Crab cakes to die for, steaks that melt in your mouth, wait staff that is as disciplined as any I have seen, a sparkling clean restaurant, my favorite salads, chopped smaller and ultra fresh, you must try their specialty tomatoes and mashed potatoes. Their prices are a bit higher than many steakhouses, but still within most diners' budgets. Every wait... More

My husband and I use to say that J Alexander's was our favorite restaurant. However, we were there lately on a Sunday early evening and it has changed. The waitress that served us was too casual with us as though we were old pals instead of patrons that she was serving. For example, it took a while for her to... More

Ate here with my wife. She had the filet and I had the Cajun prime rib. All I can say is "it don't get any better" I have never gotten a bad meal or bad service at this place. This time it was at 3:30 PM. Before I've been there at lunch and at 7:00 PM. It's all good. You... More

We were getting our tires changed at Sears and wanted to grab a bite to eat while we were waiting. We could not have picked a better place. We sat at the bar and watched a few football games on the two big screen t.v.s We then ordered the spinach artichoke dip as an appetizer. That was wonderful. We followed... More

I called for reservations earlier in the day choosing 5:30 PM to beat crowds. We were seated immediately. The dining room looked dark but lights illuminating our table were perfect. Our server was polite and prompt. He took drink orders. My sister was disappointed that there were no frozen drinks available. She ordered wine instead. I requested a 7&7 with... More

My friend and I went to dinner expecting a pricey meal, but not this pricey for quality. We ordered the Fried Artichokes for appetizers which look divine, but were not so at all. We ordered a salad to share between us before our prime rib and smashed potato dinners. We had coffee to drink. It was over $100 and the... More
