True Irish Experience

I have been to many restaurants in Ireland and Peggy Kinnane's Irish Restaurant in Arlington Heights IL is a true winner. The food is excellent with many choices unknown to most non-Irish restaurants. I felt like I stepped back into Ireland.

Peggy Kinnane's is a fun Irish pub in downtown Arlington Heights. The food is very good and it's always packed. They have bands there often on the weekends. Fun place to go with friends.

I'll be honest... we do not come here for the food. But it's a very fun place to hang with friends and drink. There are some good beer selections and a full bar with a friendly wait staff. Booths, pub tables, etc. accommodate big groups of people there to hang and have a good time. I think we have had... More

The dining room is very nice. Food is above average bar fare. The menu creators try to offer fresh ideas but they fall flat. We go here in winter when we want the warmth of the dining room with heartier food.

So I had some time to waste between work so I came here. I read some poor reviews but figured if it's still in business it must be good. And that's exactly what it was good. The craft beer selection was good compared to others in the area. The food you got a lot of food for the price. I... More

The barman, whose name escapes me, but is from Dublin was great reminds me of my times in Eire. The overworked waitress, Mary, did a great job. She needs to stop apologising for stuff she has no control over. The food was good they even had real brown sauce. I would recommend anyone who is visiting go here and if... More

Great Irish Pub - large with plenty of seating. A hangout for many locals. Huge menu and a wide selection of beverages. Friendly staff.

Leave it to Arlington Heights downtown to have an overpriced Irish Pub that services pretty average food. The decor is nice, and they have plenty of televisions for watching sports, but what I'll say is that they definitely have a decent beer selection, at decent prices. So, who'd've thought? Come to the Irish Pub for beer, not food! Novel concept,... More

Another opportunity to attend prior to the pay at the Metropolis. Kind and warm reception, lively place and a diverse menu. The fish and Irish Stew are a few favorites and pleasantly surprise your pallet! certainly did not dissapoint

I want to start by saying this is the first bad review I have ever written. We went to brunch for a friends birthday party and initially everything went great. We were seated immediately, there was no one there. Our server got our drinks relatively fast. The bloodys were actually really good. After that, it was all down hill. When... More
