. Came with a family party of 6 on a Sunday about 5:00 pm. The place wasn’t very busy. We asked for a booth and ended up in one where the sun was in a couple of our parties eyes. Waitress came and we ordered...drinks. They were out of Harps so I settled for a Kilkenny. Son in law ordered a cocktail that included raspberry and my grandson a raspberry slush. Even though they weren’t busy (staff were standing around talking to each other) the waitress came back in a while only to inform us that they were out of raspberry syrup so couldn’t make either the slush or cocktail. Switched to strawberry. Drinks finally came sans my grandson’s. After a while longer waitress came by to tell us that they screwed up the drink and it was some grapefruit mango concoction but would we accept it. One taste and my grandson asked for what he ordered, which took more time. We went ahead and placed orders. Appetizers of a Margarita flatbread that was fine and calamari that was straight from the freezer to the fryer,not good. Son in law ordered a burger for which he requested extra sauce that never came. My wife had a “steak sandwich “ that turned out to be a small sirloin on a slice of toast. Not sure where the Himalayan salt was. I had the Extreme Pachos, advertised with spicy beef and jalapeño’s. There was absolutely nothing “spicy” about it. My daughter had the chicken lettuce wrap that was average. The saving grace of the meal was dessert, both chocolate conspiracy and mud pie were delicious. All in all for a slow night with slow service and only average food this would not be my choice for dinner.More

I have been going to Kelly O briens for over 30 years way back when Reg first started in Kelowna.it is an Irish themed restaurant and guess what they removed Sheperds Pie Which is a Irish staple. We went last night for dinner not much...to choose from on the new menu. Went for fish and chips well I got a piece of fish and a small handful of chips no co,e slaw nothing. Pretty slim pickings. Thank good ness they still have excellent service. Don was great. Done think we will be rushing back. C lovers next time.More

Stopped in for a mid afternoon snack as we had skipped lunch. This is a nice place with a great patio. Our server was very friendly and helpful. We decided to share a couple of apps; "mccraken rolls" and "pachos". Both were served hot but...I'd guess deep fried from frozen. As a result, they had some flavour but were nothing to write home about. If you are looking for a cold beer in a nice friendly environment, this is a good choice, but don't expect gourmet food. Many cheers ...............More

It’s probably average pub food. Service was very friendly and we were happy with our meals. Nothing exceptional but still solid

My wife and I went with a relative and were surprised by the prices. However it was the food and upcharges that surprised us the most. I had lettuce wrap and it was the worst I have ever had and one of the most expensive...at $21.50. My wife and friend had a burger and sandwich. Instead of fries or salad they ordered pachos which are fries with about an ounce of chees and a few green onions sprinkled on them. They were cold and the cheese was very sparingly sprinkled on a few of the fries, however, they were a $4.95 add on. $1.00 would have been the most they were worth if that. Nice inside and friendly waitress but overpriced average or below average food.More

HUGE menu! We had a hard time picking, but when we finally did we were not disappointed. Everything was delicious. All four of us loved our meals and we shared Pachos which made the meal 5 stars!

We were seated quickly and were promptly served by Emily. She was super friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. We tried calamari appetizers and the lettuce wrap and the beef stroganoff. The food arrived quickly and was good. The lettuce wrap was done in romaine...leaves, but it was fine. Good pick for dinnerMore

Went here for a birthday dinner with my wife. Had the prime rib. I am a pretty fussy eater and I must say this was one of the best meals I have had in a long time. Everything was cooked to perfection and very tasteful....The baked potato was incredible!More

My wife and my family have frequented this venue over the last 4 years until recently. My elderly parents mistakenly picked an outdoor table in the sun. When we were seated my father became dizzy. When I had asked the manager to accommodate us wanting...to move indoors, where it was cooler and out of the sun, he repeatedly said that it was 'protocol, that once seated you can not move to a different table' I had mentioned that my parents are way too hot and were in their eighties and that they need to get out of the sun. My father had skin cancer so we had no choice but to rush the food and pay very quickly as the sun was directly on his head. The food is terrible and the food is over priced. The only positive to draw on the experience is that the bar person poured draft Guinness perfectly. My advice to you, there are better options available close-by that provide better service and food! We will never go here again.More

I am now convinced the only tasty thing to purchase are the patches. Can’t do it wrong. I ordered a chicken meal at $27, what I received was a little chunk of dried up chicken breast with some cream cheese spread on and a handful...of woody old asparagus. Oh and 2 little pieces of red peppers (I had asked for no rice and extra veg) Lol. Wth happened? I asked the waitress would you pay for this? She quietly said no. The manager came over. Asked what the problem was, and all he says is “ it is usually served over a bed of rice”. No offer to replace or ask how it could be improved. Rude. Anyway. Life’s lessons. Just stick to deep fry you can’t go wrong.More
