My wife and I always come to Benny's Chop House when we get to Chicago, you can depend on the service, food and drink. The pork chop was outstanding and my wife enjoyed her favorite scallops.

Consistently great. I've been 2x: 8oz Filet was perfect, and Mac and cheese with bacon is best I've ever had. I go to many steakhouses, and this is my new favorite.

Appetizers were good. Entres were fair at best. Dover sole overcooked, lobster risotto good, farfalle poor, no flavor. Veal special sounded good but wine was not reduced undercooked. Very disappointed. Would not return. The service and the waiter was superb.

We split steaks because they were so large. In stead of bringing up the steak as one piece they split them , so by the time we got them they were luke warm. Very disappointed!

We've walked by this place a million times and finally went in - what a pleasant surprise! Beautiful bar area with wonderful, live music, big windows, great views & loads of light too. For some reason this place doesn't get the press of other steakhouses in Chicago but I had the best steak here that I've had in a long time. And my sweetie's whitefish entree was excellent as well. The bar service was a touch slow possibly due to it being a Saturday night. We prefer bar seating but a peek in the dining showed considerable elegance and it wasn't noisy like so many of the other steakhouses in town where you can't hear each other. We go to Rosebud Steakhouse on Walton often for sports viewing & great food but this place is better!

Our lead waiter was not impressive!
He never once asked how our meal tasted or cooked per our requested. all he said was "do you have everything you need"
I'm in the hospitality business and that one action left me unimpressed with Benny's and I made the reservation based on recommendations from several people!

One of the staff members yelled and pulled a customer out of his bar chair and caused a scene. Because of this I will not return.

The steaks here are great but unfortunately the king crab was definitely not. It was super dry and had no taste...like it had been cracked and microwaved. The server was okay but did forget to put in one of our appetizers. We were there for two birthdays and got seated in the bar it was 8pm and the restaurant was super slow. Not sure why they wouldn't put us in the actual dining room. We wouldn't return to Benny's...

This was a great choice! We made a reservation but when we arrived we noticed that we could sit in the bar at a high top, which we preferred. We got the corner table by the window, had excellent service from Caesar, and fantastic food...not to mention the piano player was great as well. Would definitely recommend.

Great dry-aged steak. Would love it if there were 60-day options for the dry age, but otherwise the 30-day was cooked and seasoned very well!

Service was excellent, prices for drinks and sides were very high. Table of 6 with 1 bottle of wine ($135) and some bourbons was over $900.00. Although the food was very good, I do not think it supports the price of the experience.

My partner and I haven eaten nothing that went here for lunch. Immediately following our meal—and we shared our lunches—we both proceeded to feel ill. There must have been something in the food that day. The taste of the food was average.

I have had wonderful dinners here, service and food is always outstanding. This time I came for a business lunch, quiet atmosphere, very accommodating staff.

I ordered the wedge salad for around $10.50, it was TINY, no bread or crackers. My colleague ordered the fish tacos which were of value. Had I not been with a customer I would have complained, Way over priced and I was hungry the rest of the day.
