“Good but expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

We tried this restaurant once. The steaks were very good, however quite pricy. We were there early Saturday evening and we one of very few customers.

“Great Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012 via mobile

Had lunch at the Rosebud Steakhouse and loved it. They have a few entree sized salads, of which I had a delicious one with manchego cheese chicken and honey mustard dressing . My husband had the filet which was also delicious. Definitely recommend!

“King Crab Salad for Lunch!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012

The salad was extremely good, coupled with beefsteak tomatoes and mozarella. Was able to sit outside on a beautiful day in Chicago.

“Nice place but out of food on the menu.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012 via mobile

I went here yesterday with a large party for a business lunch. Nice restaurant atmosphere, it appears very nice. The waiter was nice, attentive, and effecient. The only problem that came up was the food. About half of our party ordered a special off the menu and we had to reorder since they were out of ingredients. One person in our party had to order a third meal option since her second option was also out of stock. It was kind of frustrating but everyone seemed to enjoy their food. I think we will go elsewhere on my next visit though.

“And a Rose It Is!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012 via mobile

The night I dined at Rosebuds Prime many specials were available, but since they specialize in prime beef I decided to try the ribeye and ordered a side of mac & cheese in lieu of a potato. It should be noted that everything at this restaurant is à la carte. First brought to the table was a great selection of fresh breads followed by the meal. The steak was cooked as ordered. Was very tender and had an excellent taste. The mac & cheese was brought to the table in a cast iron kettle that was baked until the cheese was golden brown. It was some of the best mac & cheese I have ever had and I highly recommend it over any of the other sides. The staff from the hostess, to the manager thanking me at the door upon leaving, were all very professional and provided excellent service. Prices are a little steep but remember you get what you pay for. If you want a great meal while in Chicago make sure to visit Rosebuds Prime.
