I never miss a visit to Harry Caray's when I'm in Chicago and have been going there for about 20 yrs now. It always a great time for me and my family. My son (now 27) still mourns the day you got rid of the Lasagna (his favorite Lasagna ever). My wife & I typically get steaks. Usually Filets but sometimes Bone-In Ribeyes. I usually give you guys all 5s. The only reason I didn't this time was the Service. I believe the Waiter we had was new or at least he wasn't one of the guys we typically have. He was a little slow with the service. Also, the Filets were ok but not amazing like they usually are. Nothing to stop me from coming back. Looking forward to my next visit when I'm back in Chicago in a few months. Thanks so much!

Our waitstaff person has been there for over 16 years and she is one of the reasons this great Chicago icon continues to shine.

We had a great dinner experience and our waiter was very attentive and took the time to make recommends which were very welcome. The overall staff was a well oiled machine working in unison, always there but never overwhelming. Highly recommend the veal chop just plain grilled, outstanding. My wife and I totally enjoyed the evening.

It's nice location and the ambiance is what you would expect (nice). Service was excellent but the food was marginal. My $50 fillet was overcooked and not the tender mouthwatering experience you would expect. The flavor was good, but overall not worth the price and there are much better places to go for steak in Chicago. Had a great time there and the staff were very attentive.

We were in Chicago for the first time. We used to listen to Harry Carey doing the Cubs games and were fans. This is what brought us here. We also like watching “mob” related fare on TV. This location was Frank Nitti’s home and they have some memorabilia about it.
Our first visit was a late night dessert in the bar area. Husband just had ice cream and I had some kind of chocolate martini. It was delicious. We really liked the place and came back the next day. That time we had a drink and a hamburger in the bar. The Holy Cow burger was great.
A very friendly staff and interesting memorabilia are reason enough to come but the drinks and hamburger are like a great bonus!

It seems like I get a chance to visit Harry's about once every five years and although our experience was good, it just did not seem to have the special feel as it once had in the past. As we were traveling that night back to Louisville, we did things a bit on the light side, but somehow our bill still came out large. I only had a single glass pour of a moderate Tuscany wine and for $15, I had expected more than what seemed like a 4oz pour. Our appetizers came out so quickly, that they could have not been made to order (meatballs & toasted ravioli) - they were good but only slightly warm. Our four steaks were cooked a proper medium rare, but all of them appeared much smaller than the "stated" weights on the menu. I have both cooked a lot of steaks and eaten them at many, many different steakhouses - my 12oz dry-age NY Strip looked and ate at best 9oz, and the same appeared true for 3 of the 4 steaks. It was good, but the cooked size was disappointing. We had three sides - the Mac & Cheese which was a bit congealed, a large portion of creamed spinach which was both watery & tasted more like "milk" than Cream, and roasted broccoli which was excellent. After two great meals in the past, this time we left wanting. Both still a bit hungry and more than anything else, feeling like what should have been a 2-3 hour meal was "rushed" into 60 minutes. Maybe a fluke, so I will give them one more chance before looking elsewhere with so many good choices nearby. Definitely not the same experience as I had in the past. And our table was unbalanced and rocked throughout the meal - our waiter saw that, commented, but did nothing to rectify it!

Our waiter, Lupe, did a great job. He was so friendly and knowledgeable about everything on the menu. We did the “Breaking Ball” dessert and it was so much fun. The steaks were perfectly done and the sides were very good especially the sweet corn brûlée which was to die for! Don’t forget to take in the history of the location as well since it was the residence of an infamous gangster.

We were seated shortly after our reserved time at a table seat. A little cramped but ok. We were greeted by Lupe who was a pleasant and very proficient waiter. He advised us of specials and favorites. I selected the sole, which was served with a mound of mashed potatoes. It was heavily breaded and fried. The thinner portions of the filets were so overdone they were tasteless. The thicker portions were ok. My friend ordered the rigatoni with vodka sauce. She declared it absolutely nothing special. Lupe kindly asked her about the untouched dish,offered her the menu again and ultimately removed the dish from the bill. The decor and atmosphere was entertaining. I suspect the beef dishes are very good so I recommend that you not order non-steak entrees. Good beer list; enjoyed the tiramisu dessert.
