“Could be much better”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

This old time supper club with the best Long Island Ice Teas in the world should be able to prepare decent food, but falls flat. As this is in my hometown, I am very hopeful they will improve and therfore, I try them every 6-8 months hoping they have got their act together (this has been going on for 15 yesrs) but they always fail to produce a decent meal.

“What a nice surprise. I would suggest a different type of bread for dinner.”
Reviewed 2 July 2012

Took my wife here for our 45th wedding anniversary because she had a taste for prime rib. We weren't disappointed. The steak was done perfectly. The service was excellent and the cocktails were great.

“Could be fantastic, but misses the mark.”
Reviewed 12 May 2012 via mobile

This place has great martinis with hand stuffed blue cheese olives. The smoked salmon is wonderful, but the presentation is an embarrassment. The chopped onions, capers, etc come in little plastic cups! This is not a cheap place to eat... I expected better.

This is where you should go if you want to feel really young...I'd say the median age is about 65.

Although our food was good, our waitress spoiled the entire evening with her rudeness. With so many great places to eat in the western suburbs, it's hard to choose one that makes you feel bad as you leave.

“Old School Feel”
Reviewed 21 June 2009

Rayme's is a nice restaurant; one that you could picture your dad and mom going for a steak and martini way back when. It reminds one of an old supper club, both inside and out.

Food is very good, and reasonably priced (a little on the high end for what you get on some items). Mashed potatoes and gravy are served by the scoop, and the drinks are large and delicious. Staff is friendly and prompt.

Rayme's recently underwent an ownership change, but it seemed as though everything remained the same. I asked our waitress if they planned on redecorating, and (thankfully) the answer was "no".

"If it ain't broke...don't fix it".
