I've been coming here since they opened their doors. You gotta love the atmosphere, the service, the food. EJ cuts his steaks that are aged to perfection. Cooked as you liked, entrees come with salad and potatoes. I recommend the salad chopped with the house dressing and some anchovies. Fish for the non carnivore's... Great pasta dishes as well. Start... More

We were the first couple to be seated in the front area. Quiet, pleasant conversation and we were looking forward to the meal. Got our drinks and ordered our meal. Other guests started to arrive. Two tables of 9 and the noise level was deafening. Ate our salads and entrees and left quickly without dessert or coffee. Veal limone was... More

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

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.
