Diner Reviews
  • "I will not return. They have 8-10 menu pages of alcohol ... 2 pages of food items. What does that tell you? Disappointing."
    Dined on 8/24/2014
  • "The outside seating was at capacity, but there was plenty of room indoors. The drink menu is noteworthy, including imported and domestic ciders that can be ordered as a half pint or more, much more limited in food choices. The burgers are excellent and prepared to taste. Not too many booths or lower tables--extensive bar seating of course, mostly high tables with stools and of course at the bar if that's your interest. Media viewing is extensive and not blasting you out of your seat--nothing else like it in Oak Brook, parking is awful even with Valet."

  • "Excellent serviice and choice of food...be sure to ask for outside or a booth"
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "The place can be on the loud side, especially if there is a big sports match on the TVs. But the food is amazing and I can always find a new beer to try. I love coming here in my quest to try all of the beers they offer. This place is great for a dinner with their "small plates", but it also great to come a little later just for some appetizers and beer."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Fantastic beer list, but average food lacking presentation (esp. charcuterie). Chili tasted off, needed salt? Server was very good. Even though the outdoor dining must have gotten much busier than management anticipated due to weather. Friendly, professional host (manager?). Biggest complaint...horrible loud industrial music may fit in fine at city locations, but very out-of-place (and annoying) for Oak Brook clientele."
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "Second visit within a month. Nice spot. Lively bar. Upscale, but not too upscale. Food was GOOD bar food. Beer was excellent. Service was friendly and attentive. Great big screen TVs with the ball games on. Will be a regular."

  • "All our first time to Old Town Pour House. Originally planned on eating in but it was so extremely loud inside that we chose to eat outside instead. Biggest complaint is all the burgers were overcooked. Instead of medium rare we got medium well, if it wasn't for the good toppings, we would have definitely sent it back. Not sure why so many restaurants can't cook a burger correct?!?"
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "Our first time dining for birthday celebration. Our food was very flavorful and hot when it arrived. Their beverage list was extensive and everyone was experimenting with all the beers. Our server could've been little more on the ball,but we had an overall great experience."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "We went here for the first time for my husband's birthday & had the burgers, which were pretty good. I noticed, while looking at the other diner's plates, that for those who ordered foods other than burgers, the portions were pretty small & pricey. There is no bargain to be had here for the prices that are paid to dine at this establishment. They did meet my dietary restrictions, which was great & they did give my husband a birthday dessert "on the house". In all ways, from service to food, this was pretty average and I'm not in any hurry to return here."

  • "Had the fish and chips, the fish had been reheated."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "We met another couple for dinner and we really enjoyed the food and extensive drink selection. We made reservations online however found out that it didn't apply to outside seating which was the choice of the evening."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Food and service were great - they need to tone down a/c when doors are open to patio and it is low 70s outside. If you like beer this is the place for you."
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "Met our friends there and sat outside. It was a beautiful night, service was excellent and the food was really good. Dj was playing great music you could hear outside. Will go back."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "I had the fish and chips, which were very bland. The slaw was just ok. And I practically had 6 fries to go with it. We opt to sit outside on the patio, which was very nice. The beer list is very extensive. It was my first time dining here. It's close to my job and I had the opportunity to get 1,000 open table points. I would come back and bring my fiance since he is a big beer drinker. The food list is very minimal. I would come at night just to sit on the patio."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "great beer selection. very nice outdoor space. food average at best."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "We didn't know what to expect from the Old Pour House. But, we were very pleased! The Mac and Cheese appetizer was delicious! Great selection of wines and drinks. And the outdoor seating was perfect for a warm summer evening. We will definitely be back."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "it was a beautiful night to sit outside, so we went here to enjoy the weather, get dinner, and try some the of brews on the extensive beer menu. The beer menu is multiple pages long, while the food menu is only a couple. We ordered a burger, brisket, fish and chips, fish tacos and the special of a shrimp salad, so a decent sampling of varied food items. They were subpar at best, with the fish and chips and salad being the worst of the bunch. So, if you are going for food, choose one of the many other options in Oakbrook. If you want to sit outside and enjoy a few drinks, try this place."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "This was our second time dining at the Pour House. While the atmosphere is busy and upbeat, the food is just okay. The menu is decent but they just don't deliver as far as the food. Very underwhelming. I doubt we would return as the food just doesn't meet our foodie expectations, even for bar food."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "So glad they have such a large outdoor seating area- perfect for drinks with coworkers. Very good deconstructed Niscoise Salad, but the fried pickle appetizer was just ok."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "I always enjoy Old Town Pour House, it's a great place to meet clients, because there are so many beer selections, but also because the menu selections are so varied. The chili is great, can't say enough about the cheese curds, and you simply can't beat their burgers! We had excellent service, we were able to relax and talk without being rushed, but when we needed something, the staff was extremely attentive and professional. I've been many times, and will continue to return to OTPH!!"
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Good Beer list, food was average at best. Good place to stop for a beer after work before heading home."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "Pour House has a unique menu and tons of beverages to choose from. Loved the buffalo shrimp, BBQ smoked chicken salad, crab fondue & snicker pie! the Oakbrook location has a nice patio as well."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Not a huge food menu. Great place to go out for drinks, but food was just an after thought."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Across the board - a perfect lunch experience! Split the chili which is phenomenal, than each of us got a sandwich - the smoked brisket and the pulled pork. Definitely a delicious meat overload of the positive kind, and that's what OTPH is known for. Both sandwiches were amazing, each with its own special bread and perfect accompaniment. The coriander slaw on the pork, the gouda on the brisket - WOW. Coupled with the parsley fries, we were in a food fog heaven. Portions are enough that one can gorge and still have a decent portion for later. Their outside area is so comfortable and so inviting. We could have remained there all day, even if we left after 2 hours and never were we rushed. Service is friendly & attentive. Never an empty glass!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Old Town Pour House has become a regular spot for us to catch a quick bite in good weather. The outdoor dining is all high tops and with enough room in between to be a pleasant experience. While very noisy it is definitely a great place to catch some unusual bites, a unique brew and watch a sporting event on one of the two TVs. Definitely recommend this bar/restaurant for locals, visitors and groups that want to come together over food and drink in the beautiful Oak Brook setting. Small and unusual bites are fun to try but they are expensive. Limited fuller menu offerings. But if you want to sample some beers in an upscale setting definitely a top spot."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "While there wasn't a large crowd for lunch, the service was slow. The waitress was not really attentive when it came to my food allergies which always makes you nervous about the preparation. Despite noting gluten free on my order she served me a salad with croutons and pushed desserts that clearly weren't gluten free. Oh well, not sure I'll return when Wildfire is right next door and knows how to handle gluten free dining"

