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.

I took my daughter there for our first night in Chicago and the food was a bit pricey but amazing food.

Food was great; the staff was amazing—especially Jennifer who went above and beyond; great ambiance; and very little noise even in the bar area.

Love the place. Can’t go wrong where ever you sit. In the lounge, dinning room or upstairs dinning rooms. We made it for Happy Hour today. Had 3 Happy Hour appetizers for dinner. Cost me like 14$. Sweet.

Great spot for before the Broadway Playhouse Theatre! Good steak. Prices seem a little high. We've had the nachos in the past and raved about them to ohers but this time, while they were good, they were not as outstanding as we remembered.

First time here, but will come back! Atmosphere and food was phenomenal! It was pricey, but well worth the money. Can't wait to come back and bring my son, who wasn't able to be with us. My Rib-eye steak with the horseradish crust was to die for. The whole family loved the large portion shareable lobster mac-and-cheese.

This is our first time this year and the food remains as good as we remember it. Everything from salmon to steak and pork chops are excellent. We found out John Vincent retired - it was nice to catch him every once in a while when we dined here over the last 3-4 years. Always can count on good food and service.

Arrived a little early for our reservation and were given a table in the bar area. It was a bit noisy but we were ok with that. Waiter was very friendly and accommodating. We ordered cocktails (Bloody Mike and Old Fashioned). Cocktails were great. We ordered the pot roast nachos as an appetizer and they didn’t let us down. They were delicious.
For dinner I ordered the strip steak and my husband ordered the paddle steak. His arrived perfectly cooked. Mine on the other hand, was supposed to be medium but was quite rare. I called the waiter over and he was very quick to correct the situation. Steak came back out perfectly. The manager even stopped by to check that my steak was now ok. Both of us were too full for dessert.
Overall, nice dinner but I wouldn’t recommend eating in bar area as it was too loud and crowded with people constantly bumping into our table.

We had a wonderful experience at Ditka’s. Everything was excellent except for the pork chop I ordered. The meat was overly tough and difficult to cut with a steak knife. When the waiter came by to ask how everything was and found out the state of the chop, he was apologetic and they ended up comping the chop, and they made me a fresh one to take home. It was a great example of a restaurant taking care of an issue.

Thank you for your stopping in. We are so sorry about the Pork chop. Sadly, every once in a while there is a piece that is not up to par and it slips by. I am happy we were able to get you something to take home. We look forward to seeing you again.
