Nice sports bar. Good food. Pleasant surroundings.

This place is a little hard to find, behind the Jewel-Osco on the way to the AMC movies. The food is simple but good. The hamburgers are nicely done and the steak sandwiches are good. There is nothing fancy here but it is competent bar food in a pleasant atmosphere and the place seems quite clean.

Good watering hole with plenty of tap beers, some micro brews and the old standards. Good pub food and generous appetizers. Lots of room for larger groups.

We decided to have dinner before a movie on a Saturday. The food was really good and service was excellent. I hate ordering Prime Rib out as you either get it under or over cooked. This was fixed just right. The Waitress was very nice and on top of her game. Since this is right next to the AMC Movie... More

Came here for the first time on a Wednesday night with friends and family. My toddler enjoyed his kids chicken and fruit cup and the rest of the table had wraps. They were 100% fresh ingredients including homemade ranch dressing. Such a relief because too many places use "rubbery" processed chicken and frozen tortillas. The french onion soup was also...

Friday night visit for Dinner. Very busy as the Lenten Season is upon us. Service was very fast and efficient. Great bar with many different beer choices. Wife ordered the traditional fish fry and I went with the Meatloaf plate. Fish and Chips were just OK per my wife. Portion was very ample. Meatloaf was a complete disappointment, could not... More

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
