My parents and I drove into town in this day to go wedding dress shopping with my brother's fiancé and decided to eat here beforehand. It was my first time eating here and I loved it. My dad got the Bloody Mike and it was good. They got the loaded pulled pork nachos and we cleaned the plate. I got... More

We had dinner at Ditka's on Sat Feb 18 for my son's birthday. Reservations were for 8:15 and when we arrived a few minutes before, were advised they were running a few minutes behind. No worries..... about 10 minutes later they text us and brought us to a quaint table in a small room (4 tables - 2 (2 tops)... More

While on business in Chicago, it happened that we went to Ditka's on Valentine's Day. Most of the tables were seated for two but they quickly arranged our table for four. The calamari was tender and fresh. The stuffed mushrooms were to die for. I had the crab cakes, which were awesome and their cole slaw was fresh and crisp.... More

Went to Ditka's for dinner. Just sat at the bar. Service was friendly and prompt. I had the kale Caesar salad which was very good. A lot of flavor and the portion size was nice. Also had the filet two ways. The meat was perfectly cooked but the portion was very small for the price. I get it is Chicago... More

Ditka's is an expensive steakhouse whose claim to fame is its owner. Mike is usually visible when you're there. The food is pricey and the quality is quite good. So it's an experience for your Chicago visit. Lots of tourists.

We ate well with the special of bone in ny strip cooked perfectly. Tasted superb and sides were delicious. Staff superb. It's a fun place and would be ideal for friends and families and especially if there's a big game on. It's got a sports bar atmos with much higher level food. In saying all of this, it's fairly pricey... More

We go to Ditka's every time that we're in Chicago. "Old School" at its best! The drinks and appetizers are excellent as are all the staff members.

Staying in Magnificent Mile

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.
