I love Select Cut's ribs. Their
sides need some work but the ribs are great."

Very friendly environment, but I
suggest that you pass on the steaks and try something else."

This place is a fantastic
neighborhood location. The staff is always excellent and the food is consistently amazing."

Have been here quite a few times
live the good and great service "

A friend recommended the
restaurant. The food was very good. All four of us had steaks of different kinds. We had several sides too. Portions were good so we took bags home. If we're up that way, I'd go back. "

The service was very good and the
food well prepared and enjoyable. The value was average because the price was quite high (over $400 for seven of us, including the tip, and not everyone had an alcoholic beverage)."

Select Cut Steakhouse has been in
the neighborhood for many years and is still one of the best buys one can find for fine dining. The steaks are always tender and perfectly seasoned; the meals are complete with 2 sides; there is an ample wine list and one never leaves hungry. One needs to be very strong to avoid the scrumptious desserts. Service is attentive without being intrusive. Given the size of the meals and the service provided, neither the meal nor the cost can be beat. This is a definite "do-not-miss.""

From the giant jumbo shrimp
cocktail to steaks so tender that you can cut with a fork. Fantastic service. Great alcohol selection. Street parking can be a problem, but I wouldn't let that be a discouragement from giving it a try. Sign up for email updates and receive promotional discounts for special occasions and holidays."

If you want a great cut of beef
worthy of the steak houses downtown, but at a reasonable price and with an understated atmosphere, this place delivers. I've been here several times -- always for a steak with a bottle of red -- and have never been disappointed. It's definitely not a frou-frou steak house, but the service is good, the wine selection is good, the food is great, the prices are great, and it's not hard to get a table. Husband & I come here when we're in the mood for a nice, juicy steak minus the "experience" of a Mastro's or Morton's."

Such wonderful food! The steaks
were fantastic and cooked to perfection. Wine pairing were nice and the service was really great. The only thing I didn't love was that our table was crowded in between two other tables and it felt pretty cramped. But asfter the first few minutes I pretty much forgot about it."

We were greatly disappointed at
this restaurant. We went here before we saw Blue Man Group while celebrating Valentines Day. The best part of the meal was the bread and butter. We should have had a hint that the restaurant wasn't very good considering they were slow and it was Valentines Day at 6:30pm. Or maybe the hint should have been when they put A1 Sauce and Ketchup on the table before they brought out the steaks... No good steak needs any sauce... Both my husband and my steaks were burnt on the outside, chewy, ABSOLUTELY NO seasoning, and it was really bad. We actually thought of just paying our bill and going across the street to eat at a fast food restaurant. I wouldn't be surprised if they close soon."

We went there on New Years Eve. I
originally made the reservation for 2 and had to change it last minute to 4. They were very accommodating and the food was great."

Select cut is good food good price
not a dive but not so fancy you can't be comfortable."
Dined on 12/25/2013
Perfectly cooked filet mignon &
rib eye, (which is not the norm for "steak places" lately). Nice choice of wine and service was excellent. This was our second visit and both were great. We will be back."
Dined on 12/20/2013
The food was mediocre at best. My
boyfriend and I each ordered the ribeye with a garlic "crust." What we received was a flavorless piece of meat with a thick layer of minced, semi-cooked garlic. This is not a crust. Our server should have let us know. It was a disappointing experience overall. We won't be going back again."

Recently moved into the
neighborhood and we are delighted to find this solid local gem. Nothing fancy but great food and big-time value for money."
Dined on 11/15/2013
The menu reminds me of the steak
houses from years ago. With veggies and a starch served with every steak, there is no comparison to what other steak places offer. The prices are very reasonable! The atmosphere only needs a uniform dress code by all of the servers. That alone would kick it up a notch. We were constantly asked about our satisfaction and needs. The water remained full. This is the kind of service that makes them stand out. I look forward to returning for that famous steak burger. While I remain a fan of the pricey steak houses, this spot is a hidden Gem!"

Wonderful neighborhood spot with
good food, nine service and reasonable prices."

