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.

Love Ditka’s at this location and I sure hope that they don’t close it. The food is fantastic and the service is very good. Best ribs in town!

Service was great. Thoroughly accommodated need to be out for theater reservations and food was outstanding. Will miss this location if it closes due to lost lease

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.💯
I would definitely come back again. 😃👍🏼

This is the third time we have dined at Ditka’s but sadly our last. What used to be an up scale experience is now just an expensive okay meal.

It was a very nice dinner. Our waitress was really pleasant and her service was awesome. Food was great. A little pricey on drinks but I know it's what you pay in a nicer restaurant.

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.

Went to Ditka’s because it was close to our hotel, within walking distance...Drew was our waiter and was very cordial and welcoming...we ordered the shrimp cocktail as our shareable appetizer....4 humongous shrimp, tasty and sweet....I had the 12 oz prime rib with was cooked perfectly and served with sautéed mushrooms; my wife had the half chicken which proved to be too much food for her...no small chicken here, served with whipped potatoes and brussel sprouts, tasty and tender. Had enough food, didn’t have room for dessert. :( Restaurant is a popular place, would go again if we were in the city again...

We happened to go to Ditka’s on a football Sunday when the Bears were playing. Boy, was it ever loud! But it was also fun 😊. Great food and thank goodness the Bears won!

The steaks were excellent. It is fairly expensive but the service was good. We were there during a Bears game so it was quite loud in the downstairs dining area-but kind of fun.

This was my second time in this restaurant. This was after visiting it >5yrs ago. At that time the waiter was exceptional and outshined the food and everything else. I don’t say the food was not great, it was good, but the waiter was special.
This time the waiters were good: attentive and responsive. The food though was alright: fillet mignon could have been tastier and the berry cake was a bit artificial.
As the overall atmosphere was good the place gets 4 stars this time.
