This was our first trip to O'Faolains and we were glad we went. First, you can make reservations on Open Table which is nice, so we made reservations for 6:00 pm on a Sat night - it wasn't really necessary as there were lots of open tables when we arrived. It's located in a strip mall type area so doesn't look like much from the outside - plenty of parking obviously due to the location.
We were seated right away and our waiter came over soon after to take drink orders. My wife ordered the prime rib special and I ordered a hamburger. We decided not to order an appetizer as we planned to split a dessert. We were glad we skipped the appetizer as the waiter brought out a bread basket that had regular white bread and a zucchini bread. The zucchini bread was outstanding! The waiter told us it was home made and the manager later told us it was something he and the chef came up with on a whim and it was so popular they now sell it by the loaf.
My wife's prime rib was cooked as ordered, medium, and it was delicious. My burger was very good as well, though I asked for medium and it was a little overcooked, but not dried out. The waiter also told me it didn't come with raw onion on it, just onion strings, but he was wrong on that count. No problem as I just took off the raw onion. My wife had a soda I had 2 O'Faolain Pale Ales with dinner and they were very good - $4 a pint which I thought was very reasonable.
We ordered the managers special for dessert, profiterole - 3 small cream puffs filled with vanilla ice cream, laid on a raspberry sauce and drizzled with hot chocolate - excellent!
The manager came by to ask how our meal was, and he delivered the dessert as well. He gave us dessert on the house, maybe just because we told him this was our first visit and we were very pleased with the meal. The bill would have been $49 total for the two of us if we paid for the dessert, and was $43 when that was taken off.
The whole staff was extremely friendly, the atmosphere is very relaxing, it was quiet so you can carry on a normal conversation, and the food and service were great. It should say something that it is about a 25 mile jaunt for us to go but we will definitely go back, and recommend it to our friends. Was very impressed.
