Recently dined again with a Groupon for a surf and turf dinner. Really great deal. You can pick snow crab legs or a small lobster tail as your 'surf.' As always, great food and with a Groupon, a bargain. Otherwise, I think their prices are a bit high. But no complaints on the food - and garlic rolls are always... More

We have always enjoy eating at Chinn's 34th Street Fishery, the prices my be high, but the amount of food you get is worst every Penney. The food is great, I heard someone say Red Lobster food is better, I wonder what planet they come from, Red Lobster food is high and you still be hungry when you leave. Try... More

Almost the same as the original, but smaller. I have been here many times and have not had to wait for a table. I have the egg rolls as an appetizer they are very good. For dinner I always have the same thing Fried Sea Scallops they are delicious! Of course the garlic rolls they serve are great!

While prices have dramatically gone up, quality has equally receded. In season, I called to confirm in advance if soft shell crab was on the menu only to find they had ran out. My wife opted for the Shrimp De Jonghe which was dry and overly and wrongfully spiced. I chose the Snow Crab Legs in that I couldn't justify... More

Great restaurant in Lisle, Il. Always crowded so best to dine really early or go later. We usually go with our family when I'm in town visiting them. Last visit was this past Friday, and the place was packed. We had an assortment of appetizers that were wonderful. Mini crab cakes, Oysters Rockefeller, Fried Calamari. They were all wonderful. Most... More

Pretty good food, and usually not a long wait time. Prices are a little high, but if looking for this type of food, there is not a whole lot of alternatives in Lisle.

Rule number one-everyone in your lunch/dinner party must have a garlic roll-they are amazing and worth the need for extra breath mints. My absolute fav is the coconut shrimp with mango and papaya sauce-worth it! Don't go for the ambience-they need to update, but that only means they are spending all their time and efforts on your meal!

One of the great surprises in the "Chicagoland" Prairie Empire is this jewel of a seafood restaurant. While there are many contenders for excellence in Chicago, Chinn's is a standout because the quality is so unexpected and, at the same time, the service and variety are so understated. The best, but not the only, tasty and excellent choices that I... More

Food is outstanding, the service was a major disappointment I visited on Friday 17 January at around roughly 3:45/4:00 pm just a handful of people were dining at this early hour. I won't be returning.