If you live in the area, nice

A Lakeview gem. No need to go
downtown! Good for special occasions or guests to Chicago."

Great service without being pushy.
I was in Chicago for work and staying at the company condo in Lakeland. I am so glad I picked this restaurant from open Table. Great steaks for a very reasonable price. Very nice wine list. Defiantly going into favorite restaurants for the Condo. "

We chose to try Select Cut based
on good reviews, and am still wondering what I missed. Service and food was rushed, we had a later, 8:30 reservation, the restaurant was not full, the staff seemed to be in a big hurry to get us done and out the door. We were attempting to have a nice relaxed, comfortable experience and it was anything but that. My steak was ok, my guests' steak was overdone. Crab cakes were marginal. Guests' baked potato and broccoli was ok, my potato was overdone, been in the steamer too long. We really didn't even have enough time to complain about things, the meal was out and done in like 25 minutes. The best thing was we had a great table, in the window, and would have spent more time there had we not felt so pushed."
Dined on 10/19/2013
we always enjoy our meal at Select
Cut- we get a nice steak dinner with a neighborhood atmosphere."
Dined on 10/18/2013
Did not expect to be rushed
throughout our dinner and out the door in an hour. We went to a steak house because we wanted a relaxed lea surly dinner. Same treatment extended to all the diners. They also seated everyone on top of each other even though the restaurant had a number of open tables."
Dined on 9/20/2013
The steak was outstanding!! My
friend and I love the place!"
Dined on 8/24/2013
We were hoping to get a great
steak on our trip to Chicago. Select Cut was just OK, steak did not have much flavor, my wifes chicken dish was cold, presentation was a bit lacking, restaurant was kind of dark, but the service was very good. Overall fair, probably would not go back again."

What a wonderful gem around the
corner! we went for our anniversary, and the food and service were excellent!!"
Dined on 8/13/2013
It would take me too long to give
these guys a proper review. Suffice to say the steak was TOP NOTCH that even my 79 year old Mother who has complained at all of the last 6 "top notch" restaurants we have taken her to has had only good things to say and asked for more than one bite of our meats ;-) Our Waiter turned out to be the owner but we did not know it (unassuming and all service was the perfect touch as it turned out) but we are sure from seeing the other servers that the level we got was the same as others with a display of the meats and fish before hand and an attention to nuanced requests. We all had different cuts (Filet M, Rib Eye, etc.) and all of them melt in your mouth tasty ... RECOMMENDED!"
Dined on 6/16/2013
We could not have been treated
better and their wine list was very reasonably priced for the quality of wine we enjoyed."
Dined on 4/13/2013
I was actually a little
underwhelmed from this experience. I have eaten here many times over the years and this time I found the NY strip to be a very low quality cut of meat. It was much fattier than I've had in the past. Also, my portion of broccoli was like half the size of my partner's. We had the same vegetable medley. Drinks were good, service itself was great and we made it to our venue on time and we weren't hungry. My partner had the Prime Rib and it was very tasty."
Dined on 3/9/2013
Fantastic time! Great food, great
prices in a neighborhood joint!"

My boyfriend and I went for
Valentine's Day. Food was good but took 40 minutes to get. Long wait, was very late and ended up taking most of it home."
Dined on 2/14/2013
Was rushed at dinner. We were
rushed to get our order and the salads and appetizers were very prompt. Our entree's arrived within 5 minutes later. We were there for New year's Eve early and there were plenty of tables. Wanted to have a leisurely dinner and was puched out in 45 minutes. Waitress was new and needs to learn to pace the meal/"

Neeed to thank Open table for
getting me back to an old favorite place. Good steaks, great hamburgers. It was great to get back there."

Select Cut is a neighborhood gem
and has been for decades. They have some of the best ribs in the city, no matter where you go.. Keep up the good job."
Dined on 11/17/2012
Food was ok. For what you get it's
a little pricey. Steaks at Tango Sur are much better, always cooked to perfection and less expensive. This place put A1 on our table which we all thought was bizarre."
Dined on 10/7/2012
Great spot cheep parking and good
food and service."
