This is one of our hangouts, not only in Chicago but in Oak Brook as well. Everything on the menu is amazing. We actually have never had a bad meal there in all the years of eating here. The employees area all awesome from the hostess, to the servers to the bus boys. I will throw valet in there too.... More

Went for a special dinner with friends as it is a little pricey but we not only had a great time but the food was wonderful. Full menu, service was paced slow, not rushed at all. My husband even saw Mike D. Great!

Just a heads up, this is not a restaurant with a great bar atmosphere. This is more of a restaurant pushing more of a food atmosphere. I'm going to keep this review short and sweet. The food is very good, unfortunately very expensive. Service, just ok nothing special. If my water glass is half empty or my drink half empty... More

This restaurant was right next door to our hotel. We had a great lunch on our arrival day and then enjoyed the patio for an afternoon drink. Also had a light supper in the lounge upstairs, (it was a bit chilly near the window). Service was always very fast and efficient. Meals were great!

Wow what a fabulous dinner we had at Ditka's. It was just a lucky choice as we were planning on another steak house in the city, and could not get reservations at the time we asked. The service was top rate, the quality of the steaks were the best by far (per all of the people in our group). You... More

typical testosterone festival with huge expensive meats but only so so side dishes and freakish pricing. One in our party got pretty violently ill from the seafood platter. Mixed drinks were bust - watery. It is not a bod place - but certainly not worth the effort or the prices.

The food was good, traditional meat and potatoes fare. The sports decor is fun and wel done. If you are a sports fan, add a star to this review.

Chicago Coaching Icon Ditka has done a great job with this Miracle Mile steakhouse in a city of big-name steakhouses. Good value, solid preparation, colorful location with lots of memorabilia from all Chicago Teams, not just Bears. Beef the highlight, loved the Onion Straws - highly recommended. Desserts fun. Surprisingly, service was good BUT did not get the delivery right... More
