O'Malley's is that secret dive that provides. They got quick bartenders, over craft 20 beers on tap, good pub grub and live music. What more could you ask for in a dive?
Tucked away off Middlefield Rd. and Rengstorff near 101 is a tiny little joint called O'Malley's, the old Francesca's in Mountain View, CA. O'Malley's has a friendly staff of quality bartenders pouring rotating local craft beers from San Francisco to Palo Alto. Their craft beers are a little pricey but they also have the usual domestic choices too. My Lauganitas IPA was $6.50. I enjoyed a $3 PBR my next round. (They do have a full bar, but your best bet is to order beer when it gets really crowded.) Happy Hour is 3pm to 6pm with some rotating favorites.
The grinds were good too. I enjoyed their potato skins with cheese, sour cream and bacon bits, including ranch dipping sauce. Deeee-licous. Only $6.50 for 6 large halves! Homemade potato chips and sweet potato tots are some of the other specialties on the menu, also only $6.50. They even have three kinds of wings! The burger and fries were a big hit too, only $10. This is a good liquid lunch and munchie spot if you can steer clear of the Google geeks.
The place is usually packed Thursday through Saturday, with live music on Friday and Saturday nights. Local alternative bands are the norm, metal, punk rock, ska, phunk, soul, rock n' roll. They also have DJ's, Karaoke and even paint night! The best way to get info on the bands, DJ's and special events is through their facebook page.
They have two pool tables, beer pong (sometimes), a shuffleboard table, a jukebox and over 10 big screen TV's. This place screams Authentic Bay Area Sports Fans! The place was packed for the 2016 Warriors and Sharks playoffs. They even host the Pay Per View fights.
O'Malley's accepts all major credit cards with state of the art cash registers. They have their own parking lot, with plenty of parking, they allow dogs and is wheelchair accessible. They also have a outdoor patio where you can smoke. They only have one toilet for the men and one for the women, but they are clean.
Have a liquid lunch at O'Malley's, with a side of pub grub, the perfect mid-day release or check out some really talented local bands.
