  • "Bathrooms -- both men and women, were filthy Limited menu Food very so-so Music Loud"
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "This restaurant may carry the Harry Caray name but has nothing in common with the other locations. It is a touristy catchall restaurant on Navy Pier. We were seated outdoors which was our request. However, the table was evidently right next to the garbage bins behind the fence. Throw in the smell of dish room which was evidently being vented right over our table and you have quite a treat! We were relocated with apologies but why have that situation in the first place? Also, like most of Navy Pier the restaurant was grubby around the edges. If you're looking for good food stay off the pier."

  • "More of a lunch/burger spot than a spot to celebrate with a decent dinner. My wife and I received two different menu's (one of which was outdated) and had a difficult time choosing what we wanted. Has a 90 minute seating restriction. "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Worst dinning experience. Had to practically beg for water refills. Kids food came out 15mins after adults. "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "We sat in one of the big leather booths, which was really nice. Ravioli appetizer was really good, and the burgers were good too. Unfortunately the service was a bit 'off', we kept asking for water and it took forever. Also the waitress was distracted and heard our beer order wrong and then dashed off before we could correct her. There are some interesting items in the museum."
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "this is a family restaurant and felt nothing was really prepared on site. I was hoping I would have been able to get at least one of their signature steaks they are known for but ended up with previously frozen fish and chips. my martini was served warm. my fault for not sticking with the original."
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "The calamari appetizer was great! The burger was fantastic! The Margarita was good, could have had a little more alcohol."

  • "I came with a group of 13 kids. Our servers were great, and our food came quickly and accurately."
    Dined on 5/8/2014
  • "I took a group of kids from small-town Iowa to Harry Caray's. They loved all the sports memorabilia. The service was great. Our order came out promptly, which was really nice for 13 hungry teenagers!"
    Dined on 5/8/2014
  • "The only positive thing I can say about this experience is that it was convenient to Shakespeare theater. The waiter was surly. When I asked him about light beers he took the menu & turned to the lengthy list & pointed. Thanks very much I could do that myself! Everything about his attitude was negative. The food is only fair. The ability to get an order right spotty at best. only 4 out of 6 for our group. If you don't need to be in Navy Pier don't go!!"
    Dined on 5/8/2014
  • "Always good food, well priced and has varied menu choices. Reservations a MUST! Service always excellent, great staff and very fast. Since dining here before theatre, choice never wrong."
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "As their menu states, "If you are looking for a great steak you are at the wrong Harry Carry location!".Very true. But, the casual sandwich/burger menu offers a decent variety of high quality items. FYI the burger we ordered was excellent & the beef sandwich was very good (but no match for Portillo's). Service was friendly and efficient, quickly bringing added condiments we requested and addressing a side-dish mistake. All-in-all a nice experience. The only oddity was that the rear dining room (nearer the water) was extremely humid and unpleasantly warm, even though it was a cold, "early May" day and all windows & patio doors were closed. However, our seating change request was quickly handled and the main dining room was comfortable. "

  • "Went here for the first time. Burgers were good, service was fine, noise was loud. Looking in the sports memorabilia was fun"

  • "I reserved this restaurant for our family while visiting the Navy Pier in April. We were seated right away but the waiter didn't come take our drink order for close to a half an hour after we were seated and then it took another 10-15 minutes for him to bring back our soda and water. The waiter was unfriendly and absent during most of our dinner. The food was mediocre and overpriced. If you get one of the tables located between the rows of booths the guests in the booths are seated facing toward you during your whole meal which can be awkward. We were very disappointed and would not recommend Harry Carey's Tavern there are much better options on the Navy Pier."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Harry Caray's has a simple menu along with appetizers and beer selection. Nothing too spectacular, however I found the calamari and fish n chips large enough to share with table. Many screens to watch Chicago sports as well as reminisce on all the memorabilia."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "There were plenty of things to look at, I especially liked the old sports pages on the wall."
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "I have been to the Harry Carry's in Oakbrook and it truly does not compare. The place has a minimal menu and the staff is extremely busy ...this is one of the few restaurants that are not in the food court and it is always packed. Prepare to wait for a table and prepare to wait for your food. I had the Margherita pizza and I was not by any means impressed. It lacked flavor and was just bland. The waiter even made a comment about how "Giordano's is better." I don't really recommend this place unless you just have time to kill waiting for the Imax and want to grab a burger and fries and a beer. It's also nice to sit outside."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • ". . . . limited than what is listed on website. Our appetizer order was lost, came much later. Entrees (salad and burgers) were as tasty as expected. Drink refills were prompt. Out of towners might enjoy, we just wanted a decent bite to eat while on the Pier."

