Went for lunch had a huge burger and chips. Friendly atmosphere and great rock music. Beer garden if there isn't a snow storm and don't forget their happy hour every afternoon. Very reasonably priced in comparison to Iceland s normal expensive prices

This place has good prices at happy hour, which lasts until 8 pm, and they have a nice selection of music. Fun bar to spend some time at.

After paying waaay too much for a beer on our first night in Iceland, my husband put together a list of all the bars with happy hour and the times offered. First bar on the list was Dillon. We liked this bar so much we didn't bother visiting any others for the duration of our trip, which is very unlike... More

I went to Dillon to see some bands play. The place is pretty unprepossessing, being basically an old wooden house stripped back to the exterior walls with all the wood left dark and exposed. But they have a decent beer selection, and and an impressive array of whiskey, scotch, bourbon and rye. The sound for the bands was well done... More

This was a great place for a pint downtown. Dimly lit with a rustic feel (in a good way!) Good beer prices during happy hour. Love the atmosphere.

Great whiskey, bourbon, and rye selection with varietals that are even hard to find in the states. Cool atmosphere, bartenders were good, and you can even get food from the Chuck Norris Grill. The one negative is that it is expensive, even for Reykjavik. Worth a night out, and it's situated near other hip places, if you want to bar... More
