Very clean bar and pub. Good food and decent prices for Chicago Loop. Would go again.
Good lamb stew and chowder. great brown bread, but the best item is many beers on tap!
Had a cozy dinner in the bar area. The staff was friendly and professional Mac and Cheese was to die for
Our go to place when taking in a show at the Chicago Theatre. It's only a short block away. Service and food never disappoint.
Food was very average and over priced. Not enough waitstaff and very loud
Good casual spot with solid pub food. Can get crowded; the most recent night we were there it was packed and kitchen was slammed. Things were slow, food not as good as prior visits, but server did his best his to keep things moving and get us out the door in time for the nearby concert we were attending.
Best burger I've had in years!! Very clean restaurant. Great ambiance. Will be back for sure. Only thing negative is it's very loud. Prices very reasonable.
Ate here before seeing a show at the Oriental Theatre. Great atmosphere, food portions were huge! I had fish and chips and my husband had the shepherd's pie. We both really liked it but we could have shared the shepherd's pie. We had had a large pretzel before and couldn't decide if we preferred their cheese sauce or mustard...both were amazing! They had a lot of different whiskey and Irish beer.
I wanted to throw a happy hour before tax season.
This was perfect.
It was easy to hear people talk and the beer was reasonably priced.
Meal was fresh and tasty.
I made a reservation for Saturday night, and when we arrived, the restaurant was not busy. I asked that we be seated in a part of the restaurant that was not as noisy. The host seated us directly underneath a speaker. We waited 15 minutes for someone to show up with water, at least. We finally gave up and walked back through to the host station. When I told him that no one ever showed up to take our order, he said "That's too bad," but offered no remedy to the situation. I have visited the EG several times before and never experienced this level of disregard.
Everything was very nice and the staff was great too!
Always a good time at Emerald Loop - their food has always been good, I come a few times per year. Had the nachos this last time, all of my coworkers were very impressed. Good spot for happy hour, I would recommend reserving a table. Can be extremely busy, or rather dead. Good patio seating in the summer.
The glasses we received for drinks had lipstick and residue on them. The server was incredibly busy and we had to try really hard to flag her down for drinks, food, etc. Overall, pretty underwhelming. But, it was close to the Chicago Theater, which was convenient for quick bite and drinks before seeing a show.
Great location. We took our elderly parents for dinner to Emerald Loop before a show at the Chicago Theatre. It was extremely loud and we had to yell (doesn't help that they are hard of hearing!) due to a company's holiday party in the bar. We would have booked a table in the rear of the restaurant had we known how loud it would be. Our server was fantastic. My dad enjoyed the fish and chips.
Second time there. This visit was before a show. Food was great, service excellent, and for Chicago a good price value.
Restaurant was not very busy and our service was great. The food was delicious and served quickly. I would recommend this pub as I will definitely be going back there myself.
My wife and I ate a late night dinner and brunch the next day at this establishment. We found the food to be good. The brunch was a typical offering we felt that the food could have been warmer than it was and that the breakfast muffins etc, could have been fresher than they were. Actually enjoyed the dinner more as found the spinach dip to be quite good. Would have rated the food higher had we only had dinner and not the brunch. The place was quite, clean, cozy, and overall pleasing. We must admit that the service was quite good at both dinner and the brunch. Felt that the food was very reasonably priced remember you are in Chicago. The restaurant was very conveniently located in regard to the Hilton that we stayed at.
Always a fun place with good food and service.
