“Beer, cocktails and OK food.”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

O'Keefe's has been a fixture in Clearwater for decades. A decade ago the food was much better. The service is fine, the menu has some unusual items like an Irish 7 course dinner - a six beers and a boiled potato, but the food is just cookie cutter these days. Nothing spectacular. The pizza is not very good.

Others in my party liked it very much, but it could be the round of drinks they had that make things more palatable. On the plus side the kitchen is open late.

“Enjoy the food each visit!”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

I have passed O’Keefe’s many times on my way to Clearwater Beach. We decided to stop in and try it. A great Irish Pub. They offer 2-4-1 Happy Hour all day, everyday. This is a local favorite. The bar area is a sports bar. I will say the building has been around for 30 years but don't let that turn you away. They have indoor as well as outdoor seating. the outdoor area is pet friendly if you want to bring your furry friend. I have been here four times now. The fried green tomatoes are delicious. The fried pickles and buffalo chicken sandwich are pretty good too. The portions are great for the price. Service is good. They offer evening entertainment such as KARAOKE on select nights. I have enjoyed each and every time I have eaten at this restaurant.

“great atmosphere, service and fab food”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

We didn t really know what to expect of an Irish Pub in Florida, but O'Keefes was brilliant. The staff were efficient and gave us a warm welcome, the guinness was good and the menu so appealing it was hard to choose. We both went for ribs and wow, they were the best ribs ever ! We liked the way that O'Keefes accommodates couples or smaller parties in the cosy booths, while larger parties have the middle of the restaurant and theres also a large bar area. Theres a fun atmosphere and we would definately recommend.

“A notch above your average "Irish pub"”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Ample covered outdoor seating, large bar, hard wooden seating, polymer tabletops. Now to the food:Hands down the best fish and chips. I couldn't match them in London. Very good Shepherd's Pie. Addictive fries. I'm sure the rest is good too. They can accommodate large groups - we often meet there with 16-20 people.
