This is our favorite spot for our September anniversary. When I have guest from out of town, I always bring them to Irish town and stop at O'Shea's. They love it.

So many choices! After a few, we ordered their 'Lamb Stew' and 'Fried Green Tomatoes'. Both were great. For the entre, Scottish Salmon (I thought Ireland had salmon, too??) which came w/ fried greens and grits (fancy). The salmon was the best Atlantic Salmon I've had. Sides and waitress were great, too.

O'sheas really feels like an Irish Pub. The wait staff is super friendly. Guinness is on tap and poured just right. They also have a very healthy menu of specialty brews! Some are really unusual and tasty. My husband and I like the half order (plenty for one) of fish n' chips--he likes the European style beer battered, I like... More

Have been to Louisville many times, arriving late and hungry. They offer a good selection of food & drink. Fried chicken is excellent and large enough to get two meals.

Stopped here for a late lunch/snack before a concert and the food was good but drinks were some the best. I ordered a Old Fashion and I will say it was the best I ever had. I would highly recommend trying one. If you're not a big eater consider splitting a plate the portions are large. They might be the... More

I like the friendly and lovely staff of O'Shea's and the manager was so nice that side he knew my dad he offered to have a "field day" to fund my family to help pay for my mom's medical bills because she was deathly ill with cancer. And you may have noticed if you looked into my history that I... More

First of all you have to start with a Grasshopper! Then the fried Fish with fries is killer! Get a full order. Enjoy the relaxing outdoor courtyard. Wonderful!
