Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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 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."

  • "A group from Toronto came in to see the City of Chicago and catch a ball game. We were all impressed with the food as much as your beautiful city. Our Waiter Carlos was a gem. He couldn't do enough for us. The steak(s) a must-have at Harry Caray's Italian Steakhouse."

  • "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."

  • "Service started out great but ended poorly. We suspect we didn't order enough to be worthy of continued great service. Steak was great. We were just visiting for a long weekend and will try something else next time!"

  • "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."

  • "I was expecting to have a great meal as I had eaten their on a business trip in the past. However this time I was with my wife and we were celebrating our 29th anniversary with an impromptu trip to Chicago for the weekend. I had commented on the Open Table form when making the reservation about celebrating our anniversary. It was very nice that from the moment we walked in everyone we came into contact with wished us a happy anniversary. Now for the food....the wedge salad was as good as I have ever had, very fresh, well proportioned and delicious. The bread was nothing special, nor was the butter but it was good. As for the steak we each had the 12 oz dry aged which was outstanding, perfectly prepared and seasoned. Pricey, but excellent."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We had been awake for 20 hours and we needed some comfort food and good drink. The food was mostly very good but I had a dry aged Rib Eye that did not live up to the hype it was good and should have been great. Everything else Pasta burgers and appetizers were all great. We will I go back."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "A steady place to eat a steak. Expensive like all of the Chicago Steakhouses, but not over the top. Good tasting ribeye. Wine list is solid, but out of date if you know your wine. Service is ok, but for the amount of the tip off the bill, would expect more."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "This is by far thebest steak I have ever had and I have had enough to compare. The char was perfect on the outside and the cooking temperature was perfect on the inside for both my husband and I. The sides were perfect for sharing which made the dining more sociable. The wine and drinks menu was impressive as well as the bread and butter. That is how good the food was. I am reviewing the bread and butter. Definitely recommend anyone to eat here."

  • "The food was very good. We had lamb, fish, and filet mignon at our table and all were great. Service was very good too. The wine was good and reasonable. The only slight complaint is very tight table placement and noisy setting for a table of four."
