This restaurant has the feel of a log cabin. The food is excellent. The service is fantastic. A little pricey but worth it

We hadn't eaten at the restaurant where EJ's Place is, since the 1970s, when it was owned by Chicago White Sox Owner, Bill Veeck. On our way to get some pies for T-Day at Bakers Square nearby, we decided to try it, based on a...More

This friendly well staffed restaurant is clearly a hot spot in Skokie. We arrived without a reservation and were told that we could have a drink at the bar and just let the staff know when we wanted to be seated. After one drink and...More

This is my favorite classic steak house. I've been coming here for a almost two decades. The food is delicious and consistent. The service is spectacular. The waiters and staff are professional, they create nice, cozy atmosphere. Thank you EJ for all the great memories.

No gimmicks, white tablecloths, relaxed atmosphere, no loud music, and a totally awesome professional staff. It harkens back to the day when service was king. The food is good, too! EJ learned the business from a pro and we never have a bad time here....More

don't know if it was a Friday night or where we were seated, but noisier than normal and food was not as good as past visits. Steak was medium, not rare. Lots of things seemed thrown on the plate. Quantity seemed more important than quality...More
