Average pub fare

I had the beef on weck and my friend got Shepherd's Pie. We split an order of garlic chips and each got a couple beers. The beef on weck was average. My friend's shepherd's pie was bland. She had to add butter and salt. Chips were good. Overall satisfied but nothing extraordinary.

This place is GREAT! Was here 3 times over 2 days. Great food, cold beer, friendly service, and cool atmosphere. Would recommend it to anyone in or traveling to Batavia.

Had dinner there with another couple 2 nights ago. Not our first time here. It's an Irish pub. Service is immediate from beginning to end. Waitress was fun, experienced and quite accommodating. The place was hoppin' and everybody was having a good time. Potato chips are home made and delicious, even more delicious when dipped in their Riveria dressing. Small,... More

Went here for a business lunch today, were seated promptly and service was quick and polite. Extensive Irish selections on menu too although I went with the lighter grilled Cajun chicken sandwich. Food was very good, water glasses always full, reasonable prices, had a good crowd for a Tuesday afternoon.

Mashed potatoes and Shepard's pie tasted like they dumped half a container of pepper in it and they served it that way! When we said something to our waitress she admitted it was a "bad batch" but didn't offer us another better batch or something different! It was my mother-in-laws birthday dinner and I was so embarrassed, she couldn't even... More

Having been to Ireland and in the most rural areas O'Lacy's is a traditional Pub - friendly, inviting and helpful. We drink Guinness often and in many places but no doubt a traditional pour makes it better and they do it as well as any and better than most - There is no better reason to check it out! We... More

We stopped for lunch with friends. I have to recommend the homemade potato chips with dipping sauce. Prices are reasonable and service is great. This is the perfect spot for a relaxing lunch. A hidden gem in Batavia!

The decor in this bar is hard to describe, but it is interesting. Everywhere you look there is something interesting to see. Combine that with the regular customers and the friendly service and you have got a fun place to be. If you like beer, they have won an award for a perfectly poured pint. I don't drink so I... More
