    I was having dinner with my boss's boss who was in from the UK along with 2 other colleagues who are originally from the UK as well but have lived in US for a bit. None had been to Harry's so since I got to choose, it was a great opportunity to show off a Chicago gem. I recommended the chicken vesuvio as it is one of the 2 best in the city along with Rosebud's. One gent from Scotland took me up on it and loved it. THe other two went for a rib eye and italian/pasta with sausage dishes. All were well within Harry's sweet spot and everyone was pleased. Nice work all !!!

    We enjoyed another great meal at Harry's. It must be our 4th or 5th visit, and was a special anniversary dinner with just the two of us.. The dry aged steak I had was the best steak in town.... My wife's filet was very good too. Mine was cooked perfectly, and surpassed my expectations that were based on my past visits. The sides were very generous portions, and I left stuffed as usual. Our only disappointment was that one of our favorite deserts was not on the menu - - perhaps it is seasonal. Love the sports memorabilia too. Almost makes me want to be a Blackhawk's fan.

    We were a party of 6 who arrived 35 minutes before our reservation and we were able to be seated within 5 minutes. The food was very good and we had a charming waiter who was very friendly to the kids. Celebrating our anniversary, they brought a delicious piece of Key Lime Pie for our dessert to share. Thanks!

    We had a reservation for 4. On our way to the restaurant we found 2 additional friends that wanted to join us. When we arrived, we asked the host if we could change the reservation to 6 and without hesitations she made the change. The foods, drinks, friends and atmosphere was great. Hope to see you there next time.

    Baseball memorabilia lined the walls and halls. The table spacing felt a little cramped. The restaurant seemed overly loud as well but that was probably, at least partly, because of the 2 dining groups sitting nearby. One of those was obviously a family. The service was excellent. The waiter had spot-on recommendations and the support staff was very attentive. We never had to ask for a refill of anything such as bread, water, beverages, etc.. Yes, I would recommend this restaurant to everyone except those seeking a quiet romantic evening. Suitable for birthday celebrations but not so much for marriage proposals.

    I took my girlfriend to Harry Caray's for our 1 year anniversary, and we were blown away by the service and the steak. I had the 16 oz New York strip and it was easily the best steak I've ever had. It's a bit pricey but in my opinion it was worth it. Great find!

    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.

    A co-worker and I had dinner here recently. Simply put - the food was awful. Both of us had pasta dishes and they were inedible. The waiter never came back once we received our food so we had zero chance to complain. By the time he showed back up, we told him the food was terrible and he said I am sorry and then returned with a check. We weren't rude or anything. He just didn't care. We paid and left. I WILL NEVER GO BACK HERE and I will make sure I tell anyone who asks about this restaurant that it is a waste of money.

    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

    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!)
