I am always surprised at the difference of opinions regarding restaraunts. J Alexanders has been a favorite of mine for a while. I have always experienced impeccable service and the food has always been of great quality. Ambience is one of a relaxing nature. I will be back many, many times.

I went here for lunch with a large group.

The restaurant looked very nice inside.

I had a Bacon Swiss Burger. The burger was excellent; one of the best I’ve had in San Antonio.

I did not care for the fries that came with it. They were very thin.

The wait staff was very friendly and attentive.

The prices are very high. Too high for me to go there more than once every few years. (If that even.)

The burger was $12! Geesh.

Definitely not your mom's mac and cheese!

We've been here several times and with one exception, I always leave happy! The steaks are juicy, the ""not so ordinary"" macaroni and cheese is OUT OF THIS WORLD! The lighting and interior is very condusive(sp) to an intimate evening environment. Worth the waitlist.

Overpriced & Limited

We dined on a Wed late evening, restaurant was half full at the time with a party of at least 6 adults & 4 kids that took up any free standing tables. Of course we got stuck w/a booth (hate that) which comprises most of the restaurants seating. Make that a dark 'n dank booth. Due to the limited offerings under $15 my date ended up drinking her dinner. I ordered the fresh cut fish sandwich for an overpriced $15, wait, it did come w/fries although its the shoestring variety that reminds me of the ""pik nik"" pop open cans from way back. The server informed me of the fish selection, it would be salmon or flounder. Well who wants a salmon sandwich? When my flounder sandwich arrived open faced it was about a 4oz piece on a 6oz bun, very small, barely fried & not fresh tasting. The server did offer to replace it w/something else but we just wanted out of this disappointing restaurant. Never again!

We just tried j alexanders for the first time tonight- because a few friends had reccomended it and we will not be returning! My hubby ordered the maui steak a marinated steak and asked for medium and it was WELL-actually way well done..i got the rotisserie cobb salad and the avacado was black in spots, the chicken tasted old, the salad was a little wilted, it was just disgusting. Totally over priced for the quality of the food. Portions are large but i prefer quality over quantity!!

Must Try Croissants! Hearty Meal!

I am a frequent diner of J. Alexanders, and their Croissants are just to die for! Just ask for a basket(3pcs) if you didn't see it on menu. I do agree of previous review of it might not be the best place to bring infants or young child to, however i did sat w/some well behave toddlers during a sunny afternoon in their patio. guess it just denpends on how good your child behave.
Given it's atomsphere and hearty portion of food, the price is pretty reasonable. Although i did got an uncooked salmon once, the manager certainly took good care of it...unlike other famous chain my other reiviews if you r interest.
Over all I do encourage you to pay them a visit when you have a chance to hang around The Quarry.

Great Food, Great Martini's, Mashed Potatos by the Truckload

This place hits on all of the Big 3: Steaks, Salads and Seafood. They grill very well at this place and the menu is different from most of the usual restaurant suspects. Be warned though, the individual servings of mashed potatos are what the rest of the world regards as a Family Style Portion. This is a place where you absolutely do order the before dinner Martini and you absolutely do not order chicken fingers. It's also an elegant setting with good service.

Best food, Just OK Service

Just as the Title says, the food at J. Alexander's is the absolute best in town. No other restaurant in San Antonio can compare. As far as the service goes, it is hit or miss with their service staff. I have had outstanding service, and I have had service there that makes me wonder how they can ever stay in buisness. Overall it is a nice restaurant. It's the kind of restaurant that I would take a date or a buisness client to.

Too small portions

Overpriced, over $13.00 for a small piece of Red fish and mashed potatoes. Nothing else comes with the small meal. No salad, no anything else. We will not be returning.
