Nice atmosphere inside. Very laid back brewery with good beer selection and a small bar menu. I had the fish and chips and a couple basic pilsners. The fish was good, the fries were okay. Reminded me of well done fair fries, which isn't a...More

Being previously unfamiliar with Jackie O's, I must admit I wasn't expecting a lot. It sounds like an Irish pub, not a full tilt craft brewery, and it's kinda far from what feels like normal civilization in a super rural college town of Athens, Ohio....More

The beer was very good but we were disappointed with the food. My first choice of a steak sandwich was not available, ran out of beef. I chose fish tacos instead and I was disappointed with the toppings, but the kale side was good.

Visited two nights in a row. It is that good. It is a brewery and makes my style of beer. The O'Hooleys Stout is their take on an Irish stout. Excellent stout. And their IPAs, wow cannot ask for much better. The only one I...More

The cheese curds were great. Looking through previous comments it seems 3 out of 4 love them, 1 out of 4 think they're bland. My only guess is the 1 out of 4 are used to "processed cheese product". They taste like real cheese. Fish...More

This brewery is great and the beers are fun and inventive! The place itself, however, is as generic as can be--kinda loud, cheaply 'rustic,' and basically undecorated. The food is solid, but nothing really interesting. I had the Athens burger, which was satisfying without being...More

My son and I visited Jackie O' during Mom's weekend and really enjoyed our time. Bartender John went out of his way to accommodate our visit.

We started with a couple of appetizers, the fried cheese curds with marinara and the reuben egg rolls. The cheese curds were greasy and almost tasteless, the marinara not much better. The reuben egg rolls were amazing, delicious! Based on how good they were, I...More

Unfortunately the only Motel close would be the Ohio University Inn on Richland Ave. It's about 3/4 of a mile from Jackies but easy walk and easy to get to. Jackies also has another location on Stimson Ave but it also isn't... More

Yes, minors are allowed. They have the best pizza and cheese curds you will find anywhere. Kids would love it.
