A Real Chicago feel.

This traditional Chicago steakhouse is easily reached, because it is really only about A block south of Michigan Ave, right in the middle of "mag mile". The steaks are great as is the outstanding wine list. The wine Markup is as serious as is the wine list. I think it's geared more to those on a... read more

My wife and I were looking for a fine dining experience in Chicago and Benny's certainly fit the bill. Our server was extremely pleasant and knowledgeable in providing recommendations regarding the entire menu. We enjoyed the oysters (East Coast) and salads (grilled Caesar and Heirloom tomato) tremendously. My rib steak was done perfectly and my wife's lamb was grilled to... More

We had a wonderful meal at Benny's. It was our last night in Chicago and decided that we needed to experience the "Chicago steakhouse". It's definitely a splurge, but well worth it. We had the Lyon salad to start, very tasty. We shared the aged ribeye, which was probably the most high quality cut of meat either of us had... More

We love a great Steak House and this was one of them. Benny’s was full of Chicago charm. Our waitress was very nice and timed everything perfectly! We started with the Calamari which was lightly breaded and melted in your mouth. Then we shared the Burrata Salad and Lobster Bisque which was outstanding. It wasn’t a very heavy bisque and... More

Ever go to a place once and think, "that was really good but they couldn't do it again." Well that's what I said after visiting Benny's the first time. I came back a second time (from Michigan) and sure enough ... they did. Both times I got the New York strip steak and both times it was cooked perfectly and... More

We stumbled across this place walking back from a disappointing visit to the Trump Terrace and it was AMAZING!!!! The staff was wonderful. Seriously we had the BEST waiter, ever. Ever. The food was fantastic. We felt like we were eating in an old school old Chicago Chop House back in the day. MUST GO AGAIN!!!

We were from out of town and went to Benny's for the first time based on reviews. It did not disappoint! Dan Forsythe was our waiter and he was very knowledgeable and courteous. He recommended a very nice wine to pair with my ribeye and my wife's filet. He also recommended the bone marrow butter sauce that was excellent. We... More

The food and service were both good, but did not meet with the expectations based on other reviews. While the asparagus was good, the truffle fries were only slightly warm and disappointing. The dry aged ribeye was recommended to me; it was cooked perfectly, but both the taste and texture were just average at best. Chicago is known for great... More

What a great place for perfect steaks, service and Father's Day celebration. We were surprised with their awesome bacon dish compliments of the restaurant for Father's Day. We have been there several times and have always had the perfect meal. The best steaks in Chicago. Hats off to Benny's !!!!
