Its a decent Irish sports bar, drinks were a bit pricey. Standard fare but can't really complain, it's close to the hotel

This pub was close to our hotel so ended the night here most nights. Food is great especially the boneless wings. The cocktail menu is small but boy are they strong! Great service and I'd highly recommend this place.

We asked our hotel where we could go for a quick bite, and he suggested Emerald Loop, right across the street from the hotel. The spinach artichoke was great and may have been the best I've ever had. We split a chicken wrap and salad, both of which were very good. The pub itself had a nice bar, and looked... More

Ate here twice in 2 days, because it was open late and my picky eater liked the food. Waitresses were very nice, especially when kitchen messed up the order.

Desperately slow service, food ok. Called in for a quick lunch; it was significantly less than half full and we ordered sandwiches. After polite requests for updates sandwiches arrived 45 minutes after ordering. They were OK. No apology for lateness beyond an explanation - obviously untrue - that they were busy. Messed up our day as we were on a... More

An Irish Pub with a very limited selection of Irish dishes. Mashed potatoes were cold. Burger was dry. Avoid the "Wisconsin Cheese Curds". Scallops were a nice surprise as an appetizer. The hostess was rude and not helpful. Food was slow coming out, even at 5:30 on a Sunday. It was a real disappointment for a dinner before the show... More

Our flight was delayed so we didn't get to our hotel, the Wyndham riverfront, until 11:30 and they were closing their bar and restaurant at that time so they pointed us to Emerald loop which was right around the corner about 1 1/2 blocks. We felt safe walking there. The bar was packed because or exciting March Madness games but... More

We were wandering Wacker Drive looking for somewhere to eat at 11 pm on a Tuesday night (we were staying at the Wyndham Hotel) when we spotted the sign for a bar and grill. So glad we did! Not only was the music good, the wait staff was friendly, the menu extensive and my chopped salad was the best I... More
