Good food, good service. My Daughter enjoyed her Stuffed Rockfish A+, and the Oysters were excellent(A+). Crabcake was a B. Draft Beer was an A, and the overall atmosphere was a B+.
The service was an A, as the Waitress made frequent visits to make sure we were taken care of.
The restaurant was the perfect place for a family meal celebration. Very family friendly and the food was great.
The raw oysters were tasty and cold. The crab cake -- a Maryland specialty -- was very crabby, but bland. The waitress specifically recommended the fries as a side, so we thought we'd get something special. But they were standard, salty, previously frozen restaurant fries -- nothing to write home about. But the roasted brussels sprouts were really good. Bottom line: They're surrounded by restaurants with better food, ambience, and service.
The service, food etc was great
Food was delicious! Service was excellent!
Great food and great service. Nice and quiet ambiance.
We were seated at almost 9pm. Our waitress was very nice and did a good job. The ambiance quickly went downhill when the pounding music from the bar started.
Wish we had earlier reservations for dinner.
Great time for all! Went to a game at Navy stadium and stopped in after. Very fun place, good service and the food was perfect, especially the oysters, and the beer selection was awesome. Delizioso!! -and I'm not even Italian. If you're looking for a nice relaxing pub in the heart of Annapolis, this is the place.
It was Christmas Day. Despite being shorthand, both the service and food was great.
Tasty food options and friendly service. We had a great dinner there on Christmas.
We went to O'Brien's for Christmas dinner. The food was good but the service was very slow. There weren't enough servers plus it didn't seem like they were assigned areas of the restaurant; the servers had tables all over the restaurant.
Unbelievable service and the waitstaff was so great.
Open on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
We have had many nice dinners here in the past. This last visit was awful. Four of five meals came out. Tho one meal for our pregnant daughter did not. We had to flag down our waitress to ask about it. She finally came back and said it never got submitted to the kitchen. All of our meals were finished before a random person brought out my daughters food. The waitress finally came back and said the meal wld be comped. A manager came and said the same thing- and that the kitchen was busy. Our waitress was not very attentive. And we had less than a pleasant family meal. Very disappointing...
We were extremely happy with where our large group was seated, the service was great and the food was very good. Our table was upstairs and our poor waitress had to run up and down the stairs to wait on us. She did a great job and was very attentive.
Sooooo loud but we were able to move to a table in the back and it got a tiny bit quieter. We ate at 4:30 so It wasn’t even prime time but regardless food was good!
Haven’t been to O’Brien’s in quite a while. What a pleasant surprise. We will be going back on a regular basis.
We would recommend O'Brien's but only if you eat in the bar area. We came to the restaurant in the afternoon to watch football and had a great time. Food and service were great so we came back for dinner. Big mistake. The food was mediocre (other than the awesome cream of crab soup) and the service was lacking. We'll be back but NOT for dinner.
Travel to Annapolis for the weekend. Disappointed with dining experience.
Great spot for dinner the night before Thanksgiving!
For those who ordered the raw orders, crab cake, they were not disappointed. The other meals were not very good, some inedible, but most too polite to send back. Wait staff was excellent, very accommodating, noise level from giant tv screen in back room got very loud, but staff was accommodating in turning down until we left.
Angry clams were way over sized more like chowder clams, which made him very tough.
Rockfish dinner with the shrimp sauce on top was horrible
Great time at my birthday party! They gave us a great space and they were very accommodating with the festivities. Really good food, loved the crab dip and really enjoyed the salmon for dinner.
Great location for downtown Annapolis. Broad seafood menu. Our meal completely met our expectations at reasonable prices.
It is more of a bar than restaurant. Food was just O.K.
Food was decent, ambiance just a big room, a little loud. No major complaints, but nothing exceptional either. Service was great and accommodating.
We went to O'Brien's on a Saturday evening. The restaurant has a perfect location right in the heart of Annapolis. The server was very polite and prompt. I had a dozen mussels and the fish tacos. Both were very good. Only downside was that we were seated in one of the back rooms where there was little atmosphere and only three other tables occupied. It was quiet but we were looking for a more lively night out. Would definitely go back but next time, we will grab a seat at the bar or wait for a table outside.
Food was really good. Big menu of mostly comfort food on the heavier side, but my family loved everything. I had a delicious beet salad, and the tuna poke was tasty too. Great service. Ambience is classic pub. Lighting was a little bit bright for dinner, but the room was very comfortable, big table, friendly helpful wait-staff. One thing to know is that the back room adjacent to the dining room turns into a dance party at 10 pm and it’s loud. (It was not loud before that.) My only criticism is that the ladies’ room was truly disgusting, and stayed that way for over two hours. I hate to see that in a restaurant. Otherwise, great place for dinner. I’d definitely go back.

Loved this place! Brought 10 people here after a day of sailing. Amazing crew and service! Split our checks and it easy for us. Then, the DJ started playing music around 10:00, and we all had a blast dancing until we had to catch our water taxi. So much fun! Will definitely return!
Best crabcakes I've ever had. Staff was friendly, service was great, food was outstanding.
Was there for a friend’s bachelor party. They easily accommodated us. The oysters are great. Interesting cocktails. Strongly recommend the crab pretzel
Excellent and accommodating.
Excellent seafood tower for two with oyster Rockefeller, shrimp cocktail and fried calamari.
Really enjoyed the fresh oysters and the steamed mussels are amazing. Friendly service.
A gem in the middle of historic Annapolis.
