Success! Thanks for posting your review of O'Brien's Irish Pub & Restaurant. You’ve done the world some good today.

Little worse for the wear, good bands on occasion

So this leans towards dive bar except for its location on Main St and that they offer food. I haven't eaten here so can't speak to that, but they have bands or karaoke some nights if you're looking for something to do. Has a patio in the front and the small music room in the back. Guess I've only gone because my friends were going so not my first choice.

When I think of Irish pubs, I think of Boondock Saints.

....And getting sloshed. maybe the occasional leprechaun cuz i'm ignorant. \r \r Needless to say, I did not get to experience any of those things for lunch today. I guess I can start with some positives. Service was good. Ridiculously good with the refilling of drinks. It's dark on the inside with dark wood and dark tables. Surrounded by flat screens, it's an ideal place to catch a game. Annnd I never seen so many ... view more

The attitude and service at this place is a poor representation of what Venice aims to be...

After reading a few of the reviews, I realize my experience with the extremely rude and horrible doorman is not unique. It's also interesting that he seems to admit more male customers than female. As I approached to enter the bar, the doorman asked for my ID and I olbiged and handed it to him. I explained I was meeting my friends inside. At which point he simply said, ""you can't go in"". When I inquired as to ... view more

Exactly what you expect

So I was SHOCKED to see a line on a saturday night for a DINGY Pub. Once I got inside, I was still shocked and didn't understand WHAT in the world the line was for. \r The place isn't swank or pretty, it's not newly renovated. It's a two room pub, nothing big or exciting. It's overcrowded at times. You can ALWAYS and easily get a drink however, and that's key at a pub!\r \r The LIVE MUSIC is WAY TOO LOUD but i... view more

Best Pub in Santa Monica

Comedy & music nights are enjoyable. Very laidback vibe. Mix of locals and people coming in from other parts of LA. Young crowd, but most docile environment for nightlife on main. Cool atmosphere, great drinks. good food. Bartender David is hilarious and makes the best mixed drinks and pours the best guinness. No attitude here at the door or from any of the staff inside. This pub is a great hub.

An unfortunate mistake, not to be repeated.

First time was the last time. There is NO parking. Once parking was found there was NO service. When I asked, for my date, if there was any food offered..I was told by the surly doorman ""NO"". No explaination, no suggestion, no manners. Didn't even look up.\r The beer selection was weak. The beer tasted tainted like line mold. The service almost unavailable and rude. If you need a hook-up for the night (plentifu... view more

Drink outside when you can!

The patio's definitely the reason to com here and people watch the girls heading to the different clubs on a Saturday night. Their drinks are strong and the crowd is chill. There's hardly any parking so thankfully you can have time to walk it off on your way back to the car.

Great place for a beer

I went here on Friday 11/10/06 around 5PM. \r My friend and I were the first people there and that's always cool.\r We sat outside on the patio and drank beer. \r The barkeep was cool. He was chill and friendly with a smile and I enjoy that at bars.\r Hate bars that have the ""What the eff do you want?"" attitude.\r \r Will definetly come here again. We left at *PM because we had to go to dinner but, by then th... view more

I love this place!

The staff and crowd is incredibly friendly. I live in the neighborhood and love dropping in for a bite to eat or a drink. My roommate and I went recently for their comedy night and had a great time- the comics were pretty funny, the bartender bought us drinks, and we made a couple of new friends. I highly recommend O'Brien's.
