Tasty Fish & Chips

Ate here for the first time and ordered the fish & chips. They were very tasty and well presented. They have many craft beers available on tap including several IPA's. The service was great and the prices were very reasonable. We will definitely return.

Probably as good as it will get drinking in Brookfield. Bartenders are always nice with smiles, and cocktails are also very well made. But the main reason I go there is for the sitting area outside, it's very big and nicely spread out! I love going there with some friends, enjoying the night weather, and having a drink.

My Husband and I took our two kids (2 & 5) here after a day out at the Brookfield Zoo. The atmosphere was nice and relaxed so we didn't feel weird about bringing our kids into a bar. A big plus was that they had kids menus and crayons to keep the kids occupied. We were seated promptly, but it... More

I had a burger made just as requested - it was huge & delicious. Huge variety of brews & a great atmosphere with old photos & classic signs from all over. Interesting place & a fun crowd that's not overbearing.

I love this place and miss it dearly. Have only gone back a few times since leaving Brookfield but I had many great memories here, the kind that you can't remember. The do this amazing thing with their guiness, they draw shamrocks in the foam or hearts if you go on valentines day. What a cool trick. They have great... More

Great atmosphere. Food is great - they have some authentic Irish food. Fish and chips and Irish Stew are delicious.

Irish Times is right next to the Brookfield Metra stop. My first visit was a few weeks ago for dinner with some friends. The fish & chips, Guinness, Bass and Harp were excellent. The Chicken Curry looked excellent. Additionally the service and atmosphere were great as well. The Pub has a real Irish feel, especially the cottage out back, and... More

I enjoyed my visit to Irish Times greatly--it's set up as a traditional pub, and has the things I deem necessary to qualify: Guinness on tap, and Red Breast whiskey! My friends and I ate lunch there, and the fish and chips I had were excellent. I'd go back here in a moment.

I usually read reviews before I go to a new restaurant but in this case I didnot do so. I do not understand the great reviews of this restaurant. I was not impress. I joined my friends late (45 minutes) and they had already eaten. That is OK but the server would not let us get a separate check as... More

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 our meal at the... More
