Great food and atmosphere 9/30/2006

A unique, historic dining room is pleasantly separate from the also-friendly piano bar area. The food (we had fish, pork, lamb, and steak at our table) was excellent, and well complemented by a variety of bread. The calamari fritti appetizer was also exquisite. Our server was very attentive to our needs, and our glasses were always full. Creme brulet and ice cream were beautifully presented and delicious. Pros: Several different, special dining areas; patio open at least through September; food and desserts more

Good food and great outdoor seating. 9/29/2006

The food was very good (we ordered mainly burgers and chicken). THe wait staff was excellent and the bartender mixed great (ie potent) drinks and was hilarious (however, those without a sense of humor or insecure may not laugh). Pros: Great outdoor seating and good food more

arrogant little bartender 8/20/2006

who is the little napoleon-esque punk who tends bar here? tina? tony? the service here.....TERRIBLE. the prices here......TERRIBLE. if it weren't for the free-parking and great outdoor patio, obrien's would be GONE. somebody gonna get b!tch-slapped Pros: outdoors Cons: little punk who bartends and has a big mouth more

WORST BARTENDER SCAM EVER 8/16/2006

I went there last night and the bartender was unbelievably awful. Not only did he throw a bottle cap at my face (I am a girl!) but he overcharged us for drinks and wouldn't take them off our bill. The worst part came this morning when I checked my bank account and saw that he had taken my credit card slip and tipped himself an extra $20. It was truly unbelievable that this guy works in the service industry. I'm going today to see about getting my money back. Tony the bartender is a real piece of work... Cons: Service is TERRIBLE more

Old-time supper club in Old Town 4/10/2003

this is a classic dining experience-like a supper club from the 40's. traditional standbys like shrimp cocktails, caesar and iceberg salads, steaks and seafood. the garlic mashed potatoes are excellent-the creamed spinach you can pass on-bergoffs does it better. service is outstanding-prices are accordingly high. a nice old-town original. more

Outstanding! 2/19/2003

O'Brien's is a great traditional steak house. The atmosphere and surroundings are fantastic. The steaks are very tasty and very well done. The sides are great and reasonable. It is beyond me why O'Briens is not in the top ten and why Gene and Georgetti's is. Pros: great food, great sides, good atmosphere more

Spotty food and service 12/31/2002

I live in Old Town and this place runs hot & cold: food can be inspired or insipid, service can be downright awful or attentive. Getting noticed by a greeter is a time-killer. Best time to go is in summer when the outdoor area is open: sandwich menu is a pretty safe bet. Drinks are ok but pricey. Great location but unless they pay better attention to food & service I don't think too many people will keep coming back. Pros: Patio, Outdoor bar Cons: Inconsistent more
