O’Learys – Not your average sports bar

O’Learys hails from Boston, MA, U.S.A and is a sports restaurant loaded with sports memorabilia all over the walls as well as loads of screens to catch the latest games. The venue itself gives off that Boston vibe, the type you see on a lot of American sitcoms. From the green seats and the polished brass finishings along with the green and white checkered table clothes, it could of easily been a film set for an episode of Cheers.img_4035img_4034Speaking of games, this place is not just for the adults. It caters for all ages with the addition of a foosball table, air hockey table, retro arcade games, pinball and an addictive basketball hoop where you can challenge your friend at who’s the better hoop sinker.img_4066You can purchase tokens from the bar and play while you wait for your food arrive. Sticking to it’s theme it serves typically American bar grub, including chicken wings and burgers through to pastas and salads. They have an impressive drink menu which unfortunately for some is only non-alcoholic. Something they aren’t looking to change in the future.

Our waitress for the day was cheerful and pro active anticipating our needs. Due to the soft launch they didn’t have one of the ingredients to make the drink we were after so we settle with a vanilla iced latte. Served tall with plenty of ice cream on top it was that perfect combination of coffee and milk. Not too sweet at all.img_4045My friend and I shared their chicken quesadilla as well as the Buffalo Chicken Wings for starters along with a side of Potato Gratin. The filling of the quesadillas weren’t bad but they use bottled guacamole on the side. Fresh guacamole would of been much better. The chicken wings weren’t hot at all for buffalo wings, with more of a sweeter taste similar to that of sweet chilli. They make their own buffalo sauce in house. Next time I’d opt for the parmesan garlic flavour.

Starters done and off we were again this time shooting hoops. We were having so much fun we didn’t realise that our mains had started to arrive. Feeling parched we quickly order some iced berry drinks to cool us down.img_4061This time we shared the Boston Burger and the rib eye steak. The steak is chargrilled and served with a cob of corn and half a tomato which had also been grilled and garnished with some lemon. The Boston burger comes served in a basket with fries and even though it looked quite small had quite a thick bun and a patty with melted cheese, two types of sauce, as well as tomatoes and onion. The bread was a little dry but the patty was juicy. The two sauce combination didn’t seem to match and we would of preferred your regular tomato and mustard combo. The fries were cooked to perfection and salted just right. The steak comes served with your choice of sauce and the mushroom sauce was thick and creamy. A nice addition.img_4056img_4052I spent too long photographing the Mexican donut that when I eventually open it the ice cream inside runs out like a milky river. The combination of the thick crusted donut with the cold runny insides is delicious and I wish I tucked into it earlier.img_4069My friend goes for the banana split which is heaped with two different flavours of ice cream and lashings of cream and chocolate sauce. It’s enjoyable and demolished within a few minutes.img_4073Too full to even move at this stage we sit back and let the food digest a little before gathering for a group photo. So much fun was had that we leave on a high of sugar and adrenalin. A great place for all ages.
