I always have a great time at this bar. From the cheap drinks to the lively patrons, unless you are uptight, this is a great place to visit!

I was in Chicago on business with a co-worker. We stayed in Chinatown, which doesn't have many food options- unless you're in the mood for Chinese. We weren't. We settled on the Polk St. Pub, because it was close-ish, and we were starving- and it meant not going downtown. We got out of our ride and looked around suspiciously. This... More

This place is awesome! They have unique burgers, they have ordinary ones as well but there's no fun in that. We got our order to go, even tho it says family friendly it seemed more of a bar pub setting. The staff is super friendly and will go out of their way to help you. Definitely worth giving it a...

If your are looking a classic pub, of the beaten road, it's the place you want to be! We had our friends at that evening, ordered our ales, cocktails and burgers. All tasted great and the crowd is very cool. Great place to see Bulls or Blackhawks games. The only handicap is no free parking....but it's ok, if you think... More

off the beaten path, but worth the effort, great hamburgers, cold beer, and a friendly staff makes this a fun place to go, packed with locals, everyone makes you feel like you've always been going there, check it out for a good time.

On our last night in the town we decided to check out this Pub. The food was great and the service was good. A great place to watch the games. It is loud once it becomes full.

So it looked kind of scary from the outside when I walked up from The Loop area downtown and I was regretting the mile walk. BUT, it was great! It is a dive bar with awesome food. Watched the Blackhawks with a lively crew of locals and feasted on some delicious wings. Try the garlic-cheese sauce you will not be... More
