Good American Fare

We visited with our family of 5 for lunch and were seated in a spacious corner booth. The service was great, they were very attentive and refilled our drinks frequently.

Really enjoyed the trout. The atmosphere was nice; we had a large party that was handled very well. Would definitely return.

We've been here a number of times. Every other time we came on a weekend night. On weekends, it's packed and even with a reservation, we've had to wait (which is annoying). This time we came on a Wednesday night so it was not crowded. Had the crab cakes which were awesome. One of my boys had the tuna and... More

I would rather go to Season 52 or Wildfire than this place. The prime burger was OK, very good quality but a little bland, they serve it on a french roll which I personally didn't like. The fries had great potential but they were room temperature. Service was efficient, but I must have had 6 different wait people come by... More

3rd time I've visited this restaurant and have been pleased with each visit. Good selection of beer and alcohol and I personally love the burgers! I enjoy the environment of the restaurant also. The staff is very polite and helpful. I'm look forward to my next visit.

We have dined at this restaurant several times and always receive a great meal and service. Service is friendly and attentive. Favorite selections are the fish tacos and THE best burger. Fries are also a must! Save room for the chocolate cake and ice cream. Dave ( at the bar) is professional and attentive.

The food was good, service professional and friendly, but what really struck me was how extensive the wine list is, and what amazing values can be found on the list. Perhaps that explains why it was so full early on a Tuesday night.

Went on a Tuesday night for a business meal. server was very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful but overall service was slow. Overall dinner was very lengthy. Appetizers and meals were very good and everyone at our party was pleased with the quality of their entrees. Prices we average for the location and quality. Would return again based on the quality.

This is maybe forgotten because it isn't on restaurant row in the Oak Brook Mall but if you are interested in a wide menu selection with reasonable prices give this place a try- It is busy so call ahead for reservations. We were there on a Saturday night- had the wedge salad, prime rib special, 2 prime ribs sandwiches and... More

This isn’t going to be a long review as it doesn’t have to be. I’ve returned many times to J Alexanders in Oak Brook and always find the food good, the staff good and the wine good.
