Went there on a Friday night. Everything on the menu sounded good. I had a hamburger with Irish cheese. My lady friend had a sandwich. Both were very good. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Absolutely love this place. If I am having trouble deciding where to go this is the place we ultimately choose. Fried green beans, good beer selection and a wonderfully huge plate of corned beef and cabbage.

We really enjoy Peggy Kinane's. It has really great Irish food. The only thing is - don't sit too close to the band. It is very loud. A fun place to dance, also.

We attended a graduation party on Saturday at this restaurant. The food was good and the drinks were okay. It was loud but everyone seemed to enjoy.

Peggy Kinnane's has a good menu with good variety. I often take guests here because I know everyone will be able to find something they like and I know the food served will be delicious. The serve staff is above average - friendly, informative, eager to offer assistance but never crowd you. I've also found it to be a good... More

Super family friendly (especially for St Patty's Day with Irish dancers, face painting, etc!) And a place we visit again and again. Peggy's has a large menu, but some of our faves are the reuben sandwich or anything with their homemade corned beef, Jameson chicken, patty melt and the shepherd's pie. Yummy Bloody Mary's and beer on tap like Smithwick's... More

Love this resturant's Irish vib. But the best part is all the great food options! All the Irish options are tremendous but there many American options as well. Great food, great ambience.

Peggy’s has been around for the better part of 15 or more years. It is perfectly situated on Vail Ave in downtown Arlington Heights. It is billed as an “Irish Pub” and you can certainly make it that, but I have always seen it as being 1/3 bar and 2/3 restaurant. Nothing wrong with that at all. I don’t think... More

We went there with coworkers after dinner. They have a great bar area to hang out and relax. The interior design is very nice. All of the staff was very nice and helpful.

We came on a friday night. Granted busy time. It took FOREVER to get our food after we ordered. Never got water refill. My patty melt wad pathetic. Two pieces of bread. Not enough cheese to cover the burger. And a handful of fries. Very disappointed.
