Today we celebrate the return of our BURGERS WEDNESDAY... it's the same great specials we had back in the normal days, except minus the wings. Get an 8oz Black Angus burger with side starting at just $5.95, plus we also offer a specially made Burger of the Day. These offers are meant for dine-in only but as a thanks to all our patrons they are also available for carry-out!

In the near future we are bringing back one of our favorite weekday burger speciuals and may also be trying out some weekend brunch items. Stay tuned for details!

On Thanksgiving Day (Thursday 11/26) the Pub will open at 5:00 PM, full bar service available but our kitchen will be closed. Traditionally many of our patrons bring some leftover food to share, so there should be plenty of snacking available!
November 20, 2020
Plain & simple... YES WE ARE OPEN for full regular business and will continue to remain open for all our patrons. Regardless of the current climate and "mandates" it is important to us that YOU have the choice of what you can do and where you can go for lunch, dinner, drinks, whatever. We of course also offer carryout and online ordering & delivery via DorrDash. THANK YOU for your support!
November 16, 2020
Once again, THANK YOU for your patronage! Though we are pretty much fully stocked, during these uncertain times we must remain rather cautious in our purchasing... so there is a chance during the week that we may run out of some food & drink items. If this happens, we do apologize for the inconvenience but rest assured it will just be a temporary situation. Thank you for your understanding.

We are pleased to announce that our efforts over the past couple days has left our establishment in a very clean and safe condition, so we will again be open for regular business starting today! Having said that, please continute to check back with us here and on our Facebook page for important updates as the situation in our state continues to change. Also note that our hours of operation have changed slightly - open seven days a week 11 AM - 11 PM, and our kitchen is open until 9 PM.

We are all well aware it’s not just flu season but also that coronavirus cases have been steadily rising within our state and region. To stay ahead of the curve (and keep it flattened here) we are taking additional precautions to assure the overall safety of our customers and staff. On Wednesday (11/11) and Thursday (11/12) the Pub will be closed for all business so we can concentrate on deep cleaning and directing recommended sanitization efforts throughout the building. We will reopen for regular business hours on Friday, November 13th.
Note that moving forward we will continue with regular full building sanitization, most likely on non-busy days - this will be noted in advance right here and also on our Facebook page.
We apologize for the inconvenience but will be ready for the weekend! Thank you for your understanding.

Summer in November continues at least for a couple more days... join us at the Pub as we do have some limited outdoor seating still set up. Of course we are also open inside for regular business. THANK YOU for your support & patronage.
November 6, 2020
Yes we are still OPEN for regular business! Weekend specials for the Nebraska-Northwestern game (Saturday) and Bears-Titans game (Sunday) are posted to the right.

Please remember to VOTE today! It doesn't matter who your candidates are, what's important is exercising your right as an American by making your voice heard. When you're done feel free to stop by the Pub and enjoy our BEER ME TUESDAY specials, plus we'll be showing election results this evening.

All of us at the Pub wanted to thank our loyal patrons and plenty of new customers for being overwhelmingly behind our decision to stay open. As stated in our prior announcement, it's the survival of the business and all involved with it that's at stake. Though we completely understand that our actions may not be the right direction for everyone, our goal is to give people a choice. We'll continue to follow the same safety protocol we've been doing for months... so feel free to join us during business hours, call us for carry-out, or ignore us altogether. It's YOUR choice, and that's what's important!
Though we are currently fully stocked for full operations, the uncertainty of business levels in the immediate days ahead required a severe cutback in our normal weekly purchases. That means there is a chance we may run out of some menu & drink items, but rest assured we'll still be "good" for the weekend and of course will restock accordingly next week.
Our Halloween Party (with a live DJ) that was planned for this Saturday (10/31) has been canceled. Even though everyone attending would be wearing masks (either costume or the others), hosting a large gathering at this time simply isn't the right thing to do. We will still be open for regular business, so feel free to dress up, come out and enjoy good food, drink & camaraderie!

Despite the state mandates targeting the closure of bars and restaurants in our region effective this Wednesday (10/28), the Pub - along with our connected neighbors at Big Iron Horse BBQ - have made the personal and business decision to remain fully open. It was proven during the first shutdown that we were not designed to be "to-go" type of establishments, so simply stated our businesses will not be viable if expected to go through that once again. There isn't any other choice if we have any hopes for us to survive and our employees to be able to pay bills and provide for their families.
Understand that this decision is not meant to downplay the severity of the virus. We know how devastating it has been for those who have lost loved ones and for society as a whole. While open we will continue to do our best by taking all proper safety measures in our establishments to keep our customers and staff safe. Our goal is to give YOU the options without questionable mandates dictating what you can and cannot do. Regardless of if you choose to frequent us or stay home, we completely respect your decision... just know that you're always welcome and we plan on being here for you.

The Pub will be having a casual Halloween party this Saturday, October 31st. Drink specials and live DJ starting at 9 PM. Costumes not required but encouraged... especially those with built-in masks! Check back here and on our Facebook page for more details later this week.
UPDATE 10/29/20 - hosting a large gathering at this time simply isn't the right thing to do, so we have canceled our halloween party plans.

GO BIG RED!!! The Big Ten are finally back in this Saturday (10/24) and our Nebraska Huskers take on Ohio State at 11 AM - viewing in our main level with sound.

Additionally, from 10:30 AM - 4:00 PM take $2.00 off all pizzas and $1 off our fantastic Pub Chili (cups and bowls). Note that Manchester United has a match vs. Chelsea at 11:30 AM; this will be shown on one of our HDTVs and additionally our $4 Heineken 20oz Draft gameday specials are back in effect.

Our last day of expanded outdoor seating will be Sunday November 1st. We sincerely thank the Village of Barrington for helping us out the past several months, and hopefully we'll have nicer weather for everyone to enjoy up until that day. We will also plan on opening The Loft again at that time... our amazing second level is very roomy, has it's own large full bar, bathrooms, jukebox and nine HDTVs... perfect for larger (and safe) gatherings and dining!
