Devon Seafood + Steak - Oakbrook Terrace
Wonderful service, great atmosphereWonderful service, great atmosphere and excellent food!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMYum!We recently ate here for lunch and we really happy with it. We will for sure be back for lunch and we're going to try it out for dinner too. My wife and I both had their fish tacos and they were delicious. They had a nice and slightly spicy marinade but what we liked the most was the smokey taste from the wood fired grill. Great job to the kitchen. We also had excellent service and thought the atomsphere was really nice too.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMI have watched this restaurantI have watched this restaurant evolve and believe it has hit a very good stride. The pretzel crusted trout was probably the best dish I have experienced. Very well done and recommended by my waiter "G" who provided superb service as well as a very honest opinion. I am looking forward to my next visit.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day Family CelebrationWe were a party of 11 people. They all thought the restaurant was great. Everyone enjoyed the food and pleasant atmosphere. Service was excellent. We all agreed on the friendliness of the waitress's and waiters. Not one complaint from any of us. We will defintely be back. Thank You5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and presentationThe food and presentation were exceptional. I was surprised by the general increase in prces of entrees in comparison to the last time I visited Braxton's but all in all I would still highly recommend this retaurant!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSunday BrunchMother's Day Brunch was terrific! The food selection was wonderful and everything was delicious. Loved the waffles - smaller size perfect for brunch when so many other options available to try. Seafood table outstanding as was carving station. We'll definitely be back!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFresh fish!Delicious fresh fish, served in a variety of different ways. Lobster bisque is great! They do have other stuff besides fish also. Great service and there is a small outdoor area with a fireplace. Yummie biscuits that they keep bringing to you. It's one of our favorite places to go. It was packed for Mother's Day.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Brunch for the priceBeen to Devons in the city and loved it. Decided to try the one in Oak Brook for Mother's Day brunch. For the price it's a great value, although it would have been nice if Champagne would have been included/ Was expecting a larger spread and more sea food, but for the price I can't complain and it was an excellent value,5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI will be backI enjoy myself the food was good and I love the bread ,the waiter she was outstanding and yes I would recommend it to friend or a family member.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNever Dissapoints. Fantastic!!Food was excellent! I have been eating at Devon/Braxton for a long time now. I always come for the gumbo and lately I have been ordering the Seared Ahi Tuna. The tuna is cooked perfectly and pairs well with the potatoes and asparagus. I almost ordered one to go. This is my new favorite dish as I clean the plate every time.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, service and atmosphere.We were seated promptly however the table we were seated at was a cramped corner which was a bit unccomfortable however the service made up for it. The overall food experience was very good. The appetizers were good but the Asian rolls were a bit dried out but tasty. The entree's were presented well, the crab cakes were wonderful as well as the ahi tuna. In my opinion I would suggest linen table clothes on the tables, this would enhance the ambiance greatly.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat MealOur family of four had a very good dining experience. Our kids are picky eaters, but the waiter even made on the spot recomendations for each of our kids as to what they'd like from the kids menu. I might go back to have the chicken fingers myself, they were great; the waiter said the staff orders it for themselves all the time. My wife and I each had simple grilled fish and two sides. I thought the lobster mac n cheese (pluse $3) was just ok, hardly any cheese or not a lot of lobster either. Everything else was really good. Save room for the carrot cake after dinner, it's awesome. The kids got homemade ice cream and again, I'd seriously consider stopping in just for the chocolate, it was fantastic.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMTastyThe food is very tasty there. The quantity can be a little more but overall it was great.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways delicious!I've been going to Devon since they opened. They used to be Braxton in Oak Brook I would go there often to celebrate my birthdays there when ever I could. The food is outstanding. All the fish is flown in fresh daily and you can taste it - it's the best I've ever had in the suburbs. Try it. You'll be back.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMDevon Seafood - A Real GemFormerly Braxton Seafood in Oakbrook for over 25 years, they have kept the tradition of fabulous food at a fair price, not only including seafood but some of the best and one of the most unique dishes - Mesquite Grilled Chicken - half de-boned chicken, seasoned and grilled to perfection! I have never been disappointed in Braxton/Devon in well over 100 visits over the years.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat fish, robust menu, niceGreat fish, robust menu, nice value. Busier than I expected it to be which was good news - hope it makes it in that location.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSeafood!!!!Great seafood!!! It's hard to get really fresh seafood in the Midwest. But this place delivers :)5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service and food was excellent.The service and food was excellent. Both the seafood and the steak. Would go again and recoomend to friends.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome ExperienceI took my husband for his birthday and when we sat down and the first thing the waitress said was “Happy Birthday.” When I made the reservation Devon Seafood & Steak really paid attention to everything I put on my request for that night. They treated us like royalty. The service was outstanding and the waitress recommendations were perfect. The food was absolutely wonderful. We hadn't been there since it changed from Braxton to Devon; but I have to say they have really stepped their game up at Devon Seafood & Steak and you will be seeing a lot more of us.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMLike my first experience at Devon.Wait staff and management was very friendly and efficient. Plenty of fresh fish choices. Food was excellently prepared to our likings. Enjoyed the experience.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMA family favoriteDevon used to be Braxton Sea Food in Oak Brook Mall. They closed, moved, and opened under the name Devon. This has been a family favorite of ours for years! The food is always great, and the service never disappoints. This time we were in a group of four. We had crab cakes and calamari for appetizers. Both were great, especially the crab cakes. Everyone ordered something different...scallops, salmon, swordfish, and halibut. Everyone liked their choice and said they would order it again. They have a couple new sides for the spring/summer season that were great...a lemon asparagus risotto and a mixed vegetable burgot. Overall, it was a great evening...great food, good wine, and wonderful company. This is a must try place. Enjoy!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a Staff!Maxine and Rachel are great as always. This restaurant always feels like home because it's due to the people. The food is fantastic. What a great way to start the week.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMHappy to be able to get aHappy to be able to get a reservation on short notice.

