We had a comfortable booth, soups and salads for lunch and an altogether nice time. The food is reliably good and the portions are big without being crazy.
One of us had a baked potato, which was awesome!

Everything was 5 star - EXCEPT I was finally seated after a wait of +/- 25 minutes. I would think with the experience of this restaurants the wait time witha reservation from Open Table should be no more than 10-15 minutes.

I think overall my short stent in dining there was awful because of customer service from the greater and the manager with whom I complained to. The manager knew I had an issue with the greeter before we were seated. Instead of coming to me to see what the problem was first he went to ask her what happened while our very nice waiteress seated us. When he did come over and I was explaining to him what happened He cut me off by saying " Ok let's just not continue and enjoy your the rest of our experience", I will come check on you again." Very unprofessional so WE got up and walked out.

My prime rib was delicious. Some ordered the prime rib sandwich at my table and the coconut shrimp plate. All eight of us loved our food. Service was good. Our waiter made two mistakes but they were politely rectified.
I would definitely dine here again.

I took my husband here for the first time. I have been Gee before and am never disappointed. I had the redwood salad with rotisserie chicken, so tasty. My husband loved his NY strip, full of flavor. Our server Shay was perfect; attentive, cheerful, helpful.

This was our 10th anniversary and we go here every year. The food is fantastic and the service is always outstanding. The bill is usually around $100 but we order prime rib and maui steak. We always get a free desert at the end of our meal every year for our anniversary. The atmosphere is romantic and very comfortable.

Food was good and service was excellent. Price was crazy at almost $30 a person for a burger and chicken tenders. I don’t eat here much because of the crazy prices.

Service was very good. Food was good. Would like my salad a little colder and without gristle in the chicken pieces. Very nice atmosphere as usual at J. Alexanders. Like my viniagrette dressing a little more tart and less oily. Should probably ask for the dressing on the side.

Several of us ordered the chicken Milanese special . Cutlet baked with panko...not their best dish. Rather dry and bland.
But always enjoy the ambiance of this supper club atmosphere and aside from not ordering well this time, would definitely go back.

Expensive bad cocktails. Diluted and full of mixers and not booze. Great wedge salad that is not on the menu but the 5 ‘sea scallops’ for $33 were a rip off and not correctly cooked. It is not the kind of place, with the very young wait staff, to send things back to either the bar or kitchen. Just will not return to this location again. There are a lot of other choices in Oak Brook like Ditka’s. Other J. Alexander’s much better than this one in Oak Brook, IL

A little expensive, but the food is good.

I recommend the spinach queso dip for starters

All their sandwiches are good, save room for carrot cake. It's a generous slice for sharing and served warm...Yum

$35-$40 steak and one side. Side salad costs extra. Not much of a beer menu and limited appetizer options. Food was excellent and service very good.

I went in for an early dinner with my mom on a Saturday. We were seated and greeted right away. Our server recommended some appetizers and drinks, which were both fantastic. We had the spinach and queso dip, which was perfect for two. We ordered the fish tacos and the Asian tuna salad - both were prepared well and just the right amount of food. We saved room for a decadent chocolate bundt cake and ice cream. Yummy!
