Family Friendly Eats: Bob Chinn’s Crab House
Approximately an hour north of Chicago, you can find Bob Chinn’s Crab House located in Wheeling, Illinois at 393 S. Milwaukee Avenue. Plan on driving. Whether you are taking children with you or not, be sure to pack a light snack for this ride.
For a family friendly restaurant, the dining experience will not be cheap. Keep in mind, you are not paying for ambiance; but you are paying for fresh top quality food. If you are not a fan of seafood, you will find chicken, lamb, pork, and beef on the menu.
Since I was at a restaurant that specialized in seafood, you know what I ate. WARNING: The menu is extensive so don’t get overwhelmed.
For starters, I had the Crab Cake Nuggets. The nuggets were packed with crab. The breading was light and contained what tasted like potato sticks. The potato sticks gave the nugget extra crunch.
I chose Lobster Meat for my entrée. They cook the Lobster Meat a variety of ways. I had the Lobster Meat stir fried with asparagus & chow fun noodles. There is one word to describe this dish, AWESOME. I appreciated tasting the freshness of the seafood.
They also offer craft beers, wine and a few mixed drinks. Just remember that if you are driving, to drink responsibly.
The experience at Bob Chinn’s Crab House was worth the drive and the price.
