EVERYTHING at J. Alexander is good! My all-time favorite is the rotisserie chicken. However, this time, I tried the filet kabob! Wow! I was blown away!

My Son graduated from HS and choose a big NY strip for dinner. We went to Alexanders and were very very happy we did. Great service, great recommendations, the best being the banana cream pie that we had for desert. Really great experience.
