A local restaurant operated by members of the same family since opening umpteen years ago. Recently renovated. Nice updated menu. Good food and good service. Very dependable and a nice place for breakfast or lunch. Many locals go at least weekly, some daily. So it...More

Serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. Food is ok, not great. Spotty service. OK for an inexpensive meal in a sit-down location. Have a limited alcohol offering. No real bar.

My first time! Skillets are great! Good service, fair prices, family oriented but good for conversation. Disappointed with the coffee, it was too weak, hopefully it's not always like that.

We have dined at Glen Oak as guests several times. We recently ate in the restaurant on a holiday weekend. The seating was quick, and the initial water and drink service was swift. Our table ordered individual glasses of white and red wine, and the...More

Glen Oak is a longtime institution in Glen Ellyn. It is a pleasant, coffee-shop type of menu and environment. You can count on good service, not flashy but nicely prepared food and conversation-friendly. There's not a whole lot more to say about it, but I...More
