“Great food if you have time!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

I have been to O'Briens twice. Each time, the atmosphere was lively with families and an adult crowd (lunch time and early dinner). The food was fantastic, I had a Caribbean chicken sandwich lots of great flavor and large portions (if you're looking for that in a restaurant). The service was ok and the food took quite a while to come out, but that is to be expected in a busy restaurant. Worth the wait if you have time and enjoy great food in a unique atmosphere right on Main St. in Canandaigua.

“Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

A little noisy, but is to be expected with a bar restaurant combo. Friendly service, and just a nice atmosphere

“Great for lunches or early dinners”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Our family enjoys going to Eddie O'Briens because the reasonable price and a good food choice. Saturday nights are busy and it's difficult to hear anyone at your table. They also have live music on Saturday nights. Our waitress was good but wasn't aware of cocktail specials or any specialty drinks the restaurant may have. The restaurant is very nice looking with a brick accent wall, tin ceilings and dark wood tables and booths. The burgers are great at Eddie O'Briens as is the French Dip. The side salads are of average size but the dinner salads are small and not so filling.

“Great food cold beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Great service, great tasing beer and food. Bartenders are friendly, fast ,
don't ignore you and remember you. It's really a hometown bar.

“Not for me”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

We went to the recently opened Farmington location. It was crowded, noisy and food was over cooked. We waited over an hour for our food to arrive. I had an O'brien's Reuben and the corned beef was hard & stringy and the toasted bread was burnt. Other people who were there before us were just getting their dinner when we were finishing. Isn't conducive to conversation just watching TV. We won't be back and will not recommend it.
