Many visits to J Alexander's and always the same result... great service and great food. Was waiting on people and ordered club soda at the bar and was charged for it when all I needed was "well" carbonated water, but I won't make that mistake again. Don't miss the prime rib or the alex salad... both excellent!

I needed something different for a change as I had been going to the same places that were walkable from the Hotel. It was a bit more upscale looking than I wanted, but I was greeted warmly at the bar. I wanted a craft beer and was intimidated by the chalk boards of wine by the glass list and the... More

We stopped at the Worthington location impromptu and to our delight we were treated greatly! They were very busy but the hostess hustled to get us a table even though we did not have a reservation. The food here is always good. The atmosphere is very comfortable and classy. Wine list is great with a lot of affordable options. Fish... More

It has a beautiful atmosphere and was greeted and served by pleasant people. The server was very knowledgable. However, Several items my friend was asking about they did not have, but she was able to get... More

Our evening began by our daughter being sprayed by the hostess who was wiping down the table behind us, as she sprayed cleaner and it hit our daughter's head. Next, we had just received our cocktails when there was a loud noise and a fire extinguisher was knocked off of the wall at a station behind our table. Somehow smoke... More

J Alexander's is a chain restaurant that is on our business dinner rotation about once every three weeks. Service has always been excellent. Reservations are recommended at busy times. The bar area is expansive, and the dining area is open with ample room. I usually have steak, but the menu has a varied selection for everyone. The signature carrot cake... More

Rachael was our server and we enjoyed her immensely. Knowledgeable, polite, timely. Just a pleasure ! We had the filet mignon and it was perfect. We love the flavor. My big disappointment ? I can't get a Stella or a Heineken ! I'm not into spending $7 or $8 dollars for a craft beer I may like. They use to... More
