J. Alexander's - Oak Brook
Friday & Saturday: 11:00am - 11:00pm
The restaurant was GREAT. The only thing was the rotisserie chicken was really dry. Other than that I enjoyed myself.
Hadn't been here in while. I was very disappointed by the rushed atmosphere and the cost to value ratio. Will be my last time
Met 3 girlfriends at the bar and then had dinner. Very nice overall. Food was delish ... drinks were good. All-in-all, what I've come to expect here. Very nice experience. And hostess was particularly helpful as I had made reservation for a week later than I thought ... we showed up and she found a way to accommodate us, which was great. My error, but she made up for it and spared me the embarrassment. Very nice!
The manager Kacie is the best! She really knows how to run that restaurant and make sure that customers are completely satisfied!
Frank is an exceptional server, food was excellent, and the value for what you get is hard-matched! Highly recommend to anyone especially those on date night!
The menu is very limited. The food was tasty.
The service wasn't good at all.
The Redwood Salad was very good. Felt a little rushed at lunch time and the staff kept interrupting our conversation.
I didn't have a great meal last time I was there, I received a $25 voucher to go back so we tried it again. This time, the food was great and the service was great! Enjoyed our dinner.
Michael provided excellent service!
If you like Rotisserie chicken, you will love the seasoning on this chicken. I also love that there key lime is a true key lime pie.
Very good server
It was just okay. A little overpriced in my opinion. $17 for the amount of calamari that’s given is a bit high. Out server was sweet but just a little overwhelmed
It was my birthday and food was good but the waitress wasn’t so good and and she and other staff seemed like they wanted to rush us out of there and also I had to ask for my free birthday dessert or I wouldn’t of have gotten it at all.
Always good. David’s been manning the bar for years and takes good care.
Not a fan of wood fired steak. Calamari was adequate at best.
We absolutely froze when they put us in the back near window. It was packed, so another table really did not look like an option. If I go back, would never sit near windows in winter.
I always get the kids cut prime rib for my grandchildren. This time they got half the size they usually get . They were disappointed.
We came here for lunch to celebrate my fiance's Birthday and it was the perfect selection. They were sure to acknowledge his Birthday by Wishing him a happy Birthday when we checked in for our reservation. The menus also included a birthday wish and the waiter did the same. All staff members were nice & friendly, and the service was superb. Our food came out right on time and absolutely met our expectations and above! He had the NY strip and I had the baby back ribs, both with not your ordinary mac. The carrot cake here is the BEST and we can never go here without getting the chicken strips (as a starter) They are ALWAYS a hit. Hope this review helped!
Have been here for lunch 3 times & will definitely go again. Great menu & service!
Great food and service!
Food came out too fast on top of salads
Unfortunately we were disappointed. Our server was barely available and the food was sub par. My son ordered the New York strip steak and it was ALL fat. I believe that it was $38 and was definitely not worth it. He said the brocolli tasted funny also. My husband did like the chicken tenders. I had the ribs and they were ok, but the coleslaw was bad.
Been here many times. Every meal was wonderfully prepared and served. Not sure there is a better steak for the money — or regardless of the money. Great staff. Low turnover. Hard to imagine anyone not raving about it!
Disappointed when end cut meat was super salty where you couldn't even eat it and was not taken off the bill. They did make a new one but didn't even say dessert on us or anything. We spent over $200 there and felt they could have done something for making one person wait for a whole new meal to be prepared while rest of the party ate. Just expected more from them!
Normally good food and services but not on this visit
One of my favorite restaurants! Great atmosphere and great food!
I like the fact we can make a reservatioin.... we have always been seated right away.
The food was delicious and the portions were huge!
Excellent food and service, but a bit expensive. Very good appetizer.
Slightly pricey for the meals but good
I used to work in Oak Brook, and would visit regularly. I now live in Chicago, but make the drive every chance I get. I've introduced my wife, Mother, daughter, and other family members to J Alexander's. Everyone loves it! Especially the service.
Food was normally great, but this time it wasn’t. Steak was served rare (ordered medium well) and then when asked for a few more minutes, the steak came back inedible (well done). Disappointing, but normally good.
We always enjoy dining at J. Alexander’s. Food is consistently good although they ran out of my choice by 6:00 pm on a Monday. But there are good second choices and I love their Mac and cheese.
Haven't been in awhile due to poor service last time out. Service was better this time but asked for ice water and got warm water (It must be complicated). Sat in bar booths both times and will ask to sit in the main dining area next time (might get more experienced wait people).
Food is always great. Wine list is pretty good as well.
If you sit in the bar area to eat, sit at the bar proper, (you will have captive service). If Dave is at the bar, ask for him to take care of you, he's a pro (and funny as well).
The prime rib was awesome! Chicken tenders as well.
Normally a great place for lunch, but asked the salad to be split and to omit the bacon, croutons and cheese, salad came had all included. We did not send it back, everyone makes a mistake, but this normally doesnt happen and we asked the dinner to be split but the sides were not. This was our first time we were not so happy. Otherwise our favorite place.
Great steak and salad. I have to eat gluten free and the service staff helped me with what options I had.
Food is always awesome. Our server was terrific. We were there for a birthday and our server brought out a
Great place for a birthday dinner date, great food and excellent, quick service!
