Great place!

The food is excellent, many choices for group events, good music venue, plus outdoor seating on the Fox River! What more could you ask for? PLUS great downtown Aurora location

We just had our daughter's wedding reception here and it was really very nice! The event coordinator, Joanne, was super helpful throughout the entire planning process. The food was delicious and the room we had the reception in was perfect for our 65 guests. We had two servers to serve our guests drinks and they did a fantastic job. Our... More

Stopped here for lunch before a play. My wife and I both had Cheeseburgers and fries. They came out quickly and were cooked just the way we wanted them. The bun was nicely toasted and the burger juicy and flavorful. I had a Guinness to start and it was the perfect pour. Just the right amount of foam on the... More

This place has the best corned beef and cabbage I've ever tasted. And their selection of beers and whiskeys are amazing also. Try the blackberry. It's a blend of Guinness and Berryweis.

I've been several times, so you know I like them. They offer better variety than most places and good food. I usually get the rueben, which is nicely overstuffed and delicious.

The location is convenient. There is quite a bit of wood on the walls and stage which gives it a nice atmosphere. I had buffalo chicken sandwich and it was good and it reminded me of Bennigan's. A good place before or after a show at the Paramount.

Enjoyed sandwiches and couple pints on a Sunday evening. The place was quiet but looked like it would be a great time with a band on stage. Everyone enjoyed their food. Started with chips that were seasoned perfectly, sweet potato bites, awesome. Four different sandwiches ordered and all were tasty. Our waiter, Jason, was very friendly and made some great... More
