Steakhouses in Chicago

I heard there are some really great steakhouses in Chicago, so I want to visit one or two while I'm there!  What are the best in town for my friend and I to have one awesome steak dinner?  One more thing -- we don't want a $500 steakhouse experience -- we're looking to spend about $200 at the most for the both of us.  Thank you!

    I agree Chicago Cut Steakhouse is great. Other great restaurants are Benny’s Chop House , Keefer's Restaurant , or Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab . My absolute favorite is Joe's (I'm partial to the atmosphere there). Can't go wrong with any of the suggestions, though. Have fun!!

    You've definitely picked the right city for steaks!

    My top choice for a modern, yet classic steakhouse is Chicago Cut Steakhouse which is located right on the river so you also get a nice view! The service is great, and the steaks average about $50, so within your price range.

    Chicago Cut SteakhouseI haven't actually had a steak at Bavette's Bar and Boeuf , however I've heard great things and this is one of my favorite spots in Chicago at the moment. I love the trendy atmosphere and would be a different experience than a classic steakhouse.

    Last but not least, Mastro's Steakhouse is definitely worth checking out. It may be on the pricer side, but the steaks melt in your mouth, and the Lobster Mashed Potatoes and Gorgonzola Mac & Cheese will make it even more worth it.

    When I was in Chicago a few years ago, my friends and I went to a place called Gibsons Bar & Steakhouse that I was told was one of the best in town. AMAZING! And I'm singing that! I'm pretty sure you can get away with $200 for two there and still be able to experience apps, entree, dessert and a glass of wine. To give you an idea of cost, I think steaks go between $40-$100 there. I remember I got the smallest cut filet mignon which was on the lower price spectrum and one of my friends got the huge porterhouse for about $100. Both were great. I hope you and your friend have fun!

      This place sounds great. I'm not going to be doing the $100 porterhouse, but the low-mid range could work for us. Thank you Alana! · (1 likelikes)

    Definitely try Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab. It's amazing! Such great food. It might end up being a little more than $200 depending on what you order. Definitely try the corn as a side and the oysters rockefeller appetizer if awesome!

    Joe's Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab is one of my favorite restaurants anywhere, mainly for its steaks. Its famous for stone crab, but I think they have the best steaks in Chicago, as well. Service is great. Good wine list. If you order stone crabs (which you should), stick with the mediums... much, much better bang for your buck than the large or jumbo's.
