Stumbled onto this pot of gold restaurant in the carrolwood area of Tampa Florida. We corded the cheese fries for our appetizer. which came out very hot and were tasty. Not bad prices on our glass of wine and our beer. My banger and mash were truly authentic Irish food. Nothing negative to say about this restaurant but only a... More

I never realized how badly racism can be until I put my foot in this place. I was with friends when my daughter and her black longtime boyfriend came looking for me to pick me up. With no justified reason whatsoever other than the color of his skin, the boyfriend got violently and physically assaulted by the bouncer. Not only... More

O'Briens' has a long tradition of being welcoming. It's Irish owner makes the pub authentic along with many of its' patrons. The pub inside is traditional and the Tiki Bar offers a party with sports. There is music for the "younger crowd". Sports minded bartenders ! The GUINNESS is excellent and lines clean

Being away from the Pittsburgh area, every game day we head to this amazing Irish pub. Great bar food and love the Emerald Isle sandwich which is a Reuben. Also like the chips and blue cheese. This is also a great place to celebrate St Patrick 's Day. Complete with Irish bands and Clogger dancers. Cover charge after 6:00 p.m

Chose O'Brien's because they are a Steelers establishment. Had to leave at halftime because of the tv reception. I realize that direct tv cuts out during storms but it was mostly cloudy, no storms. Great wings though. I'll be back for the food, Not for football.

Had a great time and the service from the staff was great. Not a big menu, but what was on the menu was very good.

I have been a fan for many years but was very dismayed to see how far down it has fallen since the founder passed away. The service is poor, the food quality way down and the overall atmosphere seems tired and unkempt.

We found the food and service to be very good, tasty and friendly. We wanted to get in and out for a quick meal and were able too. Good choice of beers on tap as well....

We walked into OBrien's Irish Pub on North Dale Mabry in Tampa and was instantly greeted by bartender-foodserver Kriss....... We ordered fried North Atlantic Cod fish with french fries and cold slaw (their fish and chips), a glass of white wine and a draft beer. The food was quickly served, hot and very tasty. This was a great luncheon experience... More

O'Brien's was very loud . That was surprising since there were only 8 people in the restaurant. My fish and chips had a crust so hard I could barely cut the fish. The fries were excellent. We probably won't go back.

Thank bren m
