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
"The crab vermicelli, garlic rolls, and steamed fish are delicious."
"Love the king crab legs but service can be inconsistent."

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! 😀

This place has below average food and even worse service. This restaurant doesn't care about the quality of their food, only how much money they can squeeze out of customers. Never coming back again. Just a warning, a lot of the positive reviews you see about them are fake.

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.

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.

My favorite place for decades! Crab is awesome. Steak is just as amazing. Try the scallops for an appetizer.

Hands down - best seafood in the Midwest! King Crab legs soooo good the large meat portions slide right out of the shell. Blackened grouper and jumbo shrimp to die for!
