They had our space ready and it was in the back so we could speak freely and it wasn’t loud at all. The serve was perfect! Prices were a value add, Taco Tuesday and fast lunch specials kept us in our budget AND it was so yummy! We will be back!

I got it to go, took it home and doctored it up to make it edible. The seafood tower was OK, price was decent at $35. Crabcake was excellent. Service was very good. Just know that this is an older dive bar if you select it for a nice time out. If you’re looking for ambience, this ain’t it.

Keep in mind they’re not from Maryland they are from the north east so their idea of seafood favoring different however I was well please. The imperial was impeccable, the salmon was perfect, shrimp, I’m in Maryland or Massachusetts who can mess up shrimp? The amount of food we got for what we paid I felt were proportionate.

They seated us at a table in a private room, our waitress was sweet as can be, and the food was delicious. On a holiday where we expected the restaurant to be busy, noisy and slow, O'Brien's went above and beyond to make our Mother's Day one to remember. Highly recommend for all of your special events.

Watery cocktail. High price for the quality. It’s in a good location and probably gets by on tourists, as opposed to having to retain customers locally.

We were seated and while we were sitting another table was seated after us, their waitress came, took their orders and brought their drinks before our ever showed up. When it was time to pay the check it was impossible to get a hold of our waitress to do so. Overall we were very disappointed by the service quality.

The food was just ok. I asked for a medium well burger and it was well done. I don’t send food back so I just ate it. The crab dip was ok the crab to cheese ratio was really off. Pretty much a cheese dip.

The food was cold with zero embellishments. When I asked for butter for my lobster tail that “warmed” it up. The steak was terrible. The “filet” was so tuff it was better and easier to cut pieces off the “top” cutting side ways vs how you would normally eat steak. Management was a joke and was storming through doors. It was not even close to busy and everything about this place screamed I need help from upper leadership. Do better plain and simple. We had a party of 6 and everyone’s good from the ahi tuna to scallops was not cooked right and was not worth half what we spent. Wait there is a positive….. one person from our party ordered a crown and coke and the “bartender fill in(if I’m lying I’m dying)” poured half a glass of crown with a splash of coke…..

It started with my wife and I ordering drinks. I got iced tea with lemon, unsweetened. She got water and a Stella on draft. The server brought her an iced tea and me a water. He said it'll be a while for the beer because the bar is backed up. Food was okay. Her cheeseburger was run of the mill. My grouper was frozen fish and had very little crab in the imperial. High prices and poor service. There are better places to eat downtown. Try McGarvy's or Middletown's.

The noise level was low, the service was friendly and efficient. The menu is great, because you can have brunch or choose off their large, all day menu. We really enjoyed our server, Caden, who understood that we wanted time to visit and catch up with each other. Thanks for a nice Sunday outing!

The raw oysters in general were mediocre and some were warm. We probably should have sent them back and worried for several days about getting sick. Fortunately, we did not.

Food came out fast - oyster were big and delicious - the crab cake sandwich did not disappoint It was very loud at first there was a table with 8 ppl who VERY loud. Once they left = the noise level was fine.

The food (we got omelets) was average, maybe even less than. It is a very limited menu for the special to apply. The bottomless drinks were great! Next time I would order off the regular breakfast menu and just get the bottomless drinks separately rather than doing the special.
