Recently discovered this restaurant. I highly recommend it. Great food: starters, lunch and dinner. I had the tuna steak and my wife had the roast chicken. Both were the best we’ve had in the Nashville Area. Creme brûlée desert was very good. Service was outstanding.

Any time we go the this restaurant, we freeze!! To the point where it makes your food cold fast. best thing to do say something to your waiter because usually they will adjust it, not sure why they have a freezing cold restaurant every time.....More

My brother and I ate at j Alexander's after a friend's referral. We weren't disappointed. The chicken was delicious and the portions are huge. Well worth it.

We've eaten here several times and every time it is delicious and the service is very good. If you want a quiet meal on a weekend you need to get there early because after 6 it is busy.. Lunches are also very good.

After a rather tiring day at a trade show, we knew we didn't want to go back to our room and then turn around and go out for dinner, so we pulled into J Alexander's on the way back to our hotel. We knew it...More

My wife and I have been going to J Alexander’s for years. Food, service, atmosphere and parking are excellent. Prices have gone up a lot. We’d go much more if J Alexander’s had Happy Hour; we go to Bonefish for Happy Hour drinks and food.

My daughter has outgrown the kids menu, but they used to have a kids menu AND give the kids an etch-a-sketch. She loved it. I have no doubt but that they will do wonders for your kids when you go.
