“Best Pretzel at KW Oktoberfest!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

We headed to Oktoberfest Haus, Willkommen Platz, for a beer and authentic German pretzel only to discover they didn't have anymore. We headed to Bobby O'Briens as they become "Koenigstrasse Haus" during Oktoberfest. They did have an Oktoberfest menu and our server advised us that they make their pretzels fresh onsite. We had beer and a pretzel - and man were they good! We enjoyed warm, freshly made German pretzels, great music and super service from friendly staff - our best Oktoberfest experience!

“Great meetup place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

Bobby O'Briens.

I have alot of memories here.

Menu isn't all too impressive, but the patio is always fun to hangout on.

I sometimes just go because I dig the patio and the alcohol. Not so much the food.

I mean, the food is OK but its not fine dining, if you are seeking that. It is a PUB.

A nice casual hangout spot, to meet new people, your old friends, the people in your life.
They should add a pool tables here.

It is like Rum Runner's brother, in terms of casualty.

Servers are sometimes friendly, sometimes not.

“Don't Judge”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

I have gone there many times for the music but never ate there assuming the food was not to good. Took my sisters advice on the pizza, one of the best in town. The burgers are good and the wings are
excellent. They serve quite a few beers on tap including a micro from the Georgian Bay area called Creemore, lovely beer.
You can not beat the music on Wednesday nights. Rock and blues been going for ten years strong. Oh, and when the warm weather comes great patio.

“WINGS!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

Awesome wings, and the bouncer helped deter a drunk patron from starting a fight with us. Well-fed AND protected!
