Had a friend visiting from out of state, and she wanted to try this place. I'd never heard of it, so was eager to try something new. Several traditional irish-style dishes on the menu. We each ordered shepherd's pie. Thankfully it was Americanized and wasn't made with kidneys, etc.! However, it was quite greasy and didn't have a lot of... More

My girlfriend and I frequent this pub. We both love the food and the atmosphere. Always a great experience, whether we are going for a full "sit down" dinner or just for an appetizer on Wednesday nights for music, we always have a great time. Great food, great owner, and great staff!

The shepherds pie was amazing. And the atmosphere was perfect for our Monday night anniversary dinner. Lisa's service and attention was perfect as well. Definitely be back to try out other items!

This is a very friendly place from the Manager to the Wait Staff. The service was prompt and very helpful with the menu. The Black Bean soup is delicious. The Corned Beef and Cabbage is a classic and prepared perfectly. They even offered me a chance to join the trivia game they were playing near the front of the restaurant.

This pub should not be overlooked in downtown Janesville. it has very nice ambience, a very good selection of food and drink - and the best Irish Stew I've ever had.

Best Irish food we have had in a really long time. We don't come to Janesville often but we will now just so we can get our Irish fix. The food was delicious and our waitress Diane was outstanding.

Our visit to O'Riley's was very enjoyable and we intend to go back often. They offer a varied and inexpensive wine list. The appetizer menu is impressive and the dip we had delicious. The service was impeccable and the waitress told us about a wine special which brought the cost our visit down.

This is the best bar in Janesville. The food is excellent (especially the Irish Stew and Shepherd's Pie). Also, they have a great selection of beer.

We had a group come for drinks and dinner in the new side room. They handled our large group with great service. People were there from all over the country and they loved the food and atmosphere. Great selection of food and drinks
