We stopped here to get a quick bit of food as a late lunch. Other places near here are pretty pricey and a little too over the top. Dublins was a nice quiet place with excellent service and quite good food which frankly we didn't expect. Service was impeccable. Agree with others that this is not an Irish pub but... More

My wife and I have lived on Chicago's Gold Coast for 40 years. I can't recall the number of times we have walked past Dublin's Pub at 1050 North State Street in Newberry Plaza, between Oak and Maple, in the heart of the Golden or Viagra Triangle's restaurant/bar area at the confluence of Bellevue, Rush and State Streets, across from...

Love the staff at this bar/restaurant/pub! The staff & service is where all the stars come from, while the food is delicious, it's not Alinea (Michelin Starred Restaurant). This location is more of a tavern/ bar than a restaurant, but the food is still very delicious. It's right in the middle of all the action in the Triangle. Great patio... More

We were in the city with friends who wanted to experience Chicago but weren't ready to pay Rush Street prices. We stumbled on Dublin's Pub and so happy we did! What a neat little gem tucked into the middle of all the higher priced cheffy-chef restaurants on Rush. Food was very good, quick service and large portions. Drinks were also... More

It's just average, but it's somewhere you can get in for a quiet beer in a pretty packed area. Now and again they have some offers so it gets busier, but generally a decent respite from the cold.

My husband and I eat there every time we go to Chicago. Their Irish stew is the best! Located among the best restaurants in Chicago this little pub is always packed. Bar apps are typical menu and are excellent. Very clean, a local favorite.

Very rarely give a bad review. BUT I'm going to make an exception. Dublins was close to where we were staying so decided to pop in for a drink. The man that served us was brusque and not friendly at all. We were asked if we wanted Grey Goose Vodka. As Vodka drinkers, we like grey goose and said 'yes... More

If you are looking for a pub which that true Irish Pub charm in the middle of Chicago, I would say this is you traditional community pub. Great pub feel, dated with a little history, and standard reasonably priced pub fare on the menu. We sat inside but I believe they have a small outdoor patio as well.

Staying in Gold Coast

Neighbourhood Profile
Gold Coast
Located just north of The Loop, Gold Coast is one of Chicago’s most affluent and popular neighborhoods. The original Playboy, Hugh Hefner, once had a mansion here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants. Walk along Oak Street for your shopping fix and dance through the night along Rush Street. The Newberry Library is also a great stop to check out noteworthy exhibits and rare book collections.
