We decided to go here based on the great Trip Advisor rating - atmophere is great, fun decor and lots to see, our server was really good, attentive and friendly. Menu seemed OK - soup was much too salty, my salad was OK - Irish soda bread was not what I expected - looked more like average raisin bread....burgers and... More

If you're looking for the real thing O'Lacys is it. You won't find quesadillas next to the shepherds pie on the menu here. The best place to get a pint of guinness. The clicky bird is my favorite, don't miss the homemade chips and dip

My wife and I were in Batavia for the night and decided to check out this downtown pub. There were several people there for lunch and all seemed to be enjoying themselves. I had the shepherds pie and it was delicious. My wife had beef on weck, a western New York favourite, and she loved it. Very friendly staff.

We booked the outdoor seating area for a recent rehearsal dinner. What a wonderful atmosphere, great pub grub and a properly poured Guiness at just the right temperature! Their chips ar a local hit. Great wait staff, friendly and attentive.

My family has been enjoying olacys since it opened. The food is fast and delicious, the beer is always refreshing. But the workers are what sets this bar apart from the other bars. They are by far the most friendly and happy bunch in one place.

Visited with a business partner for an evening dinner. Table service was slow, but I was not too rushed. Shepard's pie which should be a given at an Irish dig, was adequate. It was bland, meat was beef only. I would go again since it bets Applebee's. Clean and nicely decorated. On a positive note, the bartender was friendly and... More

A smallish bar on School Street, that seat more than it look like. The food is terrific, and you must get the home made chips.

I have been to O'Lacy's many times. The food is great (especially the homemade chips) and there are lots of beer choices. The only complaint one might have is that it is often crowded and noisy but I guess that is to be expected in an Irish Pub. Sometimes they have music which makes for more fun.

Olacys is always a good choice. You can't beat the bartenders or the crowd. Me and my husband consider it home turf. Made plenty of friends there. Nice relaxed and homey. And I love the food. Get the chips with the homemade dip. Or my favorite the daily Harold. Top three in the country for the guinness pour. Cherrs
