Found this place by accident and the pub atmosphere is great. Our party enjoyed the Guiness and the selection of other beers. Was there for lunch and the menu looked great, Fish & Chips, Bangers and Mash, lots of selections that reminded me of the home country, except... If you are an Irish pub, then Fish & Chips means fish... More

We have never been to Ireland but a friend of our who has says this place is alot like the pubs in Ireland. We love to come here for the atmosphere and they have good beer. The food is pretty good but on the salty side, as is most Irish food in just about any Irish Pub. This is our... More

O''Riley's is another example of the friendly corner bars, with great food, that you can find throughout Wisconsin. I visted ib a recebt Tuesday for lunch with friends. Started with an appertizer service of breaded mushrooms. I love mushrooms of all varieties and styles of cooking, these shaved and breaded mushrooms, served were outstanding. For lunch, I had the Glasgow... More

Very comfortable, we go here a lot. Live music, Mondays are my favorite. Good food, a bit pricey and service is usually pretty good. I wish that they had cakes from our local bakery, LoriAnna's Sweetilfe. Great wine and beer selection.

Found this place on a day trip to Wisconsin and stopped in for lunch. Great atmosphere! And what a selection of beer! We had a Michael Collins Club (I've attached a picture...and that is only half the sandwich), Toasted Cheese with bacon and tomato and fish and chips. Everyone enjoyed their meal and had no complaints at all. (I would... More

I met a friend at O'Riley's for dinner. She ordered the Irish Nachos and a Bloody Mary. The Nachos sounded good so I ordered the same but without the bacon and peppers. I chose Sangria as my drink. It was a nice complement to the nachos. Irish Nachos consist of waffle fries, melted ( slightly spicy) cheese, sour cream and... More

From the moment you walk in to this venerable building with its patterned floors, tin ceiling, and the coziest booths outside of Ireland, you will find the bit if Irish in you and your Irish eyes will smile. You will relax, and then you will be treated to excellent service and great food. We have enjoyed the salmon, Reuben sandwiches,... More

When the GM plant closed a few years back, Janesville's economy took a big hit. Nearby Beloit also hit the economic skids. Amidst the economic carnage, and in spite of recent feckless and ineffecftive economic "recovery" policies, O'Riley's thankfully managed to survive. The menu is full of winners, including the black bean and onion soups (house made daily). Bangers and... More

I hate to say this, but I was very disappointed with my dinner at Riley's. I was so excited for something different. We got an appetizer (unfortunately I can't remember what it was called) and it was average. It was like a deep fried Reuben. Very greasy, but average. Then we had dinner. I ordered the fish and chips, and... More
