Improved menu of delicious salads and appetizers, that are "light fare" choices, such as Red Quinoa Salad you can add cajun shrimp or salmon for those seafood lovers, and my favorite appetizer, the Ahi Tuna Poke with avocado and mango.

My husband and I live in Riverside and never tried Chew Chew until a few months ago. The food was great and we eat there frequently now. They cook the steak the way you ask. The duck is wonderful. Love the Oysters! Wine list needs some work but it is getting better. Restaurant owners need to learn that there are tons of fabulous wines available from their distributors that are not expensive and not found in most grocery stores. Can't beat Chew Chew's 2 for 1 or 1/2 (can't remember which) bottle of wine night on Tuesdays!

One of my favorite restaurants. I have never a bad experience there. Everything is great. Plan on spending around $100 for two.

A hidden gem in Riverside IL. Owner-chef Scott consistently prepares a menu of inspired dishes that include full entrees to burgers, pastas, flatbreads and tacos. Always iced fresh oysters among the appetizers. Try the lamb burger, or the wild board and short rib pasta bolognese. Vegetarians will appreciate the spaghetti squash "pasta" dish. A nice selection of wines and a full cocktail bar complete your meal. The ambience is friendly with a whimsical railroad theme in the background. I like taking my meals in one of the booths made up to look like a dining car with painted scenery outside the "train window" and the kitchen opposite, with the staff visible preparing your next course. Friendly and attentive wait staff are always eager to please.

We've always had great food at chew chew. Not this visit. Fish Tacos were not fresh and the reuben sandwiches our table had were stringy. None of us thought the service our waiter gave was good.
