Tim was our waiter and we visited two days in a row - he knew our drink orders and was a great server. He would check-in frequently, but it wasn't over the top. Great food, fun atmosphere to watch a game. The homemade house vodka is delicious!

Exhausted after a full day's sightseeing, we were glad to stumble upon this pub. It was day after Thanksgiving so there was a good crowd of people there watching the various football games. We just wanted a drink so planted ourselves at the bar and just took in the wonderful atmosphere this place offers. Thanks to Danielle, our server, we... More

We were here on a Friday for lunch. Place was pretty busy. It's very much a sports pub and is loud with numerous TVs playing a. variety of games. Lots of craft beers on draft. The seasonal beer was very good and only $5.50/pint. We shared the pulled pork nachos and the pretzel trio. Nachos were a huge portion and... More

We were there for a beer release event and it was crowded but not too crowded. Our server, while busy, was attentive to our group. The food was really good for "bar food" as my burger was delicious and my wife's wings were good. She really enjoyed the truffle fries. We had a bit of an issue with being served... More

Had a great time watching the Michigan Ohio game. Place was hopping but with so many TVs you never missed a down. The food is outstanding and with such a huge list of beers on tap we could have stayed here all day. Try the little Timmy and the pretzels they are outstanding.

Popped in to watch football one Sunday at the beginning of November. Host was very accommodating seating us in the appropriate section for the game we wanted to watch. Abs the service in general was very good. Waitress was attentive without being overly so. Food was good and there is a large selection of beers on tap. There is plenty... More

Right after checking-in at the W Lakeshore, we walked down to Timothy O'Toole's to meet friends who arrived earlier. The beers were great and the burger was stellar. I'd recommend this joint if you're looking for a cool pub with good food.

Came in on a very busy day. The Festival of Lights parade was that day so we knew all the good places would have a wait so we were fine waiting a few minutes for a table. The waitress was very nice and quick with her service. There were 5 of us and she even offered us to move to... More

Call it the Garden Level, call it underground - just don't call me late for lunch at TOT's! The PERFECT Guinness pour followed by a delicious Streeterville burger (swiss, mushrooms, grilled onion) and Tater Tot's (who doesn't like tater tots!) was the perfect lunch on a cold November afternoon. My bartender (they were so busy at 100pm I had to... More

Staying in Streeterville

Neighborhood Profile
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
