They have great salads, especially the kale. Top it with salmon or chicken. Best appetizer, the salmon dip. It is so good. Enough for a meal. You can't leave without ordering their famous carrot cake. Get it warm. They also have a nice assortment of wine. My only wish is they had good Italian wines.

We were 2 couples and had made a reservation days before via Open Table ... we arrived promptly and they were VERY busy ... we were seated within 10 minutes in the atrium ... we were actually glad to be away from the hustle bustle of the bar and main dining room ... we had cocktails, split a few appetizers...

I've never had anything bad here. We went for mother's day. The crab cakes were excellent as was the prime rib. The service is always exceptional. It is a little on the pricy side but for a special occasion it's worth it.

Good food! Fresh flavors. Carrot cake is to die for, i would prefer it without the sugar icing though. Excellent service. Not a great choice for business meeting as it is too loud so I had to almost shout to get myself heard.

I wanted someplace special for dinner to celebrate a pre Mother's Day for one of my daughters and Teacher of the year award for another and they chose J Alexander! What a delightful dining experience! The good was plentiful and delicious. The Chocolate desert was enough for five! Our waitress, Camrie, was a real delightful foodie and extremely helpful. I...

I live on Florida now. I have to go to J Alexander's every time we come in to town. We have been eating here for over 14 years now and. Don't plan on stopping. There is nothing but excellent food here. Everything you order you can't go wrong. The chicken pasta soup is outstanding. Only wish they served Steak Tuscany... More

This restaurant is a bit more upscale than some, and the prices reflect it. But the food is always good, and the service is excellent. Great salads and carrot cake! Perfect for a business lunch, or a romantic dinner.
