    Our server, Leslie, never told us that chicken vesuvio would take longer. It would have been helpful because after about 30 minutes we went to ask. Food was good (filet sliders) but very expensive. Could not even substitute soup or vegetable for fries or salad. Would have appreciated being checked on during meal so we could have ordered coffee sooner. It seemed like $16.95 was price of most items on the menu. A few lesser price sandwiches other than hamburger would have been appreciated. I did check with hostess when arriving, but found they didn't have record for open table. It finally got straightened out by e mails.

    I like a good steak and don't mind paying for it. But this was way overpriced for what we got. I had a filet that was just ok. The horseradish crust and the side we got didn't really have much taste. More sour cream than horseradish. My friend's tuna she said was awful. Prime rib was also just ok. Very disappointing all around. Add a couple high priced sides and a couple drinks and we were over $330 for a party of 4 and none of us enjoyed it very much. We won't be back.

    We went to Harry Caray's as a celebration of what would've been my parent's anniversary (but my mom passed away this year). The restaurant was very understanding of our situation and provided us with top notch service, good food and helped turn the night into a celebration rather than one of melancholy. The other thing I have to add is that the servers and hostess did a terrific job of making my five year old son feel welcome and special. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone that enjoys a good steak, nice drinks and a fun atmosphere.

    Made reservation for lunch expecting to sit in a dining room, but instead seating was in the bar. Service was very slow, despite there being only a few guests dining in the restaurant. Lunch took over an hour with our party having only salads. The food was good, but not much else to be happy about.

    I've been to the Chicago down town Herry Carrays and it is a million times better.I was expecting the same service and food quality but I was greatly disappointed. I wanted to make a dinner reservation for 5 people at 7:30 but opentable showed only a 7 or 8pm available table when we got there at 7 the restaurant was 90% empty. I asked our server a few of questions about the wine list and our server could not provide any background on their wine list. Here is the worst thing, the server came out with a tray-display for their stakes and all the stakes were rapped in plastic. I have never seen anything like this. We were supposed to appreciate their stake cuts, $50 dollar stakes, rapped in plastic!

    My husband was at a rail convention at the Westin and we had eaten at Harry Cary's in the city and really liked it. Our experience in Lombard was very good. I tried a skinny cocktail with mango and coconut juice. My husband had a signature drink there, the cosmopolitan. The pistachio topped salmon was cooked very well and the sliced, browned potatoes and sweetened carrots with it were very good. My husband had the chicken parmigiana which was very tasty. We split a beet salad before the dinner. Nice combination of flavors-spinach, roasted beets, goat cheese and nuts with a champagne vinegar dressing. Very delicious. It was a nice evening and I'm sure we will return.

    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.
