The service was superior, just like the angus beef and the Guinness beer. The atmosphere was very pleasant.

We had a great late lunch at this pub on a Saturday and it was very pleasant. I had a delicious burger (with onions and mushrooms) while my friend had a fish sandwich. We both were delighted. The service was attentive and not pushy. I would strongly recommend it.

I was told about this place by my hotel concierge and figured we would give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised by the huge selection of craft beers and reasonably priced meals. I would give this one a thumbs up.

While on our most recent visit to Chicago, we stopped off at Timothy O'Toole's to check out their beer selection. We ended up trying the dogs and Chicago Fire burger. The burger was fantastic. The flavors blended perfectly. It is spicy, but the side of slaw helped to cool it down. This is a great bar to catch a game,... More

While my fish and chips was too breaded and too much, my husband loved his Reuben! The fries were big and kind of tasteless. We went to lunch during a respite from visiting at Northwestern Hospital. I am sure it is a noisy and fun place at night. The service was good and friendly.

It's a good option for hospital staff, because it is close by. It's a great bar, nothing absolutely astounding about it, but a great bar none the less

We popped in late in the evening to catch a quick bite. The service was fast, if not particularly friendly. The hostess was a bit rude, and we didn't feel as welcome as we did the first time we visited a couple of years ago. Still good food, but not sure we'll be back...unless it's freezing cold and we are... More

Have been and reviewed many times as this is one of our favorite sports bars in Chicago. Food and service are always good. They have a zillion tv's and pool tables. Always a fun atmosphere whether you're at one of many bar seats or at a table.
