Great food – Went here with my softball team for the first time the other day and had a great meal out on their patio. Staff was friendly even thought they were really busy.
Nothing Like Good Ole Plums – Me and my girl friend bought a Happenings book, and noticed Plum's coupon inside. We both decided to give it a shot. We went in during happy hour, and got some tasty drinks at a great price. The apps were fantastic, and the burgers and fries were the best I've had in a long time. We turned Plum's into our weekly spot to do drinks, and we've been in there every Tuesday and Friday since. Amazing courteous staff and talkative and fun loving bartenders. Always a familiar face from the neighborhood, and you can always spice it up with their amazing menu.
Great Example of Neighborhood bar – If you're looking for a unique place of exotic drinks, rare Scotch or costly foods, etc you'd be a moron to go to Plums. Its not what they're about. Plums is a pleasant neighborhood bar where friends meet to have a beer(s) and maybe a few appetizers. Every time I've gone in there I recognize folks from the neighborhood -- that's a nice feature.
2nd dirtiest bathroom I have ever seen – ATTENTION Air hand dryer only in the restrooms. Toilets unflushed, floor filthy, no soap. So many better places in that neighborhood, The Nook, Copper Dome, Goby's, Blondies, Tiffany's. Horrible service. Surley inattentive staff. The food looked good, but after my trip to the restroom I was afraid to eat it.
Nice weekend spot – Thursday through Sunday you can generally find a crowd here at night. They have some new dj's that have really stepped it up, as the 40 year old guy didn't used to do such a great job...
NOT A DIVE – I can't help but notice the review where Plum's is referred to as a dive. This person has clearly never been to a real dive bar if she thinks Plum's is one. They aren't trying to be five star, but they are by no means a dive. It's a little spot with good drinks, great food and friendly staff. It's a neighborhood bar and that's what it is...they aren't trying to be anything else. Anyplace that has had customers smoking in it for as long as it has been open, is going to smell of smoke even after the smoking stops. It is a bar afterall! Don't be turned off by the stupid "dive" review. Plum's is a nice place and the food is always great. Try the Yellow Fin Tuna Melt...it's the best sandwich ever! YUM!
IT IS A DIVE!! – IT IS A DIVE SMOKEY EVEN THOUGH YOU CAN'T SMOKE THE PLACE SMELLS IT IS DIRTY I COULD GO ON AND ON ON BUT IT'S NOT WORTH IT
Editorial Review by Citysearch Editors – Relaxed Highland Park pub serving brews and pub grub to white- and blue-collar workers from the neighborhood.
Recommended – Plums is a great bar to meet-up with an old friend and catch-up on old times and have a beer over dinner. In the summer time, you can sit out on the patio and talk over dinner below trees that are decorated with a string of white lights that give off a soft glow. After dinner time, the bar will have some type of entertainment. Normally local entertainment on Friday's or a DJ other days.
