Awesome spot. Hidden gem for sure. Little pricey but well worth putting in a reservation and having a nice dinner. Food is excellent and the drinks are very good as well.
Daughters 18th birthday. We are from out of state. She attends Concordia university. Had an excellent meal and great desserts. Service was the best!
Barclay's is SO GOOD. Get the ribs - they're the best in town. If you like live music, come at 7pm or after. If you don't, be sure to leave before then because you can't hear anything once that music starts. Food is delicious and reasonably priced.
Clam Chowder and Walleye were both very tasty. Many beer choices.
A very busy night - but it did't change the excellent service and the fabulous dinner. Barclay's has had some wine changes - for the better. Love the Pinot Noir! Great night!
Wonderful experience, live music, excellent service and tasty meals of large portions.
Great! Will be back.
It took someone 15 minutes to great us at our table and that was only after we said something to the hostess. At least 4 waiters walked past us within that first 15 minutes and said nothing.
Service is always amazing. I love sitting on the patio. A great experience overall!
Great burger, nice outdoor seating, great service!!!
Great to sit outside...we had a great, personable, engaging server as well. Have been there many times before over the years. will continue going back.
Live Music at 8pm was a nice surprise. I would return if I was near Oak Park.
Good local restaurant serving American comfort food. Very nice and attentive servers. Great dessert menu. Added bonus was hearing a local band.
The food needs improvement. Servers were nice and attentive but we were also the only table sat in the restaurant.
Nice place but too expensive. 12$ for 2 tacos. Minimum 10$ for a glass of wine. Food was good and I liked the music but too expensive for me
Prices for wine, either a glass or a bottle, are very expensive...not what you would expect for Oak Park. They should rethink this because it will keep me away until they do.
Barclay's continues to separate itself from the old Philander's it used to be. Good for some, sad for others. However, the service and caliber of the menu has been very persuasive.
We had a group of 8 and the service was excellent. Food was prepared as requested.
My wife and I regularly dine at Barclay's. The pretzel encrusted trout is always superb. We invited another couple for their first visit. The husband had the trout and loved it as well as the two sides (wild rice and green beans almondine). His wife thoroughly enjoyed the huge pork chop. The only negative was the singer who had the amplifier cranked up to concert level despite it being a small to medium size room. It was most distracting to table conversation. The service was impeccable by the waiter and by several assistants (they were much more than bus staff). The left overs were boxed in recyclable material (not styrofoam). Barclay's is a medium to high class restaurant with moderate prices.
Barclay's is our favorite "go to" place when we want to be good to ourselves. The service is good and the food is excellent. Most of all, when we request our preference in seating, we're always accommodated.
Barclay's is a great Oak Park staple. They have a wide variety of food , which is always prepared well. The service is top-notch. We try to come in at least once or twice a month.
It was my our 44th wedding anniversary. This is one of our favorite restaurants for many years. Our daughter had her wedding reception at the hotel. Great dining and ambiance.
We had an enjoyable Sunday dinner. We found free parking across the street. The service was very good.
We were not rushed. We had branzino and salmon. The mushrooms, squash, and asparagus that accompanied the grilled branzino were well prepared and healthy.
The Easter Brunch was fabulous. Everything was fresh. Hot dishes were hot. There were so very many people enjoying the afternoon with friends and family. It was very nice to see. Highly recommend Barclay's for meals for any occasion. Great people.
The service, the Ambiance, and the food, is always superb!
One of my favorite places to dine . I've been going to this establishment for over 30 years.
The food was very good. The bands on Saturday nights add to the enjoyment.
My husband and I ordered filet mignon and the server brought two Delmonico steak dinners to the table. We looked at it and thought why is it flat like that? We both took one bite and soon discovered that it was not filet mignon. It was fatty and chewy. We immediately alerted out server and she apologized. She said she thought we said Delmonico when we were ordering. Honest mistake. We had to wait for a new order (correct order) but not for a long time. When it arrived we knew right away it was correct. It was delicious! The folk singers that were performing that evening were such a delight.
This was our first visit and we were thoroughly pleased.
Great food and atmosphere and the entertainment was top notch.
We’ll be back!
Live music on Saturday is fun!
I would recommend going when there is music. I am not a fan of the TV theme - there are literally television sets every where, giving the room an ethereal blue glow. But when there is music, sit at a bar table, have some wine or cocktails, and enjoy.
Excellent American menu with some seafood as well. Great meal overall.
Our second time there...We chose Barclay's the first time as a midway meeting point between my cousin in Naperville and us in Chicago East Lakeview neighborhood....
Over-all we like the restaurant, the ambiance, food and service....however:
This time I was disappointed in my meal...I ordered the BBQ ribs, full slab...I believe the ribs were lying around and were "old".....the meat was so soft and mushy with no texture left at all....tasted OK but mushy....
Would probably return to give them another shot....
The food was terrible came out dry and not very tasty for the price point it was not a very good deal . Would not go back
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.
