The third Harry Caray’s Italian Steakhouse outpost opened in Lombard located in the new Westin Lombard Yorktown Center. Harry Caray's Lombard brings the same friendly confines and award-winning Italian Steakhouse cuisine from the legendary downtown location to Chicago's Western Suburbs. Designated the Official Home Plate of the Chicago Cubs, Harry Caray's specializes in the finest prime, aged steaks and chops and classic Italian cuisine. The friendly, energetic atmosphere embodies the amiable personality of the restaurant's namesake. The dark mahogany, mosaic floor, white-jacketed servers, white tablecloths and a veritable museum of baseball history combine to create a warm and casual elegance.

Waiter, Kevin was great, both had small Filet, wife's was a bit underdone, so corrected that and gave us 50% off because of it. Will make sure we return.

Service was outstanding. Food was very good. Was a little noisy, as we were seated near a large table. The restaurant wasn’t crowded, so we could have been seated a bit away from the large group.

Amazing food, prompt service and a great ambiance. We got married at Harry Caray’s ballroom and came back for our one year anniversary. The food was just as delicious as we remembered. We will definitely be back for future celebrations.

I love myself a good filet, but I would highly recommend the pork chop!

Very disappointed with this visit. I have been here numerous times and have been very satisfied however this time I ordered the lemon sole and they burned it and gave it to me like that. This was an expensive piece of fish and they had no problem giving it to me like that.

They should be ashamed as this is a higher end restaurant. Not sure if I will go again...

Service was great, Steak and Lobster were perfectly cooked. The Chicken Vesuvio was a little dry. There was party in the banquet room next to the dining room and the music from there over took the dining atmosphere. The manager was apologetic but there was nothing he could do. All in all a pleasant evening for the wife and I.

Food was very good. I didn’t give 5 star because I felt it was just shy of a premier experience. No complaints what so ever. Very glad I went and had an excellent meal with my family. Looking forward to going back soon.

I went to Harry Caray's in Lombard for my son's birthday. I noted on open table it was a birthday and I told the waiter. No birthday dessert was brought to the table. We go out every year for my son's birthday and this is the first time there was no cake or dessert. The rest of the meal was fine but nothing special. Prices are quite high there. The waiter was not familiar with the menu. My wife had to return her drink for a remake.

We celebrated my wife's birthday. We started out with calamari with was probably the best we've ever had. My wife thoroughly enjoyed the chicken dish she ordered. We ordered sides of creamed spinach and brussel sprouts. The spinach was very good but the sprouts were terrible. The manager did take them off the bill for us. I ordered a NY strip steak and I was very disappointed. I don't remember the exact price I paid for the steak but it was around $35. To be honest I could have probably had a better steak from Outback for half the price. The service was excellent and they did give my wife a birthday cake.

We were there for dinner for Father's Day, and entertaining a client. One ordered the dry aged Prime Rib, and it was not at all flavorful and not juicy. Another person ordered the dry aged Prime Rib with the horseradish crust, which was more breading than horseradish. His steak was also over done.

The brussel sprouts were under cooked and too tough to even cut with a steak knife. Too much of the tough stem was left on, and the pieces were too big.

The King crab legs were excellent, as were the truffle crispy potatoes. The seafood salad was wonderful, as well as the crab cake. The calamari was a bit spicy for our taste.

The Cappuccino chocolate chip gelato and vanilla bean ice cream with chocolate sauce were great.

The waiter was very friendly and attentive and did a great job.

The server was by far the nicest EVER... however the food lacked.. slightly cold... pork chop could’ve been way better seeing that it was the special. The price was fair for an Italian steakhouse but the food was mediocre at best... and therefore we felt like we overpaid based on the food quality... I would not go back for dinner maybe only drinks.

Service was good but food overall was disappointing. Steaks not cooked as ordered and horseradish crust lacked flavor. Garlic mashed potatoes were completely flavorless.

Toasted ravioli the only upside to our meal. Desserts subpar to say the least.

Group of us went for Mothers Day, no ne was impressed. The appetizer of sausage and peppers had a super hot salsa on them, the lamb chops did not indictate that they came with potatoes so we ordered side potatoes, the chicken vesuvio was super spicy and not eaten. They did not have a reasonable costing bottle of moscato wine, everywhere we go we usually pay 30-35 a bottle, they only offered a 50 something dollar bottle, so we did not order any, had it been reasonable we would have had multiple bottles. Just over all very disappointed in our visit, and the worst mothers day experience we had in a long time.

I was disappointed. I asked the server if I ordered my filet medium if it would be pink in the center and not bloody. He said yes. My brother ordered medium rare and his was cooked more than mine. Mine was purple in the middle. I sent it back. It came back almost identical. Then the third time they had pressed it down to almost half the size and most of it was medium well with only a little of it having any pink. They apologized but honestly I would have been happier with the burger. I was a bit surprised when there were four of us and we ate quite a bit they didn't offer free dessert or anything. I got my food when almost everyone else was finishing.

We enjoyed a great dinner with friends at Harry Caray's in Lombard. The noise level was low, so we could visit and we were never rushed. The food was delicious, with a variety to choose from.
The best of the evening was our server, Kevin. He was personable, funny, great with suggestions, didn't hover, and provided the best service. Kevin does an OUTSTANDING job!
We certainly will return to Harry Caray's in the future.

Waiter was apparently in a hurry to get home [9 pm]. Interrupted a conversation to push for our dessert order after we told him to wait and we'd let him know what we wanted. Had been fine until then. Filet was good quality, but too dry and overcooked. Very nice bar experience though, and food prices were reasonable. The steak was not as well-prepared as at downtown location [which is consistently excellent], even though it's MUCH!! less crowded here. If I go back, I'll eat in the bar, and see if that works out better.
