We had a great time especially
We had a great time especially once the dueling pianos started! However, there was no server for the piano room when we arrived and this is where we wanted to sit. There was only outside seating...and it was too chilly for us. So a server had to go back/forth between outside seating and our area. When she brought our food we had to request cutlery and napkins...as these had not been provided for us. When we were ready to pay our bill, we had to track her down to get it. Then we had to track her down again (more than 30 minutes later)to close out payment. We could have easily left and stuck her/the establishment with an unpaid bill.

Nice outdoor courtyard
We had an outdoor courtyard table, which was very nice on a beautiful day, which seems preferable to the indoor section which is dark and loud, with more of a party atmosphere. Food was good but not great for the prices. Gumbo was nothing special; Etouffee was excellent. Portions not large compared to other similar restaurants. Would return again if we could sit outside on a nice day.

I was looking for an outdoor
I was looking for an outdoor dining experience for my newly arrived house guest from the frozen north. Pat O'Briens was what I was expecting with a friendly staff, pleasant outdoor ambiance/weather and decent food. We were able to talk and catch up in a pleasant environment.

Our first Orlando visit was
Our first Orlando visit was highlighted by dining at Pat OBriens. Excellent food at a good price with attentive service. The Dueling Pianos exceeded our experience at similar venues we've visited. My wife says we will return and everyone knows what makes the Mrs.happy makes the Mr. happy too!

We went to Pat O'Briens and had a really fun time! I didn't realize that they had piano players and we sang and danced. They were really terrific and we were able to request songs. Overall, it was a good dinner and great fun!

I have been to Pat O'Brian's
I have been to Pat O'Brian's in New Orleans, so I was looking forward to another night of fun at Patty O's. I read that it was an
exact copy of the original bar....very close but not exact. That didn't spoil the fun.
We made reservations for dinner and sat in the Piano Bar Room. We sang and laughed all night. What a great way to end
a fun-filled day at Universal in Orlando! It was nice to be able to walk to dinner rather than getting the car and leaving the park.

New Orleans Feel
The food was wonderful!! The Nachos were fabulous and so was the Jambalaya!! We were there too early for the piano bar entertainment, but saw one of the players do a song for a sound check and he was great:) Overall a wonderful experience!!!!

Can't beat the blackened redfish.
Can't beat the blackened redfish. Pat O should reconsider taking the redfish off the menu. Service was very good. We had an enjoyable evening. Drinks were outstanding.

Better than Emerils
Yeah...that's what I said. We ate at Emeril's the last time we were in Orlando and I found the food to be surprising bland. Pat O' Brien's did not disappoint. Food had just enough spice and plenty of flavor. It felt like I was back in New Orleans. We will definitely be back the next time we visit Orlando.

Pat O'Brien's- Irish I was Cajun!
Yummy food all around! Great fish & chips, muffaletta sandwich was huge, & Copperstone steak was tender medallions over smashed potato goodness.

If you have the chance stay for the dueling pianos!
6/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food was delicious, service was excellent and the outdoor seating had the perfect ambiance. Would definitely return to this restaurant again and again.
6/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our visit to Pat O'Brien's was great! Not only was the food incredible (quite possibly the best Mac and Cheese I've ever had), but the staff was so great. Our server, Samantha, gave excellent suggestions as well as service. The ambiance on the patio was great with the flaming fountain and the Hurricane really is something to write home about. As a bartender/server myself, I was thoroughly impressed by the staff, even seeing one bartender come out around the bar to take a picture of another table without being asked. Great place all around, will be returning when back in the area!

Good drinks and music
We were there primarily to see the dueling piano show. These guys didn't disappoint. Their music knowledge was great and they knew almost every song requested. The drinks were mixed well and not watered down which happens a lot in tourist locations. Overall the experience is great and one to repeat.
6/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
At first glance, we actually didn't think we would stay for dinner. The piano bar was super noisy so we asked to move outside. we were at this tiny little table. We thought we'd just have a drink and appetizer and then leave to go elsewhere for dinner. But our server was great and offered to bring another table over, which he did ,so we had more space. We decided to stay and had a very nice dinner.

