Somewhat limited menu but what is there is prepared and presented in interesting ways. Also, the menu changes fairly often. The wait staff and bartender are very helpful and friendly. In warm weather, outside dining viewing the golf course is a treat.

The filet mignon was so tender. Have had the fish or shrimp tacos in the past. Had a wonderful dinner.

Ambiance is always great, cozy and welcoming. Love the captains chairs!- much easier to have a conversation in a comfortable chair.

Had a group of seven for a Saturday brunch. Nice room, quite so talking around the large table was easy. Good shorter breakfast menu and good service. Everyone enjoyed the restaurant. We will come back. I have been at The Glen Club during golf days and it can be active and busy but this is a find for a winter spot in Glenview.

We had a very nice time at The Glen Club. The food was good (not great), it was very comfortable, and we enjoyed our evening.

When we showed up to our reservation, we were told that the restaurant was booked solid, even thought we had an actual reservation. We were seated eventually, right by the entrance (felt like we were sitting outside the restaurant, with two kids). There were 2 servers for the entire restaurant. Our server kept walking away and every time we asked her a question, she seemed annoyed. When the food finally arrived, which took forever to get, my fish that was supposed to be grilled, tasted burned. I was very disappointed. The “bread basket” that we got for the table, had crackers in it and 3 little poppy seed rolls for the 4 of us... overall, I was disappointed, and would not come back.

Went with another couple on a Monday night. It was very quiet so nice for conversation. I had the chicken wrap, very good. Husband had soup and 1/2 sandwich. Consistently good food here. Burgers always good too. The staff is wonderful here.

Our seven o'clock open table reservation was not honored. Finally seated at 7:45. Even then there was very spotty and inefficient service. Management seems to be missing. Too bad. The food is excellent.

Sitting outside on a beautiful day, and looking at a beautiful golf course certainly helps. Waiter was very friendly and there when we needed him. Food and drinks met expectations.

Food was mediocre- slabs of corned beef on Reuben. If it had been thinly sliced - so much better! Fries limp. This place brings us back because my mother can hear here. The round tables are intimate and unless the bar is crowded noise level is reasonable.

We have eaten at the Glen Club several times but the service and food were second rate, at best. There appears to be new management that is literally "new". We ordered an "old fashion" from the bar and it was made with vodka (what?) When ordering, we had to remind our waitress that she needs to ask how we would like our steaks cooked. We also had to remind her to ask what salad dressing we would like on our salads. My father's skirt steak was literally a strip of thin steak that was burnt, not "well done". The time it took to order dessert, eat and receive the bill took much longer than it needed to be or we wanted it to be. The noise level in the restaurant was loud. Our waitress couldn't hear us talk to place our order and we had a difficult time hearing each other talk.

Hidden gem in the Glenn with attentive service, good food and clubby ambience. The only disappointment was our request to sit in the beautiful outdoor patio wasn't fulfilled because club members get priority for outside seating.

My skirt steak was flat as a pancake and well done/NOT medium rare by a long shot!!! We had to constantly search for our waiter to request drink refills, more chips and steak sauce. When he finally did show up he was MOST unpleasant and acted put out! If it weren't for the wonderful view, I would never come back and tell all my friends and coworkers about this very UNHAPPY birthday experience!!!!

We love this venue for dining, especially in the beautiful weather we have been having. The food was very good and our waitress was extremely pleasant and accurate. Our only disappointment was that when we reserved our table, we had asked for an outdoor table and were told when we arrived that the wait for that location would be 1 hour.

I have dine there often but will rethink this after last few times. You cannot get reservations outside, the inside room is freezing and when it is crowded the service is so slow. It took us 2.5 hr to have dinner and our waiter had to be called for order, check, and refills. When the water glasses were filled initially, water was spilled on the floor and I had to ask to have it wiped up so my friend would not trip when she arrived. Service needs to be greatly improved.

It was way too loud. I couldn’t even have a conversation with my husband and we were seated at a table for two! Our server was running around (apparently busy) but pretty inattentive. She was very sweet but the service wasn’t great. The food (turkey burger and a very small skirt steak) tasted good.

This was a poor experience. We waited to be greeted at least 10 minutes before the waitress showed up. We ordered and waited 55 minutes before our incorrect order showed up. Very poor service.
