The is one of my default neighborhood restaurants. Easy to reach just west of downtown Chicago. Great for last minute dinning without a reservation. Complimentary valet parking. This place is more than another great steak house. The oysters Rockefeller and steamed mussels are my frequent appetizer choices. The sides are large and encourage sharing. This place is packed prior to... More

A super decor. A wait staff that is very attentive but not pushy. Enjoy the steak that was perfectly prepared but the spinach was the best. We enjoyed a non rushed date night. We did the chocolate cake desert but ended up taking it with us. Too full to eat it there.

This was our first time at Carmichaels and we loved it. There's definitely a neighborhood feel with a lot of locals, but the staff was super friendly and welcoming. The bartender, Ya Ya, made excellent drinks and gave great recommendations from the menu. Our server, Ilir, was excellent. He was very attentive without making us feel rushed. We had the... More

Wide selection of choices on the menu, and the food and service are excellent. Fairly priced and spacious eating area, and also has a bar to watch games with Hi-Top tables in the bar area.

Ever get a steak and couldn't get it down without steak sauce? Not here. When I asked for some, the waiter politely told me that I wouldn't need any. HA! He was so right. I have never eaten a steak anywhere but here without accompanying sauce. Served in its own juices and cooked perfectly. 2nd time here and both did... More

I have been to a fair amount of steak houses around downtown Chicago and I have to say I was really looking forward to trying Carmichael's. We went on a Wednesday so it was not too busy but still had a lively atmosphere. Very welcoming staff and not overly stuffy. The waitress we had was very professional and recommended a... More

The best ribeye steak I have ever had in a restaurant was recently at Carmichael's Steak House, Chicago. Hands down, not only the steaks, but the sides and desserts were wonderful. The steaks you get at Carmichael's will not require any steak sauces. The juices that accompany the steaks are all you'll want. I also had a Caesar Salad, which... More

I had driven past this restaurant many times, and during nice weather, there are tons of people in the outside seating area/ patio that look like they are having a good time, so decided to try it out. It has free valet parking, I had reservations, so I was seated promptly and server was there shortly. The service was great,... More
