Harry Caray’s Tavern is the perfect stop on your Mother’s Day stroll on Navy Pier. Take in the sights and excitement from the pier by sitting on Harry’s Patio and indulging in our new BBQ menu and local craft beer. For Mother’s Day we’ll be serving up a refreshing Gin Radler.

We were a group of 7; aged 5 to 73. We all enjoyed the food and experience.
Great spring break and MLB Opening Day combo as a family
It was my sons 6th birthday
It was a very nice experience. The atmosphere is very nice. The food was very good. The cocktail and wine was excellent. We have been there before and the experience has always been enjoyable.
Food was awesome and the place had a great Vibe. Cubs were not playing on this evening (series tied and moving to Chicago for game 3)- but would be the a great place for a group to gather for the series.
The location is great, and the atmosphere is what you expect it to be. It's kind of a maze so working your way around to see the sports memorabilia is a little overwhelming and you'll probably get lost at least once. The food was sub-par and the service was lacking. They were very accommodating to make a reservation, but when we arrived they weren't even ready for our party. Overall, it was a pretty poor experience and we won't return.
The food was delicious and served fast. We had a reservation for 1pm but arrived 30 mins early and yet were seated right away. I highly recommend the smokehouse burger and coleslaw! Yum!! It was cool to see all the memorabilia displayed throughout the restaurant. We will definitely be back!
Good food, better stay inside with all sports memorabilia
Salsa is not good. Shrimp was not good. Expensive!
Three of us had tacos and all thought the food was of poor quality. I actually felt sick after eating fish taco. Had to use restroom. Nice place for a drink outside.
We got caught in traffic and arrived 8 minutes after our reservation time. To their credit, they called my cell phone. Unfortunately, I was without a signal for most of the drive and did not get the message until we were seated for lunch. The Host noted our tardiness and said it would be a few minutes, so after waiting for over 25 minutes and watching three parties arriving after us get seated we asked the Host about our table. He embarrassingly apologized noting he had forgotten to reenter our names during the rush that came we originally entered. I wrote all that, so I could demonstrate the level of service that followed. We were immediately lead to a table, provided complimentary drinks and were constantly checked on by the manager to make certain that we were happy with the food and service. The food was great (we had the burgers) and our waitress was friendly and attentive. It was my wife's birthday. What started as a disappointment, ended following a leisurely lunch with a really nice dessert that turned out to be complimentary when we received our bill. Potential Disaster becomes a great memory. We plan on returning soon to try other items on the menu and enjoy the sports memorabilia that surrounds everything.
Food was pretty average. The fun part was being able to see all the baseball memorabilia and photos of various celebrities.
Our server was extremely efficient and very friendly. She really added to the dining experience.
The food came out very quickly and tasted great.
Easily able to make a reservation rather than wait 1+ hour for a table at Giordano's. Lots of menu and drink options. Service was quick and friendly and we all enjoyed our meals!
Menu does not have a lot of options. Casual food only. But what they do serve is good. Drinks are a little expensive.
Nothing to complain about. Good food, good service.
Chicken nachos are fantastic! Service was excellent, too.
This restaurant should be named "Harry Caray's Lite". Yes, it is a Harry Caray's restaurant, has a lot of sports memorabilia around, lots of athletes' pictures on the walls and TV's showing every possible game. However, that is where the comparison stops. Instead of steaks and salmon, this place has burgers and sandwiches. The service was just fair. When we sat down for dinner before a play at the pier, there were only two other tables occupied. We ordered well done fries with our entrees and the waiter told us that he could not promise that but would ask if the cook could do it. Really? It was not like we were asking for an unusual preparation of an exotic dish in the midst of a very busy dinner scene. It was leaving fries in the fryer a bit longer for the burger and the fish and chips in an almost empty restaurant. Apparently, the cook relented and cooked them extra for us, but the attitude of the waiter did not help. Delivery of some items was very fast (dinner served while still eating my salad) while other parts were very slow (he asked if I wanted a refill on my drink in the middle of dinner but it did not arrive until I had finished. Overall, the place is OK, but I would not go back. If I want the Harry Caray's experience, I'll go to the real place.
We had a good time. Not crowded. A little more attention from the waiter would have been nice, as he was clearly not overwhelmed. We went to Shakespeare afterwards. Very convenient. LinasS
We had great service from Mike, our server. This is casual place with good food.
