A lovely and lively Irish pub, this joint features Irish breakfast all day long, and is a go-to for lunch, sports, and a hearty dinner.

Editorial Review

If you're looking for that Cheers-like bar where everybody knows your name, O'Briens has your back. The friendly owner, Willy O'Sullivan, often works behind the bar when it gets busy, bringing cheer to the green-ceilinged establishment. There is Sunday trivia for regulars, and a countdown clock to St. Patty's Day for those who love the Irish holiday. Cocktails cater to men and women, with both sweet and bold choices.

Green ceilings and skylights bring light into this traditionally darker, authentically Irish pub. The real cheer, however, comes from the friendly staff and owner, Willy O'Sullivan, who banters with regulars from behind the bar. At O'Brien's, you will find what you expect from an Irish pub – Guinness, whiskey, green decor, and televisions. You will also find untraditional features, including an Irish breakfast served all day long, and extensive American weekend brunch menu, and two for one burger nights. In addition to their full bar, this place is known to make a mean Irish coffee all day long. On St. Patty's Day, you will find the same menu and drink line up as a typical day, though the venue will have stocked up in preparation for the crowds. According to owner Willy O'Sullivan, he will be drinking Red Breast Whiskey; he will also have a hefty supply of Guinness, Harp’s and Bass beers for sale. If you decide on this venue for the big St. Patty's Day celebration, get there early. The venue opens at 8am to accommodate the anticipated crowd. Their famous Irish breakfast is served all day; try it with a Black and Tan, as O'Briens is rumored to have a good one.
