We have stopped here before, and knowing we were going to arrive into town late, we went back knowing we would get good food, a great selection of cold beer and our game would be on one of the 80 TV's. We were not disappointed and the host found the game we wanted to watch for us. Families are welcome,... More

My wife and I just wanted a few beers on a very warm day and this place has quite a selection, even on draft. Their wings are a good size and cooked perfectly, but wish I could've tasted the garlic and ginger flavor a little more. Otherwise, it was a perfect spot. One slight drawback was the "bouncer" asking for... More

Pretty good on speed and service the night we went. The Chicago beef was really good. Fish and chips were also good. I would recommend for a normal night on the way somewhere or for a last minute dinner.

Our family passed this place on the way to the hotel so thought we'd give it a try because we like to eat local when out of town. It was awesome! We had tater tots poutine, pretzels with three sauces, Reuben egg rolls, chicken wings with maple bourbon bbq sauce, chicken tenders and pork tacos. It was all very good... More

We came here for an early drink and were quite pleased. Terrific beer selection and very good appetizers. We had baked goat cheese and reuben egg rolls; both were very good. It was quite crowded (Friday afternoon) but we were sat and waited on promptly. It's kind of noisy but that's the sign of a good place no?

We went here for a night before party for the American Outlaws. Food was decent pub grub. At first they weren't going to let our young children into the party, but eventually the manager understood. Overall it was ok.

My family tried O'Toole's after a long day of relaxation. We were starving, so ordered an appetizer - the nachos. We also ordered regular meals. Every single thing was great tasting and the portions were very large. The waiter was friendly and helpful. Everything was just right and we would return. The atmosphere was laid back and welcoming.

This is a typical PUB! With great vibes. Its in a basement and they assure you're over age in order to get in after certain times (which is great to keep away underage drinkers). The food doesn't take that long to come out and its pretty good for your typical bar food. Most importantly the servers are nice and you... 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.
