Steaks were second to none, sides were a bit high priced, but also very flavorful. Waiter lacked knowledge and forgot our order details, but otherwise attentive.

I ate here with a friend on a recent business trip. The menu selections, service, and food were all excellent. We arrived early for our reservation and couldn't find a place to sit, so we started out at an uncrowded bar down the street then came back. Thoroughly enjoyed the steaks and the atmosphere (helped that the Cubs were on... More

Top-end choice of steaks, and cooked to perfection. Lived up to it's reputation. You pay for the quality, but then you get the best.

The food was delicious at Ditka's! The environment was very elegant, but not fussy. The menu offers a wide variety of selections to accommodate everyone's tastes. We were with a large group and the service was amazing! The server offered wonderful suggestions for appetizers and drinks. The meal was well priced, great value with great food! Great restaurant!

We stopped by for lunch...had the nachos (highly recommend) for an appetizer and I had the fish tacos (outstanding), my husband had the California burger (spicy but excellent). Food is always awesome along with the atmosphere and service! Will continue to return.

The best part of this meal was when Mike Ditka walked in and spoke to us briefly. I had salmon which was very tasty. The steaks looked great. The service was excellent.

My husband and I were in town on vacation and had seen a lot of great reviews. We went in and did not have a reservation, but were able to be seating right away upstairs in the bar area. The area had some high tops and then lower tables other than the bar. It was packed and very loud, but... More

Had the seafood pasta as one of the only things that doesn't seem to be on every American restaurant menu, it was nice but nothing special. Lots of cool memorabilia and supposedly a great wine list given all certificates on the wall

For starters the Iron Mike's Ale was excellent, I usually am not into ales but this was an exception for me. I loved "Da Pork Chop" which was perfectly cooked and came with amazing mashed sweet potatoes. The service was outstanding, the waiter was very helpful and accommodating to our requests. The atmosphere while walking through the building and seeing... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
