Great place to meet afterwork with the crew. The prices are reasonable, nice space and always a mature crowd. The food is excellent and service is warm and welcoming.

O'Hara's - the former original PJ Ryan's - has a nice layout at the bar with plenty of tv's to watch the game. The pub grub is very good and reasonably priced.

Although O'Hara's has a limited menu, the food is really good but the service wasn't up to par.
