Had lunch on outdoor deck, which is a fun option in addition to large main room and smaller back room. The deck overlooks the Fox River and the Hollywood Casino, a nice view. There also used to be very private "booths" on the west side of the establishment which were also great but those were not available this time.

Seating was quick and waitress was as prompt as she could be. Staffing was a bit light and she covered indoor and outdoor areas. Our group had a variety of salads, boxty and burgers, which were all solid. This was 3rd time at Ballydoyle - I like the atmosphere #1, location #2, and food is #3.

Decent enough food. The huge dining room lacks warmth and ambiance and is very loud. Look for the back rooms and the snugs where it's a little more like an Irish pub. The boxty and burgers are very good.

It is not often that a bar is the size of city block. The location and set up is really cool. However the service here is unacceptable. Whoever runs this place must make a ton of money because this bar has been grossly understaffed for years. A new low at lunch on a Saturday when tables were filled with dirty dishes. Saw multiple groups of people moving dirty dishes from one table to another just to have a place to sit. That is disgusting.

Our family went to Ballydoyle's Sunday night and 30 minutes after getting our drinks were still waiting to have our order taken. The waiter thought he should serve all his tables drinks at one time and then take all the orders at the same time. We and a couple other tables ended up leaving and going somewhere else. Generally the food is very good but can't say the same about their service.
