Large portions and great food. We frequent the Bred Pub especially for their Maytag chips appetizer, fish and chips, and the O'Malley's Shillelagh.

The food was good with large portions and good quality but the service was so bad, we sat waiting for silverware to eat our salads, asking twice and finally just cancelled some of our drink orders that never came. Too many awesome eateries here to deal with that.

First my fish and chips were burned and the grits in the shrimp and grits were watery. our bread pudding was also burned and just covered with sauce to hide it. when my wife told the hostess this as we were leaving all she said was "Oh,...

We didn't think a hamburger could be this good! Came back the next day for more! Located in the downtown revitalized area of Opelika. It is a charming pub.

We met friends for dinner at the Irish Bred Pub in Opelika, Alabama on our trip back from the Smoky Mountains. The food was very good and our Shamrock drinks were delicious. Our waitress could not have been better. She was excellent. We enjoyed the atmosphere and we arrived before the supper crowd arrived. We will definitely dine there again... More

My daughter and I went to this restaurant to have dinner. There was no room to wait and there wasn't that many people waiting only one other couple. It took them 45 minutes to sit us.

Basically a hamburger joint rarely serves Irish food which was a disappointment. I was wanting shepherd pie but all I saw on menu was a lunch menu and just overpriced hamburgers
