The food was disappointing. The crab bisque had little crab or crab flavor and tasted like a creamy stick of butter.
The snapper was coated with something before it was pan seared so it tasted more like “fried” fish. The vegetables were fresh and the crab cakes were very good but not the best ever as promoted.

Service was terrific and we have been many times before with exceptional food. Prior to describing my dinner, my husbands crab cakes were very good. I ordered the crispy fried rockfish. I should have asked for a detailed explanation as I was expecting a nice fillet, fried with a crispy exterior and soft moist interior. I received, and the best analogy I can think of, is McDonald chicken nuggets. They were heavily breaded, fried, not very warm, and soft, not crispy. The meat was very gamey / fishy tasting. They were warm to cold. I would assume they were frozen and baked on a cookie sheet. The server did provide a free desert, but for a 30-some dollar entree, I would expect better, especially from OLearys.

I had the seared salmon. It was one of the most tasty dishes I remember ever having had. We started the meal with crispy fried calamari, outstanding. My wife had diver scolloops which she said were delicious. We were too full to have desert so we bought Chocolate banana bread putting which have had before and like. The waitress was very helpful. I would rate the meal 12 on a scale 1 to 10.

My girlfriend and I went for an early Valentine’s Day dinner for both of our first times here. We were blown away! Beautiful artwork, great atmosphere, incredibly polite staff, and amazing food. We arrived 15 minutes early from the reservation while they were fairly busy; the host himself went and bussed our table immediately while we briefly waited at the bar. Within seconds of waiting the bartender already asked if we wanted drinks and ensured we were taken care of. Once seated, the waitress came by with waters and bread, elegantly described the day’s specials, and took our orders. We ate the crab bisque, diver’s scallops, salmon, crab cakes, and a chocolate dessert, all of which were incredible with the wine our waitress recommended. Overall, the staff and ambiance was excellent, and the food was incredible, if a bit expensive, though the quality was impeccable.

Delicious cozy restaurant. Celebrating an early Valentines dinner and craving seafood. We chose O’Learys. Also, it has been on my hit list for restaurants to try when we’re alone. We shared the grilled oysters, which were highly recommended. My husband ordered the crab cakes and I ordered the the pan seared Diver scallops. Every thing was delicious. I’m so glad we went before the holiday rush. Parking on site was a HUGE plus since it was a night out.

My favorite restaurant on the east coast! Exceptional food, great atmosphere & service. Dimitri our waiter was excellent in making recommendations for wine and food. Wil the owner is always friendly & plans creative menu items using locally sourced items. The bar is great! Every bottle in the bar has a creative, artistic stopper. Worth the drive, we came from NJ.

Enjoyed a really special Sunday brunch with family. Everything was perfect; starting with our unhurried mango cava's and bloodies to the spectacular Eastportorician (egg covered with crabmeat, panko and flash-fried),chef's recommended bread pudding french toast and finally the amazing crab benenedicts. First class prep and presentation and all the way. Our waiter was present when he needed to be but did not hover over us. Nothing more to say but to rave about the entire experience. Lovely room, relaxed and cozy; fantastic artwork, and new outdoor wall mural is a must for a selfie. We will definitely be back!

Great service, love the decor, menu was unique- great restaurant. I only have one negative thing to say- and I only write this hoping the chef will take note- all our food had too much of a heavy hand on the oil. I had a beet salad that was too greasy -and a scallop risoto main dish that was also too oily- no need. The food could have been prepared lighter without any sacrifice on flavor or appearance.

It is hard to overstate the pleasure of dining at O'Leary's. We have met our friends there for New Years Eve the last five years and very time has been a jewel of a memory. We never feel rushed. We always feel welcomed. The food is delicious but the atmosphere for this special occasion could not be more magical and warming. For people with extremely poor hearing some sections of the dining room may be difficult. But if you state your concern ahead of time they will help seat you in one of the more secluded sections. Really... wonderful.

We had a wonderful dinner there on a busier than average night - right after The Military Bowl, so basically a home football game for Navy.
So they were busy, but you’d never have known it by the level of service, the speed in which the drinks and food were served, etc...
Three of the four of us ordered their crab cakes, which were excellent and the fourth really enjoyed his fish special.
The cocktails were a hit too!
Our waitress was Beatrice and she did a great job.
