Having visited Ireland many times, The Pub in Oconomowoc is as good an example as you will find of a traditional Irish Pub. From the facade on the outside reminiscent of many an Irish Pub to the bar area and dining room that are just the right size for group gathering. Aelred and Bernie are normally there to talk to...

I visit Oconomowoc each year for a competition my daughter and her dance mate compete in. We enjoy finding and trying new places for dinner as we normally stay overnight. Based on reviews we decided to try The Pub for an early dinner on Saturday evening after arriving to another restaurant in downtown and finding it closed until February. We... More

I lost my i.d. card and realized it the next day, i left messages at all the places we had visited that evening and i believe within the hour i got a call from a gentleman at The Pub to tell me he...

We are recent to the Oconomowoc and love Irish pubs, well we were in for a real surprise. We have now tried everything from their traditional Irish fare to their duck, lamb and incredible bacon wrapped scallops. The only "downside is that it's small size can make for busy nights, especially when they have live music, but it's got a... More

We dined here while visiting some friends in the area. The menu is typical Irish Pub, with everything from Shepherd's Pie to steaks, with the traditional Friday Fish Fry as well. Food was cooked as ordered and everythign tasted great. The server was a bit amateurish in her attempt to hurry us along so she could turn another table on... More

My bride and I came in for Friday night fish! We had read the good reviews about the chef at this place and decided to give The Pub a try! We came in and took a seat at the bar where Jason our bartender greeted us! He was friendly and offered us their wine list! Bar area is quaint and... More

While they don't publicize it The Pub is a throw back that is greatly needed in today's fast paced, digital world. There's no distracting television and the food is gourmet. Aelred and Bernadette have created a true, Irish restaurant that is based on family, friends, and great food. It's not to be missed. I've taken my wife, my family, my... More

Love the Friday fish fry, Shepards pie and cheese plates. Great atmosphere and service. Bartenders are friendly and you can eat at the bar too. Highly recommend.
