This restaurant is clearly well known among the locals as the lot was completely full. We had burgers, which were delicious and fries. The burger was huge and not very expensive. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone traveling the area. One word of caution the parking lot is unpaved and could use a bit more light.

Owen O'Leary's is definitely underrated, as it is actually quite good. The food is flavorful, the portions are large, and the service is great. The atmosphere is a sort of "Cheers" vibe. The restaurant could use a few updates, however I feel that they are going for a "dive bar" sort of vibe. Great specials every night of the week,... More

Just like any 99 Restaurant, with standard sandwiches, salads, and fair-to-middlin' entrees. Big bar scene for area workers, also just like every 99, but beer and drinks are just OK. No special character is spite of the cutesy Irish name.

Yesterday morning, I heard about Beast Feast on the radio. It was the last day it was being held this year. With a menu full of exotic meats, it sounded very interesting. By evening, we were driving over an hour in rush hour traffic to reach this place. I'm happy to say that we were not disappointed. The Beast Feast... More

Been to the older (original one) many times through the years-good and no so good--Just recently went back- food is better and service is good. Tried the new (second) one down the road and service wasn't that great. Drinks were good.

The new location is the one we've been to twice. I'd say the 3 1/2 stars listed are about right. I put forth, as I'd go there before some others. I think it ranks about the same as the 99 for me. I got the guinness fish and chips both times, the kids ice creams (w/ nilla wafers) were a... More

When we arrived there was nobody around to seat us so we walked in. Employees walked right past us. We went back to the entrance and waited a few minutes. It was puzzling because there were people eating at tables, and lots of tables open. I wonder how much business they might lose this way. We almost left, but tried... More

At Owen O'Leary's you can get almost any type of pub food that you crave. Great burgers, sandwiches, pizza and entries like the steak tips. Very friendly servers and managers. We are regulars.
