Diner Reviews
  • "Tried many Steak places in Chicago. Shula's ranks as very good for the money. The appetizers were especially good and so were the sides. Needless to say the steaks had better been good ......... and they were. I'll be going back, and you should too."

  • "Everything was perfect! Yes, it is expensive. But everyone should have a meal like that, with service like that, at least one time."

  • "This restaurant is one of the best. Prices aren't over the top, considering the quality of food and service. The steaks are the best! This is a great place to bring guests from out of town. It's close enough to the Mag Mile, but also right in the hotel for those who want to "chill" after dinner."

  • "This restaurant is one of the highest priced restaurants I have been to, but you get what you pay for. The food was great. I had a steak that was prepared exactly the way I like it. The lobster bisque was excellent. The asparagus could have been a little fresher. It was kind of dried out. We ordered the chocolate soufflé in advance and were not disappointed. Usually when there is one dessert ordered for the table people are polite and only take small tastes. However, our group devoured the soufflé and were not even shy about taking the last bite. The noise level was just right - we could easily hear without having to raise our voices. The service was excellent. The waitress made sure she did not interrupt our conversations."

  • "We've been to Shula's in other states, it's a great place. This one doesn't have beer on rap however, which was disappointing. Meat cuts were amazing, and the service was terrific."

  • "Four of us dined at 7 on a Saturday. We were seated promptly, but back in a corner against the window and next to the server station. We did not make a fuss about it but later on I wish we had requested to be seated elsewhere - the location detracted from the experience. Our server was cheerful but did get a drink order incorrect. She promptly made it right. Everyone enjoyed their entrees - the ala carte menu makes for an expensive meal that is above average but not terrific. In retrospect I have a tough time justifying $43 for an eight ounce filet. This Shula's location is on the 'B' team. Might give it a second chance but there is a lot of competition in Chicago for a good steak, which is likely their perceived strength."

  • "Shula's Steak House offers good food at an extravagent price. The steak was good but the vegetable side dish was forgettable. There are better choices for a fine dining experience at a steak house."

  • "We had a great dinner this past Sunday. The food was great, steak cooked perfectly and delicious gratin potatoes. Our server Mesias made the night with great service, he never rushed us and was very attentive."

  • "Had a wonderful meal for my Birthday. My husband and I both had filets. They were prepared perfectly. We shared au gratin potatoes that were heavenly. The desserts looked amazing but were just too full to have one."

  • "We had the Shula cut, the steak was the best I've ever had. They also had a large drink selection for all occasions. Would highly recommend."

  • "We were in Chicago for the evening celebrating valentine's day. Upon arrival, we noticed that the restaurant was about half full. The service was mediocre as we waited for quite some time to order drinks even though there wasnt that many people dining there. The food was very good but the ambiance left much to be desired. We would probably not be go back to this restaurant."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I have to say I am a steak lover, therefor I order steak almost everywhere I go. This was undoubtedly one of the best steaks I have ever had. And my husband agrees. It was cooked to perfection, tender and the taste was yummy. The service was excellent, but it was a very slow night for the restaurant so not sure it is always like that good."

  • "Shulas was a relaxed atmosphere with a competent staff. A bit pricey for meals I found elsewhere of comparable quality."
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "For the price, I'm not really sure it's worth it, but they still offer good cuts of steak that are well-prepared, a robust wine list and excellent service. I ate a nice casual dinner alone and paid $85 after tip, and that was with my SPG discount."

  • "This was the best filet mignon I've ever had! I would definitely return next time I'm in town!"

  • "Great steak. Server very attentive but respectful. Baked potato was served cool, but the cost was removed from the bill. Nice view of the River. All the staff seemed friendly and happy. Very attractive female server"

  • "I went to Shula's to celebrate my birthday and because I received and free entree for my birthday. My friend had also told me before that the food was fantastic. The portions for the sides were huge. It would have been very helpful had our waitress explained this to us before we ordered and then we wouldn't have wasted money and food ordering what we did. I felt she did this to increase her tip. I did mention this to the hostess and the manager, and the hostess explained that when they do their spiel, they should always mention the portion sizes. This was my first dining experience at Shula's and it could have been my last based on her lack of integrity."

