We went to Harry Caray's Italian Restaurant with another couple. We enjoyed a nice evening with quiet conversation. The waiter was attentive, but not over bearing. Would recommend to others.

Wasn’t sure what to expect before we came. Was a bit worried it might be touristy and not very good (think Bubba Gump). Wow! I was very pleasantly surprised!!! The atmosphere was casual yet sophisticated. The service was friendly, attentive and professional. The food... the food was delectable! It wasn’t over worked and didn’t try too hard. One of the best steaks I have had in my life. Desserts and coffees didn’t disappoint either. All in all, a wonderful place to dine! Highly recommend. I can’t wait to get back to Chicago to dine here again!

We had an AMAZING New Year's Eve dinner here. The steak was one of the best I've ever had - we enjoyed it so much! In fact, every morsel of food was amazing. The steak (cooked & seasoned perfectly), the creamed spinach, macaroni and cheese, and the key lime pie!! We were gluttonous and it was the perfect place to do that.

You could tell this was just a money making night for them, my dinner was sent back after looking around a lot of tables did the same. The waiter was never around I had to flag him down for a drink and to order. I would not go there when there are so much around in such an amazing city.

We dined at Harry Caray's before going to the theater. We had booked a reservation and they got us right in. The Italian food was outstanding. We had the chicken marsala and the chicken parmesan. Both were really outstanding. The service was great. After dinner we had extra time and hung out in the bar for a bit. The complementary chips they serve there are delicious as well.

This is our go-to place when the kids are home from college during the holiday season. Food is always top-notch and service is great. Perfect if you are looking for a traditional Chicago steakhouse. A+

Harry Caray’s does not disappoint. All four of us made a different selection and all were pleased. The reason we come back when we are in town is the LAMB CHOPS OREGANATO - my husband’s favorite. Cheers to the service as well; Carlos and his team is excellent.

The waiter was awesome. The room was a little crowded and seating was uncomfortable at times. The food was better than average but not the best steak I've had. All in all it was a cool setting and good food but the waiter made it great.

We brought our family to Harry Caray's restaurant after doing some Christmas shopping downtown. Our table was ready for us, the wait staff was wonderful and the food was delicious.
The only downside was that I forgot to bring home my bag of leftovers!

Atlanta couple celebrating yearly anniversary of reunion with Chicago friends. Harry's is a great place for this get-together. Manny our waiter was great! Very attentive and friendly. Food was great, beer and wine flowed freely and was excellent. Also got a Chicago gangster history lesson and toured the "basement speakeasy" to see where the action was, very interesting. Overall great experience.

We stop at Harrys at least once a year. We are always treated exceptionally well and the atmosphere is very comfortable. Menu is good as are our choices. We also come early before our reservation to sit in the bar and mingle. Our waiter (Don) is one we have seen almost every year and he does remember us despite our infrequent stops. Always enjoyable.

Service and food was excellent, as always. My wife and I visit from Ohio every year and always spend our Saturday night dinner at Harry Carey's. We celebrate my wife's birthday and we are always treated to a wonderful Key Lime Pie for dessert. Our waiter,(Eric) was outstanding! Thank you for a great dinner. See you next year at Christmas!

We all enjoyed our entrees. Temperatures and tenderness on target. Portions satisfying. Waiter could have been less stiff. Wine by the bottle a tad overpriced but good selection. We got a quality California Pinot Noir that should have been priced at $80 rather then $97 which explains the 3* on value.
