Went this past Friday evening (7/22/16) with a party of three. Since it was a Friday, we expected quite a wait for a table, but that wasn't the case. That doesn't mean they weren't busy either. Loved my food, as did the others, and I really didn't feel it was too expensive. While I can't remember our server's name, she... More

We had a family dinner with 10 people. Important to make reservations for that large of a party. We got seated right away but the wait can get long if you don't. Nothing tastes bad. Service was solid.

Bob Chin's is our go to place when we are in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago. Get here either early or late, prime time sinning there will be a wait. Even though this is mainly a seafood Resturant, the hidden secret on the menu is the Pepper Steak, it'll blow you mind! Great Resturant!!!! And ask for Russell or Gary

The seafood was not bad, nor particularly good. Service was sloooow! The waiter appeared to be hustling, so not sure why it took so long to get our food, and even longer to wait for our check. The quality of the food was roughly the same as Red Lobster. When you walk in, you have to follow signs and lines... More

We called ahead to save a couple of servings of Copper River salmon. They don't take reservations, but we were seated very quickly for a Friday night. The staff were friendly and energetic, knew the menu and ways to prepare the fish, and made excellent recommendations. All the meals were exceptional and our waitress made the evening very enjoyable. We... More

We returned to Bob Chinn's after moving away 18 years ago. Great to see a local business that has maintained their standards for patrons. We started our meal with the signature garlic buns, salad, crab nuggets, and ice cold beer. Our main course selections (grilled sockeye salmon and fried oysters were very tasty) kept us quiet as we gobbled them... More

I think this establishment needs to realize that not everyone is a regular. Having this been our 1st visit, we were not greeted with welcoming smile, rather with a sense of they had to seat us as fast as possible. And the waiter Fernando had no patience, with us and the large menu. He seemed irritated that we did not... More

This place has the fundamentals of a nice restaurant but the plastic plates, centerfold paper towels ( bathroom dispenser napkins) paper menus gave the impression of a quick serve cafeteria. My steak was similar to the quality of the frozen Obama steaks off a truck. Kids meals were over $9 each with drinks. Our meals were small portion and HIGH... More

How about some grossly overpriced food combined with extremely small sides and stale rolls? Well you have come to the right place. I wish I had my money back.
