A friend and I (and my dog Max) stopped here after hiking at the Old Man's Cave area. Jackie O's draft beer is excellent and the Pub/Brewery on Union St. is dog friendly at the back patio. However, go to Jackie O's Tap Room at...More

If you're going to be in Athens, drink here. We arrived just at closing of the pub but stepped next door into the brewery and enjoyed the bar area and the joining patio area of the pub & brewery. Large selection of Jackie O's crafts...More

The menu features an good selection of sandwiches, salads and pizzas. There is a craft brewery on site with a wide selection of beer styles. This is a comfortable casual place.

IPA brined wings were awesome! Definitely recommend. Mystic mama IPA is great. Burger was over cooked.... but flavors were good. We'll be back to try it again.

I had Jackie O's 3 different times while visiting Athens recently, and there were issues each time. The first time I ate in and had horrible service. The server was spending the majority of his time flirting with the female staff behind the bar. He...More

Unfriendly staff totally ignored us. I try very hard to be positive about restaurants in Athens, Ohio. Almost felt like Philly’s Starbucks moment, rude and unprofessional. Hope more people notice it.

One side is more of a bar atmosphere and the other more of a restaurant, but you can get food & beer at both. We sat in the restaurant side because it was a little quieter even though there was a half hour wait. It's...More

Jackie O’s Pub is worth a stop. We had the Ricky, an American golden ale. It was light and crisp. Atmosphere is just OK, but the beer selection is great! If you’re looking for let cal craft brews, Jackie O’s is it!

Unfortunately the only Motel close would be the Ohio University Inn on Richland Ave. It's about 3/4 of a mile from Jackies but easy walk and easy to get to. Jackies also has another location on Stimson Ave but it also isn't... More
