Tuesday November 7th

We're already looking forward to Saturday as our Barrington Broncos host Maine South in the 8A state football playoff quarterfinals (kickoff 5 PM)!  The Pub is the official spot for the BHS Quarterback Club parents & fans to gather for pre-game festivities but we happily welcome visiting fans to also stop here for some great food & drinks.  Also, for those who aren't going to the game we'll be showing it with sound.  GO BRONCOS!

Thursday November 2nd

This coming Sunday (11/5) we're having a football watch party for the Bears-Saints game; it will feature all-you-can-eat pizza and gumbo for $25 per person.  Details forthcoming and they will be posted on the right side of this page.

Sunday October 29th

We will continue to offer Sunday Brunch menu options but they have been scaled down to half a dozen of the best sellers.  Note that these items are in addition to our regular Pub menu offerings, so there are plenty of choices! We also offer special pricing on Bloody Marys and Mimosas.

Over the past week we've now covered our daily specials from Monday-Sunday... please take a look at our Specials page for more info.

Saturday October 28th

The "Pizza, Beer & Brisket" specials every Saturday are perfect for gamedays and remain the same as before. Basically it's a few specially priced draft beer options, Bud/Bud Light buckets, discounted pizza and an amazing Smoked Corned Beef sandwich available only today.  Visit our Specials page for details.

Friday October 27th

Our ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT Friday Fish Fry (4 PM - 9 PM) remains as our regular Friday special, where $17.95 gets you our signature Fish & Chips entree and lets you keep eating for the same price!

On a different note, best of luck to our Barrington Broncos football team, who are undefeated, sixth ranked in the state and host Glenbrook South tonight at 7 PM in the first round of the playoffs.  The Pub is honored to be hosting pre-game festivities for the players parents and fans!

Thursday October 26th

Today's themed special is now "BURGERS THURSDAY" and it's been "beefed up" in terms of offerings.  Featured is a $7.95 burger with side special, burger sliders, discounted pricing on our Kilkenny Ale Burger and/or "Beyond Burger", plus we start our good-through-the-weekend additional food specials.  Visit our Burgers Thursday page for details.

Wednesday October 25th

We've moved our popular burgers specials to Thursday to make room for WHISKEY & WINGS Wednesday!  Today we'll now be featuring our amazing Pub chicken wings and select Irish whiskeys at discounted prices.  Visit our Whiskey & Wings page for details.

Tuesday October 24th

Taco Tuesday just seems to fit and is enjoyed by so many that this daily special stays the same, but we now offer SPICY meat options.

Monday October 23rd

We'll go day-by-day on the daily specials for the next week:

IRISH MONDAY remains in effect with the same food offerings as before, along with $5.50 Guinness 20oz drafts all day long.

Our HAPPY HOUR that runs Monday-Friday from 3 PM-6 PM remains fully untouched...after all it's already the best-in-the-region so there's no need to mess with a good thing!

Friday October 20th

One week from today (10/27) we welcome former Celtic Thunder star Keith Harkin back to the Pub for what should be an incredible performance in The Loft, our 2nd level party room.  This is his ONLY stop in Illinois for his 2023 North American Fall tour, and the show will be opened up by the very talented Corey McLean. Note that this is a TICKET ONLY event and the Pub does NOT handle the sales or logistics - please click here for ticket purchasing and visit for full info.
