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.

From the moment we went through the door we were back in the 1920’s from the door man to the decor. We were greeted very warmly and professional . Our waiter Lorenzo was very attentive and treated us very well. The food was delicious we start with the wedge salad with 50/50 dressing ( half blue cheese half 1000). My husband had the tomahawk steak and I had the petite sirloin both were cooked to perfection . You have to try the potato pancakes very good. All and all we were very happy and enjoyed our evening very much. Thank you Teri Studiale

We made reservations weeks in advance only to arrive and be told “you will have to wait 45 minutes more”
What is the point of a reservation system???

We tried to address with the manager and he dismissed us.

They said they would call or text us to come when our table was open.

We waited almost an hour and left without ever being seated, texted or called.

Best part is 3 hours later Open Table thanks me for the reservation I never experienced.

We gave up reservations at RPM Steak which we have visited several time to “try” Chop House.

1. You missed out on a $1800 bill(our bill that night at a better steakhouse)
2. We will never ever go back and make sure our friends are aware.


If I could give no stars I would!
0 stars for Management to Service to experience.

I ordered the prime rib as medium rare but it was served really rare. The meat was not juicy at all. Also the server was rude. We did not stay long but they tried to clear the table as quick as possible, and they forced us to finish the dessert. They even said that they have reservation after us. I never go back and I of course do not recommend to anyone. Very bad!

An old school chop and steak house that fit the description perfect for what I want in a steak house. Classic ambiance and throwback photos line the garden room and bar area where the piano man plays and the drinks flow. The steak was top notch and I highly recommend ANYTHING with the bacon in it.

We were greeted by name and given a terrific seat. It was obvious that they read my special request.

The warm and friendly reception was a precursor to feeling pampered the entire evening. The food was delicious and as beautifully prepared as the menu suggested.

This is a restaurant that lives up to the reviews we had prior to arrival.

i felt the price was too high for the value. I have had much better stakes and sides at other places. The creamed spinach was creamed with parmesan cheese (pretty weak). The mashed potatoes that were recommended were not as good as something you can make at your own home. The next night I ate a less expensive restaurant and the bread basket they brought to the table was the exact same as the chophouse. I thought they might make or at least bake their own bread; guess not.
All of the seating was high top tables which don't work for everyone.

This Chicago landmark is a wonderful place with outstanding food.
Even the side dishes are remarkable. Even if you are not a steak fanatic, the seafood is absolutely wonderful too.
Don't miss an opportunity to visit this place - and maybe make it a repeatable place for holidays or special occasions!

Food was nothing special considering each steak was atleast $60. Waiter was great but the bartender made my martini about 1 or 2 oz short. The steak was also not cooked to the correct temp as ordered. Spent $200 here and definitely wasn't worth it.

My wife ordered a rib eye that she did not think was very tasty or had any marbling. We mentioned it to the waiter who assured us we got a good cut of meat. I ordered the pork chop which was good but not overly tasty. For the price we were both disappointed with the taste of our food.

I have been here several times and they never disappoint! The food was spectacular, however, the service was less than desirable. Our waiter was eavesdropping on our conversation and we were never offered dessert or coffee, just our check after we finished our meal. I would've expected higher quality of manners and personal characteristics in giving us our privacy and not mentioning what we discussing during our dinner. NO CLASS THERE!
