Love this place - never had a bad meal, there are a lot of options (my friend was Gluten Free, I'm on Weight Watchers) and their beers are de-lish! Never disappoints.

Meals delayed but Jeremy the manager did apologize which was appreciated. Cauliflower steak was tasty, chicken sandwich was a mess, and Impossible Burger was a good red meat sub, but surprised at the add on pricing since they are less expensive to purchase and prep. As much as to be expected for a lunch in the Oakbrook Mall.

Service was spectacular. When we arrived, we requested an outdoor table, and decided to have a drink at the bar while waiting. When just a bit of rain swept in, both the hostess and the assistant manager tracked us down to let us know about the weather change and to ask if we wanted to risk it or instead take a comfortable indoor booth. We took the booth and had a great dinner!

The buffalo warp is not with buffalo sauce at all. It was Cayenne pepper. Simply terrible.
The Chicken tacos looked great (good colors) but tasted like nothing.
Beer is overpriced, the cheapest beer was $5.50 for a Miller Lite, I am not kidding.
The fries with ketchup were good as was the very small "salad" of corn, beans and relish (about 3 spoonfuls, no wonder the waiter suggested we substitute fries or something else.)
The 2 main dishes had no taste or were not as advertised.
The outdoor patio is nice and the server was fine but don't get either of these 2 food dishes.
Ask the waiter what their best items are because these sucked.
AVOID, there are too many good restaurants, no reason to go here again.

Two of us had the sliders which were excellent and we split the snickers pie, also very good. The two others both had burgers which they said were great.The mule was ok, I make better, and service, while very nice, was extremely slow. We sat outside which could have been a lovely experience but every now and then we'd get a whiff of sewer or garbage or something gross.

First time at Old Town Pour House. Promptly seated inside and waitress stopped by for drink orders. That’s when the good service ended. We sat, and sat, and sat with no return for food orders. I looked around and couldn’t find the waitress. Finally a manager stopped by to ask how things were going and I told him we’d like to order food and had been waiting. He sent another waitress over for our food orders. Once the other waitress helped out, every time our waitress returned she had an attitude. Food was very good and setting was nice. Not enough to balance out the poor service and coax me to return.

Food was very good. We were seated in an area that was not part of dining room. Waitress brought a drink and took order. Someone else brought food. She basically ignored us. We had to flag her down to get a refill. We could see her filling drinks of other tables. Never checked to see if food was good.

Let me start first my saying the food was great, as was our server. Nice menus selections for food and beer. We were seated inside at the far back. Even before our food was served, we were pestered by a couple of gnats flying around. Didn't think anything of them and believed them to be random. Once our food and beverages arrived, they were quite annoying and greatly increased in numbers. It was the most bizarre restaurant occurence ever. Gnats were everywhere. We had to completely cover food with napkins, uncovering parts when eating, and beverages glasses had to be covered owith our phones. My one son didn't even touch his fish and chips because gnats were all over it in spite of constantly swatting them away, which was useless. They got in my daughter's coke glass and she couldn't drink it. Management moved us when we were nearly finished with our meal. It was a welcome change but it was too late. Within minutes of moving us, they seated a couple at the sole table next to our original seating. I felt bad for them and believe it was poor judgment to seat them there. The interior had many tables open - why do that knowing we were just swarmed there? Management took our two appetizers off our bill and provided gift cards for half our remaining amount due. They seemed perplexed and apologetic. We had chosen this place to celebrate my daughter's birthday. They need to find the source and fix it. Not sure the five of us would return. It was a gross and odd experience.

I had been to Old Town Pour House before, but this was the first time I sat outside. What a lovely area!
Our food was quite good. I had the Scorpion 'impossible' burger and it was outstanding. Initially, it was brought to me without the "Scorpion" extras, but the server quickly corrected that. The Scorpion burger comes with pepper jack cheese, jalapenos, jalapeno jelly and a nice spicy aioli. I also had a side Caesar salad which was nice and fresh. My friend had a standard burger..it was very good and cooked to his liking. The french fries were amazing as well!

Went to restaurant to enjoy a late lunch with family on 4th of July. I ate at restaurant about 1 month before and enjoyed the food and service, so recommended, wow, I was sorry I did that. The service was not the best but still left a 20% tip of a $200 bill so pretty substantial. (she never came back after we paid to thank us...disappointed) We ordered our food, delivered by someone other than waitress which was OK, but waitress never came back to see if all OK? One of us ordered fish taco's, he said it was awful, the breading so thick on fish, could not even taste and very dry, sent back, asked if he wanted to order something else but because everyone else had food and eating, decided not to. The salad I ordered was the same I had last time but was sub par to say the least. Smaller portion, no blue cheese or avocado which I realized was missing at the end of meal. Was the level of service and food based on it being a holiday so the "regular" chef and staff off for the day, not sure but will not return or recommend. There are so many choices in Oakbrook, everyday is important to be on the top of your game. We had a nice time because were with family on a holiday, not the service or food served!
PS....we were the party of 6 at 3:30 on 4th of July....reservation not necessary since not busy, not reflected in services rendered!

The noise level of the restaurant was extremely loud. But the service more than made up for the atmosphere. The food was good but I wish that there was more of a variety. The best part was that the restaurant opened up the full windows to allow for a more open atmosphere. The view over the patio at sunset was awesome.
