A word from Harry Caray's 7th Inning Stretch
Harry Caray's 7th Inning Stretch will be part of a 23,000+ square foot high-energy complex combining dining, entertainment, private event venues and retail at Water Tower Place. The menu will feature Executive Chef Joe Rosetti's spin on classic American comfort food, including inventive burgers, farm fresh salads, oven-fired pizzas and hand-dipped milkshakes dominate. Alongside the menu will be a wide selection of local craft beers, Chicago-inspired cocktails and a carefully curated wine list.

The walls will be covered with photographs from Harry Caray’s private collection as well as authentic sports memorabilia. HDTVs throughout the dining room and bar will be tuned in to all major sporting events. Newly installed floor-to-ceiling windows will provide diners with stunning city views. The urban industrial aesthetic is an homage to Chicago’s historic Water Tower.

    The last time I was at Harry Caray's Italian Steakhouse we had great food and terrific service. I thought the brand quality would have carried over for a more casual venue and paired down menu. We went with a group of seven. While the waitress tried serving the tables she had the place was by no means full - I guess there was not enough staff to handle the patrons they did have. It became obvious this is place to capture tourist dollars. I have never written a bad restaurant review - takes a lot to get me to think about damaging the reputation of a business, but for the drinks, dinners and even the dessert that took a half hour to arrive, I expected better from a successful brand. I will not be going back.

    Took daughters there before our day at American Girl store. Worked out great for teenage son because of décor and museum. Made his day more pleasant when we had to go to the doll store. They also celebrated my daughters birthdays which made it cool the way they did it. Will be back.

    Had group of 8 wanting to watch specific game and have dinner. Seated us under 4 TV's and were slow to react to our needs. Waiter was nice but not very good. Long time in between drinks, multiple mistakes, slow to follow up on special requests (kids, etc). Like the concept of place but location in mall was challenge for some in group.

    I chose to bring my parents here who were visiting for the weekend, as they had a reservation available last minute for the time we wanted. over all i would have no complaints, other than the waiter. he was nice, but seemed that he had way too many tables that he could handle, and did not even bring us waters until we asked for them. if the service would have been better, i would have given 5 stars.

    Our first time in Chicago, my husband wanted to eat at a Harry Caray's. We picked this one. We were seated quickly, service was great, the food was fantastic (veggie sandwich on ciabatta, turkey burger, sweet potato fries, veggie medley, all yummy!), ambience quiet and decked out with sports memorabilia. Overall a great experience, would do it again in a heartbeat. Although we had a window table, the view was not much, but we weren't there for the view, so no stars off.

    We had not been to Harry Caray's 7th Inning Stretch in Water Tower Place before. W were there this time on a Sunday at 11:00 AM, when traffic was very light. We were very pleased how great our server, Billy, was with our granddaughters, ages 7 and 9. He made the whole meal a lot more fun in a place that I assumed would pretty much cater to adults. Food was very good, and the view from the 7th floor was excellent as well - at least it would be, on a day when the could deck wasn't at 500 feet! I would guess that it gets very busy in the evenings and on weekdays for lunch. A plus is the Chicago Sports Museum, which is located next to the restaurant, and all the photos of celebrities who have dined at one of the Harry Caray's restaurants.

    I went with my Grandma and we made reservations because I heard online that sometimes you need one during thew lunch rush. We got there at 11:30, as soon as it opened, so we really didn't need a reservation. Good food. Great waiter, I believe his name was Stephen, very helpful. Nice touch with the Harry Caray pick in the burger. I am looking forward to coming again next year. Also, I was surprised when the elevator played Take Me Out to the Ball Game. Before going, Grandma and I thought that wouldn't happen because, no offense, but Harry's voice isn't exactly Frank Sinatra or Bing Crosby. Very pleased overall. Museum admission free was good too, so much memorabelia everywhere.

    We made this reservation as it was close to our hotel. The restaurant was fun and had lots of great and interesting things for the boys to look at. Menu was extensive with lots of great items. The steak I had was relatively inexpensive and very tasty. The waiter was wonderful. He chatted with the table and explained food items and made suggestions. Overall a great experience for dining.

    We took our son for his 15th birthday. Food and service were wonderful. My only question is why do you ask for a guest's special needs if they are ignored by the restaurant? When making our reservation, we stated that we were celebrating our son's 15th birthday. While dining, several special events were acknowledged by staff -- mostly birthdays. Because we had let the restaurant know when we made the reservation about our celebration, my husband and I waited so that our son's birthday would be acknowledged -- nothing. All in all we had a great time, we were just disappointed for our son. Don't ask for special requests if they're going to be ignored.

