Love this place. I had the Linguini in a tomato basil sauce. It was to die for. Service was great and you get a good portion of food with your order.

My husband and I were in Chicago for long weekend and stopped in her on our way back from a long day of sightseeing. It is a very comfortable place with beautiful stained glass over the bar. We just wanted a quick beer and a snack and they had a nice beer selection. We split a bowl of soup and... More

Charming with it's decor. Staff was pleasant. Food was exquisite! I am still craving the dessert. Definitely get the brownie. My only dislike was that the table and seating arrangements are slightly cramped.

We visited a few times during our stay, as our hotel was next door. A few times for drinks and once to eat. Good selection of ales and whisky. The food was good. The staff were friendly and service was very good. The type of pub where people can go and someone will talk to you.

Really nice little bar / eatery. I had two meals here with some beer while staying in Chicago. Food was great and the staff were lovely. Would certainly go back

If you need a not-so-quick bite but want to sit down and have a beer this is a convenient location if you're shopping the Michigan/State area but the food is sub-par. Don't fall for the "English pub" menu. It's all pretty standard with a couple of "British" ingredients added for novelty. Skip it and head to some of the other... More

Great lunch spot, great after work, and great for late night. Always had good food there - from the fish-n-chips, to the Yorkshire pudding stuffed with tender beef and covered with gravy, to the fried pickles....and don't forget the beer! Great place to meet up with friends, have lunch or happy hour with coworkers, or grab a late-night snack.

Visited the Elephant and Castle twice during two seperate stays in Chicago. Service is always fast and friendly and the food delicious and very reasonably priced. I had the Yorkshire pudding as it was the closest thing I could find to an English roast dinner while over there. My husband had a curry and said it was delicious. There is... More