  • "Chris was great, food was okay. Service and change to earlier time was very good."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "i thought the food was greasy and way over priced for what you received. Also there was a sense of being rushed and service was poor."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "Decent bar/beer, average food, good service, tourist friendly but more hype than substance."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "When we first sat down, I looked at the menu and asked, "Where are the steaks?" But this version of Haray Caray is a pub, with its own virtues. We split an order of Bang Bang shrimp poppers, then both had an Italian beef sandwich, very like a French Dip but with the meat spiced Italian style . Very tasty. Wines are OK. We will return."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "We often dine at Harry Caray's Tavern before attending Chicago Shakespeare Theater. The food is always very good and the service excellent. This time we had fish and chips and a BBQ chicken sandwich, both of which were very good and service as usual was quick and attentive."
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "Stopped in before going to the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Waitress was very attentive and food was served promptly. Never felt rushed or abandoned. Had a turkey burger that was delicious and rather filling. Great beer selection."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "Was hoping for a more in-depth menu -- we were going to the Chicago Shakespeare Theater and wanted more of a "dinner" not bar food (they did have two specials that were more in line with a dinner entree). We have been to other Harry Caray restaurants and were expecting more options then burgers, sandwiches and pizza. What we had was good; we split fried calamari, barbecue chicken pizza and the Santa Fe salad. The Chipotle Ranch dressing on the salad was disappointing -- not much flavor (like the "chipotle" was missing). Our waitress charged us for a beer we didn’t order. When brought to her attention she was rather nonchalant I would have expected her to be more apologetic."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Our waitstaff was very attentive even with handling a large party. He made our birthday celebration special by having the staff sing to my niece. Food was good too. One of my favorite places to celebrate with family."

  • "Just love the character of this place. Food and service are always top notch. I had the salmon and it was divine. Friends had burgers and raved. Drinks were yummy too ! Great dinner and kick off to a fun night."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "This is good, quick food. Sit down restaurant quality, but quick. With a nice bar and good bar tenders. It is the only other restaurant on the pier that is not a bar and serve liquor besides Riva, which is really good but really expensive. It is a good place for before or after the IMAX or a show at Shakes."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "way more casual than I was expecting. Limited menu nothing noteworthy, good burger, nice appetizers. Seemed to aimed at family type outing, lot's of stuff for children to choose from"

  • "My turkey burger was delicious. My bubbly was cold. The green beans were not to be missed. Good bet on Navy Pier."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "We usually dine here before attending Chicago Shakespeare Theater and always find the service very quick and the food good. It is a very reliable place to dine, although this time they were obviously short of some help, but even so service was good and there was no problem finishing in time to walk to the theater."
    Dined on 1/14/2014
  • "This restaurant is a great spot to eat at if you're in Chicago visiting Navy Pier. The restaurant had great food, with a variety of options to choose from, and friendly staff. The service was great and we didn't wait long for anything."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "I was disappointed in the menu. Seems like you could add a little more flavor/challenge. Its a nice location with plenty of seating and the menu is probably great for summer. Disappointing in the winter."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "When the hostess seated us, she informed us that the several open booths were closed for the evening even though it was only 6 PM. Shortly after we ordered, she sat another couple at one of the so-called closed booths. This was very annoying. Our server was great but the food was merely adequate."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "Great place for a quick bite before a show. The sports memorabilia & tv's are standard sports bar, but the leather booths and dark wood paneling kick it up a notch. A standard but limited menu doesn't change seasonally. On the plus side, you always know what is available."
    Dined on 1/8/2014
  • "great restaurant for a casual dinner out. Burger was great. For a busy night on Navy Pier we did not feel rushed and the service was great."
