The food here is straightforward Irish fare; nice heated patio in the back for overflow crowds. Food ranges from good to delicious! I like their smoked Irish salmon as a main course (it's an appetizer on the menu) and my husband loves their fried fish. Service can be mixed -- sometimes great, sometimes not so great. Give it a try!... More

truly a homey Irish Pub with excellent food. Perfect for lunch, dinner, dessert or just for drinks with friends. The outdoor patio is cozy if it gets noisy. All the foods portions are huge, so be prepared to get a to-go box for leftovers.

Great little place, or so it seems to eat and have a beer or two. Very nice terrace in the back for outdoor seating. It is large and can accommodate a good size crowd and if it gets chilly, they have heaters! Food is great pub faire, expect a great time.

Great food, always consistent, great atmosphere and great drinks. Nice wooded decor, but not a huge place or huge menu, so there's less chance of getting a bad meal. If you're in the downtown Glen Ellyn area, this place is worth checking out.

I have been there a few times and have eaten in the bar area, as well as the outdoor area in summer and winter. It was surprisingly comfy in the winter with the heaters and fireplace.

Went with my family to get hanger steak, a rare cut off steak around here. The steak was amazingly good. The service was good and had a great pub atmosphere. Will come back for hanger steak again.

Full disclosure - I'm not a big fan of Irish food, but this is a great place to meet friends or significant other for drinks and appetizers.

I went with a friend the day before St, Patrick' Day. We arrived about 5:00 and were seated immediately. I had fish and chips ($14.95) while she ordered shepherd's pie ($13.95). Both were good, although my fish (Norwegian cod) came very close to being greasy, but still tasty, as were the fries The portions were large A bit of bread... More
