We have waited approximately 17 years to return to eat at J. Alexander's. Well, worth the wait. Exquisite food, outstanding service, interaction with manager delightful. We have suggested J. Alexander's to many traveling friends. No fears of them ever being dissappointed. We look forward to returning sooner than another 17 years.

We were there for our anniversary but it was Father's Day so the place was rocking. The food was very good as usual and the meal was nicely paced despite the large crowd. Nice touch -- our waitress quietly but emphatically told us to split one dessert. It was very good advice!

Was recommended this place by a Chat local we met in a mall - very pleased they mentioned it. Smart but not fussy restaurant with a 'proper' menu, so different to the beige grease available in most American eateries. Had excellent squid starter, crab cake main course, friend had artichokes with dip which was a great find in the menu. Mojito at the bar was a bit average but everything else was really fresh, tasty and a bit of a joy after 4 days of Tennessee deep friedness.

We drive almost an hour and a half to eat at J Alexander's for special occasions and sometime.....just because we LOVE it. The food is always delicious. The service is always impeccable and the carrot cake is worth everything! We have brought all of our adult children as well as our grandchildren and they love it as well! We tell everyone, who will listen, about "our favorite place!"

All was good,until near end of meal.A large party was seated next to us for 10-12 . Evidently,there was more people than table spots.The one person moved very close to our table.One of our guest had to slide all way across to get out.Not a big deal,however when you spend a lot.I feel waiters or mgr.should have handled.

Service was excellent, the noise level was a little high and heard to hear and talk over. Overall, the food was great, but the sauces that were applied were hit or miss with a few in our party of 8.

Our server, Nathan, was excellent! We were originally seated in another server's section, but we preferred a booth. He got permission from the other server to remain with us. He recommended some great beverages from the bar and was very attentive. He made the experience that much better. Our appetizer, salmon dip, and NY strip entrees and side dishes were good. All in all, we had a great dining experience.

Great food, salad was outstanding. Bleu Cheese dressing is the best that I have ever eaten.
My wife and I went Tuesday evening for anniversary
Since it was for our 36th anniversary I had requested a more than normally private table. The person I spoke with by phone suggested the raised area. I was familiar with that part of the restaurant and thought that would be great, so he said he would make a note of it; however, when we arrived about 5 minutes early for our 6:45 reservation, we were seated in the main floor area of the restaurant. I was kind of disappointed that the gentleman either didn't make a note as he said or the hostess didn't check. I chose not to say anything not wanting to put a damper on the evening for my wife. Our server did a great job and the food as usual was excellent.
The carrot cake is fantastic. We love this place always good food and service. My husband gets the prime rib every time and it is always perfect.
The food, service & atmosphere were excellent!
We had the trout and it was a great value for the amount of food served. The carrot cake is the best ever!

My wife & I were celebrating our wedding anniversary and picked Alexander's on line due in large part to their menu. We had never been in Chattanooga before so it was an unknown quantity. The noise level was high when we entered. We were seated promptly at an upper level corner table and I did not notice the noise being too distracting from then on. Both the service and food were excellent from the soup through desert. Our waiter was attentive without being obtrusive and was able to describe the menu. Overall it was a quite pleasurable dining experience.

Michael, the manager, went over the top to accommodate us and take care of our group for the birthday girl. We felt like he truly cared about our experience and was so kind!

Last time I wrote a review, I was not happy about the service. This time the service was top notch! This is what we have come to expect when we come here. The food is outstanding. We had our usual grilled artichokes. I highly recommend trying these as they are the best I have had anywhere. I had the amberjack which was cooked to perfection. They always seem to cook fish to just the right texture for my taste. This is one of our favorite places, and we highly recommend trying it!
What an evening!
Everyone there went out of their way to make us feel special. We went to celebrate our 34th anniversary, and we will be back. Special thanks to the Manager Andrew, Randy and Peyton. They welcomed us by name and treated us like the only customer they had. Thank you for a memorable evening!

It was Mothers Day so was very crowded. The orzo side dish was fabulous as always. I ordered a ribeye and it was very tough. The manager did offer to get another one for me, which I declined. so he removed it from our bill.

Server was Spectacular and food was fantastic
The server was the best ever in my life, and i have quite a bit of eating out experience. The appetizer Smoked Salmon Dip came out fast and was very tasty. Not a hint of fishy just delicious sea aromas, and very light and subtle. Dinner course came out right on time. Meat was prepared to the perfect temperature and was well seasoned. Dessert was a decadent carrot cake. Warm and not overly sweet. We have been to this restaurant before and enjoyed it but they were on top of their game that Saturday night.
We are never disappointed with our meals at J Alexander's. The internet booking option worked great for us. We made our reservation online and our table was ready when we arrived. Great service. Great food. Consistent quality.

Food and service was exceptional. Would highly recommend.
We eat at J Alexander's whenever we are in Chattanooga. It is consistently great food and a great value. Service is always good.
Not worth the money
Loud like a cafeteria, Food not worth the money, I've had a lot better for a lot less. Its supposed to be fine dining (shorts and hats shouldn't be allowed). Only ordered dinner and it took forever, wasn't busy at all. Should give you some type of bread/rolls. Only seen our waitress 3 times throughout the night, she took my order, asked about dessert and gave us the check.
