Our party averaged $50 each including wine and dessert. "Excellent": Service, Cheeseburger, Thai Kai Salad, Alexanders Salad, French Fries, Baked Potato (crusty skin), Carrot Cake (very nutty and spicy) and wine selection. Merely "Very Good": Key Lime Pie (similar to lime flavored cheesecake versus tangy lime favor), Filet Kabobs (Vegetables Excellent; however, Filet meat was part Excellent & part merely... More

My favorite restaurant in Overland Park. You really cant go wrong with any of the menu choices. The tacos were a bit on the small size for portion, last time I ordered them, but I'm just nit picking. Love the steaks, the fish, the salads, the orzo & wild rice, the burgers are good, even the chicken fingers are excellent.... More

This restaurant was excellent from beginning to end. Tried a new cocktail, Doppleganger, which was a treat. And the Cilantro Shrimp was excellent!! Would certainly return.

Traveling through Kansas I wanted a fancier dinner- good steak and a good drink! This place delivered! Steaks being their specialty were very flavorful! We ordered file and a prime rib! Good drink choices! Large and strong!

This was our first time visiting a J. Alexander's restaurant, we were blown away! Everything was delicious! The steaks were filled with flavor, tender and mouthwatering. The side of mac n cheese was the best we've ever had, very creamy and flavorful! We also had the Carolina Chicken Tenders, ironic since we are from the Carolinas, they were also fantastic,... More

The food was good but the service was even better. I had the club sandwich and it was perfect. I'm not a fan of shoestring fries but they weren't bad but I would go baked or mashed.

Why yes and no you can ask???!!! Yes/no: nice food but not fabulous, good service but not perfect, nice restaurant but not amazing, nice wine but not good except if you don't pay quite a lot of money! So once you can try it but then you will realize that it's enough! Enjoy it!

Expect to pay a lot for small servings. Food is good, but to get a decent amount you should plan to spend a lot of money.

We ate here for the first time about 6 months ago. I gave it 5 stars across the board. We were so looking forward to eating here again. We got there around 11:30 am on a Wednesday. There were about 6 people at the entry way in front of us. The hostess told us it would be about a 10... More

Over time, J Alexanders has become the go-to restaurant for special occasions. The service is always spot-on and welcoming. We love to take my Mom because she simply loves the prime rib sandwich. My wife loves the Alex's salad, with good reason, and I always, inevitably, order the soon-to-be famous Rattlesnake Pasta. Although we're almost always too full, we sometimes... More
