    Any excuse to visit Ditka's works for me. On Saturday I met a friend for brunch. She'd never visited the restaurant before so we were more thoroughly going thru the menu more than I usually do since I'm quite familiar with it. Suddenly she looked up and said: Chicken & Waffles! I only heard about Chicken & Waffles about 4 or 4 years ago but had never had it before. I thought I'd be adventurous. I was NOT disappointed. Sure enough it was WONDERFUL. I say try it; you'll love it. Our waitress, Alice, was a delight --- friendly and attentive without being intrusive --- as were the rest of the staff. Thanks again, Coach, for a lovely brunch.

  • Could have been perfect
    tabletalk
    Dined on 8/24/2014
    The crab bisque was delicious, the filets were perfect, the service was excellent. Everything was great, except that had hoped for a special evening together and, even with a small party, couldn't hear each other over the din. Even with a reservation on a Sunday evening when the restaurant didn't seem very busy, they seated us in the noisiest booth in the house - in the bar right by the bustling open kitchen. Probably should have asked to be moved, but that would have been awkward with our party. So if you want to enjoy conversation as well as food, ask for a quieter area when you make your reservation. Not sure it's very quiet anywhere, but don't get stuck where we did.

    Dined on 8/23/2014
    Our 34th anniversary, asked for a booth, got a table way in the back, dropped items off the menu we wanted, disappointed, Our waitress Meagan was rushing us through the entire meal, I was still eating my salad when the entrée came, she kept on trying to close out the check with us, then to really insult us, she brought over 2 glasses of bad champagne!! Needless to say we left the champagne and left the restaurant. We have patronized Ditka's 50+ times and this was the absolute worse meal I have had. I don't think we will be back any time soon, not that Mgmt even cares. Did I bring this to the attention of the Manager, No, they wanted to closed the section we were seated in, our bus boy was more attentive and courteous then the waitress.

    Been here several times, no complaints on food or service. It is so noisy though. Back part is so large that everything echoes and it is hard to have a conversation at the table without constantly having to shout. That's the only reason we don't come here more often. That and they are terrible at being on time with reservations.

    Not a good experience this time. Had to wait over an hour for our food. Had three children ages 7, 5, and 2, always well behaved, but because they were hungry, they became irritable. Waiter came three times to say the kitchen was behind and we finally asked for bread which I then found out we had to request it - thought they could have done that without asking since there was a delay. I am sure the business patrons did not wait an hour for their lunch.

    We have eaten at this Ditka's location several times. This evening was as wonderful as all the others. Everyone except me had steak and they said it was terrific. I had a meal of small items - a dinner salad, shrimp cocktail and corn cake. All of them were delicious. We also enjoyed the peanut butter pie and banana cream pies. Our servers were polite and attentive.

    We have dine at Ditka's many times. Downtown Chicago and Oak Brook. This time very disappointing. The service was very slow and I had 1 child and 2 special needed men with us. We ordered 2 apps. The Nacho's which were always a favorite were terrible. Dry,very little meat,no cream cheese. Not good.From the time we finished our apps, it took server 20 mins. to take our dinner order. We just sat there. It was not busy either. I have told many to go there and I won't anymore..We were there to celebrate a birthday too.. Not good...

    Saturday was our 39th wedding anniversary. Our daughter had given us a gift card to Ditka's, so we decided to visit. Every aspect of our dinner was excellent. The service was not only prompt and courteous it was truly friendly. The restaurant Manager greeted us at our table and provided the names of the Chicago Icons that we were unable to identify.

    Heard a lot of good things about the steaks at Ditka's. Their prices were not as bad as I was expecting. We had a booth sat at the bar area. The preparation and quality of the steak was superb. Nice attentive and attractive waitress always helps. I was put off by the fact that the underground parking lot had no access to the restaurant after 7pm so I had to do a lot of driving around before just using the valet.

    Took my husband here for his 33rd bday. Neither of us had ever been, but we'd passed it many times over the years, and I was looking for a place that was known for the best burgers in Oakbrook. I did a google search a few days before his bday for "the best burger in oakbrook, il" and Ditka's came up. I read some reviews on Trip Advisor, then booked our reservation. When we got there, the front parking lot which is right at the main entrance to the restaurant was under construction, so we had to park in back of the building. That was the only problem that occurred for us. Naiomi was a wonderful waitress, and our food and my hub's bday was very special thanks to you guys! We will definitely be back.

    Two had famous Pork Chops which were DRY, thank God for the Cherry Gravy. The Ribs where also dry and the BBQ was spices, but the menu did not mention spices. The Min. Hamburger and Diablo pasta were ok because we asked that the spices be taken off before serving the pasta. Overall this special occasion was not what I hoped it would be. I had a Lung Transplant three yrs. ago on 8/4. Would I come back? No the restaurant was my call, and it turned out to be Bad.

    Went to Ditkas for a birthday celebration for my son. The food was not great. My son had a burger that was very bland. J Alexanders is much better. I had a halibut dish that was almost dry and not very tasty. Other diners had the chicken piccata with dried out gnocchi on it. The service was not great. This is the only good restaurant I have been to that did not do anything special for the birthday boy. We left dissatisfied.

    We visit D's all the time.Til last Sun we have always been totally pleased w/ the food, wait staff, atmosphere, etc. Unfortunately, we were seated in an area served by a waiter who was disengaged to just this side of rudeness, bothered by our mere existence, unprofessional & lazy.He never returned to refill a soft drink although the empty glass was clearly visible to him, didn't take our coupon amount from the total bill although presented upon being seated & was obviously unhappy with his job.My guest got a refill for her Coke at the bar, we flagged down the manager to adjust the bill & instead of 20% plus on the full price of the check as I would have done, left just under 20% on the reduced amount.This guy is an onion in a petunia patch.
