Good food and service in a friendly atmosphere.

I have eaten here many times and always enjoyed the food and she service was friendly. The decor is interesting but the noise level is usually fairly high. Over all I enjoy my visits.

I have been eating at O'Shays since 1995 and their service and the quality of the food has always been excellent. Try the Chophouse Steak salad!

Really like the ambiance of the place. A nice bar and always lots of tables filled. A great sign at a restaurant. There are a wide variety of items to choose from with traditional irish fare, but also mexican and american. Live the emerald isle salmon. Only knock is it can be a bit pricey, but quality is there.

This has been our go to restaurant since the day they opened. But we won't be back. We went in for lunch last week and we were very disappointed in the food/service. It's so overpriced it's ridiculous ($11.00 for 7 wings.......yes SEVEN. Bowl of chili fries....$8.00???). The food itself was awful. No taste. Not even warm. Let me say that... More

This was the second time I have eaten at this obviously locally popular ersastz Irish restaurant. I have recently moved to a nearby town and work in Boulder; competition for great food goes without saying. I chose to return only because my first visit was with new friends who were regulars. I had enjoyed the Baja Fish Tacos. Got that?... More

We went with friends for dinner. All of us loved our food. There was a 20 minute wait to be seated on a Wednesday night but well worth the wait.

The food is good and the atmosphere is fantastic! But everybody in town knows it too, so get there early if you don't want to wait.

I used to tell everyone that this place was ALWAYS good, but lately the last few times I've been it has only been so so. The French onion soup used to be the best, but tonite it was watered down and weak on flavor, same with the chicken Marsala, no Marsala flavor, just basic chicken gravy, I've tasted better out...

Not sure how they are able to maintain such a diverse and large menu. I've never had a bad meal. Large bar with friendly staff. It is common to get your bill and notice a drink or two was accidentally "forgiven." They treat regulars like celebrities and visitors like regulars.

O'Shays has been a 'staple' in Longmont for quite some time now. They have a great variety of food from traditional Irish fair to american foods. The daily specials are often REALLY good, but somewhat pricey. Bar staff is good. When they are busy (which is most of the time) it's certainly a loud place, but again; it's a hot... More
