No cover and no line which was difficult to find on a Saturday night. Had a beer. Open late. Nothing special

This place is great for a beer and a snack in River North. Especially like the Harp lager. Thoroughly recommended.

We called by for a drink prior to dinner. The area where O'Callaghan's certainly had a party atmosphere, it was early evening on a Saturday when we visited. The happy hour was good with good appetizer and drinks offers. Service was also good. It have a high energy atmosphere, with music and chatter.

We just fell into this place as we were parched at the moment. The staff was very friendly and the bar itself was a thing of beauty. It had been transported from another bar that was in San Franciso.

This is small pub offering cold beverages and small, but adequate selection of bar type offerings. The burgers, served on a pretzel roll, tasted good. The fish and chips were also a hit. The servers were helpful and accomadating.

We ate here on a Sunday evening. This was our 2nd choice, the first one wasn't open. I was so glad we ended up here. The Char burger will fill you up! My boys loved it!! The hummus with carrots was amazing--so glad I ordered this. I was a little nervous getting it at "a bar". Great place with outside... More
