A very nice atmosphere here. From the wooden tables with people carving their initials to the general feel of community. I went on a Saturday when they have half price wings. So I ordered the bbq chipolte ones. However I went here because they made a list of places with great hamburger. I ordered a burger with pulled pork and... More

Irish pub on the northwest side. I found my new favorite burger! Michigan cherries, blue cheese, spinach, burger in a fried tortilla with balsamic drizzle!

If you are in a hurry this is not the place for lunch. The Rubeun and tater tots was great. Others I was with had the buffalo wrap. They said it was good but had way more slaw than chicken.

Great pub in NW Grand Rapids - good food - from salads to sandwiches and great selection of beers as well. Salads are good sized, burgers are good - sandwiches are really good and there is good variety.

We popped out for a quick evening mean on Memorial Day and were very pleased to find O'Toole's restaurant open. Great atmosphere (peanuts on the tables and their shells on the floor), excellent sevice, and very tasty food. My wife's chicken-filled quesadilla and my half Reubin sandwich were both excellent.

I have called the place twice regarding an over charge from my last visit. Each time the person answering the phones gets my information and says their manager will return my call. I will be reporting this business to the better business bureau. I would not recommended using a credit card/debit card since their servers clearly get away with fraud.

The burgers are very good, great service and ambience. A very popular place on the Westside of Grand Rapids. Large bar with extensive craft beer options.

You may have heard other places have the best burgers but its not true, O' Toole's has the BEST burgers. Its not fancy, just a great food place. Its great to go in the spring/summer because they open all the front windows. You have to go, its great!
