GREAT Steaks!!
Great service.
Truly an old world steakhouse ambiance, just like I remember from 25 yrs ago.
Sides were both warm, not from the kitchen hot.

Chicken vesuvio was OK this time. Last visit, I fell in love with this dish. SO flavorful and delicious. This time it was just OK. Nothing to brag about.

We had a great time there again! Service was super fast, food was excellent. We had the filet, garlic mashed potatoes, and asparagus. But the creme brûlée is the reason we go. It’s excellent!!!

My group was there to celebrate a recent engagement. I indicated that on the reservations and I called ahead of time to confirm. I had hoped that our wait staff would have mentioned it or perhaps a nice gesture (celebration dessert or card wishing the couple best of luck)

This was my second time visiting Harry Caray’s Italian Steakhouse. I usually visit when I’m going to the Goodman Theatre. On this particular night, the food was not as great as my first experience. I will say maybe, because the restaurant was busy and possibly the food was rushed. I ordered the chicken, which was dry and the wedges were kind of hard. The Mac & cheese had no favor. Honestly, the bread and butter was the best part of the meal. I did not complain because again, the restaurant was very busy. All in all, I will give them another try.

They confirmed we had a birthday and yet there was no acknowledgement. Service got really bad once a big party came in, our server basically forgot about us. We had leftovers and they put all the leftovers into the SAME takeout container as opposed to separate. When we asked them to be separated, the server plopped them down on our table and walked away without saying anything and brought us our bill.

It’s a really nice place with lively atmosphere and tasty food. Would recommend it for the fun dinner and would definitely recommend the crab cake and the wet aged steak.

Brought 10 friends out for dinner. Our waiter couldn’t have been better, gave us suggestions, and explained the menu to us for best results. Gave us a few appetizers on the house . Food and wine couldn’t have been better. Service was outstanding

We went for restaurant week. The appetizers and main course were amazing but the deserts were horrible. Ambiance was a little old/stuffy for us, but regardless a pleasant experience overall. Service was top notch.

Food was outstanding and so was the staff. Only downside were the dozen children running through the dining room causing a scene while the parents looked on. Only thing the staff could have done was tell the table to have some respect. Especially at an establishment such as this.

We had such a great time! Our waiter, Don, was awesome. He took care of us, made us laugh, and honestly made the experience that much better. He made great recommendations to top our meals off. Thanks Don and the staff at Harry Caray’s!

We were looking for a real authentic chicago Italian dining experience for Australian and New Zealand visitors and Harry’s meet the challenge. With one vegetarian and a vegan choices were slim and waiters didn’t really understand the needs of these two but what they did have tasted great and was interesting enough.

As usual, very attentive service we’ve come to expect. I had prime rib special which was expertly prepared and very tasty. Others had chicken vesouvio and small filet, all meals enjoyable. Capped it off with crunchy apple tart and key lime pie. Prices fair and service superb.

Probable would not recommend- too many other good choices. Food was mediocre at best. Great service, just poor food quality- and the restaurant was empty- so no excuse for that.

My wife Sheri and I do recommend Harry Caray's Italian Steakhouse to our family and friends who are planning a trip to Chicago. We have been to the Steakhouse numerous times and always have a good time - excellent food and wonderful service from the staff, who do a terrific job from the moment we walk through the door.

The service and atmosphere was good, but the steaks were OK. I would say overpriced. Harry Carey's used to have the best steaks in town and was worth 50 bucks a steak. They would present the steaks beforehand and add an Italian rub to it before cooking. That steak was amazing! The NY strip I had was overcooked and just OK. There are much better steak places for much less of a price.
