Went her with a group of friends for a late dinner. Had never been before, and did not know what to expect. Parking in the back. Kind of a local hangout very basic but people were nice. Only one waitress and the place was full so service was slow but not her fault. Had burgers and sandwiches with fries, food... More

Fast forward a few years later and here I am still singing my heart out on Saturday night karaoke at the back table with... More

Danny O's Downtown is now closed. The owner retired and moved out of state, although his brother is still running the River Rd Danny O's. The picture attached to the name and address above is for Downtown Danny O's, not the River Rd restaurant. New owners will soon be opening the downtown restaurant under a new name, with new interior,... More

been there two times now, tried buffalo shrimp- was overcooked, lightly burnt, and was oily. The next time I tried buffalo chicken wings, wings were very oily, and actually tasted of oil instead of the buffalo sauce. The beers are good, but I found them a little pricey, as was the items on the menu. The waitresses are pleasant, and... More

Usually stop in about once or twice a week for food and beers. The addition of the outdoor patio is a great attraction in the summertime. The Green Room, located upstairs is perfect for private parties, we actually have our Fantasy Football Draft here every year. As for food, the major nachos are gigantic, and more than enough for two... More

We usually go on weekends to get ourselves some good eating buffalo wings!!!! Also get the best french fries, crispy and ceasar salad!!!!....During the summer days, weather permitting, the roof opens up and/or the garage door goes up and can sit outside......the atmosphere isn't the greatest, but it's outside!!!!

The food here was really good. However, when the restuarant/bar is smelly and dirty, you kinda worry about the kitchen. The "furnishings" are worn and crusty. Yet, the food was good. I guess they care more about the bar crowd.
