    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

    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)

    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.

    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.

    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

    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

    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.

    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 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

    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!

    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!

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

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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

    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

    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.
