Service was great and all of the pictures and memorabilia is outstanding! Food was average to below average for the price point.
Ate steaks(not cooked correctly-overdone) side potatoes tasted watery and lumpy.

We brought guests from NYC to show them a Chicago icon and overall it did not disappoint. Our waiter, Tweed, was outstanding...lots of fun! Entrees were very good; steak delicious, though one of the rubs a little too salty.

The biggest detraction was atmosphere. The place is looking just a bit shabby. Perhaps our table RIGHT next to the kitchen doors influenced this perception. That seating was disappointing since I had booked the table a few weeks ahead of time.

The only odd thing was when our server took our drink order, he came back to the first person and asked again what they wanted. Even though they had provided the order. And there was only 2 in our party. Otherwise food was outstanding! Met ‘old John’ who showed us the basement and gave insight into the history of the building.

We were there on 2/15. Had a reservation for 7:30. We were walking out the door at 8:15. Our food came within 10 minutes after we ordered it. Just didn't really give us time to enjoy the restaurant or the experience. If we had said we were in a hurry, that would've been great, but we were not.

It was an OK experience, but a bit pricey for what you get. I've had steaks just as good for a lot less that come w/ sides.

Food was not good. Service was okay. The meal I had was dry in taste and lacked true flavor. I expected a lot better. My wife’s entree was way too spicy for her and wasn’t told of same. Too bad Harry we won’t be back.

My wife and I went with another couple for a birthday celebration. First, 2 of us ordered pasta. Both dishes were so salty they could barely be eaten. The waiter did not come back to check, so we couldn't let him know. When he did come back to drop the check, no offer of dessert or coffee. Will not go back.

Wow-we were impressed! The food was delicious, the decor had neat memorabilia, and the waiting staff were fantastic. The waiter noticed that my husband’s steak was over cooked and my husband ate it anyway, so the waiter knocked the bill down to a 6 oz steak. I was really impressed with the professionalism and impeccable service. I’d recommend visiting this location to anyone looking for a great Chicago experience.

We had family from out of town and were so disappointed in this restaurant. First, it smelled terrible when we walked in. The waiter seemed to be in a horrible mood. My relative even said at one point the waiter “crop dusted” him. The food was not great and my prime rib was so fatty and undercooked I could only eat about half of it. Won’t be back.

Enjoyable ambiance with ok food. Nothing outstanding but it was a ok evening. Chicken Vesuvius was just ok; I’ve had many better for my taste. The roasted / charred broccoli with peppers sounded good but it was very dry so we kept adding olive oil. My wife’s pasta dish, again, was just ok; nothing memorable.

Waiter was very short with us, rushed us. Asked to take the food away after 10 minutes of eating. No time to talk with friends at table because waiter was rushing us to leave. There was hardly anyone in the restaurant so there was no need to rush us.

We were there on a Monday evening so not a big crowd. Service was great, food was delicious. I am annoyed by the water guy filling up after seemingly every sip but I won't ding a place for that. Ambiance is very nice and they have a nice bar too.

One of our favorite spots in Chicago. The steakhouse was relatively empty on a cold snowy weekend. For some reason of all the other nearby table choices they sat our family of four next to a table of 16-20, half of which were < 10 yrs old. We love kids, had our 17 and 19 yr old daughters with us. As for a nice family conversation, it was impossible. May as well have been seated with the birthday party.

Service was aloof and un-attentive- Appetizers were good- Salad was old tasting- Pasta was luke-warm with the scallops charred- Server NEVER asked how things were- Lamb chops were very good, however- Drinks, not so great- Dining room was cramped and not comfortable.
Will not likely bring our Holiday celebration back to this location- Highly priced for mostly sub-standard taste.

The truffle potatoes and risotto balls were outstanding, but the rib eye was of course, the main attraction. A little pricey for how casual the environment is, but I would still go back!

My wife and I drove in to enjoy our anniversary dinner at Harry's. The drinks, ambiance, service, and especially food were outstanding. The chicken vesuvio was fantastic - moist, tasty and plentiful. My wife's filet was cooked just the way she liked it. Harry even sprung for an anniversary dessert complete with candle, thanks to our server Wendy! We will be back again.
