“Good atmosphere, friendly staff”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

Popped in here to shelter from a thunderstorm, whilst shopping at Rice Village.
Being from the UK, we don't usually enter UK/Irish pubs when travelling, but it was the closest place.
It was very pleasant, the barman was friendly and chatty, the choice of beer/cider was good. The toilets/bathroom was clean.
Sat on the outside decking, and watched the storm. Free wifi, so caught up with news from home.
Very comfortable there, enjoyed our time.
Would return, just for the Angry Orchard cider!!

“yuk”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

Irish pub and restaurant - corned beef and cabbage - awful. In no way did it resemble the real thing. Server said, "not my fault."

“Great Neighborhood Pub Ideal for Twenty-Somethings & Up!”
Reviewed May 9, 2012

This is a classic Pub with good food and a fun atmosphere. Mind you, this is not gourmet; we're talking good pub food. The patio adjacent to the street allows for fun socializing and people watching. It's not half bad in the summer either thanks to a shade canopy and misters. The only drawback is that, like almost all Houston establishments, they do not have a single IPA (what's a guy from the northwest supposed to do?). But, they have plenty of lagers, Guinness, and a full bar otherwise. I'm in my late 50's and have a great time meeting friends here; but, this is a really good choice for twenty-somethings especially on Tuesday nights when the BON Running club meets for a run through Rice University followed by beer, eats, and chatting up the opposite sex still sweaty.

“Cozy atmosphere”
Reviewed February 19, 2012

Classical student bar. OK place. Not much different from many others. But nice and cozy atmosphere. Had white gummy bear cocktail - interesting...

“Always a Good Time”
Reviewed February 8, 2012

Brian O'Neill's offers a varied menu at great prices! I really like their food and the atmosphere is really fun. They have great Happy Hour Specials too. I love sitting outside on the covered front patio. It usually gets a bit crowded in the evenings and they often offer live music. Brunch is fun and delicious with cheap mimosas!
