A warm evening in November required an outdoor dinner. Harry Carey's is a lovely location, with plenty of heaters, great service and fabulous food.

Excellent service. They were very aware of social distancing and the use of masks. They gave us the right amount of time to order and knew when to just allow a great table conversation to flow and not interrupt. One of the best experiences at any Harry Cary’s I have been to. Food was perfect as well as the wait staff and the hosts.

Excellent as always. Due to new Covid restrictions they were able to seat the 4 of us in a private dining room so that we could still come as it was only 46 degrees outside.

Food and service was great.

I've eaten dinner at this restaurant multiple times. It's has always been consistently above average. Unfortunately this last trip fell short of the mark. My buddy had the chicken Vesuvio (a preferred dish on the menu according to the restaurant)-It was dry and the potatoes and peas were undercooked. I had the grass fed NY strip. Again, dry and not a ton of flavor. I will say the garlic mashed potatoes were outstanding, but the entrees were lacking. Maybe it was a bad night, or maybe they have lost cooking staff due to Covid, etc. I'll go back and try it again based on past better experiences, but this one really fell short. Based on this experience alone, I would not recommend the restaurant, but in fairness, I've had multiple great experiences after which I would fully recommend the place. I'm hoping this one a one off miss, and not the new normal.

I was truly looking forward to the experience of dining at Harry Caray's in Lombard. I was disappointed to find the menu lacking in options. Many items are additional, and those included were cooked spinach, or fries. I ordered the ribs. The sauce was good, but they arrived at our table in pieces rather than a half or full slab. Baked beans and slaw in a vinegar sauce came with the ribs. ( no choice of sides without additional cost) The beans were thick and over cooked, making me wonder if they had been warming for several days. The slaw wasn't the freshest, but was certainly better than the beans that I couldn't bring myself to eat. My husband ordered the clam chowder. The soup was also thick, similar to the consistency of mashed potatoes. The taste was just "ok". Several tv's sprinkled the room along with newspaper headlines and framed photos, jerseys, and other collection items. All in all I guess it was an experience I can check off my bucket list, but we agreed we won't be coming back.

Really nice place for night out. $50+ for a steak is a little pricey especially when I compare it to Weber Grill. Very noisy out in general area with mediocre live duet. Back area much quieter. Service/wait staff was 6 star. Did I mention buying a $6 mask that the ear loop broke by the end of dinner. Parking was no problem. Calamari appetizer was excellent!
Overall, I don't regret going and I liked it but Weber Grill is still better.

We love visiting Harry Caray’s in our once more normal times. We enjoyed our dinner as so on a Friday night. Absolutely great cocktails, and a absolutely perfect execution of wonderful tasting dishes. Rodger our server was great and attentive. Highly recommended there Fish and Chips. All around great dining experience.

Dear Harry Carey’s,

I was celebrating my daughter’s 16 birthday early!

We were at this location to also listen to Gina Gonzalez’s last outdoor concert this year!

Awesome food and restaurant! Loved it!

Very happy with our visit to Harry Caray's. Our waiter was fantastic and they followed all standard precauctions. The singer was great as well. I am sad we will not be able to go inside when it is cooler outside. Great food and service.

Great service with thoughtful and respectful manners. Hostess was terrific in rectifying an issue and waiter Roger was great in all aspects of service. Food was a little disappointing and not up to previous visits. Perhaps COVID related factors in play here in quality of good and preparedness.

Food was decent except the steak, which I am not sure was even a ribeye but not cooked properly. Texture of a chain steakhouse and just not worth the value. Everything else was fine but sure, with all the choices around, why I would go back other than proximity.

Service was ok but brought food and steak and had to request steak knives. Offered desert on house which was nice.

For outside dining they could have taken the time to make it more comfortable with cushions on the chairs and heading into fall if they intend to continue should have heaters. food was very good and so was the service with precautions being taken with face mask and social distance

The court yard dining is very nice . The tables are separated far enough from each other to allow for social distancing . The food is very good and the sides which average $9:00 are shareable for more than 2 people . Some entrees don’t include a veggie or side dish . The price range is on the higher side . Service was very good .
