Good seafood

I have eaten here several times. Good seafood, attentive service. A bit loud. Would not consider this a romantic place for dinner. More utilitarian. Pricey.

I really enjoy breakfast at Holy Mackerel whenever I'm staying in the Westin Yorktown Lombard hotel (see my review of it). They have a nice variety of items on their menu, and several choices of jam/jelly flavors for my toast (I recall at least 5). I enjoyed a skillet platter. One caution, I come from a small town and the... More

Attended a conference at the Westin Yorktown, in which this Holy Mackerel is located. Greeted quickly and very courteously. The menu was extensive. I tried the Deep Dish omelet, an adaptation of Chicago area's famous pizzas. The 4 egg concoction was brimming with sausage, peppers and onions, and kept me full most of the day. The cost was a little... More

Food here is top notch, specially the bone in steak which you see in their tarps. Service and ambience is good. This restaurant is also Harry Caray's. This is the fine dining resto and Harry is the sports bar place but the food you can order at either place. The only thing that kept me from giving this place a... More

the food overall was tasty and the service was good, but didn't seem to be "fresh" enough, perhaps too many frozen items served.

I enjoyed lunch here last Saturday while staying at the Westin. The staff was friendly and helpful. The burger was delicious! The artwork and old photos were unique and interesting.

We dined here for a large private breakfast buffet. I absolutely LOVED their coffee! My SIL loved their perfectly cooked bacon (she ate 7 pieces)! My kids ate more fruit today than all week...they said it was "perfectly cut and presented"! Thanks for taking care to make our brunch so wonderful!

Went to this restaurant because it was attached to the Harry Carey restaurant. A party of 13 people, and we were presented with both menus. With 13 people we had a variety of items from both menus, including hors d'oeuvres. No one had a greast meal, the basic comment was just ok. THe oysters Rockefeller were so bad they didn't... More

We go to this restaurant, located in the Westin, at the same address. We love their food, they have the best tomato bisque and clam chowder. Great service and you can also order off the menu at Harry Carey's next door.
