“Amazing Chicken!”
Reviewed February 7, 2013 via mobile

There is a reason the chicken is the signature dish, it is fabulous. It was 10 years ago and it is still. The main restaurant is the best, I would eat at the main location over the Navy Pier one as the menu is different. It is a bit pricey, but not compared to most other Chicago restaurants.

“Great Steak!”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

I was talked into having dinner at Harry Caray's by a group of co-workers. I expected it to be like any other theme restaurant(ah la Margaritaville). I was completely unprepared for how good the food is. Their steaks are perfect, our waiter was top notch, and we had a great time. I can't speak for the prices. I went on business and charged it to the game, so I don't really remember if it was very expensive. I've also seen a few posts that say that the place is loud and crowded. I could see that being an issue due to the size of the restaurant. We must have had dinner late, however, because I remember us almost having the place to ourselves. I would definitely visit Harry Caray's again.

“okay. A little overpriced and very loud”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

The restaurant was fine, the food was overpriced for the quality. Bar area was very loud and drinks are also on the expensive side (even for the area).

“Excellent Food”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

Wait staff was friendly, food was excellent. We ate in the bar since it was last minute and we weren't dressed for the dining room. Great time!
