Love the feel of this restaurant! Service was terrific. We were worried that we would be underdressed in our hockey jerseys (we were eating before going to the Blackhawks game). We looked up the restaurant and it had $$$$ and sounded dressy. There were a lot of people in jerseys eating that night so don't feel like you need to... More

Went here on the recommendation of a friend who used to work in Chicago. A great local steakhouse with a wonderful atmosphere. Feels like you are walking into a friendly neighborhood bar. Greeted by the owner and many friendly waiters, all wearing crisp white coats. Warm cozy feel, great ambiance. We ate downstairs near the bar, and it was fun... More

We have had our Christmas party here every year for about 5 years and the food and service never cease to amaze me. A great place to eat any time of year.

If you want a restaurant that feels like a local Chicago steakhouse, this is your choice. Everyone who came in(except me) knew the owner and the waiter's name. My steak was done perfectly and, unlike NY steakhouses, it comes with sides as a dinner, so it was actually a" reasonably" priced dinner, considering it's a steakhouse. We stayed for hours... More

I know this is a Chicago institution, it's why we tried it.Super ordinary food and service for big bucks. Seated in a room without much atmosphere and a dishwasher rumbling on the other side of the wall. Ordered a Caprese salad to start and then when we ordered our main courses, we were told we'd be getting another salad. What?... More

You can never go wrong with an old school steakhouse.. This is an icon in Chicago.. Make sure you make a reservation well in advance to going. You wont be sorry.. The service is impeccable. I never fail to dine here when in Chicago.

We had dinner at Gene's Saturday night. The restaurant was packed with a line out the door from the moment we arrived until we left. We sat in the front room. We had a shrimp cocktail as our appetizer and some salad. We split a bone in filet . It was just perfect and delicious. This is a great restaurant... More
