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.

All I can say is that had the best steak ever. The bartender made a suggestion to have my tomahawk ribeye prepared Pittsburgh style and it was an excellent suggestion. Everything else was great as well but after eating that steak anyother will be just hamburger to me 😉

This was my favorite steakhouse in Chicago, I go for the chargrilled prime rib every Time I am in the city. Came in for our reservation and opted for the bar....

From the moment we walked in we noticed a horrible smell. We promptly left, as the entire first floor smells like sewage.

Nobody seemed to care we came and left after a rushed drink. They must be nose blind!!!

Disgusted!!!

What a nice restaurant. Great selection and value. We sat on the first floor and it was perfect for a relaxed, and totally enjoyable meal. Our waitress was Effie and she was attentive, professional, and very helpful in both menu selection as well as places to go in the area. We will certainly return to try floors two and three.

My husband and I went to chop house for the first time on New Year’s Day and we loved every second we were there. The ambiance was amazing, our waiter George was so thorough on explaining the menu and overall and awesome guy. His recommendations were perfect. Baked oyster appetizer was phenomenal and our steaks were unreal. We had no room for dessert but next time we come back to Chicago- chop house is where we will be!!

For the money spent add a few bucks and splurge at RPM steak, or one of the other high end steak joints. After the excellent oysters rockerfeller the rest went downhill.

Had dinner reservations on Christmas Eve for 3 @7:30pm. Checked in with the front desk. The gentleman said he can take us upstairs right then, but told him that we wanted to set in the bar area. He said it’ll be 20, 25 mins wait. We said okay and went to bar to sit and have cocktails while we waited for our table. We were sitting at bar about 10 mins, the host came by and said he had openings again. We chose not to take it as it was upstairs. Wanted to wait for table by the bar area. He left. After awhile we checked in again, but still no table. At this stage, the gentleman was rude. There was an assistant manager sitting with a customer, maybe a boyfriend. Never once asked if we were okay. Was too busy flirting, I guess. Finally, at 8:30pm I went to check again, as there were now empty tables. The host response was that he came up to us and we told him that we were going to eat at the bar. I’m not sure where he got that from, but we never said we wanted to eat at the actual bar. He was very argumentative at that point. I then went to the assistant manager who was still sitting with the customer and told her my frustration. She immediately sat us and said she’d comp a few appetizers. The server was good, food was okay, but the overall experience put a bad taste in my mouth. I believe employee training is a must if you want to compete with the numerous steak houses in Chicago. May take lessons from Mastro’s... always a good experience there. Thank you...

We were seated 30 miuntes after our reservation for a family of 4 my husband and myself and our 16 and 15 year old. Then we were sat in the bar area and my husband asked for a table upstairs and they said it would be another 20 minutes. At that point we were hungry so we just sat in the bar. Then my husband was bumped at least 15 times and half of the times he was bumped was by our waiter and there was never an apology. Lastly there were some close calls with the big large trays that were brought out they were very very close to banging my spouse in the head. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE

Hac a guest from Kansas City and he just loved the ambiance and mostly the food. He was impressed w/ the great table we had-right next to the front window. Even though the piano was playing we were able to have a conversation w/ everyone at the table. Would definitely return again for a special occasion.

Disappointing compared to their reputation. Food was sub-par for a 5 star restaurant. Ambience was ok, a little noisy. Only one craft IPA and they were out of it for a 6pm Saturday dinner. Appetizers were decent but small quantity and very high priced. Steaks were very high in ground pepper. Capital Grille is a much better option. We will be trying Chicago Cut in a couple weeks....

Table service was terrible. Waiter never checked on us once. Ordered my $80 steak “rare-plus” came to the table medium, way over cooked. Had to flag down a bus boy to return my $80 steak. Walked in at 7:45 for an 8:00 reservation left at 10:45, 3 hours for an $80 steak. Quality and service on par with a “chain steakhouse” not a premium steakhouse they claim to be. Waiter even managed to screw up a gin martini, really a gin martini. I’ll never go back, but with over 2 million people living in Chicago, The Chophouse doesn’t really need my $300 bucks. They’ll just offer the next sucker a terrible meal, service and move on.

The restaurant is really expensive for what you get in return and the atmosphere is rather basic for such a an expensive menu. Our cost was over $300 for the cheapest bottle of wine, 2 steaks and Mac and cheese. We have experienced fine dining in multiple other restaurants and received a lot more value for our money and experienced a more high class setting.

Dined here 2x in the last 2 months …. The service is awful …. They basically ignore you most of the time and if you are lucky to be graced by the servers presence, they act like they are doing you a favor …. Two dines, floors 2 and 3, same result, bad service …. The prime rib is excellent … 2nd time had the filet and it was above average but not WoW …. Sides are small so don't think it is going to feed more the 1.5 people … I have dined here for many years and I think it is time to say goodbye …. Look at all of your options before selecting this place …. To bad, in it's day, this was "The Place" to go for a great 360 experience ….

I was very excited to take my wife there for our anniversary. Both of us are steak lovers. Though we had reservations we were seated by the bar and felt the draft every time the door opened. We order a bottle of wine, oysters, a crab cake, 2 steaks, lobster tail and a piece of carrot cake. All of it except the wine was below average. My steak was so cold in the middle almost frozen. Someone from another table stated the same thing. The waiter was a nice guy but we rarely saw him. They took my steak back and it still was cold. Carrot cake was old and stale. We were extremely disappointed for a $380 dinner.
