Located right at Market Sq. a popular tourist area, I expected a busy place - but found it almost empty on an otherwise busy TH evening. I was a bit unsure of my choice but really felt like a burger. The Steak Burger was very good - the beef used was definitely a good quality and cut. Cooked to medium... More

Stopped for a late lunch after spending time ( and money)at the Charleston Market. I had the burger with Mac & cheese. My friend had the open brisket sandwich. Good food and service. Nice atmosphere but it was not very crowded due the time of day.

Walked by and thought it would be a place to get a quick bite to eat. We were wrong,they only had 1 server and 1 bartender. When we walked in I would say it may have been 30% full, they do have nice big booths that hold several people. Yes we were a large group, got drinks pretty quick, then... More

We were walking all over downtown Charleston and decided to try this place for lunch. Good pub atmosphere. I decided to have a bowl of the Guinness Beef Stew and my wife and I shared the appetizer size of the Irish Nachos. The stew was very good. Nice flavour with plenty of beef, potatoes and carrots. The nacho plate was... More

If you're a fan of any Chicago sports team, this is the spot to be during a game. Good food, good beer, great atmosphere to watch a hockey game.

I walked by the first night in town and saw the "W" flag hanging out front then saw a Blackhawk painted on the window. That night the place was full so I came back on Sunday to watch the Bears game. Most of the crowd was for Chicago so I stayed for the game and some wings. Perfect afternoon.

Great bar, great service. Period. The bartenders were friendly and knew their town and drinks. Lots of fun to watch sports or just chill out after sight seeing.

My family and I went in expecting the typical Pub Food, but found an amazing place to eat. The food portions are huge, the food it's self is amazing. The staff was very friendly, and with two kids 8 and 14 it was a very appropriate place for them to be. We had the French Dip, fried shrimp, fried pickles... More
