We happened on this place because a couple of friends ended up there and we met them out. Christine, Jessi and Gia were the best bartenders ever so score yourself a bar seat if you can. There was a solid list of beers and the food was outstanding along with the atmosphere. This will definitely become a regular spot any... More

Have been here a few times now after Cubs games. Great atmosphere and music. The girls working the back bar always do a good job taking care of us. Restrooms are downstairs, but were always clean when we were there. Definitely check them out if you're near Wrigley!

We stopped here for lunch before we headed down to Wrigleyville to pick up our World Series game 5 tickets. Everyone was so nice and accommodating. The shepards pie was the BEST I have ever had. The owner or manager stopped us before we left to ask us how everything went. We appreciated that too! Cubs won too!!! Great day!!!

Great Wrigleyville pub for Cubs fans and locals/travelers in general. Laid back atmosphere. Jessie is the best bartender in town. Hopefully she is working the night you show up!!

What a great experience after a Cubs game with the staff at Irish Oak. Hands down, Gianna was one of the best Bartenders I've come across with. As a person in the industry, I have high expectations and she met my marks and then some. Great atmosphere with live music made the night enjoyable. Coming from Maui, I will definitely... More

We went on our way to a Cubs game. It was raining and the place was crazy. Food was good. Wings were just OK. Fish n Chips were good.

Just south a block or so from The Friendly Confines, serving good food (Irish favorites as well as American food), Irish whiskey and beer! What's not to love? Especially since we've always had good service, too.

Located close to Wrigley we stopped in for a pregame bite and drinks and left genuinely pleased. The pretzel appetizer was one of the best I've had in Chicago although the cheese sauce was watery. Still the pretzels stir/logs were hot, soft and salty. My sliders and my friends Cesar Salad were also well prepared and tasty. Beer selection, not... More

Staying in Wrigleyville

Neighbourhood Profile
Wrigleyville
This energetic sub-neighborhood, part of the larger Lakeview neighborhood, has a split personality. In the daytime you can stroll along its streets and enjoy a quiet meal, shop for gifts, walk along the row homes or sit peacefully in Graceland Cemetery. After dark, the neighborhood springs to life. Go bar-hopping along Addison and Sheffield Avenue or join the crowd at the historic Wrigley Field for live music. If there’s a Chicago Cubs baseball game in town, be prepared. Cubs fans can get a little rowdy and may prove to be a bit overwhelming if you're not expecting it.
