Carmichael's is a true gem located in the revived West loop. It is old Chicago with real style. A phenomenal culinary experience with a fabulous outdoor patio and a hearty Steakhouse dining room.

Of course no meal is complete without the delectable desserts our Chef prepares. Our centrally located restaurant is right off 290 and 94, complimentary Valet parking for every guest who dines at the restaurant. Located just a few blocks from the Opera House and the Theater district, a few minutes to the United Center, it is always nice to take advantage of our complimentary Carmichael's shuttle to and from all events at the United Center. Within Carmichael's we have 3 private dining rooms ranging in size for special and private dining. The comfortable atmosphere, inviting staff and the impressive dining experience will be one you will only find here at Carmichael's.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Just like most of the reviews that we read, the food was excellent, the service was exceptional and friendly. The only negative was that the main course was served too fast. We barely finished our salad and they brought the dinner. We were in no hurry so this was disturbing. The next time we go back, when their outdoor area is open, we will not order the main course until we are finished with the salad to avoid this problem. Complementary valet parking is a great plus for restaurants in this area. The menu was varied enough that one could go to this restaurant and not spend very much. The sandwiches looked good and were reasonably priced. If the entrée salads were as good as the small salads they are also a bargin. "

  • "I'm a tough audience. I don't give many places four stars and almost none get five. Often, a place is so average I don't bother reviewing it at all. So, consider Carmichaels to be graded on a curve, in comparison to the other 6-10 steak places I go to more often. The food hear is good and the service likewise. Staff will accommodate requests when they can and the host stand is arrogance-free. The sesame-crusted tuna is excellent and the steaks meet Chicago steakhouse standards. I had the lamb chops last time and they were difficult to manage--a bit tough and smothered with a sauce that really added nothing but mess to the meal. Overall, this is a good restaurant, but I still haven't found anything there that makes it special. IMO."

  • "Another great visit. Everytime we go we are treated like old friends. We stopped here for dinner on the way to the airport for our trip to Paris. We wanted a great meal before 15 hours of air travel. And got it."

  • "Nice place, tastefully deco. My steak was good but my starter was better! We had the Lobster Tempura, I would good back just for that."

  • "Really nice place not in the usual "north of the river, two blocks either side of Michigan Ave" area frequented by visitors. This one is located on the south side of the river just a short cab ride from the shopping district and not far from the trains in a nice neighborhood. Food and service were just really great and the prices quite in line with what they serve you. It was a nice treat for us to find a "new" restaurant and we plan to return again when in town next."

  • "Thank you so much for an outstanding evening. The steak I ordered was one of the best I have ever had. If you are thinking about skipping dessert, don't! Their selection is superb. Thank you to the staff for making us feel very welcome even as we accidentally stayed late. Thank you guys! I will recommend this place to everyone I know!"

  • "First time here, wanted to stay close to home. After reading all the other reviews, knew I wanted to check it out. Glad I did. Steak was very good, a little pricey, but worth it. Had great Service, from all the staff. Like the free valet. Plan to return again!"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "The only problem I had was we had to continually look for our waitress. She was I a rush the whole night. She kept running over to another table. Holding what I thought was friendly but long. Two other waitresses actually continually ask us if everything was okay. One brought us butter, another one just checked on us. We so appreciated both of them. Our waitress didn't have time for us because she was busy entertaining another table. I don't know if they were friends of hers or not. I just wished she would have not rushed with us. My husband enjoyed the steak but the service; he was not pleased at all."

  • "It had been a while since I had dined here. I always remembered the food being quite good. The one disappointment was that outer entrees were barely warm! Rather disappointing when dining out for a nice dinner. The taste and flavor was on point. I still intend to revisit whether it be for appetizers or just drinks, but not sure I would invest in full course dinner at this point."

  • "Forget all of the other steakhouses! Carmichael's does steak right. And unpretentiously so. Please don't go here or else it may get so crowded that I won't be able to get a table as easily! I kid....go, and go often."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "As always, the service was great. It was refreshing to be able to be seated at our table before the rest of our party arrived so that we could order drinks and an appetizer. Juan, our server, was professional yet very friendly. He was food knowledgeable and make good recommendations. The food was excellent as always."

  • "Went to the restaurant prior to Black Hawks game with little time to spare. Wait staff provided excellent sevice in prompt fashion and the food was exceptional. Can't wait to go back."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "I've been there twice and both times they screwed up our order or food. This time my wife ordered a fillet medium, and it came out so well done that the outside looked like charcoal. They remade the steak but that took about a half hour, with my food and our sides just sitting there getting cold. Plus got charged for everything, they didn't comp a thing. I actually like the food (lobster tempura is fantastic) but I'm not sure I'm going there again."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "My first experience at Carmicheals was amazing. The food was mouth watering and perfectly prepared. I've been to the more lauded (and much more expensive) steakhouses in Chicago, and none of them were better than Carmichaels. I'll be back."

  • "Carmichaels is a real gem the service and quality of food are outstanding. I had a group of customers out for a Hawks game and the staff made every effort to get us seated and served during a very busy night and we were able to have a very high quality meal in a short time. The shuttle to the game was very helpful also...."

  • "I had reservations here for my birthday. I have been wanting to visit this establishment since I moved into the West Loop. It was everything I expected. The ambiance was very nice, the food was excellent, and the service was great. We started with the lobster tempura, which was very good. I highly recommend it for an appetizer. We both had steak for our main course. I had the NY strip and was completely satisfied. The only issue we had was that the waiter did not make us aware of the daily specials and we may have ordered something different if I would have known that they had specials. Other then that, it was a great experience and I will definitely be back."

  • "Had a great night at Carmichael's, which has always been my expriences there. I actually misread my reservation, and showed up a half hour early on a pretty busy night. No worries though, they were very understanding, and found a way to seat us right away. Our server was Nina who was very attentive to us, and you could tell she truly wanted us to have a great time. Would recommend to others for a great steakhouse in the West Loop."
