I love Their crab legs. They are huge and melt in your mouth. We have also gotten steak every time but I think we will pass next time cause every time we get steak they never cook it enough. Not sure if cooks need more training but every time steak is not done enough for medium. Other then that Mai Tais are awesome and if you google bob chinn Mai tai recipe there is an awesome lady that posted a recipe that tastes better than original.

My wife and I had dinner at Bob Chinn's this weekend. We've been searching for a source for decent grouper in the midwest. Most we've found taste rancid or freezer-burned. Chinn's is absolutely the freshest, best tasting around. We've had grouper in restaurants along the gulf and atlantic seaboard that "claim" right from the boats - Chinn beats them hands down. Garlic bread was excellent, service was great, atmosphere quaint. If there is a downside at all, it is that prices are a bit high, but I guess you get what you pay for.

I have been going to Chins for years. The food quality has gone down and the prices are rapidly increasing.

Not cheap but very worth it! Must try the garlic bread! Great for families, couples, although a louder atmosphere... Great Mai Thai

Friends took us here to celebrate my wife's birthday. They rave about this place. In my humble opinion it is just a wanna be seafood restaurant. Overpriced fish, and run down to say the least. The service was average. I guess that I have been spoiled eating at some great seafood restaurants along the southern coast. If your living in Chicago and have a desire for seafood, this place will fill the bill. But if you want to partake of some truly great seafood, head south to the coast.
