I recently met a friend for lunch at Redlands Grill, the current name for this restaurant on Lake Cook Road in the J Alexander family of restaurants.

I ordered the fish special which was grilled rainbow trout filet. It was cooked perfectly and had a wonderful char grilled flavor. It was served with rice and vegetables. My friend had the Southern Salad which she enjoyed.

The service was excellent! Every time our iced tea glasses were empty a fresh one arrived. It's a great restaurant but a bit expensive for lunch, e.g. $17 for a salad with grilled chicken. I would return as the food and service were very good. It has a nice ambience.

Took some friends there on a Saturday night, made reservations. The staff was very friendly and helpful: Dinner was amazing. We had Barbeque, and salmon. Everyone was very pleased.

We have not been to J Alexander's in a number of years, but decided to try it again Sunday night for dinner. We were pleasantly surprised. The Chef's Recommendations were outstanding, and that is what we went with. My wife had the 10oz Prime Rib with mashed potatoes. She truly enjoyed it, it was cooked just right, very tender and juicy with good flavor. The portion size was perfect. I had the 10oz NY Strip with mashed potatoes instead of fries. Again it was prepared perfectly and the portion size was more then enough. For a starter we shared a Caesar Salad. The Salad was huge and the dressing complimented the croutons and romaine perfectly. At $20 for the Prime Rib and $25 for the Strip Steak, it was a great value. The Salad was only $6.00, since we had entrees. This meal was a super value.

As far as service goes, we sat in the bar area and had the bartender as our waiter. Because the bar was a bit busy we did not see him to often, but that was made up for by everyone else serving us.

Great food and great service means we will be coming back.

Went there on Saturday night for dinner with my wife. We made a reservation. I ate at J. Alexander's in Michigan and really liked it. It was just as good here.
We had the crab cakes and the fried shrimp. Very good. Service was fantastic.
It was a little pricey but worth it. We enjoyed it and will definitely go back. It will be more on special occasions but will be back.
