I was a little disappointed on this visit. I ordered corned beef and cabbage. It came with red potatoes and carrots. Corned beef was done but everything on my plate was not hot. The potatoes were done but so cool that the butter did not melt. The carrots and cabbage was undercooked. We also had an order of shepherds pie... More

So hard to find a place in the USA for the proper Guinness but this Public House fits the bill, nice slow pour! The best lamb stew I've had this side of the Atlantic as well. Laid back with an authentic feel, appeared to be a local hang out for the over 50 crowd, so I fit right in!

Stopped for lunch and this has been my 20th or more time of eating here. Food, is good and at a reasonable price. Soup is homemade and sure to please. The ambiance is a step above a bar/ restaurant with a good wait staff including one of the owners.

If you want to feel a little of home cooking, this is the place. From meat loaf to pot roast to salmon, this is a great place. Food is always really good and the Bar is always busy.

My husband and I met some friends for drinks and dinner -- it was our first time for all of us at O'Sullivans so weren't sure what was good.... Turns out-- everything we ordered was great!

We stopped here for a Friday fish fry, as we try to find some place different every week. We tried to get here a few months ago, but couldn't find a parking spot, as it was so busy. This time we got a table within ten minutes, as we got lucky. My sweetie ordered the cod and the server talked... More
