Popped in on a Saturday evening, was not crowded for a weekend night which made us wonder, but we enjoyed it. Sat at the bar and chatted with the staff, and ordered a few apps to go with our drinks. The crab cake was a...More

O'Brien's used to be a happening place. Stopped in at the bar at 9 pm on a Saturday night. Hardly anyone there. A horrible smell in the air -- vomit and too much bleach/old water? Dark and dingy. Luckily, bartender was attentive and drink was...More

O'Brien's was always a good spot for good apps, cold beer and great oysters. Haven't been there in a while but stopped in one day this week-thin crowd, shortly found out why. Ordered a beer and a shot of vodka. Beer was fine. Vodka was...More

Brunch was ok although my creme brûlée French toast was really good. Coffee was cold. Service was off. Asked if we wanted cream and sugar. Shouldn't you just bring it? No spoons to stir. Used my knife. Asked for refills. Thank God it wasn't crowded...More

I would give this place 3 1/2 stars if possible. I was looking for more of a fine dining place seeing as I had been frequenting the diner and quick food places during my stay here. O'Brien's is in an old building with a nice...More

I had high hopes for O'Brien's when we arrived. Although the restaurant shows its age, often this is a sign of good things. The oyster apps were excellent, nice and big and fresh. However, the cocktail sauce was bland, almost like ketchup. Our steaks were...More
