I’ve been coming to this restaurant for years for brunch. I was a little disappointed by the selection this time. There used to be a lot more food set out and variety. It’s seem to be more expensive now which I don’t mind but only if they have more food to choose from. Our server was fine but we had to ask a few times for more water and coffee. Sitting outside is lovely until the smoker takes over your senses. The hostess was very sweet.

Love the out-of-the-way feel of this restaurant. When you are outside, you don't realize how close civilization is. Totally recommend the salmon. Nice wine selection too!

We had brunch at O'Neill's on Christmas Day. It was our first visit, and we couldn't have been happier with our experience. The restaurant itself has a rustic and charming look. We were seated on the patio overlooking the golf course, with a scenic view of the Saddleback Mountains in the background. Even though there was live music playing, and the patio was full and bustling with other patrons, somehow our table felt private and the noise level was low enough to easily have family conversations. I think the tables are spaced out well, and the foliage and landscaping absorb distracting noise. The brunch buffet offered a lot of wonderful choices, from seafood, roasted meats, salads and veggies to typical breakfast foods such as waffles, French toast, and custom omelets. Everyone in the family, including our picky teenagers, found something to enjoy. My favorites were the winter spiced French toast and the seared salmon. The dessert table was tempting, and I liked that the portions were small so that you could have a sampling of different goodies. The quality of the food was high and everything was well prepared and delicious. We also throughly enjoyed the live music, featuring a very talented singer and keyboardist. Their rendition of Louis Armstrong's "It's a Wonderful World" was amazing and had us applauding. The service was good, too, even though they were busy. Overall it was just a very enjoyable Christmas Brunch at O'Neills. We're happy that we found this hidden gem and are looking forward to coming back soon for lunch or dinner.

We have eaten here on many occasions both post golf and just for a meal. Usually we eat outside to watch final hole on course but it was to cold and windy this time. Food and services were very good.

Jose (and his team) came through for us once again. The high quality service coupled with excellent menu offerings cannot be beat. Our a\occasion this week was business meal and the guests were delighted with the food, service and engaging conversation. All because the location was perfect for what we wanted to accomplish. Thanks so much for strengthening the ties within our group. You enhanced our loyalty to you once again.

Their services was excellent. I called 30min before our reservation time to get another possible time and they did. Made our thanksgiving possible. Our server Britney was great and her team member Lazz made sure she gad extra support as we asked him for a other questions. They never rush us to leave and made our time memorable.

Chose this restaurant because it had a kids' menu. Kids loved it.
Staff is great! The waiter overheard that one of our party had an upcoming birthday which was part of our reason for dinner. He brought a birthday dessert without being asked.
Good value for money.

O'Neill's at the Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club is a favorite of ours with the great food, friendly and helpful staff and one-of-kind ambiance in south OC. A visit there feels like a mini-vacation, which makes for a great date night destination for parents. Highly recommend it!

Terrible service - waiter was MIA most of the night. We also waited over an hour for our food! We waited so long we were about to leave when the food arrived. The food was mediocre at best and the waiter never offered to refill our drinks and never even brought my drink order. I would have asked for my drink but he was no where in sight. We were dining with our kids on a school night and with the delay in getting our order, led to a very late night. I will never return to this restaurant again.

The staff takes great care of the table and guests. Reservations are most accommodating. Great for business conversations. Salmon salad is outstanding. Smoked meats are extra-ordinary. Neighborhood location worth finding. Many guests are surprised it’s so close, yet feels like a get-away. Even if you’re not a golfer, you’ll love the location.

This is a lovely spot for Sunday brunch - especially if you request a patio table. The patio overlooks the golf course, a pond, ducks and geese wander and the big oak trees and sycamore trees lend the feeling that I have gone far, far away... instead of just a couple of off ramps down the freeway. The brunch choices are excellent - the BBQ stations adds another component not usually found in a buffet-style setting. The food is excellent. The choices are abundant. The service staff is friendly and accommodating. I have been many times and will continue to go. Dianne

We had the filet mignon on for dinner, seriously one of the best steaks I have had in Orange County!
Only thing to watch out for if you sit on the patio is the mosquitoes that fly around and seem to hang out under the table (Either spray yourself or eat inside). I have taken home numerous itchy bites on several occasions. The patios proximity to the golf course is always a challenge when it comes to insects but food is always good!

We normally go to breakfast on Saturday mornings but decided to do a Friday night dinner. They were packed, more than usual, so service and food delivery was extremely slow. But how can you complain when you are sitting in such a beautiful spot overlooking the lake and fairway? Food is, of course, fantastic. We were in no hurry, so the wait was OK with us. Great place to eat and enjoy friends.

Beautiful setting! Excellent service! Usually love their food and my husband and I loved his hanger steak, but I got the tri tip. I usually love it because they smoke it right there on the premises. This time the meat had an unusual sauce and it lost its great flavor. We have been coming here for over eight years and this was the first time I was disappointed. The wedge salad however, was delicious and the flourless chocolate cake was amazing! They have a great wine list too! We got married here and have celebrated all 7 anniversaries here because of the food and setting!

With rising cost, understandably restaurant has subtly reduced food offerings - from sushi/sashimi to diced tuna, fewer choices of cheese, fewer grilled meat choices, fewer hot entrees and side dishes. It is still a very nice place for Sunday brunch with very good services. Perhaps, the restaurant is at the cusp between cutting cost and increasing price. My preference is moderate price increase for interesting varieties; after all Sunday brunch is a pleasurable indulgence.

We came to O'Neill's last month and enjoyed our late afternoon lunch so much! Unfortunately on this recent visit, we were quite disappointed. Sat outside and the view was lovely, but the problem was with the food. We had the French Dip sandwich both times. The first time we both thought the sandwich was absolutely delicious. This time, however, it had no flavor at all and we were both disappointed. Also, the onion rings were fantastic the first time and this time they were over cooked (not burnt, but a very dark brown) and didn't taste nearly as good. Service also was a little less impressive this trip. All in all, we were disappointed and won't be rushing back.
