I've been to O'Lacy's a handful of times and both visits were great. I visited Ireland last year and entering this restaurant brought back all of our great memories. It's adorable inside and just like a real Irish pub! The service was great - we came in around 12:30am with a group of friends after hitting a few spots on... More

Stopped in yesterday for an early supper. The atmosphere is exactly as it should be, a quaint Irish Pub, not kitschy at all like some can be. Our waitress was very attentive and offered some suggestions to consider in addition to house specials of the day. My wife got the "Shepherd's Pie" and I had a Beef on Weck. We... More

A charming old country pub. Friendly staff, friendly locals makes this a fun place to visit. The food is very good Irish pub fare. I pass through Batavia at least once every year for the past eleven years and this is my eating an drinking establishment. There are always interesting people to visit with. It's a fun place.

A quaint Irish Pub on a side street in Batavia, NY. A neat place to meet for drinks with friends. They also serve lunches.

I have been to Irish pubs before, but this is one that is sure to never disappoint!! The bartenders are friendly, the waitresses are superb!! The Reuben sandwiches and home-made potato chips are why I wish I was IRISH!!! I have never been unhappy with any experience at O'Lacy's…so get your Irish butt (or not so Irish butt) down and...

Well if you are (sheepish, that is), don't worry, 'cause there is no mutton on the menu here. We have been stopping in at O'Lacy's on our occasional trips to or through Batavia for some years now. We obviously like it enough to keep gong back, and after yesterday's visit, I feel its time to expound. Neither wife or I... More

Love the Guiness pour and love the beef on wick (get the horseradish). The home made potato chips are light and delicious. Worth every penny. Yum and yummy, maybe even yummiest. Try O'Lacy's. You won't be disappointed.

Nice to visit one time for the atmosphere. The bartenders were outstanding, and sitting at the bar was wonderful. When we moved to a table, however, it was an entirely different story. The waitress was quite rude and impatient with us. The food was simply okay. HOWEVER, do not hesitate to stop in for a genuine Irish pub experience.

I've been to a few Olde World Pubs and when my GF suggested we take a break and visit O'Lacy's which she had been to before, it got my attention. In our travels together we love to frequent Bars and Grilles for the atmosphere and food. We are particularly fond of eating at the bar and getting to know the... More
