Certainly a not miss while in town. Great atmosphere and entertainment while I was there. Bartenders are authentic from the old country and were very friendly...Busy, pub and great selection of beers and whiskies...

It took 15 mins and one of us going to the bar to ask if anyone is working before we got service. Once we were recognized as new patrons the service improved.. We ordered the Calamari to start and we each ordered the fish & chips. Mixed reviews for the food.. the calamari had great flavor but the fish and chips were greasy.. but fresh quality.

I'm a bit of a pub nut, and every time I go to Old Town Alexandria, it is an unspoken rule that my family must visit O'Connells. Their food is great (I suggest the ever classic fish and chips) and the environment makes me feel like I'm in an old Irish pub, which you basically are! A lot of the décor is actually from old Ireland, can't recall if they came from an Irish pub or not, but I am 99% sure they did!! And their bread pudding is to die for! So don't miss out and add O'Connells to you DC/Old Alexandria dining experience!!

Pub décor is outstanding and comfortable. Andrea was running the 2nd floor bar and did an excellent job taking care of us...thank you, again! The BBQ pork wings were phenomenal and my Dunmore East Seafood Pie was incredible. I normally get the Shepherds Pie but Andrea recommended the Seafood Pie and it did not disappoint. Great location and a good spot to catch any sports events on the multiple TVs. Slainte'!
