Very nice ambiance Great Chicago name I wish ditka was there to cook it himself. Then it might have been worth the price for the autograph I could have sold on eBay Was not worth the two hour wait on a Friday night

We went to Ditka's for a nice dinner out. It IS noisy but has a nice atmosphere and the food was delicious. It was so good we went back a second night. The first night we wanted to have a nice dinner so we had ribs and steaks and our guest ordered steak as well. We had the tuna roll... More

My husband and I like to go to local bars when visiting a NFL city. We had read that Ditka's was a good place to watch the game. What a disappointment - low energy crowd, not a great set-up, pricey beers... should have gone elsewhere...

If you love Da Coach you must pay hommege and visit DITKA'S! Great place for a busioness dinner or game watching. Come hungry as portions are as big as Da Coach himself. The meatloaf is simply awesome! Big screen TV's can be viewed from the bar and tables. Service is excellent!

We had a midweek family dinner at Ditkas. The food was excellent. Portion sizes are very generous. I had the 52-day aged boneless ribeye, rare, and it was cooked to perfection. The service was good but a little stuffy. The server had a certain air about him and I got the impression that he lacked interest in our table once... More

My wife and I were in Chicago for several days for a conf. While there we ate at a number of restaurants and without question Mike's was the best food and service. My wife made reservations weeks in advance since we were taking a group. If you have plans on going there make reservations as soon as you know when... More

As a loyal Bears/Ditka fan, my husband was excited before we got there. But the prime rib and filets sealed the deal. Great service, great food, nice selection of beers. The perfect place to go for a great steak in an unpretentious atmosphere. We'll definitely go back.

This was our first dinner during a five-night family stay in Chicago. We started by sharing "Mike's salad." I had "filet two ways" and was pleased that, although two specific sauces are specified on the menu, one is allowed to order a different sauce combination. Our adult son had "king salmon," and my wife had a different seafood dish (I... 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.
