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.

We've eaten at ditka's in downtown Chicago several times and it is a very nice restaurant. Service is impeccable and the food is very good. They have a great bar and it is just a very nice place to be. Staff is super friendly and on our last visit Da Coach himself was in the restaurant.

Every time we come here, we are treated like royalty! The staff is personable and very accommodating. The Bruschetta is so tasty with the melted Brie on top of the Crostini and the tomato blend served on the side. Every bite was crunchy and had all the flavors. The Paddlesteak was served a perfect rare and cut like butter. Juicy & Flavorful. For the sides, the corn ended up being the big winner. Every person commented on how fresh it tasted. Twice Baked and regular baked are humongous and can easily serve 3pp each. Carrot cake is to die for along with the banana cream pie. Our server was knowledgeable and steered us in all the right directions. Our waters were always kept full and the timing of the meal was on point. Absolutely love this place. The bar area can be quite noisy and this last time it got a little too warm for my liking. Excellent food & Service.

Usually my go to when in town but past two visits have been a let down. This trip the burger was under cooked, ordered medium and came out med rare at best, and the Bloody Mary wasn’t up to par. Dig the place though. Always good service and views ... just won’t be going back for awhile.

Our group enjoyed a Saturday brunch. We were in town for Hamilton and had an 11:30 reservation. We were seated promptly and greeted with smiles and table service. Our orders came very quickly; the restaurant was about half full. I really enjoyed the avocado chicken bacon sandwich; very fresh and tender. My friends ordered the traditional eggs Benedict, and one said it was the best she’d had. We enjoyed wine from an extensive wine list. All in all, delicious food, served quickly and professionally. Mega sports ambience, including a Big Packers wall!

Food, service was outstanding. My family took me out for Mothers’ day. We had porchops, salmon prepared differently with sushi rice and fried vegetables which was very tasty. They had a good crowd despite being Mother’s Day, several families were enjoying the ambience, food and service.

We had lunch on Mother's day. It was a great place to go for the Holiday. The bloody mary's were great. The Coconut shrimp appetizer was excellent. The best surprise were the burger's. It was one of the best I have every had. Thick, juicy and very flavorful. The prime rib sandwich and the fish tacos were also popular with our group. The service was outstanding and it is great to look at all the old Jersey's and old photos for the Bears.

Enjoyable dinner for a family of five. Two of our young boys had steaks, which came out nicely; the third had buttered noodles, which satisfied him as well. I had a steak cooked medium well, and it arrived closer to "well" than "medium". My mistake--next time I'll ask for medium. I had a fantastic crab cake on the side, which I can highly recommend. My wife enjoyed her meal of scallops. The waiter brought out a small celebratory cake, as it was my wife's birthday. We added on a couple of other desserts, which were good. In a nutshell it was a very nice evening with good food and good service. I felt the service was 4-star, not 5-star, and the same for the food. I would happily return in the future.

Food was good, when we finally received it. Seemed like it took a long than usual time. We didn’t order anything special, steaks for a table of 3. Seated next to a very large table, which sometimes it was hard to hear at our table. Other than that, dinner was very enjoyable. Steaks came as ordered & delicious. Would definitely go back.
