We know, we know: The last thing Chicago needs is another Irish bar. But once inside this sprawling (yet somehow still inviting) space—which has separate areas for eating pub grub, watching the game from the bar and even reading (in the cozy "library")—you just may find yourself wanting more.

Sure, Lakeview is awash in faux-Irish pubs. But Wilde raises the bar with an inviting space that, unlike many other restaurants in the area, is big enough that there's rarely a wait. Friendly service and comfortable surroundings welcome you to stay a while. Order up a Guinness and shepherd's pie.
