Best Steakhouse in Elmhurst

It's been years since we ate at 100 South. The restaurant has since changed hands. I was leery about what to expect reading the one and two star reviews. It's sad that they were forced to review the service and not the food. Looks like that overshadowed their visits. We, on the other hand... read more

Had a very nice dinner with friends here. Excellent delmonico steak! Coconut crusted mahi mahi very tasty. Teriyaki salmon a bit overcooked. Entrees include soup or salad, plus potatoes and broccoli. Service was fine. Drinks average priced. Overall, I would recommend this restaurant. On the pricier side, but worth it. Caution: the online menu (accessed through the restaurant's own website)...

It is a bit of an old school feel when you are at 100 South. Over the past 8 years or so they have really amped it up here on the service and food. The owner, Rich, took a more active role and has many family members working with him now. We love the escargot, the sausage, the chop salad... More

We wanted to try this place for a while and figured last night was a good time. We were not that hungry but tried to order light but still ended up leaving with left overs because the portions are generous. My father had pasta ok it is a steak house but that is what he wanted. He had spaghetti and... More

We live in town and have eaten there twice. Both times the meals were good. Steak salad was good, martinis are good, steak was good. Service was also good. In other words, the place was fine -- nothing great or note worthy, but completely acceptable. A couple notes. The rest rooms are outside down a corridor, part of the building... More

I treated my wife to a birthday dinner at the 100 South Chop House after watching a movie at the nearby York Theater (only a few doors away). This was our first visit to the restaurant which has been in business for over 15 years. I must say that we had one of the best meals in a long time.... More

I have had the pleasure to dine at the 100 South Chop House a number of times in the past few years. Each time the experience has been pleasant, the food has been outstanding and the service has been great.

none of us having been there before. The experience was terrible from start to finish. We arrived at 7:19 for a 7:15 reservation. We were told to wait by the bar as we could see our already set table, and waited for fifteen minutes to be sat. This, however, wasn't very upsetting and we went with the flow. Our server... More

We were very disappointed. All the reviews said this was a very good place. It was not. The Chop Chop steak had a lot of gristle in it. The cavatelli was dry and, although the description said it was in a vodka sauce, it was not very tasty. When we asked to see the dessert menu, the server told us... More

By "hidden", I mean in plain sight on a corner of York Rd at the train tracks in downtown Elmhurst. A very nice atmosphere, excellent service and wonderful Italian food (along with other cuisine) will be memorable. Try it!!!
