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 awesome and the food was excellent. Love the ambiance. I especially loved that there was a photo of Big Mike in each of the women's bathroom stalls. Nothing like having him watch over you when you're most vulnerable.

Food was great! Had the choice to either sit in the dining room or the bar area where football was on. Opted for the bar and still had a wonderful experience.

One of the most consistent kitchen's out there - everything is great and reliable! The Pot Roast Nachos are always a hit, you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Great drinks, the service is fantastic!

This was our second trip. The steaks were cooked to perfection. The pasta was a little boring but still had good flavor. The calamari was great. Dessert was delicious. We will be back.

Thank you to the staff at Ditka’s for making our early family Christmas and joint celebration of 5 family birthdays. We have 8 grandchildren and they treated them all with respect. Love that the kids menu has a filet mignon steak option. Every bite was delicious. Kudos to the team!

Huge disappointment to say the least. Seated upstairs not very busy Saturday afternoon. We asked to have one of several tvs changed to a specific game (3 tvs were on the same game and a fourth on a different game). Female bartender was just plain nasty. Explained how 3 tvs were all on the same control and someone else was watching the other game. Another person from our party went to make the same request a few minutes later and again she was just nasty but come to realize she was just being lazy. The individual who was supposedly watching that game laughed and said he was not. Eventually a very nice guy from the staff came and changed one of the 3 tvs that was supposedly controlled with those others (it obviously was not). Not what you would expect from a football themed restaurant with patrons looking to catch some college football.

It was Thanksgiving evening at 7:30 and the place was packed. Understandably, the staff had put in a hard day so service was a tad slow at times. My “turkey special” was very good and my wife’s filet was very good also and cooked perfectly. Noise level was a little high, but again, the place was at capacity. I would go back.

The servers forgot to deliver one order. It was not the waitress’s fault. Really just an oversight. But they made it up to us. So it was a very good experience. The waitress was great! Hope we have her again!

We were in Chicago over the Thanksgiving weekend and were looking for a place to eat in Thanksgiving. This restaurant was recommended by the hotel. We checked online and the price for a 4 course turkey dinner was excellent. $44.95. The meal was average. This is not a fine dining establishment. The servers, though, were excellent. Friendly, accommodating and professional.

Great choice for a range of dietary needs. Also one of your best choices for Thanksgiving if you don't want the traditional Thanksgiving menu. They have that, but they also have their full menu available.

It was a busy Thanksgiving holiday evening! Lots of buzz. I was seated immediately after checking my coat. I was expecting a quieter atmosphere, but I really can’t complain since it is a sports themed restaurant. The service was excellent. The food came out fast and was good. I would definitely go again for a casual and energetic evening with friends.

I went to Dikta’s for Thanksgiving Dinner with three other family members. It was amazing I had crab bisque, Caesar salad, turkey with all the usual trimmings and pumpkin cheesecake. Everything was delicious and the service was faultless. This was the highlight of our trip to Chicago.

Thanksgiving meal. Appreciated that it was NOT a buffet and you could order off a limited menu if you weren’t inclined to have the Thanksgiving special. Handled a limited mobility Senior with grace. Given the crowd I was favorably impressed with the service and food. Very good experience for a first time out of the home Thanksgiving.

I went for Thanksgiving dinner with a party of 10. The food was excellent and the staff attentive, just a little noisy due to small children & infants but that did not detract too much from the experience.

Come come. No game on television at Thanksgiving? Crab bisque is a little hint of Heaven, but most of the meal a bit too assembly line. A great day, all told.

Food was fantastic. The 10 oz filet was cooked to perfection. The chops were great along with the apple chutney. The Thanksgiving feast had all the fixings. Our server was ok and apparently new, not quite as attentive as we have had in the past. Even though it was a holiday, and we made a last minute reservation they were able to accommodate our request to sit upstairs. Just wish we had known they weren't going to have the game on...I mean really the Bears vs Lions on Thanksgiving day at Ditkas and no TVs on upstairs. A little disappointed.
