It is a great Irish pub for a couple but not a large group or family. Service was slow. Very slow and she wasn’t really interested in talking or informing us of the food and beer options.

In this pub you can feel the typical Irish atmosphere: low light, soccer games on the screen, beer and good Irish food. We had fish&chips and the Irish breakfast.

When everyone on the staff has a brogue, you know its the real deal. Went with a friend and sat at the bar. Fireplace going in the bar area really gives it that small Irish pub feel, even though the bar is pretty large. The...More

A great place for a night cap or dinner. I recently visited Galway Arms with my daughter after a long day of moving. We sat at the bar and just had a couple beers. The bartender was great and spot on for refilling my glass....More

I've never had shepherd's pie that was closer to soup! It tasted OK, but it was just very different. The others liked their beef stew. The service was good.

It's a pretty standard Chicago Irish Bar. Definitely seems to skew to a younger crowd. Pretty decent food. Nothing I'd go out of the way for, but nicely done with friendly service.

Walking around and stumbled upon this gem. Great beer selection and amazing menu choices. Beautiful day to sit on the patio and people watch.

Voted "Best Irish Pub" 4 years running! Come to Lincoln Park for our amazing food, drink and brunch. The grub at Galway Arms is authentic, fresh and delicious! Galway was carved out of two 90-year-old buildings on Clark Street, and the lived-in, weathered feel remains. With its two fireplaces, friendly staff and amazing dishes this is a great place to grab dinner and a beer. Come in to Galway Arms today!
