Ribs are excellent, lobster tails cooked to make you want more, very comfortable and relaxed atmosphere.

Since 1994, Select Cut Steak House in Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood has accumulated a loyal following with its prime steaks and famous burger that is rated among the top five in Chicago. Located at 2808 North Halsted, at Diversey, it is open from 4 to 10...Monday through Friday and 2 to 10 on Saturday and Sunday. My wife and I sampled the burger on another occasion. The quarter-pound steakburger with American cheese, grilled onions and signature peppercorn sauce is as good as advertised. The half-pounder with American cheese isn't bad, either. But we came for steaks this time. We started with shrimp cocktail, baked French onion soup and Caesar salad with romaine, croutons, parmesan cheese and Caesar dressing. For an entree, my wife chose the eight-ounce petite filet with bearnaise sauce and sauteed mushrooms. I opted for the 14-ounce New York strip with blue cheese and sauteed mushrooms. Yes, as the restaurant's website declares, it's a cut above the rest. For dessert, we shared a large slice of apple pie with vanilla ice cream and a portion of bread pudding. Chicago is known for its quality steakhouses. Select Cut Steak House is one of them. Without exaggeration, I firmly believe that you could visit a different steakhouse every night of the year and never complain. We always check reviews or consider friendly recommendations before making a reservation. Sure, there are steakhouses that don't pass muster. We don't go there. Over the years, we have never been disappointed.More

We had a group of 5 and wanted to try some midwestern beef. Rather than opting for a place that had $60 steaks and $12 baked potatoes we came here. It is not in the downtown/ritzy part of town. I would say it is one...of the nicer places in the neighborhood. Upon entering we found the ambiance to be on par with what we were expecting from a higher end eatery. There was a nice selection at the bar and the prices of drinks were excellent. The wine list was limited but offered a nice variety at fair prices. The steaks were of various types and sizes (including cut to order). They also came with basic side dishes (vegetable of the day and your choice of starch). Other items could also be added. The service was attentive and consistent. It may not be a place that Chicago is known for but it is a great option if you're looking for a great meal. You also have money left over for a night on the town. Good Job Select Cut!More

Not a very big place but it wraps around to the back. Holds 32 people. Steak show n tell before your meal was informative. Expensive but delicious. My drink cost half of what my meal did but the rumchata martini was good.

Restaurant has an old-school styled layout with a sports bar-themed bar. Wait staff were excellent and the price was very good for the quality and quantify of food. Try their kabobs - incredibly flavorful rice comes with the grilled vegetables and steak.

I wanted a steak; the seafood sounded tempting. Seems the Surf and Turf was on special. Decision made! The salad was fresh and plentiful, although the dressing was more Italian than Caesar (if ya think about it, Rome IS in Italy). Both the steak and...the lobster tail (nice size) were well prepared. The asparagus was particularly nicely cooked. I appreciated the attentive but not obnoxious servers. It was an excellent meal.More

I was truly impressed with not only the quality of the steak but that it was well priced. This place is a great place to relax and enjoy your meal. Select Cut Steak House does away with describing their steaks aging process and how they...are cooked (blaa, blaa blaa....). In addition all sides come with the meal so you don't end up paying $20 for 6 pieces of asparagus.More

I loved the gently cooked vegetables generously served on the side. This night, it was carrots and broccoli. His steak was perfectly cooked, and my half rack of ribs was more than I could finish. I had the steak fries, and they were good and...plentiful. The service was a little off, but we did arrive at 4:00, and I don’t think anyone was on their game yet. His coffee came out cold, and he actually had to get up and take his coffee up to the bar to get another cup. We were the only diners the whole time we were eating. We might return when they are a little busier, to see if it is different.More

Everything our party ordered was fabulous. Steaks, chicken, beef kabobs & desserts. However a bit on the pricey side. Entree, one drink & dessert for three was over $100.

we had the seafood there, the jumbo shrimp, and it was exceptionally good. nice and crispy, not too much batter. the french onion soup was delicious, and the atmosphere's quite nice at this place. I agree w/the reviewer who said this place was underrated. if...the shrimp was good here, i'd like to try the burgers.More

This is a neighborhood steakhouse you can skip. Honestly, the food was fine and the service was good, but the steaks weren't very flavorful and the prices are what you would expect to pay in a classier joint in River North. There was nothing wrong...with our meal, I just wouldn't recommend it or take people from out of town there and we have no plans to go back.More

We found this restaurant driving by back to the hotel, and decided to stop and try it. It was Sunday night and the restaurant was empty. But the food was delicious. Very honest, delicious local food. No disappointment.

I wrestled a little bit with this review due to an issue with our order. Also, I had to review this restaurant relative to its category not against downtown Steakhouses. This is a neighborhood Steakhouse in Lakeview not Gibson's, Ruth Chris, Morton's, Chicago Cut and...the like. I went with a friend for an early dinner before a Cubs game. We got a window table since it was so early. I started with a Caesar salad but the dressing more closely resembled a normal Italian dressing than Caesar. We both got NY strips. The cool thing about this place is there is a standard size for steaks on the menu in this case 10oz and 14 oz strips. You can add additional ounces for a couple bucks each. I went with a 16oz Strip my friend went 18oz. I had a side of rice (nothing special) and the squash along with sautéed mushrooms. I'd pass on the shrooms next time. The big issue we had was when the steaks arrived they were both ribeyes not strips. We mentioned it to the waiter and he said "you are right, you ordered strips". New steaks came as quick as possible and cooked perfect Med rare. I also got the peppercorn sauce which was just ok. So the steak was very good especially considering the price. The sides and salad were just ok. We also brought 2 bottles of wine and there was a reasonable $15 corkage fee. The waiter could not have been more polite and nice. That was actually the deciding factor in me giving 4/5 vs 3/5.More
