Our ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT Friday Fish Fry (4 PM - 9 PM) remains as our regular Friday special, where $17.95 gets you our signature Fish & Chips entree and lets you keep eating for the same price!

On a different note, best of luck to our Barrington Broncos football team, who are undefeated, sixth ranked in the state and host Glenbrook South tonight at 7 PM in the first round of the playoffs.  The Pub is honored to be hosting pre-game festivities for the players parents and fans!
