Stopped in for a late evening drink and snack. We enjoyed the friendly bartender and can imagine how much fun this place would be during the school year. Be sure to check out the outside bar in the back if the weather is nice!

I did not have any food here, but the drinks were good. It is a college bar, and the bartender was a good one.

service was good but was a typically cheap college bar. Not super clean and overrun with college kids chugging bud lites and cheap booze

During the week Kilroy's has unbelievably inexpensive lunch specials. Where else can you get a burger and soup for $2? Service and food was great.
