Still a great pub.

Have gone to Timothy O'Toole's every time we are in the area (approximately 3 times a year). It's one of our local favorites. Great beer selection & good food. It's always pretty crowded at dinner time, but has 2 bar areas with plenty of tv's. It's not a 5-star dining experience (it's a... read more

Was in town for a family reunion and wanted to taste something local. Went here for lunch and ordered the brisket sandwich. It was just ok nothing special. My son ordered the nachos and I have had a whole lot better. Because it was a bar I was just expecting the food to taste a lot better. The atmosphere was... More

Fantastic service, great food and drinks. Good for kids as well with nice kids menu. A little pricey but really a nice dinner out.

We had the chicken wings that were reasonably priced but my Bloody Mary was no bigger than a coffee cup and was very pricy and I must say, it didn't taste the way that they make them up in northern Wisconsin. This was double the price and only had a celery stick and olive as garnish.

We stopped by this wonderful pub on our way to the hotel for a drink and ended up staying for two plus a snack. We loved that we could sample several of their drafts but were disappointed to find out that several of the drafts were no longer available and the dessert we ordered ran out. Their special wings that... More

We have eaten at this restaurant more than once. The atmosphere is laid back and it's a fun place to visit with friends. The staff is friendly and the service is good. We enjoyed the food and it is definitely on our list when we're looking to go out for lunch or dinner.

After a long day of amusement rides across the street headed for a meal to avoid outrageous park food prices. Initially i was told a 15-20 minute wait. We were seated in 5 minutes. They have kiddie cocktails for 1.50$ and 4 or 5 flavors. We got the smokehouse platter for 25$ ( ribs, brisket, sausage) served with slaw and... More

Been here a couple of times and the food is ok and the service is always good but not on the top of my list. I don't mind meeting people here but don't think I would ever suggest it.

Love going here with friends or family. The bar gets crowded at times, but there's usually room in the restaurant. Great beer selection! Good service.
