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.

Was taking my gf out for her birthday dinner. Made a reservation for 9pm, had to wait 30 mins to get seated (on the third floor) people around us were sending their plates back because their steaks weren’t cooked properly which was bizarre. We ordered our appetizer which was delivered with our entree, but they forgot about our drinks that we ordered first. I would’ve liked to receive better service for the price that I paid for our meal. Overall the food was good but the service and vibe was terrible. Won’t be coming back

The pricing is outrageous for the low level of service and subpar taste of the food. I had to ask multiple times to get my drinks filled, it took 2 hours to get our food, and while the food wasn’t terrible, it definitely doesn’t taste as priced. I have had much better steaks for cheaper. We also forgot a photograph on the table in which they threw away rather than holding on to it....seeing that we called the very next day for it and they did not have it. I’m really confused how the ratings are so high and the fact that I rarely write reviews, good or bad, unless wowed or extremely upset....which again, is rare for either.

With the number of great steakhouses in Chicago, I would not go back to the Chop House. The outdoor patio was very nice, but the food and service were average. Nothing bad, just average.

I hated my experience. I think the best part about my experience was how easy it was to get valet parking . I was walked upstairs to a table that was in the middle of the floor but i asked for a booth which were downstairs . While sitting waiting on my waiter i noticed thus small waiter running with food like literally running . Unfortunately the running never stopped . I asked a manager to help accommodate that the floor was shaking due to the waiters running through the room constantly. The most uncomfortable setting. If i wanted to be around such a atmosphere i would have stayed home with the 6 year old. I ordered lobster macaroni and cheese and of course they brought the entire lobster tail while just sitting on stop. Steaks not seasoned at all. $350 downt the drain. I wish i could call my bank on this one

For my wife’s birthday we decided to check out Chicago Chop House. We haven’t gone out much due to COVID. The food lived up to its reputation. Our only issue was our server was less than safe. She always had her mask pulled down when she came to the table. She talked over our food. My wife and I took a gamble and still ate our food, as we didn’t want to get our server in trouble. Her lack concern for her clients was transparent through her pleasant demeanor. Also, none of the staff corrected her. As much as we wanted to say something, we (the client) shouldn’t be out in that position. If we can’t even go to one of Chicago’s more expensive restaurants and feel safe, what’s the motivation to dine out?

The waiter was very friendly but the delivery was not the best. Our friend waited almost an hour for her drink and then 30 minutes for her second. We ordered a side that never got delivered.

Let's just say if you don't look like you have money your treatment here is just okay. Here's the thing I have been here years ago. And the serves were something to remember in a good way. Let's talk manger she was present but spent most of her time mingling with the staff. Im use to the manger coming over asking how's your visit thanking you dining. None of this happen instead I was met with uneven looks which made me feel a certain way. Let's talk my server when I was first seated it was as if they had to do rock paper scissors to see who'd take me. When she did approach i didn't feel wanted I often times found her standing in the back with the manger and other server talking when she noticed me looking on then she got on her job as to asking how I was mind you the time of my visit was just as they open they were not crowded at all so the lack of service was annoying. Now here's were I notice a difference in treatment two more diners arrived which just do happen to be regulars and let's just say they were giving the beauty and the beast welcome a.k.a be are guest. Im not sure if serve was not on point due to gratuity being included or what. But I know fine dinning and this lack of care from management was reflected in my server the bus men and help were great better then my server the food was great . And if I might add I was dining along so no one can say hey she had other guest so we thought we'd leave her be I was along just so I could take it all in and i was so very disappointed in this age old gem. In a time were covid is deciding rather your business will with stand such a great depressing kindness and attention goses along way and you never know who your serving or what there going through in house dining is so personal compared to carry out and servers and resturants need to keep this in mind I love the Chicago food scene and staples such as this restaurant. But I lefted and did not want to return as a in house diner and the food here is very very good.

The T-bone Ribeye steak wasn’t anything to write home about, it lacked seasoning as well as the lamb chops. The Yukon mashed potatoes almost tasted instant. The lobster bisque was terrible, there was one small piece of lobster in the soup about the size of a quarter, it was so much cream in the soup it was separating. The calamari was almost flavorless as well. My friend enjoyed the crab cake, but since I’m visiting from Maryland I didn’t even try the Chicago crab cake. The best thing was the champagne special they offered.

We came to Chicago just to have dinner at Chicago Chop House for a (belated) Anniversary dinner. We absolutely loved our steak and crab leg dinners! The oysters and dessert was awesome as well. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

I fully enjoyed my experience at Chicago Chop House. The service was impeccable from the time we arrived to the time we left. The hostess was friendly when she greeted us and showed us to our table. All of the waitstaff was friendly and attentive. And the food was absolutely delicious! I had the wagyu burger and I highly recommend it! It was a perfect night and we were able to sit outside and enjoy the weather. I will definitely be back.

Food was great. I liked the patio setup. But service was really slow. Server said she was the only one and there were 4 total tables? Time extended beyond the 90 minute reservation window and we had other plans starting at that time.

Crab legs are great to say the least. Ordered the 1/2 pond for an entree and more than enough with a side. The outdoor seating area is very pretty. Romantic really with lights and music plating. Has heaters too. Service was attentive and helpful in ordering. Only thing that I must say sort of bothered me was the food came while we were still eating out appetizer. that is a pet peeve of mine for sure.
