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

We love J Alexander's. Went with friends sat outside. Our waiter was also the bartender filling in as wait staff and was great. Best prime rib in Chicago! Always consistent and good !

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

Visited this restaurant for the first time recently with a group of friends who had been there previously. It was a pleasant surprise given the number of competing restaurants in the area. Large and open comfortable setting with fresh, creative dishes. Fairly priced for the quality. A young server dealt with our "older" group very well, with humor and great... More

We have dined here before, always great different food and usually good service. Came early to dinner, ordered drinks and appetizer- those wonderful grilled artichokes. Small smokey fire outside and someone opened door by bar and let smoke into restaurant. Evacuated, as we should be, never invited back in just went in once fire was out. Several people left but...

I live in Southern California where J. Alexanders doesn't have a store. I crave the grilled chicken salad on a regular basis!

J Alexander's in Oakbrook Terrace is an excellent restaurant with a very attentive service staff. The prime rib sandwich and fries are outstanding, and very reasonable for the quality and quantity served. Top shelf drinks are expensive, so you may want to enjoy their house wine selection. Free appetizers coupons are offered to guests staying at participating area hotels (Ask... More
