We went there last night with a party of six. Everyone got something different and we all were satisfied with our choices. I think it's a nice addition to The Villages restaurants, even it's not quite within The Villages.

The Irish stew might be cold too. All my friends that ordered it, had to send it back. The kitchen is pretty slow too.

I could be tempted to make the trek from North of 466 all the way down South - even though I have to get visas on my passport; have the proper shots, and go through passport control.
Split a pitcher of Yuengling Yuengling with a neighbor and it was on $6. Same for domestics, but they went the extra mile and including Y/Y. We
thoroughly enjoyed our dinner - meat loaf, chicken pot pie, reuben, and a burger! Boy was I full!!!

Four us went Monday night for dinner. Our first time there. It was OK but would go elsewhere if I had a choice. My stew was cold and I did not like the look of a shamrock piped in sour cream on my stew (sent back to be nuked). That said, it did taste good. One person's fired haddock was so breaded and fried really dark and hard that she took the breading off and the fries looked overcooked. The potpie looked good and my friend said it was good. Hubby said the meatloaf was passable but would not order again. Can't comment on the beer as we had other drinks. Didn't notice if the kitchen was slow but it was pretty crowded at 6:30. We were seated with a reasonable wait and the food came out in a reasonable time. The print on the menu is very small. I wear glasses and it was hard for all of us at the table to read clearly. I think lighting has a lot to do with it as the place where we sat was a bit dark. The staff was very friendly and attentive. I hope the business does well and stays around and I am glad so many others like and return to the business. Just our first impressions.

Anyone know who the owners are?
Hopefully not an ex cop from the East Coast.
Some of the comments sound similar to a now closed Irish Pub in Orlando.

With that said, a good stablizing period is the first 30 days. If it is going to be good, it will be so after roughly that period of time. Not my "wisdom" but from someone who owned three restaurants, all total successes.
Where in Highland, NY? We too live in Highland and have a home in Sanibel.

I guess that means that someone didn't like an owner of a place in Orlando. Had a problem at my table, so I had a chance to meet the owner of O'Shea's the other night. Let me tell you, what a great guy. Really cares about the employees and the job they are doing. His name is Wayne and is from the Chicago area. Knows they are not perfect but trying to get better each day.

Love to see something other than a chain or "the usuals" making it here. Have been there, loved it, and will return.

Will have to put O'Shea's on my "must try list" when I get back to TV later on this month.

Yes, you definitely have to try it. Hopefully the word will spread & we'll have another awesome place to go to for a long time !!
