First of all you have to be comfortable with the self service in a restaurant. At O'Neil, you find your own table, you manage to get menus and you get in line somewhere to get your food. Cooked or sandwiches. Don't stay at your table and stare at the waitress, she won't come to see you and it is ok... More

The atmosphere was great with 50ish beers on draught to try. We were also surprised that the food was great, very generous portions and reasonably priced. I enjoyed the corned beef so much I'm going to have a go at making it at home ( it is NOTHING like tinned corned beef) We went twice because we enjoyed it so... More

This centrally located Irish pub offers tasty and authentic local dishes. It isn't table service, you take your tray to the counter where the staff fill your plate with food. The portions are very large as they literally pile on the vegetables. You can also grab a pint with your food before finding a table. I enjoyed the turkey and... More

We tried the carvery here and enjoyed our food . Portions were generous although not everything on the menu was available. The only drawback was the shortage of seating -it was Friday night though. If you want Irish food with a good atmosphere, this is the place for you .

My wife and I went for dinner and for the music one weekday night and found O'Neils to be a pleasant pub with typical "Pub Grub" and music. Because the musicians wer upstairs and we were downstairs, it wasn't as nice as we had hoped. The bar is divided into many small rooms with the PA system in all of... More

Quantity barely ever makes up for the quality. Thats what i have to say about this place. HUGE portions but the quality of the food is not that great. I ordered Irish Lamb Stew - but there was no sign of lamb in the stew. I had potatoes, potatoes and some more potatoes. This place makes sense if you are... More

In 2011, spring break for the grands, first-night dinner here at O'Neill's -- partly because friends at home are O'Neills -- what a happy find! Read the menus (on boards), survey the lineup, grab yer tray and enjoy! The food is delicious, the menu is large and varied enough for everyone to find something appealing, and then the adventure is... More
