Jackie O's is a brew pub and restaurant which occupies two store fronts joined by a common back patio. One side is a more traditional bar that countains their brewing setup for their in-house beers and is a cozy, intimate setting. The other side is much more spacious and has a stage for live music. Between both you can order off their whole menu.
What can one really say about this place that will truly do it justice. It has an amazing atmosphere that just can't be beat. Their food is just out of this world - the crust of their pizzas is made from the spent grains of their brewing, and just spectacular. They make a point to source local ingredients which is very, very cool.
The Beer: I had to save the best for last. While they do serve beers from big name brewerys you know, by far, the real treat is what they brew themselves. I am a little bit of a beer snob, and dabble in brewing myself, and have had a wide variety of both craft beer and micro brew exposure. Jackie O's is doing it right. They are making some exceptionally stellar beers in a wide variety of styles that are out of this world. I just had their Screaming Pumpkin Sour that was orgasmic!
I cannot say enough good things about this place. If you come to Athena, OH - You are wasting your time if you don't spend a evening at Jackie O's.
