Horrible service – Don't come here if ur expecting good service
the worst staff in chicago!! – there must have been at least 10 people on in this tiny bar. no one does a thing. my date and i sat @ a table and were ignored. when a server rudely informed us the table was only for diners, we told her we were. she then made an audible "ugh" and walked away. ten mins later another man brought out menus. i had to repeatedly go to the bar to get my own drinks, from an old brunnette bar tender who was unfriendly and mean. my dates food came ten mins after mine and his fish and chips were burnt. i'll make sure to tell everyone.
Irish, my butt! – Usually when you go to an Irish restaurant you expect two things, friendly staff and good Irish food. You will get neither at Dublin?s Pub. Now, if you would like non Irish food served by a rude non Irish staff then this is your place. There was a time when you could sit for hours, eat and drink until your hearts content. Last time?and I mean last time I was at Dublin?s Pub they seated someone else at our table before we finished our meal. No kidding!
Great late night, or just good dinner... – I've lived above this joint for two years. I order there on a regular basis, and would not complain about the food. I have never had a problem with a dish there in the two years me and my husband have been going there. I used to go there late night for food before going home, or stopping in for one last drink before heading home. The crowd is always a weird show-mostly I think because of the location. I never bat an eye with anything I see there, because it seems that I've seen just about everything. I must say, that I don't go there friday or saturday nights to drink, but it does get quite crowded. Needless to say, I do love this place-and their food for a pub is very good.
NOT GOOD FOOD – Burger was over cooked, server was short with our table and we were over charged for our dinner. I live less than a block away and there are so many places to eat in chicago I would never go back to this one.
STAY AWAY... – I have always enjoyed Dublins until last year on my 30th birthday. I stopped by with my bro and ordered food and a pint of Guinness. The bartender didnt seem to be in the best of moods and asked us to leave?! It was crowded and I dont know about any of you but if Im not wanted somewhere I dont want to be there. So we kindly obliged and left. As I was walking through the door I was pushed down to the street. I got up and noticed 2 Chicago Officers standing there. My brother came out with the food and was not happy. I told him its not a big deal and suggested we leave quickly. Somthing wasnt right. As we are getting in the cab my bro had a words for Chicagos finest. Next thing I know we are both hand cuffed in front of Dublins sitting "Indian Style" on the curb. While cuffed the police officers were calling us racial slurs and maced us repeatedly. We were arrested for Trespassing. Chicago PD and Dublins have some sort of relationship. Based off the reviews I have read if you have a problem with their service or food I strongly suggest you keep it to yourself and just leave. Little scary in there.
zero star was not an option to rate this place – food and drinks late night. however, rude and physically violent wait staff, too. busboys work as bouncers/boxers at this place looks like. i was physically hurt by one, but not much i could do right now. illegal immigrants are not in the "sysytem" unfortunately. what kind of messy place do these place come and act as if they own the country, the city? for god's sake, once again, time to vote republican.
Great place for a tourist – A wonderful place to stop in and have a quick bite while wandering through Chicago. As one reviewer already mentioned the corned beef and cabbage was incredibly good and inexpensive (of course it is corned beef and cabbage). Good atmosphere and a great place for people watching.
BEST NACHOS EVER! – This little dive on the corner of Maple and State street is the most pleasant surprise of any restaurant I've tried in Chicago! Although this hole-in-the-wall type of bar is nothing fancy to look at, it boasts an awesome menu (which has never failed to please!) For a bar, the service is fast and friendly. The nachos are delicious, as well as their Dublins Salad (which has avocado, cucumber, hearts of palm, artichoke hearts, fresh mozzarella, and chunky tomatos). Portion sizes are large but are so good you won't want to split!
Great for dinner as well as late-night,post-bar food!
Best Pub... – This is my favorite bar in Chicago...overall. Good food, good people and good atmosphere. Stays open late, too. I recommend Dublins to everyone...new and old to Chicago.
