Bob Chinn's Crab House
It's big, noisy, and crowded, but it remains a Chicago favorite for seafood. This restaurant boasts one of the highest volumes of customers in the country. The crab, not surprisingly, ranks as the specialty, and a fresh catch is flown in daily, always served either grilled or steamed.
Wife and I were very much disappointed again tonight. The manager met us at the head of the line without smile, nor greetings. Both of our orders were extremely poor taste, very salty. The steak was tasteless and like a cardboard; fish was extremely salty. We both got up at about 2 O'Clock in the morning, couldn't sleep and very thirsty. Servers and workers at the restaurant were not as good as in the past. Being Asians and regular customers since 1988, we were sorry to witness this place taking a big dive in all quality in the last year or two. We got disappointed too many times. Our opinions are that the food and services are very poor and not worth it.
We come here once in a while over the past 10 years or so. I did notice that the lines have gotten smaller and the the place is now less crowded. It may be the economy or that the food/service has gotten sloppy. It s most likely both.
The service has gotten slow and a little indifferent. The food also suffered somewhat from higher prices and less consistent results. On few occasions the meat was either undercooked or overcooked. We have not noticed a change in the quality of the seafood.
There was a health related issue lately; a few people have gotten sick from the food and the health department was involved. This incident definitely raised a red flag. As one reviewer noted, some of the food is served on wooden plates and the cleanliness of them is a concern.
There are not many places where you can get a nicely prepared Alaskan king crab and aged flavorful steak. There are issues, however we may still return.
I developed a terrible red rash all over my body after eating a meal at Bob Chinn's restaurant in Wheeling. This never happened to me before. I suppose I am allergic to something but I don't know what it could be.
There is nothing better then being filed in line like your at Great America and paying BIG $$$$ to eat off of plastic plates. The MIGRAIN of the evening was the NEVER ENDING LOUP OF JULIO IGLASIAS MUSIC!!! The staff said it was pure torture because they have to listen to it day and night. : (

I wrote a bad review on 9/9/2010 about the crappy experience that we had. now it's gone... Hmmmm, how the heck did that happen... BOB CHINS does not care about there customers!!!! What do they care, there is always someone else walking through the door... Your corporate dept. should be working at Wall-Mart!!!
It is not like it used to be 5 years ago. Doesn't worse wait and money at all. The food was ok, you can get same taste in chinese buffett for the fraction of price, the service was ok, probably like some chain restaurant. The price is fancy, the food and service is cheep.
