Visiting from Mansfield England with friends from Mansfield Ohio, we came across this gem for lunch. Lovely friendly staff, spotless toilets, great food and atmosphere. I am a "senior" u felt right at home with all the students who were eating and serving here. I am diabetic, and they were most helpful with my needs. Had a problem parking, but I guess most customers walk here from College
Im an Ou grad from 2008, and went back for a visit. Expected things to have deteriorated because of how long it had been. Went to Luckys by chance and i really didnt expect to be blown away. Matt, the bartender was awesome. Funny, knowledgable and knows how to handle himself and the bar. Will be back just to see him. Thanks for staying weird, Luckys. Youve got a lifelong patron.
Stop into the Jackie Oâs Public House Restaurant & choose from 30 different Jackie O's beers on draft, including a variety of experimental & traditional styles. Pair your pint with our locally sourced pub menu, including multiple daily specials, homemade
Sunday at 12:30 might be rush hour. Seated immediately, but took 45 minutes to get our burgers. Not the server's fault, just an under staffed kitchen. Once the cheese burgers arrived, they were very good as were the fries and green beans. Of course, the beers were excellent. 30 house beers on tap to choose from. Even though some of their best beers are stouts, I did a flight of IPAs. All good with See Foam probably the best.
Tony's was one of my favorite hangouts when I lived in town a decade ago, and it's one that my wife and I still love to visit when we come back. Tony's has a comfortable student to townie ratio that, for some reason, doesn't seem to work most places.Tony's Hot Nuts are legenday. Essentially, it's a shot of hot coffee and Franjelico. The back patio is a comfortable place to escape on a warm evening. Hit the dart boards for some friendly competition (approach is a bit short). I always loved sitting in the front booth during the winter when the snow was falling, and the Christmas lights in town would radiate through the fogged windows.So, If you're looking for some relaxing camaraderie, grab some friends, head to Tony's, find a booth, and grab some Hot Nuts.Cheers.

TERRIBLE - scratch that - BEYOND terrible service. In fact, shouldn't even use the word, because, for our visit, there was NO service! Chain of events:We walked in, waited around, clearly looked 'new' to the place - no acknowledgment of our existence. So, we took a guess that we could seat ourselves. First words out of our server (direct quote) "I'm doing something else, I'll be over in a minute". Not even a 'hello' ?! No introduction?! What the heck is her name?? We didn't even get a smile! Took our rude & clearly 'weeded w only 4 tables server' 15 minutes to come to our table & take our order. We ordered: 3 chicken Philly's 1 Reuben 1 mushroom burgerAll w fries. Took OVER an HOUR to receive our food.Not once did our server (you know what I'm thinking here) stop by & apologize for the wait, explain why there was a wait... Nothing. Absolutely nothing.When she brought our food, only 4 of us were served. Still waiting on mushroom burger....an additional 15 minutes. Every one of us had cold food. Fries look like they would have been very good, had they been warm....Sandwiches were literally big a_ _ buns with extremely small portions. And, our Server never stopped back to see if everything tasted okay or if we needed anything. In fact, she all but disappeared. We thought maybe her shift ended.That is, until she brought the bill.Not surprisingly, after she dropped the bill, she hovered like a freaking vulture and stopped over 4 times! I kid you not. Don't see her for 1 1/2 hrs - get the bill, can't shake her.I asked for the Manager - the young lady who went to get her was very friendly, courteous and clearly had some customer service skills. Painfully obvious, she received her training elsewhere. Took an additional 10 minutes for the manager, Joyce, to make an appearance.When Joyce came out to see us....Well, let's just say I'm pretty sure she is in WAY over her head and has absolutely NO business managing a restaurant. None. Nada. Zilch.We explained our experience and all we got from her was a boat load of excuses, ranging from: "Well, this is Athens" to "We've been busy all day" "Ran out of food", "Our kitchen is far away from our storage area" AND "We're just locally owned".That last one really yanked my chain. I've been a 'local owner'.... Locally owned establishments bust butt and appreciate every single customer & earn every single dollar. Being local is NEVER an excuse for bad ANYthing. The owner should be appalled.Oh! And our server - well Joyce says she is her 'lead server' & has been there 10years. Word to the wise Joyce, that lady may be a tad too comfy in her position. Knowing the menu & how to write an order does not a good server make.I suggested, perhaps they were understaffed if she thought her restaurant was 'busy'.... It wasn't even 1/2 full!!! Joyce told me she was running a 'double staff'.People! Really?! Running a 'double staff' - the restaurant is not 1/2 full - and it takes over an hour to get sandwiches??? There is a problem here. Oh, btw, Manager never offered an apology either. Nothing. No discount, no dessert.....Nothing but lame excuses for a pis_ poor experience. I wasn't looking for anything free - just wanted an acknowledgment of the bad experience & an apology. Maybe even a 'thank you' for bringing matters to her attention. Frankly, Joyce's attitude is what annoyed me to the point that I felt this review needed to be written.I've owned my own, managed and worked in restaurants.... Everything about this place was wrong. Save yourself the headache & eat elsewhere.
We stumbled on this place while doing a self driving beer tour of Athens. What a delightful place! Great building. Bartender was personable and fun. Drinks were excellent including a bloody mary that was to die for! The ciders were all great!! The interior invites you to cone in and stay awhile.

I have to stop here whenever I'm in town. I love when they do a pig roast out back. I also make sure this place is on the list when it's Ohio Beer Week. Great food, great beer, and great bartenders, what's not to love?

It was not busy, there was maybe twenty diners when we stopped in. We were seated quickly but the server took 5+ minutes to take our drink order. The food arrived quickly but....my fries were cold and the ribs were tough. My wife's entree was hot but tasted just so-so.The dining area was clean and the servers were friendly but the experience was poor because of the food.

They did a pretty good job for all the Ohio University Alumni in town. The burgers are pretty good. The beers were cold. Good job. All in all a great experience.

Sol is not the typical Cuban restaurant, with some traditional Cuban dishes along with Cuban inspired fusion cuisine. The owners make frequent visits in the dining room and try to keep popular items along with new dishes. The food is always freshly made, so the pace is a nice leisurely meal. The bar is nicely stocked for good beverage accompaniment.
