Harry Caray's Italian Steakhouse - Chicago
Still Going StrongI hadn't been to Harry Caray's in years as my office had moved from the neighborhood, but decided to take out of town guests to a typical tourist venue. I had forgotten how good the food is! Everything we had was outstanding, and Eric, our waiter, was great. My steak was every bit as good as any you can get here in Chicago, period. It won't be years before we return again!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat eveningHad a better experience than expected to celebrate my sons 35th birthday.

Many Thanks....6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGood dinner....I wasn't sure what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised. Great service, food was excellent. Loved my chicken Vesuvio. Would try a steak next time.....or pasta?...... Toasted ravioli appetizer was good and football shaped loaf of bread had great texture. Fun to check out the photos of Harry all over the walls.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat!Best steak I've ever had. Waiter was wonderful! We already have reservations made for the end of the week.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMMade a Special Occasion PerfectWent to celebrate a university graduation and had a ball. The service was attentive without being intrusive. The food - outstanding. Don't look for the newest food craze here - experience great steaks prepared incredibly well. I don't want to short-change their other food, it is great too. But this is a steakhouse. We had their New Yorks and Rib-eyes. Simply perfect.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful steaks especiallyWonderful steaks especially with truffle butter, great bread and Italian must haves.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't miss this gem!Food was fantastic, service was outstanding. All-in-all one of the better steakhouses in downtown Chicago.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Food, Great ServiceI took two colleagues for a quick dinner on a Monday night. The restaurant was busy but not crowded and the service was great. The food was very good (although the creamed spinach was not as creamed as I prefer ;-)
Absolutely would go back!6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMChicago's Finest - Meet HarryThis place is incredible. Not only is every dish singularly excellent, but the staff is among the best I have seen. Formal if required, informative as always, and goes to the nth degree to insure a great dining experience. Be prepared to drop $100 per person if you have wine with dinner - but you will not regret a penny and you WILL remember every bite. Try the Tomahawk Ribeye - Fred Flintstone would be proud - shareable for two people for $65 and a great steak. Of course the NY Strip is also incredible and I was afraid of the 18 oz bone-in ribeye as a solo plate - but all worth the time and effort. Ask for Carlos - he'll take good care of you!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was fantastic, serviceFood was fantastic, service was great and quick and I loved the atmosphere.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMCome for the steak, stay for desserCelebrated husband's b'day at Harry Caray's Italian Steakhouse - very good steaks (though my med-rare came very rare; still, they fixed it to perfection), great cabernet reduction. Shared the key lime pie - best I have ever had, even trumped some from the Florida Keys. Love the ambiance - it's so Chicago.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat business lunchThis is the perfect place for a business lunch. Prompt and pleasant service and delicious food. The tables are roomy if you need to take notes.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful ExperienceGreat food, great service, great evening! Will return!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat can I say?It's Harry Caray's!! The steak....that's all I have to say...5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food!Loved the steak and their salads were great as well. Although I didn't taste the burgers I did see a few and they looked amazing.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMMany ReturnsHarry Caray's is a Chicago mainstay. I get to Chicago a couple times a year and its always a part of my plans. The food is great, my favorite is the Bone In Rib Eye!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOut with FriendsWe always go to Harry’s when we are in town on business but on this trip I was fortunate to have my daughter along. She had just graduated from Temple University in Philadelphia a few days before coming to help me at the trade show that was in town. This was her first time here and she is a huge baseball, Phillies, fan and enjoyed looking at all the pictures and trivia of the sports teams in Chicago.