Very attentive waiter, without hovering. We'll be back.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Service, Food and DrinksWife and I first visit and truly enjoyed the food and service. Tony, waiter, was very responsive and did not have us waiting. Wife had the lobster bisque and S.F. seafood cipollini and I had oysters on half shell and surf & turf. We left full and very satisfied. I would recommend Devon Seafood + Steak and we plan going back in the near future.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMHello! The atmosphere wasHello!

Our waiter (Tony) knew the menu, helped with recommendations, was always there but not bothersome, very accommodating and efficient. We used to go to Braxton and Devon improved on Braxton, not that I thought that could happen. Food was fresh, cooked perfectly and presented well. Atmosphere is very comfortable, much nicer than the higher end steakhouses. We will definitely return when we are in town again, which is about every other month.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFood super fresh and waitFood super fresh and wait staff friendly and professional. Did enjoy lunch but menu lacked much of a choice for the Steakhouse portion of Devon.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSet in a strip mall, I wasSet in a strip mall, I was not expecting a lot but boy was I surprised. The ambiance as we walked in was welcoming, low key and low noise. The service was spot on with our waiter, Michael. The food was excellent. The evening flowed. My steak was done perfectly at medium rare. The portions were perfectly sized. My husband had a pasta that was yummy. And we shared carrot cake that was not too sweet - a perfect ending to a great meal. I wasn't even aware of any noise or other diners. Wonderful evening! I will go back.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMNice Personal TouchesWe had a table for eight and were seated in a very comfortable, private room! We didn't ask for it, but it was a wonderful touch and we enjoyed it very much. The food once again was awesome and everyone enjoyed their entrees. The crab cake appetizer was filled with lump crabmeat. We had the halibut and it was extremely good. Mine was blackened and the seasoning and tang was perfect. Martini specials were the order of the day and they too were great. We are definitely going back!! This was our fourth visit and we have never been disappointed.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent andThe food was excellent and the carrot cake is always great.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was good and fast. ServiceFood was good and fast. Service was great. The noise level was low-ish. Almost too low as we heard other wait staff talking and saying things I don't think we were supposed to hear. Parking was good.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe offerings on the brunchThe offerings on the brunch buffet are not as plentiful as others, but it is an excellent value for the very reasonable price. Rather than focusing on quantity, the emphasis is on quality. A few of the dishes are real standouts, such as the garlic shrimp and smoked fish. The service is absolutely exceptional. Waitstaff are present without being intrusive, and extremely personable. It is a joy to eat there.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food with greatWonderful food with great service. Our first time here and we'll definitely be back.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were great fans of Braxton'sWe were great fans of Braxton's in Oakbrook Shopping Center and were sad to see it close. Devon is Braxton's reincarnate with a virtually identicle menu and many of the same staff. The food is outstanding and fresh and the service very attentive. The new location is much smaller and much, much nosier. Join the birthday club and you get $25 off dinner and a free cake. Can't beat that deal.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved going to Braxton'sWe loved going to Braxton's and now we love going to Devon. Food and everything was great!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFor really fresh, well preparedFor really fresh, well prepared seafood, Devon never fails to deliver. I had the special catfish and it was the best I've ever had. Their flatbread appetizers are always wonderful. What man doesn't love the warm biscuits and honey butter? My husband eats his and mine all the time. We would recommend Devon wholeheartedly.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to have a PowerGreat place to have a Power Lunch. Enjoyed the talapia but would like to see a greater variety of fish on the lunch menu. Will be back again soon.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWill be back.Thanks for helping to make the 30th wedding anniversary a special occasion.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMTop of the CatchThis was our first visit to Devon since the old Braxton's in Oakbrook closed. Much of the menu is still the same, and the quality of food was nothing short of magnificent. The crab cakes rival the best Baltimore has to offer, and the gumbo explodes with a variety of complex flavor to suit any pallet. Three in our party ordered steaks and found them to be properly aged and cooked to perfection. Scallops were reported to be exquisite, as well. Our waiter was very helpful, though a little distracted by other patrons of the restaurant on a late supper visit on Sunday. The wine selection is quite full and bargain priced at 1/2 off on Sunday. Enjoyable fine dining at reasonable prices has returned to the Oakbrook area. $$$.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat BrunchGeat Brunch! Service was awesome. The mini waffles are to die for! Went with a group of old friends and they didn't rush us - let us talk and catch up.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