The pair of seasoned piano entertainers were a true hit. Interacted well with the diners and great attitude with each other. Drinks were great, food even better, service prompt and our server was around frequently.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
You could help but sing along. The piano players were great. The food was great tasting and hot when it got to the table. We had a great time.

Good food - lively entertainment
Such a fun night with great food, lovely cocktails & top class entertainment . Be sure to get seated inside to join in the fun of the piano players .

We picked Pat O'Briens from a list of "fine dining" at Universal Orlando. We visited the bar for happy hour first and the bartender was great. He talked with all the customers and seemed knowledgable about the products. Our dinner food was also excellent. Service was ok, but not great. Not sure how busy the waitress was but she did not check on us to see if we needed refills, etc. Also, a pet peeve of ours, but the meal was delivered before we finished our salads after specifically indicating we were not in a hurry so please don't rush the order. However, all in all it was a nice e evening and the food was top notch. I would definitely recommend the restaurant if you are interested in a good Cajun meal..

Definitely 2 thumbs up! Our waiter was fabulous! The food was delicious. The dual piano performance was tons of fun. And...you can never go wrong with a Hurricane!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
A lot of fun!
Went with my wife for a fun evening out. We ended up staying for almost 5 hours enjoying the dueling pianos and tasty drinks!

Dueling Pianos in a great place
I love the dueling pianos. That with the Bayou burger and fantastic service makes this place amazing. I go at least once a week because the price is reasonable, fantastic service, and incredible atmosphere!

Our family of four visited Orlando resorts and decided upon Pat O'Briens because of the menu and location (right on CityWalk). We almost decided to dine at their outdoor seating but we are glad that we did not. Inside, there was a terrific piano bar to go along with the great food. Although it was a "bar setting" it was totally appropriate for our kids (ages 9 and 12) which may have been related to the time of our meal (7:30 to 9:00pm). We all enjoyed the music, the atmosphere was definitely lively and the food was superb! Great experience. We already plan to return on our next trip to Orlando.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
We loved this place! It's tucked away a little but still has a great view and the live music is a great touch!

My Birthday Celebration
Having been within a 1 hour drive of Pat OBriens in New Orleans for several years I can tell you it was the real deal. So if you are looking for real cajun food go over to O'Briens in Orlando at Universal,s City walk. It was such a wonderful experience to have the real thing instead of the pretend to be cajun food so many places serve. The service at Pat's was prompt, courteous, and genuinely happy to have you there and that was true from the check in desk through out the evening. Smantha T. was our server and I can't say enough nice things about the service, so I'll just say thank you Samantha for helping to make it the wonderful birthday day experince I had hoped for. So let me say Pat's is a place I would definitely return to.

5 pm dinner
Had a great time! Eat early. Crowds pick up by 5:30. Food was excellent. Ate on the patio. Husband loved jambalaya with shrimp, chicken and sausage. Kids has grilled cheese and chic tenders.

Favorite Citywalk Restaurant
Beautiful brick courtyard spot for dining, food was great especially the crawfish etoufe. Matty was our server and he was very pleasant and helpful with all our needs and questions. If there were any drawbacks it was that we still had to pay $16.00 for parking just to go for dinner at our favorite spot at Citywalk. We also went a few months earlier to have dinner at Pat O'briens and found the area closed for a private function which did not necessarily include the restaurant. Great Dining and Drinks

We went to Pat O'brien's before Halloween Horror Nights. Luckily it was happy hour and we got discounted hurricanes and apps. Worked out perfectly!
We enjoyed the live piano music.

Dueling pianos made for a great fun time with friends.

A Fun Find
If you want to be entertained while eating I would definitely suggest this place. The food was good and the prices were not bad either. The guys on the pianos were lively and fun. It is a great place to go have a good time. I would definitely recommend it to anyone in the area.
