Lots of good experiences here over the years, but how about a special to give a normal amount of fries with an order. I have been coming out for years due to the vball league and other random nights, ...but honestly now we legitimately look for other places to eat before our games and for other spots on the weekends. Fries are one of the cheapest damn food items for a restaurant to provide, but that seems to be where you are the skimpiest for some reason. I have heard many teammates and random ppl next to us complain about the exact same thing for the past several years. In despite of the smaller portions, the prices for a sandwich (and about 10 fries) still continue to rise every year. You have the best beer garden in Bloomington, but the best beer special on a week night that you can offer is $8.25 domestic pitchers. So much untapped potential ruined by terrible portions, pricing, and crappy specials. I want you to be better, and know you can be, which is why I wrote this review. I just hope you can realize the problems you have and can make adjustments to be better. Maybe some of us will come out on other non-league nights again then. Thank you. See More

Well, let me see where to start,, I was asked what I wanted to drink, said water right now, waitress pointed to a pitcher of water and plastic cups @ the end of the table. So later I ordered cheese fr...ies 🍟, when that same waitress brought them she had no idea where they were to be delivered! Had to say hey!! Those are mine! When I got ready to leave , had to get her attention to get a check! There where several people at this long table eating and drinking 🍻 but I didn't seem to be a priority to her 😡👎 See More

Got a to-go order from Gill Street for lunch today.
Good news - Gill Street Burgers were very good.
Bad news - the go-withs were not good. We opted for the pub chips (poor) and the onion tanglers (ag...ain poor but promising - these were mostly small pieces - how do I dip these in ketchup and eat them ?) I've eaten several of your appetizers and found them to be tasty and easily eaten. The go-withs that we ate need to be brought up to the level of your appetizers.
Again, the burgers were wonderful - the go-withs were not wonderful. Staff were excellent.

What a great place! Good bar food and great drinks. Friendly, attentive waitresses (Shout out to Bridget and Claire!) excellent live music! Will be a regular stop when I'm in Normal.

Can I give less than 1 star... you know what's bad for business? Let me tell you. . When 2 individuals walk into a bar that says they are open til 1am before 11pm on a random Tuesday night ...doors ar...e unlocked and you go out back to find employees drinking and smoking who knows what and greeted with sorry ladies we are closed for the night.. yeah won't be back.. if you wanted to close early fine... Lock the damn doors then plain and simple instead of being upset because paying customers were intruding on your good time!! Won't attempt there ever again!!! See More

Girlfriend was at work so I decided to walk over and give it a try. Sat at the bar and had excellent service. I ordered the chicken cordon bleu sandwich and it was the best I've had in years (chicken ...cordon bleu in any form is my favorite food.) I will definitely be back. See More

We have been coming to Gill Street many times for the last couple of years playing volleyball in the summer. Their food? Awesome. Beer? Beer is good. Their service? It sucks. When you have to physical...ly leave the table and walk up to your server to order, what's the point of having a waiter/waitress? Also, when you make eye contact with someone and they COMPLETELY IGNORE YOU. Many times I was trying to get my servers attention (because our drinks were empty....and we wanted another round....which means more money for the business....which means more money in the tip, right?) and he completely ignored me. What's the point of being at work if you aren't going to do your job. I feel that Gill Street could really invest in either a) retraining their servers/waitresses or b) hiring new people who are willing to do the job they've been hired to do.

Our servers name was Christopher. Christopher was terrible tonight. Sorry sir. I don't know if you're having a bad day or what, but for real. Get. It. Together.

I get it. I've been a waitress. Many times, for many years. Sometimes it really sucks.

Why bother showing up if you're not going to be helpful in any way?

Great place to sit outside and enjoy the evening, but it's the short pour capital of Bloomington/Normal. Several months ago we had a DD set up - $160 later, we walked out completely sober. Some frie...nds spent $120 there on a different night that we were there - same thing. Last night one person in the group went back up to the bar to ask them to add some alcohol to their drink because there was very little in it. They added a bit more to the top, then when we got our bills they noticed an extra $3 for the extra alcohol. I watched and counted a 2 second pour on multiple occasions this summer. Go for a nice evening sitting outside, but stick to beer. They can't short pour those. See More

Pretty nice place. Their Cuban Sandwich is very good and since we were there at a very unbusy time, the grandkids enjoyed playing sandlot volleyball. I never did get my sweet potato fries but the beer... was pretty good and it was still pretty good experience. See More

Stopover in Normal on our way to WI. Great food, good drinks, quick service, quiet but we were there at 8 pm on a Sunday. Will definitely go back next year on our annual trip north.

Service and food was mediocre...I've had better.

A little pricey but definitely worth it. Great atmosphere and far enough away from the university campus that you don't have to deal with obnoxious drunks (usually). The food is surprisingly good for ...it being oriented more towards a bar setting. The outdoor area can't be beat! See More

The food was terrible. Rotten lettuce is a salad and wrap and the most tasteless fries imaginable. Come for a beer but skip the crappy food.

Could be a great bar. But it's not. Great outdoor patio with sand volleyball. Prices are very high for average tasting food and drinks. If you're looking to watch football they will let people play th...e juke box over the sound of the game so I would skip Gill St. on Sunday's. Brought family there twice and both times the service was extremely slow. Spent more time talking to each other than their tables. Not sure how there are so many 5 star votes. See More

May be time to figure out a way to upgrade the sand courts or increase size to put in more courts To make more money on volleyball players!

The grown-up grilled cheese made me feel really grown-up. The waitstaff were friendly and then there's the volleyball. Awesome. Love me some Gill St!

The price of my favorite Scotch Whisky (Dahlwinnie 15) went up from $6 to $9 and I found out when I got my check. So why is this price change not posted anywhere? And how do you think you can justify ...Baxter's prices without a major remodel? See More
