Nostalgic, my-kind-of-town steak house near the United Center.
This casual steak house features a huge outdoor patio with a bell on a post that the owners ring at happy hour -- a family tradition. The wood-trimmed room is adorned with posters recalling the Chicago stockyards and worlds fairs, and pianist Professor John sometimes entertains with New Orleans jazz. The house drink is a martini with stuffed olives, and the menu is equally classic. For lighter appetites, the tenderloin tips appetizer on a mound of crunchy onion rings is an option, though it's still large.
