This is probably my favorite place in Jersey City. Excellent crowd and very diverse! The food is awesome, the service is pleasant and are genuinely happy there! The owner is an excellent guy! No reason not to try it out!

We were immediately seen to and given a table, they turned the television channel over for us and offered to move us closer to the TV - great service. The food was excellent, as were the drinks and we spent a very pleasant evening wondering what was going on in the Rio Opening ceremony. I would recommend to anyone -... More

I met some clients at this local pub one night while in the City. easy to get to, friendly staff, and pretty good food. Good beer selection, ok Ruben. We got out of there before the armature karaoke event - not our style.

This is a great place to watch any kind of sports. Lots of TV's, good food, friendly and attentive staff, and friendly locals as well. Went there to watch the Yankees game, and got sucked into the Tuesday night Trivia... so much fun!

We had dinner with a group of 10. We got call ahead so we didn't have to wait. Good selection of burgers and other entries. Most dinners are $10-14. Parking is a little tough. We parked in the grocery store about a block away.

I stay very close to O'Hara's and have visited it twice - once on a weekday and once on a Friday. I saw surprised to see that it was quite packed on both days.

I stayed nearby in an expensive hotel. To attend happy hour here and watch games on the weekend, I found this Sports bar with excellent pub food, enough TV's and attentive staff. Sunday NFL Ticket was comparable to Upper Eastside gems like Jack Russel's. Have the French Onion Soup! A real plus was the (this is a compliment) Jersey accent... More
