Great food with a broad selection and very generous portions. We went later in the evening so it was relatively quiet. Service was quick and efficient, maybe a little too quick as we felt rushed at the end. Overall, a nice evening.

This was the third year I have take a party of 14 people to Harry Caray's for a group business dinner. This year everything was perfect and the waiter was excellent. Food spacing could not have been any better and that's pretty impressive with a large group. Only gripe.....the restaurant was very warm and the manager came by and said that he couldn't get it any cooler after we complained.

All I can say, Best Dinner Ever. Have gone to most steak houses in Chicago and Harry's hands down had the best tasting steak. The calamari was to die for. Scallops so spot on we wanted to order another plate. had the 18oz dry aged ribeye. medium Rare. It was perfect. I can't find one thing wrong with this meal. It will be one that I will remember for a long time.

Our first visit made us want to return. The food came super fast, which was essential since our kids were hangry. Everything was tasty and prepared to perfection. The service was attentive but not over the top, and a good time was had by all, including kids from 8-14. This is a new favorite.

First impression of our server, from a brusque greeting, was that she would rush us through dinner and out the door. Not the case at all. Her demeanor shifted quickly and she offered helpful information (e.g., mentioning that the excellent kale salad was available in a half-portion when I ordered it with a pasta entree). My cavatappi with sausage was tasty, even though on arrival, it looked like a plate of drab pasta (and nothing else). It was tasty (good sausage and sauce) but could have used more spinach (and maybe some sweet red peppers and a sprinkle of paprika) for color on presentation. My dining partner's eggplant Parmesan was sizable and delicious (she said).
Restaurant is attractive--woodwork and patterned tile throughout.
Service was pleasant and attentive.

I am not a fan of strip steak, preferring ribeye. But at the age of 70 years, can't eat a 16+ ounce ribeye at one sitting anymore. So since we were staying in a hotel, went for the 12 ounce strip steak, dry aged with blue cheese crust. It was absolutely delicious, best steak I remember in a very long time. Combined it was a blue cheese wedge salad as my "vegetable" and what a great meal. Our waiter, Steve (tall), knew beef and wine inside out and was a great conversationalist. My wife went with the Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand and I went with the Meione Pinot Noir. Both were great value for money. Very much worth a visit!

Very disappointed. I booked this for our anniversary. I had never been there before. We were seated at a table in the back corner of the restaurant. I had to face the back wall as the tables were too close not enough room for my husband to sit there. We felt very rushed by our waiter. No time to enjoy our drinks before ordering. Had to hurry and decide on what we wanted to eat as the waiter came back 4 times in less than 10 minutes. Funny he didn't come back when my husband wanted another drink or when we had to switch plates as my steak was medium rare and we both ordered medium (my husband will eat medium rare sometimes).
Needless to say, our entire meal including dessert was only 1 hour and 10 minutes long including paying the bill. Again, I felt like they rushed us. Yet our server was standing in the hallway when we were looking at the memoriabilia. Guess they weren't that busy!
Now I can say that I have been to Harry Carry's. Holy Cow!

I was looking for a good steak to enjoy that evening while what should have been a great steak, 18oz bone-in Ribeye, was terribly disappointing, very little flavor, hard and ended up more like an old sirloin. The first time I left back food in a very long time. Another dish on our table was the pasta and shrimp scampi and the shrimp was very hard and over cooked. Most was left back. The scallops were good. Great texture and flavor. The service was not very warm or welcoming.
We did however meet a lovely older server or bartender when leaving who was very polite and showed us around the place a little.
