Nice Irish pub with great Guinness Stout on tap.

The fish & chips are authentic and the pub is very Irish. The Guinness Stout is great from the tap and the place is classic. I have only been here one time, but I will visit here again.

This once was a nice place to eat and hangout, but the new owners have completely ruined the place. I have given this place chance after chance to improve, but it has only gotten worse. How do you take the most successful restaurant in Ouray and ruin it so fast? Good thing they don't make the beer, or they would... More

My husband and I visited Thursday (2nd) with our 6 yr. old grandson for an early dinner! Tracy, our waitress, was very friendly and very accommodating with our curious talkative grandson! The food was very good. (We had a Reuben, corned beef I& slaw, red pepper bisque and the kids meal chicken tenders-2 large chicken strips.) The drink menu was... More

Traveling through Ouray from Junction and wanted to grab a meal, so we decided pub fare would be it. Very disappointed in O'Briens, maybe because it's still the off season, but only 1 sever in the whole place - and he was also the bartender. Service was poor and the food was average at best. Won't be back.

The food was just okay, I have had the worst stomach ache for the rest of the day, will not be going back. The service was very poor. We were treated as we inconvenience her to wait on us.

My friend and I arrived after several other restaurants were closed for the evening, and were pleasantly surprised all around with O'Brien's. The bartender (?owner) was extremely welcoming, patient, and friendly. The atmosphere was clean and festive, and the food was absolutely delicious. We'll be back!

A great place to stop for fish and chips and a Guinness or a Black and Tan. The bar maids and bar tenders know the proper way to draw a Guinness and how to do a Black and Tan. No matter if the occasion is returning from a mountaineering or skiing trip or going to the theatre, this is the... More
