We chose Tommy Nevin's Pub for a meet-up of about 25 friends who used to work together -- it was great! The wait staff was attentive and the atmosphere perfect. A perfect happy hour gathering spot!!

It's an institution by now. Because of this, it can be a bit lax at times. All in all pretty good, though, with the corned beef done to this Celt's liking.

Fish and chip special was good a little salty, the service was ok. The projector TV in our eyes was a downer.

Corned beef is lean, tender and a generous portion but the cabbage is hard as a rock. Potatoes and carrots are good. Service was attentive.

Nevins used to be one of my favorite pubs. No more. Went there twice thus month. Wait staff seemed to have wandered in by accident. Drinks came in about 40 minutes. Food started arriving about half an hour later, with one person at the table finally getting a simple dish nearly an hour after that. And that in an empty... More

I was staying at the hotel across the street and visited the place a few times on my stay in Evanston. During the school year the bar is primarily full of college aged kids. Not your typical pub crowd. Decent service and very good beer selection.

Had burgers, sweet potato fries. Ordered medium rare, received medium on three burgers. The meat was good and it tasted good. The local brews and variety was great.

This restaurant reminds me of a place in Ireland called Nevin's in County Mayo. If you google the restaurant in Ireland the outside looks the same. Pretty incredible, I asked if there was any relation between owners and there isn't. Service was okay more a local place I feel. I had the fish and chips. The fish was slightly soggy... More
