Kids love mac & cheese. Daughter (14)said it was."BEST MAC & CHEESE EVER! Ordered more to take back to hotel for desert for my other daughters. This is the restaurant of choice when we come up for the day or the weekend. Got to get them some Mac & Cheese. Try it you will see!

I have been coming to O'Malley's for about 15 years since I was a student at WCU and after when I was back in town and even worked as a bouncer there for a while. I haven't been there in several years so I told my wife I wanted to go have some wings before we headed back home. The... More

Its a sports watchers paradise. They serve pictures of some craft beers and domestic beers, have lots of TV's that are view-able from many areas, and even have a few bands on weekends. Food isn't great...but service is quick and room is mostly plentiful. Family friendly in daytime.

We had a small group meal here after a family function. The staff was very accommodating with our schedule and party count changes. Great pub and grub. Good variety of beers on tap. Nice variety of bar food. The wings and sauces were great! Notice, the boneless wings are just chicken strips, but still good. We had several appetizers that... More

Every time I visit O'Malley's I receive FRESH food and great service! It is nice to know that after moving my daughter in/out of her WCU dorm, there is a great restaurant waiting!

Stopped by for lunch the other day with my son. The menu is huge. My Reuben sandwich was delicious! My son's burger looked great. He really enjoyed it. We also had a chicken quesadilla for an appetizer. It was wonderful as well. Large selection of local craft beers too.

On our way to concert/gambling and stopped here for dinner. 2 guys and 2 gals.. both guys had been here previously and thought it was a great spot. I don't know if this was just one off their "off" nights (it's Friday) but us 2 girls and guys agree we won't be returning. Took over an hour for wings and... More

Love the wings and cold beer, as good as they come. However, service SUCKS, especially the bar. 7/17/16 4:20pm Bartender don't know how to look anywhere but down and straight ahead, she is clueless. Waited almost 20 mins after she acknowledged me, finally walked up to her nose to nose to pay for my order. Left out all the blue... More

We got a quesadilla and the chicken inside had been doused with sugar. It was disgusting. My husband ordered the buffalo chicken sandwich and the server never asked which side he wanted, instead she picked for him and he got fries. The chicken was rubber textured, waffer thin, and he might have done better to order a wad of bread... More
