Lots of TVs but food only so so

Had a late dinner and watched the NCAAs. Naked fried wings were good; boneless wings not as good. The cheese fries were undercooked. The buffalo penne pasta was mediocre at best. On the good side the wait staff was attentive. For sports fans there are lots of TVs. Overall it was just OK.

We enjoyed the drink special and wings on a rainy Saturday night watching the ECU game on multiple screens. Great food, great service and great prices.

I manage to eat at Professor OCools about every Friday night with friends. It is a great place to meet and they always treat us well. The walls are covered in tv s so no problem finding your sports event. And the food, that is why I went...it great, fairly priced and typical sports bar food. My personal faves are... More

I've eaten there several times, it's very good. Wings (Champ style, especially) are solid, I highly recommend the steak sandwich. You can't get a better steak sandwich anywhere. Ribeye steak on a healthy sized roll? Yes, please! Service is average, atmosphere is typical of a local sports bar.

Not visible from Greenville Blvd but go find O'Cools. Six men out for a business lunch and from wings to great salads to awesome sandwiches the flavors jump out at you. Super waitress and great food--what's not to love. Typical Sports Bar decor but we went to eat and it was one of the best for lunch in Greenville. Six... More

Went to O'Cools to watch a game today. The waitress we had was terrible. I waited for my food order for about 15 minutes and she came by a said you had the chicken wings? I said no I had a hamburger. I ended up getting my burger 15 minutes later. Apparently she forgot my order. When I got my... More

Local family-owned sports bar that is a great place to eat. Large variety of food, good prices and friendly service. Many, many large screen t.v.'s to see your favorite team play. Try the Chicken Santa Fe which is served as a special some months, but always available. Love this sandwich. Wife loves the chicken tenders.

For a restaurant that has been here for years, you would think they would maintain, clean and update this place. Wings and sandwiches are good, many TVs for sporting events, but just run down. Seats don't have cushions, tables/chairs are worn and I don't even want to think about the carpet.

I love this place. Its an old school sports bar where the people watching the sports care more about the game than the table beside them. Great sports bar! Greenville's best

I know: if you are a rabid ECU fan, then Professor O'Cools is the place to be seen and to watch the games. You will certainly find a lot of fellow patrons dressed in Purple and Gold. But this is a bar and restaurant. First, the bar and service are great. That said, the food is plentiful but just not... More