  • "I would defiantly put Shula's on the top tier of Chicago's great steak houses. Next time I get a hankering to have an excellent cut of steak, perfectly prepared with traditional, delicious side dishes, polite, prompt service and an inviting selection of wines by the glass, I will go back to Shula's. Friendly bar staff too, always a plus."

  • "The experience was great, we ate here and got a suite downtown foe New Years. Food was great, the server was not very responsive. The Mac n cheese is wonderful with the filet."

  • "I cannot stop bragging about our dining experience to everyone! The food was delicious. I had the filet minion and it's the best I've ever had It was pure perfection. Cooked perfect just how I love it. The sides were a bit large.. That's a good thing! Usually the sides are small. I give our experience 10's all across! We will definitely come back soon!"
    Dined on 12/18/2013
  • "The steaks were all superbly medium rare and especially delicious with the béarnaise. The creamed spinach, mushroom and mashed potatoe sides were great! The scallop and BBQ shrimp were fantastic!"
    Dined on 12/16/2013
  • "The ambiance is nothing special, and our service was decent but slow at times. The real attraction is the meat, which was excellent and well-prepared. Everything is very high priced and a la carte, so be prepared to drop $100 per person if you want anything with your steak."
    Dined on 12/13/2013
  • "We visited Shula's on 12/7/13 for dinner. The location is only 1 mile from the Chicago Theatre so for a pre-dinner show it's a great location. The server was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu, however, when he told us the specials one of which was Maui Maui. We selected it he came back a few minutes later to say that they were sold out. We had a 5:30 reservation (it opens at 5:30) only a few tables had been seated and we wondered how they could already run out of something. We ordered the calamari as an appetizer and it tasted like they used frozen calamrai -- I would definitely not order this again. The Lobster bisque was great and the scallops & roasted corn was wonderful. We will revisit the restaurant but not focus on seafood."

  • "We were staying at the Sheraton and arrived around dinner time. Since we love steak, we decided to just dine at Shula's in the hotel. Our server was great and the food was very good. It was a little too loud for us, even though there were not may people eating. For its convenience alone, we will eat there again the next time we are in Chicago and staying at the Sheraton."

  • "Steaks are perfectly done, melt in your mouth. Very reliably good food and service. Not loud so one can speak to each other without shouting."

  • "I've always loved Shula's Chicago mainly because of it's accessibility, the quality of the food, and the atmospshere. Chicago is the best steak lovers town in America...by far...and I've sampled them all; believe me. But I am always miffed trying to navigate through the Loop congestion and the maze of off-and-on construction obstructions just to get to some of our city's finest. Shula's, however, is conveniently located several blocks east away from all that mess. This traveler/commuter friendly location adds to the allure of the entire experience. Accessibility, combined with a less-than-schmaltzy bar area, great wait staff, easiness to make the reservation, and of course the great steaks make it number one in my mind. A good time."

  • "I've eaten at the Shula's in Miami Beach, Indianapolis and Chicago, and each experience was a great one. The steak has always been cooked to perfection."

  • "Great steakhouse and service. Menu for lunch is very limited."

  • "Comparable to the many other pricey steakhouses downtown."
    Dined on 9/3/2013
  • "The prime rib at Shulas was out of this world delicious and the service was excellent. The ambience feels like an elegant Chicago steakhouse and a place to enjoy a special occasion. The one issue I had was the incredible amount of noise within the seating area. I literally could not hear my wait person rattle off the specials and my dinner guest had to repeat everything she said to me. My ears were ringing after we left!"
    Dined on 9/10/2013
  • "We went there for the steaks and that's what we got, great meat. As all steakhouses you have to pay 50 bucks per steak on average but this was totally worth it. Loved the Crab mac n cheese, totally delicious. Their Shula's coctail was pretty amazing too."
