Concierge.com's insider take:
Steaks are secondary to sports at this old-timey "clubhouse," named after the Cubs Hall of Fame broadcaster. Only Cooperstown boasts more baseball tchotchkes than this veritable museum of the game, with its own walk of fame out front and four seats from the original Comiskey Park inside. After the 2003 playoffs, the restaurant paid $114,000 for the infamous foul ball that eliminated the Cubs—then blew it up during its 6th Annual Worldwide Toast to Harry Caray. The shards are now displayed in a permanent case. The restaurant actually serves a decent slab of meat. But many fans prefer to kick back with a beer and homemade chips in the 60-foot 6-inch Bar (the distance from pitcher's mound to home plate) and watch a game on one of many big-screen TVs.
