Isaac’s Restaurant Review: O’Brien’s Pub

Located in a strip mall across from a car dealership, O’Brien’s is a hidden oasis close enough for law students to adjourn to after a long day of classes and studying. Known as “the hoppiest place on Earth,” O’Brien’s offers an enormous selection of beer on tap and in bottles. With 20 beers on tap and over 90 different bottled beers, including many local beers, you are sure to find something you like. The beers on tap change constantly, so there will always be something new to try.

In addition to a ridiculously large selection of beer, O’Brien’s has a great selection of soups, salads, sandwiches, and burgers. They also have a dartboard if you are feeling sporty, TVs showing various sports if you are feeling vicariously sporty, and a heated patio if you are in the mood for fresh air.

Thus far, I have tasted the Spicy Beer Cheese Burger and the Brie Prosciutto Burger. The Spicy Beer Cheese Burger is made with white cheddar combined with Russian River IPA. It was massive and cooked perfectly. The cheese literally melted in my mouth, and the beer flavor blended surprisingly well with the rest of the burger. The prosciutto burger had sweet grilled onions that melded beautifully with the salty prosciutto and melted brie.

Ordering at the counter and having the food brought to my table by the waiters was fast and easy. While waiting for my order, I enjoyed watching the motley crew of cord-wearing grad students, dart sharks, and silver foxes. The staff was very friendly and let me sample a few different beers to determine which was best for me. Prices are very reasonable with burgers ranging from five to eight dollars and 12-ounce beers starting at $2.50. O’Brien’s Pub also has good daily beer specials!

O’Brien’s is located at 4646 Convoy Street. You can check out their menu and beer list at The parking lot of the strip mall fills up pretty quickly, but there is a lot of parking on the street.
