Great Atmosphere

Love this pub. Very lively and great people. I go every-time I am in Chicago. Irish food and Peroni beer. Can't beat it for an upbeat happy hour.

I stayed at adjacent hotel for business and this pub provides me with excellent breakfast and dinner. Service is always on spot, friendly and welcoming. As a female business traveler, I felt at ease in this pub. The food is good too, I had the butter chicken which is excellent for dinner two nights in a row.

We have eaten/drank here several times when we stayed at Club Quarters. The service is very good! The food is very tasty, and the drinks are delicious! I love the Crabbie Raspberry Ginger Beer. Very nice restaurant/bar.

With so many chain feeling Irish places in the US, this one does it right and has that true authentic feel. From a wide selection of British brews to some beautifully prepared meals this is definately a recommended spot in the windy city.

We stopped here on a day trip into the city. Very nice environment and my husband and I may have liked sitting at the bar in the evening but we were there for lunch with our kids (11) and (13). Service was almost non-existent. Took forever to take or order then again get our food. My daughter ordered BBQ sauce... More

Elephant & Castle serves really good pub food--as well as good breakfasts and decent wines by the glass. It can get really noisy at dinner time/happy hour but that just adds to the vibe. I've had the powerhouse breakfast (egg whites, fruit, turkey sausage) and the steak salad recently--both delicious. Service is excellent and friendly--and the prices won't break the... More

I miss a good pub, so I had to stop in for a pint! Great atmosphere and friendly staff. The beer options were good and the fish and chips were perfect!

We went here after a show at the Goodman Theater. It's a very central location and easy to find. We were excited for a legit British pub experience and were disappointed. The place is cozy and the atmosphere is great -- we sat in a booth near the fire place. But the food was so, so, so disappointing. One of... More

I visit Elephant & Castle during December with Family. I have always had the best of food and drink: while being served by the friendly wait staff; who listen before giving you their recommendations, which are usually spot on for each person.

Stopped in Elephant & Castle after going to a Chicago Bulls game. Since it was in our hotel, we were very happy to find it open. Service was nice. Food was pretty good. We actually ordered the "Slum Dog" which is a deep fried panko crusted sausage; wrapped in a pita with India spices. Different, but not too bad. Since... More

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
