Grilled or Fried Calamari
Marinated Skirt Steak
Love , love the food. Chicken w/ peppers “ to die for”. Couldn’t hear my friends. Please do something about the acoustics. Food is delish!
The staff was attentive without rushing us!
We had an excellent dinner here. We shared a great bottle of wine and a delicious shrimp cocktail. I ordered the chicken Marsala and my son had a fantastic steak. Our server was great. Thanks
I have to say the food was truly outstanding. I had never had a bone in Veal Para....also my wife and Seabass that was second to none , father in law had the skirt steak and he raved about it!!
Needless to say we will be back soon, our waiter was also outstanding, can not say enough!!
Love the staff, food ambiance
Very surprised. Service was fair.
Romeo made our experience awesome!
Tables were spaced out nicely and the food portions were very generous
Staff was courteous and the valet service was very fast
Look forward to eating there very soon
Our favorite Saturday night place. Food is fabulous. Drinks are delicious. Service is excellent. It’s a win win you can’t go wrong.
Food was good, not great! I thought it was way overpriced for the quality.
We love EJ’s every time. We shared a shrimp cocktail which was excellent. I had chicken Marsala and my husband had salmon. We also shared a pasta with meat sauce. Everything was outstanding. We had great service too. Thanks
Haven’t been back for a year and we missed it. Inside was spaced well apart and we never felt unease. Food and service were wonderful. They’re not cheap but if you want a really good meal you cannot go wrong
This was our first eating inside a restaurant in over a year! We were so happy to go to EJ’s! The best comfort food! We had chicken & peppers & chicken vescuvio. Absolutely delicious! Not to mention the salad, cottage fries that come w/the meal, & my favorite sautéed broccoli! We are still eating leftovers! Can’t wait to go back!
Perfect place, excellent service, great food, comfortable and safe.
The size of the chicken parmigiana was enough to have2 more complete meals at home and was really delicious.
We asked peers, “What’s the best steakhouse in the suburbs?” We were told, “That’s easy, E J’s!” Was not disappointed. Everything was amazing! Will be coming back soon! Definitely made it to my Top 5.
Everything was excellent. The servers are the best. The food is the best. Great place.
Chicken and chopped steak were wonderful. Salmon was overcooked and very plain taste and seasoning wise.
EJ’s might offer a more tasting option for salmon dishes
Our favorite restaurant on the North Shore. Boz is an incredibly personable and knowledgeable server. The food is amazing no matter what you order. Love the supper club feel and everyone you come in contact with work so hard to make your evening truly special. Love it every time!
Great food in a comfortable surrounding. Worth the drive.
Had missed dinner at EJ's since eating in their tent last October. The food and service is the best on the Northshore without a doubt. Anxious to return again now that we are fully vaccinated.
EJS keeps getting better and better each time I go! Food, service, atmosphere, everything is first rate. We had a table of 8 guys last night and had an absolute ball. Boz took fantastic care of us and made sure everything was perfect. Thank you EJS!
Considering we were in a tent wearing masks EJ's is still a 5 star spot! We had a great time!
We dined at this restaurant for my husband’s birthday and was really surprised at the service! The wait staff were very courteous and thoughtful! When I made the reservation on OpenTable, I indicated that we were celebrating a birthday but didn’t request anything, therefore, didn’t expect anything. For dessert, our waiter came out and served us a custard pie with a lit candle. It was definitely a surprise for my husband which made his birthday extra special. Thank you!!!
Requested to sit in inside when made reservation, but ended up sitting in tent.
Steak was overcooked but they seemed really busy and all other food was excellent.
Service is great just wished we ate inside. Definitely will come back, pasta and shrimp were some of the best I've ever had.
It was great to get out. Great food. Great staff.
Great to see a restaurant so vibrant and bustling with energy. Boz our server was so personable and fantastic. Made sure our 8 year olds food came right out. All the food we had was incredible. Who knew the fried shrimp would be so good! Have been many times and will continue to go back as it’s a fabulous experience and evening out.
Great dinner on one of the best places in the North Shore! Felt very safe from a Covid perspective- social distracting, entire restaurant staff took precautions that made me feel very comfortable.
I’m not sure how it can be any better? They nailed all. Food is perfect, service (Boz was our server) is incredible and professional, vast menu, and an awesome festive room. Oysters are huge, grilled calamari is the best I’ve ever eaten, perfectly cooked Dover Sole and my first time trying the unbelievably delicious skirt steak. It’s obvious why they are so busy. We will return!
Put in a dark and cold tent. Menu is limited to sides. I ordered my filet medium, it arrived well done. Sent it back, the next steak was rare. Waiter apologized, but for $60 you should be able to get the temperature on the steak correct. Waiter bought me a beer for the mistake.
Overall you are way over priced for atmosphere and food quality. If you want to compete with Capital Grill and Ruth’s Chris, you need to improve a tremendous amount. We won’t be back. Our total check for 4 was $280.
It’s EJs. You’ll get the best. It’s always spectacular.
Absolutely incredible. Loved it! Boz was our server and was just great. Cannot wait to return. Cheers EJ’s!
It is always a treat to eat at EJ’s. It’s great that is open again. The only downside was the people at the table next to us was extremely loud talker and made sure everyone heard him.
Our steaks were delicious and large which the price worth it.
We love the place, ambience and food, it’s really perfect. Start from appetizer and to free dessert. It’s our first dinner date in that place and everything’s perfect.
EJ's failed to approve Open Table Reservation award. $247.00 for dinner for two leaves enough room for the $1.00 charge from Open Table.
My favorite steak house in the Chicago area. The entire meal was outstanding.
The absolute best steaks in Chicago.
Johnny’98 was an exceptional server. The cocktails, food and wine were outstanding. Outdoor dining was pleasant even at below zero wind chills.
