“Great spot to grab a bite while at the Hilton”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013 via mobile

I was staying at the Hilton for a downtown seminar and got in early and missed lunch. Walked down to Kitty O'Sheas which is on the south end of the Hilton's first floor. Nice looking place and great location.

The crowd was light at 5:30 so I got a table quickly.

Unlike other reviews, I had a server stop by quickly. I had a beer and fish and chips for $26 with tip. Food was good and hot. Crowd noise level was not bad.

Service was quick for beer and food and server checked back a few times. Not much in the way of TV so if you are looking for a game, I would head somewhere else. Lots of business types when I was there, but it was not late yet.

I would go back.

“Buzzing Irish Bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013

This Irish bar is just across the street from the Essex Inn where we were staying so it became our 'last stop' most evenings. They had an Irish artist/band on every night but quite honestly,
the noise of the customers all talking at once seemed to drown the artists out. Didn't spoil our enjoyment of the Harp Lager ! the staff were all very pleasant and efficient.

“Great for a quick bite to eat!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

Must have the pretzels and cheese dip. We stopped in twice to have this delicious snack. Fun, lively atmosphere. Great location to celebrate the completion of the Chicago Marathon!

“Decent Place to Grab A Bite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

This is a bar and grill type of establishment, so it's not ideal if you want a nice, quiet family atmosphere. Wasn't a guest at the Hilton, but was hungry after the Bears game, so popped in to grabe a bite. No greeter, you seat yourself. Had to wait five minutes for a server, but once served, food and drinks came quickly. Food hot and quite good. Friendly server. TVs everywhere to watch games or whatever. Seating could be better. Would eat there again.
