Get the nachos. They're outstanding. This place has the best selection of apps out of any place I know of. The wedge salad is also wonderful. I actually saw DITKA here once. It was awesome. The ribs are massive and good. One tip: if you...More

Alright, so Ditka had made some pretty controversial statements in 2017 but has come out and apologised about them. While this does not forgive his racist statements and many people might choose not to eat at Ditka's because of his actions - his recent behavior...More

The steak and seafood is really good here. Beyond that, the menu drops off and is limited. 2 choices for chicken, ribs and meatloaf. All in all, a really good meal save the Moscato Wine which was not that sweat and smooth as others.

Wonderful meal at this Chicago institution. Ribeye steak was, predictably, awesome. The range of Pinot Noir wine was phenomenal. Service, from Neil, was unobtrusive but dedicated. Strongly, strongly recommend you make advance reservations. We did and still had to wait a bit. The only reason...More

We had a very large group in a private room. The service was top notch and the food was prepared very well. The menu item selections were a little to traditional for my style, but would go back for sure.

This restaurant was a delightful surprise in that it was on par with many 5 star restaurants. We had the cold seafood platter which was outstanding, and the lobster mac and cheese. I would pass on the sushi roll (not great). The portions were generous...More

Ditka is nice for a special occasion. We enjoyed the service food and atmosphere. It's a little expensive for frequent visit for me.

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.
