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.

Everything was amazing. From the colossal shrimp cocktail, crab bisque, shrimp gumbo, dry-aged ribeye, Berkshire pork chops, Fullback filet Mignon, lobster mac & cheese, and desserts, everything was cooked perfectly. Staff was very attentive. My waiter made some excellent recommendation. We even got to meet Mike Ditka. This was the best meal I had in Chicago.

I had higher expectations, thinking I was heading to a top Chicago steakhouse. I would consider this more of a sportsbar with higher level food. We had the wedge salad (perfect), the crab bisque (good), and the dry aged ribeye cooked medium rare. The ribeye lacked flavor and didn’t stand out to me as exceptional, which is what I’ve come to expect from Chicago institutions. Overall, I would say our experience was “fine,” but not one I would repeat.
