Monday’s are very family oriented and my family LOVED it. First off the kids eat free on Monday so the value was outstanding. Second there was a balloon artist on hand that made some amazing balloon animals for my kids. The service was prompt and I love the atmosphere at this O’Tooles. It’s quickly becoming my favorite restaurant in town for pub fare. But to say it’s just pub food would be an understatement. It’s a pretty diverse menu and both my wife and I loved our dishes. She had a salad of some sort and I tried the Korean bowl. It was great. Certainly not something you find everywhere.

Great place. Great food, awesome beer menu and they know how to treat the family to a great dining experience.

Always a nice place to go!
But did not appreciated that we got our starters at the same time as our entrees!
Tables on the patio are really small so was not pleasant.
Asked the waitress if they could guet back with entrée later but she told us that they had no room under the pass anymore....
Was not such a pleasant evening....

I was pleasantly surprised to see that O'Tooles' outdoor area had been redone. We really wanted to be outside, but it was going to rain. However, with the new roof on the patio, it didn't matter! Also, the menu has changed by adding several interesting appetizers and meals. Our server was really nice and helpful, as was the rest of the staff. I've been going to O'Tooles for a long time & will continue to do so.

Disappointed overall. The Charcuterie board (1/2) was scanty and nothing like the previous one I posted on Instagram. I did not post this picture because it looked pretty aweful with a whole dish of mustard (really? whose suppose to eat that? There was more mustard than cheese or charcuterie). The Boar Meatloaf was over salty, not as good as previously. The mashed potatoes were good and the vegetables too salty, but fairly good. I took a friend here to celebrate her birthday because I used to have a good experience. I will not be coming back.

Our food was brought out wrong, we ended up having to pay through another waitress as ours disappeared for a half hour after giving us our check. Food was good though. It seems every time we are their one of our orders is brought incorrectly or not at all what was ordered. This is why we don't go very often. It's really a shame.

We were a tad early but seated right away. Fortunately we did not care to sit outside as it was over 90 degrees, because the outside was full (of crazy people who like it hot :))

Food was good, I enjoyed the Ribeye steak sandwich which came a little rarer than what I consider medium rare, but was still very good and very tender. My side was tator tots and they were quite good.

My cousin had the salmon with quinoa which she also enjoyed very much.

Server was attentive without being too intrusive. She filled up my empty glass of diet without me even asking. Payment was made easy by her quickness as well.

An enjoyable lunch to be sure.

There are a ton of choices for dining in downtown Libertyville and O'Tooles is usually a pretty good choice. I really think they are better for a microbrew with friends than for lunch / dinner. Last time we came in the wife had a craving for fish and chips and I was pretty open to to anything on the menu. The fish batter was pretty salty and my entree was luke warm. Sort of disappointing for a high end pub prices but I don't think it would stop us from stopping in again.

working on preparing patio seating the night we visited -- seems like that is something that could have been done during the daylight hours. Created noise and activities that made our table uncomfortable. Tried bison meatloaf for the first time there - not too good , large portion covered in gravy but way too spicy . The usual great service and drinks

My 11 year old has celiac disease and the waitress did a good job in communicating the safer options for her on the gluten-sensitive menu, as well as explained how she would ask the kitchen to be sure to clean off the prep area and grill for my daughter's meal.

Love O'Tooles! The food is great! We, on this occasion, made the mistake of sitting upstairs. Stage area where a small band of unattended children was running and screaming around all the tables. Parents of the kids didn't seem to care. O'Toole staff finally asked parents to control kids but it only lasted 10 minutes - then back to the screaming and running circles around our table.Staff did not return to ask them to stop again.

Will not eat upstairs again.
