“Great local Irish pub”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

Funny that the Englishman owns the Irish pub. They're screwing us again, lads! So long as the atmosphere and fun of this place doesn't go away, who cares who owns it? Nice place to grab an authentic and fresh Guiness.

“To many flys”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

We stopped in Tommy Nevin's Pub for lunch after touring Northwestern with my wife and two teenage sons before heading to airport on a Sunday afternoon. My sons like all the TV's with all the different NFL games on. That is the only thing we liked about the place. The worst thing about it are the annoying flys. The flys swarm all over you and your food. The sandwiches are okay, I had the "Moby Dick" sandwich which is a small piece of fish on a ciabatta roll. The roll was better than the fish. The waitress forgot my wife's ice tea and disappeared for most of our visit there. I would not go back here nor would I reccomend anyone going here.

“Needing Irish pub food?”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

Decent pub menu. However, it's too dark and rather depressing in there. Our table top (wood) was greasy, even after an extra cleaning. A quite warm beer was delivered. Wait staff was helpful and apologetic. Probably a good place if you want to hang out in the large bar area, have a burger or bangers and mash and play pool. But as a restaurant experience, not for me.
The restaurant area is separated from the bar area. Can hold large groups.
