Been coming here for years, and have seen lots of changes during that time. This is a good place to come for a meal, for a beer, for brunch or to catch up with friends. The food has been consistently good (love the fish and...More

Crowds in and out, hard working staff, fish and chips and friendly patrons all jolly and always a beer in hand. If you want to be part of the crowd, this is the place.

Love this little place and love the patio in the summer. The Magners Cider in the chilled glass is da bomb here. Keep on rocking it!

We've been to O'Faolains a couple of times and the experience was always decent. Not great but for a neighborhood bar/restaurant to grab a bite to eat and have a drink it isn't too bad. Our latest visit was this past weekend for brunch. Our...More

Unfortunately, these types of restaurants are not around like they used to be. Seems these types of restaurants are being replaced by Latin American/South American restaurants. Glad to find O'Faolain's Irish Pub and try them for the first time. Waitress is friendly and attentive. We...More

Description
Our menu naturally features many favorite traditional dishes but also reflects contemporary Ireland with its strong European culinary influences. However what the Irish value most in their hospitality is its friendliness.
