    My guests thought it would be some celeb place and expected little. I reminded them that Harry has been gone for years, yet the place thrives. Has to be the food. And, they agreed! Pasta dishes were praised highly. Their "famous" chicken vesuvio was more than memorable! Friendly staff with attentive service. Great chips in the bar. If they called it something else and took away the baseball decor, it would be considered as one of the best Italian steak houses in the city... (Which it already is!)... and not just thought of as a celeb restaurant. Harry Carey's NEVER disappoints.

    I took out-of-town relatives, major baseball fans, to dinner and we had a great meal. It is a little noisy, but we were able to enjoy a conversation. Steaks, prime rib and salmon were good choices for us. Service was attentive and respectful, we didn't feel rushed to leave. Would definitely go back.

    We like coming here a great deal. The food is consistently excellent. I've never had a meal here that I didn't really enjoy. The Duroc Pork Chop is incredible. The service is also consistently excellent. Our server was Steve Shepski, whom we have had before. He represents Harry Caray's extremely well. He is friendly, relaxed, efficient and makes you feel welcome. We have been coming here regularly for years, and we go to the Rosemont location occasionally as well. Truly one of our favorites.

    Ok, so my wife and I spent 5 days in Chicago as we do most every year. For steak we had Ditkas (very good), Flemings (very good and excellent service) and then Harry Carey's. Harry would be proud. The TASTE of this steak beat the others. I couldn't believe how flavorful it was. While the other 2 restaurants were great, the steak here was the best I've EVER had. And that is saying alot

    The steaks were great, so tender you can cut them like butter. The sides were huge, as my wife and I split a wedge salad and a twice baked potato. Service was great, Mario the waiter was there when we needed him, and was never a bother. Always a good experience

    If you want good food, good service, a great menu and wine list, and an atmosphere that energizes you and your party, you must dine at Harry Caray's Italian Restaurant in downtown Chicago. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who has the opportunity to visit this great city.

    The service was extremely good in the perso of "Tweed." My elderly uncle thought his steak was "too crusty" so Tweed took it back with a smile and brought one to the uncle's liking. The food itself was very good (steaks all the way around the table) and even the house wine was good (cab). The attendant in men's room was a laugh; he was enthusiastically singing Kenny Rogers tunes and making everyone smile. To sum it up, we had a memorable time and my uncle was simply glowing (of course, that was partly because we picked up the bill!)

    I have eaten here a few times over the years, and was very good, this time not so much. While my wife had a nicew chicken meal, I ordered the Pork chop. First was delivered and was not cooked all the way thru. Waiter ordered a second and that came out worse than the first. Will not order that again! Wait staff and mgnt. was very good, the chef cooking that day was not. I will go back in the future, I am a huge Harry Caray fan and go there for him. Just not ordering the Pork Chop!

    Met out of town family whom we hadn't seen in 10 years. Waiter checked in on us but did not rush us as we were so caught up in conversation. Calamari, ravioli and bruschetta were excellent appetizers. Filets and lamb chops were very good and would definitely order again. Best surprise was the taste and quality of the sides. We ordered brussel sprouts, asparagus, garlic mashed potatoes, and the baked cheddar bacon potato (they are served family style). Not always a fan of brussel sprouts but they were the first side gone. The asparagus was crunchy and nicely seasoned. Potatoes were great even the next night. We were not rushed and stayed an hour after the bill was paid. Wait staff continued to fill water glasses. Great night!

    We were in Chicago for the IMTS show, I brought customers here for dinner. Everything was great, we had a reservation and were seated promptly. Service was excellent and the waiter very knowledgeable. Great steaks and Pork chop served piping hot and seasoned to perfection. My customer stated it was one of the top 3 steaks he has ever had. Loved it and will return next time in town,
