A great evening at Benny's

Started the evening around 6:30 in the bar with beer from Ohio and some of the most amazing oysters from Washington state. Then we settled in to the restaurant where our waitress told us about the specials of the day. We decided on the soft shell blue crab for an appetizer, this was a great choice... read more

We celebrated my husbands birthday at Benny's. They added special touches of a custom menu acknowledging his birthday and the dessert presented with a birthday message in chocolate. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. We were going to a folk concert after, so we were concerned about our attire. But any attire was welcome. We saw people in workout clothes,... More

First time at Benny's today--amazing. The atmosphere is classic, swanky, and highly well done. Wine list rivals many, and the atmosphere rounds the whole experience out. Large picture windows, dark wood, well dressed intelligent staff at your service really made for a fantastic lunch. The Lobster grille cheese, and hand cut fries-marvelous. Real succulent lobster, freshly cooked in each sandwich.... More

This was one of the best meals and great service EVER!. Our Server, Bar was outstanding. He explained in detail everything on the menu which we had questions about. Don't go to Chicago without a visit to Benny's Chop House.

My wife and I hoped to have a nice romantic supper. Instead we got a waiter that was not response to the needs of the customer. I ordered a bottle of wine and he brought me a glass. We have been shopping all day and wanted a bottle instead of glass! When he finally came out to check on us... More

My Wife and I took a last minute trip to Chicago from Minneapolis and searched Trip Advisor to find a couple good restaurants to eat at. We wanted to walk so looked for places that were close. This place showed up as the 3rd rated Steakhouse. We called a couple hours in advance and reserved a spot for 7:30. They... More

Benny's is a fine dining Chicago steak house. We made a reservation during the day we visited. The service was excellent. The food was very good. Each of us (4) had steaks of one sort or another. These were very good and perfectly cooked. The wine list is extensive. However I thought the restaurant failed on the value side -... More

Benny's was recommended by The Conrad Hotel. From the very moment we walked in the door, James the manager, ensured a fine dining experience. We were not celebrating a special event; however, Benny's made it seem we were special. We enjoyed our romantic dinner and I noticed other large business dinners near our romantic table. Beautifully appointed restaurant. Exquisite steak... More
