    First say hi to Chewie at the door then eat a great meal upstairs before going downstairs to take part in bocce, pool, darts, skee ball and of course sample the amazing beer list! Try an Adventinus!

    Ormsby's is a favorite of locals looking for an extensive craft beer list and a unique gastropub menu. There's also a downstairs game room with bocce ball, shuffleboard, billiards and more.

    This place is just amazing. If you want just dinner and/or drinks, there's that too, but the real jem is downstairs where its buzzing with fun games like Bocce, darts, pool & others with great blues.

  • First We Feast

    The absence of signage and a secluded entrance below the district's main walkway suggest this gastropub relishes the secrecy of yesteryear’s speakeasies. Read more

    They don't allow 6-year olds into the restaurant area after 7pm on the week of Christmas to have dinner with his family. We won't be visiting this restaurant or Atkins Park ever again.

    They have Bacce ball in the basement along with a bunch of other games. Be wary: it gets packed on weekends. The crowd is mid-to-late twenties. Great beer list.

    Come on Friday (or Saturday too I believe) for the steak. Very worth it. I didn't really think this place would have a good steak, but I was wrong & I'm glad I was.

    If the answer is plenty of beer, wine, spirits, and food like corn dogs with sriracha mayonnaise and fish and chips, then Ormsby’s in West Midtown is the place to go. [Eater 38 Member]
