Barclay’s American Grille, located in the Carleton Hotel, opened its doors in November 2009, with much anticipation and excitement. The restaurant went through an extensive restoration, as well as, a new concept, focusing on affordable, casual dining. The decor blends contemporary and traditional styles resulting in an inviting and comfortable dining experience with exceptional food and service. It is the perfect gathering place for friends and families.
Offering classic American cuisine “with a twist“, Barclay’s American Grille has established itself as “the place to be” in Oak Park. Signature burgers, BBQ ribs, fresh seafood and an array of steaks and chops are grilled to perfection and served with our amazing homemade sauces and creative toppings.
The bar offers multiple high definition flat panel televisions to cheer on your favorite team. Enjoy a burger in the bar area or a perfectly prepared steak in the dining room. Barclay’s American Grille offers a diverse and affordable menu. The Barclay Room is available for private dining and larger parties and during the summer months, dine al fresco at our outdoor patio.
The new decor has an upbeat vibe, yet still pays respect to its historical past. The restaurant was named after Village historian and bicycle shop owner, Philander Barclay, who lived in Oak Park from 1878 to 1940. Many of his photographs depicting the glory days of Oak Park are displayed on the walls.
