It may seem odd to hear this for a steakhouse type of restaurant, but their soup (and Chili on Saturday) is always amazing.

We had a party of almost 20 which were split up between two tables. Very pleasant wait staff, food was good, prices were affordable.

Waiter was very poor. Was not very attentive for a higher level dining establishment it’s as tho he really didn’t care to service his tables. Prime rib was awful. Bland and very tough. Fish tacos tasted very fishy. Not at all what I expected for a steakhouse of this presumed caliber. Skip J Alexander’s. Not worth the money.

the restaurant is delicious it is a go-to spot for me and my friends. The Emerald Shrimp are amazing when they have them- I wish that they would bring them back as a menu staple because I would go at least once a week!

Of all the restaurants in oak brook this was my least favorite. It's Pretty dirty from the bath rooms to the tables and walls it really needs an entire deep clean from top to bottom. Service was ok. There was no bread brought to table which I thought was wired so I asked and was told They only bring bread to the table upon request. My bill was 100 for 2 steaks no appetizers, no alcohol and no dessert. I should not have to ask for bread it should be brought out automatically. Did I mention the dead fruit fly on my menu and keep in mind it's winter so we should see zero fruit flies. I would not go back nor would I reccomens this restaurant.

Deviled eggs are a must! I also love their pomegranite martini. It has pomegranate juice, and just the right amount of vodka. The rotisserie chicken is good, and it comes with mashed potatoes. Huge portion and you can ask for all white meat. If they have their chili as a soup option, it's a must have! Absolutely delicious.

The service was excellent. The calamari were tender and savory. There were 4 of us & we each enjoyed what we ordered. We also appreciated the ability to carry on a conversation without shouting.

Very nice could use more seating for people waiting for a table. Also have someone take drink orders while people are waiting to be seated.

Had a 6:45 Reservation. My girlfriend and I were seated promptly arriving a bit before our time. I heard a party check in right before us, and they were going to have a 1.5 hour wait. Make a reservation if you're coming on Friday or Saturday night.

A very simple American menu. We both ordered steaks (filets). Both good. I really enjoyed my seasonal special sweet potato, along with my broccoli side. GF enjoys J's Fries.

I will be coming back, but will pay half the price for the burger.
