We live in a very rural part of Upstate New York, and there’s really no decent restaurants in our immediate area. On the weekends, we drive to the city (45 minute drive) to do our weekly grocery shopping and grab a dinner. On our way, we pass by this Eddie O’Brien’s restaurant in Farmington, NY. I remember many years ago when this place was a popular bar. Then it was empty for a while, and a few years ago, Eddie O’Brien’s moved in here. But, we’ve never been here to eat!
I’m a member of the Restaurant.com Review Crew, and I use my Restaurant.com app all the time to find new places to dine at, and also save some money on our meal. Just this past week, I noticed that Eddie O’Brien’s has been added to their list! Since we drive by there at least twice a week, we decided to try their dinner there on Saturday.
We knew it was a sports bar & grill. From the outside, we always assumed it was very dark inside. But when we got inside, we were very surprised at how nice and spacious, and bright it was inside. I love their booths. Their booths are very roomy, and I really like how they have tall seats, so you have privacy from the other booths.
When you walk in, they have a board with specials on it, and one of them was the chicken, bacon and ranch quesadilla. That sparked Chris’s interest immediately.
After waiting a few minutes, we were seated, and a server quickly came over to grab our drink orders.
When we ordered our entrees, Chris ordered the chicken bacon quesadilla. When it arrived, he was very pleasantly surprised first at the size, and then at the taste.
There were actually big chunks of chicken breast in it, and the quesadilla was flaky and crispy, and he said it was absolutely delicious. In his words, it was “way better than Chili’s, no question”. And this from a man who knows his quesadillas.
I ordered the Bourbon Steak. It arrived in a shallow bowl with a bourbon sauce and lots of mushrooms. It was heavenly! I was surprised at all of the sauce it was in, and we joked how it could have been called steak soup, but seriously, it was absolutely delicious. It was cooked perfectly, it was tender, and so flavorful. I will definitely be back for this meal again!
With my meal also came fries and veggies. I’m not a big fan of fries, but Chris is and he ate my fries and said they were delicious as well.