    We had the Italian Short Rib sandwich. Delicious!!! Very tender beef. Served open faced and you must eat it with a knife and fork. Portions on many items are large enough to share. Service was excellent- friendly and professional. We went to the Sport Museum as well. It was very interactive and definitely fun for the entire family. I highly recommend the museum as well.

    Server was nice but she forgot the chicken on the nachos, salad dressing, and at the end left the itemized tab. Maybe she was new? Anyhow nachos were ok and pizza not so good. I would say the burgers may be the best best here. Complimentary Museum access is a plus otherwise again I'll have to say Portillos is a cheaper option.

    We kept adding people to our group, and the staff was excellent with all of our changes. The staff did an outstanding job of serving us, letting us know if the food was going to be a little longer being served, checking to see how we were doing, and making sure our experience was a pleasant one. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a group, as they were not phased in the least when we asked for separate checks at the beginning of our meal. They did a super job of hosting us. Food was good. Service was outstanding. Thanks to all who made our evening a very pleasant experience.

    The waitress talked way to much. I don't want to hear a story. I just want to look at the menu. She was snippy too. My husband asked her if she knew where the washroom was. She said of course I do, I work her. Really snotty. I ordered a burger. I forgot to ask the waitress to cut the burger in half when I placed the order. When she brought it to the table I asked if she could ask the chef to cut the burger. She said the chef does not cut the burgers. I said even if a customer requested it? UNREAL! I am a paying customer. It would be nice to get better service.

    I made reservations and was phoned three times - twice to confirm and another time to ask why I didn't keep the reservation -- they had me down for 12:30 and the reservation was confirmed (twice) for 1:30 ! Then I asked for a nice table with a view of the city and we were shoved in the back of the restaurant - as far away from the view as you could possibly get. I saw people without reservations being escorted past us to the windows like we didn't exist. The sports museum was ok - half the interactive exhibits were being serviced and we stayed 20 minutes. However, the food was good - turkey burger was excellent and the truffle fries are great!

    Disappointing. You have to get through 7 floors of the mall to find average bar food and kitsch. Lots of TVs, though, if all you want is to have a beer, escape shopping and catch the top of the inning. We were expecting a higher level of restaurant.

    I wanted the experience to be so much better than it was for me and my kids, ages 10 and 8. After waiting 15 minutes, I had to tell the hostess that no one had even acknowledged our table. They weren't busy...only 4-5 other occupied tables. And while the server was good-natured and friendly to my kids, I felt it was a bit overbearing. The food was mediocre and overpriced. And to make matters worse, the "validated" parking only took $10 off a $22 parking bill. I should have known better based on the restaurant's location and the fact that this is the 6th or 7th Harry Caray restaurant. The name will get people in the door but unless the service and food improves, there may not be much repeat business. Stick with the original.

    husband & I enjoyed an early dinner over the July 4th weekend..the food was well prepared, tasty, and met the specifications of no butter (use of olive oil)..our waiter provided excellent service..we felt that the prices were satisfactory, considering the ambience and quality of food..we were happy to be seated in a booth..we prefer romaine or butter lettuce over mixed greens but the tomatoes were fine in the salad..if possible, we would like to see cod, halibut, or sea bass offered in the future..or a turkey burger on whole wheat..we visited the Sports Museum, which was quite enjoyable..there were a few interactives that were not working..perhaps these should be checked more frequently and maintained better..the free admission was a perk

    It was a wonderful place to watch the last USA game of the World Cup and service was EXTREMELY GOOD but the food needs an upgrade. The meat ball pizza should be replaced by a good Chicago pizza, add espresso, add a few more non-greasy aps & dishes, and this could a perfect place.

    Took my mother there for lunch on a Friday so it wasn't so crowded. She is hard of hearing and uses a wheelchair. This is a large restaurant so wheelchair was not a problem. Our server was very nice. Naturally, it is more for the sports minded person. Great view of the buildings close by. We ate shrimp poor boys with fried pickles. Yum! Looks like it would be great for large and small parties. At the end we took our pictures with the statue of Harry Caray.

    Food was mediocre. Typical bar food taste I can get for half the price somewhere else. We ordered the hotdog special that day and for the hotdog and fries it was $13. The salad was greasy and hard to chew. Food took a long time to come out, considering we only ordered salad and hotdog. The place was new and lots of TV. Our waiter was nice though, kept reassuring us that food is coming. Disappointed. Menu looked good but execution is blah...

    Convenient location but loud, and too warm inside dining area. Wait person kept bringing seltzer water instead of Sprite (the soda syrup bag needed changing but she couldn't comprehend this even though we told her what the issue was) and took a bit too long while for the food to come out. The food tasted good once we got it though. Bathrooms were for one person only and could have been much nicer.
