J.B. O’Brien’s Pub & Sports Bar

A neighborhood gathering place

Co-owner John Howard is a down-to-earth guy with a love for pubs. He keeps 4 to 5 amazing IPAs on tap at all times, and an enormous selection of drinks. Try the Bloody Mary. Really.

John says, “It is a true public house. Anyone can come in and feel comfortable. My kitchen manager and his wife are from Mexico, so all the Mexican food is made right here, although I never thought I’d sell Mexican food. My philosophy is to keep it small and keep it friendly. Our focus is food and conversation. We’re a pub. People come to eat and have a drink.”

21 & Over Only

Like all good Irish Pubs, the place has a ton of memorabilia on the walls and extra rooms with standing bars and video poker. No live music, the place gets plenty loud depending on how the games are doing. This is a real Local Irish Pub, not Applebees. It’s beat up. It’s dark, even in the daylight. Need something? If the staff looks preoccupied, just wave em down or, better yet raise your glass.

Irish + Mexican + American

Everything is made from scratch, and the pub menu varies. You’ll find J.B.’s riffs on of Corned Beef & Cabbage, Irish Stew and Shepherds Pie. There’s authentic Mexican food, thanks to the chef and his wife who love to cook. J.B.’s has Steaks, Chicken, messy Burgers, big Salads. Explore ‘ you’ll find your favorites.

John says, “There’s a good crowd of people who come in regularly at the same time every week , especially during Happy Hour , to sit at their table and place orders with their server ‘ we have 27 items on there so it’s a popular deal.”
