interaction among your colleagues a challenge.

We expected it to be busy on a Saturday night but when they won't take a reservation, don't accept call ahead seating and insist that all members of the party are present before putting you on the list, things get out of hand!! Waiting for almost 2 hours to get a table for 6 (not a large group) and spending... More

My husband and I recently ate dinner here for the first time. We made reservations and so glad that we did because this place was packed. I had the beef kabob and my husband had the prime rib. Both dishes were great and the servings were large. We shared a salad that was fresh and the salad dressing was homemade.... More

The Prime rib sandwich was amazing. We also had the Steak Burger which was also delicious. Service was great also.

The six of us complete our day at the Berber Racetrack by having dinner at J.Alexander. The waiter was outstanding and efficient. Food was fantastic: from the prime rib to the kabob on rice, one of us still had room for dessert: the best creme brulee this side of the Eiffel tower. The restaurant was packed but the noise level... More
