This place is full of surprises. Sometimes when you go to a restaurant you order what you think they do best. This place is different. If it's on the menu don't be afraid to try it. I waited way to long to try their pizza, what a mistake. Who would have thought an Irish Bar would have great pizza. The... More

A busy Friday night, but we were seated and waited on promptly. Found haddock Leone quite tasty, as was clam chowder. Brisk iced tea and warm, fresh dinner rolls. We hope to return.

This pub is a local favorite and a go-to-place with family or friends. It has its regulars and the owners always greet you warmly. It has a handicapped entrance and the wait staff is most solicitous to the "older" patrons. The meals are quite ample and the menu is varied. There is something for everyone.

O'Hara's has many virtues. It is lively without being noisy and the food iis tasty. But our pizza took 45 minutes to arrive, and we were very hungry. I was unhappy.

Run by the O'Hara family - has been a favorite spot in Newton Highlands for many years. Sandwich and draft beer - and do try their house made chips. And their pizza.

One of my go-to places to meet a friend for lunch (or occasionally dinner). The Irish pub decor led me to avoid O'Hara's for a long time, but its food is better than the typical Irish pub. Their entree salads are big, fresh and delicious. Burgers are excellent, too. Service is very friendly and responsive. No attitude. I especially like... More

I've been to this restaurant five times now -- each different order -- and each excellent food and service. Great value! The pizza was surprisingly delicious!

I have enjoyed many meals at O'Hara's Food & Spirits, but I have to say their pizza is one of the best for a specialty pizza. Yesterday we had a Salvatore pizza. Caramelized onions, sausage, ricotta and mozzarella cheese with a perfectly spiced sauce. The crust was just right, not too thick and just enough of every topping. The price... More

I have been to O'Hara's many times over the years for both in-house dining and take-out. It is pub food at it's best. Sumptuous burgers, great steak tips, juicy chicken dishes, and tasty pizza. The service is friendly and prompt. The new room in the back allows for more tables and shorter waits. And there's a lively bar scene with... More
