I'd rate them as Average (three stars) only if you compare them to other ratty run-down bars where they make you feel like an outsider if you're not one of their regulars. I've been in the place a couple of times and I don't plan to go back. I can't say that I hate it, just more feel like I... More

My wife and I went here on a Friday night...Make no mistake, the place is a bar, not a fine restaurant. But, we love a good burger and bar food. We arrived around 6:15 and there were no more than 10 people in the place. It cannot possibly hold more than 25 people who wish to eat. I had eaten... More

Most importantly, the Guinness here is as fresh as I've had since moving to the north suburbs from the Beverly neighborhood in Chicago. It's fresh as it has that nice sourdough taste. Secondly, the fish and chips is wonderful. Like other reviews, the "small portion " is filling enough. Pairs beautifully with a Guinness. The selection of Irish Whiskeys is... More

My wife and I were driving around on a friday night lost and had no idea where we were. We pulled in here for a drink and ask for directions. After a wonderful meal several drinks and great atmosphere with live music that made us not want to leave, we got directions and went home to Chicago. That was a... More

I stopped in to check this place out as my husband and I passed it a few times and said we should stop in. Irish pub with the flags on the ceiling, dark wood bar in the center, and tables, booths, gaming around the edges. Very warm and friendly welcome from the staff and an amazing burger! I ordered a...

This is an Irish dive bar that has a windmill outside. My wife and I stop here every once in a while for their fantastic fish fry on Wednesday’s and Friday’s. Their fish comes in either a small or large portion (not all-you--can-eat). The small portion is adequate for most people and consists of two giant fillets of cod, perfectly... More

The Irish Mill is an example of why you should not judge a place by its wrapper. Although it is not particularly appealing from the outside we were pleased to find it to be neat and clean inside - very inviting. The fish fry is much better than average. We will definitely be returning again on another Friday. I can... More

We heard this place had a great fish fry so, being new in the area, we tried it out. The fish fry was excellent! Huge piece of fish for not a lot of money. Great service, too!
