Dinner was really good! We did feel a little rushed as we hadn’t even got through our first cocktail before the dinner arrived. Celebrating a anniversary but dinner was super fast! Overall though food and drinks were great!

One of my favorite "loud" restaurants. These is not a place for a romantic dinner. It's a rowdy place to party with friends. The food and service are excellent. I come here for one dish, the lamb chops oreganato. Best lamb chops anywhere. But don't miss the side dishes, which are all inventive and equally delicious. Bring your appetite. While the prices are steep, the portions are very generous.

Perfect Steak. Really good and it was hot as it came to the table and the medium rare slowly turned in the ordered medium. Thumbs up.

Outstanding in all aspects, expensive but worth it. Great service and our waiter made it a very personal experience, he gave us a informative personal tour and shared a lot of history of Harry and the building. Highly recommend.

A truly outstanding meal for my partners 30th. The steaks were cooked to perfection and the service could not have been better. They even brought out a slice of lemon cheesecake with a candle for no extra charge! Oh and the garlic mashed potatoes, wow!

This place was nothing special. I ordered the NY strip and my husband ordered the ribeye which was supposed to be 18 oz. It didn’t look that big and the flavor in my strip was much better. Our server wasn’t friendly at all.

It's been a few years since I've been to Chicago, but this has been my favorite place to eat. My wife wanted a frozen drink, but she was told that they don't have a blender. Then she asked about the Wedge Salad, and the server said that it was half a head of Iceberg Lettuce. That must be the smallest head of lettuce, because my wife was very disappointed paying that much for such a tiny salad. Then we got our Filet Mignon and while they tasted delicious as always, both of us had big chunks of fat and gristle on one end of the 8 oz filet. She almost choked on a piece she couldn't chew. Luckily she was able to get it out of her throat. I don't know, it seems like you pay over $47.00 for an 8 oz filet, you should be able to eat the whole thing. Not lose a fifth of it to fat & gristle. So we didn't bother with dessert. Maybe if we make it back to Chicago sometime we might try it again, or maybe we will find a spot with a better steak.

Loved the food and wait staff. Was a little pricey, but other restaurants were much higher. Would've liked to have eaten there multiple nights - just couldn't afford it.

How can you not have a good time surrounded by Harry and Cubs history. Our waiter was an experienced sole, working there since opening. He shared a few stories and memories which made the experience even better. The food was excellent, service excellent plus, and the ambiance- well Holy Cow covers it.

We have ate at Harry's several times but this will be the last.
Food quality has gone away and wine selection likewise.
Prices have only increased with poor service

Food was delicious, atmosphere was great. Not too busy when we went, so the noise level was not bad at all. Obviously, more people would make for a noisier environment.

The restaurant has so much style and so does the staff. They are all real pros at their jobs. A model of teamwork and efficiency. The food was equally as great. Every bite of steak and the shareable sides was simply delicious. Worth every penny. We sat at Harry's favorite table and it was just an awesome dining experience!!! Will go there again and again!!!

We go to Harry's at least once a year while in town for the cubbies..........5 of us this time and it was not very good. They sat us in a very small table which was terrible. Food was not good (my steak was sub-par) not close to Ruth's Chris equability. Slow service....just disappointed and we will probably change our routine and find another steakhouse downtown.

I was looking for a good place for an Anniversary dinner, and Harry Carey's was the ticket. The wait staff was top notch, the nostalgia in the restaurant is fantastic and the food was really good. The only knock was on my brussel sprouts side dish which was under cooked and crunchy. Thanks for a nice evening!

We were immediately greeted as we entered the front door & were promptly seated. Before were could get comfortable, our very friendly waiter introduced himself & clearly introduced the specials. I asked what he would recommend as a steak order & he enthusiastically recommended the dry aged bone-in rib eye, which was awesome.

The tomato bruschetta starter was the best my wife even in NYC's best Italian restaurants.

The food was very good with huge portions. Our waiter was funny, helpful and attentive. Just going there is so nostalgic. If you go make sure you see all the history and information about the building and it’s owner. A must for Cubs fans from out of town.
