My wife and I visited Elwood's Pub for our first time. I was never in that area and this place was a very pleasant surprise. Our waitress (owner)was spot-on in recommending beers for us and we really enjoyed the atmosphere. It was 'open mic' night and the talent was only 3 folks but they were excellent. Although it's off the beaten path, I will return.

It's hard to believe that 'Barsmart' hasn't reviewed here as it's been open for 15 years. The wings are excellent and the food I've had over the years has never been a disappointment. I really like how the draft beer is cold and that it's a clean establishment. Plenty of free parking, several evenings with live music and a real variety of daily specials. It might be a tad difficult to find ... View More

The interior is very nice with several couches and 2 fireplaces. However some changes are in order. The tv's were on one of 2 stations, more variety is needed. The temperature of the draft beer needs lowered and dirty glasses were set in front of a couple at the bar. Certainly that couple deserved a better view. There is a lot of competition for business in the Wexford area and this place ... View More

I hadn't been to this place in years, I remember it as a smoking bar. That's not the case now and it's quite clean inside along with plenty of parking. Some of the best wings I've had in years and a friendly crowd.

My wife and I went for lunch a week ago. We were pleased with the menu variety and our sandwiches were excellent. My beer was cold and the bartender/waiter was friendly. My only complaint is that they need to replace the chairs as they're very torn. Parking could be a problem but wasn't that day. We shall return.

I've been to this place about a dozen times, with a huge variety of people. Everyone has enjoyed going here and that's why I keep taking people there. The service is great, the food is really good and the cleanliness is unbelievable. They always have decent specials going on, so I've gone at different times. I have yet to go for their live entertainment, am looking forward to that. Parking ... View More

This used to be "Kaib's" and I was there off and on for 10-15 years. It's nice to see all the additional tv's, I don't think there's a bad viewing spot. I really hope they intend on improving the men's room, it's too small and outdated. The atmosphere is still the same (great) as it's a combination of many age groups and you don't feel out of place if you don't live within a mile of the place. ... View More

My sister, wife and I went last evening and initially it wasn't busy. The crowd steadily increased but it never interfered with the quality of our waitress. She was very friendly and offered menu/drink suggestions when asked. I like that almost any attire is acceptable as we didn't plan on going anywhere to eat that early. The food was good and the carrot cake dessert was excellent plus was a ... View More

My wife & I ate their last night. A pet peeve of mine is if you're drinking during happy hour, you don't get the discount if you're on the restaurant side. I don't get it. The bar is listed as 'non-smoking' but that's only true for the restaurant side. Our meal was okay but the wait for food and drinks was s-l-o-w. The older photos on the restaurant side are interesting and something to look ... View More

I met 3 other friends Friday night and we stayed 5 hours. Our waiter was excellent with funny chit-chat and offered us a special sauce for our wings. His service was prompt the entire time and the pub-grub menu items were great. The place is extremely clean, including the restrooms. Two of the people in our group had never been there and now plan on returning. It's nice that there's free ... View More

My wife and I went to Tonic last night for a 'Breast Cancer' cabaret. The place was packed yet the waitstaff was excellent as were the appetizers. A previous rater praised the mac/cheese and I concur. The margaritas were the hit at our table of ten people, try them! The place is clean, well-lit and we shall return. We didn't sit outside but it looked like the people that did were having a ... View More

I don't know how long this place has been open, can't believe it took this long to try it out. My wife and I went last night and the food was excellent as well as the service of our waitress. The interior is beautiful and clean and I like the atmosphere is great. Attire varied last night between jeans and suits and no one was out of place. Unfortunately we didn't order alcholic drinks, so ... View More

My buddy and I went Thursday night in spite of my buddie's previous bad experience. This time it was different. We ate in one of the smaller dining rooms and the service and food was excellent. We had two beers apiece there and went to the bar in the grand room for more beer. Obviously, the beer is excellent and the band on stage was fun. At 9pm that night, the price lowered to $6 for a ...

This place is very clean and there are plenty of tv's to view the sporting events. The waitresses dress in referee attire and are very attentive. The sandwiches and appetizers are very good and they have a kids menu. There is plenty of free parking, even with the businesses nearby. Thirsty's has a lot of framed photos of athletes along with jerseys, it has a nice collection. I felt ... View More

I was disappointed by their small selection of draft beer. My wife and I were the only customers in the dining area and only 3 people at the bar. Yet the bartender/waiter was more concerned with conversation with the people at the bar. The food was good but the portions weren't memorable. With the amount of competition on the South Side, having a bicycle hang upside down isn't going to make ... View More

Although it's off the beaten track, the pub grub is worth the effort. The crowd is a real mixture, from retirees to the early 20's. It has the feel of a neighborhood spot but you won't feel out of place if you're not a regular. Parking can be difficult on weekend nights but the rest of the time you should be ok. The interior is a bit worn from all the crowds, it would be nice if they would ... View More

My only complaint is that it's a 'smoking-bar'. The sandwiches are excellent as well as the service. It's definitely a neighborhood stop but I've never felt out of place. There are always specials going on and the wall treatment is fun too look at.

The food is good here but the preparation time is slow. Waitresses are friendly and the place is 'kid-friendly'. Late last summer they constructed a deck, which is a great addition. Their selection of bottled beer is excellent as you can buy 6-packs. The place may be difficult to find but there is plenty of parking in the nearby Sears lot. I intend on going there more in nice weather.

This place has gone thru several ownership changes in the past 2 years. The kitchen is not always open and although "non-smoking", the smoke drifts in from the outside smoking area. Sometimes specific brands of drafts or bottled beer are not available as their inventory ran out. The best part about this place is the attractive & friendly barmaids wear swimsuits or lingerie. Regarding mixed ... View More

This place used to be very over-priced. Now the quality and variety of food is great and prices are very reasonable. They have daily drink specials and their weekday "happy hour" specials are excellent. Very clean and service has never been a problem. There isn't a bad seat in the place regarding viewing televisions and is now "non-smoking".
