Bob Chinn's Crab House Restaurant Review

: This massive, north suburban mainstay since 1982 perpetually fills its 700 seats with folks looking to feast on crab, crab and more crab. The menu ranges from Alaskan king crab legs to crab meat fried rice, soft shell crab and crab cakes, plus a variety of super-fresh seafood: live lobsters plucked from the restaurant’s in-house tanks; fresh catches of the day; shrimp and scallops. For the landlubbers, steaks, fried chicken and lamb chops don’t disappoint.
