Can't go wrong

Good solid steak house. Menu is what you expect, staff is very friendly and it's old chicago. Wine selection by the glass is really good. Only drawback is the steak option is a small filet or big everything else. But, if that's the only complaint it's not to bad.

I'd been to the Chop House before, and always enjoyed it. Let's get the cost issue out of the way: yes, it's an expensive place to eat. That said, the portions were well worth it. The wine list is quite varied. Perhaps somewhat overpriced in some cases, but not overly or glaringly so. The steaks were prepared to perfection; all... More

You can't leave Chicago without having a great steak and this place is a nice change from the "name" high-end steak houses. Even though I was solo, I got a very nice table at a respectable distance from the piano player. There's a nice assortment of wines by-the-glass and you can try some before you buy. The server was very... More

I went with a group of 5. By far those who had steaks were the happiest. great service. Amazing Caesar salad, my lobster bisque was above average, though the potato pancake was a big disappointment ( it was more of a compressed cake of hash browns and seriously overcooked), the sides were generous and good, and the baked Alaska was...

Very disappointed. Two steaks had to be sent back. The first filet was microwaved, it must have been made earlier. Unfortunately, this place has been going down hill over the years. We won't return. Plenty of other steak houses in Chicago for better value.

This is the best steak house in Midwest! We travel frequently and try highly touted restaurants and this is by far the best steak house in Chicago and Midwest. The wine was incredible and the fillet was to die for. It was perfectly prepared and the service was top notch. The prices are a little high but definitely worth it.... More

I first dined there based on the recommendation of a colleague. I was pleasantly surprised. The menu is small and uncomplicated, but everything I've tried is delicious and well prepared. This place has one of the best dry aged porterhouse steaks I have had in a long time. The seafood is very good also. I recommend the broiled lobster tail.... More

We ate here in 2011 and agreed that it was the best steak we had ever tasted. There was no doubt that it was our first choice for my son's 30th birthday this July. This time the restaurant lacked atmosphere, not many bookings. Although the service we received was really good we did not feel as "spoilt" as our first... More
