Went there for a drink and meal last week. Nice menu selection and great bar offerings. A little chintzy with their drinks though; stupid one-shot pour valves. Wiatress was nice, but clueless. I'd recommend it.

My wife planned a surprise birthday party at O'Faolain's Irish Bar and Restaurant in Sterling. It was a great time. We were seated on their amazing patio. The food was great, the beer was cold. A few people in our group didn't like their mixed drinks -- so, I'm not sure if it was them or the bartender. All-in-All - we had a wonderful experience and I would recommend O'Faolain's without any hesitation. One thing everyone should be aware of - parking close to the bar always seems to be quite full. The 'strip mall' has a couple of bars, a dance club, a lot of restaurants, and a movie theater. So, one be careful; secondly, be prepared to walk a bit -- but it will be well worth it! Let the CRAIC be Mighty!

Gotta love the beer here, why does it taste better? Must be the environment.

My girlfriend likes O'Faolain's but the last two visits were disappointing for me. The last time I tried the bangers & mash and I received a plate of 4 breakfast sausage links that looked and tasted like they came from a box of Jimmy Deans frozen sausage.
