J. Alexander's - Chattanooga Ratings and Reviews
The service at J. Alexander's is always ...
The service at J. Alexander's is always very attentive-in fact, it was leaning toward too much on this particular evening. The food is consistently good. I had baked chicken, which was savory and the portion was quite generous. My colleague had the fried chicken and was in heaven (he's from Europe and apparently they don't fry as well as we do!) The only real drawback is how loud it becomes. For some reason people shout in this restaurant more than any other I can think of. Once people get a couple of drinks in them it's quite loud. Nevertheless, I enjoyed my dinner and they always try to make it a nice evening.

I always enjoy traveling through Chattanooga when I can stop at J. Alexanders.
It is an awesome place. I have always had great experiences here. If you have a chance try the dessert called the Powerful Stuff it is the stuff of dreams.

J. Alexander's has gone down since our last visit. The food is still decent, but only that, and the service was not good. The cocktails had pitifully short pours, and the menu descriptions did not match what was served. You can do much better than J. Alexander's in Chattanooga.

I heard rave reviews about the restaurant. I was totally disappointed. The food was terrible, and there was a very slim selection for entrees on the menu. I will not be recommending this place to friends nor will I visit this establishment again. Service was great, ambience was very nice. I was on a first date and had to conversate over a child being loud.

Service was great. Food was horrible. Most bland steaks that my wife and I have ever had. I learned a valuable lesson that just because something is expensive, it doesn't mean that it's better than a cheaper meal. I've had better food from my local Cracker Barrel. Definitely will not be eating here again.

This has been our "go to" spot for quite a few years because the food and service is consistently good and the atmosphere is nice but not over done. Favorites are the Alex's salad, the seared ahi salad, rattlesnake pasta, blackened trout, and when one wants to be really bad, the prime rib. Unfortunately, inflation seems to have reared its ugly head as prices are up in the last few months on some of these items by as much as 20% so we may less frequent visitors in the future.

The food was prepared wonderfully. The environment was very clean and waiters/waitresses were very knowledgeable about the menu. They really paid close attention to our needs and were very accommodating to our parties needs.

Had a great time catching up with a friend. Food is good as always. Brian is the most amazing server ever. It's rare I have to ask for anything as he is always so on top of things. So glad we were able to get in to sit with him.

Dinner for my 30th B-Day was great. The restaurant had a interesting menu, wonderful meal that was perfectly served by our waiter, who also filled us in on the local community. Hot food and oh so good. All in all, It was perfect I will recommend a lot of people to this restaurant it was awesome!

I love J Alexander's! It has been my favorite restaurant for many years considering that I worked there for 6 years I know how clean their kitchen is, how well they prep their food they really go above and beyond!! Very clean, great food, awesome service, and consistent EVERY TIME!

I get to eat there often, it is a 2 1/2 hour drive for me but if I'm going to be in Chattanooga I eat there. I didn't have it this trip but their Spinach Queso is excellent! This trip I had the Alex Salad (no tomatoes or cucumber) with salmon. It came out perfect and I especially appreciated the salmon wasn't on top of the cheese to melt it! My only complaint, I only got 3 of the wonderful croutons!
Entrees arrived much too soon, before we ...
Entrees arrived much too soon, before we could make it halfway through the appetizer. I had the marinated ribeye, but wasn't a fan. However, my wife had the filet and said it was really good. Large birthday party complete with a loud rendition of "Happy Birthday" interrupted the evening. The waiter did apologize, which was nice. The chocolate cake was massive and delicious.

Excellent Ribeye, cold drinks, sultry chocolate cake and very professional wait staff. I was prepared for expensive but it still seemed high. Although the steak was amazing so I was still very satisfied. I could not afford to go back so I am glad I went for the steak special while I was there.

J. Alexander's was my favorite for such a long time. Menu changes, price increase with a food value decrease has damaged what once was a great place. Pollock for grilled fish tacos was bad, fishy and not in a good way. Great if you like cabbage. Shrimp were much better.

Jonathan my server was very attentive to my needs and his service was great. The manager Andrew stopped by our table before and after our meal that is impressive to me. Other places do not have that attention to detail but J Alexenders does perfect 10 out of 10. Love this place.

The service is top-notch! Brian always takes great care of us going above and beyond. Jay, Thomas, Nick and Carley are favorites as well. We dine at J Alexander's at least once a week as the food is great as well.

We had a blast dining with your restaurant this past Friday evening. We were celebrating my Mom's 60th birthday. My husband planned it and I executed his idea. She completely and pleasantly surprised and it was worth the hard work! Everything was wonderful! The service was outstanding, our servers were on top of everything throughout the entire evening. The food excellent and came out in a very timely manner. The atmosphere in general was so warm and comfortable. Also, having the manager pay our family so much attention was awesome! Everything that transpired on that very special evening was perfect! I want to personally thank J's for the stand up service that my family received.
