The food is made with fresh local ingredients and is always tasty. There is always a wide selection of i-house micro-brews as well as an assortment to try from other breweries. Can sometimes be very crowded and a bit noisy.

This place is just great! Bar tenders always happy to suggest a beer you'll love based on what you like; the food is fantastic (and local ingredients) and always a cool selection of live music happening. Such a great place to chill out and have some amazing beer and food with friends! The inside ambiance is perfect but if you... More

Nice selection of craft beers. My husband enjoyed the fish tacos and I liked the black bean burger (a little dry so order mayo or something)

Our family of four dined at Jackie O's during a recent trip to Athens to visit Ohio University. My husband wanted to try it since he is big craft beer fan. The atmosphere is casual and bar-like, there are some booths along the wall, but mostly high barrel tabletops for seating. The menu is limited, burgers, pizza, tacos, salads, etc.... More

This is a no frills type of place. It kinda reminded me of a dance club at night and a restaurant during the day. We ordered a cheese burger, fish tacos and a BBQ chicken sandwich. The burger didn't have much flavor seemed like it was missing something?? The tacos were awesome. The Cod was blackened and it had a... More

I will start with the food. It was average food. In all honesty most people ordered burgers. They had small but good flavor but were pretty over-priced and fries were a $1.50 up charge. My wife ordered the fish tacos and did like them. Our waitress was very nice and attentive. My main complaint was that the owner had his... More

...you better be good. And this place definitely was. Visited on a Wednesday night. Light crowd. Very friendly, knowledgeable and engaging tenders. Did not eat but had a flight of 5 beers. All outstanding and appropriate to the styles. Cans and bottles are available for purchase as well. Must visit venue although I got the feeling I would have had... More

We enjoyed the various beers we tried, and the food was very tasty as well. We at first went to the upstairs patio - not good, it appeared to be the smoking section. So back indoors, where the temperature was just a bit chilly. But we got used to that, and had a nice dinner and beers.

Mom's weekend visit at OU. We got there early enough to grab a table!! You have to go up to the bar on the restaurant side to order food, but they will bring it to you. Pizza was yummy. Take time to read the wall for the brew menu.
