We had a midweek early dinner here. The first level is an oyster bar and it was humming. We were seated downstairs where it is quieter, darker, and quite nice. The craft cocktail was excellent. We tried the charred tuna and scallops - both well prepared and presented. The scallops were a little more successful in this style. We had... More

It's been a while since I've been at this place, which at one point had higher standards. We went tonight to take advantage of the birthday discount of 25 dollars off an entree. It sounds good, but the service was so slow, and the food mediocre. Overall, my expectations were based on past experience when the service was excellent, and... More

We spent 3 nights in Chicago for a girls weekend. This restaurant was recommended by my daughter's friend. The food was excellent. Portions were reasonable, not too big, not too small. Value for the food we received was also excellent. If possible, use TA's reservation system - or go to Open Table. Reservations are recommended if you want to avoid... More

Remember when restaurants advertised that they were flying in fresh fish daily from Hawaii or Alaska or the Gulf of Mexico or Massachusetts? It was a rarity. Most fish was frozen, not fresh from the sea. No longer. Today, everybody flies in freshly caught fish from as far away as Greece. It's what you have to do to be competitive.... More

My husband and I were in Chicago on a mini honeymoon December 11th thru the 13th. We went to Devon Seafood Grill as our "big fancy meal" for the occasion and LOVED it. Kyleen was our server and she was awesome! Super friendly and personable...she also gave us some great recommendations (blue cheese stuffed olives, hello 😍). We enjoyed the... More

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....
