Some nice beers on tap, lots of very good pub food, and we had a nice booth with a decent view of a TV (to watch sports). Service was good despite it being quite busy. Only drawback is this place shares a wall with a dance bar, so the acoustics on a Saturday night are T E R R I... More

I went out and bought a pitch of beer for $20! And it was not even the good kind. The only thing that I like about them was that the service was not too slow and the waitresses are friendly. And I love the view from the patio. But their prices are ridiculously expensive. I don't know if I would... More

Before enjoying ocktoberfest we decided to grab a bite to eat. This pub looked really good. There is a huge patio and the atmosphere was great. I can't tell you about the food because we were never waited on. The hostess/waitress sat us at our table and walked away without saying anything. We sat at the table for a few... More

We returned here, from a less than stellar previous encounter last year. I'm glad we gave it a second chance. We had dinner on the patio, on a gorgeous night. The food was better than the last time, and we had a pitcher, which given the heat, may not have been the best idea, as it was jut the two... More

Went to the blues festival today and wanted pizza. They changed the menu for the blues festival so the Menu was very limited. Then they served the 12 oz beer in a plastic glass for 6.50. We'd been the week before and were told we'd be able to watch the live band on their new jumbotron. Nope not that either... More

Great place on King Street to eat outside in good weather. Lots of umbrellas for shade and an outdoor bar to sit at too. Large menu available and we had the beef panini with salad and the turkey wrap with sweet potato fries. Large portions that were great tasting. The beer choice is good as is the wine available. They... More

Whenever my best friend and myself need a man's night out, we head for Bobby O'Briens. Located in the down town area of the City Of Kitchener, it's pud style atmosphere is very enjoyable and the beer and food is great. Always a good time can be had at Bobby O'Briens.
