Diner Reviews
  • "From the moment our group walked in the door we were greeted by a friendly wait staff. Our Server was phenomenal in his ability to recommend craft beers for the group along with menu selections. He seemed more than adept in handling any question we may have had without hesitation. During our entire stay the staff was very attentive to our needs, and removed plates promptly/quietly making for a very comfortable environment."

  • "My husband and I went here for dinner recently; neither of us had been, and it's sort of a neighborhood landmark. The room was busy and the waitstaff certainly wasn't overly solicitous, which was actually kind of nice. (Except that we overheard our waitress discussing specials and steak selections with the table behind us, but never mentioned any of the same to us... A little odd.). We had a very "standard" meal - bottle of wine, shrimp, steaks, salad, and a potato, and the with food was fine. Nothing amazing, just ... solid fare. The memorabilia makes the place - it was a hoot to check out the photographs on the wall and all the uniforms, etc. Overall, we're glad we went once."

  • "I was so impressed by Harry Caray's Italian Steakhouse! The bread they give you for the table is some of the best bread I've ever had! I got the Lobster ravioli (The special of the day) and it was hands down one of the best meals I've ever had. The flavor combinations were amazing. The only downside was that our server wasn't very friendly and didn't come check on us very often, but from seeing the other servers it seems like they were all great and it was just ours that was having an off night."

  • "I've been to Harry Caray's a half dozen times and it never disappoints. How can you resist those chips. The wine list is deep and they always have some affordable bottles to order. I've had everything from steak, seafood and pasta and they always are delicious. I had the chicken and pasta special this time and it was so good!"

  • "We where an hour late for our reservation because of travel delays. Not too many people remained in the resteraunt, but it didn't matter...they treated out great. Didn't rush us, great service and oh, the meal was incredible!!! The overall experience will be something our family will talk about for years to come!"

  • "On a Chicago Sports trip we stopped by for lunch and had a great time. The Valet parking was very convienent, the ambiance was fun and as a sports nuts who grew up listening to Harry Caray it was a perfect way to prepare for a night at Wrigley Field! The food was great, service was fast and good!"

  • "My wife and I arrived at 4:50 for our 45th anniversary Dinner. We were seated at 5 at a table. 4 minutes later the hostess brought 4 people and seated them behind us. I had to push my chair in to allow room for the guests behind me. If the hostess had been properly trained, she would have seated them at another table in the empty dining room. Salads were great, by wife had a great chicken dinner which she loved, my prime rib was only a 2 out of 10, chewy and tough. Brownie dessert was wonderful. We were very disappointed. The next time we will go to Sullivans or our favorite, Ruth Chris."

  • "Four of us spent an enjoyable evening at Harry's, great service, very good food and a friendly atmosphere. The women had their favorite, chicken vescuvio, the men had a small filet and a prime rib, all extremely well prepared and satisfying. Harry's in River North is consistently good and whenever we have out of town guests we take them there because we know they will be impressed."

  • "Our table was ready when we arrived. Lupe was our server, and he offered excellent main course suggestions, wine pairings, meat choices, and even recommended we visit the little museum in the basement. Lupe brought out a huge tray of meat and explained the difference between dry aging and wet aging and the value of marbling for our 12-year-old before she ordered her steak. A fun evening for all!"

  • "On our last night in town we were craving steak. We split a 55-day dry-aged bone-in ribeye and it did not disappoint. There was some gristle, but ribeye is supposed to have some gristle. Just cut if off and enjoy that beefy, juicy steak with a perfectly seasoned and caramelized crust. No "special" crusts needed, unless you want to spend more $. Our only other side was a dish of sauteed spinach--delicious, not overly oily or salty. We didn't eat much of the bread (we're both eating low-carb nowadays) but it was warm and dense, more similar to Italian farm bread than a French baguette. Too full for dessert so can't comment on it. Our service was appropriately attentive without being intrusive. My only complaint? It's too dark in there."

  • "I cook a lot at home. Grill out all the time. I ordered the 9 Oz Fillet, $36 for the Fillet. Better be good for that price. Steak was ordered mid rare and came to me Mid Well. Sent it back. Fifteen min. later my second steak arrives, cooked mid rare, Cold on the outside too and no flavor at all. How do you grill a Bland steak!? If the steak is good, a little salt and pepper, at most, is all it needs before hitting the grill. If the service is bad, good food helps to gloss over the lack of attention. There weren't 20 people in this place, and our service was a cold as my steak.. Buy your own steak, stay at home and fire up the grill."

