O'Brien's offers the best ice cream I have ever had. If you like Cook-Out's shakes, Bruster's ice cream, and Carvel's ice cream and shakes, you'll love O'Brien's. They offer around 10 year-round alcoholic flavor menu staples, with seasonal flavors rotating in. It is thick, the...flavors are perfectly crafted-- it's truly the golden standard, coming from a major ice cream enthusiast lol. asides: - service: Two of the staff members are so cool that I've befriended them. I've been a weekly regular here for over a year strong, and even without the world-class ice cream, I'd come for those two staff members. - ambience: It's got a bit of an Irish effort going into the interior design. I like it. And the warmth of the staff really adds to the scene. - revisit: Absolutely. I've been here like 60+ times at this point.More

The atmosphere and food was amazing! Our table had the soft pretzel with beer cheese, the clam chowder, Shepherd's pie and a Reuben. I've never had such soft pretzels. Dipped in the cheese was addictive. Wow! But then, everything was off the chart! The chef...knows how to blend flavors. The owners, Frank and Laurie, were hospitable and down to earth. The restaurant is a bit hidden but worth finding. Can't wait to to come back when life music is available. Oh, and we had to try the "flight" of adult ice cream. That alone is worth just stopping by. Bananas Foster for the win!More

We had a taste for ice cream and European Cuisine, so I went to this location. Also I wanted to help small busniess in the local area not affiliated with a chain during COVID-19. So we ordered a shepherd's pie, bangers and mash and also...some ice cream. The server was a nice young lady and she was very nice and helpful with our ice cream selection as well as our entree options. The shepherd's pie should be called a cottage pie there was no lamb or mutton but there was a red meet present which appeared to be American known pot roast. But it was very tasty and seasoned well, but I would've applied more vegetables in the bottom of the pie and a better gravy didn't really see or taste the gravy in the pie. Also the meat selection wouldn't have been my choice in a shepherd's pie the main word indicates lamb or mutton not pot roast. Meanwhile the green beans weren't under seasoned and needed to be cooked a little long they were still crunchy. The bangers and mash were ok I received sliced bangers verses whole bangers but it was still ok along with the peas which didn't have any seasoning. The ice cream was a favorite the server recommended infused flavors so we had the bananas foster, 4 horseman and mango habanero whiskey and they are were the best infused ice cream I've ever tasted. My only negative thing was the main thing I came in for which was the shepherd's pie which was more of a cottage pie.More

OH My GOODNESS! An amazing Irish pub, with original Irish family recipes! Mrs Lori and Mr Daddy O have knocked it out of the park with this restaurant! The items we’ve had are, Shepard’s pie with green beans , corn beef and cabbage, chicken and...wafffles, the Reuben, clam chowder, Wow, what can I say?! This place rocks. What’s for desert you ask? Bread pudding, Drunken ice cream made by daddy O himself. If you prefer, they also have non alcoholic ice cream flavors. This place is a new favorite for us local Gwinnett residents, but I would drive across country to eat here. It’s that Amazing! If you stop in and see Mrs Lori or Daddy O, tell them Keith sent you! They’ll take real good care of you!More

This review goes to you Lori "O". Everyone else read the negative reviews as I have before I decided to leave this one. Long story short, my family and I decided to treat my daughter and her two friends to ice cream on Saturday night....We have never been here before and decided to try. Heard is was expensive and it was. We placed our $37.91 order including tip and decided to sit down at a table to wait. There were several tables open. A waitress came over and started wiping the table and pushing the crumbs on my daughter and her friends. When I went to say something the waitress snapped back are to going to order, these tables are only for customers who pay to sit here. Then she proceeded to become very rude until we were forced to get up. I spoke my mind on how rude she was being and she kept being rude and became much louder so the whole place could hear. I suspected she was a little drunk as I could smell alcohol on her breath and her eyes were bloodshot. I was surprised to find someone working drunk. Before things got out of hand I left to wait in the truck for the rest of the family to receive their order. When we were on our way again my wife and I talked about what happened. I was not surprised to find out that the very rude waitress was the owners wife. I couldn't believe that she was that hard up for money that she was taking tips away from the staff. Being a Chef for over twenty years on Hilton Head Island I can say for sure, no restaurant survives with that level of rudeness and no staff works very long for an owner that steals tips from them. All the best Lori "O". Everyone else, "beware" including future staff.More

5 for the ice cream, 3 for the food selection. Unless you are in the mood for a sandwich, I can't recommend this place for a meal. They do have soups, but be sure to check to see what soup is available when you go....They rotate three different ones depending on the day of the month. OTOH, the ice cream is incredible! It's worth the trip just for it.More

Went with some friends to have dinner but really to try the adult ice cream flavors. I had an ice cream flight with the Oreo, Irish coffee, a caramel one, and a regular Dole Whip. They were all very tasty. I also had a sandwich,...which was good, but I wish they had fries rather than chips. Service was great.More
