Good food, horrible service

We went here during mid-afternoon and it wasn't busy. To start with, service was EXTREMELY slow. And we just aren't sure why. It seemed like our waitress spent alot of time out of sight. It never got any better and we would have really liked to have drink refills sooner than at the very end of... read more

Had lunch at an amazing Irish Pub in Brookfield, Illinois, are likely to return before we leave the Chicago area - - it's that good! Fish & Chips were selling like wildfire at tables around us, do we had to try it. We were not disappointed. Then we saw a plate if mussels go by, swimming in a garlic cream... More

What? Am I dreaming? An Irish Pub with great food? Irish Times has kept pace with modern times. I enjoyed a Boddington's Pub Ale, although I am cultivating a taste for Guinness, as I try just one sip of my husband's beer each time we're out, and its full-bodied goodness is growing on me. The bar is dark wood, there... More

Ok Bar... Nothing special. I had a good time there. It has a little cottage behind the bar where they have gatherings/parties. The wait staff is very nice. Parking can be difficult sometimes.

Beautiful pub, but unless you're a 'regular', don't expect cordial service. Very clique-ish. Didn't feel welcome.

I love everything about this place! It's a dark, intimate pub with great food. Service is always friendly, and fast. If you go in the colder months, try to get a seat by the fireplace. Never a disappointment!
