Typical college bar...which is not all bad

It's a college bar....plain and simple. Cheap drinks, not extremely clean, great service! I went just after dinner time but before college time, so it was not crowded and plenty of sitting. Lots of TVs to watch sports, lots of great people watching but definitely not a family place. I will... read more

I wanted to say a big yes but left feeling dirtier than when I entered. It's obnoxious. It takes forever to get a drink and the food isn't great either. Plus, it seems to be the local idiot hangout. Don't plan on using the bathrooms here because they are disgusting. Also, the drinks seem watered down. I would recommend this... More

I wanted to like this bar. It is one of the more regularly busy bars, especially during the summer. They have cheap drinks, it could be good. However, it is not. The first thing is there is virtually no atmosphere here. First, the music, which is one or two notches too loud to be able to converse, is inescapable. This... More

Anytime of day or evening, a great bar. On game day, make sure you get there before 8:30 am to join the throngs and get in.

In my mind, Kilroy's was alot better than it is today. Used to be cozy and cool, now just a big bar with a bunch of tv's, and the Long Island Iced Teas are nowhere as good as they used to be! Oh well!

Kilroy's has a good deal on chicken quesadilla's - half order is plenty! Really good iced tea. Servers are nice and efficient.

The redeeming quality of this place is two dollar Tuesdays. They offer two dollar top shelf liquor, beers, burgers, breadsticks, everything is two dollars. Gear up for that! However, the place becomes a swimming madhouse of fluid swapping turbo-douchers after dark.

Go here if you want to relive your glory days of no responsibilities and bad choices (not that I ever made any). Tuesdays and Thursdays are the nights to go, and make sure you get there early on Thursdays to claim the t-shirt of the week. Drinks are cheap, and everywhere, like on the floor where the drunk people spill... More

My family stopped in here after graduation for a few pitchers. Two breadsticks came with each pitcher. We also ended up ordering quesedillas which were only $3. The waitress was attentive and the location in downtown Bloomington was perfect.

Kilroy's was recently remodeled, so now patrons can sit inside by the open windows and enjoy the best of inside and outdoor dining at the same time--a lot of fun during the summer months. Every Tuesday during lunch there is a different local group sharing their music in the park across the street, so Kilroys lunchers can enjoy free entertainment... More