The food and service was outstanding as always and the attention given to us by our server was warm and friendly. We had no room for desert but the meal was great and I am very glad I had a chance to share this restaurant with my daughter. It will be a great memory for years to come.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways have good meal andAlways have good meal and great place if you are in from out of town5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMDinnerMy wife and I had a wonderful dinner, where the atmosphere was energetic and the staff were friendly and spot on with their timeliness.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and great service!The 14 ounce veal was wonderful. The service staff was a great help and they all had a smile on their face. The sports memorabilia was fun to look at and the Cubs catcher was eating two tables away. Taking a picture with Harry was great too!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Chicago RestaurantAt first I was a little apprehensive about going to Harry Caray's since I know it is a haven for tourists. We seem to lately be gravitating toward the newer and trendier restaurants that seem to be popping up everywhere in Chicago. Our evening, however, could not have been better!! Our group was large (nine people) and we were able to easily carry on conversations without shouting. In addition, the food was outstanding!! No one in our group had anything but rave reviews about the food ordered. The most impressive facet of our experience, however, was the outstanding service we received. Our server was not only competent and skillful, but he was personable, engaging, and entertaining. We really enjoyed our night at Harry Caray's!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Dining ExperienceWent here with a group of five for dinner on a Saturday night and was highly impressed. The service was terrific and food was delicious and perfectly prepared. Our waiter, Tweed, was knowledgeable about all items on the menu and a really friendly and attentive waiter. All around great experience. Would definitely recommend and also come back myself!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBest steak in Chicago!Every time we are in town this is the place for steak and great service. Our waiter Steve was the best as always!!!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomeThey could have made this just another celebrity restaurant with passable food and some memorabilia on the walls. Instead, Harry Caray's is one of the best steakhouses around and a Chicago landmark. Check out the bar that's 60' 6'' long (just like from the pitcher's mound to home plate) and the remains of the Bartman ball, then get ready for great food. The steaks are awesome, just be sure to ask to see the meat tray. You'll learn something! The service goes the extra mile as well. Portions are huge on the sides, so ask about half portions if you're not in a group. It's a very nice place for a dinner without being too formal.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food and service.Very good food and service. Casual, fun environment. Not stuffy as some other steak houses I've visited. Price on par with other steak houses in the area. Seems to be a favorite with the locals--which is a good thing.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMHoly Cow it was greatMy wife and I chose Harry Caray's for our big 'night out' while on our recent Chicago visit. It was an excellent choice and did not disappoint. The steaks were excellent and overall the meal was great. I have to say I have never seen a wait staff so energetic, professional and on the ball. From my vantage point I could see the flurry of non-stop activity, waiters helping each other, seemingly anticipating each other's next move. It was quite a sight.
Overall, this was a great choice and we were well pleased with our choice. Next time I won't order quite so large a steak though. I could barely finish it!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst ime in ChicagoThis was my first visit to downtown Chicago and Harry Caray's was my choice for dinner and I was not disappointed. The old building was so great. The food was wonderful. I will be dining here each time I visit the City.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I were firstMy husband and I were first timers in Chicago and feel like we hit the jackpot with Harry Caray's. We had a fabulous time. The steaks were great..as we're the crab cakes and sides. The service was perfect too. We will be back next time in Chicago, Loved it!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI had a delicious steak, goodI had a delicious steak, good Caesar and garlic mashed. Only disappointment was being sat way in the back of a room that was 1/4 full. (We were way overdressed so it wasn't that). Nice waiter who gave hubby a free beer. Don't know why, but hey, a free beer! Would happily return for a more casual occasion and enjoy the comfortable atmosphere. A bit pricey but a good splurge.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFour of us wanted a closeFour of us wanted a close restaurant and we decided on Harry Caray's. No second guessing, the service and food was outstanding. Try it! You won't be sorry4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner at Harry Carey's wasDinner at Harry Carey's was a highlight of our trip to Chicago. The restaurant is housed in a wonderfully maintained old building, filled with sport (mostly baseball) memorabilia. The steaks were excellent, the desserts are all made in-house, the martinis sublime.

Best steak in Chicago, and if he is working as for Steve's section. He is the best.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot nice staffHad a nice time 6 guests were at our table. The food was very good but it was slightly pricey. I had the tuna it was great but 2 fairly thick slices for $37 seemed a bit much. Our server was great but he was a bit of a salesman, which was not needed. We all had fun and would recommend to friends. The calamari appetizer was the best we had ever had so tender.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Steak - Great NightI had the 9oz filet - easily one of the best steaks I've ever had. I'd also recommend the mushrooms. The terimasu and espresso are also a must.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
