One of favorite places to go for a Friday "no cooking night". Groupon often makes it better. We love the fish and chips and the corned beef is authentic. We enjoy the atmosphere, the staff is always friendly and efficient. Of course it's a great place to have a pint.

We'd been here in the past (3-4 years ago or so) and enjoyed it but we came again recently and were disappointed. The place wasn't even crowded and it took a long time to order, for drinks to arrive, and to reorder drinks. My husband asked the waitress what a particular drink was and she replied by simply saying the... More

Great place to spend St Patricks night wonderful live band playing traditional Irish music. Great location only 10 minutes from O'Hare. City atmosphere. Lots of nightlife on this busy city street.

We had lunch on St. Patrick's Day at this Irish restaurant and both adored the Potato Leek Soup which is so good it's a reason to trek to The Glen. Also good selection of draft Irish beers. Noisy! And I saw an attractive room for a private event for about 10, if you are in the market.

This pub used to be right next to Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg. We went to that location a couple of times and our opinion of the food was that it was OK. The decor in the newish Edison Park location looks great but the food is about the same - just OK. My wife had the Irish stew and I... More

Food is wonderful and the bar has live entertainment on weekends. A family tradition to bring in Ireland New years there

Nice little Irish pub in Chicago. They pour a proper pint of Guinness and make a decent black and tan as well. Often have sports on the television. The one complaint I have is that when they have a live band it is always too loud, you end up yelling at the top of your lungs just to be heard... More

The location is great and the food is pretty good, but it's not anything that special. I love the atmosphere and outdoor seating, though.
