Birthday dinner tradition for years...

My wife and I choose to eat expensive dinners only occasionally... one of the places we choose is Chinn's in Lisle and it's been our go-to restaurant for birthday dinners between our two months of Nov. & Dec. I personally like a place that offers crab legs the traditional way and my wife needs a... read more

This establishment has been operating in Lisle, IL for nearly 20 years and everyone that dines there is a repeat client! They don't take reservations so the wait for a table is a little long, but well worth the wait. You start by fresh baked garlic rolls (baked right in the dining area) and they taste as great as they... More

The food is mediocre & bland. The servers aren't overly friendly or helpful. We have eaten here 3 times...I guess in hopes it will get better! Or to use up our groupon's! They are done & so are we! Sorry...much better fish houses around town!

Went for a Saturday lunch after receiving a recommendation from wife's co-worker. Initial feeling walking in the door was that the restaurant seemed a bit dated but could get past that if the food was good. Noticed a large window in back of restaurant that had a view of the rear of the location and garbage dumpsters. Not sure what... More

I've been coming to this restaurant for year's. Greatly disappointed! Quality of food has definitely gone down. No flavor and cold. Will not be returning.

My husband and I have been dining at chins. For year's. The quality of the food has definitely gone down. $60.00 lunch that literally made me nauseated. Now I know why they are on Groupon. :(

When you first enter the restaurant you are greated by the Owner Great Personality. As well as the Managers, Hostess and all the other Waiters. They make you feel like part of their Family :) We had the pleasure of having Natt as our server. He greated us with a smile and has a great personality. He always checked on... More

I would rate it with one more mark but the inside is just a bit dated. The fish choices are flown in daily and outstanding. I would suggest a Mai tai or maybe even two but maybe a cab would be a good idea if you have more. The garlic roles are fantastic. It is a lively place and can... More

Excellent fresh fish flown in daily. They have great cooked vegetables as a side as well as new potatoes. The fish specials are usually a good choice. Off the non-specials menu, I love the barbequed shrimp - subtle barbeque sauce that is excellent. The stone crabs are great when in season. The restaurant is extremely loud so not a good... More

Consistently good. Fresh seafood, the bill of ladings are hanging by the door. Very casual atmosphere. Service is good. Also has a very good bar and drink menu. Key Lime Pie Martini is one of my favorites. A cup of the seafood gumbo is really a bowl. So filling and tasty. Sometimes they offer groupons, which are a great deal.
