Barclay's American Grille

Pork cop was undercooked (pink) and when i informed the waitress, she offered to have it cooked some more, but i declined. I ordered a burger and then i was informed that the pork chop that i ate two slices of was removed from my bill, lime they were doing me a favor. No manager ever came by to apologize, and nothing was offered nor giving to me. Very disappointed in the management and to make matters worse, I was sick later that evening. My wife's stake was below average. We were very disappointed.
Always a favorite when we come into Oak Park. Comfort food plus new dishes and great cocktails.
We came to see a friend who is in a small band. The sound system was awful. Loved the set up around the bar. My food lemon pepper chicken was great, but the rice was terrible. The rest of the diners liked their food. Our waiter was a nice guy. Would give it a second chance.
Opted for the Scallops, and they were fantastic. Great place for a date night!
Food was not what I expected
Reliably good food, excellent service, in a warm, inviting environment. Definitely warrants rerun visits.
Barclay's has come our "go to" place when we want to have a quiet meal in nice surroundings. The food is always excellent; the menu has old favorites and imaginative new recipes.
Went for a girls night out and we all had a great timr
A nice, quiet New Years dinner.
Great food! Great restaurant! Awful server! Only was at our table around 4 times. Never checked on us never brought refills. Thank god for the food runner and busters!
Service is usually pretty good but a little slow this time. Food and presentation was good as usual.
Had an excellent evening at Barclay's! Wonderful wine recommendation and very delicious dinner!
Good drinks and good food. My only complaint is that I asked specifically for a particular table in my reservation, and we were not seated at that table. The table we asked for sat empty the whole time we were there. Our table were we were seated was quiet enough, so it turned out okay.
This was s get together with friends for dinner. While two of us enjoyed s lovely meal, one friend ordered the fish and chips. She was underwhelmed, as it was soggy. She didn’t want to take the time to send it back while we enjoyed eating. She didn’t want to put s damper on the meal. She basically suffered in silence. Perhaps you could work on this dish?
All 4 of us loved the menu choices and also the happy hour bar cocktails. Lively atmosphere!
We go every Thanksgiving for the traditional fixings. This is a tradition we will continue.
Barclay's best Thanksgiving buffet ever! Been going for more than 15 years - every year! This year was especially delicious. The food selections were well chosen and paired extremely well. Loved it!
The Thanksgiving Buffet was absolutely WONDERFUL !! Food AND service were totally GREAT !!
We dined here before and loved it. The Cosmos were good and a great deal for happy hour.
Enjoyable evening and good atmosphere. Will definitely go back.
We arrived at 5:40 for a 6:00 reservation, and did not leave for over 3 hours. It was not because we were lingering and relaxing, it was because the service was appalling. We were pretty much ignored for ridiculously long amounts of time, making the night a marathon. When the waitress brought the checks, she said, "My table of 12 turned into a table of 25; thank you for your patience and understanding." Translation: please don't burn me on my tip, it wasn't my fault. Well, we are nice people, so she got tipped, but I am so aggravated by this appalling experience. Why would management give a waitress a table of 3 in one room, a table of 25 in another, and not make special arrangements for the table of 3? It was our first time and our last.
Very good! Good value! Great appetizers--entrees were fantastic, nice drink menu--great dessert!
Three couples dined here after a reunion. Fig flatbread was ordered by 3 of us and was delicious. One had quesadilla and I cannot remember the other orders. Waiter was cordial and efficient. Atmosphere was very enjoyable until the jazz combo started playing. The noise level was so loud, we could hardly hear each other and had to lean in across the table to converse. We would have gone somewhere else except we were all from out of town and this was the only place to meet. Not sure why there was a need to have that volume. It is not like there was room to dance. That was only complaint. Would definitely recommend as it was attached to the hotel where we stayed.
Had a very good dinner. Nice place with pleasant surrounding. Will go back again!
Got to restaurant -taking friends out to dinner.
The restaurant was CLOSED!!!!!!
They had accepted my reservation, and never let us know that they were NOT EVEN OPEN!!
What’s the deal?!?!!
Great neighborhood haunt! One of my favorites. Love the shrimp tacos! And the smashtini
Ambiance was great. Jazz quartet played nice music. Food a little pricey & nothing great. Had a shrimp dish that was so salty I did not eat much. However, the walleye was very tasty. Probably would not plan to eat there next time.
We enjoyed dining outside with our party of 7. The menu was varied enough to accommodate a number of diet preferences, without asking for something "special". They were more than happy to make simple substitutions of sides. We spent our occasion relaxing and enjoying each other's company instead of focusing on how the menu fell short for someone. Service was excellent. Bravo!
A neighborhood gem.
Barclay's is our "go to" place when we need a nice, quiet dinner. Excellent food: there's always something on the menu that is diabetic friendly. The shrimp dish with the zucchini noodles was perfect and delicious. Service is always great.
The service was good however, the food was overpriced and not so good.
Barclays never disappoints! Consistently excellent
Barclay’s never disappoints. Food is fresh, delicious, and ample. 🙂
Great food, beautiful hotel ambience. Maybe a little pricey. Great prime rib!
When I made reservations at Barclay’s, I thought I was eating at Barclay’s. Turns out, it was a brunch at the Carlton. The reservation did not make that clear. And buffets are not my family’s thing.
Had a lovely brunch for Mother’s Day. Our waitress was very attentive. Thanks so much.
My husband and I were married at the Carlton Hotel, and the chefs at Barclays did the food for our reception. We have come back for dinner every year for our Anniversary, and dinner has been amazing every time! This is a great date spot, cozy, family friendly and delicious food. I love the menu options and have never been disappointed. The circular bar and live sports in the TVs are a great place to just hang out when you just want a casual meal. Catch a night when they have some live music, and it’s a perfect evening!!!
Visited Barclay's American Grill with 5 others to listen to live music and enjoy food and beverages. The band was great, the food was fine (nothing special though, typical bar food). Fun time overall and I'd recommend it for an evening out.
Our server was amazing- very attentive and pleasant. The food was superb!
A monthly stop...chef designed menu, without fail excellent service, good cocktails.
