I've been there a few times.
Don't eat at Pizza Due. You would think it was just as good as Pizza Uno since they were both started by the same person, but Due sucked. I've heard Uno is really good though.
Harry Caray's Italian Steakhouse was very good as was Shaw's Crab House.
I also ate in the bar area at Frontera Grill which is owned by Rick Bayless, who won Top Chef Masters. The food was good but not amazing. You need to book a reservation in advance to sit in the restaurant area.
