In 1982, when fresh seafood in the Midwest was virtually unheard of, Bob Chinn took the gamble of his life by opening a Crab House in a small suburb outside of Chicago. Sourcing the best quality seafood from both coasts, Alaska, Hawaii, Australia coupled with a unique dining experience and great service made Bob Chinn’s Crab House an immediate success.

Almost four decades, two expansions and three generations later, Bob Chinn’s has grown to be a fixture not only on the Midwest dining scene, but also a nationally recognized institution.

We are thrilled to welcome you as a part of our team and a member of our Crab House family. We consider this restaurant as an extension of our own home and strive to make this a place of success, camaraderie, inclusion and priceless experiences for all of our team members.

We believe that unparalleled food and outstanding customer service at the best value never goes out of style. We hope to instill into each and every one of our teammates that we are not just a restaurant but rather a venue of celebration, memories and tradition.  Guests choose Bob Chinn’s Crab House because they expect a certain experience and we have a commitment to make a wonderful, lasting impression that will have them wanting to come back time and again.

Being in the business for as long as we have, it is important for us to share our knowledge with our teammates and guests. Coaching staff on our establishment’s history, our extensive menu, who we are as a family, how, where and why we source our goods and why every facet of the restaurant is vital to the integrity of our brand is just a small part of our responsibility to you.

We are extremely proud of our company, our products and the individuals who make up our organization. As a new member of our team, we would like to provide you with all necessary tools to succeed here and beyond. It is our goal to foster a satisfying, rewarding and most importantly enjoyable work place.

Thank you and welcome to Bob Chinn’s Crab House!

Marilyn Chinn LeTourneau, Carly LeTourneau, Maile LeTourneau and the entire Chinn Family
