I love the bar and the food at O'Malley's! It is positively the best food in Sylva! Definitely try the Catamount Burger!

When I was in college and soon after, O'Malley's was the "go to" hangout to have a few drinks. Only recently I've discovered (after visiting with friends) that they actually have pretty good food. The Fried Green Tomato BLT and Dublin sandwiches are personal favorites, but avoid the chips and salsa (the salsa isn't good... almost marinara-like when we had... More

We were meeting friends there and sat at the bar. We were there about 10 minutes and no one waited on us. Some guy came in and sat two chairs down from us and was waited on immediately. We left and will never return!

When we lived here, this was a regular hang out for us. Great selection of draft beers and hard ciders. Lively, fun group always hanging out in the bar or in the restaurant area with lots of TV's. AWESOME burgers, wings and home made potato chips. Service is always great and there's kareoke on Wednesday and Friday nites. Always a... More

This is the second time we have visited. The first time was for drinks but the service was so friendly that we returned for lunch. Had the Philly cheesesteak sandwich with onion rings. They looked frozen but tasted great. Definitely a place for locals. Seemed like the barmaid knew everyone sitting at the bar. That being said, we were made... More

Love the half price apps and entertainment! Service is better in the summer but the bands in the fall and outdoor seating is always nice.

We came in with a group of over 20 and were treated very well! Good food, great drinks! Servers were very friendly and helpful and were not overwhelmed by our large group!

Stopped in just for some drinks. Seems like a cool locals hangout. Didn't eat anything on this trip, but we will return. Like the quirky layout of the place.

Have been going to Sylva for years, but never stopped by as thought it would be typical bar food (i.e. frozen), went last weekend and what a surprise! My husband loved the wings - said the sauce was one of the best he has had - would certainly come again. I had the club sandwich - it was huge. Greek... More

O'Malley's is a great Pub to visit with friends, out having a good time. They have an extensive beverage list, and alcohol. So, they'll make anything you like. Wednesday night, is Karaoke night, and is usually packed with a lot of college students, so be aware. The food is average, but the atmosphere is fun and exciting.....a great place to... More
