My husband and I recently ate dinner here for the first time. We made reservations and so glad that we did because this place was packed. I had the beef kabob and my husband had the prime rib. Both dishes were great and the servings were large. We shared a salad that was fresh and the salad dressing was homemade.... More

The Prime rib sandwich was amazing. We also had the Steak Burger which was also delicious. Service was great also.

The six of us complete our day at the Berber Racetrack by having dinner at J.Alexander. The waiter was outstanding and efficient. Food was fantastic: from the prime rib to the kabob on rice, one of us still had room for dessert: the best creme brulee this side of the Eiffel tower. The restaurant was packed but the noise level... More

Also known as Redlands Grill! This was our first time to visit this establishment. The parking was full and we didn't think we would get in, but were seated right away. I must say the food was amazing the Service was outstanding, wonderful atmosphere! This restaurant serves chicken, fish, steaks, and amazing sides.

This was my first time at this chain and I left wishing there was this chain around my hometown area. Food was spectacular. Atmosphere was wonderful! I would definitely recommend dining here.

Both my friend and I had a small salad which was a huge portion. I ordered a loaded baked potato which was so big we both shared it. Very good lunch. The wait staff was very good and kept our glasses full.

This is hands down my favorite restaurant. The Cajun Prime Rib is not on the menu so you have to ask for it. It is one of the finest pieces of meat you will ever have on your plate. I have had it many times and it is perfect every time, it's like it melts in your mouth. You have... More

Does not take reservations, but the atmosphere and the food is good. Met my wife there on our first date. Also, kinda noisy in the eating area.

We have been visiting J Alexander's for many years. It was recently acquired by Redlands and I just wanted to put to rest any concerns that it may have changed. It hasn't changed...it still offers very fresh options, a wide variety and daily specials. I have noticed some of the prices have inched up a little (which we expected), but... More

J. Alexander's Restaurant is located in the outer drive of the Riverchase Galleria in Hoover (South Birmingham). 4 of us has an early salad lunch. At 11am it was not crowded although I had made a reservation. The lunch menu is too extensive IMHO. The signature dish is Roast Prime Rib. The table service was prompt and courteous. The salads...
