We have gotten into a routine that our Sunday evenings are planned so that we are returning home by way of the J. Alexander's restaurant. We love the fire-grilled artichoke hearts as an appetizer. And the remoulade sauce is to dip the artichokes in is to die for. The salads are all unusual, tasty and plentiful. The Thai Kai Salad... More

We eat at J. Alexander's at least once a week and it's always a quality meal and drink experience but one suggestion on this Sunday night...the Grey Goose Cosmo should be a Grey Goose Cosmo not Grey Goose Pinnacle for $12.00. The extra pink cosmo - almost red- disappoints compared to the usual light pink quality of the Grey Goose... More

This visit rates just ok. They have just one Rose wine on their list and they were out of it, Spring Break, St Pat's Day, and early on a Friday? Trout comes with rice, btw. Had I known I would not have subbed a potato for the slaw. Crab cakes are outrageously priced. Trout was nothing special. Best thing was... More

Be alert if you plan to take someone who is very elderly to this noisy place. They setup two round tables to accommodate 7 adults and two children. How awkward for everyone to have to lean around to talk to each other. The food was presented HOT!. But the waiter forgot an order of their famed mac&cheese. The wait was... More

The service, food and drinks are incredible. This is the best all around restaurant in the City. My wife and I go here at least once a week.

I'm new to J Alexander. It's been here in San Antonio for many years. I have just now discovered it and love their Chicken Pasta Soup. Chicken, plump sugar snap peas and penne pasta floating in a rich and creamy soup stock all seasoned with just the right salt and pepper. The two salads I've tried to date are the... More
