Great seafood

While Chinn's doesn't have the best atmosphere and is dated, they do offer great service and their seafood selections are very good.

So we have heard about this place for a long time and decided to give it a try. It's busy, they do a great business. We found the service a little lacking. Slow for getting waited on, slow to get refills, etc. The food, we had calimari and King crabs, was ok. My wife liked her crab legs, my first... More

You could sit here and eat the garlic buns that they serve when you sit down. I ordered the Seafood Italiano in a garlic broth. Delicious! Huge scallops, mussels, clams, shrimp all boiled in a garlic broth and served with Angel Hair pasta.

Foods are excellent, especially lobsters. I love garlic breads that comes with. They have also grapefruit beer which is wonderful. Everything was great except price. Expensive restaurant but not quite compare to other sea food restaurants.

We have been going to Chinns for more than 15 years. It is a well run restaurant with a solid menu of seafood items. We typically order Monchong or Halibut char grilled. Absolutely delicious. Comes with very good white rice and vegetables. Last night I had the shrimp vermicelli which consisted of lots of shrimp tossed with the clear glass... More

We dined at Lisle Chinn's several times a year for the past 15 years. It is by far the freshest seafood joint in southwest DuPage County. Fish and crabs flown from Alaska to ORD on weekly basis. When the large or jumbo dungeness crabs are available, it is quite a feast. We order it with garlic style, or scallion and... More

This place is pretty meh. I had the blue crab claws which while very fresh, they were swimming in a watery buttery something or other. The crab cakes were very thick and slightly greasy/oily, with not much flavor. Their garlic rolls were however, delicious and my rib eye was better than your average restaurant. My husbands strip though, was very... More

We had lunch/dinner here in the mid-afternoon. It was not crowded. We had 2 orders of the fresh clams (6 per order). I had the 10 oz lobster tail (this was on the dinner menu) and it was the best I've had yet. Cooked to perfection. Also ordered the fried scallops with side of pasta - also cooked just right....

We ate dinner there last night (Friday night). The parking lot was packed, but we were seated pretty quickly. The adults in our group started off with the Mai Tai pitcher, which was excellent. There was more than enough for the five of us. The rolls were superb. I had the Australian lamb with Alaskan king crab. It was the... More
