We went there for dinner and were pleased with the quality of the atmosphere, service, and food. We sat outside which was a nice change of pace. It was cozy, the staff was attentive, and the food was good. I would eat there again but to be honest, there are other restaurants in Ouray that I would try next time... More

We went in to warm up and eat lunch. Burger was good, but stew was disappointing. I ordered hot chocolate with a splash of Bailey's. What I didn't expect was a full shot of Bailey's on the side. More of a warm-up than I was expecting, but it was good! Service was friendly and good.

I go to O'Brien's to enjoy Guinness on tap. The menu is pub fare, and that is a good thing. I usually have a meal, dinner, because I typically visit O'Brien's following a strenuous day in the mountains that surround Ouray. The food has always been properly prepared and hit the spot for me. Good pub food and Great Beer,... More

After staying at The Strater Hotel in Durango where we ordered 1/2 size meals for breakfast which were sooooo filling, and due to the general size of meals we have had so far in the US, we thought that we would order the full size fish and chips for $18.00 and share it between two people - 4 fish fillets...

I'm sorry you had a poor experience but I believe you have the wrong Irish Pub. Our fish and chips are some of the best in the world and we only charge $8 for a half order and $15 for a full order. If you were staying at the Starter Hotel in Durango you were probably at the Irish Embassy... More

Our food was pretty good. The best part of the night was that our waitress and bartender moved our table and we got to spend the remainder of our evening playing darts. There were six of us-ranging in age from 14 to 79-on a mini-family trip and had the best time ever having drinks (non alc's for the teens!!) and... More

It was ok. Seemed like it was mostly frozen type foods. It was a good meal...but nothing extraordinary!

They were very busy the night we went there so the service was slow and not rally attentive. The food was good but the person who waited on us knew ***** about the beers on draft.

This place was awesome, not too croweded adn the Reuben was fantastic. It was small and not very dark like I like most bars, there were also kids in there, so not very bar'ish but worth it no matter what!

Worst corned beef and cabbage I have ever had. The cabbage was OK but the beef was like chipped beef from a jar.

We patronized this pub on a very quiet day. The waitperson was attentive and pleasant. I ordered fish and chips for the two of us and an order of onion rings. They would not substitute the onion rings for the fries so there was an additional charge. The fish was cooked to perfection and the onion rings, (though pricey) were... More
