A Review of Owen’s Pub In North Wildwood

We’ve finally made it to my first real review of a bar!

Thursday evening I stopped in Owen’s Pub in North Wildwood for just a quick drink and some apps.  Certainly was the best way to end my school week I assure you!  I’ve been to Owen’s a few times and I usually get the same thing (some type of draft beer and something I probably should not be eating) however for the sake of reviewing purposes I thought I would mix it up for you.

Let’s start with the overall appearance and atmosphere of Owen’s.  I think the theme is clear with the Irish flag proudly displayed outside and the use of term “pub” instead of “bar.”  I also know that they do have a native Irishman working the bar.  You certainly get the feel for an Irish bar here at Owen’s.  They also cater to the community and are proud of it.  The back wall has an homage to North Wildwood and there are various North Wildwood photographs all over the place.  I truly respect the tribute that this establishment makes to the locals.  This cannot be a local’s Irish type of bar without having a place for the locals to go for their sports entertainment.  21 flat screens lined the walls of Owen’s.  It was no surprise that on a Thursday evening then that there were a limited number of bar stools and tables left.

Let’s move past the look and get down the drinks, food and service.  There is literally one word to describe all three: excellent.  Our server, Jenny, was incredibly attentive (without being the hovering type,  I really hate when servers do that) and knowledgeable.  She could rattle off prices, wine lists, anything you asked about Owen’s Jenny knew the answer.

  • The friend I went with is a vegetarian and forgot to order no meat on the Nachos we had ordered, she had no problem promptly fixing this error on our part.
  • I ordered a Cosmo, that was fantastic.  Not only did she bring me a Cosmo but she brought a glass that had the surplus of my drink that the bartender had made.
  • The same went for the wine my friend, Jeff, got.  She brought the wine and a side so he could refill his glass at his leisure.
  • The food was incredibly large and delicious.  More than enough to bring home for a great price.

My Cosmo with a little something extra!
