Tryed to go before an IU basketball game. Kilroys decided to charge a cover to get in for no band, dj, or entertainment. We weren't thrilled but paid anyway. The bar was also being renovated and as a result was cluttered as well as having sections closed off and bathrooms closed as well. I had trouble getting one server to... More

I'm thinking this is just your average college bar, it has been many years since I was that age, but I think I would have enjoyed it at that age. Service was great as was our server Sarah K. Food was ok and they have specials, the night I went it was $1.00 sliders, and they played some great music.... More

I've been in this bar a few times in the last few years and every time I've been there it smells bad it's allowed the beer is hot and in less you are 18 to 21 you're going to be too old forgot you have to be 21 but I didn't really forget

Great spot for bar food, drinks and dance bands. The music starts up after 10:00 AM and goes into the night most weekends -- fun place to enjoy.

I did not have any food here, but the drinks were good. It is a college bar, and the bartender was a good one.

service was good but was a typically cheap college bar. Not super clean and overrun with college kids chugging bud lites and cheap booze

During the week Kilroy's has unbelievably inexpensive lunch specials. Where else can you get a burger and soup for $2? Service and food was great.

Good atmosphere, Great food, AMAZING time! They have the best specials, which makes it super cheap to have as much fun as you want. Go on a Tuesday or Thursday--the specials are awesome!

Kilroy's is another one of IU's iconic places to get a beer and some pub grub. The place is usually packed with students and it's the place to find or make connections to IU Alumni.

I wanted to say a big yes but left feeling dirtier than when I entered. It's obnoxious. It takes forever to get a drink and the food isn't great either. Plus, it seems to be the local idiot hangout. Don't plan on using the bathrooms here because they are disgusting. Also, the drinks seem watered down. I would recommend this... More
