This location is now a Redlands Grill brand of J Alexander's. The decor is perfect, the artwork inside is stunning, the menu is outstanding, and the service is professional. My family always enjoys dining here. The portions are more than bountiful, always made to order, and with the best ingredients available. Prices are more than fair (you get what you... More

We enjoyed good food and good service at this restaurant. The menu has some unique and plentiful selections and they were happy to make suggestions about adapting a dish for a low sodium restriction. It was delicious. I'm sorry we didn't have room for dessert and look forward to another dinner there sometime soon.

When I stay in Hoover I always dine at J Alexander's or dinner. I love the text message system for table reservations. It gives you time at the bar to have meaningful conversation. The bar is always busy but they do an excellent job of working you in for a drink while you wait on your table. Several times I... More

We stopped to eat lunch here. I ordered the devil eggs and that was some of the best eggs I've eaten. The ribs were great. The waitress was very attentive to the table. We never ran out of drink or want for anything. On departing the waitress made sure we each had an ice tea to go. Great place to... More

We had a very nice evening meal there. Plates are big. The salad as a starter was already a meal... Local beer is very good but also very strong, 9.2 degrees, we appreciate that we came on foot!!

We had high hopes. Previous visits were superb, but menu has changed and was not as varied. My husband ordered the Steak Maui and it was practically burned when you ask for medium on the well side. My Israeli Coucous and Redlands Salad with cilantro vinaigrette were very tasty. I originally ordered the Ahi Tuna and they were out as... More

This place was recommended to us by a local and we were not disappointed. We had fried shrimp, slaw and fries. The shrimp were huge and delicious. Sides were great and service was spot on. The restaurant was a little dark but all in all a definite 5 stars.
