I will be back!

Cold beer, locals type bar. Shrimp were steamed on a pile of onions right behind the bar… plump and delicious!

This is a small, friendly, family owned OC pub (bar). It can be loud and crowded. Not really a place for small children. There is only one booth, the rest are small high tables or bar stools. The steamed shrimp was delicious... great flavor and price. We also ordered a tuna melt. This was a disappointment. I have never heard... More

Kirby's is a great local bar in the 94th street plaza. Friendly bartenders and great food. The tuna melt is very good and so are the chips. When you go there, you have to get the steamed shrimp. It is the best on the beach! Worth every penny!

This place has the best bar food in O.C. It is small, but it is worth it. Happy hour drink are cheap too! Try anything with seafood and you will enjoy. Beware the ship are spicy, but a great price at Happy Hour!

Have been a few times. Always great to get the crabmeat by the pound. The wings are very good and very hot. Great happy hour priced drinks. Only downside is not much room and stools hurt your back after a while.

We visit at least once during our trips to OC. Lisa the bar tender is very cordial. We were there during Crusin' weekend and it was crowded at lunch. We had the lobster bisque (lots of lobster chunks) and a turkey burger (huge). The bisque was delicious and very thick, The burger was much larger than the bun and was... More

I walked into this place with two of my friends randomly. We had originally wanted some pizza, but for some reason chose to come here. We were far more than pleasantly surprised, this place was excellent. The service was extraordinary, the food was mouth-watering, and the atmosphere was relaxed, yet lively. I would highly recommend this place to any Ocean... More

You have to know what is good on the menu. I have had very good food and very bad food at this restaurant. Prices are reasonable, but I would prefer consistency. Last time there, I ordered a salad with grilled shrimp. The shrimp were good but the salad was drowning in cheese and dressing. I thought I ordered my dressing... More

Been going to Kirby's a little over 6 years now. Local favorite with lots of options. My favorite is the grilled tuna steak with crab dip on top. It is truly amazing as with the dip just by itself.

Thank David J
