This was my first visit! I enjoyed this quiet elegant place to have a delightful dinner! I recommend the Maso Canali Pinot Grigio.

Nice varied menu with healthy choices included. The restaurant is large enough to hold a crowd but not noisy. Prices a little high for lunch but service excellent.

It seems like O'Brien's is a neighborhood favorite with lots of long-time loyal customers. It's a cozy place. Maybe we were there on an off night. There are two grouper dishes on the menu and we each ordered a different one. OK--but nothing to write...More

So when I go to the length of wanting a good, chef prepared dish, bistro style, I will not waste my time here again. I ordered the Cobia something or other, supposed to be a piece of fresh cobia topped with a shrimp sauce and...More
