Great beer and ambience

Jackie O's is right in the heart of town in Athens. It initially appears to be a relatively small brew pub, but opens up in the back to a large, open-air venue with plenty of seats. It was raucus the night we were there -- the Cleveland Cav's had won their third playoff game against Atlanta. The... read more

Amazing find by an old guy in a college town! Wonderful brewpub, great variety of beers and solid food offering. The "basic" atmosphere makes this a great place to sit back and remember when you were in school! Make it stop on your brewpub journeys. Bob Greenwood IN

We went here on a Thursday night, and got lucky with a seat at the bar. Like other reviewers mentioned there are no cocktail waitresses and only 2 bartenders. If you don't get a seat at the bar you will have to keep running up to the bar for drinks. Seemed like people standing around the bar were waiting awhile... More

Jackie O's is located in downtown Athens Ohio, neat the University. I had been here a year ago and the food, beer and wait staff were wonderful. Fast forward to May 2015 and the news is completely different. Now in their defense, there was a massive fire in the neighborhood and they lost their main kitchen and dining area. However,... More

I went here to see if they had the Cleveland Cavaliers game playing and they did. I also have had there beers before and they are good. The greatest thing about this place is that one can always get their Firefly Amber Ale for just $2/pint! That is a great deal. Jackie O's is the closest thing I have seen... More

A great place for some excellent brews, friendly service, and good food. The Pesto Pizza is a must-try, as are the fried curds. Best time of the year? When it is hot outside and the Patio is alive. I'd also try their other location off Simson; same brew, smaller crowds. Give it a shot the next time you are passing... More

We can't stop in Athens without coming to this place at least once. Good selection of in house beer and the appetizers and pizza are perfect every time.

Jackie O's is what you should expect in a college town - nothing fancy, reasonably priced food and beverage, and an early-20s vibe. Jackie O's delivers on these expectations. The locally prepared brews are very good and worth trying. We just dropped in for a quick visit so we did not order a meal. However, we did order a cheese... More

We love coming to Athens for a football or basketball game. Last month when we came, Jackie O's didn't have there kitchen ready yet so we were happy to hear it was when we were in town last week. We have had good experiences in the past here but this time the food was bad. We both ordered burgers. The... More

I enjoy the friendly atmosphere and the possibility of running into my doctor or a professor. The selection of micro beers, especially their own is tough to beat. I have heard good things about the live music. This is a place loved by the community, a little too much by college students.
