“It'll cost you--but its good.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012

We didn't expect each dinner to run $39 a plate and up so it was a bit of a sticker shock. Ambiance was very nice. Staff was a little pretentious but polite. The food was to die for though! Don't miss desert. If you love good food--you won't be dissappointed.

“best steak ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

I have eaten at the Chop House twice. Once with lots of notice and had a resevation for 730 pm. The table was ready on time and we were seated with good service and treated very well. The food was excellent.

The second time was on a whim. We called ahead at about 5 pm and were told that the earliest available table was 930. A bit late (unless you're Spanish) but we enjoyed the first time so much we took it. we arrived at 8 and spent time in the bar but our table was ready early so not bad. Again the best steak in chicago if not all of North America.

I don't go to Chicago much but when i go next I will be going her to the best steakhouse ever!!

“Classic Steak House”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2012

Ate here over Thanksgiving weekend. Wanted a classic steak house and this just what we hoped for. Wine was excellent, had the filet and it was cooked perfect and tasted great. Waiter was excellent, very helpful and not pushy as others have described

“Average Steaks For Exorbitant Prices”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2012

First off, I would like to say this place does have good food. But the value is absolutely horrible. The most humbly priced steaks here are both more expensive and of a lower quality than substantially better Chicago steak establishments. You could easily have two to three steak dinners of arguably better quality at Gibson's, Ditka's, Joe's, G&G's or Morton's for the price of one here. This place is for tourists (located near the Rain Forest Cafe and the Hard Rock Cafe) who do not know what they are doing. I also found the waiters to be snobby and drinks to be weak.

This place is outrageous both expense and low quality for the expense. I will never go here again.

Tourists, look elsewhere for a great Chicago steak experience.

“Overrated tourist trap”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

Looking for an authentic old-style Chicago steak house, this spot was recommended by an obviously ill-informed friend. The atmosphere was "faux-old" and tries a little too hard to be authentic when it's not, really. The room was stuffy, with tables pressed too close together. The cacophony of the room once it filled (with tourists) was too noisy for a conversation. The food was mediocre, despite a big show of the meat before cooking. The service, however, too be fair, was spectacular. Very attentive without being overbearing. While I waited for my table I enjoyed the company of the bartender also very attentive and hard working.
