    We were unable to get a reservation until 8 pm. When we arrived there was 1 couple and we were told that they had had plenty of space all evening. How much business did the restaurant lose due to wanting to dine earlier?

    The room is very dark and not so inviting, but we had a nice comfortable booth. We enjoyed our steaks and they took good care of us. Asparagus a tiny bit over cooked. Very tasty twice baked potato. We have dined at other Harry Caray's that give a better feeling, like in Rosemont. The steaks are delicious and the options of crusts and sauces make the meat choice delectable. For the price, I would probably go to a different steak house the next time. They need to make this a more appealing room. Dark can feel cozy with the right lighting and appointments.

    My wife and I love the place. We've taken friends here on several occasions because of the excellent food, service and fun atmosphere. Plus, they remember your name as a customer and that makes you feel special. They sometimes toss in a complimentary side dish to round off your dinner. The bar is awesome if you just want a beer, some sports TV and something to good to eat. You wouldn't think valet parking would be needed with a big parking lot in front, but the lot is often quite full because of hotel parties, etc. and the comp valet parking is a nice touch. My wife loves to check out the celeb pictures out front and everyone wants to rub the head of the Harry Caray bust in the lobby. Thumbs way up!

    We dine out quite a bit. We chose Harry Caray's based on a favorable experience at the downtown location. This was a huge disappointment. Celebrated a special occasion and expected far more for the money. There's several other restaurants on 22nd Street between Oak Brook and Lombard and any choice would have been a better overall value and experience than Harry Caray's. Nothing about the food, service, or ambiance lived up to our expectations . . . or the money spent on this less-than-mediocre dining experience.

    We met for a small group dinner. Service was very good, the food was even better. I had the salmon and people in the group also had steak. Both were excellent and prepared very well. They also had a gluten free menu so everyone in our party had a chance to have an assortment of food. The side dishes were served family style which made it easy to share. The atmosphere was friendly and the memorabilia was very interesting. Very well done.

    We sat in the dining room and it was a fantastic. The steaks are out of this world as well as the pork chop, which is my husbands favorite. Not the first time we've been there. Food is always great. If you eat in the bar the noise level is very high if it is crowded. Lot's of energy in there if that's what you like. The burgers are fantastic!

    Had a client dinner at Harry Caray's in Lombard. The food was delicious, but our server was not strong. He interrupted our conversation to show us the cuts of meat, he did not keep our wine glasses filled, and generally was not very attentive. The same was true of the busboy, who cleared plates before everyone was finished with the meal (a personal pet peeve of mine). Again, great food, but need to work on service.

    The restaurant is lovely. Its sports décor outstanding. Our waiter was very polite and timed our food perfectly. The food itself leads to the "good" review. It was good but, certainly not great. I had the sausage and peppers. Not top quality meat and a bit overcooked. My husband had the burger. Nothing special about that except the price. Oh well we have always wanted to try the place and now we have. We will not be returning customers.

    Went there on Father's Day, which was part of their steak week. We had a piece of prime and Wagyu beef. Both were deliciious and the portions were just the right size. We ordered a Caeser salad that they split up for us to share. Never had done that before but it was great, just the right amount for each of us. Would definitely go back there again

    We celebrated my husband's birthday with our family of seven. Three of them have never been to Harry Caray's and they loved it. The meal and service was great. We weren't rushed and were able to relax and enjoy ourselves. Our server, Anthony, was wonderful and fun. My husband really enjoyed his surprise dinner with the family and is still talking about how wonderful it was and it was the perfect place, since we had not been there in a while. Everyone enjoyed their drinks, appetizers and meals. We had a great time.

    We came to Harry Caray's to celebrate my husband's birthday and left very disappointed. Our expensive steaks were cooked incorrectly, the 3 side dishes we ordered came out 20 minutes after our main dishes had been served, and the food was overpriced for the quality. We won't be returning.

    It was our first visit. We had asked for a table in a quiet area online because we have a hearing impaired person in our group. Even with a reminder to the hostess when we arrived (@ 5:30, so not crowded) our request was ignored. By the end of the meal, it was so noisy we couldn't converse. Saul, our server, was GREAT Foodwise:! My prime rib was rare instead of med. rare. The sides were good, as was the key lime pie, and the portions were generous. We had hoped for a more formal experience as we had seen pics online of white tablecloths, etc. but it seemed to be casual attire and noisy. Since it is not inexpensive, our expectations were higher than our experience.

    We were a group of 7 women and had Anthony as our server. One of the best servers we have ever had. Did most of the work himself including keeping our water filled. Very funny and sincere. I would request him again. Calamari was the best we have ever eaten. My only disappointment was. The prime rib it was a little tuff but overall outstanding food and service,

    For the money it costs to dine here, the food should have been better! Prime rib was overcooked, pasta was plain boring and salad drenched in dressing. I've eaten at a lot of top steak places and this is not one of them! Waiter was attentive and helpful!

    All the people involved with the restaurant were wonderful. Our server was great. But unfortunately the food was simply OK. For the prices I would have expected much higher quality. For a Saturday night they were not terribly crowded and most of the people in the resturant seemed to be from the Westin Hotel next door. I was surprised to see the number of children there for that late in the evening on a Saturday. My husband had never been to Harry Caray's downtown so I was pretty disappointed except for the service.

    We went to dinner Saturday. There were 4 of us. Our server, Tim, was great. He explained the menu and specials. My son ordered the Ribeye. He wanted rare, very rare. I think they call it blue. His steak came out medium. We sent it back, and it came out rare just they way he likes it. The manager came and checked to make sure all was OK. They even gave his drinks, "on the house." Great dining experience. Will go back.

    Went to Harry Caray's for a date night/young child retreat and was pleasantly surprised that you could also sit and order from the Holy Mackerel menu as well. My wife and I both enjoyed the food and service was excellent. The only downfall was a table of 2 adults and 5 young kids who were noisy, but all in all it was not a terrible issue.

    Even though I'm a White Sox fan, I can still appreciate a fine restaurant like Harry Caray's. Food selection was more than I expected, had a very difficult time deciding what to order, which makes the case for going back all that much stronger. Can't wait to try some of the other entrees that caught my eye.

    Our options for reservations were either 5:30 and earlier, or 7:30 and later. We chose 5:30. The place was empty. Was it because of the storm earlier in the day? Glad we chose 5:30. We had a very knowledgeable server - Carrie? Food was very good, prices, and wasn't cheap.
