    Amazing dry aged steaks AND kid friendly? You bet! If you ask, the tour of the dry aging room is worth a peek.

    Surprisingly good cocktail program here, including some barrel aged. You've never had anything like the Petit Confit (whistlepig, absinthe, duck infused white wine).

    This spot has been named the #1 steakhouse in Chicago. Try the 55 or 75-day dry aged rib-eye steak or the 40-day prime steak burger. ProTip: Dry aged steaks can be purchased for home grilling. Read more

    Try the 55-day - I liked it better then the 75. If you're feeling ambitious, go for the cake in a can! Also fun to tour the aging room after.

    I'm still drooling over their red velvet cake in a can. You have to order it at the start of the meal because it takes about 40 minutes. It's worth the wait.

    The food is good here, but I wouldn't say this is the best steak house in the Midwest. Copper rock has cheaper steaks that blow this place's steaks out of the water! Staff wears jeans..looks so tacky

    You do taste the notes of blue cheese in the 55 day aged bone in ribeye. The bacon on a stick, more appropriately named pork belly on a stick, was also the epitome of smoky sweet goodness.

    Mixed feelings. Tried the 55-day ribeye. It was quite good, and among the better cuts of meat I've tried. But service was awful and steaks are, IMHO, 20-30% overpriced. Caesar Salad was delicious.

    The bacon for appetizer was delicious!! Also love the cheesecake for dessert. Of you have a lot of guests and not enough room in your belly, these bite size cheesecakes are perfect.

    Omg. The 55 day dry aged steak was undoubtably the best steak I've ever tasted in my life. And they even have a 75 day old! The mac&cheese was amazing. And the bread puffs. This place is so worth it.

    Not really a fan. The filet came out overdone and the truffle fries tasted like McDonald's with some truffle oil. Lunch special was reasonably priced but the quality was not up to expectations.
