Elegant & Modern Design

Perry’s Vernon Hills, designed in partnership with the renowned restaurant architect Aria Group
Architects, Inc., will offer an expansive main dining room with views at every angle from a glance at chef creations in the kitchen to glimpses of Perry’s Bar 79® through the towering wine wall. From the vibrant color palette to its exquisite use of glass, lighting, and other textures, every detail in the restaurant is selected to create an inviting environment to enjoy an intimate dinner, a business meeting, an elegant event….even Perry’s Famous Pork Chop Friday Lunch (the only day of the week the steakhouse opens for lunch).

The new location also includes four beautifully appointed private dining rooms ideal for corporate functions and family celebrations, serving parties from 8 up to 84. A dedicated sales manager will assist you with the specially-curated menus that can be tailored to any taste.

Guests will also revel in the energy at Perry’s Bar 79, named after the year Perry’s was founded, and will delight in sipping handcrafted cocktails and award-winning wines including Perry’s reserve wines at the dazzling island bar with glass walls that open to patio dining that seats approximately 45 guests.
A Rare and Well Done® Dining Experience
Perry’s enjoys three key attributes that have become characteristic of the signature brand: the award-winning menu, the impeccable service, and the vibrantly elegant, yet comfortable atmosphere. For over four decades, Perry’s has been skillfully carving up those three elements for its patrons to deliver an experience that is truly Rare and Well Done®.

Perry’s has remained true to its roots with its butcher-fresh Prime USDA-Aged steaks, signature tableside carvings, flamed desserts, as well as its flagship menu item – a mouth-watering, seven-finger high pork chop. Other fan favorites include signature steak additions as well as innovative seafood entrees created by Perry’s Master Development Chef Rick Moonen, a Celebrity Chef, a member of the American Culinary Hall of Fame and the nation’s leading authority on sustainable seafood.

More than four decades ago, Perry’s first restaurant opened in Houston in 1979 as a modest meat market called Perry’s Butcher Shop and Deli. In 1986, Bob Perry’s son, Chris, persuaded his father to add dining tables, paving the way for an expansion and inspiring Chris Perry to open Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille in 1993. In addition to steakhouses in 11 markets throughout the United States, Perry’s Restaurants also includes Perry & Sons Market & Grille (the original butcher shop), CARVE American Grille, and VERDAD True Modern Mexican.
Perry’s Famous Pork Chop
An unexpected steakhouse specialty, Perry’s Famous Pork Chop is a mouth-watering chop measuring seven fingers high — just as butchers measured back in the day. Sweet, smoky, and sizzling, the chop is butchered in-house, rubbed with proprietary seasoning, cured and roasted on a rotisserie with pecan wood for up to six hours. Upon order, the chop is glazed, caramelized, and topped with Perry’s Signature Steak Butter, then carved tableside (during dinner service only). A recipe perfected over four decades, the pork chop is plated as three portions: the “eyelash” (the most marbled, tender, melt-in-your-mouth section above the eye of the chop), three baby-back ribs and the center-cut loin.

Perry’s iconic Pork Chop Friday® Lunch features a lunch-cut portion of the chop, whipped potatoes and homemade applesauce for $19 on Fridays from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. (the only day of the week when Perry’s is open for lunch service).  The first Pork Chop Friday Lunch at Vernon Hills will be held on Friday, April 19, 2024. The pork chop lunch special is also available TO-GO every Friday from 10:30 a.m. – 5 p.m.

For guests who want to bring the Perry’s experience directly to their door, Perry’s Famous Pork Chop is available to ship fully cooked from Perry’s Steakhouse Online Market , arriving frozen with dry ice and includes instructions on how to heat. Additional items available from Perry’s Steakhouse Online Market include Prime Steaks, Perry’s Signature Steak Seasoning, Steak Butter, sauces, sides, Perry’s Steak Knives, Wine Glasses, and seasonal specials.
