My favorite place for steaks in Chicago. Smaller and less refined than the bigger boys, but the steaks are out of this world. Great atmosphere as well. Not to be missed.

The Saloon Steak House is a very nice place to go for dinner. Very nice menu selection, the food is great along with the atmosphere and service. Prices are a little high, but they are pretty much everywhere in Chicago!

We had some interesting items: fois gras. Great specials.

Steak was delicious. The service was very friendly and the atmosphere was fun. Not stuffy at all.

Going to the Saloon Steakhouse is a really good time. I have never gone there and not had fun. The people that are there are always happy. You cant go wrong with their steak (especially the 16 oz filet mignon) but you have to try the bacon scallion mashed potatos.

We were greeted rudely by the host because we were 10 minutes late. We were told that he had "other diners to accomodate on this busy night" when only half the tables were filled by the time we had finished dinner. The food was above average. The service was at best mediocre. The setting was not bad--however, we were told by a nearby diner to keep it down because we were "spoiling her dining experience" when in actuality we were speaking at conversation level. If you like to be treated rudely, burn a hole in your wallet for above average food and mediocre service, and be told by elitists that you are ruining their night of dinner, I suggest you try the Saloon Steakhouse. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

My wife and I made reservations here before going to see "Spelling Bee" at the Drury Lane Theatre, which is just up the street. We were seated quickly and our server was excellent, taking care of cocktails and our orders. The food was top-notch all around, soup and salad, I had filet medallions with bleu cheese and my wife had a petit filet. Mine was a little overcooked but excellent none the less. The au gratin potatoes were made with pepperjack cheese of some sort and were the best we have every tasted, just the right amount of zip. The servers bring around a tray of different cuts of steak if you need help in deciding what to order.

The restaurant was really crowded and hot on a Saturday evening. Steak was good. Service was really good! Grilled chicken caesar salad was also good. Go there if you have the money.

Pros: chocolate martinis :), good service

Cons: ambience, crowded

I went to Saloon looking forward to a juicy, melt-in-my-mouth kobe (wagyu) steak. I ordered medium-rare, and got medium/medium-well...I would've sent it back, but after waiting almost 1 hour for my food, I decided to just suck it up and eat it.

The mashed potatoes were fantastic, and the martinis were top-notch...however, the fact that they screwed up my kobe filet is just inexcusable.

Frankly, I'm surprised it's rated so high.

I have eaten there a couple of times, and there food is the best I have ever had. I had the Wagyu New York Strip, which was outstanding and cooked exactly the way I wanted it. The Baked Oysters Rockefeller are so good. The cheesy Gratin Potatoes are to die for. I don't think that you could ever leave there unhappy. They might need a wheel chair to wheel you out, because the food is so awesome you will want to finish it all. The staff was so nice and polite both times that I went there. If you want a great meal with great service, you will definitely have to stop by there.

This was probably one of the best steak houses that I've ever been to. The service was excellent, they do a very nice "meat presentation" before you order - so you know exactly what your options are. I had the Kobe Beef Filet and Au Gratin Potatoes, some of the best stuff I've ever eaten. The waitress was also able to suggest a nice wine to go with it. Be sure to make a reservation, this place gets packed. If I'm ever back in Chicago, I would definitely make a stop here again!!

I have lived in the city for a few years and I am actually surprised I haven't heard of this place.
I was on a first date and he took me to the Saloon where we were immediately welcomed by the hostess. The waitstaff was phenomenal and even more importantly my bone-in steak, bacon bits mashed potatoes and asparagus was probably one of the best meals I've had in the city. It was a little loud but the ambience was worth going I will definitely be back and I'll be brining my friends along as well. Very impressed.

Great place to spot those famous athlets, great sophisticated atmoshere, near the Hancock Tower, what more can you ask for. Oh and did I mention that you can get in there faster than Gibsons, and there steaks are just as tasty.

More about Saloon Steak House

Chicago's classic independently owned steakhouse. We feature naturally raised beef, award wining wine list, big martinis and an outstanding single-malt sotch selection. The Saloon is also able to host private and semi-private events.

While it has good beef and some decent sides, The Saloon Steakhouse misses the boldness and bravura of some of the city's glossier steakhouses. Nevertheless, its location, just a block off of bustling Michigan Avenue, makes it a draw for…
