Horrible service 1/4/2010

Don't come here if ur expecting good service more

the worst staff in chicago!! 1/2/2010

there must have been at least 10 people on in this tiny bar. no one does a thing. my date and i sat @ a table and were ignored. when a server rudely informed us the table was only for diners, we told her we were. she then made an audible ""ugh"" and walked away. ten mins later another man brought out menus. i had to repeatedly go to the bar to get my own drinks, from an old brunnette bar tender who was unfriendly and mean. my dates food came ten mins after mine and his fish and chips were burnt. i'll make sure to tell everyone. Pros: great bar environment Cons: rude, unintelligent staff more

Irish, my butt! 9/8/2008

Usually when you go to an Irish restaurant you expect two things, friendly staff and good Irish food. You will get neither at Dublin?s Pub. Now, if you would like non Irish food served by a rude non Irish staff then this is your place. There was a time when you could sit for hours, eat and drink until your hearts content. Last time?and I mean last time I was at Dublin?s Pub they seated someone else at our table before we finished our meal. No kidding! Pros: I don't need to go back. Cons: You can go someplace else. more

Great late night, or just good dinner... 8/17/2008

I've lived above this joint for two years. I order there on a regular basis, and would not complain about the food. I have never had a problem with a dish there in the two years me and my husband have been going there. I used to go there late night for food before going home, or stopping in for one last drink before heading home. The crowd is always a weird show-mostly I think because of the location. I never bat an eye with anything I see there, because it seems that I've seen just about everything. I must say, that I don't go there friday or saturday nights to drink, but it does get quite crowded. Needless to say, I do love this place-and their food for a pub is very good. Pros: good food, fun atmosphere, weird scene Cons: sometimes overcrowded and loud more

NOT GOOD FOOD 7/8/2008

Burger was over cooked, server was short with our table and we were over charged for our dinner. I live less than a block away and there are so many places to eat in chicago I would never go back to this one. more

STAY AWAY... 2/27/2008

I have always enjoyed Dublins until last year on my 30th birthday. I stopped by with my bro and ordered food and a pint of Guinness. The bartender didnt seem to be in the best of moods and asked us to leave?! It was crowded and I dont know about any of you but if Im not wanted somewhere I dont want to be there. So we kindly obliged and left. As I was walking through the door I was pushed down to the street. I got up and noticed 2 Chicago Officers standing there. My brother came out with the food and was not happy. I told him its not a big deal and suggested we leave quickly. Somthing wasnt right. As we are getting in the cab my bro had a words for Chicagos finest. Next thing I know we are both hand cuffed in front of Dublins sitting ""Indian Style"" on the curb. While cuffed the police officers were calling us racial slurs and maced us repeatedly. We were arrested for Trespassing. Chicago PD and Dublins have some sort of relationship. Based off the reviews I have read if you have a problem with their service or food I strongly suggest you keep it to yourself and just leave. Little scary in there. more

zero star was not an option to rate this place 1/31/2008

food and drinks late night. however, rude and physically violent wait staff, too. busboys work as bouncers/boxers at this place looks like. i was physically hurt by one, but not much i could do right now. illegal immigrants are not in the ""sysytem"" unfortunately. what kind of messy place do these place come and act as if they own the country, the city? for god's sake, once again, time to vote republican. more

Great place for a tourist 1/24/2008

A wonderful place to stop in and have a quick bite while wandering through Chicago. As one reviewer already mentioned the corned beef and cabbage was incredibly good and inexpensive (of course it is corned beef and cabbage). Good atmosphere and a great place for people watching. more

BEST NACHOS EVER! 11/20/2006

This little dive on the corner of Maple and State street is the most pleasant surprise of any restaurant I've tried in Chicago! Although this hole-in-the-wall type of bar is nothing fancy to look at, it boasts an awesome menu (which has never failed to please!) For a bar, the service is fast and friendly. The nachos are delicious, as well as their Dublins Salad (which has avocado, cucumber, hearts of palm, artichoke hearts, fresh mozzarella, and chunky tomatos). Portion sizes are large but are so good you won't want to split! Pros: AWESOME FOOD Cons: BUSY BAR, SLIGHT WAIT more

Best Pub... 11/14/2006

This is my favorite bar in Chicago...overall. Good food, good people and good atmosphere. Stays open late, too. I recommend Dublins to and old to Chicago. more

OK to dine in, forget delivery 8/5/2006

This place is in my neighborhood, so it's convenient to grab a something quick, but the people who work there are honestly rude. i am assuming they think they can be, because of the area they are in - they think people will continue to come, which is probably true but if i were them i would considering having at least average costumer service. the food is pretty good for bar food, but my main gribe about dublins is that they should decide whether they deliver or not. i have never heard of a place that decides to deliver when they feel like it, and if by chance say ""yes we are delivering"" - they always forget something, bring you the wrong thing or forget about your order so you need to call back and remind them, then by the time it gets there its cold. major disappointment. So all in all, if you want to grab some good bar food, and people watch, check it out but dont bother on delivery if you live in the neighborhood and want something quick and easy. It turns about to be anything but easy. Either way they should keep up with the times, and get an online menu finally. more

Great Food 7/23/2006

We visit Chicago 2-3 times a year and are always trying a new place to eat. The atmosphere here is casual and fun.. The food is out of this world, for the price I have not had a better meal in Chicago. The location is great to either sit outside or by a window and watch the city go by. The wait staff was very helpful, and gave great advise on what to order. Pros: Location, Service, Food more

Great local spot 12/17/2004

Those knocking Dublin's service need to get over it - it's a busy hustling pub! The food is excellent bar food, they even have a few ""upscale"" choices that won't disappoint. Fantastic place to take in the crowd, have an easy and tasty meal, and a drink. One of my favorite low key spots. Pros: Great bar food, Great people watching more

LateNight Eats 9/21/2004

Great for Late Night Eats. Great Corn Beef Sandwiches, Seafood, and Tacos. Pros: Excellent Food, Excellent Service Cons: , No Parking more

Corn Beef and Cabbage 3/10/2003

This was the best corn beef and cabbage meal I've ever had - and at $10.00 in downtown Chicago, you can't go wrong! Pros: Inexpensive more

not good service 2/22/2003

The food here is above-average bar food. I've been here about 4-5 times b/c I live one block away. The service here is terrible (although the bartenders are ok). It starts with the hostess and gets worse with the waitresses. If the hostess is busy, she seems to take her frustrations out on the clients. I thought her attitude was bad when we had to deal with her, but I confirmed the attitude while observing her behavior during the night. The bar is usually crowded and the waitresses get mad at you if you get in their way. One waitress told me to get out of her way or leave. I was with my wife and we were innocently waiting for a table. My advice is to ignore the hostess and waitresses and order food at the bar. more

review Dublin's 2/15/2003

The food is great. The service is bad. As a neighborhood resident and observer of many years, it's obvious they don't care about their service since their location dictates a steady crowd. The veteran door woman (hostess) has a bad side you don't want to see. If you're a bar patron, don't get in the way of the waitresses (which is sometimes imposible given the small sq footage) unless you want to hear an E European swear word. bottom line: good food and drinks, poor service, use it as a last resort in the gold coast. Pros: good food, great location Cons: poor service, irriatible ee's more

BAR NIGHT 9/28/2002

I have been going to Dublin's Pub for about 5 months now, And it only gets better. I'm a chef and the food there is some of the best in Chicago. The atmosphere is great and so is the help. But expect to wait a while for a table (if your not a regular). Pros: Great Food, Fun, Easy to get to Cons: You pay for what you, loud, but always full more
