Had a great time here over Dad's Weekend at Ohio University with my son. I'd had Jackie O's beer before, but not on tap. The nitro tap made a HUGE difference on the stouts. It was creamy and delicious! Will definitely be coming back

Jackie O's is one of Athens' favorite success stories: a locally owned brewery & brew pub that uses local ingredients and bangs out some of the tastiest food & drink in the state! The fish tacos are an amazing addition to an already impressive menu. FYI the best burgers in town are found here & the pizza is worth every... More

My husband and I dropped by on a Saturday afternoon to get some lunch and we were not disappointed. He ordered the burger special and I had the chili dog special. Both entrees came out hot and were a large portion size. Even though the restaurant was packed, we still got good service and the price was very reasonable. The... More

When a hair comes in your daughters salad... It is expected that THAT part of the meal will NOT be charged for, and it wasn't, so that's fine... And yes, the waitress was apologetic, but the amount of time it took to replace a simple salad was way too long. We were not there while it was overly crowded (Sunday... More

We visited Jackie O's after touring Ohio University with my high school junior and so were hungry and thirsty and based on seeing good recommendations here on TA. Did not disappoint in terms of quenching our thirsts as great selection of beers to choose from for all tastes and styles and so downed a couple. Menu is more bar like... More

Stopped in for some craft brew and could have stayed all night! We missed the food truck but had a great time socializing! A true "institution" in Athens!

Don't miss their great crafted beers and good food. I had a cheeseburger and my wife the Reuben....both were excellent! I had the Ricky blonde ale....very good and came home with a case of just bottled Bourbon barrel Black Maple. Good atmosphere and great friendly service!

I've been here several times and they never disappoint. The beers are excellent. The service is friendly, and the food is very good. Be sure to try the cheese curds.

I was lucky enough to enjoy a couple of pints and a pizza with some friends after a meeting on-campus.... and I loved Jackie O's. A proud bobcat alum, this was my first trip back to Campus since Jackie Os opened, and I heard a lot of hype. All was true - a great place, a great vibe, and great... More
