Here in Buffalo, we’re lucky that we’ve got an excessive amount of incredible restaurants, bars, and day trip destinations to choose from. But it can be really easy to fall back on the places you frequent the most instead of trying anywhere new. 

That being said, summer is officially here, which means it’s the perfect time to branch out from your typical routine. And if you’re looking for a new dinner or date night out spot this season, we highly recommend O’Brien’s West End Inn. 

Located in the heart of Hamburg, O’Brien’s is tucked inside a historic building with a long, storied past. But don’t let that fool you— O’Brien’s West End Inn is one of the best new places to get a drink, have dinner, listen to live music, and more in the Southtowns. 

Read on for the top 6 reasons you need to check them out before the end of the summer:


1. An Incredible Menu

If you’re looking to shake up your dinner date night plans or are just itching to try a new restaurant this summer, O’Brien’s is the perfect place for you. Their newly expanded menu now includes everything from homemade soups, salads and appetizers to house-smoked brisket, burgers, pasta & a year-round Friday night fish fry.  

Pro tip: They’ve also got some of the best homemade desserts in Western New York, so be sure to save some room!”

2. Full-Service Bar

Almost as important as the food is the beer you decide to pair it with. O’Brien’s offers a full-service bar with 16 rotating beers on draft, including a variety of national and locally-made brews. From Big Ditch Hayburner and Southern Tier’s 8 Days a Week to EBC Blueberry and Genny Kolsch, there’s something for everyone to enjoy at the bar.

3. Food Truck & Catering

Did you know: O’Brien’s West End Inn is now home to O’Brien’s Kitchen & Smokehouse?! What started as a local food truck now offers a variety of fresh and smoked meats & cheeses that you can purchase at the West End, plus catering options for all occasions!

4. Private Banquet Rooms

As a historic building in Hamburg, the events venue at the Inn has hosted countless events in its 120+ year history, and the crew at O’Brien’s is helping to carry on that tradition. 

With two private rooms that can be opened up into one large room, plus a large bar area, O’Brien’s West End Inn is the perfect place to celebrate any of life’s events. From showers and birthday parties to corporate luncheons, birthday parties, and more, this space is available 7 days a week to host your private event.

O’Brien’s West End Inn proudly hosts seven fully-renovated Airbnb rooms for guests to stay in while exploring all that the Village of Hamburg has to offer. These rooms are original to the 1886 building and have been restored to include the modern comforts of today while still honoring the building’s rich history and past. It’s truly a one-of-a-kind experience!
