J. Alexander's has become our favorite restaurant. The food is ALWAYS good, the service is ALWAYS impeccable, and it is totally consistent. We have never had a bad meal here -- my husband says it's the best hamburger he's had and they always cook it to perfection. The cilantro shrimp is excellent and they really know how to prepare spaghetti... More

Admittedly I'm a J.A. fan and have been to the one in Chattanooga many times. My first time to visit the one in Cool Springs and it was amazing. We sat in the solarium room with the gas fireplace. It was bright and inviting, not dark like the rest of the restaurant. I got the white bean soup of the... More

We had already had large festivities over the weekend to celebrate our anniversary but wanted somewhere to go for dinner on the official date (which was a Tuesday). Somewhere not too over-the-top expensive (otherwise, it would have been Etch) but still dependably good with good drinks-- J Alexander's it is! It's always a safe bet when you don't want to... More

Met a friend for dinner and had an absolutely fantastic experience. We decided to have the crab cakes as our appetizer which was a good move. I have to admit, they are quite possibly be the best I've had in my memory. I had the ahi tuna salad for my main dish which was perfectly cooked. We shared a bowl... More

Great food and great location, near the Franklin theater. That's a great movie place, adult drinks, food, pizza and fun.

J. Alexander's can be counted on to always deliver a consistently delicious meal. Service is always top notch, food exceptional, and a wonderful wine selection. If you are hungry for a dining experience that is a step up from the norm, but won't break the bank, count on J Alex for consistency in service, taste and experience!

J Alexanders is always at the top of our list. It is also a favorite of mine to take clients for lunch. They have the best Ahi Tuna salad I have eaten anywhere. Tuna seared perfectly with a flavorful oriental dressing and wasabi to compliment.

First experience here and it was worth every bite! I enjoyed the chicken salad sandwich and the wild rice with orzo. Amazing!!! So delicious! The family member with me enjoyed the fish tacos--said "best I've ever had!" Definitely recommend this place! The fireplace gives it a warm ambiance. Waitress Samantha was very attentive. She filled our water glasses practically every... More

My first time at J.Alexanders, and in Franklin! I was traveling alone on business, and was ready for dinner. My stomach was still on EST, so I was ready to eat at 5:30pm! I walked in to a bustling lobby. I guess the good people of Franklin also like to eat dinner at 5:30! Two hostesses were at the stand,... More
