Lovely venue, with a great patio overlooking the 18th hole of the golf course. The service was excellent, and the street tacos (one pork and one shrimp) were delicious. I love to come here for lunch for a great experience with friends.

I love this place but they totally screwed up our reservation. I made it in Open Table and called TWICE to confirm we had reserved the outdoor fireplace table. Then we arrived and they said “oops, we gave it away on a first come first served basis to whoever walked in. The RESERVED sign was literally still on our table. The hostess was not very apologetic and said “yeah, Open Table reservations don’t work with us sometimes.” That’s no excuse for the 2 phone calls. But I didn’t throw a fit, but showed grace since we all make mistakes. Highly disappointing.

As always, this nicely tucked away gem was extremely enjoyable and relaxing. The prices appear to have gone up (unfortunately as it’s been since COVID- across the board), but the food was very good. The ambience there is always a pleasure and we sat outside as they offer both indoor & outdoor seating. The staff was very accommodating when we needed umbrellas moved, and later a space heater. My only disappointment was that we were there (the 3 of us) all celebrating late December birthdays (as is often the case for birthdays landing after Christmas & before New Years), celebrating into the new year-but the restaurant unfortunately offered no complimentary icecream, cake or discount$ on dessert for us which was a bummer. That little extra step would have gone a long way. Regardless O’Neill’s will continue to be a favorite of mine which I will frequent from time to time. Happy 2022 all!

We have been going to O'Neill"s Bar and Grill for about 2 years. The food is always great and the service top notch. The wait staff is very nice and efficient. They don't mind accommodating your food likes and dislikes.

Its a lovely place at a golf course at the every end of Avery in Mission Viejo. The patio is very pretty with views of the golf course. The inside is very nice also. The have a very nice fireplace in the bar area.

I have never gotten food there that was not wonderful. I especially love with fried calamari appetizer and the burger is one of the best I have ever eaten.

If you like spicy try the jalapeño margarita.

Thanksgiving Brunch was not as good as previous years… Food quality here is always good but for a Thanksgiving celebration the variety was so very WEAK!! With a $100 per plate ( No Alcohol) fee the expectation is for something better…

Also they never bothered to publish a menu for the event and everyone was sorely disappointed with just how few items they offered!!

Also they had live music playing inside at the bar where they were allowing lunch dining off the cheap menu … you would have thought the music would have been better enjoyed outside by the $100 plate customers !! Really dumb planning on the managements part…

I won’t be back next year.

We had a lovely table on the patio overlooking the golf course. The setting was lovely and our servers were attentive and thoughtful. This is a great place to go for a nice relaxing meal. The food was good, no complaints on the quality but it did seem a little high priced for what is was (salads, sandwiches and fries). We will return, perhaps for a Happy Hour or Dinner.

Service was excellent, atmosphere fantastic, food quality was fair, not as good as pre COVID, and cost was on the high side for the quality of the food. Example: bbq ribs were over cooked and fell off the bone to easily and were drowning in sauce, not the bbq ribs I remember from 2 years ago. But I will give them another chance as we really enjoyed the atmosphere and service.

It’s pricey — no two ways about it. For that price you are treated to elevated and inspired versions of your Chilis, Fridays, Applebee’s favorites. Don’t get me wrong, the food here is much, MUCH better than any of those places, but there is little on the menu that is very adventurous: Calimari, nachos, wings, burgers, sandwiches and a small selection of entrees ranging from shrimp scampi (angel hair $5 extra! Ha.) to salmon to steak.

BUT great service, stiff drinks, beautiful ambiance and some fun people watching. We’d definitely go back.

We've been going here for years, even through the pandemic, but it has taken a turn steeply downhill.. Prices are way up and quality is down. Pizza used to be one of our favorites, but now it tastes like frozen. A mixed green salad with salmon that used to be $22 is now $29.. A $4 charge just to split a salad! We won't be back for a while.

Very nice, peaceful setting - it was a Tuesday evening so no big crowds. It took a little too long to have server come to get drink orders (maybe short staffed?). Food was good, although found Shrimp Scampi order a bit small for the price. Wished they offered a larger wine by the glass selection. Overall a good experience. Yes, will be back.
