About Us

The facts and circumstances that led to the origination of O’Brion’s Pub and Grille is a little hazy at best. It is an enigma wrapped in a riddle, even the owners don’t know exactly how it happened. But, this we do know to be true. A group of friends with a thirst for life, friendship, great food, and good times embarked on a journey to create and develop this unique atmosphere. So an accountant, a gas station owner, an insurance agent, a real estate agent, and an actual bartender began their mission. Why on earth would that group of friends open a pub? Well, the accountant waited tables for two summers, the gas station owner was a bouncer for a few months, the insurance agent was a bar back one summer, the real estate agent tended bar for a few years, and oddly the bartender sold medical supplies. Therefore the only thing for us to do was open a pub! But what developed was a place of great food, good times, and new friends. It truly became a place where everyone knows your name and you leave with more friends than you came with. We sincerely believe there is an art to the way a customer should be treated and the way our place should feel. Believe us when we say our number one goal is to achieve that level of service. From this odd group of owners, we salute you and yours and ask you to enjoy our brand of food, friendship, and fun! We will do our best to make sure you are not disappointed!! Cheers, Chad, Heath, Jack, and Richard

HELP SUPPORT SOPHIA!! As you may know, Sophia, a server at James Island, just returned from her beloved trip to Africa with “Project Okurase” where she helped people in rural communities in Ghana. Unfortunately, we found the one thing that could slow her down, a mosquito carrying Malaria.

And it left it’s mark, on her health and as a hefty hospital stay. SO, this is were you all come in!! As Sophia focus’s on getting better, we’d like to get a fund started for her to help relieve some of the financial burden an ER hospital stay can rack up. ANY donation is highly appreciated and will not go without deep gratitude. If you know someone who might not be the most tech savy, we will also have a collection going on at the Obrion’s on James Island, 520 Folly Rd, where Sophia works. On the behalf of everyone who cares about Sophia, THANK YOU! -Megan and Obrions!-
