“We're glad we ordered seafood”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

We realize it is not the "beach season" when we went, but there were an ample number of cars in the lots, so our local hosts invited us to give it a try. The four of us were seated and promptly and Cindy gave us the usual, glass, drink order, menu's and recited the specials. So far so good. Then she got lost on here socialization with locals at the other end of the bar/dinning room. Our host got her attention and the service improved. What I saw of the steaks did no tempt me. But, my wife and I are both addicted to Razor Clams. The size of the order and the preparation overcame some of my earlier objections. Good, good.The price was a bit steep and the bar even more so. We'd probably come back for a glass of water and the Razor Clams.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 4 June 2014 via mobile

After reading reviews for other restaurants in town, we gave O'HOLLERANS a try. Hostess and servers were pleasant we had steak and shrimp dishes that were superb. Not cheap, but good value.

“Yum!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

We always enjoy O'Holleran's. Love the service, reliably good steaks, and well above average desserts.... the Ghiradelli Chocolate Cheesecake, the Key Lime Pie, and beleive it or not Aunt Jane's Lemon Cake will have you coming back just for the desserts. (On more than one occassion we have stopped in just to satisfy a sweet tooth!) On those nights when I jsut don't feel like cooking... or those nights only a delicious steak will do.... (And at Christmas time, the decorations are fabulous!!!)

“Over priced”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

WE have been disapointed with this restaurant every time we go. There is nothing special about the food and yet it is priced as though it is the cat's meow. The salads that come with the dinners at times are wilted, the meat not tender, and the desserts are down right poor. Our daughter and son-in-law went there for their anniversary dinner and were terribly disapointed for what they got. There are better places to get a good meal in Brookings!!!!

“Cindy & Razor Clams are the Best!”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

It is like two different people designed this restaurant. We really like the bar and the cozy booths and we really like server, Cindy. Sometimes she works the Bar sometimes the Dining Room. If you see her tell her M&M sent you.

We travel the US in an RV and try to find friendly, local bars and restaurants with great food, good beer and personable service wherever we go. We would highly recommend the razor clams (crisply done) and never had a soup that we did not think was outstanding.

The holiday lights in the bar are a great way to enjoy a festive holiday season. This unique in our experience and well worth a visit.

So......... razor clams, soup of the day, choice of potatoes, Cindy as your server, in the bar and be there around the holidays. You will not be disappointed. We did this once a week for 12 weeks and would go back tonight if we were in Brookings. Make sure you reserve a booth. The locals already know all this.
