The server overheard that it was my friend's birthday and he went out of his way to make sure her day was special.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe cod and crabmeat specialThe cod and crabmeat special was so-so. Being stuck in a back room as they were expecting 400 diners was not the best either. We went there the second weekend in a row, but we will pass on the third weekend.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been here severalWe have been here several times and it is by far become one of our favorite restaurants. During our most recent trip, our server at the Oakbrook location was Chris S. and he was both professional as well as had a superb attitude. I booked our reservations on Open Table and they seated us exactly as requested as well as it was a friends birthday and they even brought out a little chocolate cake with a candle in it,4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding restaurant. FoodOutstanding restaurant. Food and service always the best.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI have had the privilege ofI have had the privilege of eating at Ditka's restaurant in Oak Brook on a few occasions for both dinner and brunch. On all of the occasions that I have visited the restaurant, the food has been fantastic, and the service has always been above and beyond accomodating and cheerful. Ditka's is one of those restaurants that is on my list as a "go to" restaurant when thinking of where to go. One request, please don't think about taking the filet mignon sliders and the wedge salad off the menu. They are a great late night, you don't want to feel overly full, items to eat. Also, the friend who went with me absolutely loved the Parmesan Crusted Cod!!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWent to Ditka's to celebrateWent to Ditka's to celebrate mom's 70th birthday.

We'll definitely be back especially for more of those pot roast nachos and thd best pork chop ever!4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMOur experience was FANTASTIC!Our experience was FANTASTIC! It all started with the valet. Very courteous. And then inside: our waitress (Sara) was the absolute BEST. We eat out alot and I have to say, by far, she was OUTSTANDING. Very personable and very attentive and accommodating. Her suggestions were right on and the food was superb -- and there was plenty of it. This was a birthday celebration for our youngest sister who has special needs and Sara was tuned into it from the get-go. All-in-all a memorable experience for all of us. We'll definitely dine at Ditka's Oak Brook Terrace again.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was great, I hadEverything was great, I had the salmon and my wife had"Da Chop" both excellent !

We have always loved Ditkas location in Oak Brook but we never are bothered by spending time in the city or suburbs near or far to get a steak at one of the other fine steak houses we are blessed with in this area. But let me tell you, Saturday night DITKAS NAILED IT !! As always great service but the bone-in rib eye was fabulous. The best steak I have had "by far".......

I really like how the tables are not on top of each other - lots of space so you are not bumping into anyone behind you.
The roast beef nachos were yet again fabulous. Gone in seconds. Everyone enjoyed their dinner. Our 14 year old enjoyed his filet & loaded baked potato while watching the Blackhawks game on his birthday - can't get any better than that. For dessert our daughter had ordered this Oreo nut caramel thing and it was HUGE and delicious...she was in heaven b/c she loves desserts.
The only negative was the temperature. It was drafty.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best steaks I haveOne of the best steaks I have ever enjoyed , food and service was very very good.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMJust a fantastic Easter Brunch.Just a fantastic Easter Brunch.

Maybe just bad timing.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe dining experience wasThe dining experience was very good. The food was delicious and the servings were very satisfying.
