We were scared to try something new so we went to Outback and It was SAILORS everywhere!!!!!!!
There are many great steak places in Chicago, of course.
Two right downtown, good steak, not outrageously priced, and not far from Navy Pier --
Lawry's The Prime Rib is great for prime rib, but also has other good steaks.
Weber Grill also has good "grilled" steaks :] [and smells wonderful]
