I met 5 of my childhood friends there on last Monday night. The ambience was wonderful, food delicious and customer service was par excellent! I would recommend Harry Carey's to my friends who live in Chicago and friends who are visiting!

Thank you to the kind staff and professionalism of everyone who helped make our dinner superb!

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.

Service was great but the food was a disappointment. Ordered steak medium rare, came medium and was very dry with no flavor. Burshetta was basically just tomatoes on bread. Came here based on reviews and was mislead. Good thing the wine was good!

We had out of town guests for New Year’s Eve. We wanted a more casual dinner. Our waiter, I believe his name was Tweed, was outstanding. He knew when to come by, interact with us and never pestered us. If I have his name wrong, he has a handle bar mustache. Food was awesome. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Great atmosphere of Chicago history.

Steaks were great! The chicken vesuvio is touted as best in the city, but I found it had very little taste. Rosebud on Rush has the best vesuvio. Sorry Harry!

Ordered our food and salads. Th salads came out and one was wrong, had to wait for the waiter but in the mean time the food came. Told them we just got our salads and one was wrong. Said no problem we’ll take it back to the kitchen. Which means keeping it warm and dried out. Brought food back and pasta was depends out, white fish was dry and brown. Been to this restaurant several time. Not sure if because we had 2 kids with us but an expensive bill for what we got and service. Not sure I’ll go back.

Food was not up to the quality you would expect for the prices. One meal was completely inedible, the waiter took the dish not even bothering to ask why it was untouched. We paid for a meal that maybe had 4 bites taken. We are not ones to complain and feel a waiter should ask when removing a plate why the food went untouched. Steak dinner was overdone.

The restaurant was almost empty when we arrived so I’m not sure why they sat us one foot away from the only other occupied table. Half of us were squeezed into our seats as a result, and we were facing a wall on top of it. With 98% of the seats available, it was disappointing they seated us like that. The service was good and ambiance as we walked around was neat, including the gangster basement.

Quick weekend getaway to Chicago with some friends who had never been to the big city before. Staying downtown off of Michigan Ave. and looking at surrounding restaurants, we chose Harry's because the menu offered variety, prices were modest, and seating time was minimum. We all enjoyed our appetizers, drinks, and main courses. Carlos was an incredible server and is an asset to the restaurant. Harry Caray's has always prided themselves on their meats and they did not disappoint. This place is more than just a novelty. Thanks!
