I was looking for a good steak to enjoy that evening while what should have been a great steak, 18oz bone-in Ribeye, was terribly disappointing, very little flavor, hard and ended up more like an old sirloin. The first time I left back food in a very long time. Another dish on our table was the pasta and shrimp scampi and the shrimp was very hard and over cooked. Most was left back. The scallops were good. Great texture and flavor. The service was not very warm or welcoming.
We did however meet a lovely older server or bartender when leaving who was very polite and showed us around the place a little.

The staff and atmosphere was friendly and welcoming. Service was quick. The food was fabulous! I had crab stuffed shrimp, which was served with sautéd, and perfectly seasoned, purple cauliflower, squash, and kale. I believe it was the best food I have ever eaten, and the presentation was delightful! My husband had the dry aged New York Strip with the 3 shrimp add-on. He thoroughly enjoyed his meal as well. We will definitely return the next time we are in the Chicago area.

For the price, service, and ambiance, you can't beat Harry Caray's! Service was outstanding, drinks arrived almost immediately, and the food was absolutely fantastic. My only suggestion would be to increase the appetizer portion size, get more competitive on market price for specialty items such as lobster tails, and lean toward the more rare cooking temperature for steaks. 100% would happily return to this restaurant.

Not my first time to Harry Caray's, but it has been a while and it was a first time for some in the party. I have to say, it is as Great, if not better than I remember!! Service was fantastic and the food - loved it! We had an array of salads, pasta, chicken and beef - each and every one of them, spectacular. The waiter (Luis?) was wonderful. He recommended additions to almost each dish and checked on us regularly. HOLY COW! It is Still WONDERFUL!

Nice restaurant with a multitude of choices on the menu. While portion size can sometimes be an issue, it was on our visit only because the portions were huge! If you are able, split something with another guest or take home the leftovers. This was an issue for us because we were only in town for the one night and it wasn't a good situation to be dealing with leftovers.

Everything was excellent as this was our first time at Harry Caray's. Food, service and atmosphere was all wonderful. The only point of improvement is the server should have suggested we share a mashed potatoes instead of letting us order one each as the portions are definitely for two..

thank you

I have eaten here several times previous to this visit. Each time I come I always receive outstanding service and the food is delicious. We sat at the bar this visit and Greta took great care of us. My buddy and I both had drinks, steaks and some sides. It was a great visit and always on my places to eat when I visit Chicago.

My filet looked like it had through the ringer. It was a rough piece of filet. The vegetables were too raw. However, the service was fantastic! Too bad the food didn’t taste better!! I’ve eat in NYC, Paris, Rome, London and I feel that they are overpriced.

Harry Carey’s is always a special place to go for dinner. The staff is responsive to whatever you need, the steaks are exquisitely cooked to perfection and if you’re a sports fan, you can get lost in all of the memorabilia on the walls.

Like it’s namesake, the Harry Carey’s is a true Chicago treasure!

Overall we enjoyed our visit, the food was very good. Unfortunately, we felt very rushed throughout our dinner and felt like every decision had to be made very quickly so they could get the next round of diners in the door. This seems to have become the norm in Chicago steakhouses. It's all about the $$ and turning around the table. If we're in a hurry, we'll let you know. Otherwise, please allow us to enjoy a leisurely dinner, especially for that price tag.

Our server was what made the meal. My teenage son wanted to try something new, but I wanted him to be able to taste the sauce (as my son is picky). Our server wasn’t sure if this were possible, but checked with kitchen, and it was. Son loves the sauce and the dish. My other son and I also ordered the same thing. Excellent food. Out waiter had a dry sense of humor, and made the entire visit a pleasure. Food was excellent. Dessert was awesome as well. I highly recommend.
