Crowd-pleasing happy hour spot with tons of room for the whole crew. I dig the giant beer selection, above average eats & ample flatscreens.

HAPPY HAPPY Hour! – I love this Irish Pub. The food is delicious, and their Happy Hour is a lot of fun without being stuffy or over crowded. My girl friends and I went to O'learys after work last week and found that the drinks were not over priced, the bar was busy but not over crowed, and the food was really good. The fried Mac and Cheese rocked!

Do not eat here – My mom and I went in to O'leary's on a dead Sunday afternoon. There were 3 other people in the bar. The bartendress was chatting on the phone with her friend and set it down just long enough to take our order. That wouldn't have bothered me if the food hadn't been totally disgusting. My mom ordered a burger and said she had never before seen hamburger that looked like that. I had a tuna melt that was cold in the middle. Also, the diet coke was flat. I am normally a very low-maintenance patron, but have eaten at some other great Irish places in Chicago (Garrett Ripley's) and was disappointed we stumbled into this place. If you were just looking to have a beer at the bar, this would be a fine choice.

A loyal crowd hits this dark, quiet Irish-inspired pub away from the tourist hordes in River North. – In Short
In the midst of River North, O'Leary's is a homey little place with hardwood paneling, an old mahogany bar, and plenty of draft beer choices like Guinness, Bass and Harp. The Irish pub's menu spans the Atlantic with classics like Irish stew and includes American classic bar fare as well. Burgers are the easy choice--half-pound and served with crisp fries (or pasta salad). In the summer, O'Leary's outdoor patio provides prime people-watching.

Perfect after-work bar – I love the sidewalk patio and the big open windows in the summertime. The drink prices are pretty average and the food is not bad--the chicken Caesar salad is surprisingly tasty. It's a great after-work hangout.

Fine times – This is a perfect spot for just hanging out and having drinks--not a scene place or typical of any particular type of crowd, it's more upscale than a dive, but not as uptight as a hipster haven. Beer banners and TVs broadcasting sports contrast with the refinement of the huge dark-wood bar, but the disparity sets O'Leary's comfortable tone. The bartenders tend to be older men, which may give an initial impression of an old boys' club, but they are equally attentive to both male and female patrons. The menu is fairly straightforward--sandwiches and bar munchies--and satisfying. There's a good selection of draft beers, prices are reasonable, and the jukebox plays songs most folks know.

Good pub – This is a good place for lunch or after work. The food is basic, but not greasy. The service was nice and prompt. Sitting outside is fun, and the crowd is basically office folks on their way in one direction or another. I will be going back.
