Two couples visited Barclay's for a recent dinner. One of the couples lives in Oak Park and has eaten here previously and picked Barclay's as our location for dinner. I really wanted to like Barclay's but discovered that I did not like the food here at all. I had the pork chop and a squash salad. My pork chop did... More

Enjoyed the caprese flat bread, burger/pulled pork slider combo and death by chock oats desert. I was torn between having a burger or the pork sliders. Then I saw the option to combine them with the 4 slider option. Love that! The burgers were a bit bland but the pulled pork was great. Death by chocolate desert was excellent. Service... More

Barclays is one of our family favorites. My husband and I eat there at least once a week. Family and friends often join us. Food is great, servers and bartenders are great too. It opens at 5pm, no lunch. The also have a good happy hour which includes oysters!

We went there twice, once for dinner and once for drinks. The food is just average. The service is ok. But the bar is very nice and comfortable.

The food was very delicious and the staff friendly. We enjoyed the outdoor seating area and had an excellent meal in a peaceful setting.

Varied menu with daily specials. The restaurant is lively, but quiet enough for conversation. Our multi-generation party left happy. The sangria is worth going back for.

Before I say anything, I should mention that this review is mostly about the steaks that Barclay's serves because that is all our party had to eat off the menu. And I'm really glad we did! We didn't order any appetizers, instead we dove straight into the steaks. We ordered a 16oz Delmonico rib-eye and one of their specials; an... More

I recently read a review from eclaccia and can't believe the negative dishonest comments. Mike and Joe are the most honest bartenders in town. Who are you and where do you come from? Barclay's provides a great environment and is a regular stop for members of the Oak Park and River Forest community. I am disturbed that someone would make... More

Horrible service and dishonest employees. The staff is completely rude. Ordering a drink at the bar is impossible. The food is average. However, the most disturbing part of this joint is that they are dishonest. I left a 50 percent tip and the bartender added an additional $5 to my tip. When I realized this after comparing my receipt to... More
