Good Seafood, Good Service at a Reasonable Price

We had lunch recently at Chinn's and the experience we had was an exact duplicate to the previous time we ate here about six months prior. Our meal started with soup, I had clam chowder and my wife had the lobster bisque. Both were delicious and creamy, and when you order a "cup" its more like a... read more

Nprvl reviewed Chinn's service is slipping. I agree. Few servers for a busy Saturday night. Got our food almost 45 minutes. This resto is the only one on the area that's why people are saying it's the best- No competitor! If you've been in the different parts of the world this is simply nothing. Very basic and pricey for the... More

We've been eating at Chinn's for many, many years... often to celebrate special occasions. Serving fresh fish and seafood it is a bit pricey. Spotting a groupon we jumped at the chance to enjoy an old favorite at a bit of a discount. Unfortunately the entire experience was a huge disappointment. Service was awful compared to what it had been... More

Chinns is somehow related to the Chinns in Northbrook?? Fresh fish flown in daily and don't forget the garlic rolls. Cannot beat it for the seafood. Atmsphere id very basic so if you are looking for just great seafood you will be more than satisfied. great for lunch too!!

Eat here on a regular basis, we haven't found another fish place that is not charging outrages prices. I'll deal with the outdated decor, as long as the service & food continues to be good.

My husband and I love this place. We go here as often as we can. They fly their seafood in daily. It's fresh and the garlic butter rolls are to die for. The Mai Tai's are awesome too. I highly recommend. You can dress up or go casual. Great place

Only place in the area that I know that gets their fish flown in daily. Monchong is my favorite. Try getting that at Red Lobster! Excellent owners and we have always had fantastic service.

I love this place for enjoyable dining - the fish was so wonderful and fresh! You can't go wrong dining here. The owner is kind and courteous. I would love to go back - it's a little more expensive than most but I consider it a 5-STAR eating experience and eating alone was just fine! I would LOVE to go... More

I'll begin by saying that up until Saturday, 12/29/12, this was, by far, my most favorite restaurant based on their food, service, and overall dining experience. However, after our visit the other night I am on the lookout for a new special place. We took my mother, who absolutely adores seafood, for her 71st birthday. For the entire 45 minute... More

This place has the best of everything! The seafood is the freshest and largest in size you will find! The meat is absolutely mouth watering. The best garlic rolls around and the crab or lobster bisque will have your taste buds singing! Never had a bad meal here! The service is always wonderful!
