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 love Ditka's! One of our must stops when in town. Our server this time was a gentleman name Chris, tall and slender and gave the best service we had while on our trip to Chicago.

Our experience was less than stellar on Fathers Day. Never got dessert. Had to flag down waitress enjoying herself with other servers to get the check. Guests next to us complained about steaks not hot. Staff definitely not on the ball. Have had many good meals over many years. But something has changed.

This is the place where 6 of us celebrated Father's Day 2019 attending early for the brunch with 3 toddlers , Grand Papa, Nonna (grand mother) and the toddler's mother. When we arrived, the table was set up w/ coloring sheets/crayons, 3 water plastic cups w/ lids and straws, and a lovely waiter (James), who kept up w/anything we needed for the 3 little boys. Grand Papa had half dozen oysters, followed by a specialty brunch item, as did mother and nonna had the pork chop from the reg. menu and we all finished w/ desserts. Everyone found wonderful food to select from as has been the case w/ our previous visits. We spent 2 hours at the table and all the time, we had calm enjoyment w/ toddlers who behaved well b/c we feel they knew this was a special time. This restaurant knows how to welcome families. We will make this a tradition always for Father's Day. Thank you very much.

Our waiter, George, was excellent. He was personable, funny and listened-well. We mentioned that we were looking at private dining options for a group meeting and he promptly brought us the Manager to discuss this further and offered us a tour of the private dining areas. We were overall pleased with our experience at Ditka's and would highly recommend it.

This was a business dinner with a key client from out of town. The staff was more than courteous, service was terrific and the food was beyond delicious. We all had a great time and a wonderful meal while furthering our business relationship. I would recommend Ditka's without hesitation.

My steak was sent back, instead of them making a new steak to get it correct. They recooked the same steak still sending it out incorrect. I didn’t know you could recook a meal that was sent out for sanitation reasons. I ended up not having meat with my meal. My waiter was not the best and I was surprised being that I eat at Ditkas often. I enjoyed the bust boy better and the fact that the manager came over to apologize. I truly appreciate the effects of the manager. Not the best experience, so I will bid my farewell to Ditkas.

I'm from Florida but I enjoy a good steakhouse when I visit Chicago. I've been to Ditka's, Morton's and Benny's. Ditka's is HANDS DOWN the best! It's not even close. The "Fullback Filet" I had this past weekend was the best steak I've ever eaten. The staff even made me an item that isn't normally on the lunch menu. Can't wait to go back again.
GO BEARS!!

A definite must. The food was fabulous, service wonderful and we loved atmosphere. We had prime rib and the pork chop. They were both perfectly cooked and the salads were delicious. We did not have room for desserts but went back next day and planned accordingly. The mint grasshopper pie was yummy!
