I've been here only four times now but each time I have to say the food has been delicious, the service excellent and prices very reasonable. It's fast becoming one of my favorite restaurants in the Oak Brook area. My favorite meal are the BBQ ribs with plum sauce, my husband goes for the prime rib and my daughter a... More

I love J. Alexanders. I first dined at one in San Antonio, TX. and loved it. I was thrilled to find one in Illinois! I have dined there for both lunch and dinner. The food is fresh, service is friendly, and quality is consistent. They don't mind if you want to take a little time over a glass of wine... More

Had dinner here with friends. Our server was attentive and provided recommendations. The restaurant has an old-time feel but in a good way -- not run down, but classic. The prime rib was good and so was the banana cream pie. I would come back again.

Every time my glass was empty, here comes a fresh new drink on the table. Food was out pretty fast for a busy Saturday night. We went there to celebrate my mothers birthday. It was a great choice because she said it was "The best steak of my life!" She also turned 72, so this wasn't her first steak. Deviled... More

Great food - good lunch spot. Dinner menu is great as well - and a solid wine list. Service is top of the line. Only complaint would be it can get quite noisy at lunchtime and harder to hold colleague lunches at.

Made reservations for Father's Day. Arrived at the designated time and was immediately shown to our table. Not that they weren't busy, but the service was superb. There were others sitting waiting for a table who apparently did not make reservations, and I heard a view groans LOL. A reservation is definitely a great thing to have and it's nice... More

I've been here many times and have never had a bad meal. The service is impeccable, the drinks are good and they have the best steaks and salmon ever! No dress code but nice casual seems to be the preferred.

This used to be the only place I'd want to go for Prime Rib and I'd rate every other restaurant's Prime Rib against J A's. Not any more! The prices continue to rise as the quality drops. In addition to a more routine tasting piece of meat, the salad, which was far better than you'd get ANYWHERE else, is now... More

I love this place. Food is always good. On the road and eating alone is a drag so going to a place with great food helps. This trip I felt a little rushed, eating my salad and my dinner shows up. I told the server to take it back and remake it when I'm ready for it. The manager comes... More
