Family dinner at Benny's. Third visit. One traditional steak, one natural steak (no antibiotics, etc.), one order scallops. All unreal. Relaxed, professional service. RPM has a more hip atmosphere, but wasn't quite as good and was more expensive (ate there last night). Love Benny's. Enjoy.

We are celebrating again on our special day, just a block or two from our hotel this year. I had heard about this place, finally made it here with my husband, and it was a wise choice. The decor is very elegant, we were seated in a nice location, and with soft romantic music for Valentine's day. Our male waiter... More

I must sound like a stuck record, but so many of the places I am taken to in Chicago offer a pretty decent, routine kind of steak, and fall down on many of the alternative mains. I like steak occasionally and have had good ones here, but nothing to write home about. Fish here disappointed. I don't know where the... More

Referred to by our hotel concierge. He highly recommended and he was right on. Elegant dining. Wait staff was really knowledge about steaks and explained choices well. Everything was good and the steaks were impeccable. Ambience was unique. There is live piano music which was kind of why we went but we were seated in a back dining area that... More

I got a NY strip and my husband got a filet. I should have gone with the filet. My strip was chewy with fatty/gristly areas. Our waitress was way over the top, backing away from us and bowing after she came to the table. Not sure what that was all about, but it made us very uncomfortable. Asparagus and hollandaise...

Had a very good dinner there. Very expensive - around $250 for the two of us. Each had a glass of wine, one entree, and a side. Had a nice band, but it was loud- hard to hear our conversation. Waiter was New but great. My steak was fabulous, though my wife did hit care for her lamb chops.

We had 16 people in our group. The wait staff was extremely attentive and accommodating. Everyone was thrilled with their menu selections and the tenderloin I had was the best steak I have ever eaten. Prices are on par with other top steak restaurants.

Benny's was recommended to me whilst staying in a nearby hotel. I had not booked, but there was no problem with finding me a table straight away. The food was wonderful and I especially enjoyed the truffle fries. I found the service to be attentive and swift with good recommendations - just what I was looking for. In my opinion... More

My daughter and son-in-law chose this lovely restaurant for my 61st birthday dinner and it was perfect. The steaks were excellent, the ambiance perfect for a special occasion and our service was outstanding. One of the things that made the night so special was when our table was presented with menus printed with personalized birthday wishes. We enjoyed the side... More

We selected Benny's as it was a quick walk from the hotel we were staying at on Wacker. A snowy night in Chicago made for a nice walk. We came here with our kids. For apps we started with oysters, calamari and shrimp cocktail. We enjoy the smaller size oysters so our waiter ensured our ask was honored. They were... More

Description
At Benny's Chop House we pride ourselves in serving the very best - of everything. All our steaks are 100% USDA Prime, the United States Department of Agriculture's absolute highest quality grading. Less than 3% of all steaks qualify for this exclusive grading. At Benny's you'll be served the most tender, juicy and flavorful steak you've ever experienced. Enjoy! Our seafood from our American East and West Coast Oysters to our Ora King Salmon or our Alaskan Halibut, is the freshest, seasonal seafood and is flown in daily. Our vegetables and sides change with the seasons for maximum flavor and feature local, Midwestern ingredients at their very best. And, as always, save some room for dessert. Our signature S'mores Milk Chocolate Cheesecake and Banana Cream Pie with caramelized bananas are not to be missed. Not to be outdone, our wine, craft beer, and bespoke cocktail offerings are unmatched. We have been recognized by Wine Spectator Magazine for three years in a row, (2012, '13, and '14,) for our extraordinary collection of 1500+ wine labels. Our craft beers are a representation of the world's finest breweries and our creative team of mixologists create unique craft cocktails to match the season. Children are always welcomed at Benny's Chop House and we offer a full children's menu featuring the perfect mix of favorites and variety.
