Located inside the Holiday Inn Select of Auburn Hills, the first O’Malley’s in Michigan opened recently. It’s an Irish-themed tavern which serves Irish food as well as American cuisine. The menu features appetizers, great sandwiches and salads. Food and beverage director Mike Grouzard recommends their 22-ounce T-bone steak, stuffed fried mushrooms, Black Angus steak and burgers, and their fresh fish and chips. Also available are smoked mackerel and rack of lamb. With its long hours, O’Malley’s serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and late dinner. A mix of traditional Irish folk and contemporary music plays daily. Weekend entertainment features live performances by local musicians. There are big screen TVs for sports fans, and shuttles to major events; also darts, pool and video games.
