Wendy who served us was an absolute sweetheart. She made the best recommendations. Food came out fast and it was all delicious. Tiramisu martini was my favorite. 10/10 experience.

The drinks were outstanding. The filet steak was average.
I had the chicken picot’s and it was overcooked.

We are frequent patrons of Harry Caray’s and love showing this Chicago landmark to our visitors. The food is very good. Steaks and fish dishes are better than the Italian ones, which are somewhat bland. The service is excellent and the drinks delicious. We are glad that the customers are returning and more and more tables are occupied. This also means that the atmosphere can get very loud. Unfortunately, the restaurant staff cannot do anything about noisy patrons.
We love the place, recommend it to others and will be back.

Great service and the food was excellent. Prices were reasonable. My husband I both had Italian. He had the fillet linguini (the steak, mushrooms, pasta and cream sauce were great). I had chicken parm and it couldn’t have been any better. This is as good as it gets. The staff was friendly, professional and on top of every detail. The steaks at nearby tables looked fabulous and the customers were very happy. Harry Caray’s beats many of the other high end steak houses and Italian restaurants in downtown Chicago.

Everything was nice, all except when the server called my colleague “kiddo” when she ordered a Shirley temple. She doesn’t drink alcohol and she’s a grown woman. It was rude. Outside of that moment the service was very good, just kind of spoiled the business dinner we were having.

The waiter was phenomenal. Dinner came out within a minute of apps. One medium steak was rare. But server went above and beyond to make up for it.

We arrived at HC and were seated immediately - (facing a wall and rest. was not crowded) - so we req'd another table - much better where we could enjoy the
restaurant atmosphere decor. This was on a week nite and it was about 30%
occupied. Not fancy dress - touristy area so people were in all sorts of outfits.

Service was exemplary during dining. Server promptly arrived for drink orders and
then menu's. We made our choices and next fresh yummy bread/butter arrived while
we awaited our meal. It arrived quickly and it was beautifuly presented - the shrimp/pasta had huge shrimp and plenty of pasta. The special Vesuius? special was huge with 2 ckn breasts, peas, potatoes. Next on the fab desserts - cheese cake and tiramu were our choices - beautiful presentation once again and huge pieces as well. Everything tasted wonderful and the service was over the top.
Not hurried at all - would recommend.

Afterwards be sure to meander around - looking at all the memorabia in restaurant and bar areas and of course the HOLY COW photo is a must. Be sure to head downstairs to Frank Nitty's vault/underground tunnels, etc. Video presentation - 15 min on discover and gang wars. It's a true "back in time" experience and a most
bloody time in the cities history. History buffs will love it. Have your pic made by the vault and know you are in a "historial" building from back in the day.

Would recommend for sure.

Fantastic all around. Our group of 5 started with the stuffed ravioli and calamari. Next we each has a salad- mixture of all options around the table and everyone loved them. Drinks were stiff but good! Dinner wise we had the vodka square pasta, chicken vesuvio, ribeye, and the salmon. Every dish was cooked well and was delicious. We’ve been there before and will return again.

I wish I remembered our server's name. He was superb! We both loved our dinners, drinks were delicious along with bread and olive oil. The key lime pie for our anniversary was a delicious and unexpected treat. We will be back next time in Chicago!!
