Fine for nostalgia (but elmhurst has sucked for 10+ years) otherwise eh - so generally eh. One of the ol' classics. Doesn't mean it still is. the ol' notion...

Food was okay: salad was good, coleslaw was good, sliders a bit off, stingy in the meat and not fresh enough for me. Kind of felt we were out of place or not regular patrons and felt a little unwelcomed. It's a neighborhood joint and we went because it was in the area we were visiting and because one of us had the same last name. Probably wouldn't go back.

I used to go to this place all the time before I moved to Florida, the food was amazing. The servers and owners are the most nice people ever. The vibe in the place is relaxed for being a very popular bar and restaurant. Absolutely love this place 5/5!

Great, casual spot with very good bar food. House made soup and chili. Friendly staff and the owners are there most of the time.

Great place for young and older families for lunch or dinner, or just grabbing drinks with friends! They always go out of their way to make you feel at home or like family. All the food is quality and the staff is courteous and attentive. We have young kids and have been going to Riley's for many years which we always enjoy and highly recommend If you are new in town or have never been. I would say Riley's is a must-go experience whether you are looking to have a few drinks or looking for a good meal with a true family atmosphere. They are always very accommodating and the service Is top-notch while the quality of the food is the icing on the cake for your overall experience. Also, a phenomenal place to watch sporting events or even hit karaoke. I never thought to post many years ago until I was looking to order catering on their website which brought me to this post. We enjoy Steve, Debby, and family every time we go... They make the experience great! Thank you for always taking care of our families.

A classic neighborhood beat up sports bar. It looks like the kind of place old time locals would hang out. Riley's is that. Has good stiff drinks. The food...

If it’s good enough for Patrick Kane, it’s good enough for me. Also, cheaper than anywhere else. And you can sing Karaoke there. A great neighborhood joint.

Great place to eat and drink. Can get a little skimpy on the side dishes but food is excellent. Watch out for the little ones that the parents aren't watching. All in all a great place to be.

You DO NOT GET BETTER SERVICE than this place! Plus, they are super kid friendly which I really appreciated as I had mine with me. Plenty of TVs to catch almost any game you're interested in. I'll be back.
