Probably one of the most favorite restaurants John and I like to go to is J. Alexander's. They have a fairly simple menu, but pretty much anything you order is guaranteed to be good. John's favorite is the ribs - very tasty, tender, and fall-off-the-bone good! My favorite is the crab cakes.
Pictured here is the crab cake appetizer, but if you get the meal, you get two crab cakes and a side.
These are probably some of the best crab cakes I've ever had. They are quite thick with a little bit of spice, and the sauce is so good!
But probably the best thing to get at J. Alexander's is their croissants! John and I love them so much and we always request them as soon as we sit down (for some reason, they don't bring them to your table unless you ask for them - so make sure you do the next time you're in!)
They come out tasting super fresh and warm, with just the slightest hint of sweetness.
