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

This restaurant is one of my favorites. They're really consistent on service and food. Sometimes they add or take set menu items, but you'll always fun something. Great atmosphere inside and out, I think. (For dessert, get the key lime pie!)

They have a nice variety of selections on the menu. The food was pretty good, I'd stop short of saying great though. Prices were typical for Chicago, but still higher than you'd expect to pay most other places.

I just love this restaurant. The Alexander's salad with the honey mustard dressing is one of my all time favorites. The prime rib is tender and flavorful. I have gone there many, many times for both lunch and dinner and have never been disappointed. Now they accept reservations it is even better and I will go more often.

We tried J. Alexander's for dinner. The food was outstanding. We had the Prime Rib, Salmon and Pork Loin. All three dishes were excellent. You could not ask for better entrees. The Prime Rib was accompanied by a great baked potatoe....The Pork Loin was served with the mashed potatoes that were wonderful. The Salmon came with a rice/ bean/corn mix... More

I have eaten at JA in 3 citys. Every time it was as good as the last. We come here on our anniversary or any excuse for a good meal. Love the Blue Cheese coleslaw and Steered Tuna

We planned a nice dinner for our anniversary. We had a lovely time and the food was very good. However, there's one huge exception. Because it was a Saturday night, I made sure to make reservations for 7:00. We arrived at 6:57, figuring we'd be seated momentarily. Instead, we were given a buzzer to wait. This did not make me...
