Diner Reviews
  • "Although we've lived in Chicago for decades we had never been to O'Briens before. We had a taste for a pub experience, and this was perfect. I had the chicken pot pie, which had a superb crust; my wife had a burger, which was prepared exactly as specified on a warm pretzel roll; and the bread pudding to finish was superb. The server had worked there for years and steered us right on everything, and was very attentive without suffocating. It didn't hurt that it was a warm night and the doors were open and the street scene was vibrant and exciting."

  • "Our family has returned to O'Briens time and time again for several years - - it's one of our favorite neighborhood restaurants. The food is excellent at reasonable prices. The free valet parking is a huge perk. And, the service is consistently outstanding. A special shout-out to Laura, the greeter at the host stand, who always greets us with a warm welcome and makes us feel at home."

  • "Food was decent & came quickly. We ordered sandwiches/burgers. My only complaint would be $6 for a side salad and same price for a cup of soup, but for the location (we were headed to Zanies for a show) is worth it. We were able to meter park right across the street, but that was just plain 'ole luck. Would go back."

  • "The food, atmospher and the service at O'Brien's is exceptional. When asked about the prime rib, the server though a vegetarian, said that whenever the owner comes in that's what he orders. Having that "knowledge" is much appreciated in a server. She was right...the prime rib was exceptional!!"

  • "Start with free valet parking (!) add friendly staff, tasty food, lovely setting, reasonable price- really nice evening out. Wasnt expecting white table cloths. The place was busy with a couple large tables around us but we were able to converse and enjoy. Burgers and fishnchips were really good. Pretzel bun was nice touch as was the sweet potatoe fries. Cobb salad and coleslaw were just ok. Menu included high end steaks, burgers, and expected pub food- sheppherd pie, Fish n chips, pot pie- plus other dinner entres. We were very happy. Made a reservation on Open Table and they seated us promptly when we arrived."

  • "The dining room, a little up from the bar area, is very pleasant and was decorated nicely for Christmas. Our service, however, was haphazard. We lost our waitress for a while and the host pinch-hitted, she later appeared but was not attentive. We ordered coffee and waited and waited; since we had a concert to make (which the staff knew) we had to leave without coffee or dessert."

  • "My family and I made reservations for 5:30PM through open table. We had reservations for Second City at 8:00PM. We got there early and our table was waiting. The staff was very attentive and friendly. My husband had the Chicken Pot Pie which he said was very good. My daughter and I both had the Filet was was excellent! We visit tthe city often and will definitely eat there again."

  • "....but deteriorated enormously as the night went on. Waiter disappeared for over 30 minutes at a time. Twice I had to go and try to find him. Good thing his tip was included in the bill. Won't go to O'Brien's again in a group. Very disappointing."
