We have gone to Pub 56 for quite a few years many times but never again. My daughter was there and ordered wings. She got her order and one that had the feathers etc was still on it. The waitress offered a new order. She...took it but threw it in the garbage. When she called the manager the next day she was totally rude. She told her that it was what they cook from the distributor. Doesn't the cook or waitress even check what they are serving.More

The food here is fantastic, especially the wings and any of the pizza or sandwiches. The beer selection is amazing, and very good specials! The service can be on and off in terms of fast, but they are always very friendly. Delicious and always a...favoriteMore

We stopped in after grandson's game was rained out. Crazy busy, but we got the last table, seated by a friendly young gentleman. Danica was our server and she was awesome! Friendly, but quick - she did a great job. Even our food runner was...accommodating. Food was tasty. They had us in and out and on our way home in less than an hour! When our boy plays in the Aurora area again, this will definitely be our go to place!More

Pub 56 food is good bar food. Great burgers and boneless wings. They have a wide selection of beers. Wait staff is always pleasant and efficient. Great for a casual walk out

We haven't been at this restaurant for a while but were greatly surprised on how friendly and efficient our waitress Rachel was . The food was also very good. We will definitely come back in the future.

After touring FermiLab about three miles away, we landed here mostly because my best buddy enjoys beer and appreciates a broad range of choices. Watch out because the restaurant is in a very long strip mall with few entrances. You can easily miss one and...overshoot. Limited parking out front is shared with other venues in the mall but there's more parking around back. My buddy ordered an Alaskan ale he'd previously consumed at the Alaska brewery (!) and a Cuban sandwich. I got their Hickory Bacon BBQ burger and a diet cola. We use these Buddy Day lunches as time to catch up with each other's lives once a month and this lunch was no exception. The waiter was patient and gave us the time we needed on both ends of actually eating. Even though I ate my burger upside down (the proper way to prevent the bottom of the bun from disintegrating from natural juices and toppings), my burger was so moist that juices still dripped onto the plate. The bacon was crisp and the onion strings on the sandwich provided extra flavor. I was served extra BBQ sauce on the side which I used for fry dipping. The amount of fries was mediocre. I almost swapped in onion rings for an extra $1.50 but was glad I didn't, expecting I'd have only gotten a few. BTW, their onion ring side dishes (small and large) are not on the menu! Our waiter provided two bills (very nice) and refilled my soft drink twice without being prompted (which says his customer radar was working well). I'd go back and maybe try the onion rings instead of those fries.More

My wife dragged me to the Aurora outlet mall this past weekend. After she shopped till I dropped, we stopped by Pub 56 to eat before hitting the interstate to go home. I was very surprised by the menu, which was more extensive than the...typical bar and grill. I ordered beef brisket and some of their special fries (I think they were called Sidewinder Fries?). It wasn't a sandwich, it was beef brisket, served with barbeque sauce on the side. It was hot and tender and the fries were crispy and hot. I was a happy man. My wife enjoyed her meal. I will make this a regular stop. She will never have to force me to go to Aurora again. :)More

NOT EVEN 1 STAR!!!!! IT SHOULD BE NO STARS!!!!! Please don't go there! The worst service I have ever had in my life and I've never ever been treated so poorly at a restaurant!! From the owner Sal, the manager Angel and on down to...the worthless, lying waitress, some of the rudest people I've ever met. My fries were served cold and I had the nerve to ask for hot ones, then when my husband tried his chicken dish (which looked like it should never had left the kitchen) it was dried out and disgusting. The owner came over and basically told us we were wrong for complaining. I asked him if he would want to eat what we were served. Anyways. I will never go back and I would highly recommend that you don't go there. Any where would be a better choice!!!!More