  • "It doesn't mater what type of restaurant I go to, I expect only go back when they meet a minimal expectation. Old Town Pour service was ok not great, but the food just did not deliver."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "I have been trying to get into Pour House for a while now for lunch. Finally was able to secure a reso for this past Saturday. Started by sharing the calamari which was cooked perfectly and served with both cocktail sauce and tarter sauce. I had the lobster roll which was amazing. Tons of lobster and done just right. It came w/ fries that were also very yummy."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Old Town Pour House is about the beer and in that regard it does not disappoint. With 90 selections on tap there should be something for craft beer lovers to enjoy. My beer snob hubby (self-proclaimed) tried three different double IPA small pours and came out with a clear favorite. The food was decent to good but nothing special - I had the pulled pork which was a little dry and my hubby had the fish tacos which he felt lacked a bit of oomph. Our server, Rick, was attentive and fun and the restaurant manager, Nick, made sure he chatted up each customer. My biggest complaint was the noise level. The music was so loud we had a hard time conversing. Because the craft beer will be calling we will no doubt go back again. :)"

  • "The entire grid of restaurants along the perimeter of OBM were without power during lunch with a friend. Fortunately, we had just enjoyed sharing a lunch of tender meat laden chili, BBQ chicken salad, a juicy cheeseburger with fries. We were just about ready to dig into the delicious butterscotch bread pudding with raisin ice cream when the restaurant lost all power. The servers and management couldn't have been more gracious & accomodating. If such an awful loss as electricity is going to happen anywhere, it might as well occur at Old Town Pour House. They handled an unfortunate situation with class & aplomb. If they were able to handle this, I have to think they'd handle most difficult situations well, and for that reason, I'll be back!!"

  • "My son loved the beer selections. Wine list quite extensive with some wines on tap. Sandwiches excellent. Service just ok."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "The restaurant was busy but did an excellent job of keeping our reservation and we sat on time outside. The service was excellent, made great suggestions for dinner and beers alike. The food was good, the place was very clean and the bar had a great selection of craft beers. The only complaint that I could make is that parking isn't great, but they have valet, so can't even really complain about that. I will return"

  • "terrific beer menu. Food menu limited, like it was an afterthought. Just go with burger"
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "Food is typical bar food though my chopped salad with chicken was quite good. They were very busy but I don't think the waiter should comment that he just got three tables and will get to you as soon as possible.. Be ready to talk VERY loudly"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "This is a nice place, but a bit overpriced. I feel like they couldn't decide if they want to be upscale or casual so it was a bit of both. TONS of beer options which was nice but the food was just OK and a bit overpriced. Nice outdoor patio though."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "I went here with my wife and had a good time. The fish and chips were very good as was the beer. Just a great selection overall. The burger was underwhelming. The patty is probably premade and not to order which leaves it lacking flavor and was poorly seasoned. I would not order it again."
