My husband and I have eaten here every December for the last few years before seeing a holiday comedy show nearby.

We love the food selection here, especially the... More

Great atmosphere at this historic, large Irish pub on a Friday fun day!!! First, the friendly bartender remembered us from our prior visit this summer and she was so welcoming and offered great service!! Second, the food was hearty and perfect for a cold winter night. The added fun was the band that started after our dinner and it rocked... More

We ordered 4 different entrees. All of the food was just okay--nothing really fabulous. It's a fun and interesting restaurant atmosphere, but it was pretty dead on a Sunday evening.

Love the fact there is a running countdown timer until the next st patties day. We loved the food. I had beef stroganoff which is different then any I had before. The mashed potatoes were amazing. Craving it right now actually. We were dining there before going to the haunted house below. There was live music which was nice in... More

The Ballydoyle is a great place to go for food and or drinks while you are in Aurora. They have many selections of different beers to choose from. The atmosphere is really unique. The outside beer garden overlooks the Fox river and is fantastic to sit at and watch the activities along the river.
