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.

Had a great experience. We mentioned in the OpenTable reservation that our son had food allergies and the server Michael recognized it right away. He made sure his meal was safe from allergens and cross-contamination.

Very good food and service, just like anything, a little on the pricey side. Based on price this would not be something I could afford weekly or regularly.

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.

We had eaten there before so we knew what to expect as far as ambience.

We had the Thanksgiving special. The food was very good.

Carlos, our waiter was outstanding. Although he had never seen us before, he treated us like old friends and took care of everything we requested.

This is a fantastic tradition / must go to place when visiting the city. Have celebrated Thanksgiving there twice. The food is of highest quality and spectacular service never disappoints. The wait staff are seasoned champions who are a constant in this establishment just like the atmosphere and delicious food.

We happened upon Harry’s visiting Chicago. We had been to a concert and ducted in for a bite afterwards. We felt very welcomed and pampered. Carlos our waiter made several suggestions, he was spot on. Since we did have steak that night, we went back the next night
Everything from appetizers to desserts were delicious

While visiting Chicago, my husband and I took a Gangster tour in which stopped at Harry Caray's to see the wall photo's and gangster paraphernalia and decided we liked the menu. We made reservations for the same night. The service was great. I ordered the scallops and my husband the small filet with hash browns. The flavor of the purple roasted purple cauliflower with the truffle oil was so delicious as was the scallops. We will definitely return on our next trip to Chicago.

The set menu was outstanding! We each had a wedge salad, 8 oz filet with mashed potatoes and asparagus. My wife had tiramisu while I had key lime pie. Our steaks were done to perfection, her’s medium well and mine medium. The desserts were incredible, although we couldn’t finish them. Our waiter, Don, enjoyed his job way too much! He enjoyed cutting up with us and helped make it a very enjoyable meal and evening. We will be back!
