J Alexanders is well known for their specialty Prime Rib and quality cocktails. I go especially for the Salmon dip appetizer and their Carolina Crab Cakes that are fabulous. A great white wine for these dinners that I have found only at J Alexander is "Schloss Vollrads". You can also find this wine in stores. Recommend reservations.

J Alexander's is regular and probably favorite restaurant for us in the Chattanooga area. Great food, (have never had a dish I wouldn't order again) great atmosphere, and great wait staff. After our lunch experience yesterday, i felt I needed to finally write a review and give full possible thumbs up! Had one of the best cuts of prime rib ever, done to perfection. My wife consistently orders the The vegeburger. Made in house and the best! The rest of our group's choices also were raved over. On top of that, we have to give Kudos to Manny our waiter. He was impressive in his attention, to us detail oriented, very courteous, genuine explanations and conversation. Never felt like he was giving any party lines. True professional. Overall JA gives each patron a consistently great experience. Highly recommend it if you haven't tried it.

We dined here as a family for a birthday celebration. The menu seemed to be somewhat limited but choices were quite good. The waitstaff was very attentive and no one seemed to be able to walk past without refilling a water glass or bringing another glass of tea or soda.

Looking for a nice place to take the family and reading the reviews this seemed like the place, and I wasn't disappointed. Made our reservation through the link here and were we seated promptly. Nice atmosphere and energy in the dining area. The service was very good, drink orders in and then the meal. Everything was paced nicely with multiple servers insuring we had no issues. A couple of appetizers came and they were very good. One was the steak one, which was like a mini cheese steak and was very filling and delicious. The other was the salmon dip which was excellent with a bit of sneaky heat to it, probably cayenne. Entries included the steak special of Tuscan Steak and was excellent. Other entries included ribs, and steaks. Everything cooked perfectly and to order. Finally, had read here about the carrot cake and while no one had any room left, we all had doggy bags, we ordered it anyway. It was a large piece, very warm, with a generous portion of icing drizzled on top, melting decadently into the cake. It was so moist and flavorful, the best carrot cake ever. If you are in the area you will not be disappointed.

Stopped in for a meal prior to flying back home. Was just looking for a decent steak and something to drink. What I got was an incredible Filet! The waiter was great and the atomshpere was really nice, not to loud.
