Newly remodeled elmhurst institution

This place has always been a "go-to" for cocktails or a full Italian chophouse meal. The newly remodeled bar and dining room were a nice surprise and much appreciated. Nice Job!

Great atmosphere and service in a classic chop house setting. The appetizers were excellent.The calamari, blue point oysters, and table bread were awesome. We all got 8oz filets. Each steak came with broccoli, salad, and choice of steak fries, mashed potatoes, or baked potato. We all had the mashed potatoes. I was really expecting to be blown away by the... More

Great new, updated interior and ambiance. Wide open and bright. New music, views and attitude. Upgraded menu. An always good restaurant has become great. Steaks, pasta, shellfish are all winners but the double thick pork chop is special. It's tender and juicy and filling. A grand slam ! Paul N.

Enjoyed a bistro lunch of a Chopped Salad. The presentation was beautiful and lightly dressed with a vinaigrette. More chicken, bleu cheese, tomatoes, scallions, cucumbers, avocado, bacon, tortilla chips and asparagus than lettuce. Made for a refreshing meal on a hot day. My friend enjoyed the Steak Salad. Perfectly prepared steak served on a bed of fresh greens with fresh... More

Nice location, courteous service and friendly ambiance. Food was O.K. but no more. Overall impression: definitively overpriced for the value.

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, ended up having a very nice... 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
