Calumet Fisheries

Some say this little shack-sized restaurant on the west bank of the Calumet River serves some of the best seafood in Chicago. Fish and shellfish are smoked over a natural wood fire after marinating overnight; salmon and shrimp are among the favorites. Calumet Fisheries has been in business since 1928. The building used to be on 92nd Street, but many years ago it was carried three blocks downriver by a scow and now sits at the foot of the 95th Street bridge. (Trivia buffs note: This is the bridge Dan Aykroyd jumped off at the beginning of 'The Blues Brothers.').
