This wonderful Irish pub was located right across the street from our hotel. After window shopping on Michigan Ave., and looking at the river that had been dyed green this was a must to stop at. They had 48 beers on tap along with the expected green beer along with Irish Coffees not to mention... read more

A group of us went here mainly for the beer selection, but came away impressed with the food and friendly wait staff. They have a large variety of beers on tap, so that is an obvious draw is you enjoy a brew. But unlike another, perhaps more famous, beer hall in the same area, the food is quite good and... More

I was recently in Chicago on business and happened upon this pub. I liked it enough that I ate there twice during my trip. It is a great place to eat and they have a great selection of beers both on tap and bottled. I really enjoyed the fish and chips and the Chicago style hot dogs I had. I... More

We arrived a little early to Chicago and could not check into our rooms, so the hotel recommended Timmy O'Tooles and it was awesome! We were in town for a bachelor party, so the beer was flowing fast! Not to mention that over 70 TV's for the NCAA tournament games. Our server, Jessica was great!

We went there after a search on Tripadvisor (as usual) and because the location was right for us. We read the critiques afterwards. I have to say that we were a bit disapointed compared to what we read about it. The atmosphere is very nice, very Pub, the drink are ok and served quickly and the staff was friendly, but... More

The first beer I picked off their extensive menu was out, so I went to Plan B. Food came out quick, could've used some new oil in their deep fryer but that is the only complaint. Attentive wait staff, fun atmosphere, and plenty of tv's.

The bar is cool and has all the sports on TVs. Typical decent bar food. The comedy is what you should go for. 9pm on Wednesdays is amazing and it made my face hurt.

We stopped in one evening for dinner and drinks, both of which were great values. We went back 2 days later to take in the St Patrick's festivities. We had a blast!! Staff was great, food was great and the beer was cold.

What can i say? We stumbled upon Timothy o'toole's pub when recommended a stop by a salesperson at the store down the road. We ended up visiting 2 times in 2 days because we liked it that much. There was so much choice for beer, the buffalo wings were fantastic (we never did have any other foods) and the service... More

We always come here for late great food and drinks!! It's a underground sports bar with lots of tvs, pool tables and great specials. They have great appetizers, we have tried about every app and have never been dissappointed. The bartenders are always nice, even when they are slam packed and we have always had great service. Definitely check out... More
