About Us

O’Niell’s is a daytime, dinnertime, anytime patio restaurant, something the Irish used to call a public house. At O’Niell’s, real folks and their families get together to “make it Irish” with a simple formula: Good Food, Honest Drink.

Good food translates to top quality versions of the lunches, dinners, and appetizers that you know and love. We have dishes that were made to pair with our extensive beer and whiskey selections, or just plain taste good on their own. We also have menu items for our vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free guests. 

Honest drink is the perfect pint and the perfect pour, all delivered with exceptional service. It’s old country quality in a sophisticated but friendly atmosphere. We also offer honestly good deals, celebrating happy hour specials twice a day, every day.

Our founder, Rob O’Niell, sees his namesake as more than just a restaurant: it’s a community, drawing neighborhood folks, businessmen, nonprofits, musicians, artists, and all other kinds of interesting characters together to share their passions and have a great time, all while sharing a delicious meal. Rob O’Niell built O’Niell’s from scratch, constructing the bar top and chairs with his own hands, defining the attitude as “serious fun.”

Good food, honest drink, and great times… that’s how it feels at O’Niell’s. Our patio restaurant has two Albuquerque, NM locations, both in Heights and Nob Hill, and it was voted Best Dining Patio in town by Albuquerque The Magazine readers. Stop by either location for a tasty favorite, to try something new, or to enjoy one of our happy hour specials. With a cover over the patio during the winter months, you’ll be able to enjoy the outdoor atmosphere all year round!
