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 Mishima 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.

The smell of the apparently popular bacon appetizer permeates the restaurant and gave our food a subtle bacon flavor. Not the worst thing for my steak but my date didn't think the background bacon flavor complemented the crab legs very well.

We revisited here after a lengthy time away on a quiet Thursday evening. They were not busy, and we were seated immediately, although at a high table instead of lower one we had requested. Server was outstanding and took care of every need. Drinks were tasty, as was the calamari appetizer. My wife's steak, a bone in filet, was cooked perfectly. Shared salad and au gratin potatoes were both great. I ordered the prime rib charred, hoping to get one of my favorite dinners from the past, a grilled prime rib which was always on the special menu. For some reason that was taken off the menu, the reason for our long absence. It still is, and if mine was charred, it wasn't noticeable. Overall, a nice evening.

Wow, this is my second visit to Chicago when I had the best steak dinner at the Chicago Chop House. My return trip 20 years later was better than the first, but again the best steak in the world. My daughters were with me and we each ordered different cuts, dry aged sirloin medium, dry aged filet rare and dry aged bone in ribeye medium well each with distinctive tastes. Hopefully my next trip will be sooner than 20 years but with certainty I will visit the Chicago Chop House!

The Chop House was perfect from start to finish. We were celebrating our new announcement of a 3rd child. They sat us in a quite window area. Beautiful view. The service was impeccable, Todd our server was attentive, knowledgeable, and not intrusive. The back staff keep our drinks full, table clean and well maintained. My perfect manhattans were just that, perfect. The food was the best part. Dry aged Tomahawk ribeye was beautiful and delicious. My wife enjoyed the petit filet. They brought us a key lime pie as a congratulatory dessert. The night was perfect. Just what we needed. Thank you Monique, Nick, and our course the infamous Phil Martin. You guys ROCK!

Bar tenders were poor, there service was terrible, waiter was outstanding,
food was good, piano was nice touch, but sitting next to the bar and hearing F bombs fly
by customer and staff made me feel like I was at a local bar rather than a fine dining establishment.

Service was great. Fast and easy. As my friend and I were on our way to catch a show, the server was very aware of our time constraints and had everything prepared when we needed it. The food was also delicious. The meat was perfectly cooked but I thought the sides were a bit plain (we ordered the crispy potatoes). I would definitely save room for dessert and dessert drinks. The carrot cake and Nutty Irishman were fantastic. Overall, would highly recommend. Good vibe and ambiance as well, not too loud and not too dark.

Visited Chicago to celebrate our 17th wedding anniversary. A dear friend of ours treated us to this wonderful place. We had one of the most memorable meals ever! The food, especially the bone-in ribeye, was amazing. Our server was attentive but not overbearing, she was great. We had an early dinner, so no crowds and the atmosphere was perfect for conversation. As we left, there was live piano playing which was a nice send off. And to top it all off, as we were leaving to go to the CIBC theater for Hamilton, they offered to take us on the Chop House Chariot, which is a free shuttle service exclusive to the Chop House.

I hadn't been to the chop House in years and was looking for a restaurant to take my hubby for his birthday. He's a serious meat and potatoes guy and we are on a quest to find our favorite steak house. so I thought let's give it a try. We sat upstairs on the second floor, nice atmosphere, music played, but not so loud that you couldn't enjoy your conversation. Our server was a little slow responding to basic requests, but it was busy upstairs so she got a slight pass. We both ordered the wet aged ribeye steaks, the portion size was good. I prefer mine medium well with a touch of pink, it was cooked well it just wasn't seasoned and needed salt and a pat of butter to flavor it. My husband likes his well done and said there were parts that still had some pink, but he's not one to send his food back so he ate it and said it was okay overall. The drinks were decent, the key lime pie was on the tart side and as one of our favorites we thought it was average. We loved the bacon strips for appetizers and would recommend them. Overall, it was a decent meal just not exciting and at just under $300 we could probably find a couple of other steak houses that we liked better. The quest continues...

Service was very slow, getting a food menu took over ten minutes. Steaks were over priced for good but not great quality. Wanted to be on levels 1 or 2 to enjoy live piano music, was placed on three where no one else was sitting. Was also looking forward to seeing all the historical pictures, but the table we say at have several missing from the walls. The missing pictures looked tacky and the walls looked neglected as a result. The restaurant was also quite cold and had to sit with a jacket on.

Only thing good about this place was the pictures on the wall. French onion soup was pure salt. Pork chop n mash potatoes were avg at best. Service acted like he was talking to he homie...not professional at all! Drinks were a very short pour which is never the case at an upscale restaurant. This place obviously just a tourist trap! Tons of better restaurants in Chicago better than this classic dump!!

Made reservations, was told “they were running behind 20 minutes”. Waited 30 minutes, while people were seated after me while I waited.

They ran out of dinner rolls/bread. Food came to my table cold. Food didn’t taste good. They were underprepared for Valentine’s Day.

I will not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Went in for Valentine’s Day. Overall we enjoyed it, but the kitchen got overwhelmed. We started with the lobster escargot which was superb. From there however it took over an hour for our steaks to come out. The staff was very apologetic and the manger came by and let us know they’d be comping our meals.

When the steaks and sides finally arrived, they were good. My wife got the petite strip dry aged, which was still huge and a perfect medium rare and tasted outstanding. I ordered the dry aged bone in ribeye medium rare, which was unfortunately over cooked to medium well. Not wanting to wait another hour for a remake, we just made do.

When the check arrived, they hadn’t comped any part of the meal. I asked the server; he said the manager never told him about the comp. When he returned, we had two drinks and the app taken off. We didn’t want to ruin the night by getting upset and arguing further so we paid the balance and declined the free dessert offer. At this point it was 10pm (reservation was at 7:30) and we just wanted to go home.

Overall, we made the best of the night but I’ll think twice before going back.
