Had a business lunch here and thoroughly enjoyed the food. We both had the swordfish special and liked it. Salads, burgers and so much more looked fantastic. The staff is friendly and attentive.

I arrived early for a lunch meeting with two people I had never met in person. I told the front desk who I was supposed to meet, she said no one by that name had arrived. I waited for almost 30 minutes before the person I was waiting for came up to the desk from the back of the restaurant... More

I had lunch at J Alexander's (Redlands Grill) in Tampa during a recent business trip. The colleagues from the Tampa office recommended it, so we decided to try it before flying out. A colleague and I arrived before the others, and were told we had to wait for the rest of our party in order to be seated. I know... More

We had very late lunch/very early dinner at the bar on a beautiful spring day. The kind of day when everyone is outside and not many at that hour were in the building at J. Alexander's. J. Alexander's always has good food, good menu, and not overly high pricing for its level. They also have very consistently high service. Love... More

Service was extremely good. Food was very good but pricey. Menu has been the same for some time. Could use some updating. Still I would recommend highly.

Went to dinner here with a group of coworkers and we all enjoyed our dinners immensely. The steaks are phenominal, as are the appetizers and salads.

We were visiting the area and unable to get reservations for our first choice restaurant. So glad we found J. Alexander's (now called Redlands Grill). The food was delicious. The service was great. The atmosphere was good. A bit loud, but you could catch an occasional sound of the jazz being played over the sound system. Make sure you try... More

If you go, you must try the prime rib. It is delicious, but costly. The menu in general is expensive. It's up to each individual to decide whether the dishes are worth the price. Two for dinner with wine and dessert will run $100.
