Friend of mine had a Groupon she needed to use. I have lived here for quite some time and never been to this restaurant. I was surprised. Very nice place to go on a date. I went with some friends and we all enjoyed our meals ... Great selection of steak and seafood. I had the scallop pastry plate. Yummmm... More

Bought a Groupon while we were visiting in town and really enjoyed everything about the restaurant! The service, atmosphere, wine list and food was great. Homemade salad dressing and cooked to order entrees. We both had rack of lamb. I would even go back to O'Briens without a coupon.

We had the Filet Mignon and Obrien's Sirloin. Both were cooked as ordered. Wife had the filet with a salad, The filet was presented with a sauce that may have been bordelaise but was reminiscent of the "Debris Sauce" at K-Paul's in New Orleans plus mashed potatoes, and spinach. The sirloin was preceded by a cup of hearty black bean... More

O'Briens is a very nice locally owned and operated restaurant. You will find the service is superior and the dishes well prepared. The menu is broad and there is much to enjoy. Try O'Briens for lunch or dinner. I will return to enjoy meals here again.

Three of us decided to try out this place for supper. We ordered the French onion soup, salad, pork tenderloin & Chicken Cordon Bleu. All the food was good, One of our party was male & his complaint was that were only 2 vegetable choices, asparagus & sauteed spinach, neither of which he like.

A great unique approach to dining. The chef has put together an eclectic collection of dishes for both seafood and meat lovers. We focused on the fish, and found wonderful flavors for our grouper. The appetizers were outstanding. The crabcakes were crab with very little filler. The salmon was moist thin, and tender. The wine list was limited, but they... More

O'Brien's Bistro is always a wonderful place for fine dining. - I met 3 friends there this afternoon for lunch (I had my 2 year old grandson in tow!) and had the best time. DOUG was our waiter. He was so kind and extremely efficient. He saw that my grandson was getting hungry and brought him chicken nuggets and chips... More

Been here 3 times in last 3 months, all casual business dinners. Tonite I had Elk and it was so tender, very flavorful. The server was completely open to substitutions and offered alternatives.
