The food was amazing as was the selection. This was my first time here and I'm sure I'll be back. I just can't think about it now because I'm still full.

We had a wonderful meal prior to attending the show. The ONLY downfall was that our server never came back to our table after we had finished eating. We were told the table was "ours" until the brunch was over, which we appreciated, but after 45 minutes we had to flag her down to get the check. Coffee and water refills stopped despite the fact others were still getting service all around us.

A group of us took a friend who is moving from Chicago to the Sunday brunch on Palm Sunday. It was more of a farewell event. This was my second time at Lucille's Sunday Brunch at Drury Lane in Oakbrook. We had a fantastic time. The food was excellent and there was a large selection of meal options. Well worth the money. The staff there is wonderful. Everyone is so helpful and friendly. I will definitely be coming back bringing more friends.

It was fine for convenience pre show. Our server was very nice, but seemed over worked and therefore slow. After dinner it took a long time before we were given dessert menus, and then even longer for her to be back with the desserts.

Hope it was just a bad night for them but it’s was 15 minutes to be said hello too and 29 minutes from when we got our not great dinner til someone asked if we wanted dessert or check the show was due to start in 15 minutes at that time so no time for dessert even though we were starving after the dinner check arrived 4 minutes before showtime
All the tables around us were having the same issue

Enjoyed a pre-theatre dinner. Our server, Rose, was exceptional. She was very energetic and knowledgeable about the menus. Her timing of the serving of drinks, soups, entrees and desert was spot on. We never were rushed and had plenty of time to relax before the show.
I would definitely return. This was our second time dining at Lucille and Rose was our server both times. She did an impeccable job both times.

We've enjoyed the brunch at Lucille's many times in the past. This was unusual. The place was packed and we were placed in the back of the back room (we've always sat in the main dining room). It was crowded, obnoxiously loud, and the service was mediocre at best, which was disappointing. The food was awesome, as it always has been. We're hoping that this visit was an anomaly. We'll be back in the future but if it happens again, at this price, it will no longer be our "go-to" celebration place.

Wonderful experience. They have everything, meat, egg, crêpe, waffle, kids, seafood, & dessert station, fresh donuts & pastries. They cover everything. With the $40 price point it looked as thpugh Mimosa’s are included. We chose to do the build your own bloody is at $10 per drink. Only suggestion is with the Bloody Mary’s you all should really figure out a set price for an unlimited option, even for the other drink choice options as well.

This was my first visit and I was very please with everything! It is a beautiful atmosphere and the food was incredible with so many great options! The service was fantastic and I really liked that they let us take our time and didn't push us out, given that it was a buffet dinner. It was a very relaxing and most enjoyable time. I would highly recommend visiting, especially if you have picky eaters because there is something for everyone! Excellent !

The restaurant is beautiful, and everyone was very friendly. The bread server was on point! While our actual server was very nice, he didn’t check on us. He didn’t serve our food (which is fine), but that meant he never came came around to see if we needed something....we had to try to find him or someone else to help us. We didn’t need much , but we would have liked another round of cocktails. There also wasn’t one time someone came to fill my iced tea without me looking for someone and making the request. The food was fine, and what you would expect from a banquet type facility.

Room was nice but not special. This venue has many beautiful flower arrangements.... I did not notice any in this room. Greenery would help the coldness of the room. Servers were excellent. Treats very good. I wasn’t that happy that everything came out at once. Food items are brought out separately at other teas.
Nice afternoon and I will try it again.

Whether you are seeing a play or not, Lucille’s restaurant at Drury Lane is first class all the way! An impressive display for the palette as well as yummy for the tummy! The bonus is the very professional and talented actors that are at Drury Lane Theater!

Our burger, mashed potatoes, fries, salads and shrimp with grits were great! Unfortunately, the pizza we ordered for our daughter off the children's menu for $10 was terrible. It was a poor quality frozen cheese pizza. They should be able to do better for $10.

Service was excellent. The setting is beautiful and elegant. We loved that.

Also, the cheesecake was delicious and the serving very generous.

Charming pre-theatre ambiance, especially for my eight year old granddaughter. Attentive and cheerful wait staff. The Calamari Fritto Misto appetizer was a delicious surprise: there were also artichokes and thinly sliced pickled peppers in a very light and lemony batter.

Service was somewhat slow. Some food items were good but others not good. Flank steak was tough and salmon sauce was gelatin like. Prices rather high for a la carte.
Not likely to return. Many better restaurants in the area.
