Locally owned and convenient location close to the river. Reservation suggested and seated pretty quickly. Lots of service personnel and managers walking around the floor. Noise level is quite high, that's only complain. Beautiful setting and mostly for business clients. Tables close to each other. Quite busy on Thursday night. Server is quite attentive. Meals service is quite slow for... More

Strolling through the Magnificent Mile area of Chicago, I take it slightly broader than Michigan Avenue, you will find a range of middle and top class restaurants. Benny's Chophouse is hidden just of Illinois street near Michigan avenue. The entrance is steep but you are welcomed by some nice hostesses. The web information shows reasonable pricing and good atmosphere but... More

The menu is the standard you expect in a medium high level American steakhouse . I had a ribeye steak and a roasted potato which were OK but not memorable. The filet of my wife was over cooked. The price we paid was frankly excessive for the quality of the meal.

We had a wonderful evening celebrating our Mom's 60th birthday. The night started off with cocktails at the bar while we waited for our table to get ready. I had a fantastic gin drink that had a eucalyptus leaf in it. It was delicious. We had the carpaccio and also the bacon dish for an appetizer. The carpaccio was fantastic... More

Benny's Chop House was an outstanding restaurant. We went for our anniversary and were not disappointed. They gave us special menus with "Happy Anniversary" at the top which was a nice touch. From the moment we entered the restaurant, we were made to feel so special. Our waitress, Luisa, I can't say enough good things about her, she is top... More

Benny's is a must if you visit Chicago. Convenient location in River North area. We shared a grilled Caesar salad, sides and a superb dry-aged cowboy cut ribeye. The S'mores Cheesecake is a must (if you have room to spare, if not, do it anyway). The service was excellent and the decor is inviting and has a great vibe. The... More

I knew the food would be good but what surprised me was that the wait staff didn't blink an eye when we asked to split the meal. There were 4 of us ordering 2 meals. The portions were still satisfying and most flavorful. The atmosphere for mid afternoon was on the quiet side but appreciated. Drinks were kept full without... More

Benny's was a short walk from our hotel and we wanted to try a Chicago chop house. Benny's was crowde but the wait staff was good and attentive without being overbearing. The steaks were literally melting without much need to chew. Sides were also very good. I didn't find the desserts appealing. -- too sweet and gooey sounding, but the... 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.
