As always, good stop for food here. The place was too cold for me. But food's always good. A lot of choices, sandwiches and entrees. Ordered Reuben sandwich, very good and hubby ordered salad. Moderately priced.

Sat in the bar, by choice. Great vibe there. Tacos were really good. Service was attentive yet not overbearing. First time there for me. My wife has been there several times and loves their burgers. Only downside for me since I can no longer drink...More

I sampled three of their beers at the Palatine Octoberfest and, you know, they were OK--nothing exceptional (but also nothing terrible). Kind of what I've come to think of as "Ordinary Localbrew."

What a wonderful Pub located off the beaten track on Pepper Road in Barrington. It must be a local favorite because each time I've visited, it is busy. I can understand why. The food is much better than most pubs I've been in, and the...More

I love coming here as there is such a great selection of their beers and food choices. You can try this beer or that beer before purchasing one. You have to try as they have some that you can't get anywhere else. You must go

The Onion Pub is located in an industrial park area and should PUBlicize their PUB more. We went there for a late lunch on a Tuesday. It's not easy to find a good restaurant with atmosphere that is open from 11 am to 11 pm....More
