We had a Groupon and went early on Friday evening. When we walked in, our friends were already seated, so we joined them. Had they not been here, we would have left. Unfortunately, there was also a sports show being broadcast from a corner of the room. Though we sat as far away as possible, and complained several times, the... More

Have ordered both burgers and salads to go.. The night I picked up burgers was awesome, great cheeseburgers cooked just the way you want them.. And ordered chef salads to go on a Hot August Evening, when you can't eat anything warm because it so hot outside. Salads from here are awesome....

Ordered ribs, which were very good. The waiter was very accommodating and helpful.The portions were OK compared to the price, but not excellent. It was a nice place to eat before going to the movie theater.

Visited on a Sat. for dinner, they where not very busy and now I know why! Service was poor at best! The ribeye sandwich I ordered had no taste! For being an Irish pub, the corned beef and cabbage was not good at all! Corned beef was chewy probably the worse we have ever had! The bar is in the... More

We have been to Tom Kelly's 3 years in a row when racing at Joliet. This year I was less impressed than the previous years, but still liked it. The wait staff wasn't quite as good & the food was down a notch as well. Not much, just enough that I noticed.
