Staying at the James Hotel, Primehouse a good dinner option?

I am traveling to Chicago soon and am staying at the James Hotel. I have heard raves about the steakhouse in the hotel, Primehouse. I have been to the Primehouse in New York, and really enjoy it, but I don't know if they are similar and what the general consensus is. Would love to know about this place and other steakhouse recommendation as I am in town for only 2 nights.

    1. Great place - you have to get the cheesecake lollipop tree for dessert - fun and tasty! I have not been to the one in NY, so I can't compare. Dinner was very good - service is superb. Had the honor of taking a cooking lesson there - chef Dino is incredible - and a really nice guy! I would definately go back again. JBar - the nightclub next door is fun too, after dinner.

      1. Prime house if probably the best steakhouse in Chicago, I cant think of one that does it better, especially if you are a fan of dry aged beef.

        The other top steakhouses in my opinion are:

        Joe's Seafood, Prime Steaks, and Stone Crab

        enjoy your meals/visit.

        1. this is by far my favorite steakhouse in chicago.. i have to say it was one of the best steaks i have ever had. I HAD ALOT OF STEAKS!!!!!
