O'Neil's on Wells is a great bar in the south loop next to the Chicago Board of Trade. The drinks are excellent, and the staff is very friendly. It's a great place to go for happy hour with a large group...

I give it 5 stars for the simple fact that this place has always gotten me wasted w/o wasting so much money. This was our Thursday hangout. The owner let me go behind the bar one night to mix shots for my friends and I believe because we were such a huge group...

Went to O'Neil's on Wells after my girlfriend and I watched the dying of the Chicago River. My girl friend and I über over there. Rumor had it that O'neils was going to have Irish bagpipers performing on top of the bar at 2pm...

I remember when this place first opened back in the 70's in the middle of skid row right behind the Board of Trade... Before there was an Options Exchange. Bernie Alcock was a real pistol.
