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

I had a table with a friend on the patio on a beautiful late summer evening. The steak was done as ordered and was seasoned well. Good fries…a necessity. The seafood was good too. Service was very good. Overall a nice experience and highly recommended.

Amazing steaks, outstanding service and don't forget to order a couple of sides. The spinach and mushrooms were awesome. Go with an appetite - The potions are large.

we ended up here because of a groupon but I will definitely go back. Ben the host was awesome! I had talked to him twice on the phone about reservations. We expected to sit at the bar because we waited until the night before the groupon expired. When we got there some tables opened up outside. Even thought they were... More
