O'Brian's Tavern Open for Business
The British pub has an upscale feel, a varied menu and plenty of imported beers.
The Dunwoody Resturant Group cut the ribbon today on its latest British-style pub.
The tavern's owner, Huw Thomas, owns and operates the popular Dunwoody Tavern in Dunwoody Village, as well as others in his restaurant group.
The pub is located on 2486 Mt. Vernon Road Suite A and has the dark-wood ambience and upscale feel of a classic pub.
It's got a Tartan topped bar with a variety of imported beers.
The owner says the name of the bar and the Welsh flag incorporated into its logo is a nod to his father and mentor, Brian Thomas, who recently passed.
Thomas says the restaurant is set up for groups of up to 100, corporate-get togethers and family reunions.
The new establishment is drawing some positive reviews on Yelp. Below is a sampling:
"Great local pub. Great service a good menu selection. Everyone at our table of four enjoyed their food selections. Gyro, meatloaf, fish tacos and fish and chips. Noise level so you can talk with your friends is a great plus."
"Stopped by for Labor Day Lunch. Excellent authentic gyro which is very hard to find in Atlanta. Smoked salmon spinach salad was perfectly composed and absolutely delicious. Highly recommend. Good selection of beer on tap.
"Walking distance to a pub is a good thing for this neighborhood. Hopefully it is well supported and it seems like its off to a decent start. Friendly staff. Solid pub menu and bar. Good pub decor. There's some seating outside that's covered and arranged nicely and probably will be pleasant when its not over 90 out. Its open for lunch now and it seems like its attracting a good crowd at dinner. Food service was fairly quick. Their own chips made fresh accompanied my fish tacos for lunch. And I found money walking home from the place so that's obviously a good sign. Will have to visit at night for a pint."
