“Fancy, but I found the food a little bland”
Reviewed 17 February 2012

There is a good range of prices of entrees from about $12 to $31. They have steaks and seafood. The fries looked good (as they went by) and the mashed potato was very good, but the helpings were enormous. I had the Pork Loin. I was disappointed; the meat was cooked rather dry and the sauce was a bit spicy - too much variation for me. The service was excellent!
Parking is not problem - they have their own lot and I enjoyed the view of the little "lake" as we exited the restaurant.

“The prime rib is consistently excellent”
Reviewed 11 February 2012

My wife and I have had dinner here several times in the last few years. J Alexander's is one of our favorite steak restaurants in the Western Suburbs. The prime rib is consistently excellent.

We highly recommend J Alexander's.

“Fine for dinner”
Reviewed 4 February 2012

Our group learned not to be tardy, as we had to wait quite a while to be seated when a coworker was delayed and the restaurant said they could not seat us.
The bar made some extra money from us during the wait, but we were pleased with the wait staff at the bar who were friendly and quick with service.
The restaurant is a bit on the dark side, but not a big deal.
The wait staff at dinner was helpful and attentive.
We all liked our food.
Due to group they added on 18.5% gratuity.
