Good food fun place. Can be a little noisy and hard to have a conversation at times. Worth going to.

My lunch colleague and I each ordered the lunch soup and salad combo. The waiter charged us the full menu price for each item - which was twice the price of the lunch special. As we were in a hurry I did not catch this "mistake" until after I left. I am disappointed by the error since we both clearly stated we wanted the lunch special. Otherwise the restaurant is very nice, service was good, and the food was excellent.

Thank you to the manager for following up so quickly and addressing the error. I will be back.

Hadn't been back in years b/c of menu and prices. Heard it had merged w/ Redlands. Appreciated the new menu offerings, prices and the improved wait staff. Food was very good, service a little spotty. Decor appeared the same. Would return and would try for dinner options.

J. Alexander's - Redland's Grill - Northbrook is our son's favorite restaurant. He is 15 years old. He puts on a suit when he goes in Alexander's. This is the "highest score"! )))

As always it was a great way to spend an evening with some of my buddies. Between the great choices of entries and the great service how can you go wrong.

I always get together with a friend here and we always split the same thing. The Redlands salad (delish), and the prime rib sandwich with extra crispy fries. We have them split it for us, get 2 different dressings, and they are always extremely accommodating.
Our waiter Jason, we have had several times before, is always a pleasure and never rushes us though we tend to sit and chat for a long time.
Food is always good, service is always good and we always enjoy the atmosphere.

Food was great. It seems every time we sit at the bar to eat, the bartenders are more interested in talking to each other and friends therefore service leaves a lot to be desired.

We’ve eaten at J. Alexander’s several times. All before Redlands Grill. So, this time was different and a bit unexpected. We liked the menu and all our meals were very nicely presented as well as delicious. We won’t wait so long to return.

Food is fine - typical office park step below fine dining step above casual dining. Wait staff ehh....not so good. Had to ask 3 times for glasses of water. It’s fine. Not a destination- just fine. The location in Oak Brook is superior in service for sure.

Attend this restaurant frequently and usually is a good experience. The night we went they were very crowded and were struggling to handle the customers. We hand a number instances where our order was incorrect. We even had the waiter insist we were wrong when we told him that we were repeated diners and the item that was delivered was not correct only to turn out that we were correct.

First time there and was very impressed with the creative food and great wines by the glass.
It was a VERY busy Saturday and we were seated right on time for our reservation.
The only problem I have with the place is that it's 80 miles away from where we live. We'll be back!
