Food and service was fantastic. My husband had the dry aged bone in rib eye, and every bite was savory. I enjoyed the chicken vesuvio- it was tender and the sauce was flavorful.

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.

Brought Granddaughter for her 21st birthday. Waiter Tweed made it an outstanding special occasion for her. Fantastic friendly service. Food was excellent, as always. We make it to Chicago once or twice a year and consider ourselves regulars at Harry Caray's. Couldn't enjoy it more!

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.

Although the Harry Caray legend was the initial draw, the food did not disappoint. We appreciated the mature, knowledgeable waitstaff and the classic dining experience. Service was efficient and we did not feel rushed. Sicilian-style veal chop was outstanding and all of the accompaniments were delicious.

We are return customers. This year we went a little later than we usually do, and I was disappointed with how we felt we were rushed. Every past experience has been where we could enjoy our appetizer before our meal came. That didn't happen this time. We barely had eaten our appetizer and our meal was there. Then it all just seeemed rushed. I know they were packed and were trying to seat as many as possible but let us have a chance to savor our meal. Enjoy the company we were with and enjoy the place that is Harry Caray's. I know we'll be back. Just a little sad.
