Bob Chinn's has been an institution since 1982 in Wheeling, IL.  For over 30 years we have served some of the Freshest Seafood from around the globe- Alaska, Hawaii, New Zealand- just to name a few.  Specializing in seafood, we're also known for our wet-aged prime steaks that are comparable to some of the best steakhouses.  Starting off as a restaurant that only seated 200, expanded to over 700 seats in just 5 years.  Come inside and judge for yourself on the quality and freshness of the finest food you will ever taste, served by our friendly & enthusiastic staff.

Longtime institution with a huge selection of seafood & a warehouse-like space with 700 seats.- Google
"King Crab legs soooo good the large meat portions slide right out of the shell."
"Make sure to get a Mai Tai and a slice of paradise pie."

1st time visiting for Mother's Day with wife n fam. Seating is an adventure for a party of 4 or more! Stood in a waiting area for 10min. Then, called for seating. Then, stood in a line to go in the dining room. Herded into the dining room. Then stood in another line until table/waiter was available! Garlic bread was crusty outside, soft inside, and layered with garlic and butter. Delicious! (unfortunately the best part of my meal). Waiter was very pleasant and attentive. However, my entree had 'issues'.... my MEDIUM temp sirloin came out mooing, was sent back, and returned well done (-2pts) Lobster tail was cold and returned for a lukewarm one (-2pts). Also, everything breaded and fried was greasy. Overall, place was crowded, confusing, and subpar with food. I'm not a seafood fan. But for those who are, this place may appeal to you.

I believe this restaurant has a high review because people never go to the coast. All the sea food are low grade frozen materials which taste as dry as jerkies but priced at live fresh grade. For example cooked frozen 4-pound king crab is priced at $37/pound and it taste awful. I don't blame it as this is in the Midwest, people don't know how fresh sea food should taste like.

A party of 6 for the Mother's Day Special! The food was delicious, hot, and everything was well worth the money. Prime rib, that melts in your mouth, lobster and crab legs, dessert, and drinks,,,,omg, I had a wonderful Mother's Day!

Great fresh Sea food and steaks and sushi in a Giant Place. Always good food but you eat on plastic plates and I always feel herded in and rushed out. Good food and good enough drinks but needs to be updated kinda feel like I am eating in a weird 80's time warp. It is cool that the building used to be a brothel and frequented by Al Capone too.

We hadn't been there for a while but was just as we'd remembered. We had a good amount of us in our party but the food was brought out so quickly for all of us at the same time. Terrific, fresh food and the server Meagan was so accommodating, fun and knowledgeable. She hustled and never missed a beat. Always must when visiting in the northern suburbs!

I've been going to Chinn's since I was born and it's always been one of my favorites. I'll keep this short and sweet. Bob Chinn's 14oz filet is among the best steak I've ever had, and I've had steak all over the world. If that's not amongst the finest cuts of meat you've ever had, I'd be shocked. Don't be fooled, Bob Chinns is more than just a crab house, they're a world class steakhouse as well. Don't forget to save room for paradise pie! 😀
