High energy, packed place. Great music in background. I loved the ambiance, the decor and especially the pictures on the walls. One can sit outside and inside, I liked inside more. Very recommended.

My wife and I just stopped in for beer and appetizers. The nachos and potato skins were very good. We added chicken to the nachos. Not a lot of beers on tap, but adequate. We sat outside on a beautiful day. The location is perfect for people watching. Not a lot of room inside, in my opinion. Some TV's but... More

We stumbled upon this pub as we were desperately looking for a bar to watch the ISU vs UConn basketball game, on a Friday night in downtown Chicago. The place was packed, but they set up a quick table for us near a TV. The clam chowder was the best I've ever tasted and the chicken nachos were very tasty.

Ended up here after another bar closed at 1 am, and we weren't done celebrating my friend's birthday yet! This bar is in the middle of the Viagra Triangle, but it's pleasantly casual, unpretentious, and relatively inexpensive. And they serve food late! At 2 am we were told there was an hour wait for a table. (what??) but somehow we... More

Enjoyed a quick dinner at the bar. Bartender was friendly and quick. The shepards pie was hot and tasty. Loved the crusty potatoes. Beer was cold. Watched a little hockey. Nice mix of relaxed and upscale.

Friends had recommended this place which apparently has a late kitchen and so is a favorite of people looking for late night meals when many kitchens are closed. I like Irish pub food but this was decidedly average stuff. It is a noisy dark place. From where we sat the clientele looked like sweet young things being pursued by older... More

Stopped in to grab a few pints and catch up on the Olympics action before dinner. It was pretty much what I had expected - and hoped it would be, casual, busy and charming. Every table was occupied, cold beer was flowing, laughter and conversations were happening rapid fire - and everyone was smiling. It can definitely get cramped in... More

We ate here as we could not get into any other restaurant in the area due to the fact it was Friday night. The atmosphere is what you'd expect, a loud bar. We had the corned beef Reuben. Nothing special. Corned beef was dry an not flavorful. Iced tea tasted like it was from a powder mix. Fries were average.... More
