Love Jackie O's!! I suggest the Raz Wheat brew with their special Ruben (be sure to ask for it to be topped with their homemade coleslaw - you can thank me later). Art, the owner, is committed to using local vendors, farmers, and craftsmen from the food to the furnishings. This place will give you a true flavor of Athens.

My husband and I are were on a recent trip to Hocking Hills and decided to take a ride to Athens and check out Jackie O's. The place is great. The website said that there would be $2 beer specials, and to our surprise 3 awesome beers were on special for $2. It was very inviting and the waitstaff was... More

Great gathering place for friends and fellowship. Good service and friendly waitstaff make it a go-back-often venue where groups gather regularly to visit.

Delicious beers in various sizes with great bar service. Would recommend the Gose and Berliner Weisse if you like sour beers and the Maple Porter if you are looking for something darker and heavier. Cheers!

Had a great time here over Dad's Weekend at Ohio University with my son. I'd had Jackie O's beer before, but not on tap. The nitro tap made a HUGE difference on the stouts. It was creamy and delicious! Will definitely be coming back

Jackie O's is one of Athens' favorite success stories: a locally owned brewery & brew pub that uses local ingredients and bangs out some of the tastiest food & drink in the state! The fish tacos are an amazing addition to an already impressive menu. FYI the best burgers in town are found here & the pizza is worth every... More

My husband and I dropped by on a Saturday afternoon to get some lunch and we were not disappointed. He ordered the burger special and I had the chili dog special. Both entrees came out hot and were a large portion size. Even though the restaurant was packed, we still got good service and the price was very reasonable. The... More

When a hair comes in your daughters salad... It is expected that THAT part of the meal will NOT be charged for, and it wasn't, so that's fine... And yes, the waitress was apologetic, but the amount of time it took to replace a simple salad was way too long. We were not there while it was overly crowded (Sunday... More

We visited Jackie O's after touring Ohio University with my high school junior and so were hungry and thirsty and based on seeing good recommendations here on TA. Did not disappoint in terms of quenching our thirsts as great selection of beers to choose from for all tastes and styles and so downed a couple. Menu is more bar like... More
