I have visited J. Alexander's on many occasions but this visit may well be my last. Our party of five, had to send soup back because it was not hot. French fries were so salty they were sent back for a fresh batch the twice baked potato was over salted and sent back. But the worst part was the $33.00... More

The menu is good, the meat was very tasty. The place is big and nicely decorated. The service was very good and quick. Nice place to go for a business lunch or dinner.

We had a reservation and they seated us as soon as we got there. My husband ordered prime rib and it was the best he'd had in years -- very tender and cooked just the way he'd ordered it. I had the special, which was sauteed fish with a light sauce, and it was very mild, not greasy and tasted... More

I enjoyed our time in this restaurant, though the service was slow, and it wasn't a particularly busy evening. The food is good, and the servers friendly.

We moved to Nashville almost 20 years ago. This restaurant quickly became a favorite and a staple for me and my family. My oldest son actually worked here as a server right out of high school. They take great pride in their menu and even where they buy their foods from. I'm a salmon fan and they've always prepared the... More

Landed at the Nashville airport and headed to Franklin to my hotel on a recent Friday evening with some coworkers. We checked TripAdvisor for dinner options and chose J Alexander's based on reviews. We arrived around 6:30 PM with no reservation and there was quite a crowd. We were told there would be a 45 minute wait but since we... More

This is a top notch suburban restaurant. Excellent menu, although I passed on the rattlesnake pasta. Great atmosphere. Well trained wait staff. I especially appreciated the fact that they honored my reservation time to the minute despite the fact they had a lobby full of people waiting to get seated sans reservations.

Thank Lynn M
