Loved this place. Went to lunch with my daughter while visiting her at IWU. Lobster roll was amazing. Service was great, ambiance was nice and bathroom was clean.

I had a super fresh side salad they. Get local greens! The club is ginormous and awesome on the grilles sourdough. I traded cheddar for swiss. Yum! 5 star delish. My husband had a Reuben it was ok he likes soft bread vs. Toasted. Then...there was the chocolate bomb! Worth the drive if you love chocolate inside hard shell is a chocolate mousse and a creamy white ganesh. Draped with swirls of chocolate and white cream. I give this dessert a 10!More

The wait staff was fine, as was the food. However, there was next to no masking inside on the part of the staff (as of 4/27/22).

More than a pub. At least a gastropub. The cinnamon chipotle ribs were tender and the sauce was unique. Nice wine selection too. We also enjoyed the special gumbo and the Buffalo shrimp salad. Our waitress (Randi??) was friendly and timely with service. She even...relit our candle when it went out. I’ll be back when I’m in the Bloomington area again.More

We had lunch during the week to celebrate a birthday. Jacob was our waiter and couldn't have been nicer! He did a great job, and we enjoyed the food.

Worth the detour off interstate. We loved the old authentic atmosphere. The staff was friendly, attentive and fast! We had chicken Cobb salad and shrimp Greek salad...both delicious and large for $12. Full bar. Plenty of free street parking around the area...safe area. Historic downtown...Bloomington.More

Food was delish! This is the first restaurant I have been too that was completely aware and respectful of following the health department rules. Everything was served in takeout containers and seating was still outside and spaced 6 feet apart. We will be back. The...food and drinks were great!!More

This is the only restaurant in the Bloomington area that Trip Advisor said was Covid safe, and it was. All the help wore mask, the utensil were individually wrap, change table coverings after every seating, had to scan menu with phone. Love it. The food...was also good and the service great. Would go again.More

A very quaint little Irish pub. Excellent food and great service. The best place to get a Cuban sandwich.

This place is a gem! Amazing salad dressing, pork tenderloin was perfect. She had spicy pasta with scallops and shrimp, to die for! Service was excellent in a very crowded night, and the local beers are a must-try!

We were traveling from Springfield, IL to visit family north and decided to stop in Bloomington-Normal for lunch. Searched Trip Advisor and decided to try Rosie's. Great choice! My buffalo shrimp ceasar salad was loaded with shrimp and was perfectly seasoned for me, dry and...not too spicy. Almost had a shrimp per bite! My husband had the club sandwich and said everything about it was good...the roll, the bacon, and lots of meat. Enjoyed the atmosphere of the old building and service was great.More

The food at Rosie's was excellent and priced very reasonably. I was expecting the general bar food when I went, but that is not it at all, Great variety and selection of unique dishes including delicious salads. Service was very good.
