This was our first time here and as soon as we walked in everyone was very welcoming and friendly! Drinks and service were good! I looked at menu just to get an idea of what they offered and I would like to go back and eat here!

O'Lacy's looks the part of an authentic Irish Pub, but it really should be better. A good reputation but it needs to be better. Your signature chips can't be greasy and soggy. You'd fish and chips needs to have crisp, hot, crunchy fish. Not soggy, luke warm. Your bartenders need to be friendlier to more than just the regulars. Your... More

We were traveling and wanted to watch the football game, 11 of us walked in they were very pleasant and accommodated us in s nice corner of the restaurant - even though sound was off on tv to accommodate other guests we had a great time.

Great bar atmosphere and Irish foods on the menu. Service was great, food was delicious but I am more apt to visit here for bar drinks and fun. Irish music and fun bartender.

I'm Not much of one for the bar scene...but they have some great food! Love the beef on weck and homemade chips. The chips are best dipped in their yellow Rivera dressing!

Coming from letchworth needed a pit stop for food. Love shepards pie this one not so much. Potatoes where good the rest meh. The "seafood bisque" was a creamy base with what I'd think to be imitation sea food chunks. Nothing worth running to for sure. I guess if I lived in the area and needed a beer and a... More

We love Irish pubs and often look for them when on a road trip. O'Laceys was a wonderful place - the people were very friendly, the staff was great, and the food was delicious - my husband and I both had the Irish Stew. We enjoyed a couple pints, had a great visit with both the bartender and other patrons,... More
