We went there for dinner as a family of 4 to celebrate my son's birthday. Two people had steak and the other two had pasta dishes. The food was NOT cheap and the quality was neither memorable nor worth the price. We won't be coming back.

It would be too simplistic to call EJ's an American Steakhouse, although that is what the ambiance suggests. The food includes fish and pasta and all American favorites. I had a German Octoberfest draft beer that was delightful. Wait staff are men dressed in starched white steakhouse fashion of the 20th century, rather than cool and sloppy duds of the... More

Glad I wasn't picking up the tab..... But glad I could enjoy the excellent meal! 11 of us were in a small cozy room near the front and it was a great spot for a large group. Waiters were attentive and pleasant and the drinks decent.... In very plain glassware.... Apps were above average with peppers and sausage being the... More

Fun evening with friends at one of their favorite local places. Had a nice filet with all the fixings.

Returning to Chicago for a week, I was excited to to back to EJ's, which I had previously reviewed as outstanding although everything is $ 10 overpriced. I have to revise that statement. Everything is really good, but at least $ 15 overpriced! I had Chicken Vesuvio, which was really good, but I'd had it a few days earlier at... More

Six of us went to dinner. The drinks before dinner were full and well prepared. The dinner was steak around the whole table with all the trimmings. Everyone was delighted with their meals. A real dinning experience!!

This a little more upscale ( pricey) place that you go to for a treat. I am usually deciding what to get on the way there. Great Dover sole and great chicken with peppers. Steaks also very good but really many places make steak. Excellent friendly service. And...martinis.

EJ's Place is a wonderful "supper club" type restaurant for small or large groups, with a large fire place in the main room. As the portions are large, we often share an entrée which comes with a crisp house salad and bread (we enjoy the fish options here). The quality of the food is excellent, and the staff are friendly/superb!... More

We love this place! The staff is professional and friendly, the bartenders are all-pro, and the food is consistently terrific. A fireplace in one corner, one or two wall-mounted subtle tv's in case you need to check a score, and a menu that will take you back to your childhood (if you were born 50+ years ago). Great to eat... More

I am a local. I have read reviews regarding the prices. I will say that these days in this area you have Jameson's which is basically ponderosa. Ruths Chris in NBK, always good. Morton's in NBK, not what it used to be. The steaks are pricey but in line with other steaks of that quality around chicago. The steaks are... More
