Decided to try the I'ON location with my best friend here visiting from from Texas. Of several places the two of us visited during his stay in town, O'Brion's actually did all of the basic things to make a customer feel like a necessary part of the business equation correctly. We managed to get a seat at a nice comfortable high top table, were greeted within seconds by a very lovely young lady (Eva) who was actually smiling and glad to be there, placed and received our beer order which arrived within a couple of minutes icy cold along with well chilled pint glasses, had our questions about the menu answered confidently, and proceeded to enjoy sports on the many quality flat panel screens without the annoying nuisance of loud blaring volume while waiting for our food. The food arrived quickly despite a sizeable crowd and my friend described the burger as the best he had enjoyed in Mount Pleasant. Likewise, the Cuban sandwich I received was total perfection on a plate. As a bit of a connoisseur of this particular sandwich, I must point out that this is the first time I have ever received a "true" Cuban made properly in this town and it tasted spectacular. My friend and I were quite happy that we were able to enjoy our experience at this O'Brion's location from the minute we walked through the door until we left feeling very satisfied that at least one place in Mount Pleasant actually has what it takes to earn the business and insure the return visit of its patrons.
Great food, great company and great Irish Cream!
A classic pub with all the trimmings, fine music, great beer (at great prices), and a friendly atmosphere where your first time in you are treated as a regular.
I've been to all three O'Brion's and have had nothing but good experiences. Staff is friendly and remembers your name and your drink of choice. The food has always been great - the Gamecock chicken sandwich is my favorite, but haven't had anything bad there. The staff also goes out of their way (physically and financially) to assist with fundraising efforts (both in the community and at their locations) for local charities or just people in need. All in all, you can't ask for a better neighborhood pub.
Great location, food's always great, bartenders are fun, very attentive and outgoing. Looking forward to football saturdays again at O'Brions!
Excellent food and service at both Mt Pleasant locations. I was recently at the James Island location for lunch, the food was quick and very good, my server was very friendly. The atmopshere is fun, locations are convenient, makes for a perfect place to watch any sporting event.
Great place to hang out with friends and make new ones...super guys and gals that work there. Can't wait to go back! See ya soon!
I was surprised at some of the reviews (mixed) so I decided to check the place out myself. After speaking to my server a well spoken Irish guy called Keith who informed me the chef was new & the food was sorted out I ordered the fish & chips which was cooked to perfection. I went back next day for "Happy Hour" from 3-7 & had the Shepards Pie, again cooked perfectly & the portion more than I could finish. I spoke to the Chef afterwards a very cool guy who gave me a tour of the kitchen very clean & lots of fresh produce. The staff are mostly Irish & very friendly the beer cold, food excellent, warm atmosphere. I would have no problem recomending Molly Darcy`s as a food critics dream. Martin F
Does great on covers like Citizen Cope and Bob Marley. And easy on the eyes!
Forgot the stars! Great job on Daniel Island
Great place to go for Beers and Music. Best part about this place is the Band, Bartenders, and Beers. It is not the best place to eat nor the best "Irish Bar" but the music and atmosphere has always made it ideal for me.
This is the finest pub I have been to in Carolina. The owners are friendly, the music great and - - the drinks are not bad either!
This was our last stop after spending the day in Charleston. My husband was thrilled to find Harp on tap. The bar and restaurant were beautiful and very welcoming. We had a quick appetizer and chatted with the bartender, a lovely young woman named Collette, a native of Ireland. We talked about Ireland and we left wanting to go back to Molly Darcy's and Ireland again.
O'Malleys is one of the better bars on upper king street.
The atmosphere is great, the food is surprisingly good, and the bartenders are very professional. I have been frequenting this bar for years and not even once have I had a poor customer-service experience.
This is my goto bar for NFL football. O'Malleys has solid food & drink specials during football games. This year it is $10 for a pitcher of highlife and a 1/4 lb burger.
I can't comment on the nightlife, but I did go by there for an early dinner/happy hour and had a great experience! The staff was very friendly and I think they've done a great job with the interior. Everyone at my table enjoyed the meals and I especially loved my chicken pot pie! I was happy to see a place finally go into this spot since Meritage closed and I'll definitely be going back.
We had the best time at this little bar! Stopped in for a beer in the mid afternoon, wound up staying for a bite to eat and several rounds. The atmosphere here is what really makes this place cool. The beer selection is terrific. Also, the fish & chips. Must have. omg.
Got crowded as we were getting ready to leave (maybe 8 pm or so), so I'd recommend trying to get over there early to really enjoy it and be able to grab a table. Best Irish Bar in Charleston!! LOVE IT!
I live in Columbia, but visit my sons in Charleston frequently. Being of Irish descent, I always make a bee-line for Madra Rua. Their service and food are always excellent. Their food and drink are priced right.
