Conveniently in complex with The Grace Hotel, it was accessible late night dining for tired feet. Menu and food ordered were above average for pub fare. Disappointed that daily special - fish and chips - had sold out by 9PM. Slow service and overly loud...More

Had an important business lunch. Needed to be quick but nice. Went to PJ O'Brien's as I was nearby. Wasn't disappointed. The Irish Stew was quite tasty, plentiful, served lightening fast and was quite good value. The decor was gorgeous and the crowd was 'professional'....More

Popped in for a burger and a pint after a half hour of wandering the CBD looking for dinner. Service was fast and the burger was very tasty, as was my Fat Yak.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens

Our kitchen offers a variety of savoury Irish dishes, pizza and contemporary pub meals. Let the friendly staff at P.J.O'Brien's make your day or night an occasion to remember, come in, kick back and discover the 'craic' that P.J.O'Brien's is famous for
