High Prices, Great Service. Nice fish dishes, but small sized. Recommend for going out. Great Parking. Clean bathrooms.

If you are looking for a casual restaurant with good seafood, this is the place. Famous for its fresh seafood and delicious garlic roles, it is the best seafood restaurant in Chicago area.

Apparently we're the only people in the northern suburbs of Chicago who have not previously been to Bob Chinn's Crab House, which is set up to served about a thousand people each evening. Needless to say, a place this popular is doing something right. It's not fancy - no linen on the tables - but they do serve a 22-ounce Mai-Tai for six bucks, which one doesn't seen downtown. An extensive menu of fresh fish flown in from both coasts as well as crab (six kinds) from Alaska, lobster from Maine and South Africa, steaks (why would somebody order steak in a crab house?) that looked pretty good, and authentic key lime pie. Dinner for two with drinks and dessert was $85 and well worth it.

I've always enjoyed Bob Chinn's for special occasions, they are very expensive. Now they have a lunch menu with good dishes under $10. There's fish of the day that can be fried or broiled. Pasta and assorted other choices. There are also items that are in the $11 -$15 range for more choices. It is now one of my favorite places to go for lunch without breaking my budget.

My husbands sisters and brother flew in from Ireland and England to surprise him for his Birthday. His favorite place is Bob Chinns and they have all dined with him there over the years. So I made arrangements for the surprise birthday dinner there. It was the best choice I could have made. The food as always was perfect no matter what you ordered. The wait staff was exceptional helping with app. that would be good, friendly, fast and when one dish came out that one of the staff feel wasn't up to Chinn's standards he took it back immedaitely and returned with a new one quickly. Drinks and food for 22 people without a hiccup!!!! Thank you chris D. and the the lovely lady server.
