My first meal here would have been around 10yrs ago. Each time I come to Chicago on business I stay in the Hilton nearby, so often eating around the local restaurants. This place is full any night of the week, service is excellent, and the food has been consistently excellent in my experience eating here the past 10yrs. The only... More

I go here often and had not reviewed them. You are greeted quickly and seated. Servers are usually quick to arrive get an order and refill drinks. The club sandwich and roasted chicken are great. Sides are easy to select and like the broccoli over fries. Carrot cake is great and often to go. Nice clean atmosphere. I realized I... More

One of the best prime rib entrees that I have had. Went here with a group from work and all enjoyed the food and the service.

This past Saturday, Oct 25 we visited J Alexander's with our friends we haven't seen in 6 months. The meal started weird as we were switched servers 3 times in first 5 minutes of sitting down. Our server was very uneducated about basic gluten free questions. I eventually spoke to the manager to make sure my friend's food was properly... More

I have eaten here probably 10 times and every time the food is perfect and the service is impeccable. This is a chain, but the experience does not feel that way.

I met a friend here for lunch. I had wanted to try the French Dip due to good reviews but $19 for a lunch sandwich seemed a bit much. Ended up ordering the Cheeseburger that came with string fries. Both were good but seemed a tad pricey at $13. Similar to what I'd get at Red Robin for less. Service... More

We (my wife and I) were shopping at Oak Brook's shopping center (where the sales tax is 2% less than in Chicago); just outside the mall before you get to the main highway that takes you back to Chicago, we saw a small new shopping center with a sign for J.Alexander's restaurant and, since it was around noon on Saturday,...

We were there on a Thursday evening and the place was packed by 6:30. I highly recommend that you make reservations. Our large group was not easily accommodated and we were a bit cramped in our space, even though we had reservations. But we had wonderful service and management checked in on us several times. We were not rushed and... More

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
