Bob Chinn's Crabhouse: "Best Seafood in the Chicago area!" Bob Chinn's Crabhouse Tip by lisha74

Bob Chinn's Crabhouse, Chicago: 1 reviews and 0 photos

One of my all-time favorite restaurants. It's located in Wheeling, so you'll need a car to get there, but its so worth the drive. Fresh seafood flown in daily (they post the shipping labels by the entrance so you can see what's just arrived), all prepared to Bob's specifications. The menu changes daily based on what's come in that day. And you'll often see Bob himself walking between tables, stopping to ask how you like your food.

Favorite Dish: Where do I start? Jonah Stone Crab Claws, Louisiana Blue Crab Claws, Fish prepared Asian-Style (can be anything from salmon to halibut), the list goes on and on. . .

Definitely try the Mai Tai's, and either Bob's Slice of Paradise or the Luau Cake for dessert!
