The food was absolutely amazing and probably the best grilled octopus we have ever had. We will definitely come back next time we come to Chicago.

We were there to have 6:45PM dinner before a ghost tour that was departing at 8:30PM from Harry Caray's. Traffic prevented us from getting there on time; when we called during our ride the restaurant was more than accommodating and moved our reservation back 30 minutes to accommodate our delay. Once we arrived, we were given the VIP room (table for 6 up a short flight of stairs off of the bar area - a nice surprise!) The only drawback was the noise level in the bar filtered right up the stairs and there were some very obnoxious birthday party attendees that would not stop singing at the top of their lungs the entire time we were there. Other diners were annoyed too, but we certainly do not think this was the norm. We had a great dinner and your staff were more than accommodating.

The best steak and kale salad we’ve ever had. This place doesn’t know how to do a bad meal. Your new bread is the best!!!

Our food was excellent and the drinks were great. We received wonderful service -nice not to have someone hovering over you but attentive enough to see when you needed something. I haven't had the opportunity to enjoy an evening at Harry's in 15 years; and certainly loved every minute of our Friday night.

We had a great meal, reasonably priced and very attentive service from our waiter Michael. The restaurant was just what I imagined in a Chicago Italian steakhouse. We also took a minute to explore Frank Nitti's secret passage.

I had not been to Harry Carey's in over 10 years and after meeting a friend for dinner there the other day I am trying to figure out why did I stop going. Food was amazing, waiter was wonderful and attentive and the ambience weas superb. Definitely putting Harry Carey's back into my restaurant rotation.

I took my wife here for a pre-marathon meal and the waiter was amazing. Probably the best service I've had in a while from anywhere. The waiter talked and inquired about what brought us in town but not overbearing. AMAZING RESTAURANT!

The water under stated Portion size of the sIde dishes and we ordered twice as much as we could eat Based on hits recommendation. This costed me at least an additional $50.00 dollars. Not a good Practice to get repeat business.

Our server Carlos was great. He offered suggestions politely regarding the house specialties which provoked our thoughts. The truffled arancini appetizer was so delicious. The cocktails were tasty. The steaks were flavorful and cooked well. The corn brûlée was the best side I’ve had in a steakhouse followed closely by the bacon cheddar twice baked potato. We were stuffed and ready to have a cup of coffee and head out for a show when Carlos surprised us with a slice of Key lime pie to try. We couldn’t finish it off, but it was also great. I’ve enjoyed fine meals at high end steakhouses but always felt a bit stuffy. Harry Caray’s had high quality food, excellent service but an atmosphere that was casual enough that I could enjoy myself.
