Not what it appears from the outside - give it a go!

Great atmosphere and plenty of choice of beers. Billiard tables and lots of TV screens. From the outside this looks like a tiny pub, but you go downstairs to the basement and it is like a whole new world. Didn't eat here but the food we saw looked ok.

Food and service were great. We really enjoyed the burgers and truffle fries. Nothing fancy but a wonderful experience.

This is the place to watch a game, have a drink or meet with friends for a bite to eat. The bar has very good food and an extensive beer list. There are large TVs so you can catch a game. There is a good mix of local residents and workers and tourists. The bar tenders and wait staff are... More

wow, the beer selection is great. the food was better than i expected ( for bar food ) had a good sandwich and appetizers. It is full house and noisy but a pub is like that if it is popular. Prices were good and service was good. Overall better than expected!

We had a great meal. We brought our kids and they were treated very well. The food was well prepared, the service was good and the atmosphere was really cool. If you need to take a break and grab a beer, this pub is perfect.

Great place, very friendly bartenders and large selection of beers, lots of IPA that I enjoy. The food was great and very reasonable. Big Wings, solid burgers, excellent variety and all very reasonable. I was there two different weekday nights and it was always busy and people active

It's definitely a sports bar/Irish bar. There were tv screens everywhere, but it still maintained a neighborhood pub feel. I had the Shepherd's Pie and it was excellent!

Stayed at doubletree. This is right across the street. Friendly staff, good bar selection. Had a chicken sandwich each time and would get it again. It is not going to win Any awards, but I would definitely go back again. If in the doubletree or in the areA and just want a no fuss bar food meal surrounded by nice... More

Neighborhood Profile
Streeterville
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
