The second location for O’Toole’s Restaurant & Pub - the restaurant at 4800 Forest Hill Ave. in South Richmond - is back on.
Owner John O'Toole announced the second location for the restaurant in 2017, just after the flagship spot celebrated its 50th anniversary. At the time, they hadn't nailed down a location. Last year, the restaurant announced it has secured a space in the Charter Colony Shopping Center at 13911 Midlothian Turnpike, though the restaurant was later put on hold. But now O'Toole's two is sailing forward.
"We will be done building on July 15," he said. "We would like to open before Aug. 1."
The second location will have the same menu and vibe as the original, right down to the legendary St. Patrick's Day festivities.
This is the second time the Irish restaurant has branched into Chesterfield County. O'Toole's Too was open at 10016 Robious Road in the Robious Hall Shopping Center from 1990 to 1993.
O'Toole's was named one of the "The 25 most popular Irish pubs in America, according to Foursquare" in Business Insider in 2017.
O’Toole’s Charter Colony is now hiring. Interested parties can apply at the Forest Hill location.
