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!

BAD service-food "eh"-priority reso list is a hoax to get you to wait @ bar! Grossly outdated décor!

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.

We went early for New Years Eve. Food was excellent. Always is. My husband was disappointed because they were out of Lobster Bisque but he settled for the Crab Bisque instead. They have the best seafood in the area along with Bob Chinn's in Wheeling. We took some friends a few years ago for New Years Eve dinner. We told... More

My husband and I had just returned from vacation and wanted some good food. I wanted surf and he wanted turf so we decided on Chinn's and we were not disappointed. The food was delicious and our server Randi (female ) was awesome. If you want good food with a layed back atmosphere then this is your place.

We have been to Chinn's many times, and on this particular Friday night, the kitchen was extemely slow. Our food took over 35 minutes to arrive at our table. The server noticed this, then checked with the kitchen, and our food was in front of us in minutes. Our server offered us free desert because it was on the house.... More

Living in the Chicago-land suburbs choices for FRESH sea food are slim. Therefore, I am a huge fan of Chinn's 34th St. Fishery. If you love fish (fresh Florida grouper, Louisiana blue crab claws, Alaskan Halibut) this is the place for you. The "bills of lading" that are stapled to the front of the lobby wall show you that your... More

I am from out of town and very hungry so I looked this up on Google Maps. The restaurant is OK but need some help with decor. The food was better than average but at $49 for a plate of King Crab, I thought that was a little too steep. The crab was good, fresh but not the sweetest that... More
