Great ambiance and fun conversation. Felt confident during the cut, and the blade shave at the end to clean up the neck and sideburns was great. Massage I don't really care about, but it wasn't bad at all.. I'm just not a big massage guy.

Man, this is the second barbershop I've been to as an adult... Usually got went for a quick and cheap sports clips. But this is cheaper, and HELLA better. I'm a barber man for life now.

Sometimes it is hard to trim one's own facial hair and get it even. But 9 times out of 10, trying to have someone else do it at a shop turns out even worse. Not so here though. I have finally found someone that can trim facial hair evenly and correctly. Jessica is a champ at trimming faces and gives a great haircut too. My hair and face turn out great every time I see her. She keeps me looking sharp. Guys, go see Jessica for all your hair needs! Not only is she good at what she does, she is fun as well!

I've been going to O'Grady's for over 8 years, and while a few of the faces have changed over the years, the quality of the cuts and the friendly service remains the same. Julia takes great pride in her business, and it is reflected in the attitude of her team, the cleanliness of the shop, and the number of regular customers. A great experience at a reasonable price!
P.S. The massage at the end is still the best part!

Going to Ogrady's is a very cool experience!
All the barbers are fantastic & there is always great conversation. I personally like going to see Josh..he's in on Fridays and Saturdays. He knows exactly what to do with my balding dome. 16 bucks for a male cut...20 after tip = steal!

I stop in every few weeks for a hair cut. I always enjoy the hot shaving cream and the straight edge razor. The staff is always nice and welcoming. It's a great barber shop atmosphere and I always get a great hair cut.

Ive only been in a few times since im new to the area but this is the type of place why people always support their local business. From the moment you walk in to the moment you leave its always a great atmosphere. Always a clean cut and very good good with the clippers. I'll be a lifer most definitely!!

I've been going here for nearly 2 years. They've assisted me in rediscovering my wavy hair, and help manage it well. They're very friendly - go there on a weekday if you can, since it's so busy on Saturdays you might have to wait a while. There IS a difference between a classic barber shop and a salon. For men this is the way to go!

From the moment you walk in you are greeted by staff and treated with respect. You have the option of taking the first available barber or, since there is no appointment system, you may put your name on a list for the barber you want to wait for.

The owner, Julie, makes her presence known and greets you when you enter and when you leave. There is no escaping this place without being able to express how you truly feel about your new haircut! I have been going here for years and can honestly say I feel like I get the best cut, even better than the last "best cut," each time I come in.

There is a very gifted and talented barber named Josh that works Fridays and Saturdays. He is well worth the wait as there are usually many people in line for him. This man truly has attention to detail and takes his time to make sure you get the best cut each and every time. I've been in scenarios where there were four to five people stacked behind me for Josh and they choose to wait because they know the quality of his cut.

I recommend his fades as this is what I always get. I've been to the "other" barber shop in town and it comes no where close to this cut and treatment. I like how O'Grady's does a razor shave of your neck and sideburns and tops it off with a back massage with a vintage back vibrator.

O'Grady's supports various charities and participates in cancer awareness fundraisers such as Saint Baldrik's near St. Patty's Day which benefits children with cancer.

Weekdays are a dollar cheaper ($16) than Saturdays ($17). It's money well spent either way.

Very nice barbershop. My first time I walked in on a Friday and got a great haircut from a pleasant young lady and there was no wait. By day 2 my hair looked really good. The cut was even, she blended in the top great, and she was very personable and professional. I've been back a few times and tried a couple other local shops and O'Grady's is my favorite. The prices are reasonable and I'd recommend this shop over the chain hair cutters anytime.
