This restaurant is considered a real treat by our Floridian friends but today, it was so noisy that it was hard to hear anyone speak and impossible to enjoy the jazz that played in the background. Nonetheless, the food was great. I had the Southern Chicken Salad. We split one chocolate cake desert and ice cream between the four of... More

I end up here 1-2 times a year to meet up with friends and the food, beverage and service is consistently excellent every time. They have a nice upscale vibe so if you want to get a little dressy you won't feel out of place, but they aren't so fussy that you feel under dressed in a clean pair of... More

Went there with friends after a shopping spree in Tampa. Sat at the bar and had great fish tacos, super baked potatoes and a really good piece of carrot cake. Nice decor and atmosphere, fabulous bartenders and seems to be a favorite of the locals. I would recommend it for a really nice dinner or just a place to pop... More

Dined for dinner during a pre-cruise stay. It was 1 1/2 block easy walk from our hotel Courtyard Marriott Tampa-Westshore. We made reservations and had to take a late seating of 8 pm for 6. We walked on over early and was seated by 7:30. Excellent food and service. Definitely recommend

Pasta was not good the chicken was overcooked. It would be better if it was grilled. Very salty was everything. I think it's too expensive for 23 dollars for pasta. The tables were not clean. And the server his clothes looked very dirty. He looked very neglected.

Usually I meet friends at the usual places like Chilis or Applebees. But for something different, we went to J Alexander's for lunch. The food is definitely a cut above the other chains. The service was excellent. The wait staff was attentive without being pushy. The waiter made sure drinks were filled and that everything was a-ok. The food tasted... More

Have not been to restaurant for years. Decided since we were downtown we would pay it a visit. Happy we did! The food was wonderful with large portions, the experience was relaxing, along with great service. We will make sure we do not wait another 15 years before we go back. Loved it!
