“Nice Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

Went there for a drink and meal last week. Nice menu selection and great bar offerings. A little chintzy with their drinks though; stupid one-shot pour valves. Wiatress was nice, but clueless. I'd recommend it.

“Ta se go hointach! Birthday Celebration Was a Hit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

My wife planned a surprise birthday party at O'Faolain's Irish Bar and Restaurant in Sterling. It was a great time. We were seated on their amazing patio. The food was great, the beer was cold. A few people in our group didn't like their mixed drinks -- so, I'm not sure if it was them or the bartender. All-in-All - we had a wonderful experience and I would recommend O'Faolain's without any hesitation. One thing everyone should be aware of - parking close to the bar always seems to be quite full. The 'strip mall' has a couple of bars, a dance club, a lot of restaurants, and a movie theater. So, one be careful; secondly, be prepared to walk a bit -- but it will be well worth it! Let the CRAIC be Mighty!

“Great place to hang out with colleagues and cut loose!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

Gotta love the beer here, why does it taste better? Must be the environment.

“Avoid the bangers & mash”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

My girlfriend likes O'Faolain's but the last two visits were disappointing for me. The last time I tried the bangers & mash and I received a plate of 4 breakfast sausage links that looked and tasted like they came from a box of Jimmy Deans frozen sausage.
