    I've been going to J. Alexander's for 20 years. Whenever the food or service gets stale, they renovate. It's a great American staple and you can't go wrong with anything on the menu.

    Awesome food and service. My only complaint is we always make reservations and every time we have to wait 20-30 minutes still. What's the point of taking reservations then?

    We have not been here in a while for dinner since I was not happy with the Prime Rib the last two times. Gave it another try and it was excellent!! They have been put back on the return to list.

    Great food and service. My faves include - Queso, Fish Tacos, Grilled Artichokes, Rattlesnake Pasta, Tortilla Soup, all the steaks are fabulous. The Pomegranate Martini is amazing.

    Ask for Megan. Excellent service, funny and hot. The place smells a little like a petting zoo but the food is great.

    Wine tip : order a glass of The Prisoner listed under Zinfandel. Not too many places serve this great wine.

    Biggest mound of fries I've ever seen! Also, definitely always order the Mac n Cheese. Creamy deliciousness.

    You have to purchase gift cards at the crowded bar. Why can't I buy them at the hosting table?

    Times must be hard for this place. Beware of annoyingly persistent upselling.
