We had a family get together at Ditka's and the food and service was excellent. The manager who oversees the operation, Steve, is always friendly and makes a great Tom Collins. Will be back again soon!!!

Server was rude, there wasn't any gravy for the southern fried chicken, hardly anyone was there (possibly due to the high menu prices), server was walking around staring at things because he didn't seem to have anything to do, and when I got up to find him for my friend's birthday surprise, there was a graphic conversation going on among employees

I have been to other Ditka's and always had a great meal. This location was not the quality I expect from a Ditka's. The bread roll was good the wine was excellent. The rest of the meal was tasteless from the Caesar salad, red potatoes, asparagus and steak fillet's we had. No butter or seasonings on any of it. The salad dressing was really sweet and nothing like Caesar dressing.

I think someone needs to work with the chef there and turn this around. The place was really empty. Another thing I have never experienced at a Ditka's. So I think the food is why. Thanks.

This is definitely a hidden neighborhood gem. The ambiance of the restaurant could easily be an intimate setting, but large enough to handle good size parties. This was the first visit and most likely not the last. I ordered the crab bisque for an appetizer and steak salad for my entree. It doesn't happen often, in fact I can't remember the last time, but I couldn't finish my salad. Costs are reasonable, the servers are attentive and the quality of your meal is better an anticipated. The other meal consisted of sweet potatoes, and some kind of meat entree. Regretfully, I can't remember, but I can share with you that the plate was clear and someone was looking like a satisfied customer. Nice job!

We both had their Friday special of the day , which was a fish fry. The fish on both dinners was not done properly, where the fish was flakey white, so we sent them back. They remade them both and they were not done right either. We are both lovers of fish fried, have been to LOTS of them, but never had fish that was so bad! We won't go back.

The service was great. We had been here twice before and found the ribs and steak weren't as great as we had remembered (maybe a new Cook), but it was still good. The slab of ribs is huge, enough for two people. The prices were very affordable for a special occasion.

We had been to Ditka's twice before. Our first time was great, our second was horrible so we decided to try it one more time. We went early and were the only couple in the place. My wife had the Maui Maui over risotto and she said it was very good. I had the Fried Shrimp over French fries with cole slaw and it too was very good. We each had the Crab Bisque soup to start out with and it was delicious. By the time we left, only two other couples came in. Ditka's is a nice place located in the Vee Quiva Casino but I feel the clientele is not a group of people that will keep Ditka's in business. Service was good but there were 5-6 staff members just hanging out at the front desk chit chatting. You could tell they were bored due to the low amount of clients in the restaurant.

The filet mignon was not properly cooked. I ordered my steak at a medium rare, the middle was still frozen solid. The waiters resolution was to "heat it up". When they came back with the steak it was still cold. I was very excited to try Ditka's for the first time but was very disappointed in the way the food was prepared. Especially after spending 130.00 dollars.

The food was very good. Service was excellent as Ray took exceptional care of us. Unfortunately, the ambiance was tainted by the strong smell of stale smoke coming in from the casino. What a shame! Too bad as I cannot recommend this place to anyone and we will not be returning.

I am still dreaming of Ditka's! What an amazing meal we had there a few nights ago. There were three of us and we had the nightly special for $29.99 which was HUGE value. The crab bisque was so rich, creamy, and positively delish! Then my ribeye? Well, at first I was worried because it looked a little thin so I worried that it would be overcooked and not very tasty. WRONG! It was so juicy and flavorful and the accompanying sides of potatoes and asparagus were great as well. Then the icing on the cake? OMG the cheesecake! Fab-u-lous!

The service was outstanding. I was told by a friend that they had an amazing pineapple martini but they were out of pineapple so no martini. There were three of us and one of my friends was willing to split the Big 20 oz steak and they had split the steak for us on two plates at no extra charge. Most places do charge extra for splitting. Unfortunately, the steak was spoiled. Once we informed the manager, he took care of it immediately and replaced our meal with prime rib. He was very apologetic. The prime rib was delicious. We also ordered cheesecake for dessert and it was amazing. However, do not know if we would give it another try but like I stated in the beginning, the service was outstanding-maybe I will call ahead to make sure they have pineapple just to try martini-still anxious to try one or maybe I will try chicken. I would like to say Thank You to the manager and because of him, maybe I will try Ditkas again.

This was an anniversary with a special surprise gift for my husband. The service started out great but by the time we finished our main course we waited for quite some time for the table to be cleared while we watched our server stand at the hostess station. And the reservation was marked as a special occasion of anniversary but they never acknowledged. The food was good but the lack of attention to detail made the dining experience less than ideal.

The food was delicious! We had Prime Rib and salad and twice baked potatoes. Awesome good food. BUT. They got our drinks wrong and wouldn't remake them. That really upset my husband because it was our Aniversary and I don't usually drink. They were training the server which made her feel really bad. Wasn't her fault she got it right, they didn't. We told the manager, but he said policy they cannot remake the drink. That is obsurd! They make a mistake and they don't make it over? Very Dissappointed!

If you were expecting the Ditka's from Chicago, you will be disappointed. I'd compare it to a Chili's inside of a Casino. If you are expecting Chili's quality, menu selection, and wait staff quality, you'll be happy with Ditka's.

Four of us were there at 5:00 P.M. for a birthday dinner. I don't think the kitchen was at all ready to serve customers at that time of day. One person's pork chop dinner was good but her crab bisque was not hot enough. Another had a twice baked potato with her filet, she said the top was hard like it had been baked more than twice. Another ordered an entrée chicken salad. She received an appetizer salad with no chicken. They gave her the correct salad at no charge that she decided to take home asking the server to put the dressing on the side. When she decided to eat the salad later it had dressing all over it which totally wilted the salad by then. I had the prime rib Wednesday special. The mushrooms were good but very salty. My potato was good. I felt like my prime rib was not fresh. I ordered medium and got more like medium well to well. We gave the server special instructions for our bills. He never got it right after going over it several times. On top of all that, it took us two hours and twenty five minutes from start to finish. Only one person had a glass of wine so it wasn't like we were enjoying cocktails for a long period of time. After placing our order it took forever to receive our food. Our birthday girl did receive a delicious piece of cake for her birthday. I feel everything was overpriced for what we received.

As always Ditka's food and service are top notch. I must say however, I am a bit disappointed in the fact that they have reduced the number of items available on their Laveen, AZ menu. Seems every area of the menu has had some items removed. also, they have listed on their menu that they have fried chicken and they do not. This should be removed if they're never going to offer the chicken.
