We've eaten here several times and every time it is delicious and the service is very good. If you want a quiet meal on a weekend you need to get there early because after 6 it is busy.. Lunches are also very good.

My husband and I always enjoying eating at J Alexander's when we are in the area. The food is great and we also like the carrot cake. The price of the food is about right for the area.

My wife and I have been going to J Alexander’s for years. Food, service, atmosphere and parking are excellent. Prices have gone up a lot. We’d go much more if J Alexander’s had Happy Hour; we go to Bonefish for Happy Hour drinks and food.

Stopped in for an early dinner. I love the pork tenderloin with mashed potatoes, it has the most interesting sauce called bang bang. A little like soy but with a little smokey kick. I also had a caesar salad for $6.00 that you could add...More

Ok, this is a great restaurant, with wide selections. Outstanding service. What one must do is save room for the carrot cake and French press coffee. Sure hit!

My daughter has outgrown the kids menu, but they used to have a kids menu AND give the kids an etch-a-sketch. She loved it. I have no doubt but that they will do wonders for your kids when you go.
