So my family and I moved out of the city and to the burbs several years ago and we miss all the local joints from our old neighborhood. Thankfully we stumbled into Irish Times in downtown Brookfield. Martin-owner of this place is often here and very accommodating. He and his crew make you feel right at home. Food-AMAZING! From daily... More

My all time favorite fish and chips comes from here. They have a good selection of adult beverages. The service is friendly and fast even when they are really busy. I always get the fish and chips so I have no clue how the other menu items taste but they look good when the servers walk by.

We have been there several times & it's always great! From the drinks, appetizers to meals! The fried cheese curds are awesome! Service is great too! Always come here when we're in town!

I have visited Irish Times a lot in the past few years. It is my favorite destination for burgers. The service is evenly paced with a cool crisp attitude. I highly recommend it and there is no question of why it is Brookfield's #1 restaurant. The Black Bean Burger is the best I've ever had.

We've been going to Irish Times for 17 years and it's ALWAYS delish! Was just there with the family for dinner last week and the best part is eating out on the patio during the warmer months of the year. The food is great - try the curry!!! and the cider on tap is cold and refreshing.

Holy YUM YUMS...My two favorite items are the Shepards Pie ( Which they are known for) and the Ruben. Now I am obsessed with rubens and try one wherever they are served, This sandwich to date is my favorite. My husband and I go all the time.

Excellent beef stew, great cold brew as well! Worth checking it out, I'm sure the place is jumping on the weekends!

Great, authentic feeling irish pub with traditional irish fare. Food was cooked to perfection and the beer selection was good. The new chorizo burger isn't quite irish, but I loved it. Great burger.

I love this place. The beer garden is second to none. Cozy and pretty authentically Irish. Try the classic Irish Breakfast or Shepard's Pie....MMmmmm!
