“Bar/Pub Setting”
Reviewed 1 November 2013

The pub style food here is good and the service is also ok. O'Leary's is a place that you can go with your friends and have a fun night out. If you are looking for a quiet place to go for dinner, I would not suggest it as the tables are very close together and it gets pretty loud.

Great little Irish place in Scotia, NY. Friendly service and really good food.Good draft beer choices. Great place to get a bite to eat before going down the block to the movies at Scotia Cinema, What more could you want?

“Support our locally owned businesses.”
Reviewed 9 March 2013

After an evening out at the Scotia Cinema, a refreshing change from the multiscreen Cineplex's in the malls, it's a short walk down Mohawk Avenue to O'Leary's in the now famous village of Scotia where a recent Hollywood movie was shot, "A Place in the Pines"
It's okay even for the healthy eater to occasionally treat ones self to some pub food. My favorite is the Smasher: Hot roast beef with melted Swiss cheese topped with a hash brown potato and coleslaw on a fresh roll. It is served with regular fries, sweet potato fries or onion rings. The waitress did not ask my choice and I forgot to tell her I wanted onion rings. I accepted the fries which were excellent nonetheless. The place is small ,cozy and comfortable and a perfect cap to a night out to the movies. businesses

“Awesome pub with family-friendly restaurant section”
Reviewed 2 February 2013

This place is just wonderful. In the summer, they have some outdoor seating which overlooks Mohawk Avenue and is great for sitting out on a nice summer night. You can find seating in the diner area if you want to keep to yourself, or sit in the bar or outdoors if you wish to be social and strike up conversations with strangers or just laugh loudly with friends. The food is great, and has a decent selection for a pub, and the bar service is outstanding. You can eat at the bar (they have special bar plates that attach to the bar) or in the seating area. We have been there with a group of friends to have a good time, and we've also taken our children there and the staff was kind and accommodating (we sat in the restaurant section). Everyone who goes here loves this place and keeps coming back! It's a genuine hometown pub that's worth a visit!

“Nice Place to Visit Before the Movies”
Reviewed 7 January 2013

We enjoyed our visit here. The food is very much pub food - which is not really my favorite due to deep fried preparation, but if you like this, I am sure it would be an excellent choice for you. The atmosphere is great, we had good service and the prices are good also.