In the end, this is bar food. If you're on the Pier, it's an ok place for a burger and a beer. Keep your expectations in check and you'll be fine.
Waitress seemed annoyed to have to wait on us. Food was mediocre and not worth the price. Last time I am eating there.
I was disappointed because although I knew it was a bar food menu it didn't have the salmon or the regular meat loaf shown on the online menu. Had a burger and it was fine but not the dinner I was hoping for.
Went with my husband and 2 year old. It was nice they had a place for our stroller and we were seated before our reservation time. The service was great, and the food was delicious. It was a great experience all together.
Good food and friendly, efficient service. Highly recommended for casual dining before theatre. Noise level can be a little high at times.
Over priced for the amount and type of food served.
Visited Chicago thinking this would be a place for a quality burger. It was average at best. Fries were ok, Pepsi was kind of flat.
Dining room, pictures and memorabilia was interesting. Not much else.
Convenient, tasty, quick, good value and great service.
Worst meal I've had in a while.
Worst Chicago restaurant I've reviewed. The hostesses couldn't find my reservation--not that it was crowded. While we were eating, I got an email from Open Table saying we hadn't checked in. When we left, we told the hostess about the note, and she said we had been checked in with Open Table, but couldn't point to anything to prove that. Open Table had no such information--I got my points only after contacting Open Table (which has been most helpful). The menu is NOT the menu of the restaurant on Kinzie. That is not made clear on the website. The food was borderline edible. My wife's food, obviously previously frozen, was served cold. The server did take it back and bring out a warm dish. There are lots of places to eat on Navy Pier. This place should be on anyone's list.
Service was friendly and speedy. My cocktail (one of the mules) was average at best. Our pretzel sticks appetizer was overdone and the accompanying dipping sauce was tasteless. My husband said the burger was good, albeit on the small side and I had the BarBQ chicken pizza (without chicken) which was also good. Overall I wouldn't run back but if you're going to be at Navy Pier and want a quick, casual spot, it fills the bill.
This was the perfect stop on the way to the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Both had sandwiches, good quality and service.
This place was something special especially after the cubs won.
We went for the Cubs game Sunday - it was quiet when we first arrived around 6 pm. Got a table easily. We were disappointed that the TVs on Fox32 had satellite issues - you could see the picture but it had a lot of pixel issues - we hoped maybe it would be better by game time. We ordered beer which was fine - we ordered the pretzel appetizer - it came with 4 - there were two of us and we each ate one but felt they were microwaved and too mushy and the beer cheese had no flavor - we told the waitress when she checked on us we did not care for them. We each ordered a personal pizza - but two slices into both of ours we were again disappointed - the crust was crackery and the cheese had no flavor - it was so bad we decided to leave and go somewhere else. The GOOD part of this story is the waitress knew we did not like the food and only charged us for the beer - we were so sad because we thought it would have been cool to watch the World Series there, but not so much. Thanks to them for at least not charging us for the food.
Our waiter was terrific!! We were there to watch a Cubs game during the World Series and it turned out a great spot to watch with friends!!!
Extremely disappointed! Waitress was horrible. Returned food as it was undercooked and cold in the middle, ordered again and it still wasn't right. Was in town celebrating with friends... Dropped over $200 just on drinks and food. Complained to the manager who was extremely rude. We go to Navy Pier all the time. Definitely won't return here. I will take my business elsewhere on the Pier!
We had h great food and exceptional service.
Headed to Harry Caray's for brunch before the Bears' game on Sunday. The food and drinks were great - reasonably priced and we received a voucher for free water taxi to the game. Service could have been better. Our waitress would approach her other 2 tables and then walk away before checking in on us. Certainly would have been more efficient! Otherwise, VERY enjoyable!
Nice outdoor space at Navy Pier. Nice, varied menu. Good service. The food was just average though. Tortilla soup was a bowl of mush and burgers just ok. Maybe other menu options are better.
I came to Harry Caray's Tavern to celebrate my best friends birthday. This restaurant was very beautiful! It was chill, laid back, and fun! Our server was fantastic, he went above and beyond to make sure that we were always happy! However, I was not to fond of certain foods or drinks, but it doesn't stop me and my best friend from wanting to come back again. Harry Caray's Tavern is still awesome to us!
