This was a Very Special occasion so we arranged with Mike Ditka's to have our dinner in the Coaches Room. We were going to meet my husband's Bone Marrow Donor after a 4 year course of treatments. The arrangements were made with the help of Samantha, who went all out to help us. Everything was magically set up when we... More

This was my second trip to Ditka's for dinner and it was as good as I recalled. While not inexpensive, the food is excellent. We did make reservations which is highly suggested and had a great table in one of the smaller rooms downstairs. Had practically a private TV, too, on which we watched the late football game last Sunday... More

We were part of a group that was seated seperately in a private room. The food was very good, but rather expensive (and so too the wine). We all enjoyed the Great Lakes Whitefish.

My boyfriend and I ate at Ditkas this past Sunday before the Bears game and LOVED it. He had the breakfast pizza & I had the corned beef hash w/ eggs and the MAN-mosa. All of it was great. Our server was very friendly. I loved the feel/atmosphere. This is a must go. I wanted to go back every day... More

Made a reservation about 3 weeks in advance of a trip to Chicago. We were seated in the bar section of the restaurant, which was crowded and noisy, and when I inquired about why we were seated there instead of in the dining area, I was told we could wait for a table in the dining area. What's the point... More

We were in Chicago for 5 days. We stayed at the hotel next to Ditka's so we had at least one meal per day at Ditka's whether it be breakfast, lunch, snacks, dinner or drinks. We loved it all. We will definitely come back when we are in Chicago again.

This is a nice place with fine seating and two bars with multiple TVs. The servers are excellent and know their stuff. The Iron Mike's Pale Ale is good as is the crab bisque.

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.
