Great Neighborhood Bar 7/7/2009

I've lived in the neighorhood for over 15 years and stumbles upon this place about 2 months ago. Reading some of the old reviews on here is the reason I'm writing an UPDATED review. Those one stars obviously are bitter for some reason or know owners on a personal level trying to hurt the business. There is NO way these drinks are overpriced. $3 call drinks on thursdays is over priced? Really? If that's the case then maybe you should just stay home. .35 wings also overpriced. HA. The bartender is one of the nicest and social bartenders I've met in awhile. This bar def. does NOT belong in Lincoln park wher you get 80%under age drinkers with their nose in the air. I've stopped here a couple times since I first found this place and only once did I have a so so experience, but instead of going directly and slamming the business I decided to address it to a manager. It was taken care of and appreciated. I HIGHLY recommend this place especially on Thursdays for their great drink and food specials. I've introduced this place to many people and will continue to do so. Also they have a couple seats outdoors if you don't feel like sitting indoors. Pros: Great Drink Specials more

This is a WONDERFUL place for food for all! 1/17/2009

WOW! This restaurant was a wonderful, wonderful surprise! We thought this place was a bar when stopped in for a couple of drinks with some family from the city on a Wednesday (I think??). When we got inside we saw that in addition to a beautiful bar, this place has a huge restaurant area. Well, we sat down ard ordered lunch with our drinks when we found out that they had a special on hamburgers for $3.00 that day (which they do every week). Those burgers were UNBELIEVABLY HUGE and they were ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS. These were the kind of burgers we used to get years ago at Hackneys in Glenview. We haven't seen burgers that thick in a long time, anywhere! They knocked our socks off!!! We started with an appetizer - fried shoestring potatoes with mushroom truffle sauce called ""Pommes Frites"" (or something close to that). These were fantastic as well. The waiter was also very nice and yet we were pleased to see that he maintained a level of professionalism and kept his distance when we were eating, but kept the drinks flowing. We never had to ask for refills. Needless to say, we would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone. more

Very good food and service. Tasty Pizza. Save restaurant reviews from the Comic Book Guy. 10/16/2008

We went with another family which included 6 children. The accommodations, food and the service was great. I came to the city search site to get the phone number to set up a party. I read the three reviews, apparently written by the same person, and was surprised we were talking about the same restaurant. Someone is obviously disgruntled. I'm guessing that they might be enrolled in a creative writing class at the local civic center. Pros: Large, good food, activities, nice decor more

Wonderful Experience 9/2/2008

After looking through the comments / reviews....I am apalled that you do not monitor the reviews.. Pros: awesome staff and food more

Better than being drawn and quartered......almost. 5/21/2008

The folks who run this place have an obvious contempt for the customer. Way overpriced, lame beer list, and the food nearly brought me to seizure. It's a good size space it's too bad they have no clue on how to utilize it. But the real crime is the staff. I'd rather have sulfuric acid thrown in my face than have to deal with those.....people again. It's their slothful ways that are obviously a byproduct of living under communism. Still, you're in the USA now! Get to Work! Have you never heard the expression ""Work will make you Free""? Any positive reviews here are most certainly written by management. Have these people no shame? Pros: They don't actually slug you in the face. Cons: I'd rather be slugged in the face. more

Only a wrecking ball could improve this place! 5/9/2008

This cookie cutter standard issue pseudo-irish pub left me cold. Was it the overpriced drinks and food? Was it the terrible service from the disinterested staff? Perhaps it was the sterile environment or the room temp appetizers we were eventually served. I just can't put my finger on it. The crowd is lame. Try getting a root canal instead I'm certain you'll have more fun. Pros: They take American currency. Cons: I'd rather have acid thrown in my face than hang there again. more

Another tired ""Irish"" bar...please stay in the suburbs 5/8/2008

This place is a typical faux Irish wannabe bar. Beer selection is terrible. Food is completely standard bar fare. What I can't understand is the terrible music. Why with a place that invested so much in infrastructure would play the Mix? Listening to commercials? Don't fret...there's enough TVs (13 from where I sat) so you don't have to talk with the people you are with. This bar belongs nowhere near Lincoln Square...perhaps Lincoln Park or Wrigleyville or in the Suburbs. The city doesn't need another Applebee's knockoff. If you like anything original, inventive or fun, then stay away from this travesty of a bar. Pros: Good looking bar; not crowded Cons: Terrible service, lackluster drinks, uninspired more

WOW, I cant beleive this food came from a bar! 5/3/2008

I had read some bad reveiws about this place but since I was in the area I decided to check it out myself. Pros: FOOD,FOOd,FOOD more
