Very good food, great biscuits, lobster bisque, shrimp enchilidas, oysters, goat cheese bruschetta, and yummy desserts!! Seriously, everything is so yummy!!!!!

We come here all the time and have even held events here. My only bad experience was during a busy night they seemed to be short staffed and we felt somewhat neglected. Our server brought us over a discount card for our next visit without us having to say anything.

The sweet biscuits served before our meal were definitely the best part of the meal - very tasty and fresh out of the oven. Then, it was all downhill from there.

My halibut nicois was not really up to snuff and my mother's ahi tuna was not very fresh at all despite claims to have fresh seafood imported daily. The halibut nicois had too much sauce for my taste and it overpowered the flavor of the fish and vegetables. Our server was nice, though he seemed to hover a bit, asking use several times if our food was okay. We didn't have the heart to tell him that we weren't satisfied at all because he seemed to eager to please.

Next time I'll just fill up on biscuits.

Pros: Fresh biscuits to start your meal

Cons: Seafood is not all that great

We've gone here with a group of friends for the past 5 years. We like that they offer alcoves where you can pull the curtain and have privacy. They have outstanding fresh seafood and a wonderful wine list. They keep bringing the best tasting biscuits, everything we've ordered has been great. Always satisfied, this is a great place.

Braxton's is a wonderful restaurant, specializing in seafood. The entrees have a complexity of flavors, colors and textures. Everything I have ever had there is impeccable. Their breakfast and meat entrees are also beautifully presented and seasoned. Their twilight menu ( in by 6pm) is a special favorite with us- especially since it is an all day menu on Sundays. The menu has a soup or salad, entree and dessert for 18.95 - but lest you get confused and think this is your American diner style meal - the choices for soups include lobster bisque and the house salad has a variety of baby greens, including some purple lettuce complete with crumbled cheese (goat cheese, I think) cherry tomatoes, pine nuts, dried cranberry and a balsalmic vinagrette. There are fish choices, shrimp, and scallops as entrees with a small upcharge only for the steak. The desserts include cheesecake every bit as good as any basic one at Cheesecake Factory. The general menu desserts are fabulous as well. I just loved the chocolate liquor cake -a chocolate "O". If that was not enough, there is live jazz in the bar on Friday and Saturday night- no cover charge! In the regular dining room, there is appropriate low key dining music at just the right volume that it creates a relaxing unobtrusive atmosphere for conversation. Even my severely hard of hearing uncle could enjoy a conversation in this atmosphere. The dining experience is very elegant and it is a great place to do a special occasion meal. The dining area is beautifully furnished with linen table clothes and comfortable, padded, solid wood chairs and moderately dim lighting - just for atmosphere.

I have been a regular at Braxton for a few years, and I'm definitely addicted to their soda biscuits and excellent Salmon dishes. After a long day at client In Lombard, all I wanted was a quiet good meal. I went to Braxton around 6:00 and asked for a table for one. The hostess asked me if I wanted to sit at the bar, and I answered no, I really wanted a quiet table. So she sat me at one of the noisy bar tables even though they have a large and beautiful dining room. When I explained I wanted one of the dining room seats I was told by the hostess there were none available, yet I saw couple after couple enter the dining room from the seat they gave me which overlooked the hostess station right next to the drafty door. About a month ago, I had the same experience so this is is not an accident, but consistently poor service.

I left there with a large headache and very irritated at the staff at not addressing the issue of finding a quiet dining experience for me. I like the food here but the service is severely lacking, particularly for the price. I don't know what has changed here , but I can no longer recommend this restaurant due to the lack of customer service.

Pros: great seafood, even better buiscuits

Cons: Service, Bad seating policies

Located in the Oakbrook Mall this is an excellent choice for fresh seafood and steaks. They offer the best calamari and fantastic desserts. There are often bar specials and happy hour specials including lobster tail. Often they have jazz music and there are tables in alcoves if you want privacy. The staff goes out of their way to please you and if you sign up for their birthday club, you receive a card for a free meal!
