This is a good place to grab a quick pint or lunch, service is pretty darn good and the ambiance is on par with the pub feel. Food is typical pub type fare. The staff is very accommodating and super helpful. All in all, a good place to stop if you want a break or to grab a bite. Super... More

Bartender did a fantastic job! Best vodka tonic I've ever had ... Service was great! We got our food right away which was perfect because we were on a time crunch to make it to a show. I had the butter chicken and my husband had the fish and chips and we both thought they were very good. I was... More

Warm and inviting spot for a chilly night in Chicago. Staff were very friendly and made me feel welcome on an otherwise lonely business trip. Good list of English beers as well as local craft brews. Seasonal menu included a fantastic lamb shank. Would definitely go back. Elephant & Castle is a chain, I used to frequent the one in... More

This place is very charming and inviting. It looked cozy on a cold day, so we decided to stop. Expect to wait, but not long. They send you a text to tell you when your table is ready. They have a nice bar in there too if you were just looking to grab drinks and apps. The staff is really... More

In a part of Chicago that seems quite dead at 6 pm on a Saturday night - most everything was shut down. It's not an "Irish pub" - more English (named after the south London neighbourhood). Great to find it - was recommended by a student who we stopped in the street. Good beer selection on tap - combination of... More

This Irish pub is within reasonable walking distance from the Hyatt Regency convention complex, and provides a break from the more standard convention-center type pickings available right by the center. The focus is on beer (and I'm not a drinker), but the food is still quite good and has at least a partial Irish theme to it (though you'll also... More

Excellent place to stay for a lunch or happy hour. There is a good variety of beers and it is near the Skydeck, I found this place occasionally walking to the Millenium park but the tripadvisor seal in front of the restaurant make me and my friends stop for a beer. Great burguers and the fish & chips was really... More

We made the mistake of stopping here for brunch while we waited to check in to our nearby hotel on a Saturday morning. The food was not good. The poached eggs on the benedict were nearly raw, and the potatoes were completely without seasoning and barely cooked. My husband had eggs, toast, bacon and potatoes---while his eggs were cooked, one... More
