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

Fun, busy/hectic, loud, dark and pricy and the words that best describe EJ’s. The dinning room has a mountain cabin look and feel to it which contributes to a laidback, casual atmosphere. The service depends on how lucky you are - I’ve encountered both great/fun/efficient...More

From the outside, you can easily guess that this place dates back to '40s. Well kept, but nothing fancy at all. Once you find a spot amongst the high end cars and enter through the front door, you are transported back in time. The place...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

We visited EJ's place for both nights of our trip to Morton Grove. The food, wine and service were excellent both nights. We had three the first night and a group of 13 the second... Superlatives: Chicken & Peppers, Italian Sausage & Peppers, Veal Piccata,...More

Everything we ordered was awful! The salad was bland, the salmon was dry, the ribeye was flavorless (We asked about this since it was $67 for a terrible steak and they just said it was supposed to be like that...?). I guess the garlic mashed...More

If you like really large portions, then you'll like E.J's. Other than that, don't bother. There is nothing else to recommend this restaurant. I ordered spaghetti and meat balls. Both te pasta and the meat balls were over cooked, to the point of being mush....More
