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!

We arrived on Sun night for dinner. The waitress greeted us promptly and we were seated right away. On some Sunday nights they have live music, check their website for more information. The music was enjoyable and not overly loud. We ordered Shepards pie and a Burger. Our table was near the inner door, which was propped open. Every time someone arrived or left the restaurant, we felt the cold draft. This could be resolved by closing that door. During our meal, what turned out to be a large group started to arrive, by the time we left they had gathered in between all the tables, were standing and having drinks served to them. It seemed like they could have all gathered in the front room which could have been a party room if they needed it for their group. We found free parking on the street nearby. Service and food were good.

Cool pub with a reasonable amount of good European beers. Normal food. Normal attending. To watch a game and have a good time, it does the job.

Took my son and his girlfriend here for dinner and had the best meal. The fish and chips were the best i have every had. The ribs had a really good flavor and was so fresh. Our waitress was very helpful and friendly. We definitely return on our next visit to Chicago.

Very lovely Restaurant and Pub, with live music. I felt like I was in Ireland. (Except the food at the Galway arms is better.)

The shepherds pie was a five star meal recommended by a five star man. Nice couch seating area inside. Conar was a gem. It was like being served by a mix of Tom Hanks and Hugh Jackman.
