First we were seated next to another couple in the back part of the downstairs restaurant, next door to the noisy kitchen. My wife asked for a different table and we were moved without problem. The lighting downstairs is very dim - we observed one person using his cell phone light to read the menu. Our friendly waiter was somewhat... More

Devon Seafood Grill combined an appetizing traditional meal option, with great service and a fair and reasonable price for a perfect Thanksgiving experience. Twenty five years ago we decided to eat our Thanksgiving meals at local restaurants and we have done so for about 20 of those years. Devon Seafood Grill ranks right at the top of every experience we... More

Had a combo made for me - lobster tail and one jumbo crab cake and it was very good. Very fresh. Before that I had the gumbo soup which was ok. It was expensive dinner although we had a good bottle of wine so....

We passed Devon during a cab ride in the morning and thought it might be a good place for dinner. It was. We sat upstairs, which is the street level, by a window. So, in addition to having a delightful dinner, we could people watch on Wabash.

When in Chicago, we attempt to try new places to eat each time we are there. This time we found Devon's Seafood Grill on Chicago Avenue. We walked in, and the main floor is a bar area with the host stand. I assume you can order bar food and oysters up here at the bar... there weren't many people sitting... More

Nice food, real nice selection on the menu. Service made a bit confused impression. Kitchen ran out of a couple items, pretty amazing - out of tuna, mushrooms, baby carrots and Brussels sprouts. Baffling. Desserts on the house, still an interesting experience.

I had excellent mussels in a slightly spicy coconut broth, followed by the best scallops I have ever had. The scallops rest on a bed of cauliflower and had a touch of caviar on top, and chunks of pork that tasted like bacon around it - amazingly good. Staff was good, atmosphere nice, a very good restaurant that is attempting... More

Ordered surf and turf, this is a Seafood Rest., steak was eaten by me, rated an ok, not as good as Harry Caray's, wife ate lobster,... More

We visited here on a Monday night to celebrate my wife's birthday and it was an all around positive dining experience. We were seated at a nice table (booth) and promptly greeted by a very friendly server (Michael). The room temperature was a little cool. I also overheard another customer make a similar comment. However, the service was friendly and... More