  • "We took our 80 year old mother to this restaurant as a special treat on our trip to Chicago. She is a big Cubbie fan and has been one since 1977. When we moved to Florida we couldn't get our NY baseball teams on TV, we mainly got the Braves and the Cubs. My mom liked the Cubs because of the full stadium and listening to Harry Caray. My mom is also Italian so we had to make a stop here. She found the food to be terrific. We had an 8 oz steak, creamed spinach, a Harry Caray Holy Cow burger, cream brûlée, brownie in a skillet and cocktails. We can only rave about all of the food and our Waitress Wendy was just as wonderful as well as all the other servers. We would highly recommend this restaurant for special occasions and regular dining."

  • "We wanted to watch the baseball game and where better than the bar at Harry Caray's? The food was way above bar food and the service was outstanding. We enjoyed the bar scene, which was loud, but not too loud for talking. We had the calamari and the chopped antipasto and wine. Will always come here when in Chicago"

  • "Carlos made our visit very special. The prime rib could not have been any more tender and tasty. And my wife proclaimed the salmon the best she'd ever eaten, and she loves salmon. The glaze on the salmon is perfect."

  • "Took the girlfriend here for her birthday, right after a Cubs game. Food was delicious. We both had the chicken vesuvio. Waiter seemed kind, & the hostess was able to switch my reservations from 8:00 to 5:30 without a problem; the game ended sooner than I thought, so the switch worked out perfectly. Overall, I was pleased with my visit & would certainly return."

  • "We have eaten here one other time in the bar and had a great time. This time we decided to eat in the dining room - - the host was rude, the service was poor and the steaks were dry. We are big Harry Carey fans but we will avoid the dining room next time"

  • "We dined as a party of 6 on a Friday night. We were there about 15 minutes early, and were promptly seated. Our server, Eric was excellent. The restaurant was quite busy, as I would expect for a popular spot on a Saturday evening. The seating was a bit cramped, I would have preferred a bit more room. Appetizers were excellent. Was disappointed that they were already out of the prime rib, which was my first choice. So, if you want prime rib, I suggest you get an earlier reservation. The wet aged bone-in ribeye did not disappoint, and was cooked perfectly. The skillet chocolate fudge sundae was killer. One of my favorite spots in Chicago and would go back. Expensive, but worth it. Every penny."

  • "I went through many reviews before choosing Harry Caray's to have a nice dinner with my boyfriend. I have to say I wasn't really impressed with the food. I asked for filet to be done medium well and there was still blood coming out when she brought it to me. I felt bad asking for it to be cooked more so I ate it...well I ate the outside that was actually not red. My boyfriend enjoyed his steak and shrimp but for the price I have had way better steak! The mac and cheese was good and the brownie skillet was awesome but I wouldn't eat here again by choice."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Our meal at Harry Caray's was prepared as requested and was very good. Our only mild complaint is that the service at Harry Caray's seems to be too quick. The main course arrived (as it had on previous occasions) before we had finished our salads. We had hoped to enjoy a relaxing dinner after a long day of sightseeing, but we ended feeling rushed."

  • "Restaurant was busy, wait staff was friendly, clean, dress code? There was no dress code. We saw people in jackets but we also saw adult men wearing basketball style shorts and t-shirts. No need to dress up or even put on jeans. Extremely casual for the prices they get away with. This was very disappointing. I had the dry aged ribeye. Great steak but way way over priced. My wife had the chicken Vesuvio and we both agreed that the dish is horrible. No flavor, just chicken breast, canned peas, and sliced roasted potatoes. I could make it at home. Overall, my wife enjoyed looking at the celebrity pictures (saw the same pictures 3 times on different walls), but don't plan on revisiting."

  • "We had a super dinner! We had the bison and the grass fed strip. We LOVEDthe tuna crudo appetizer. Our server was a bit distracted that night. He said he's worked there too long. Waiting on very needy people does get old fast, and the table next to us was VERY needy. We actually felt bad for him."

  • "I come here often with clients and love it. They have everything from salads to steaks and the food is always good. They also never have an issue with special orders (different noodles for my chicken parmigan so I don't spill everywhere, adding shrimp instead of chicken...). Highly recommend1"

  • "Had a large group that had been to meetings and the ball game. They have a varied menu so everyone found something and loved it. The memorabilia was great for first timers to Chicago and we had a great meal. The wait staff is worth going for - they enjoy their jobs and it shows."
