    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

    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.

    My first aged steak ... absolutely delicious. I would come back here in a second. (And the seafood tower was pretty good! I'm spoiled with super fresh seafood in boston tho)

    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.

    Warm popovers stand in for bread, filets are tender and rich, and brunch gets served in bento boxes with themes— “griddled” (pancakes and French toast) and “hangover” (burgers, fries and sunglasses). Read more

    They leave their rib eyes in their in-house, salt-tiled aging room for anywhere from 28 to 75 days, which imbues their cuts with a melt-in-your-mouth texture. Read more

    After your beef bacchanal, head upstairs and crash on the billion thread count sheets, then do it all over again tomorrow night. (Seriously, you’ll want to go back again and again). Read more

    Don’t have time to visit? Grab a brunch box to go on Sunday before you head to the airport. We like the Hangover (Mini Burgers and fries, Mac N’ Cheese with bacon & a Monte Cristo). Read more

    Excellent steak and sides. Don't forget to check in and show the waiter for a free appetizer. It was so incredible that it is almost unbelievable. Use the sommelier to make your wine selection!

    In town on business and instead of fighting traffic back to Rosemont at rush hour decided on dinner @ David Burke's. 50-day Rib Eye was excellent but I still prefer Gibson's! Mac n Cheese was great!

    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.

    The best meal I've ever eaten. The surf and turf dumplings (especially the jerk pork) were the perfect appetizer. The dry aged steak has such a distinct flavor. Tour the freezer after dinner!

    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

    Besides first-rate beef, this New York–style steak house boasts creative nonsteak options like tableside caesar salad, surf-and-turf dumplings, crackling pork shank, and a Slice of Prime. Read more

    It’s not your mama’s steakhouse, which means it’s also super kid-friendly: A children’s menu includes Kobe-beef corn dogs and a three-ounce filet mignon, plus a dessert menu with milk and cookies. Read more

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

    The 40 day dry aged burger is their underrated secret here. Try it and you'll realize that it's the best 12 bucks you ever spent. Comes with truffle oil french fries!

    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.

    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.

    Make sure to leave room for the Slice of Prime (a s’mores chocolate cake with graham cracker and marshmallow) and a batch of the Kickin’ Donuts: the ultimate interactive treat!

    The Lobster Bisque, Surf & Turf Dumplings, 40 Day Rib Eye, and Cheesecake Lollipop Tree were all fantastic! Ask for a tour of the steak aging room, it's pretty cool

    The Cake in a Can is worth the wait! And the extra batter is served before the cake arrives. Genius.

    Every dish is executed with precision, and steaks are aged in an on-site salt cave that controls the humidity and temperature. Steak sauce? Forget about it. Read more

    Love going here for lunch. I've ordered the burger every time because it's that good.

    Primehouse gives a nod and wink to an American classic with Kobe beef corn dogs. The two-inch links will remind you of childhood, but the juicy, plump texture and beefy flavor are all adult. Read more

    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.

    Wonderful service from Corey D. Skip the 40, go for the 55. Be prepared to take some home.

    I found the 75 day aged ribeye disappointing. Tough, not particularly flavorful. Awesome Caesar, sides, muffins, service, wines.
