Fun summer restaurant but needs a makeover

My family and I moved to St.Clair Shores ten years ago and Pat O'Brien's has been a restaurant we have visited many times. In recent years it seems they are in need of a make over. . The food is Ok but not great. O'Brien's has an excellent beer selection. The decor is very dark and the restaurant... read more

I had been here once before and kinda liked it. I wanted to give it another shot instead of a "chain" steak house. I got 6 guys together and sat out in their patio area. After a couple beers we order and it was great. I had Walleye, great, another guy had pan fried lake perch - great. A couple... More

I've been frequenting Pats for many years as did my parents before me. traditional freshwater fish including Perch, Walley and Smelt prepared for you with maybe a Guiness. It does not get much better.

If you like perch this is the place. People and restaurants know about this place in Kalamazoo. Great to watch Tigers on Patio on Nautical MIle. Good service but The Best Perch anywhere. Highly recommend it

The pecan crusted walleye is really tasty and enough for two people. The perch dinners are just "ok" . Dinner salads are full of greens. Typical bar, long waits on Fridays. Not the most attentive wait staff, but they hustle around that place.

Best chicken tenders on the planet. No Joke! I love chicken tenders & most places they are just average at best but these are hand breaded and are super. My friends & I tell every body that ever mentions Pat's that they have to try the tenders on there next visit. I actually crave them.

Went there on Sunday after a concert. Not busy, maybe 20% full. The service was horrific. The waitress was friendly enough but this 'quick' meal took almost 2 hours. Had to ask multiple times for water. Food took forever from the kitchen. Same for drink orders to be delivered. Appetizer was good. Reuben sandwich was good. Fish order (smelt) was... More

There were only 4 other people in the restaurant as we don't like the lunch time rush and tend to go out after 1pm or so. Slow and inattentive but pleasant waitress took care of us. Two orders of perch dinner and a couple of sodas. The food was good but took forever. We both wanted more tartar sauce and... More

The perch is of the best that we have had, but it is not cheap. We were very surprised how slow the service was. The server was very polite and pleasant, but we had to wait and wait for drinks and food. She did not seem to be overstressed, so it was a surprise to us that every request took... More
