Our party of 6 had a very nice table that was ready when we arrived (our reservation was at 6 pm). All staff treated us quite well and everyone was personable and helpful. The food was nicely prepared (our choices ranged from salmon to whitefish to steak to lamb chops to pasta) and everyone liked their entree. The appetizers were large enough that two was sufficient for the group. Very nice wine list.

Although the restaurant started to get crowded about 7 pm, we were not rushed and had a very pleasant time. We left about 8:15 and by then the restaurant was very crowded with the voice level rising. Given the popularity of this restaurant, earlier reservations should be made.

I had requested a certain area in the restaurant because my family was celebrating an engagement. The restaurant was more than accommodating and had the table ready an hour in advance. We had an 18 month old toddler so we didn't want to be crowded in the main dinning room. The servers were on top of everything, no one had an empty drink and the food came out without much wait. This was my third time at this establishment in the past 3 months and they have been very accommodating every last time. The overall experience was delightful and we did not have to worry about a thing.

We have been to EJ's Place numerous time and it is consistently excellent. The food is fantastic, the service is amazing and it is an overall positive experience! I would highly recommend EJ's Place for almost any occasion. The portions are very generous. The side dishes are delicious. Valet parking makes it very easy. The best!

The service is OK, but the team is pretty gruff given that we are paying $70-$100 / head.
Food is good. Kitchen is well established with consistent high quality.
The staff is pretty abrupt. It always seems they want you to order quickly and leave quickly. It's not consistent with the pricing and the atmosphere.

I usually give a much better review after dining here. Unfortunately I cannot this time. Nothing was quite as good as we have come to expect from many previous experiences.

Off night. Waiting 45 minutes after reservation to be seated. Waited another 15 minutes for water and menus. Ordered filet. Big mistake. Undercooked and absolutely NO flavor. Sent back - burnt to a crisp.

We do love EJ's and have celebrated many family occasions there. We typically visit in the winter when it is festive and decorated for the holidays. The mood has always been lively, yet not noisy or distracting. We could enjoy our meal and our conversation. This past weekend we took friends there from out of town for a birthday celebration. The place was packed and incredibly noisy. There were so many people at the bar waiting for tables that they imposed on the seated diners. Waiters had limited mobility in and through the aisles. My husband and friend were seated on the aisle and were constantly being bumped into and spilled on. It was incredibly distracting and took away from our enjoyment of the meal (which was really very good!) and the conversation we expected to enjoy was left to shouting across the table. I don't know how they can solve this, but it may certainly taint my decision to go there on a Saturday night or dinner in the future.

The King Crab Legs were delicious but not a lot of value for the market price. Based on price of $110 I would expect far more crab legs than I received.

We hadn’t been to EJs for a while, primarily since we frequently have dinner out with a young grandchild. For our anniversary, we decided that we wanted to dine. So we went back to EJs. The food and service were wonderful. Our server realized that a full portion of the chicken with peppers was much too large for one in our party and suggested getting a half portion. It was outstanding and we still went home with leftovers. The strip steak was tender and done perfectly. Our server saw us opening anniversary cards and brought a dessert with a candle for us which we appreciated. We will be back soon.

The food is excellent and the portions are large. The martinis are expertly made and the homemade desserts - particularly the key lime pie and tiramisu- are truly something special. The downside is the prices are quite high, and the noise level is pretty high too.

Grandson seated before our arrival at first table in extra room. Not our favorite room but we went with the flow. Waiter, Dave, very personable and efficient. Entrees served before Caesar salad finished. Prime Rib and pork chops accompanied by potatoes divine. Desserts delicious. No second cup of coffee offered. Felt like they wanted to turn the table.

underwhelming at best. The new York strip was tough and had that sinewing marbeling that you couldn't cut through.

The filet had no taste at all.

Even the creamy garlic salad dressing tasted like paste.

We do not even drink alcohol, and the bill was $170 . with tip. Waiter was very good.

As I drove home past CULVERS , I wish I'd eaten there:)

My bad.

Very disappointing meal, we ordered small filet and got strip steak . It was a tough piece of meat, hard to cut, tough to chew. As a loyal customer, I’m very disappointed!

Service was very slow initially.
The waiter had to ask us to repeat our drink orders more than once.
Ordered a steak med rare -charred - was delivered med well - not charred
The waiter wanted to look at the steak to be sure - then he had the manager come over to verify.
I did not want it recooked - everyone was already eating
the bill came and the steak was still on the bill.
I showed it to the waiter who immediately removed it from the bill.
Most of the other entrees were good- but not taking care of a poorly cooked $58 steak was disappointing.

Was very good. We went on a Sunday evening and wasn't very crowded which was nice. Filet Mignon was huge, but great, so Petite Filet probably would have satisfied. Service was great and very fast, very attentive which I appreciate. Plenty of bussers around to keep things flowing at the table.

peas and onions and EJ's slaw awesome.
