We came here for lunch when a women at the cultural center recommended it. I had a place of delicious oysters and the best seafood chowder I have ever had. I tried to convince the chef to give up his recipe, but no luck.

I have been to O'hares many times and found most times that the seafood was excellent. Although on my last visit i ordered Sirloin steak which was one of the worst i have had in a very long time. I asked for medium and got rare and tough as leather. and the salad that accompanied the meal was a let down as if thrown together haphazardly with little to no dressing The tables are far too small for diners and if you are unfortunate enough to be seated by the fire you will be roasted out of the place. The service is very slow which is off putting if your on a time schedule. If visiting again i would stick to the seafood and stay away from the red meats. The staff are friendly but service is slow and frustrating.

The Guinness here is great.

The food is also fantastic although you might wait a while as word seems to have got out.

Very reasonable prices and very generous portions
