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.

We had a group of 7 and had a fantastic time. We attended brunch and everything was hot, exactly how we ordered it and timely. In fact, we were still talking about the food at Ditka's later that evening at dinner.
The staff is exceptional! Definitely will be back.

We were in Chicago for 3 days and thought we’d try Ditka’s restaurant as a treat for our son. It was wonderful! Excellent service! And the food was delicious! I had the breaded perch and it was the best I’ve ever eaten. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

If you are going to advertise yourself as an upscale steakhouse, I expect the food and the service to be top notch. The food was mediocre at best. The service left even more to be desired. I ordered a Ribeye and received a strip. When I approached management they didn't seem too concerned. With all of the options for true, upscale steakhouses in this area, I don't expect that this one will be around much longer.

I can get a perfectly cooked, melt-in-your-mouth steak from Texas Roadhouse; not at Ditka's. My wife and I both ordered the same meal. Hers was perfect, mine was overdone. A second plate was provided and it was underdone (for me, under is better than over). I expect perfectly prepared food when paying top dollar.

Visit Ditka’s frequently. The volume on the T V’s were overpowering. They were asked servers times by patrons to turn volume down. But for some reason they did not .

My wife and I come here every year for dinner when we come I to town for our annual Xmas shopping trip. Usually everything is 5 stars all around. This time my wife’s ribeye was subpar. It didn’t have the right taste texture. It was cooked great but something was off. We mentioned it to the waiter and all he said was “sorry.” We didn’t expect the steak to be free but something (drink, dessert, etc) would have gone a long way. We’ll certainly be back again but I felt the need to write something since it was so unusual. Hopefully it was just one bad steak.

This was our fifth visit for dinner at Ditka’s. The first four visits were excellent. Our recent dinner was a disappointment. The steaks were over cooked and the food mediocre. We should have realized that something had changed with available tables at 8 pm on a Saturday night. We will not return or recommend this restaurant.

Every time in Chicago we hit Ditkas, and it never disappoints. I realize there are other steak options in the city, but they don’t give you reason to stray from the tried and true. This time had 16 oz bone in strip steak that was perfect. Can’t wait until next time.
