Top three wings

Kirby's is a chill dive bar with a surprisingly good menu. My top picks are the Banging wings and french dip sandwich. If you on vacation its a good off night or rainy night spot just to get out.

Kirby's Pub is a great local spot in OC. Perfect for lunch with the kids or to grab a few drinks and watch the game. Good pub food and atmosphere. Staff is wonderful.

Don't let the menu fool you, the appetizers are good! We got a 1/2 pound of you peel 'em shrimp with old bay seasoning and onions for $5. It was a really good snack with some beers + margartas. Nice to go to a local dive instead of going to Seacrets every night.

And that is what Kirby's is all about! Not a lot of us drift trade there. So, here is the low down: We started out with a pound of jumbo shrimp with white onion, steamed with old bay! Excellent, excellent, excellent! I have a piece of tune that was done perfect with homemade potato chips fried in old bay. Again,... More

We ordered a few order of take wings because we heard they were excellent. We waited at the bar, and waited, and waited, and waited for both our first drink and the order of wings. The wings took so long we could have had 3 rounds of drinks if anyone was interested in waiting on us. It was not crowded... More

Super relaxed, great food and drinks, great service! Just what you need after a long day at the beach. Tucked away and realistic timing to get a table so my kids aren't driven to melt down mode. Perfect blend of local pub for adults and welcoming atmosphere for those with kids! We'll keep coming back!!!!!

Normally a huge fan of this little spot on Ocean Highway, my most recent visit was overshadowed by the poor service provided by a female bartender named Liz. Never have I had to, all n the same dining experience, ask for a second beer (when my glass was empty for quite some time), silverware, salt/pepper, and a pen to sign... More
