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.

A fun place to have dinner. Food was good but not great. Hearty portions and excellent service. We had fun and would go back.

Not as good as past visits. Seafood tower was subpar and they forgot the oysters. Given $6 “credit” for this. Ended up costing as much as dinner at Babette’s from the night before with no comparison in food or atmosphere.

Worth going if John is singing (he wasn’t this weekend), but for the price consider your options. Food was okay but not spectacular.

Honestly, the worst salmon I have ever had. The service was great considering it was St. Patrick’s Day weekend. They were stressed out, but they definitely rose to the occasion and delivered under the circumstances. That doesn’t excuse the salmon or calamari which tasted like it came from the frozen food section of the local grocer.

We Requested a booth in the back of the restaurant so we weren’t in the midst of traffic and business and we
Were seated in the downstairs bar area which was exceptionally loud. Waiter and staff were amazing and very attentive and the food delicious

A little bigger and more asparagus and an expedited plate (balsamic reduction, etc.) on the filet Oscar would be great.
Half price wine was great!!!!!!

If you can get past the sports paraphernalia, and you should, the food is very good. Had the prime rib, which was excellent. Cocktails were overflowing. The waiters had smiles on their faces. All round good time.

I must say I was disappointed with Ditka's Chicago location, The Sunday dinner menu options were good and the food tasted great, but the service was not up to par. Dessert came with the special and the server seemed unaware of the menu. Our desserts took about 20 minutes to come out and we had to request them from two different servers. The decor appeared to be old and in need of an update. The bathrooms were inconveniently located upstairs and down a hallway past a banquet area. Pricey for the lack of service and ambiance.

Time for an update. Restaurant is looking dated. Fresh coat of paint and new flooring is needed badly. A deep cleaning would be a big plus too.

Our waiter, Carlos, was fantastic. He was friendly and did not rush us and answered all the questions we had about all the choices.
We had salmon, pork chops, perch and ahi. All the meals were excellent. We did not have desert, (not for any other reason than we did not want to alter the taste of our dinners).
We have frequented Ditka’s and try to eat there when we are in town.

Service was outstanding. The food lived up to the expectations.

The only criticism we would have is possibly the crab risotto. While good, don’t know if I would get that again.

The steaks on the other hand were off the chart! They were fantastic.
