Steakhouse
Historic Chicago dining is more than just a theme at The Chicago Chop House; it’s a way of life. Stepping into the restaurant’s immaculately restored; century-old Victorian brownstone building brings diners into the city’s past, when meat packers, politicians, & gangsters dined on steaks in luxurious rooms. More than 1,400 photos tell the tale of old Chicago throughout three dining rooms surrounded by hunter green walls & lit by glowing sconces.
Our all USDA Prime menu of awe-inspiring 64-ounce porterhouses, 16- and 24-ounce New York strips, and 24-ounce prime ribs bathe the senses in prime-aged flavor. The Chicago Chop House is also one of the only restaurants in Chicagoland to serve Japanese cuts, a unique and succulent beef known for its delicate flavor & tenderness. Guests can pair their meals with a glass or bottle of wine from our international list that includes more than 650 selections.

One of the best meals and experiences we have ever had. The food was amazing and so was the service. Made us feel like we were the only people in the restaurant. I would highly recommend

we came here tonight for our 4 year anniversary. we have meaning to come for awhile since we moved here in April 2019 but thought this would be the perfect time to try; we were wrong - since we've lived here this has been the most dissapointing dining experience.
1. we saw a yelp check in months ago after looking up reviews for a "one cocktail free with checking in." Unfortunately the bartender AND server did not know what this included and if we could use one per table. so they each at separate times had to ask the manager. wouldn't you think if you have offered this offer for the past 8 months that you as a server and bartender should know about this offer and what it entails? this led to over 10 minutes of waiting to order a drink.
2. beet salad was good for sharing and the baked potato (eh not great)
3. server was not the best, he had our table and another 2 top and 8 top.
the restaurant was 25% full and the service wasn't good for being 4-5 stars...

4. we ordered a steak, which for the price wasn't anything special. overpriced..we asked for the rest to go however we never got the leftovers as they forgot to bring them out as the debacle below seems to have tripped them up.
5. we had $100 gift card to use and we had never used as this was our first visit. they said the value said full yet it wasn't going through..and asked if we had used it? are you kidding? they had the nerve to ask do to their computer error..so they had to contact someone else to get approval..this added another 15-20 minutes of waiting to get this done and get out check
needless to say we were ready to leave and won't recommend.
oh and they didn't offer anything not even a free dessert for our anniversary.
service was attentive it just took time to get things done and caused an unpleasant evening.

I love the Chop House and live only a block away...so it's a go-to place for me. The food is always outstanding and usually the service is as well. We decided to eat at the bar instead of a table and it wasn't crowded for a Saturday evening, but the service at the bar was just lacking in so many ways this time. Still will go back, but not very pleased with the service at the bar.

We had a birthday celebration for 8 people and Chicago chop house was the perfect choice! They accommodated all of our requests to specialize the dinner for our party, magician- yes!, singer- yes!, cakes-yes! The staff was kind and helpful and the food was absolutely fantastic! I highly recommend the wagyu beef, so buttery sooo good!
All of the salads were also very tasty along with the lamb lollipops! We initially were going to choose another steak house with a more modern upscale esthetic but are all so glad we came to the Chop house. The place itself was warm and welcoming filled with interesting history and character! You won’t be disappointed . The one small criticism I would have would be they could have been better about clearing the table after each course and prepping for the next course, but all the other good outweighs this slight oversight

Way overpriced for the value and quality of the food
Place was empty but yet that sat us a foot from another table. Could completely hear their conversation

Recently dined here for New Years Day, our annual tradition as a family. We decided to try something different and did not disappoint at all! The food, ambiance but especially service was impeccable. Our waitress, Noza, was outstanding! She was very educated about everything on the menu. Most importantly she was very patient with all 10 of us. We will definitely be dining here for all of our future occasions.

Arrive for an early dinner on NYE and everything was great! Steaks aren't cheap but it's one of the best I've had in Chicago!! 3 sides all great. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu here.

My fiancé and I had dinner here for NYE. This was our second visit and it was just as memorable for all the right reasons the second time around. We had the lobster bisque soup, Cesar salad and steak - all of which was good.

One of the best things about this place (besides the food) is that they don’t cram as many people in as they can. We had a nice table by the window with plenty of elbow room so we didn’t feel like we were on top of the people next to us.

My only “complaint” is that my Manhattan was not in a proper glass and had ice. I don’t think I’ve ever had a Manhattan that contained ice. If you are a bourbon drinker and prefer your drink to be “neat” this is not the place to assume it comes that way....even if the menu says “perfect” in the description.

Tony was our waiter and he was very attentive. The supporting staff were very good as well. The sides were delicious, my porterhouse was very good, my family loved their meals. What won it for me was as we were leaving, we noticed it began to rain hard...Ernest introduced himself and offered to give us a ride back to our hotel in the Chophouse chariot! The hotel has a car service to help in a pinch...Complimentary! Huge bonus.

We arrived for our 8pm reservation. We were greeted at 8:20
We ordered a med steak which came out well done at 9:30. They sent it back as we said we wanted to split it. It was overcooked and tough. At this point, we waved the flag as we wanted to get out of there. As we were there 3 other tables had issues, and the manager had to apologize for the kitchen.

Our bill was $200 with tip, and could have gotten a better steak and service at Outback. Disappointing as we chose this over others we knew were solid!

Not sure, I think I had a new/young waiter and felt we were left alone too long, even if on Xmas Day. After 30 minutes waiting for entrees, I asked waiter where were our entrees. He said the kitchen was backed up, but no one updated us, and there were empty tables around us, plus it was early in the evening. Too many places out there with better service. Service can almost beat anything else. I had not been here in many years and was disappointed. No apologies for the delays, nothing.
Food was very good though.

While the starters were very good the steaks were only OK considering how much they cost. I was very disappointed with the beer list and I do not drink wine. My wife thought that the cocktail list was lacking also. The au gratin potatoes were average, at best. Although the experience was not bad, it was not great either, so I will not be going back

The Chicago Chop House is simply excellent at what they do. The porterhouse I had was superb. The truffle mac & cheese was delectable and the in house made cherry pie was incredible, as was the homemade ice cream that came with it! Adrian, our server, was attentive and recommended a great wine. We had a few pre-dinner cocktails and the drinks were delicious. It was an overall excellent experience.

My girlfriend and I were in Chicago for our anniversary and came across this restaurant on w. The appetizers, steaks and desserts were delicious. The a la carte sides were ok at best. Truffle mach and cheese with bacon was very bland and had hardly no truffle in it. The cauliflower side was decent. The wine was delicious. The real issue I had was the prices. Each glass of wine from a 75$ bottle of Duckhorn ran me 24$ a glass. Other than that my experience was good and I’d recommend this place if you have money to spend.

The piano AND the historical photos add to the ambiance. Service and manager Jimmy L ensured that we made it to our theatre performance on time. Outstanding experience.
