Overall was satisfied with the food. Taste to price value was a little skewed the wrong way, but the staff was very accommodating and friendly.

The ambiance is ok, the service ok and the food ok. You get the idea. I ordered the wild rice, and it was 2% wild rice and 95% white rice and A LOT of seasoning. The grilled artichoke much better, but the rice really put me off. The decor is a little worn. The wait staff seemed confused my someone... More

Everything about J Alexander's was awesome. It had been many years since I visited and I will say that I am not going to wait another long time to return. The visit was an overall excellent experience from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. There were five at dinner and we all ordered different items from the... More

Went for my cousins birthday . Food wasn't bragable and never is I went on a date along time ago and was only impressed with the fries and drinks. And the steak was over cooked and took so long. They also weren't clear on their reservation policy. We had 14 people in our party they should of just told us... More

Enjoyed every minute at the restaurant. Our dishes included the Steak Maui which I normally order is always awesome. I opted for the crab cakes this time and they were just as amazing. The filet mignon was tender and delicious. The pasta dish was very fulfilling as well. Great place to dine. Would recommend to families and couples as well.... More

Fell in love with J Alexanders years ago in Tampa. Stopped in for a late Sunday lunch. The prime rib was a special with smashed potatoes. Ours were cooked perfectly and lightly seasoned. TWO THUMBS UP Had to share the warm carrot cake which was Sooooooo Good. Wait staff very friendly and helpful.

We were in the Town Center and needing dinner. We asked the staff at a nearby store to recommend a place. They said J. Alexander's was best. We found the entrees to be wonderful, the drinks good and very reasonable and the waiter very accommodating. Overall, it was somewhat pricey, but well worth it for the quality.

Solid menu, well prepared with an excellent staff. Try the deviled eggs, best i've had. Pork tenderloins pretty heavy on the ginger, but that's depending on your taste.

Brought my family from Out of town for a quick dinner, my wife simply asked for lemon for her water, 3 times, never got it, she then also asked for lemon for her Broccoli when she ordered dinner, her prime rib came swimming in lemon juice, she didn't complain because at that point she just wanted to go home, just...
