We enjoy the atmosphere and ambiance at Jackie O's. Good beer - basic bar food, but they do a good job. Pizzas - many types - are featured. Musicians in the evenings throughout the week. It's worth going for the beers that don't ever get...More

Awesome selection of 30 craft beers! Had a wonderful Charcuterie plate as well for a light snack. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Atmosphere was warm and inviting. Absolutely, I will be back.

I wouldn't rave about the food, though it's good. But the beers? You won't find anything better anywhere. I've been to a lot of micro breweries around the country. In my opinion, Jackie O's brews are the best. Hands down.

Stopped here after a day of hiking. Nice family friendly place. Food is better than average. Had a patty melt. Pizzas looked good as well. Star of the place are the beers. Top notch selection with about 20 plus on tap.

Really special place, but tough to categorize: fine beer selection, wonderful menu, terrific service and still reasonable in price. The almost three dozen beers will challenge you but so will the great bar food, e.g. sandwiches, fries, salads, great pizzas, and ice cream or cheesecake...More

Me and my BF (he’s from Athens) and this was the first brewery he took me to. They have three spots in town and my favorite is the taproom. It’s got such a great vibe! Great staff and great beer. My favorites are the Razz...More

Unfortunately the only Motel close would be the Ohio University Inn on Richland Ave. It's about 3/4 of a mile from Jackies but easy walk and easy to get to. Jackies also has another location on Stimson Ave but it also isn't... More
