We used to come here when it was O'Hooleys, and we loved it. We're bummed that O'Hooleys is gone, but this is a decent alternative. The beer is good, and it has a good, low-key vibe.

I had the best burger in my life here. Perfectly cooked as ordered,nice crisp bun, fresh, flavorful tomato slice. Between that and the Jenni's salted caramel ice cream, a wonderful meal.

Jackie O's is a great place to hang out and enjoy some locally produced beer. Check out Firefly or mystic mamma. They have great indoor and outdoor seating options. Patio can be a little smokey at times, but it the perfect place to chill on a cool summer evening. You can enjoy live music on particular nights of the week.... More

This is my go-to place when friends visit from out of town. Good food and great craft beer. The Pesto pizza and fish n chips are my favorite. Jackie O's is great because they always have a different beer selection, but it also kind of stinks for that same reason. I will fall in love with a new beer and... More

The beer is the big draw here for craft beer drinkers and it's obvious why when you have a glass. There are so many different options and all of them are great. The food is top notch using mostly all local ingredients and sources. Everything is so fresh here. You've got to try the pizza!

Very interesting beer selection here reminds me of a Clint Eastwood movie....The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. Fish and chips are tasty as is their pizza. Service could be improved. Seated at the bar, no problem. Table with friends during the middle of the afternoon, over 15 minutes for 4 pints of beer to find their way to the... More

Had a group of 6 planning to go the the Union. Although the Union looked great it was a little smaller and TV's were limited. Walked next store to Jackie O's it was a little brighter, although still dark, several TV's and a little bigger. Beer was great, waiter made excellent recommendation. Food was very good. Fish and Chips, Rueben,... More

This is the only microbrewery in Athens. They have three locations in the area, with the Public House and Brewpub being the most popular. Their draft beer list is continually changing, with lots of intriquing beers (with equally intriquing names). The beer is quite good and most of them are only available at Jackie O's - but that's ok because... More

I've lived in Athens for almost 8 years, and Jackie O's is one of the treasures! There are two "sides" or rooms that are connected by an great open-air outdoor patio. The "new" side has a very warm atmosphere. The food is much better than average "bar" food, using fresh, local ingredients. The pizza is just awesome! Their locally brewed... More

This was our second visit to Jackie O's and the second time we had pizza. It is a nice, thin-crust pizza. We tried both the Neanderthal and one of the veggie pizzas. I am not a beer drinker, both those in our group did enjoy the brews.
