Try Carmichael's before they close

Carmichael's is a great place for steaks, and the balance of the menu is very good, also. We had a salad which is certainly big enough for two to share. We also had the Irish burger.

My son and I and a business associate visited the above on the evening of Friday 16th January. Our table was booked for 4-30pm but due to heavy traffic from O'Hare we did not arrive until 5pm but they saved the table for us. Whilst it was quite empty when we arrived it quickly filled almost to capacity before we... More

Went before a Bulls Game. In and out in a comfortable amount of time without feeling rushed. Valet parking in the side lot. Service was outstanding. Food was outstanding. We had the strip. In a town known for its steakhouses this place is a one of the best.

The food was excellent. We ate there on a Blackhawks night, so there were a lot of Blackhawks fans leaving as we arrived around 7:30 PM. We started out with the calamari and barbecue bacon shrimp. I ordered the gentleman's fillet. For sides, we had brussels sprouts, mushrooms and au gratin potatoes. All of the food was cooked just right.... More

Carmichaels is just west of downtown and is outside of the River North traffic jam. It has its own parking lot and is especially convenient if you are visiting the City and have your own car. The food is outstanding. If you come as a couple, consider sharing items down the menu as you will otherwise leave with a ton... More

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

This place is a favorite stop before BlackHawks games at the United Center. % minutes away and also Bus Shuttles to the UC. 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
