Traveling solo, I like a good meal served quickly. While not needing a reservation, I made one, and was in and out in about 30 minutes. Fast, but the food was very good. The steak was marinated in a very tasty sauce and cooked to my medium-rare request. I really enjoyed the meal and will return when I am in... More

Had reservations at 8:30 and arrived early. Able to get two seats at the bar and decided to eat there. Bartender was excellent about getting us two seats. Made sure no one else took the seats from the two people leaving so we could sit there. Ordered the grilled artichoke hearts for an appetizer. Came quickly. They were good, but... More

Best prime rib I've ever had! Romantic atmosphere for upscale date. Pricey, but worth the splurge. Perfect lemon drop martini. Next time I'm ordering a side of macaroni and cheese. Theirs has a unique flavor that is quite addictive. The menu has a variety of dishes to please all pallets- salads, pastas, beef, pork, etc. $$$

We left concert and called ahead for seating. We had visited a J. Alexander's restaurant in Birmingham and remembered it was really good. When we arrived, the restaurant was very busy but due to our call ahead, we were able to get a table in about 15 minutes. The service was great and the food was excellent. You could cut... More

Great food! Great service! We always go mid-afternoon on Saturday when it's not so busy. It's a little more quiet and relaxing. The "Not your ordinary Mac and Cheese" is delicious.

We had a delightful dining experience. Heidi-B, our Server, provided excellent service. From suggesting an appetizer to describing the food preparation. Definitely going to ask for on our next visit. The calamari was outstanding, among the best we have across the country. For an entree my wife had the Fish Taco made with Haddock and the presentation was as appealing... More

Great food, very tasty. The portion were VERY large. I had the trout which was very tasty, with cole slaw for 4 and rice for 2. The chocolate cake could easily feed 3. Great service too.

I liked J. Alexander's better before they became Red Lands Grill. Before their selections of steaks was more to our liking!! The "only" rib-eye they have now is Steak Maui which is marinated in a somewhat sweet sauce!! Yuk! More variety, please on the steaks!! But, if you're not looking for rib-eyes, they have a great variety of different dishes.... More
