Tried their frozen and iced Amaretto and I was very satisfied. Appetizers are also worth trying like the nachos. Perfect combi!

Visited this place as we could smell the BBQ outside. There were quite a few people in this place already and looked somewhat busy. They had bottled beer along with Gin & Tonic, so that was is sorted. Staff are very friendly along with the drinks being cheap. Would recommend this place to anyone looking for good food, good drinks... More

We came here for a decent feed with food and beer at cheap prices and were more than satisfied. My husband and I had 2 beers and 2 mains for 705PhP. We were there fairly early (around 7pm) so the place wasn't crowed but it started filling up around 7:30 - 8. I chose the sirloin burger (which is just... More

Very nice bar but I had to leave because I could stop watching the basketball on the TV and I was being antisocial

It has it's own style, it's an old pub, friendly staff, cold beer. I had fried fish, which was good. They also have a barbecue in front. The music playing was also good, glad i went there. You should also try the local coconut liquor lambanog

It may be dark and dingy, but the people in the place were the friendliest that I had met in a long time. College students wanting to practice their English. Working class wanting to just talk, and owner that tried to find me a bottle of Rye.

Thank you for taking time to let us know your impressions of the place - and your kind remarks about the friendliness. We can try to be 'light and airy' instead of 'dark and dingy', but since this is a real place that serves folk who just want to drink and eat, we will just stick to keep those two... More

I've been here previously and visited again when I found myself staying nearby. The bar has seen better days and for me, is pretty filthy as they still allow smoking in the bar. They have some decisions to make for who they want as clientele. In this day and age, few people want to sit and have a meal (and... More

Oarhouse is a small, (very small) bar hole in the wall place to try and relax from the crazines of the city for a while. Decorations/atmosphere are all over the map, from the namesake wooden oars to a Rolling Stones at Altamont poster, to Steelers stuff on the walls to local trinkets and mementos. Prices are reasonable and the service... More
