This is great place to get together and have some really great beer. They are a brew pub so you can always try something new which I find a pluse. Great in the summer when the students are not around and still mellow when they are. Best Bar in Athens as far I think.

I finally made it back to Jackie O’s yesterday. There have been a lot of changes since my last visit there 4 1/2 years ago, the big one being they have since bought the pub next door so they now have a brewery side and a pub side, with both having different beers on tap. Since I only had an appetizer there I can’t say much about the food, but the other people there who were eating around me seemed to enjoy what they had, so I’ll assume the food is all pretty good like my appetizer was. The service was great, and it’s a cool environment there just to hang out, chill and have some beer. After a couple brews and some samples on the pub side, I went over to the brewery side and talked with Brad for a few minutes (who was nice enough to take a few minutes out of his day to talk about beer with me), and had more samples of different brews, including 6 different versions of their Dark Apparition stout, all of which were excellent. The beer there is just flat out incredible. Everything I tried was great, and I can’t think of any other places that have as many barrel aged beers on tap as Jackie O’s does. I could have spent all day there, and I might have to make a trip back down there soon just to do that. If you’re in the area (or even if you’re not), it’s definitely worth it to make the trip. I’ll have to come back to Jackie O’s more often, that’s for sure!

I went here on the fifth anniversary celebration around lunch time and was shocked to find that it was not all that busy. I walked right in and picked a seat at the bar right in front of the beer taps. Within a short amount of time I had a lengthy tap menu placed in front of me and a snifter of delicious beer in my hand. The bartender was very knowledgeable about their beer and friendly to boot. The pizza I ordered came out pretty fast and was delicious. They have the normal pub foods but all of them seem to have a gourmet touch to them. Parking would be difficult if you didn’t know your way around town, but Athens is not an intimidating town so that should not be a big deal. If a person ever finds themselves in Athens and passes this place up, they are crazy.

For a place in Athens (a college town) you can’t ask for a better atmosphere to sit and enjoy a few drink, good food, and conversation with friends. They have darts, a table shuffle-board, and patio. If you’re just in town to visit or what have you then this place is a must. Also, they are their own brewery. So, many of the beers they have on tap are their own and almost every one is a good choice.

Went to the Barrel Aged Beer Fest with a few friends, and had a great time! The service was good. The food was decent, but not phenomenal. Got to meet Brad, the brewer, and try a lot of their beers, which are all very good. The bathroom (as others have mentioned) is not in the greatest shape, but it’s a bar, so I don’t expect much more than a hole. They have two sides, the brewery and the pub side, which are separated by a wall. You have to walk outside to get from one side to the other (either by the sidewalk out front or the patio in the back).

For the good: the beer is outstanding. A very good selection of house beers and of the several I have tried ...very good stuff and a good experimental side. The place has expanded to include the place next door so there is more room than there used to be however the seating is limited on the new side.
The food was so-so. The Athens burger was tasty and juicy but the fries were under-cooked, limp, and greasy. I have yet to find a place down here that can cook good fries yet.
Also I dont know if this is a regional problem but the odor of sewage is very noticeable in the bathroom, which does seep out to the bar area. I mention this as a regional problem since this is not the only place that has this problem.
Still this is a very good place to go for some quality and exciting beers.

I used to go here when there was just one bar (used to be O’hooleys). They have two sides now (apparently they bought Skippers). I like the atmosphere and the home brew. Not a big selection of bottles, but there is likely one of there brews that you will enjoy. If you are in the area I highly recommend you stop by. Some of there beers are really highly rated these days.

Finaly got down here for their anniversary party. Definitely a TINY little bar, with the bare mininmum of seating. DEFINITELY a plus that they opened up the building next store. GREAT potential here. We were here for their barrel aged tasting. The cons-It was very chaotic and dis organized. No taps were labeled at first and several times we got the wrong beer. It was hard to be mad though because every was so very nice. Brad was very personable and seemed very interested in what we had to say about his beers. Bartenders were all very friendly. Cheese plate was freakin awesome. Beers were all good at the mininimum and outstanding for a few. Bottle sale was a bit of a let down. I would go back if I were in the area. Athens is a great little town.
