They overbook!!! When we arrived with a reservation for five, they said table wasn’t ready. People were just getting their entrees. It might take half hour. This has happened twice before. When I asked for manager, he did little. He kept saying he was sorry...- not enough staff. So I asked why did he take the reservation that afternoon if they didn’t have enough staff. His sorry was perfunctory. Probably says it every night, over and over. Didn’t offer anything. Be forewarned. We left. Poor management, organization and misleading!!!More

I started going to J Alexanders after I moved to West Palm beach since we enjoyed the one they have in Plantation Fl where we used to live. We enjoy the restaurant because the food is always good and consistent with efficient service. But somehow...things have changed in WPB and it is not what it used to be. Not only is the food not as tasty or consistent, but the service has slowly gone from very good, to fair, and now terrible. The staff is disorganized and aloof. In my last two visits, the food has come out wrong, cold, and improperly cooked. Today I literally had to get up and go find someone to tell them my burger which was ordered rare was cooked well done. After we all finished eating no one ever come by to give us our check. The table next to me hears us talking about the absentee service only to tell us that they have been waiting to place their order for 20 minutes and no one has come by to take the order. Finally I get up and see a hostess and ask her to get our server to get the check. She said she would, but instead, as I watched her, she continued to look into her tablet and returned to the front reception and our server never came. So again I got up and found someone and asked for the manager who finally got our check. Wow what a change in the wrong direction is such a short time. After going to J Alexanders for many years this is probably my last visit.More

Went for lunch today with their signature Onion Rings in mind. They don't do them anymore. Very disappointed but do understand about the prep and waste. Had great service from Bryan who could not have been nicer. Had the steak burger which was good but...should have gotten their Cheeseburger. Very nice place with moderate to expensive prices. Will return.More

J. Alexander's restaurants are some of our favorites. This was our first time at this location and we were very pleased with the service and food. The restaurant is also a beautiful one with great decor and a very nice screened patio with bar. I...ordered the prime rib and was quite pleased. It was tender and cooked to perfection. Served along with a large baked potato and Alex's salad it was a delicious dinner. My wife ordered the grilled chicken salad which she enjoyed very much. The dinners are somewhat expensive but this is a situation where you get what you pay for. We'll continue to go to J.'s whenever possible.More

Great menu with a variety of salads, starters, main courses including fish, chicken, and steak. Excellent kitchen, and wait staff that will do what it takes to make your meal enjoyable. The prices are reasonable and the restaurant layout is comfortable and subtle. I highly...recommend it for lunch or dinner.More

Arrived at J's A's around 6pm. The bar was empty so I asked to sit there at a high top. Low chairs and high top made me feel like I needed a shovel to eat my meal. I wasted no time ordering a 16 oz...prime rib with horsey sauce, steamed broccoli. The meal was at my table in less than 5 minutes. The broccoli was hardly cooked. The prime rib was the worst I ever tasted. It looked like it came from a package. There wasn't a lick of spices and it looked like a hospital dish. The manager came over and we discussed the meal. She did without hesitation bring a new menu. I chose the 16oz strip steak. I ordered it Pittsburg medium with the broccoli . She said we will try but, was not sure they could make it that way. The steak was cooked to temp but not Pittsburg. Again the broccoli was not cooked enough. Even though they did their best to please me I probably won't be back.More

Delicious take out dinner. We ordered calamari for an appetizer, french dip and prime rib. While I initially thought it was a bit pricey, the food was AMAZING. We ordered online and received confirmation of our order being submitted as well as an email notification...our order was ready for pick up. The directions for pick up were listed clearly in the email too making the entire process smooth. I would highly recommend JAlexanders and plan on going again in the near future.More

Totally clean ready for the new normal. Awesome food and the not your normal Mac n Cheese is a must. Beef was great, ribs as well. Salads awesome as well. Don't forget dessert, it's awesome.

This restaurant is amazing. I saw really good reviews here on TripAdvisor and some friends invited me to go. My first impression was pretty good. The service is really great and food was delicious. The starters were so good that I recommend the artichoke. The...main dishes we ordered were the baby back ribs and the tuna dish were really good! The restaurant is casual but you can also have a formal dinner. Don't hesitate to go! Prices $$ - $$$. Highly recomended!More
