Authentic and Unpretentious Restaurant

There is something that continually and regularly draws me back to O’Sullivans Restaurant and Bar at noon. It’s a strange thing, as I have many restaurant choices during the day, including going downtown, to a myriad of second rate establishments to eat. So what makes me choose O’Sullivans... read more

This place is pretty basic or as they say where I come from, Slap, Bang, Wallop. The food is cooked, the beer is cold and the staff deliver it to you.......that's about it. No quality or finesse. At least there is some light in the place since they moved location.....it used to be as dark as hell. Got to tell... More

We have been regulars at O'Sullivan's since we started dating. Been married for seven years we'd often pick a table near the fireplace and enjoy prime rib dinner. A game of pool would round out the evening. Recently visited the new location which appears to be one third the size. There is more seating in a McDonald's restaurant. The new... More

Went for lunch, only 7 people there and left after not being served for 5 minutes. Even after the barista looked my way a few times.

Don't count on good service when you come here. I have been going to O'Sullivans for 3 years now and i have to say that in the last 6 months or so, the service has become terrible! I waited 30 mins for a beverage and when i approached the bartender to ask where my drink was, she ran in the... More

The food was delicious and the service was friendly and fast. I had the quesadilla with yam fries and both were delicious. It was a Saturday night as well.

I hope this doesn't sound too snobbish, but O'Sullivans is a lower middle-class pub. I've been there twice in the last few months. Both times I had to thread my way past several scruffy looking guys hanging around outside smoking. The tap beer was not at all good the first time; it was flat. After I complained they brought another... More

Group of us usually go there for a big reunion/birthday party. We always have a great time. It's a ilttle cramped when you get us all in but we make do. The last time we were there, the only disappointment I had was we weren't warned that the kitched was closing so we didn't get the chance to eat anything.... More

We went on a Friday, great service, great food. The waitresses were pleasant and "easy on the eyes". Actually met some some friends there that we still talk to. Fantastic Karaoke.
