The more traveling you do, the more you get involved in hotels and restaurants and tourist attractions. As native Chicagoans, my wife and I have been pleasantly surprised to discover more and more outstanding restaurants, places we've never heard of before but became aware of because friends knew of my ties to TripAdvisor and made recommendations. Now I have a long list guaranteed to put me on a diet. But we love to compare one Italian restaurant to another, one Eggs Benedict to another, one tiramisu to another, one shrimp cocktail to another, one spaghetti and meatballs to another, one thin crust pizza to another, one Italian beef sandwich to another. Which brings us to Stevens' restaurant in Gurnee, Illinois, a classic steakhouse with a stylish white tablecloth setting. Located at 401 North Riverside Drive, at the northeast corner of US Route 21 and Washington Street in the northern suburb, it opened in 2004 and has attracted a loyal following with its finely aged steaks and chops and fresh seafood and extensive martini and wine lists. Chicago is a steakhouse town and I'm always interested to see how one steakhouse tries to get an edge over its competitors. Stevens' offers a dish I can't resist, an eight-ounce Beef Wellington in a traditional puff pastry. Yummy. We started with shrimp cocktail, Caesar salad and a unique but tasty crab brie soup. For her entree, my wife chose red snapper, a delicious fish that isn't found on many menus north of Sarasota, Florida. For sides, we ordered a baked potato, wild rice, creamed spinach and green beans. For dessert, we shared Bundt cake with Bailey's sauce and ice cream, another unique but very tasty dish. Stevens' menu also included several other tempting options, including Pistachio perch, veal medallions, 12-ounce bone-in veal chop and New Zealand lamb chops. But don't pass up the Beef Wellington.

I went here to grab a bite and kill some time before I was to meet some friends at six flags.

Wow was I impressed!! This place is over the top and the service was great. I was solo but was very very happy with the personalized service that I was given.

I highly recommend the bisque soup it’s to die for :) !! I also ordered some oysters that for being inland was surprisingly good.

Even though it is located in a strip mall front, overall a very nice high end fine dining experience.

Steaks, fish, chicken picatta, wedge salads and the best crab Brie soup. It was all good. Start with the coconut shrimp. Waiter was great. Noise level was good, easy to talk.
