Nice little restaurant. I placed an order to go which included a salad and 40 cent wings. I can't remember any specific criticisms about the salad but I remember I wasn't too impressed with it. The wings were good. They charged me for adding chicken to the salad when the menu description says that chicken was included. They say they... More

Don't come here when when it is 75 and sunny on a Saturday afternoon. They have one server for the whole patio and it took 45 minutes to get a beer. Still waiting on appetizers...

Good food, good live music, and good drinks. Plus, it is an Irish bar with a very nice, large patio. What's not to like......

Ballydoyle is a fun spot to go for dinner or drinks. Live music every Friday and Saturday and a huge list of beer choices. Food is good too! Get the homemade chips.

We were at a concert at the Paramount Theater and needed a 'quick bite' before the show started, but needed it to be kid-friendly. The valet at the theater recommended this restaurant, within easy walking distance. They had a great kids menu, offering 9 choices. We only had appetizers, but they were very good. The service was a bit slow.... More

Tried this on a whim for a quick sandwich. Great place to meet up with friends and have a beer with a sandwich. Great service. Big restaurant that can accomodate large parties too!

Another great meal. It was a Saturday evening and while the place was extremely busy the service was still very attentive. We did not have a reservation but were seated almost immediately. Everyone in the group enjoyed the food. For some it was their first time and they thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Had never been here before so tried it on a Sunday. The service was great and so was the food. We all were able to take leftovers home.

She choose to take us to BallyDoyle in Aurora. I was surprised that she was able to make reservations at a pub on Saturday night, but we were down for 7:30 p.m. for... More
