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.

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.

Although the main room adjacent to the bar is a place for energetic conversation we were seated in a nice quite small room and as usual all went perfectly.

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.

Ditka's delivers on food taste, quality, and prep, and for a good price point for a Chicago steakhouse. Service was excellent - attentive but not overbearing. My only complaint was noise in the bar area. Was there for Valentine's Day, was seated in a booth in the upper bar, and between the loud conversations and the basketball on the TV screens, it was not exactly the romantic experience I'd hoped for. (Main dining room is likely better...)

We went in for restaurant week. Unfortunately all the prime rib was sold out. But I was able to try their seabass. It was pretty good. Although our server took a lil time before coming to serve us, he was very nice. His service was excellent which made the overall experience a wonderful one.

The dining room was fairly open yet we were seated directly next to a 4-top enjoying very spirited conversations; too close for comfort. James, our server, was lovely. He had great energy when he introduced himself and he was attentive without being overbearing. He sang a little song for the 4-top as they were celebrating something; he has a great voice. The Oysters, Scallops, Prime Rib were all top notch as we have come to expect.

I ordered the day boat scallops and that dish was delicious. However, the crab cake is over priced and too salty and it was served very sloppy and unappetizing. My sever never offered me bread but i noticed she did to the other tables. Other thank that it was a quick bite to eat.

Awesome steakhouse with amazing drinks! I highly recommend making a reservation - we have had luck just walking in before, but have also had an extremely lengthy wait because we didn’t plan ahead. Steak is always amazing, portions are huge. The chocolate cake is to die for and big enough for 4!
