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.

Everything was very nice. Good perfect price was good. Only real complaint was the food was brought out much too early. Barely had a sip of our cocktails and out came the food. We tried to stretch out our cocktails before it got cold.

Food and New Year’s Eve options were fine for our family, including kids options. I’d say our waiter was not the least bit friendly or sociable to a point of it being a little unusual

It was not my favorite. But I know others might like it. It was too pricey for the amount of food given. The food was good just not great.

My husband had eaten in the Bar of Harry Caray’s before, but never the full restaurant until we went as a family. It was one of the best Italian meals we’ve ever had! And server couldn’t have been better. And make sure you check out Nitty’s Vault for a dose of mobster history.

Our family went for Christmas Eve dinner. The restaurant was fetively decorated. The wait staff was attentive but not obtrusive and did not rush us. We had a member of our party with a milk allergy. The waiter made sure we had ordered things he could eat. The food was delicious and we will definitely go back.

It was a great night. We usually go to Harry Carey’s for a Christmas Eve dinner, and this time they didn’t disappoint at all. It was fantastic. The service is always amazing, and the food is delicious. My family and I really enjoyed ourselves. Thank you Harry Carey’s.

We have dinner weekend before Christmas at Harry Caray’s every year. It is our family tradition for the past 9 years. When just the 5 of us dine, we request “Harry’s Table” and my son sits where Harry once sat. The food is amazing, the restaurant is full of history and tradition, but it is the service that puts this place over the top. After dinner, ask to take a tour of the 2nd floor, and make sure to ask which Cubs or Black Hawks Player has dined there recently. Also ask about Al Capone! Great place to eat. Highly recommend.

A great place for Prime beef. Even better if you love baseball/Chicago nostalgia. Carlos, our waiter, and his team were tremendous. Service was very quick and for our 14 people was exemplary. I will return

Took a very long time to get dessert and then to get the bill not great for younger children especially impatient ones so I wouldn’t recommend going with children when the dining room first opens for dinner... otherwise everything was wonderful, delicious and fun and unique ambiance.

Love the place but this time had a large table beside us that was very loud. Not the restaurants fault but could avoid sitting group of two next to a 20.

Fantastic Service, great craft coctails and scrumptious food. Our waiter was superb, patiently explaining each cut of steak. Ordered 2 dry aged ribeyes, a very generous lobster tail, excellent fried calmari and complimentary key lime pie for a birthday celebration. Don't forget to go downstairs to see the "secret" museum.

Harry Caray’s is just about the best restaurant in a city chock full of great restaurants. Unpretentious, spectacular food. My husband had the dry-aged NY strip and it was absolutely the best steak I’ve ever had. Can’t miss the lamb chops oreganato.

Great location with an "old" Chicago steak house ambience, with the menu tailored with Italian cuisine options. The steak menu is limited but of good quality and very competitive pricing.

We had a great evening at Harry Caray’s. Food was terrific, surroundings were fabulous (loved the pictures and Cubs memorabilia), and our waiter (Tweed with the handlebar mustache) was outstanding. Friendly, conversational, and efficient. Will definitely go again!
