Harry Caray's isn't just popular with locals, but celebrities as well. Well-known names like Evanston native Jeremy Piven, "Desperate Houswives" heartthrob James Denton, Chicago Blackhawks star Patrick Kane and Chicago cubs legend Ernie Banks have all staked a claim in the restaurant's latest venture. Rumor has it the famous investors plan to frequent the venue whenever their schedules permit, making Navy Pier the newest celebrity-spotting site.
Fortunately, the space, which seats 300 inside and another 215 on its outdoor patio, is large enough to host herds of fans and hungry tourists. Guests can kick back and watch the game on one of 30 flat-screens or browse the venue's extensive memorabilia collection, including the two display case-lined rooms in the center of the restaurant, aptly called Harry’s Museum.
The casual menu features signature Harry Caray items like the popular build-your-own-burger option, as well as a selection of sandwiches, pastas, pizzas and salads. Those who dine at the restaurant can also score special "Navy Pier Deals" like discounts to local attractions including the Chicago Children's Museum, Navy Pier’s IMAX Theater and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater, among others.
Average cost: $10-$20
