Ditka’s is a great steakhouse in a convenient location. I had the filet and it was extremely lean and flavorful. I will certainly dine here again when I’m back in Chicago. Well done!
The food was fantastic. The pot roast nachos were definitely as advertised. Steaks were cooked perfectly as well. Highly recommend a stop here. You will not be disappointed.
In town for Fabrication show. Met up with friends for an enjoyable evening. Ordered the Pork nachos and filets. Excellent food and service we always have when we come in town every year!
Amazing place overall! Our waitress, Rae, was fantastic. The food all came out piping hot and the Pot Roast Nachos were a must!!
Birthday for my nephew who is a big Bears fan.
Food was great and all the people were there for
the Bears game. Service is top notch and we enjoyed it a lot. Would go back again and again.
Good food, menu was limited but what you would expect for a steakhouse.
There was live entertainment but it wasn’t extremely loud. You could still carry on a conversation.
Rae is an excellent server. She took great care of our party. We would go back anytime!
As a first time there we had to ask the waiter if we can order, we arrived 30 min early and got seated. However we were placed away from everyone and were served last. Menu online seemed different, prices were not bad for quality of food. Twice baked potatoes were great, ribs I personally thought had to much sauce but fell off the bones!
Outstanding food and service as usual. Never had a bad meal yet.
We had reservations that they couldn't find so the sat us in the bar. We had 2 kids with us. It was crowded loud and people kept bumping into the chairs so I had to move the kids to the inside of the booth and sit the adults in the chairs. We were never offered the dining room where when we made the reservations I assumed we would sit. For 200+dollars..not worth it. Won't do it again and take the chance of no table. I thought that was what reservations were for. The server kept apologizing for the poor kids..she was great. Again 200 for dinner..not worth it.
Food was good and the service is even better!
Great food, great experience and always hits the mark. Sure you can go to more high end restaurants, but being from the south and looking for the balance Ditka'scar throws a touchdown everytime. Never a disappointment.
Had a great lunch here while I stayed at the hotel next door. The service was great, and there were plenty of Bears memorabilia to check out. Food was good and the portions were good sized.
Ditka’s is one of our favorite places. It’s popular and busy and frequently noisier than we really like. But, it’s a very well run place....better than the majority of Chicago restaurants. It’s not a place for foodies....nothing shockingly inventive about their menu. But, we like their menu offerings because they are well conceived and executed and delivered to the table within a reasonable time by professional service staff!
The total experience is always good. It's a little too noisy but all else is great.
Thank you for this review!
You won't miss anything by missing this place. Awful ambiance....little eating rooms...average food. We will not return.
I’d noted it was my husbands birthday in my reservation, but it was never acknowledged. It was only after we got the check and my husband went to the restroom that I was able to flag her down and ask if there was anything special that could be done for his birthday.
Our server was perhaps new to her role and lacked the polish and level of service I’d come to expect from Ditkas. She came back once after the food arrived and asked if we wanted more drinks but never asked how our food was (asparagus was woody and nearly inedible). She also never came back to check on us - only to ask if we wanted the check. We would have ordered another drink.
Again - a fine dinner and fine service, but it left me wanting more out of the experience at the end of the night.
Disappointed that Johnny Vincent is no longer appearing in the upstairs lounge, but the ambiance at Ditka's remains first rate, together with the food. My daughter and I each had the crab bisque, which was wonderful, and shared the bbq rib entree and the lobster mac & cheese. The entree was more than two of us could finish...and the service was excellent. Hope Mike keeps this location and finds a new entertainment source.
Early dinner tonight. I’ve been many times at Ditka’s Chicago. Today I had the baby back ribs. Fantastic. Perfect Saude. Meaty. Not fatty. Big portion. Took half home for tomorrow. Two weeks Aco has the prime rib which is sort of new to the dinner menu. It was perfectly cooked. Tender. Get it with the whipped mashed potatoes! Nicki my server was very nice and attentive. Staff are really friendly and welcoming.
I will pass this along to Nikki. Thank you for this great review.
Wonderful food and great service. The only reason I didn’t give a straight 5 stars was the noise level. I don’t like to have to shout and lean in to hear my companion.
It can get quite noisy in our restaurant. I apologize for that. Thank you for the great comment about our food and service.
This was a business dinner and Jessica Shearer was great to work with. Excellent service - I would definitely recommend.
I will let Jessica know about your dinner. Thank you for choosing us with so many other options in the city. We are looking forward to seeing you again!
This is our second visit to Ditka’s when visiting Chicago. We love the food and atmosphere and that it is family friendly! We recently read that it might close the end of this year and we hope that doesn’t happen! The steaks are amazing as well as the lobster Mac n cheese!!!
We are not closing at the end of the year. Thank you for your visits. We are looking forward to your next visit.
The food was fantastic, as expected !! The server, Steve, did an excellent job with our orders and service......and all from memory.
Definitely going to Da’ Coach’s place again !!
I will pass this on to Steve. Thank you for your patronage.
Our group of 4 comes to Chicago annually for a Bears game. This year was our 10th consecutive trip and we always include Ditka's in our 2 day plan. We are only 4-6 for the 10 Bears games, but 10-0 with Ditka's. They are a steak, chop and seafood house, so don't expect chefs who slave over each dish, but they do everything they attempt in a first-class fashion and provide excellent value as well.
The waitress even kept us from ordering more food than we could handle, which was much appreciated.
I would never ever visit my hometown in the future without including a stop at Ditka's as one of my highlights.
Great service and excellent place to watch the bears game
Thank you for coming here. BEAR DOWN!
It was great to be able to make a reservation to ensure we got a booth in the bar area before the start of the Bears game! It may get noisy and exciting during the game, and it's a terrific place to enjoy pot roast nachos, a great bloody Mary, and of course steak!
Went here a year ago and had a great experience, but the dinner Saturday night was way below expectations. The food was okay, not great not bad but just ok. The downside was our server
forget to place our order for sides, so we ate in shifts. Also, she forgot our dessert order and after a 20 minute wait she went and got our piece of pie. It was a Saturday night and the restaurant was super busy, but figured they would have that figured out. With all the steak houses in Chicago we will find another one on our next visit.
I was late for reservation and they were very understanding and accommodating. Service was outstanding!
Glad to hear you could make it! Thank you for your review.
Food was great, but our server was better!!! She was outstanding!!
Wow, thank you for this review. Do you remember her name by chance? I would love to pass this along.
Good food great service was a little noisy but great atmosphere.
Thank you for your visit. It can get a little loud in here. But hey, It's Da' Coach's Place!
Always excellent! Everything on the menu is delicious!
Thank you for your visits. We look forward to seeing you next time.
Would’ve preferred to not be stuck in the noisy bar for such an expensive meal
Good food, great service.
Thank you for writing this! We appreciate you taking the time, and we appreciate your visit!
The best prime rib I've had in a long time. We are from out of town and were going for a lot of the "gimmick" but everything was top notch: the service, the feel and all of the memorabilia , the drinks and especially the food. Great steakhouse that I would love to come back to on my next Chicago visit.
We are looking forward to your next visit. Thank you for coming in.
Very kind staff. Great food prices considering its downtown Chicago Fantastic resturant.
Thank you for your wonderful review.
For Sunday brunch, love the chicken and waffles!, the pork chop is also a favorite.
I dream of those Chicken and Waffles. Thanks for stopping by.
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.
Very nice restaurant/ bar, a little pricey for what you get.
Thank you for stopping in. We try to price everything as low as possible for all of our patrons.
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.
Glad we were your brunch spot. Thank you for your review.
