WE loved it

We decided to go here after we returned from our night out at dinner and a couple other bars. We were just going to go up to our room, but decided to get one more drink. This place was right across the street from our hotel and it was a pleasent surprise. The food was good and the drinks were... read more

Went in and was told I could sit anywhere only to have wait staff ask me to move because there was a waiting list for tables besides sitting at the bar. For the hour I was there the table I was asked to move from was never occupied. Wings were ok. Ordered spicy wings and they were not so much... More

Tucked in a nice little Streeterville neighborhood, Timothy O'Toole's feels just like the corner pub in a small town. I was at the restaurant by myself but the energy around me felt vibrant. It was the day before Superbowl and everyone was talking teams. The food was good. I had Shepherd's pie, and would opt for pot roast on my... More

Great servers and the food was very good. The fact that they have Ruination on tap didn't hurt at all!

When in downtown Chicago near Michigan Avenue and looking for a relaxing place to have a drink or some good food, try Timothy O'Toole's. The bar tenders are some of the best I've seen. Friendly and watchful keeping your beverage fresh while not bugging you. The food portions are very large so you won't have to go away hungry. It's... More

Met a couple clients here for lunch the other day. Server was friendly and attentive. My corned beef was "just okay"; I have had much better in other Irish establishments It was your typical-style deli corned beef and didn't taste fresh at all. I will say that they give you plenty of it! I was also concerned as to why,... More

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.
