This small restaurant is tucked in a strip mall and has been part of this area for several years. Many other restaurants have come and gone in this area but O'Brien's carries on.
From the wonderful seafood soups, chowders and appetizers to the fresh catches of the day, we have never been disappointed with a meal here. Everything is fresh, excellently prepared and perfectly seasoned. Plus there is a full bar and several dessert choices.
This place has a friendly family atmosphere and after your first visit, you will feel like part of the family and look forward to your next visit. Give O'Brien's a try, you'll be glad you did.

A group of us enjoy going to O'Briens's during lunch. This is our special treat every few months. The wait staff is pleasant and the food is very good. Looking forward to my next luncheon out with the group.

It is a bar-type restaurant, but not your typical bar-type menu.

Stopped in here while in the area. Service was fine, nothing spectacular. Food was good, a bit on the pricey side for the size of the portions. So, not too bad.

The restaurant is a bat/restaurant and very quaint. Service and food was excellent. Many fish and seafood dishes. Prices are a little expensive

The place is not as bad as some of the reviews here would lead you to believe. True, the prices are a bit high. True, some of the seafood entrees are frozen. What do you expect from a strip mall joint in Michigan? OK, the imitation crab in some of the dishes are a faux pas but at least they don't try to pass it off as the real deal. Clearly listed as "Krab" not "Crab". The service is very good. The atmosphere is quaint and cozy. The prices are a little high vs the quality of the food but not outrageous. Everything I ordered was decent. If you need everything "Fresh off the boat" move to the coast already.
