Emerald Loop Bar and Grill
Service was excellent and when me mask strap broke, the waiter brought me a replacement mask. Loved that!
Great place for drinks and food. Would recommend again!
Slow service, mediocre food, overpriced, and they don't serve tap water.... you only can buy water bottles. Add to all that a customer that got hostile and loud (so the police were called), and it is needless to say we will not go back.
Great place for drinks! Would recommend to anyone!
Service was fantastic but the food was not at all worth the price.
Great service. Distanced. Masks! Reasonable prices
Just stopped by for lunch on way home after being at the gym. Comfortable vibe - food was tasty, service very good. I’ll probably go back.
Good comfort food and lots of beer on tap. nice big and roomy dining with high tops and tables. always have the games on.
This place was awesome! The service was excellent the drinks were amazing.
We were provided with excellent customer service from the gentleman that took our order and our food was delicious! We will be eating here every time we visit Chicago. Thank you! 10/10 recommend visiting this gem!
Fun seating outside on NYE!
Great friendly service!
not the best experience
I wouldnt go back a second time
Customer Service was not good. Our server was not attentive. We needed to ask the supervisor for the things we needed
Good pub food, nice atmosphere and drinks are good
Very good food and service. Would like to rate the ambiance and noise more accurate but this was reviewed as part of the outdoor dining only covid restrictions
we sat outside. noticed the server was doing an excellent job with safety. really conscientious. she also handled a couple loud person just hanging out by the restaurant. she was wonderful. i wish I had her name. I'd return just for her great service. oh. she also signed me up for their rewards. perfect server!
Food was good & our waitress was very nice and made good recommendations! Restaurant was very empty for a Sunday night and the only downfall was the music was too loud.
Friendly and quick service.
Quality food and drinks.
Always a good time at the Emerald Loop
The food was overpriced though the corned beef and cabbage was tasty.
Service was slow. Food took a long time.
Standard pub fare at a reasonable price. Fun atmosphere and very friendly and attentive service.
Family brunch celebration for husband's birthday
Very good food and decent prices! I had the brisket platter and the meat was cooked perfectly. More than enough for one person and the cole slaw was delicious!
This place is fine if you're looking for American style Irish good, however, they were not super accommodating to plant-based eaters. I tried calling ahead to ask what plant-based options they had in addition to the Beyond Burger and was hung up on when the woman went to go ask the chef. I'm guessing she tried putting me on hold but hung up instead. Once we got there and I asked the waiter my questions, he seemed a little annoyed and finally came back with only half my questions answered (the gluten free bun is plant-based but he didn't ask about any of the others). Overall, it was a fine place for a double date with non-vegan friends, but I'm not sure I would personally go there again because of their limited menu.
Our server created a memorable experience. The food we ordered was great and nice portions. We will return. Thank you.
We go to EL every time we are in Chicago. Love it!
Solid bar food with good atmosphere.
Great service and food. The menu had a lot of variety for picky eaters.
Very disappointed, as this place was highly recommended. Arrived for a reservation at 5:30 and were seated promptly. The waitress placed out orders, table of 4. There was an extremely long wait for the appetizer. Once it arrived, the food came 5 min later- minus one order. The waitress forgot to enter one of the orders. My order was incorrect as well, nothing fancy- just a turkey burger with mushrooms and cheese. The turkey burger was missing the mushrooms and was unbelievably dry with no sauce. The waitress apologized and offered our friend several options to help remedy the mistake. We were offered 20% off our entire bill. Our waitress felt terrible for the mistakes and said it was her second night. From that perspective, she was set up for failure to have an entire section on a busy Saturday night. No excuse for the food issues- blah!
The staff was welcoming, friendly and attentive. Good variety of food on the buffet. Will definitely go back there again!
Excellent food options for our whole family, which includes two vegetarians.
This is a very good casual food option before going to the theatre, very good food in a very comfortable setting. Friends were also presently surprised for this very economical option in what could be a normally expensive dining area.
Our food was terrible. It was cold and looked as though someone literally dumped a can of pork n’ beans on the plate for their “Irish beans”. The food was overpriced and our dining experience was very disappointing. I would not recommend it.
The Emerald Loop is our go-to every time we are in the Theatre District! The food, drink and ambiance are excellent! The management and staff keep us coming back!
We ate before a show at the Chicago Theatre. The food and service were good. Our only opinion was that it was extremely loud....we could barely hear each other at our table.
It is too loud as I think three of us suffered fro digestion issues! Will or go back!
Food was only so-so-average. Place is beautiful, lively, close to the Chicago Theater, and our waitress was fun, but wouldn't go back for the food.
Being an Irish bar, we went for the Irish specialties, but the corned beef was very fatty, the Shepherd's Pie was sorely lacking gravy and looked like it sat under the heat lamp for too long.
We also had a hickory burger, which was only Luke-warm. The Nashville hot chicken, which our waitress said was her favorite thing on the menu, was dry and over-priced. French fries were not warm on anyone's plate. Crispy Brussels Sprouts appetizer was soggy. Sorry, the place itself is great, but we won't be back for the food.
The brunch buffet was actually pretty good overall. Omelette and sausage were great. Bacon was sitting in a lot of grease and a few of the pancakes were super hard (no big deal there, it's a buffet and we were near the end of the brunch hours). Main reason for the moderate score was that we waited for 20 minutes or so for our check, and went without drinks for 5-10 minutes at a time even with bottomless mimosas.
Lexie was a great server!!
Great Service and Ambiance! Busy and crowded but you still had room and could hear each other. Hostess and waitstaff were great! Casual dining at its best and for the Loop prices were good
