Driving along the river to see Amelia Earhart's birthplace, I see a sign that says this way to Weston. I remember there was a brewery there so I stop and get a flight. It is too early yet to do a tour, but the beers were satisfactory to good. The history of the place was neat as well as the city, so if you find yourself in the area, it is worth a stop. A flight was only $6.

Living just across the Missourri River I have had the opportunity to visit Weston several times and always stop in for a beer or some food as long as they are open. The atmosphere varies as there three very different "bar areas" that you can eat/drink in. The restaurant upstairs has a rustic feel to it with wood floors and a a little bit of a dark atmosphere in the evening. Its bright in a "colonial" kind of way during the day with natural lighting from outside. There are also two "underground" bar areas. The first you come to is down a long tunnel and opens up to a small and dark area. There has been/is smoking in there when I visited so its not really my speed. The deepest underground area is very cool. By far its the most impressive of the three areas and is worth the visit to Weston to see it. Cool moist stone atmosphere is very unique and not many places have the ability for such an area to be a bar. The beers are different in each of the bar areas, or so I have been told and it seems that is true from my experiences. I have had some good food and some average food. There are some good beers and some average beers. My most recent visit really pushed me into a new appreciation for this place. I would actually go by myself or with my wife, whereas before it was just a "tourist attraction" for out of town friends.

We enjoy visiting this place for eating and drinking. The food selection is good. We like how there is pub food in addition to other offerings. My wife says the crab cakes are some of the best in the area. I am a fan of the bangers and mash. We are familiar with the Weston beers because we live nearby, but having them fresh is the best. We like to eat outside when the weather allows because the inside upstairs dining area is very cramped. It is a difficult trek to the bathroom between the tables and chairs when the dining room is full. Weston is a great town, and I recommend trying this restaurant while visiting.

On my first trip to O'Malley's I only visited the restaurant upstairs. This is easy to do because if you are not familiar with the place there is no way to know that the bar is underground. However, I returned with some friends and we visited the bar area. A gentleman was playing the acoustic guitar and singing Irish drinking songs to a crowd of about 50 people. The beer selection is standard for an Irish pub and I felt the prices were average. The overall atmosphere made the experience drinking a pint with friends 50 or so feet below ground was a unique experience. Also, the acoustics were great and though it is a little difficult to get around the staff did a good job of keeping up with demand.

Was working in St. Joseph and had a free evening so went and checked this place out one saturday night. Weston seems to be a neat little town, but one where they are making sure the place always looks quaint and rustic. As a result it has narrow streets and it's hard to find. When I finally I did, I was very happy and excited to see a nice and ample parking lot.
I then walked and was planning on going to on the 5 o'clock tour, even thought the time was only 5:03pm I was told the tour had already left and there was no way I could join it was already too late.
Dinner was very good, had the Bangers and Mash with the Rasher spread both were very tasty and enjoyable, as well as very reasonably priced. The beer was pretty good, it consisted of 5 brews, a stout which was very good, and a British Pale Ale which was also very refreshing. There seasonal fall beer was a nice beer nothing outstanding but very tasty. They had 2 lighter beer, a cream ale that was okay and a light ale that was also okay.
The only really bad part about the whole experience was the service. I was with a group of 3, and we were seated right away which is nice. But after that we had to wait 10 minutes before a waitress even stopped to give us water and then say she would be back in a minute to take our order. Meanwhile other groups that came in after ours were seated and had drinks in front of them. After another 7min a different watiress came up and asked if we had been helped, and took our order. It took awhile for the drinks and food to arrive but when it did it was very good.
Would probably go back again but the lousy service makes me hesistate before deciding. Overall can recommend it but have to caution all that it's not a must visit.
