Spacious Irish pub with all the trimmings near AT&T Park. – In Short
Decorated from floor to ceiling with requisite sports, Guinness and pro-Irish paraphernalia, this roomy, SoMa pub offers pints, grub and mixed-drink shooters steps from the ballpark. Cozy pockets of comfortable booths, bench seating and tables for two frame a large, three-sided, square bar which gets packed on game nights. Lunch and dinner menu options include burgers, sandwiches, and extras such as mussels in Guinness and garlic. The Irish coffee here is made with Illy Italian coffee, but most just come for the beer.
very unfriendly bouncers – stopped by before a giants game. i just got through reading the sign behind the bar telling the patrons how friendly the staff is and how it's all about the patron when a door guy comes up behing me and says, "i'm gonna need your stool". i had no idea the thug worked there and thought i was being mugged. he was trying (successfully) to be real intimidating. so i say,"what do you mean you need my seat?" so he tells me he needs to take like he took everyone elses. apparently i was sitting in a 'no stool zone'. i then realized he works there. so i told this idiot that he should've told me he works there before demanding my stool. didn't go over well. so the rest of the time i was there, i observed him and the other gorilla at the door. two of some of the biggest jerks i've ever encountered. a real turn-off. probably won't go back. the bar staff in contrast was friendly.
very pretty and nice servers,great live bands!! – I go to Oneills all the time and the food is great,theyour arm off and beat staff is amazing. The bouncers look like theyd rip your arms off and beat you with them but they are some of the nicest blokes around. 3 Cheers to O'neills for the great improvments!!
Nothing Like a Great Pint and a Great Irish Breakfast – I've had Very Good Lunches at O'Neill's but nothin's says Lovin' like a Great Irish Breakfast and a nice pint of Guinness!! My plan moving forward is to go in for breakfast a few hours before the Giants game. I highly recommend it!!
Shite – Lousy, slow bar, awful food. Overpriced. Why bother? there are many other decent bars around. I go to the Chophouse. This is a tourist's idea of what an Irish pub should be; Un-authentic, boring and commercial. The owner has pictures of himself on the wall. Very un-Irish.
Great Service and Atmosphere – I was visting San Francisco 6 months ago and wanted to grab a few beers and a game and stumbled across the best Irish Pub I've ever been in. Great crowd (meet my girlfriend there), great service (Eron helped me a ton with a surprise Valentine's Day gift), and great atmosphere. Everytime I go back I'll stop at O'Neill's. For those of you who are lucky enough to live in San Francisco you need to make the trip. It's well worth it.
Great place with or without baseball season – During Giants season the place was packed and so much fun. I visited it again once the season was over thinking it might not be as lively as before. To my surprise the place was packed! It's become a great neighborhood pub! The food is great, the staff is friendly, and the live bands are wonderful. I came in for pub quiz and had so much fun. Overall its a great place.
They serve a fantastic fish and chips, very large portions. try the kiddie Order for size. – It was my first visit to a Pub and I thought the experience was such a treat. the place had a very homy, earthy ,European appeal. I would say really authentic because It had all sorts of wall decor ,paraphernalia, Irish quotes and sayings on the walls and ceiling. It was fascinating to see and look at. i'd say the owners spent a whole lot of time and effort in the construction, because of the History and culture they invesed in the place.
I swear the food tastes extremely awsome. I love the real down to earth Dublin feel of the food served. They have a full Irish breakfast, which you just can not get anywhere in America..
Lunch for One – I came in by myself on a weekday for lunch. I walked in and there was about six people in the bar. Their menu consisted of pub grub like burgers, fish and chips, and shepards pie. The food came out quickly and I had a nice chat with the bartender, Kelly. I liked the breading that they used for the fish and chips, and their coleslaw was not runny or tasteless. My first experience was awesome and I hope that everyone else has a great time. They also have PUB QUIZ on Sunday nights.... and excellent addition to the neighborhood.
Night Life Finally – I have to tell you i have a Bouncer in the area a WHILE and finally a pub that is open until 2:00am, I found the doorstaff to be very professional and curtis! The bar staff is amazing, I have been hanging out since the new pub opened and have meet some kind people, on some occassions celebraties have popped in where they were treated just like an average joe. All I have to say is GO O'NEILLS you are doing just wonderfull in your new location!
