Description: For over a million diners every year, Bob Chinn's Crab House delivers the ultimate seafood experience. 

Located just outside of Chicago, Chinn's is the fourth highest-grossing restaurant in the country -- and, with the capacity to seat over 600 people, it's also one of the largest. Seafood impresario Bob Chinn has never let little details like time zones obstruct his commitment to serving the freshest fish and shellfish around. Did he figure out how to harvest bay scallops and Alaskan king crab from Lake Michigan? Not quite. Every day, salmon from the Copper River in Alaska, stone crabs from Florida, and halibut from Kona, Hawaii, arrive in the heartland to be cooked with care and served with flair to hundreds of happy diners at a time. 

Bob Chinn's Crab House Cookbook features the recipes that have earned the restaurant a devout following the world over. Recipes range from such American classics as rich New England Clam Chowder and Cajun Shrimp to innovative, cuisine-bending dishes like succulent Sashimi Salad, King Crab Ravioli, and fiery Chile Yabbies. For those initiates of the Chinn's experience, the signature dishes are all here, from the highly touted, mouthwatering Garlic Crab to the Chinn family favorite Marilyn's Crab Crispies. 

An ensemble of crowd-pleasing desserts rounds off the list, as Bob shares his secrets to preparing the perfect Key Lime Pie and Pear Cheesecake, among other sweet delights. Few restaurateurs have the vision, skill,and savvy that have enabled Bob Chinn to create and maintain such a renowned restaurant, always keeping the standards for customer service and fresh food equally high. This is hearty fare for hearty appetites. This is the Midwest after all...and this is Bob Chinn's Crab House.
