Been here twice, first time was great. Second time not so much. Poor service experience with the waitstaff they didn't check on us we had to keep flagging them down to get drink refills.

I’m not a brunch person but came with wife who is. Overall, better than expected, but held back slightly on review due to valet who didn’t even look at us upon our arrival and hostesses too interested in their own conversation to thank us and or bid us good day on way out. That will keep score below five stars every time. Otherwise, our server Lynn was great.

This visit was more like what I've come to expect from The Clubhouse. Food was good, fresh & portions were big. Service was attentive but not overbearing. It was a great lunch date with my spouse during the business day!

Our group was celebrating Mom's 80th birthday. We requested a table not far from the buffet line with handicap access and we were situated close to the buffet and not far from the elevator with plenty of space for a wheelchair and canes. Access to the buffet was fine for the wheelchair. Mom even got a special birthday dessert! The selections on the buffet included the standard breakfast choices as well as entrees and seafood and carver.

We went for the Sunday Brunch buffet and it was remarkable. Never have seen a buffet with Stone crab claws, and they had done all the work too. Food was fresh, plentiful, and well prepared. You must try the banana french toast. It was moist, flavorful, and delicious. We will be back.

We asked for a table in a quiet area so we could enjoy conversation. One member in our party has a hearing deficit. We were seated on the main floor which was very noisy, especially when there was entertainment. Likely won't return.

The food and service were absolutely top notch and our birthday girls were treated like queens. We were seated on time, in a booth (which we had requested in advance). We work literally a mile away from your restaurant and love to share our work/personal celebrations at The Clubhouse. We'll be back again soon! Thank you!!

This used to be one of the best places in Oak Brook to dine. Over the past 18 months it has dropped significantly. As a result, the menu has been reduced drastically and the restaurant rarely uses the upstairs (except for private parties and/or brunches). There were barely 20 tables the night we visited. Our server was wonderful and very attentive but the food was mediocre. The spinach artichoke dip had so much spinach and so little cheese that it was dry. Hope it finds a revival but so much in Oak Brook is changing that I’m sure this will become a distant memory.

The food, service and desserts are worth the trip.

The menu has changed and not for the better. Had to ask to sit upstairs. Food mediocre. Service just ok. Too much competition in Oakbrook not to be better. Probably will not return.

My experience was a good one. The online process worked well, even as I had to change the group number. Convenient parking was available. I was greeted at the door and directed to the Bar to wait for my group. My server was prompt and attentive. Five checks were delivered to avoid a lot of confusion: "I didn't have the salad." I will be back. Thanks.

My wife and I came back to the Clubhouse after having our wedding reception there the fall of 2018
We were seated immediately at our reservation time which is always a plus. This was a Friday night so there was live music which added to the ambiance.
Sorry but I don’t remember the name of or server but she was great. Sometimes a server can be over attentive but in her case the service was just right.
I had the new your strip with mushrooms and smashed potatoes and my wife had the seafood pasta. Outstanding!
Another note about the ambiance. This is a great date location and your date should be impressed.

Everything was nice except for the hostess who was rude to us when we walked in. She did not say hello. No welcome, no hello. She said ‘May I help you’ with a rude tone. Like she wondered why we were there. I didn’t feel welcomed at all. The couple behind us she said welcome and had a friendly tone. We had a wonderful waiter named Frank!

Service was timely and attentive as usual. My risotto was barely warm at center and cool at the edges but very well prepared. It's not the fault of the restaurant that a cute little girl was running circles around her family's table but it took the edge off an otherwise romantic meal.
My new bride thoroughly enjoyed her salmon. I rated this visit as "good" but we have dined at The Clubhouse many times and rated it higher.

We have eaten at this restaurant many times. We generally do not get dinners, but salads, appetizers and sandwiches and although a little pricey for these items the food and service has been good. This time we ordered dinners. We ordered two Sunday dinner specials which was three courses including a salad, main course and dessert. The price for the special was only slightly better than if these items were ordered separately. The salmon was undercooked and only came with inexpensive mashed potatoes unless an upcharge was paid for a vegetable or baked potato which they were out of at 6:30 PM. The house salad appeared to be a smaller version of their ala carte version of the salad. The prime rib was good, but again only came with mashed potatoes without an upcharge. The included dessert were besides not being very good were one quarter the size of the actual dessert when ordered separate. We were never told that these Sunday dinners were reduced sized items to those ordered separate. The waiter was rude and unattentive. Not what you would expect for this price point establishment. The third entre that we had was pork chops that were over salted and had to be sent back. The restaurant was pretty empty and this experience pretty much explains why. Probably will not go back. There are too many other places to go to at this price and have a much better meal and better service!

I love this place! We haven’t been for a while and brought a newbie and was impressed as always. Food quality is amazing. They were able to modify so that we could find dairy and gluten free options. The salads were incredible. We had a new server Anne - 4th shift - and she was amazing. My friend truly enjoyed the experience. Thanks as alway!

The Brunch at the Club House was wonderful. The food was great, and they were bringing in fresh made dishes all the time. The Prime Rib itself was worth the cost of the entire meal. The service provided lacked nothing. If you can, ask to sit in Lynette’s area - she was fabulous - remember her name!

Great place for Sunday Brunch. The selection of food and desserts is fantastic. I started off at the Omelet station and had a custom Omelet along with a couple of slices of Prime Rib (cooked to perfection) then I sampled from the wide selection of breakfast items and excellent desserts.
Can't wait to go back!
I would recommend to my family and friends
