“Good Location and Good Food”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

Popular bar and restaurant that serves lunch and dinner. Good Irish cuisine
and a very busy bar. It is considered "The" place to be on St. Pat's Day.

“Dinner and a Show”
Reviewed 23 December 2013

Went to Katie's O'Brynes after a show at Proctor's. Great service, happy hour specials and homemade corn beef sandwiches. It was two days before Christmas and the pub's decorations were really pretty. Will definitely head back again.

“Great Irish Pub”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

Before seeing a show at Proctors, we had dinner at Katie O'Byrnes. This was my first time at the Pub and I was very impressed with the atmosphere and the Irish cuisine. There were nine of us and everyone had something different and everyone enjoyed their food choice. Even the appetizers were delicious. The Pub was extremely crowded but that didn't bother our waitress; she was fantastic!!!! I would definitely eat there again the next time we see a show at Proctors.

“Great place to go for real Irish cuisine! Appearance looked fantastic and the flavor hit the spot.”
Reviewed 20 November 2013

Employees were very friendly, our waitress was Kelly and she did a great job. We ordered the Irish rueben made with freshly cooked corned beef cooked daily in house as well bangers and mash and pasta with vodka. I've never been more impressed by "pub food" than I was with Katie o'Byrne's tasty entrees!

“So-So”
Reviewed 1 November 2013

We have been to Katie O'Byrnes a couple of times in the recent past and I will admit it is not one of my favorite places. While the pub food is good and what you would expect from an Irish Pub the service is where it has been lacking when we have been there.
We have been there at times when it has not been very busy and yet the waitresses that we have had were not the most attentive in providing additional water, asking if everything was alright or even asking if we wanted dessert. Once the food was delivered we did not see them again until the check arrived.
Many of my friends like it here and again we had no complaints about the food but think it would be beneficial if the management would coach the servers more in customer service.
