I loved the location - outdoor ambiance great. Great place for a drink.Bar is well equipped and bartenders know what they are doing. The steak was good but should have been great. Next time I'll probably order a burger. The appetizers including the calamari were very good. I will come back as I live in the neighborhood and believe that... More

Recommended by a local. The food was great and prices reasonable for a steak house. Our steak was perfectly cooked. Only problem was at the end getting our waitress's attention to order dessert and pay the bill. Seemed we were a both to her.

Carmichaels is in our neighborhood and my wife and I have been going 5 or 6 times per year for the last 5 or 6 years. We've had our rehearsal dinner here and many birthdays. I've had dinner with parents and inlays before hockey games, just drinks at the bar and more than a few business dinners. Everything is always... More

We found this because of a recommendation by the staff at our hotel. Downtown Holiday Inn. The atmosphere was wonderfully classic and traditional. The weather was nice enough that the staff had the doors to the patio open so even though we ate inside, we could enjoy the gentle breeze from outside. The staff was amazingly helpful and just at...

I've been to Carmichael's several times for both business and personal dinners. The food, service and ambiance has been great each time. If you have a small party, they have a wonderful rustic, yet comfortable room upstairs. In nice weather, the open the windows for fresh air and lovely views. The food and service was great during all of my... More

This was my second time dining at Carmicheal's and the food was great. We had the buffalo chicken spring rolls, caesar salad, meatloaf, shrimp scampi, pulled pork sandwiches,and creamed spinach. The waiters are very nice as well. The only challenge was the lady that was seating people put people too close together and the restaurant was not even full. People... More

Though the restaurant is nice, we chose the outdoor patio as it was a very nice day for an outside lunch. This area is next to a mini park and it is easy to forget that you are eating at a great restaurant. As we were there for lunch, we tried a chopped caesar salad with steak and a bowl... More

all the food was a little disappointing, but the service, location and ambiance were all good. Good way to park, eat and go to the Bulls game via their shuttle though.

The staff at Carmichael's made up for the horrid weather with their warm welcome and fine service! Can't wait to get back to enjoy their outdoor seating. Highly recommend!

Carmichael's has an ambiance, to borrow a word from German, one could call gemutlich, meaning friendly, inviting. Chicago is replete with chain steakhouses (e.g. Morton's, Ruth's Chris, etc) but here you're likely to see locals who are known by greeters and waitstaff as well. The room itself is large and roomy with capacious leather booths and generous seating at the... More
