I love the atmosphere, the service is great and my scallops were outstanding. My companions loved their steak choices. The side order of roasted brussel sprouts was delicious.

Get the wet aged 12 ounce strip. It was unbelievable. Host and Waitress were the best. I’ll be back.

We dined here for a 40th birthday celebration. There were 14 in our party. The table they sat us at was extremely cramped in the back corner of the restaurant and I constantly felt like servers were passing food trays over my head to squeeze by. Other than that, the food was very good and the server we had did a very nice job. I would definitely come back but wouldn’t recommend this restaurant for large groups.

Overall experience was very good. Dinner was excellent as was the service. The dining room we were in was cramped and the table for five was a bit on the small side. Would have appreciated a little more space.

Great experience overall! I had placed a note in my Open Table reservation that we were celebrating my mother's graduation from college, and our server went above and beyond to create a great experience for her special day.

the crab cakes were delicious, but the chicken caesar was not very good. The chicken was dry and there was almost no dressing on the salad.

The food was excellent, but the service was lacking. It was difficult to even order a drink from the server and the entire dinner felt like we were being rushed out of the restaurant.

I have been taking my Production Crew here for the last 13 years for Thanksgiving. We flying in on Thanksgiving to do a show and every year we eat at Harry Caray’s. The food is awesome the service is excellent and we wouldn’t think of going anywhere else. If your in Chicago make it a point to dine here. You won’t regret it! Just want to say thank you to the staff for taking such good care of us all these years and giving us a touch of home when we can’t be with our families for the holiday.

Server Fernando is horrible. The guy was not into his mood to serve that night. That pretty much ruined our experience. Food was okay. We probably will not go back.

Had the whitefish Oreganata and it was delicious, the thickest whitefish I’ve ever seen. We would definitely go back again.

Went for thanksgiving and was busy. Our server was clearly near the end of. A long shift and was not that interested. Overall very average service like you would expect at an outback steak house. Foley was good, kids menu was good for little people and shrimp cocktail was just ok. Overall average for the price and the service was very average. Wouldn’t return when so many options near by.

Our family has celebrated Thanksgiving for many years now at Harry Caray’s, plus several visits during the year. We keep coming back because the food and service are usually excellent. Not this time.

The ones who ordered the fish were especially disappointed. Menu did not say it was breaded, it was. The meal was supposed to come with sides, it didn’t.

The worst that happened is we were actually asked to leave before we were done with our deserts. They were setting up for a big party and needed our table right then. Not only did they kick us out, they pulled our deserts and coffee right out from under us.

Hey HC management: you’re not McDonalds. At your $$$ price point, this is completely unacceptable.

First, this was not our problem. You mis-scheduled your parties and you should have set them up elsewhere. It’s a big space. Or they could have waited the short time before we were actually finished.

If you really had no other choice, you should have asked if we minded moving to another table (not out the door) and offered to comp our deserts or buy us a round of after dinner drinks. You guys know this. What happened?

Overall one of the worst restaurant experiences we ever had. Never thought it would happen at your place.

We love Harry's - the Steakhouse! Food is superb and plentiful. The service is always terrific. We sit in the bar area everytime we go..more casual than the dining room - and food is still amazing.

We went to dinner with 5 adults, 1 toddler, 1 infant and 2 six year olds! Our waiter was fantastic and made sure we had everything we needed for the kiddos. Food was good as it usually is and since the menu is quite varied everyone was happy. Great place for small or large groups. Bottom line: great food and service.
