    Service was terrible. It took 30 mins to get a drink and they had to cancel our order because they took so long and we had other events planned. No sense of urgency!

    The evening was perfect for eating outdoors, but the menu seemed limited. The food was decent, but what saved the evening was the weather. Birds were both a distraction and a source of enjoyment.

    Do NOT dine here. SERVICE HORRIBLE. Waited 15 minutes to be given menu after asking twice. Server took our order, waited while others around us were seated, served, ate and left. Server came back with”computer problem” excuse, retook our orders (5) people. Waited again. Finally served. Asked for two checks for table. One check for two people, the other for three people. Check for two people was correct. Check for three people was a check for all five people. Asked for it to be corrected. Server came back with same checks. Said the manager would fix things. Waited for manager. I went to find manager who had not been told of the situation. Manager, Paige, was very apologetic, immediately corrected checks with a 20% discount which we appreciated. Over two hours for this nightmare which added an additional $15.00 to our parking fee as our fee was set for a six hour time span to allow for attending Shakespeare Theater and have dinner on the Pier and we exceeded that with all the waiting. We appreciate that restaurants are short of staff and tried to be patient but this became way too ridiculous.

    We were so excited to go here and try the food but the food was definitely lack luster. The cornbread was the only thing I could easily say was 10/10. But the BBQ was not authentic or even very high quality at all. It was all overly greasy. But it was huge huge portions for the price. And the staff was wonderful

    It was so nice to sit outside on beautiful warm spring evening. The food was good. The service was very efficient. I had barbecued salmon with texas toast and cole slaw. My husband had the Italian beef sandwich with coleslaw. Tasty!

    The experience could’ve been better. First the host told us she couldn’t move our seat and we was direct in the sun. We asked to go inside and they said it was no seats available and it was plenty seats inside open. Then we asked our waiter and he told us he couldn’t move us and if the host sat us here we had to sit here so we said okay and just stayed in that spot. Then he brought my girl a burger that wasn’t well done and we said something to him he responded with the kitchen back up and they may try and charge you guys for another sandwich but he was going to ask and never came back with a response. Then when we were done eating a couple sat next to us and the man was having the same issue with the sun being in his eyes so he asked the waiter if he could move and the waiter moved him but told us he couldn’t move us. We will not be back because of that smh.

    I understand that the place is called Harry Caray's Tavern, but the Harry Caray caricature imagery throughout the place is just overwhelming. Can't you please cut back on the oversize eyeglasses, etc. and replace some of it with Chicago memorabilia, historical photos, etc? I'm a life-long Chicagoland resident who grew up listening and watching with distain Harry Caray's on-air drunken ramblings that passed for sports coverage. Amusing to some at the time, I suppose, but the mindless veneration of his "legacy" I find really rather disgusting. I know it is advertising for the restaurant, but his caricature does not belong on the Navy Pier Ferris Wheel. Out-of-towners will get the wrong impression of what Chicago values.

    I went for brunch on Mother’s Day. I had chicken and waffles and thought I was going to get fried chicken wings, but nope chicken tenders, but it was still good, the drinks were horrible, I know harey careys is good for other food I just wouldn’t go for brunch. Navy pier is always a good place for pics though so I’ll include the one me and my daughter too after the restaurant

    The coleslaw dressing tasted"watered down". Although the ribs were very tender & an ample portion & the rub was good, there was no sauce on them. Therefore, the meat was rather blah.

    Nice night for dining Al Fresco. A tad windy but they sat us at a nice table in a little alcove protected from the sometimes harsh winds. The service was wonderful and our waiter was extremely busy. He was attentive and was exceptional. The food was very tasty. This is a wonderful place to have lunch or dinner while at Navy Pier in Chicago.

    Overall it was a nice experience for a bunny brunch… we made reservations a night prior to breakfast, which is alone pretty awesome. The place wasn’t crowded and the service was quick (we came at 10am). The brunch choices we a bit limited as they had no options for people who don’t eat pork or meat in general, but overall kids got to high-five a bunny and draw some pictures and we got to eat in peace. A win-win for all :)

    Harry Caray's on Navy Pier was fantastic. I had the mac n cheese burger with fries and it was delicious. There was only one person working the entire dining room which was not ideal but they did an excellent job and service was still great. I liked the casual atmosphere and TVs everywhere. Would definitely recommend!

    Harry Caray’s Tavern was the worst dining experience in my adult life! I made a 0945 NYE reservation around mid-November and was told I would be able to keep the table to ring in the New Year. NYE we arrive at the restaurant at 0945 and were told we have 90 mins to dine and bullied to order drinks, apps, entree all at once! Requested to speak to manager on-site, who didn’t come to the table for 30-40 mins and when she did arrive had a nonchalant attitude and basically said, tough luck, we need you out in 90 minutes to be able to accommodate other reservations. This is a drive thru (food quality and staff), literally saw the manager walking around “reminding” diners their time was up. Our waitress returned to the table three times the entire setting…and the third was only because I went to the check in station to request she return so we could get our check! Poor service out to push as many customers through as possible to “maximize” profit, instead of treating there customers with decency. WILL NEVER RETURN TO ANY HARRY CARAY ESTABLISHMENT.

    Seated right at reservation time. Took a while for drinks and good to be brought but the server was apologetic and very pleasant. Seated near windows looking at the lake which was nice. But people in and out made it cold. Food not great but we were hungry so we ate. Chicken bites were hard as rocks and burgers, Cajun Chicken, and pulled pork sandwiches were all bland. Nice celebrity pics and sports references but food not worth it.
