Worse corned beef and cabbage ever for a supposed Irish restaurant. Cold, had to send it back, terrible bartender, had no idea of what she was doing. Tables sat dirty, bar full of dirty glasses, this was 12:30 pm on a Thursday, with about 12 people in the entire place! Save your money and time. Go to a real Irish... More

The most surly and unfriendly bartender I have ever had the displeasure of meeting in my life on Saturday Dec. 6th 2014 this man should not be in the service industry in any capacity

Great food in a great neighborhood. Atmosphere has a fun and exciting vibe. Friendly team of waitresses and bartenders. If your heading to the movie theater which is right around the corner stop in for a bite to eat beforehand or a drink afterwards. Sunday's during the Bears game is a lot of fun and great spread of food during... More

This seems to be our go to place to eat in town, we take friends here, or just go ourselves. Love the atmosphere and the food. We usually get the same waiter, he is great. Love the burgers and sandwiches, their homemade chips are really good. Over the years their menu has changed, we used to always get the oysters... More

Stopped here on our way out to Michigan on a Friday night. Able to be seated right away (table of 3). Service was good - our waitress was super spunky and friendly. Husband had pork chops which was awesome. I had the reuben and it was also very good. Kiddo had the child'e meal cheeseburger - very fresh and just... More

We were on a mini-vacation and decided to get a bite to eat and go to the movies. We found Tom Kelly's online and read the reviews so we thought we'd give it a try. Really excellent food, big portions, and excellent service. Super convenient if you're going to the movies!

First impressions here are very good, a bright, clean atmosphere, and friendly staff. We were on our way to an Irish music concert, so we felt this Irish pub-style place world start the evening off right. The menu has many appealing items, but we decided to share the fried zucchini appetizer followed by the meat loaf entree. The zucchini was... More

Great Irish food. Our waiter had a full area, but took very good care of us. The rueben burger is great, and you need an appetite. The traditional corned beef and cabbage dinner is soo good. All those natural flavours came out and had a dance party on my tongue.
