Ditka's Restaurant, located in the heart of Chicago's Gold Coast between Rush & Michigan, is a Chicago Landmark. Ditka's has a decidedly understated sports motif, white linen table cloths, hardwood floors, intimate leather booths & rich mahogany wood accents. Known for Chops & Steaks including the signature dish "Da Pork Chop" along with a wide variety of fresh, sustainable seafood and contemporary American classics. The lunch menu is full of wonderful fresh salads, protein bowls & sandwiches including the "Best Burger in Chicago", the Fridge Burger. Service is approachable & friendly in a comfortable atmosphere. Don't be surprised to catch sight of Da Coach himself.

The food was delicious. We had a reservation which we received a call to confirm the day before. When we arrived we were advised we would receive a text message when our table was ready. Oddly enough the couple that came in after was given an explanation that they were running behind about 20 min. I'm not sure why we weren't extended the same courtesy. We waited about 20-30 min. Once seated the wait staff was wonderful. Our seating was tucked in a little corner with the water station on one side and and a group of very loud guest of 5 smashed in the corner on our other side. The only bathroom was on the 2nd floor all the way at the end of the hall through a maze.
Food & service were great.!We had the pot roast nachos, aged steak and salmon. Excellent. No cup was left empty long as the waiters were on top wine , water and pop refills.

This is a great place for a fancy but not pretentious brunch with friends. We had a group of 6 and it was quiet enough to have a comfortable conversation but not too quiet to worry that we were disrupting others as we laughed and had a good time. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable. The food was delicious and mimosas were perfect.

It was our first trip to Chicago and first trip to Ditka's (recommended). We had Prime Rib and a Filet....incredible. The Crab Bisque was tremendous as well.
Our waitress was Rae. Could not have asked for better or friendlier service. Give that young lady a raise!
If and when we come back to the Windy City, our first meal will be back at Ditka's.
Thank you for a great evening.... Cindy and Tom

Yes absolutely. We start out with mini hamburgers for appetizers and we enjoy the steak, pork chop and the salmon dishes. We celebrated two October family birthdays 3 days apart and our waiter was just awesome. I hope the lease situation gets settled - would hate to see this gem close after so many years. We only discovered it within the last 4-5 years.

For the price, it was a disappointing evening. There was a ventilation problem, which caused the restaurant to lock its front door, and access was still permitted through a locked side door from the inside of the adjoining hotel, if you could find it. We were seated right next to that side door. The food was fine, but not really what I'd expect at that price point. Servers were pleasant and nice. The food came within minutes of the salad. The bill was wrong. Probably just an off night, but I won't go back.

Ditka’s restaurant was probably the best restaurant ever been to in my 41 years living in this food was outstanding the customer service was outstanding the setting was absolutely beautiful .
Only thing I did have an issue with was the prices are very expensive, but It’s definitely worth it.💯

If you love Da Bears you have to visit, but the facility is worn and getting tired. My filet was ave at best in meat quality for their price. The rest rooms are a trek from downstairs and this needs changing as well. Love da coach but 30 years of a faculty without change is too long

As always we had a great dinner! We enjoyed the nachos, fries, steak, burger, lobster tail and many great drinks! Our server Steve was excellent! We can't wait to go back. It's a 4+ hour drive from our city in Wisconsin, but we'll worth it. (It's also a great place to watch the Bears play!)

Great food, great dining experience (especially when you're seated at the table next to Ditka himself). But 10/10 would recommend and will be back in the near future!

The food was very good, a little pricey, but prepared very well. We were seated in a smaller dining space so the atmosphere was a little quieter there as opposed to the main dining area with the bar.
Michelle, our waitress, was very attentive and helpful!
My husband ordered the special on that Tuesday night, filet with crab meat and Bearnaise sauce - he added scallops (which were PHENOMENAL - his exact word). I had the half chicken which was seasoned perfectly!
Being our anniversary, I splurged and got the Banana Cream Pie!!
The staff sent out a flour-less chocolate cake (which was very good) for our special occasion.
