"It seems that nothing can stop Amy Morton -- not the actress -- but the lady who's been taking Chicago's restaurant scene by storm." - ChicagoNow 

"When I think back on my meals at the Barn Steakhouse, I will think of the steak... It felt like a break from regular life. That was something to celebrate." - Chicago Reader

"Nostalgia is great if you get the dosage right. The Barn Steakhouse, the latest Evanston restaurant by Amy Morton, pretty much does." - Chicago Tribune

"The food is solid, the space is welcoming and I get a kick out of the visuals." - Chicago Tribune

"With its cement floors, chicken pot pie and family recipe lasagna, not to mention the fact that it’s housed in a literal barn, you could be forgiven for viewing this cozy hideaway as a humble nook for comfort food." - Zagat


Morton, of Found Kitchen and Social House, didn’t have to look far. Her father, legendary Chicago-born restaurateur Arnie Morton, founded Morton’s Steakhouses. The Barn Steakhouse pays homage to him and the classic American steakhouses he helped inspire, as well as the needs and desires of today's diner.

Set inside a restored 19th century brick barn, the Evanston restaurant features Heritage Black Angus steaks from local purveyor Meats by Linz, as well as other refined dishes ranging from bison bolognese and steak tartare to roasted vegetables provençal. An extensive selection of Old and New World wine offerings and creative cocktails round out the modern steakhouse experience that The Barn Steakhouse has perfected.

Our Steaks

Choosing the steaks that would be featured on The Barn Steakhouse’s menu involved an intensive research and tasting process by owner Amy Morton and her team that not only included texture, flavor and visual qualities but socially conscious practices as well. Meats by Linz, a family-owned business in nearby Calumet City with more than 50 years of experience, won hands down. “We chose them based on flavor,” says Morton. “Then knowing their mindfulness and personal commitment to being the best stewards of the planet made Meats by Linz a perfect partner for us. They’re not a cookie-cutter business and neither is The Barn Steakhouse.”

“When partnering with a restaurateur like Amy Morton, we knew only the most consistent and best tasting product would do—that's exactly what we are providing with this elite program." –Matt Rotroff, Director, Business Development, Meats by Linz
