This is a family pub. Many of the customers are regulars and the atmosphere is relaxing and welcoming. Austin the owner runs a good place and the menu is larger than expected for pub grub food. Food is cooked fresh off the grill and is damn good especially for the fair price. Menu does cater to the westerner crowd and... More

There are not enough words to express how much I love this place. Food is wonderful, staff is great, atmosphere is fantastic. Obs became my home away from home, during my 2 year stay in Changwon.

Whether it's just a couple of beers or a meal, this place is awesome. Relax with friends, play a game of pool and soak in the Irish hospitality.

Ob's is a place that makes you feel at home! The food is fantastic and Austin is always coming up with new dishes that expats are craving. You really can't go wrong visiting a bar like this. Even improved my dart skills! Ob's is always a time!

Changwon was home for me for almost 4 years, and I would never have stayed longer than a year if it weren't for O'Briens. The food is A* - Austin pays close attention to what Expats are looking for when they're in town and always delivers. Music selection is appropriate and inoffensive. The layout of the bar is perfect for... More

OB's is the perfect getaway for any expat looking for something familiar. Thankfully, it has become the home away from home for many people living here in Changwon. We would like to think we offer customers a comfortable atmosphere with great food and friendly service. Some useful information about the bar * Taco Tuesday every Tuesday * We have a dart board and a pool table, both are free of charge. * Thursday night is Poker Night, NL Texas Holdem, starts at 10pm. * We have recently expanded our craft beer selection, our draft IPA is very popular. * We have a burger deal every Friday. Free draft beer with our special. * OB's is the only foreign owned and run bar in the city. If you are not satisfied with your time at OB's, please let us know. We are always trying to better ourselves and any feedback would be greatly appreciated, thanks for visiting. Austin and the crew at OB's.
