It’s all about the crab (okay, fresh seafood, too) at this perpetually packed north ’burb shack.

Bob Chinn's Crab House Restaurant Review

: To the point, eating here is more about a “feeding” frenzy rather than anything that resembles a pleasurable dining experience. Chinn's is one of the highest grossing restaurants in the United States and serves thousands of people a day --- but that’s not to say the food isn’t worthwhile. As you wait with a crowd in the holding pen for your table, it becomes apparent that the 600-plus seats are always filled. Admittedly, that’s a fact that taints the experience. Of course, you will not find finer crab --- prepared in a variety of ways --- nor will you often come across fresher seafood this side of Fisherman's Wharf. Steaks and fried chicken are served, too, in case there are landlubbers in the bunch.
