This is a very popular restaurant conveniently located in Skokie IL (really near the Woodfield Mall). Valet Parking only. Extensive menu for all tastes Large portions -- enough to split and share (and take home) Attentive service (white jackets) and very professional. ............ but expensive -- cost for 2 without wine, but including tip is +- $120 !!!

What a surprise! Even though I had a buffet type style meal, it was awesome! I'm typically not a fan of buffet style but seeing as though I was attending a private event in their back room, it was most appropriate for the occassion. The chicken was perfectly seasoned and I loved the salad. It was simple yet full of... More

We had another great dinner at EJs Saturday night with another couple. We were seated in the room with the bar. The salads and cocktails were great. We had filet mignon, broiled shrimp, and chicken vesuvio.

We've driven by this place many times. Tonight, we were intending to go to the nearby Maggianos (Old Orchard) but the wait was too long. We decided to try EJ's and were pleasantly surprised. Yes, the mandatory valet parking (as others have noted) was unusual but not an issue - its free folks! We got in immediately as we were... More

Old-school steaks and chops - the food is wonderful and the service excellent but not sure it's worth it unless you're on expense account or celebrating a special occasion. I left feeling like I had a great dining experience but that the value isn't there. Lots of other dining options close by for a better value. Their Chicago steak house... More

I love EJ's Place! Coming from another part of the country where steakhouses are not as they are in Chicago, it's always a treat to go to EJ's. I think their steaks are just wonderful, but, I usually order the chicken a la Joe (chicken with peppers, all white meat). This is not a dish I have ever had anywhere... More

If you can't have a quiet conversation with your dinner partner, you must be at EJ's. If you meal is OK but the price is Oh Boy, you must be at EJ's. My wife and I dined there once and promised not to subject ourselves to the abuse again.

I do agree with the comments on the entree prices. When you first take a look, there's a bit of sticker shock. But my friend and I split a strip steak, and still took home left-overs. With a shared entree, the average came out to be what I spend at most Chicago restaurants. Our steak was perfectly cooked. The sautéed... More

Typically, Steak restaurants are expensive. I get that. Most of the time, when I go to a steak restaurant, I obviously want a good steak, good company, attentive service and a great atmosphere. Most of the time, I would venture downtown to Chicago when it is time to satisfy my steak craving. A friend recommended Ej's and visited on a... More
