Great salads, burgers and fries. Love this place. Have eaten there many times over the years and have never been disappointed. Especially nice when you can sit outside.

Steak overdone; no bread served with the meal and Romain salad felt like bagged. Server tried; took the steak off the bill.

We love this place. Always good food and good service. Fun atmosphere. Nice to sit outside in summer and cozy indoors in winter.

Jake O'Connors offers so very underrated food offerings. The brussel sprouts are fantastic and the soft pretzel bun is a perfect match with their cork corned beef. The outdoor sidewalk seating offers a good outdoor dining option. The service was fast and friendly.

I ordered the Tenderloin and Chevre which was all noodle and virtually no beef - quite disappointing I would never order again. Others ordered fish and chips and both parties thought they were good. .

The place is decorated very cool for an Irish Pub! We got the Fish and Chips and it was very good! The Tartar Sauce was amazing and tasted home made! The service from our waiter was ok, that is the reason for the 4 stars!
