Went for the perch, stayed because the waitress was slooow!

Two orders of perch dinner and a couple of sodas. The food was good but took forever. We both wanted more tartar... read 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

When your boating all day or out and about at the Nautical mile this is one of better places to go. Drinks arent watered down food is good, always seems to be busy but get you in and out pretty qucik. I like the fact it has an outdoor bar and places to eat

The waitress was nice, but our dinners took forever to come and was so-so tasting. Absolutely no apologies or reduction in the bill. Do not plan to return.

We consider it a rite of passage for summer to sit on the patio on a warm Saturday night and enjoy the cold beer and awesome perch! Very good coleslaw, too! Server was attentive and friendly!

My wife and I visit POB's at least once a month for a fill up on Fried Perch and "Best Ever" Tarter Sauce...never been disappointed. Service is good...young women who are always smiling. The kitchen is prompt on all nights other than Saturday when things can get a little hectic...but the bar drinks are really cold and large so the... More

The food is of exceptional quality for a bar. Everything I've tried has been solid. Has the feel of a neighborhood pub, regulars and staff both very nice and welcoming.

The service is always really good, waitresses sweet, friendly and attentive. I am still longing for the Smelt of a few years back. They were plump, lightly breaded and plentiful. Now, smallish, a bit greasy and wished I had a few more. Fun place, good TV's even in dining room. Wish they had better house wines, but a great neighbor... More

You can't beat the perch at Pat O'Brien's. Be it Summer or Winter, they're the best around. The service is friendly, the food very good and I recommend it to friends and family.
