We were looking forward to visiting this restaurant on our return trip. We ordered the Manhattan clam chowder soup but it was a big disappointment. It was all carrots and broth, nothing clam chowder about it. We mentioned this to the server. The lobster bisque arrived warm and not like the lobster bisques we are used to. The steak was... More

Living in the Chicago area, I have had the pleasure of trying many steak/chop houses. Benny's Chop House is definitely one I would recommend trying. The food was great! I like the fact that they offer waygu beef choices but the item that separates them from the other streak houses is their bacon! I've never had anything like it before... More

We stayed in the area and decided to try Benny's. I wasn't wowed. Not sure if it was because of timing or that my husband had jeans on but we were seated in the bar even though the restaurant appeared to have seats. Maybe it was our timing. They had a piano player which was nice. I see people raving... More

It was a quiet Friday for our dinner as the weather was 15 below zero. However, we had a great meal. The waiter took great care of my son and I. His recommendations were spot on. The bacon appetizer is truly something. Steaks were fantastic and so was the bread (unfortunately). Some mixed reviews on this place, but I have... More

Benny's is a Chicago ICON. Lots of history, but best thing is the Steaks! Service is good , Wine list was good as well.

Our party of three had natural steaks (no hormones), and they were cooked perfectly, as you would expect at a restaurant featuring premium steaks. Sides are served family style and the best we had was a side of house cured bacon with maple syrup ($15). It was the size of a pork chop, and we ate it with everything, Truffle... More

Benny's bills itself as one of the finest steak houses in Chicago and I would say that it delivers on that promise. It has a solid menu with a number of alternatives and has a very good children's menu. The service is what separates restaurants at this level and Benny's delivers. From the casual pacing to the meal to a... More

This five year old establishment appears to be straight out of a wonderful 30's caricature of a Chicago steakhouse: dark wood, dark lighting, big bar with live piano, colorful waiters, and booths where Tony Accardo or Gino (little banana) Riccio could surely be hanging out, But no, mostly fairly attractive middle aged groups without much gold neck jewelry on the...

Outstanding service and food. Our group had a mix of filet's, rib eye and pork chops and all were great. Side items are sharing sizes and the desert portions are enough for several people. We were all overfull when we left.

New years eve. Fantastic attentive service. We had filet steak dover sole and salmon. All were delicious. Lobster bisque very good but pricey. Root veggies good. Banana cream pie was great. Tried a new tequila shot. Good size pour. Drinks were very good. Will go back.
