J Alexander's came recommended for their carrot cake, so we decided to see what the hype was about. We tried the steak burger and fish taco. Both were presented well and tasted really delicious. Then...we had the carrot cake. This is probably the best carrot cake that is served warm and simply melts in your mouth. Servers were very professional... More

Really enjoyed the meal again. Have been here many times and never had a bad experience. I had Asian salad which was delicious. Also shared the salmon dip which was fantastic. Will definitely be back.

The restaurant is clean with a very nice decor. The wait staff is friendly and attentive. My party of 10 were all served at the same time and all like their dinner selections. I recommend the barrel cut filet mignon with bernaise sauce and baked potato.

I travel to Louisville at least once per year and went to a restaraunt that I had never been at before: J Alexander's. I knew I was going the night before and checked out the menu. I thought it looked very good with interesting and a varied selection. I got the calamari appetizer and tortillas with broccoli dip and salsa... More

This is one of our "go to" places in Louisville. Great wine selection, food is always great with a special note ot the salads and steaks. Never disappoints. Could use some better lighting?

After doing a little shopping in the immediate area my spouse and I opted to have a late lunch at J Alexanders as we had not dined there in quite a while. We were greeted courteously and our server arrived promptly. He was very familiar with the menu and even brought my spouse a sample of the soup of the... More

We're still impressed! A few weeks ago we wanted a good steak, you know one that you don't mind paying for. We thought maybe we should stick with what we like, but decided to try something new since we had a $50 gift card to Morton's Steakhouse. SO SORRY WE DID! Won't go into details as we've already did a... More

Good was ok. Service was ok. But to tell you the truth they missed a chip in my cocktail glass and then the initial drink was week. Ordered the pork loin filet. To saucy which overpowered the pork itself I really don't know if I'd go back. Just nothing special.
