About Chicago Chop House

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.

Great steaks...Great service. Of course what to be expected if you are going to drop $100+ for a meal. Typical steakhouse environment....tables close together....and some noise. But the great steak makes one not notice this. The Wagyu beef is awesome. Even though more expensive, it is worth every cent and good value if you want the best.

We try to eat here every time we’re in Chicago. Food and service are both top notch! We’ve learned to split a salad or appetizer, limit our bread intake, and share a side (the portions are very large and our server suggested we try this method) and that allows to to fully enjoy what we go there for - the unbelievably delicious filet mignon! The wine list is extensive, there’s definitely something for everyone. We tried the crème brûlée cheesecake for dessert - unbelievably delicious! Be prepared to pay a bit more than your average dinner, but it’s so worth the splurge!! Can’t wait to go back!!

Saw an add for this place in the Southwest Airlines magazine. The restaurant was outstanding. Food was great. Our waitress was Kat, she made the night fun with her wit and humor, like she was an old friend. Our steaks where cooked to perfection. I highly recommend dinner here. Very fun place, and great steaks.

Andrea was awesome! Very friendly and helpful. We had a great time and felt very well taken care of. The only problem that I had was the seating. They seated us (in a fairly empty restaurant), right next to a table of six. The waitress, bus staff, and everyone who seemed to know them stood right next to me the whole night talking in my ear to be attentive to them as well. That was slightly annoying. However, overall it was a very nice dinner. The food was great. My fiancée and I had a wonderful time.

Excellent experience but for the experience with the wine we ordered. It was 15-20 minutes. Oils not locate our first two choices of wine. Apparently the wines are being moved in a renovation. We have finished our bread and our shrimp cocktail before we even received the third requested bottle of wine.

My friends and I flew into Chicago to see Hamilton and decided to have dinner at the Chop House. I LOVED LOVED LOVED the experience from the piano bar taking our request to Kat our waitress the entire experience was truly memorable. The Chef came to the table and signed a menu. If you're ever in the Chicago dine at Chop House.

Pricey, old time steakhouse with old-time ambience. Enjoyed a low key, 2 plus hour dinner in the lower level with live piano player (not playing the whole two hours). Excellent service from George. As locals-we have many other choices; but would recommend to an out of town traveler saying near by.

Celebrated my daughters 18th Birthday and pre-graduation with my wife, son and six of my daughters best friends with a visit to Chicago for lunch, theater show, dinner and overnight stay. We have been to many steakhouses in the City, both new and trendy as well as quiet and traditional, and we have loved them all. But on this occasion, Chicago Chop House was perfect for us. It was busy, yet moderately quiet. Staff was great and energetic. We had two seperate tables on different floors. One for my daughter and her friends, and the other for my wife and son. Food was great, my daughter and her friends had a blast and were very appreciative of the opportunity to go out for a great weekend.

This is an unfortunate review to write but one that I think should be shared given our experience. Several months ago, we booked our table for 6:45 p.m. on New Year's Eve. We know NYE can be challenging for restaurants but were confident Chicago Chop House would be a fun, delicious and festive experience. Unfortunately, our experience was not fun nor delicious. We were seated in the back and it was relatively quiet as two large tables on either side of us were empty. The Chop House always attempts to upsell water at the outset of your visit. Fine, and we ordered sparking water. Our meal order was simple. Split a salad, rib-eye along with some sides. We ordered a cocktail in order to enjoy the live piano music and some wine for dinner. Not 10 minutes later, out comes our entire dinner order. No salad course. Faced with a platter full of hot food, and not wanting to seem unreasonable, we grudgingly said we would pass on the salad we ordered. Brian did apologize. We eat and then, immediately after the plates are removed were given a piece of chocolate cake as an apology for a missed salad course. We were never asked if we wanted chocolate cake and would have like the opportunity to have a piece of key lime pie or carrot cake. The choice was made for us and unceremoniously plopped on our table as Brian moved on to try and upsell more sparkling water. I think we were at the table for a total of 45 minutes. We got the message and left. What a tremendous disappointment. We think the evening boiled down to a waiter who was pre-occupied with other matters and did not have the time nor inclination to provide us with basic service and/or couldn't wait to turn that table over as many times as possible. We were huge fans of the Chicago Chop House until now. There are so many terrific restaurants in Chicago, with terrific service, that we will think twice about returning to the Chicago Chop House.

The food was absolutely amazing. Never have I had a steak that flavorful and juicy. The salad and sides were on point as well. But I can't stop thinking about that steak. Not one upscale steakhouse I've been too has come even close to rivaling the Dry Aged Tomahawk at the Chicago Chop House. The service was phenomenal. Overall absolutely would go again and again and again.

The steaks were amazing, just like I remembered 15 years ago which originally made it my favorite Chicago steakhouse. Atmosphere was great, such a classical, iconic space (so much better than the new hip steakhouses. Hoping the new ownership will reestablish the crowds and vibe. Megan our server was absolutely terrific explaining the different steaks and making suggestions including our amazing bottle of Chilean Cab! Only down side was the blue cheese olives for our martinis - so small and unimpressive. Why skimp on those? Consider the Spanish, queen, colossal olives and hand over stuff them with fresh blue cheese?! All in all a great meal and experience.

Food and drink was great. Bartenders were great. Our lead waitress, not so great.

Unwitty sarcasm went to the point of annoyance. While she was giving her summary of specials/apps/etc., she described a seafood platter. I casually asked how much that cost. I was met a very annoyed face and she would not continue highlighting the menu. I was met with a "oh, ok, I get it" when I asked this question (I still don't understand what that means).

When handing over the bill (which was over $2k), she commented more than once about how the 18% gratuity is just the built in minimum. Obviously, pushing us to give a separate tip.

Hopefully, this was an anomaly, but this definitely decreased our group's enjoyment.

As a Christmas gift to myself, I chose to have two of our children and their families (from Cleveland & St Clair Shores MI) meet in Chicago for the weekend. We had a special dinner at the Chicago Chop House on Saturday. We ordered the seafood platter appetizer for six which was wonderfully delicious and there was plenty of food for six adults and one child. The wine was great; the dinner was outstanding and it would be difficult to pick a favorite (filet was perfect; prime rib cooked to order; tommy hawk steak was outstanding). We had a couple of sides including the truffle mac & cheese. Fortunately, we were in a corner so we were not bothered by the busy room. I wish they had an elevator as I had just suffered a knee injury. We had a great server. A fabulous place for a special dinner.

This restaurant was the perfect spot to celebrate my birthday. The service was outstanding- Meghan out waitress was attentive without being intrusive. Made a few recommendations which proved to be winners . The support staff was also very attentive and cordial. The piano music added a touch of elegance to the experience. Will definitely return when visiting Chicago.

Despite the restaurant being busy the noise level was quiet and conducive to conversation.

It's an old school steakhouse, in need of some updates. We got a steak, crab legs, mashed potatoes and lobster bisque and it was over $200. Its not that the food was bad, but it wasn't amazing and certainly not worth $200. For that kind of money I would go to a nicer place.
