This was our 3rd or 4th time here... we try it now and again when we're at Town Center. In the past, there's been some issues, but tonight was the straw that broke this camel's (hungry) back. The restaurant was out of tuna. Scratch off everything with tuna in it, which is quite a few dishes actually. They were also out of prime rib (eh, not a big deal to me). Service was slow. I asked for a lemonade and got a sideways look... turns out the bar has to make it, and I guess my request was a bother for the bar staff. I ordered a medium filet and it was medium rare at best... after being recooked it was not to temp but wasn't as bloody. A friend with us ordered a salad and didn't receive it until about 15 minutes after the steaks arrived. We won't dine here again.

Had to send cocktail back - was not what I ordered. Ordered prime rib rare and it was served medium. J. Alexanders is much better for lunch. Salads, sandwiches and burgers are good. I have never experienced a good dinner entree.

The food was really good but it was my anniversary and I felt like we were rushed in and out. It would've been nice to just have a moment to relax. Fast service is expected at a fast food restaurant, Not a place that charges $30 a plate. As soon as they noticed I wasn't eating anymore they offered a box and then the check...

Overall great experience... the only negatives was a menu option was recommended on the daily special only to be told they were out of it once I ordered and this was after two people mentioned the daily special, and I called twice to inform the hostess I was bringing my husband for his birthday and asked if they could do a dessert with a candle I was assured twice they would acknowledge his birthday and they didn't....The food is great but I would advise don't go when they're busy or for a special occasion.

Wednesday is $5 martini day. Definitely be sure to take advantage of this. Their martini comes with a sidecar which is basically a second drink.
The appetizers were exceptional as well as the entrees. Terrific food, excellent service and a great looking place. For an exceptional meal with service that is beyond compare, this is the place to go.

Lovely restaurant. Very noisy though. Our wine bottle arrived hot and it never chilled so had to be replaced. We didn't get our first glass of wine until after our meal arrived. Wasn't able to enjoy it so we had it corked to take home. The steak was fine but potato was cold and undercooked. I didn't complain because I'd already had to request that the wine bottle be chilled. The meal did not come with any bread or additional sides. Mediocre dinner for two was 122.00. Very disappointing birthday. Should have gone to the Capital Grill instead.

Due to the heat here in Jacksonville, this place was extremely hot internally. Once the sun went down and the door traffic slowed, we were able to enjoy a great night there. I enjoyed the NY Strip and became a member of the wine club. This place will always be considered a classy, classic scene.

Everything was very nice, as always. I do have one issue. I've been coming to J. Alexander's since you opened your doors. I always order the prime rib because, I believe it's the best in town. Lately, however, I've noticed that your your portion has been schrinking. Since there is a good bit of fat that comes with the prime rib, for the price, I should be receiving more.

Visited on 7/19 for my husband's birthday. The service was very good as usual. It was a Tuesday, so not really crowded. Very enjoyable and the food was fantastic. I had the pork tenderloin and he had the filet. Very large portions, so plenty to take home and enjoy another day. Absolutely a great place to dine for any occassion or for no reason at all.

Don't expect any special treatment for your special occasion. I noted in my reservation that we were celebrating a birthday. Did anyone say "happy birthday"; did they decorate the table; did the waiters sign a card; did they offer to take a picture or provide a birthday dessert??? The answer is a resounding no, No, NO. There was absolutely NO recognition of anything I put in my reservation request. Next birthday, I'm heading back to Ruth's Chris or Roy's or Eleven South where they know how to make a birthday special.

Since I've lived in Jacksonville, the number one recommended steak house was J Alexander. We decided to wait until something special came along to go. We decided our 33rd Anniversary was just that occasion. The staff and customer service was really good. The food, on the other hand, was way below our expectations. I ordered a medium steak, I got well done and tough. My wife ordered the steak maui, which was covered in teriyaki sauce, but no very good. I also had the mac and cheese with my steak. I couldn't eat two bites of this. It was in a thick sauce that had no flavor at all. Totally disappointed and doubt we would ever go back.

From the time we walked in the door, until the time we left, I was amazed! The ambiance, the friendliness of the staff, even down to getting a drink I ordered that was not on their menu, just AWESOME!! Our server, Sarah, was so knowledgeable of the restaurant, very nice and she gave recommendations that blew me and my husband away. The food, more than I could imagine, so delicious! My husband had the Cajun Trout and I had the Carolina Crab Cakes, it did not disappoint. We were celebrating our 16yr. wedding anniversary and it couldn't have been a better experience! It was my first time there, but it won't be my last. Extraordinary service J. Alexander's!!!!

We have eaten at JA's in Chattanooga and Atlanta but recently moved to JAX and decided to try this location. The food is very good at this location with excellent service. The day we dined there were several nice specials and as always...the carrot cake was outstanding! I miss the chicken salad as a regular menu item but glad to know that it is a lunch special.

The food was expensive and a small quantity.
We had the shrimp and frankly they were small for $23.00.
Also, the food wasn't very tasty.
The waitress was not the most pleasant either.
The ambiance was perfect for the occasion.
