I am sorry but after spending at least $45 and up for steak, and everything else Ala carte - are you seriously pretending to be green or eco-friendly by packing up leftovers in these ultra ineffective cardboard little boxes. Funny because if I order a...More

The memorabilia alone makes the place worth a visit. It's not just Bears and Ditka. The Packers come up strong. Teddy ballgame and Stan the Man are represented. It even has a Ditka store. Service was slow and the Fridge Burger while good was a...More

I usually associate restaurants named for famous people with tourist traps. I was completely wrong to make that assumption about Ditka's. We had an amazing experience from start to finish. The staff is well trained and very knowledgeable and the food is outstanding. This is...More

We loved our visit to Ditka's. They are known for their pork chops, but we chose steak and crab cakes. The crab cakes were not as big as some of the other places in town, but were just as good. The filet was fantastic, great...More

We stumbled across Ditka's after leaving a nearby restaurant due to poor and unfriendly service. Ditka's was a night and day difference! Our server, Nikki, was delightful. She was attentive, friendly, and had a great wit about her. Ribeye, salmon, and twice baked potato were...More

The food was perfect. We began with huge steamed shrimp. Next we were served baby lamb chops. As the last app, we were presented with mini crab cakes. The lobster bisque and Caesar salad followed and they were good. The mains included a 20 ounce...More

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.

Not sure about this, but they have a great wine list. We shared a bottle of Silver Oak cabernet and had a great experience.

I am not sure but would assume there is a corking fee being a restaurant owner myself. Best to call ahead though or email their website.
