Timothy O Tooles has a nice atmosphere along many dining choices for everyone. A few in our group were vegetarian and vegan and there were plenty of interesting offerings. The service was a little stressful like they could use more hands.. with the bartender taking care of us, but overall a good experience. Did I mention many choices of beer?... More

This was our first visit and it was amazing! While the service was somewhat slow the food and the atmosphere more than made up for it. This is the place you need to stop for dinner and drinks if you're wanting to take in a sporting event. There are so many TVs and the food is amazing. You MUST try... More

We stop here often when in the location of Gurnee. Nice interior, good beer selection and Love their Reuben. We shared a combination appetizer this stop and enjoyed wings, Irish nachos and the lightest tasting pretzel with delicious beer cheese dip. Good service too!

There was an outstanding beer selection with many, many Irish choices. The food was your basic pub grub with little of it Irish. The place was well appointed but it was on the noisy side and had way too many TVs for an Irish pub. Maybe it's an Irish sports bar.

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 pub...), but is way better than an... 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
