I don’t come here often, and each time I do I wonder why I didn’t go to Shaw’s out here in the burbs. The food is good but not exceptional, and the setting is more barn type than high-end, to match the high prices- like...More

My family and I have been going to Bob Chinn's since we moved to the area in 2011. It's a big place with lots of tables & is very lively. It's not so loud that you can't have a conversation, but also loud enough that...More

Went to Bob Chinns (again) on our most recent trip to Chicago. My wife and I always get a salad bar and split an order of King Crab Legs, maybe 2-3 pounds of meat. Great seafood in the Midwest.
