Solid Wings

Good place to watch a game. Very good bar food, with solid Buffalo Wings. 40 plus Micro beers. Burgers are very good.

What a great sports bar and restaurant. The six of us stopped in here about 7 on a Friday night. We were walked through the packed bar area to a large table in the rear restaurant area. Sports memorabilia and TV's on all the walls. Really energetic and fun. Our waiter was named Zack and he was really a good... More

We visited here yesterday and were extremely disappointed from the beginning. Our waitress, Brynn, was very RUDE. She had a condescending attitude, no patience and acted like she could not be bothered with serving us. There was little attempt to even be remotely polite. The food was decent. My Mediterranean salad was good but my son's cheeseburger was overdone and... More

The food is decent - nothing amazing but good. The place is downstairs so there is no natural light. TVs everywhere, some games, and a large oval bar.

Nice restaurant to spend the afternoon watching baseball and having a few drinks. The menu is varied and the Chicago Dogs are really good. Would definitely go there again when I am in town.

Ate here for lunch recently with my coworkers and what GREAT food! I had the Greek chicken pita meal and it was delicious. Plenty of food for the price too. Great selection of drinks and draft choices. The service was great and all our food came out quickly. Will definitely be back!

We were in Chicago in July 2015, stopping a the Ivy hotel which was less than 100 metres away from Timothy O'Tooles, what a great pub loads of fantastic ales on draughts and bottled,including Three Floyd's Zombie Dust, result! Great atmosphere and decent food at reasonable prices. Well worth a try if your in the area.

This pub was very close to my hotel and had very good trip adviser comments so I decided - like many times, to go with trip adviser. I had the "little Timothy" burger. It was a quarter pound patty served on various buns. I had mine on the pretzel bun. The burger came with lettuce, tomato, red onion, bacon, and... More

We really enjoyed our meal here. Started with a combo appetizer (wings, fries, chicken fingers) and drinks. It was a large serving for just two of us. I had wanted to try the Guinness beef stew but also wanted the bread pudding. Opted for the bread pudding and I was not disappointed!

I have visited this place on numerous occasions during many visits to Chicago. I would catorgize it as a good sports bar. I would probably give it 4 stars if I was ranking it in a sports bar category but being somewhat of a foodie and beer snob, I only gave it 3. Most would say it has a very... More

Staying in Streeterville

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.
