O'Connell's is a hidden gem in south Huntington Beach. This Sports Bar has the best food around by far & the prices are inexpensive. My favorite item on the food menu is the NY Steak. It comes with your choice of a soup or salad & plenty of options for your sides. All this for around $15 so you definitely... More

Friday's special is fish and chips, it is crispy and not greasy if you are looking for some wonder fish and chips. The drinks are great! The place is like "Cheers", where everybody is a local.

Sports pub with more TVs than Fry's Electronics. Located in a strip mall. Popular dining spot for locals and, if you don't time it right, you might have to wait for a table. Worth the wait. One pool table. Well lit, not a dark, dank pub. Great food menu and service, with daily lunch and dinner specials. Was there for... More

From the moment you walk in you feel the claustrophobia begin. You expect noise, but this place seems a bit excessive. They have plenty of TV's, but if your game is not close you better have good eyesight. The food was ok but a bit pricey. Servers a too busy to get any info so it is drop and run... More

You could go to the $50.00 a person restaurants in southern California and get all dressed up or.... You can go to this place in casual shorts and sandals and have food as good or better for a 1/3 of the price. It's a sports bar with tv's everywhere in a strip mall. Do not be fooled by the location.... More

RJK333 hit it on the nose with the "Cheers Lives..." comment, the only thing I have to add is that they have a Maine Lobster Roll that's every bit as good as the one I had in Bar Harbor a few months ago, and it's only $10.95! You'd really be hard pressed to beat this deal. Have had the lobster... More

O'Connell's is a true locals place. It has been voted OC's Best Sports Bar and Best Dive Bar. Go for the $4.50 lunch specials. My favorites are Wednesday's cheeseburgers and Friday's meatball sandwiches. Dinners are really tasty. The baby back ribs are enough for two hungry people. The staff is great and it really is Cheers. Unless you are anti-social,... More

I stopped in Oct. 7th to watch the Packers play (bummer game). Nice place to watch NFL action and MLB or whatever sports. Place was packed with NFL fans from most teams. They have 26 TV's all next to each other wrapped around the bar with 3 or 4 TV's on each game. Two TV's were a little larger with... More
