During an unusually rainy day we stopped in for a beer and maybe quick lunch. O'Sullivan's had a great atmosphere and helpful server. Draft and Irish stew were both great. Highly recommend for a lunch.

Approaching O'Sullivan's you can sense the ambiance of this location. It has small town charm and street parking. The decor is authentic and the menu as well. What was really fantastic besides the soul food was the waitress, she was attentive, and one of the best. You just feel good being here, very inviting atmosphere. I had a Reuben, super... More

We have had numerous meals at R O'Sullivan's Irish Pub and find both the atmosphere and the food to be top of the line. We have visited Ireland several times and have not had a Corned Beef and Cabbage dinner that is any better than what we get at O'Sullivans. The wait staff is efficient and knowledgeable and makes you... More

The waitress was the best I've ever had! She was attentive, but not annoying, she had great suggestions, she was sweet to my teenager, she was quick with the drinks and food. Just loved her! The food was GREAT also

We have a time share in Escondido and this year since my workplace is closed for remodeling I thought my parents and I could go up that way for my birthday. I searched for Irish pubs in the area because I love the occasional Guinness but not many bars outside of pubs serve it. I can see now why the... More

We had dinner at this place while visiting the Escondido area recently and had visited it once before a year or so back. The service was friendly and attentive. The menu items were not to my taste however, the wife thought the food was very good overall. They also did not have the variety of imported ciders and beers that... More

After checking out the cars - check out this pub! They have a great selection of beers on tap, and a great dinner menu. I was going to have the fish and chips but changed to a Rueben sandwich at the last minute as some restaurants scrimp on the fish. Well, the Rueben was great - but then what did... More

The only parking is street side and the premises are small with limited seating. Since there were six of us it was difficult to get seats together. The food was good but not one of those meals that everyone was excited about.

We wanted to check out Grand Ave and downtown Escondido. From the outside looking in, the windows were so dark you could not see inside. We were initially worried no one was there which would have been a bad sign, but as we opened the door we discovered a cute little pub. We had read the reviews which were decent... More

Been there many times. Not that it's a fine dinning or the best food in town, but the food is good and consistent. It's good comfort food. Not had a bad fare there. Some evenings music can be a bit loud, but it is live. Good for lunch too.
