Went to Bob Chinns (again) on our most recent trip to Chicago. My wife and I always get a salad bar and split an order of King Crab Legs, maybe 2-3 pounds of meat. Great seafood in the Midwest.

Repeat customer for the superb steamed king crab! The valet service repeatedly blocks access to ~10% of the Handicap parking spaces.

We we ever move from the Chicago area, far and away, this would be the number one restaurant I would miss the most. Food is outstanding and the wait staff all engaged and personable.
