Friendly service and a good selection of beers. Seems to have a regular crowd hangout. Rather dark inside. Not a real Irish pub experience.

Found O’Malley’s late in the night I flew in. Good bar food and cold drinks! The staff was very friendly. The Buffalo chicken Tenderwich was very good. Stop on in if you are ever in the area.

Walking around looking for a beer and sandwich when I looked down this alley beyond construction and found a gem. Sat at bar and it was like a different version of cheers. A neighborhood bar in the inner city! It was awesome. Beers were well...More

An Irish pub like an Irish pub should be. Cozy atmosphere and just a short walk from Great American Ballpark. Reuben sandwich (with homemade sauce) was the best I've ever eaten. Stopped by the next day and tried the Rachel-- just as delicious. Won't go...More
