Just wanted to report that we had an outstanding experience at the recently-opened Ditka's in Oak Brook (technically Oakbrook Terrace, I believe). Not having eaten at the Ditka's in the city, and frankly not expecting much, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the entrees and sides. Though it obviously is a meat and potatoes restaurant, the menu (somewhat surprisingly) was heavy on the high-end seafood, with sea bass and halibut (stuffed with goat cheese, blue crab and shrimp) prominently featured, as well as a number of other fish and seafood entrees.
Ditka's apparently is known for its pork chop -- and the perfectly prepared meaty, bone-in double chop did not disappoint. Those who ordered steaks were similarly pleased. The sides were great, and the service -- we were there with a fairly large group -- somewhat surprisingly was very, very good.
The coach was there, and even made it a point to stop by our table and wish my father-in-law a happy birthday. I'd heard that Ditka can be quite surly, but we found him to be very friendly (albeit a bit intense). It really made my father-in-law's night and was a nice touch.
Even with Morton's and Wildfire nearby (and Hugo's in Naperville), I think that this is a nice addition to the western burbs, and, though it's not cheap, I'd imagine that we definitely will go back.
