It is truly difficult to cater to all tastes in a borough with a burgeoning food scene and harder still to deliver high quality and professional service at the same time.
But it’s no problem for O’Neill’s of Maspeth. It is as if it was met with this challenge and simply said, “Bring it!”
O’Neill’s has five separate rooms, including three party rooms, a grill room and a main dining room. It offers outdoor seating and has a full bar, which complements the more than 50 televisions throughout the restaurant. This makes it a great spot to watch all types of sporting events with that sports bar vibe. But if you aren’t a sports fan and want a peaceful sit-down meal, it has a room for you. The main dining room is free of televisions and has a fireplace to give you that upscale restaurant scenery but with reasonable prices.
If this isn’t enough to pull you in the food surely will. From its top-end steak cuts to its raw bar, each piece of food you eat is well worth its affordable price. Oh yeah, and don’t forget its brick oven pizza, cooked by the talented Joe Grassadonio, who has worked as a pizza chef for more than 40 years. There is a wide variety of pies, and each one is cooked to perfection with a crisp crust that will have you going back for more.
To accommodate even more people, O’Neill’s also has a large back room that can be used for parties and special events, including wedding receptions.
Specials abound. Stop by for wing night on Mondays or Taco Tuesdays.
And O’Neill’s does catering if you want to have your party at home.
O’Neill’s was destroyed two years ago from a fire in the kitchen, but like anything with a New York attitude, the owners and staff overcame the situation and the restaurant is now better than ever.
Co-owners George O’Neill and Danny Pile are committed to keeping the restaurant up to speed with the evolving food scene in Queens.
