Description: Voted "Best Irish Pub" 4 years running! Come to Lincoln Park for our amazing food, drink and brunch. The grub at Galway Arms is authentic, fresh and delicious! Galway was carved out of two 90-year-old buildings on Clark Street, and the lived-in, weathered feel remains. With its two fireplaces, friendly staff and amazing dishes this is a great place to grab dinner and a beer. Come in to Galway Arms today!

Perhaps the most welcoming place I visited in Chicago. The Irish staff here know the true meaning of hospitality, and make one feel more than welcome. Food is a level above what you might expect to find in this area; alongside the Irish bar staples, you will find plenty of restaurant-quality dishes on the menu. On the Sunday night we visited, musicians were playing traditional Irish tunes, and the place was totally full. I highly reommend you visit Galway Arms next time you are in the vicinity...you will not be dissapointed

We stopped in at 4 and sat outside for a drink after a long day of sightseeing. The beer was cold and the fish and chips were great. My husband and I watched soccer on the TV and kids (8 and 10) played card games and connect 4 which were in the pub. Great place!

Ordered corn beef & cabbage and was great portions (3 large pieces of tender, great tasting corn beef). Wife ordered fish & chips...same thing, good portions. Teenage kids ordered burger, mentioned large beef patty, but not enough bacon. Sat inside, which has a pub atmosphere. Outside seating is spacious. Would recommend!
