We went here with friends on a Saturday night. They do not take reservations. We got there about 6:45 and they had about a 30 minute wait, so we found seats at the bar to make the wait go by. The Whiskey selection was outstanding. Irish Whiskey's were predominant of course, but also the selection of Scotch was superb. I opted for a beer instead. I had a Black and Tan, which was great. We had to wait a total of 31 minutes for our table. We were lucky and got a booth that was relatively quiet. Two of us started with the Tomato Basil Soup. The soup was fantastic, creamy and rich the way it should be. It could be a meal by itself. Then all four of us got the Grilled Cheese Sandwich. It was absolutely the Best Grilled Cheese Sandwich ever. The blend of cheeses with the candied bacon and shallots was unbelievably good. The sandwich was so big three out of four of us could not finish it, and took it home. The sides were good also from the wild rice to the sweet potato fries.
The waiter was very good, even though it too a while to get the food. As far as the ambiance, we all loved the look of this lovely Irish Pub.
For a fun lively Saturday Night Meal with friends, this is a great Andersonville place to go.

We stopped in on a Sunday night around 5 pm and were able to get a booth for our party of 6. We ordered a variety of appetizers and multiple rounds of drinks and held the table for over 4 hours. The food was great and the staff’s service and attitude throughout was wonderful. We also want to give an extra shout out to Jesse and Sahara who were both fabulous.

After getting delayed at an event until almost 11pm on a Friday night, my friends and I were absolutely starving. I couldn't have been more happy when we began calling around and found out that Lady Gregory's kitchen was open until midnight. Yes, it was a limited, late night menu, but the options were perfect. I had a cheeseburger with Irish bacon and cheddar and it was very tasty. I particularly loved the fresh pickles and was brought a small bowl of extras by the waitress, who was absolutely lovely. This is a big establishment and the beer/wine menu was quite extensive, although none of our group indulged in a cocktail. The music was slightly loud, which I would expect when you have a full house, but at that time there were only two other tables on our side of the restaurant occupied and it would have been nice to have had the volume a little lower. The decor was unique; we noticed that old doors had been used to make a small wall to separate the sides of the restaurant. It is overall a very cosy place and if in the area I'd definitely go back.

Wonderful cheese curds! Love the sweet potato fries with the syrup. Service was excellent. Went above and beyond to make sure our group was doing good. It was a little loud in there but it could have just been the night we were there. Will return for sure

We have dined at Lady Gregory's 5 or 6 times when visiting our Chicago family. Everything on the menu is delicious. Even a wine drinker can find a great glass to accompany dinner, while this bar obviously specializes in whiskeys & beer.
