Diner Reviews
  • "I brought my family to celebrate my son's 21st birthday. My son, who can be quite the restaurant critic, said he had nothing bad to say and everything was great...the only complaint he had later was that the chocolate cake (which was complimentary for his birthday thank you Kinzie) was too small. He ate the Tomahawk steak for his dinner, which he thoroughly enjoyed. Everything was great."

  • "We had a terrific experience at Kinzie Chophouse. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but is tastefully decorated inside. Our server was fantastic, very knowledgeable about the menu and answered any questions we had, made us feel welcome. Food was fantastic, steaks were amazing."

  • "We had an awesome experience at Kinzie! We had cocktails at the bar before dinner. Once we were seated at our table our waiter provided excellent service explaining in detail their steak choices by bringing out samples of each steak. He provided his recommendations. I had the cowgirl steak and it was delicious. Others in our party had the filet which they said was delicious as well. We had the side of mac n cheese which was very good. I highly recommend this restaurant and would definitely go there again next time I am in Chicago."

It had been almost a year until this recent visit and I'm happy to say it was as wonderful as ever. The staff is accommodating and the food superb, just as I remembered. Thank you again!"

  • "While visiting Chicago, my husband and I found Kinzie Chop House while exploring the city. We decided to enjoy a nice dinner our last night in town and booked a reservation on open table. When we arrived, we were greeted immediately and shown to our table. All staff we interacted with were very pleasent and attentive to our needs. Waiter was extremely knowledgable of steak selection and other menu items. The ambiance was great and meal/drinks were very much enjoyed! Perfect date night!!"

  • "Unlike the Bessemer Blast Furnace Steak places of recent times, this quiet gem is cozy, competent and compact. Service is well paced, steaks and all the food is perfect and the wine list is complete with out being over the top. A great find for couples up to may be 10 people. You can actually talk to each other without shouting. Love the place."

In the hear of River North and accessible commute and parking options and parking validation! Eat your hearts out, the portion sizes equate what you are dishing from your wallet."

  • "I have been coming to Kinzie since 2000 off and on. It is one of my favorite restaurants. Everything from the services, food, and backdrop is ideal for a first date, meeting a client, or hanging out with your friends. Try the blackened sea scallops, or the chicken pot pie, or simply one of the steaks. LOVE THE STEAKS. Dry aged stakes cooked perfectly is the biggest difference between a restaurant with quality and one that sets the standards."

  • "I had a great experience at the Kinzie Chop House. This was the perfect place to take my out of town family for a nice meal. We had a wonderful server. He was very informative, attentive to our needs, had a great sense of humor and was able to carry a conversation with my very talkative family. Our steaks were cooked to our specifications and were very good. We had a table near a window, but my one issue with the experience was that the seating was a bit cramped and the table was a little small."

  • "It was very crowded, and took us a while to even get a drink at the bar. Our table was delayed about 30 minutes...........and it was still fantastic. The bartenders and servers knew they were running behind and did everything they could to make sure we still enjoyed ourselves. Food was great, and priced fairly enough for a quality Steakhouse in a great location. Will absolutely go back."

  • "Second time dining at Kinzie, and it was once again nothing short of fabulous. Server seemed busy at first and we didn't see him much, but he more than made up for it once he was able to! We always recommend this restaurant to peoe and will certainly be returning. ALWAYS ask about the evening specials; they are always phenomenal"

  • "With so many chop houses in Chicago, a visitor must choose wisely. We've been to a lot of them over the years, but this was our first visit to Kinzie's. It was very good. Nice, well-stocked bar with nice ambiance, although prices for some of the whiskeys are way too high (experienced drinker). The main dining area was hopping with lots of energetic groups. Our server gave us a nice "visual rundown" of the various steaks Kinzie is known for, and they all looked great. We were coming off the weekend, so went in a different direction. We shared the tuna tartare appetizer, which was very good. My wife had the halibut dinner, and loved it. I had the calamari chop salad, and that was good too. Overall, a nice experience at Kinzie."

  • "Kinizie Chop house is a great restaurant. Service is always outstanding and very nice atmosphere. Great selection of steaks and prepared just as requested. We enjoyed the 14 oz Cow Girl and the Rib-Eye Fillet. We also enjoy their pastas- smoke salmon rigatoni and duck breast pasta. Has a quiet and romantic atmosphere."

  • "Our family of 4 dined there for my son's birthday. We normally wouldn't choose a chop house when dining downtown-but the birthday boy is a steak-lover. However we all had great meals- fish special and scallop appetizer were perfect for my daughter. Bone in filet and filet were tender and tasty love that you can get a variety of toppings and sauces,like the whiskey peppercorn. As for my son- the ironic thing was he could NOT chew a steak- or pretty much anything- because he was "jumped" 2 blocks from his apt. Luckily no broken jaw- just a broken nose. So he asked for a "rain check" when he can chew and swallow-and not be in agony as he salivated watching us eat filets! Since it was so good we are happy to oblige, and will be back soon."

  • "I don't think I've ever asked as many questions and took as Lon to order as I have at Kinzie. All the questions were encouraged and answered thoughtfully and thoroughly. The options for steak cuts were presented and described before we ordered allowing the choice of exactly what would make an excellent dinner. The bread, salad (wedge) and sides (creamed corn and creamed spinach) were as excellent as the steak. The wait staff was attentive and friendly eager to please and ensure the dining experience was perfect."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "Very good steaks and fish. The chicken pot pie is tasty but the fact that the crust isn't baked on to the pie but, rather, just sits there on top indicates that it's not made to order. Good wines and drinks. A very good Chicago-style steak house to have in the neighborhood."

  • "We went to Kinzie Chop House for our rehearsal dinner. The staff couldn't have been nicer. They made sure that we had everything that we needed, ensured that everyone's food was satisfactory, and overall, made the night spectacular. I'd recommend this restaurant to EVERYONE!"

  • "My husband and I loved Kinzie Chop House! I am a sucker for prime rib and it was wonderful! It was a larger cut than I am used to, but I made up for it by not getting a salad. My husband's filet was cooked perfectly too. We sampled a few of the complimentary sauces they provide and enjoyed the different tastes. The service was wonderful and our waiter was very knowledgeable and knew when to check on us and when to leave us alone. We would definitely go back next time we are in Chicago and have told friends to check it out!"

  • "Kinsey Chophouse was recommended to us by one of our favorite waitors in Chicago as being a lovely, romantic restaurant for our first dinner together after our marriage. We were definitely not disappointed! Our meal was spectacular! Every dish was carefully prepared and tasted even better than our expectations. Our service was exceptional, and our waitor not only took care of our every need, but he even brought out a special congratulations desert for us and secured us a taxi after dinner. We will definitely return the next time we visit Chicago!"

  • "Kenzie's is my steak house of choice. You can't beat the price for what you experience. If you have never gone to this steak house I highly recommend it. It is a good place for a date, but even better place to go to with a group. I've been to Chicago Cuts and other steak houses that compete with Kenzie's and I would rate Kenzie's at the top of my list. It is the cheapest, and the atmosphere is much more comfortable than most steak houses. I been to Kenzie's at least five times and each experience is better than the next. I highly recommend you go here."

  • "great waiter who was attentive to our group of six. He gave a wonderful primer on the types of steak available that was the talk of the table. None of us had gotten a 'primer' on steak before. We could hear each other talk, which is something lost on to many restaurants these days. Overall, a great meal and an enjoyable time"
