We can tell that a bar knows its business when it puts a pint of Guinness on the appetizer menu. This Lakeview Irish Pub has beer-battered pickle chips. Do we need to say more?

Cozy decor, friendly staff, feels authentic! – Wow, this is the best Irish bar in town in my opinion. I've been to Dublin and feel it could be placed there and the Irish would not know the difference! The staff is amazing, especially Sarah and Gail. They are polite and offer great service but are so much fun. The food, while I was skeptical at first, turned out to be pretty damn good for a bar. Highly recommend this for either a fun night out or a lunch out with your friends.

Best Corned Beef Sandwiches! – My friends and I came into town to watch the Cubs game from Los Angeles. After the game we stumbled into The Irish Oak just looking for a beer before we went home. A couple of beers later we ordered some food from the menu. Everything we ordered was great but the Corned Beef Sandwich & The Shepherd's Pie were the best we ever tasted! The service was great too! Sarah, our bartender was very cool. She was helpful in recommending food from the menu and drinks from the bar. Our short 6 hour stay at The Irish Oak was one of the best parts of our trip to Chicago.

Wrigleyville pub praiseworthy for its charmingly authentic furnishings, entertainment, food and drinks. – The Scene
Set in the heart of Wrigleyville, the two-room bar is a low-lit, casual hangout with all that real Irish charm many other area pubs strain for, as everything here has been imported from the home country. The stereo plays a mixture of traditional Celtic and modern Irish tunes (U2, Van Morrison) to accommodate the 20- and 30-somethings crowded into booths, banquettes and tables. People come from near and far for eclectic live music Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.

The Draw
On inevitably crowded weekends, the Guinness and Murphy's Stout taps can hardly keep up, but the mostly Irish staff is cheerful and attentive. On the food menu, there are some nicely presented entrees and Gaelic specialties like fish-and-chips, Irish stew, corned beef sandwiches, and Galway Bay smoked salmon. Savor the all-day Irish breakfast of imported Irish bacon, black-and-white pudding (blood sausage), eggs, mushrooms, tomatoes and beans any time you like.

You kiddin' me??? – On the off chance you leave BEFORE the end of a Cub game, GO HERE. The atmosphere is unmatched and whether the back is open or not, the Pints flow!!! The earlier you get there on game day the better your view (of everybody).

Not a pick up place but the best at sit down, drink, enjoy, converse, and did I say enjoy?

None Better in Wrigleyville! – On the Wrigleyville strip where most bars are competing to be the most trendy, The Oak just feels more like home. The staff is very friendly and extremely attentive. The Irish Stew is the best I've ever eaten! The live music never fails to please and they serve up a mean pint of Guinness that's hard to top unless you travel to Europe. The decor is authentic which, with everything considered, makes the Oak a true Irish pub.

After work bar? – This is not a after work bar. I was there last Friday.

I was one of five people. This is a great bar late night or cubs games. Please take it off the after work list.

Get A Bite Of The Irish For St. Patrick\'s Day We know St. Paddy\'s day is all about the booze, but some of us want some great Irish grub to sop up…
