Exactly what it should be! – Great vibe and aesthetics. I eat lunch here about once every month. It feels like home as soon as you walk in. It's pub food the way it should be done. I really like the No blarney burger and the Irish Ruben is great as well! The bar is pretty standard in a good way with Guinness, Boddingtons, Bass, Harp, Wyder's Cider. I have been to many "pubs" only to be disappointed. Timmy's holds true.
Best Irish pub you'll find. – I can't say enough good things about this place. The servers and staff and owners are some of the sweetest, friendliest people I've ever met. On our second visit to the bar, the bartender (Cara) remembered our names and our drinks (and even a weird little twist on the way I like my drink to be made). Everything on the menu is delicious (my top recommendations are the cheesesticks, curly fries, and tuna melt; my friend swears by the Irish stew, and my husband loves their salads and hot wings). We frequent this place a few times a week and are never disappointed. They've got a great jukebox and are super accommodating on Sundays when it comes to getting *your* team's game on the TV. It's truly like going to a bar that feels like home!
Tuesday night gatherings – I was introduces to Timmy's by my dad a few years ago. We go in for dinner occasionally and sit at the table upstairs by the front window. Since then I've taken many friends there for dinner and lately we've started gathering on Tuesday nights for some social time and relaxation in the bar downstairs.
As for the food, I highly reccommend the Dublin Chicken (marinated in a wine sauce with artichoke hearts and mushrooms) and the Irish Nachos (quartered potatos fried and topped with cheeses, peppers, onions and Irish Stew). The only complaint any friend has ever had about the food was that the corned beef is too lean, but that's a matter of personal preference.
The staff is great, very friendly and the jukebox has plenty of old and new favorites. I don't care much for all the TVs, but if you're a sports fan, Timmy's is a great place to be to watch a game. The upstairs area offers a respite from the noisiness downstairs during the busy hours.
Still Great – Returning to LA for work, after a couple of years away, Timmy's is still a wonderful time. Stop in for lunch(JD wings, and a steak sandwich) and was pleased to meet a friendly staff, Cara was bartending, Matt(The owner) and the great cooks. I agree with the previous reviewer Margarita( spent many a happy hour with her there, (Stoli around the World shots, anyone?) A great place to eat, catch a game, play some tunes on the Juke box or just relax after work. Can't wait to return later this summer.
My home away from home – I moved out to Studio City by myself and Timmy's became a staple of mine weekly. Lunches or drinks in the evening, the patrons and staff were ALWAYS friendly. The food was exceptional especially the chicken quesadillas. Margarita and Co. made it a great experience.
Margarita sends all her best – I use to work at timmy nolans a few years ago, and This place is one of the best kept secret places to go. Not only is the food absolutly great ( the owner matt and his wife, belva sent me the chicken marsala 3000 miles to me when I was pregnant- those darn cravings) but the people are some of the kindest people in LA. I worked there almost everyday bartending and I still miss it every now and then. If you decide to go, you'll be hooked and keep going back. You have to try the chx marsala. Delicious!!!!
Tell them Margarita sends her best!
Kind and Comfortable – Absolutely a place to relax and have a drink with some friends. Most people come in groups so don't expect Timmy's to be a hook up joint. Also, the downstairs (main) area is small and gets overcrowded quickly. The drinks are average in price and power. The food is average bar fare. The nice thing about Timmy's is the staff - friendly and appreciative. I've also found that the upstairs is an ideal place for get togethers and private or semi-private parties. Its not my regular choice only because its a bit too mellow for my tastes but, if you're looking for a quiet night out with some friends - this is your place.
snobbish – I have tried this place close to my Burbank home a few times. Some real stuck-up Tolucans, and thats just the staff. You really don't feel welcome unless you are a regular within a one mile radius. Lighten-up, my money is green too!
"Cheers" To Timmy's in Toluca Lake – This place is the friendliest bar I've found since leaving Michigan and Chicago. Neighborhood bar feel with great staff & great customers. Good beer selection and they even started using Coke again (Pepsi ruins drinks)!
Friendliest place for miles around – Timmy's is probably the friendliest bar you'll ever hope to find. You come here because of the atmostphere that the customers generate, not for any gourmet dining experience or the latest fad. If you're friendly and genuine it doesn't take long for the staff and the regulars to get to know you and treat you like you're part of the furniture Lunch and dinner specials change daily. Big selection of draft beers - 10 at the last count. Great place to watch the Lakers, Notre Dame Football games and NASCAR on HDTV.
