Brookfield gets a new Irish pub
Brookfield has a new Irish pub.
Given the location, Wauwatosa and Elm Grove probably can stake a claim, too.
O'Sullivan's Public House, located at 12525 W. North Ave., has taken over the space previously occupied by Ritter's Inn. Ritter's, which was notorious for German food and its Friday fish fry, operated in the space for 17 years before closing in June.
O'Sullivan's, located across North Avenue from Sendik's and Kohl's Dept. Store, adds another Irish / sports option to an area that already boasts Mo's Irish Pub, 10842 W. Bluemound Rd., and O'Donoghue's Irish Pub, 13225 W. Watertown Plank Rd.
A hand-made sign on the door at O'Sullivan's said the bar opens at 5 p.m. Sunday, but a permanent sign said that the establishment would open daily at 11 a.m.

Ah yes, thank you IBM! I've been wondering about that for years!
before it was Ritter's, it was Parente's Italian restaurant. the fireplace at O'Sullivan's is built on the original fountain that Parente's built in 1959.
seems like this will be a a nice, more mature option to Mo's and Brocach. Just on a lark, does anyone remember what used to be at this location before Ritter's (I would say up until early 80's)?
Tried their pork loin on Saturday. Pretty good. The bartender said they sold all 250 fish dinners they had on Friday. They were not expecting their first Friday to be so busy. Lots of nice TVs. This will be a great place for some March Madness.
My wife and I ate here with a friend on Friday evening and we unfortunately missed the fish fry as they had run out of fish. All in all it was a pretty nice place, the food was fairly good and inexpensive. What we liked about it is that it was pretty close to our house and despite having the larger storefront windows it almost had a cozy feeling about the place. We'll definitely be returning!
