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.

Our server was very inattentive. We had to ask for everything.
The bus person was fabulous. A gentleman that told us he was 70 years old. Far, far better than our waiter.

Sat on the bar side. Waiter was great, very friendly. Food was great. Drink prices were reasonable.

The jazz music was too loud, had to tune it out.

All staff members that attended to our small group were exceptional. The atmosphere was warm and fun and the food was high quality at a fair price. This will be a repeat stop during my next trip to Chicago!

Food was excellent. Service was horrible. The bus boys were on it, but we all had filets. The server never checked back to see if they were cooked properly or how anything was tasting. We sat there with empty glasses of wine for 10 minutes and also waited on sauces we asked a bus boy for about 10 minutes. Probably would not come back. Good food though!

My wife's favorite restaurant. The pot roast nachos are the signature appetizer at Ditka's.
The perch is really, really good and highly recommended.

Food was great. We all had steak and everyone’s was prepared just right. Service was exceptional. Our waiter was fantastic. Energetic, funny, knowledgeable, took care of us. Couldn’t of asked for a better wait staff. Tables were always cleaned off, water was always being refilled and you didn’t really notice them doing it. They were fast, precise and very inconspicuous. We like the atmosphere, it is cozy and friendly. Food is great !! Have been coming to Ditkas for several years when we are in town. One of our favorite places.

Service from Steven was excellent. I had the pulled pork and it was okay. Steven went above and beyond in his service. Bar was out of Apple Crown Royal but they located a bottle for me! I love this place!

The food was absolutely outstanding! Our steaks were cooked to perfection and were melt in your mouth tender. We took dessert back to our hotel room and the carrot cake would easily feed three people! Drink service at our table was a bit slow and we weren't offered bread and had to ask for it. Other than that, our experience was perfect!

We were able to get a last minute New Years Eve reservation very easily. We were greeted and seated immediately upon our arrival. Our server was attentive and they had an abundant amount of staff on hand to make sure they were prepared for the busy holiday, which was appreciated. Try the King Crab Risotto - it's amazing!

We really enjoyed ourselves. It was so convenient too. We stayed at the hotel Tremont for New Years and the restaunt is ajoining . So no need to walk outside in the cold to get to their establishment. We plan to do it again next year. The ovenbaked half chicken was to die for! So good!

Was adequate. Meat a bit overcooked and the price is a bit ridiculous when you see what you get. Would recommend E&Js for those looking for a great steak.
