We are your neighborhood sports bar

Located in the North-Center Section of Bloomfield with neon signs in the window, digital downloading jukebox against the wall and model ships made from Budweiser cans, Obal’s is the quintessential neighborhood sports bar. Owned for over 32 years, the Janes Family has owned Obal’s Inn. It has come to be known not only as a friendly neighborhood sports bar but also as a Mecca for rib lovers. Our barbequed baby-back ribs were once offered only on Wednesdays, but due to overwhelming demand can now be enjoyed on Thursdays too.

Don't forget our extras!

We also have a pool table and internet jukebox for your enjoyment, and we have wireless Internet available for free, as well. Don't forget our complete wine list, a large variety of draft and bottled beer plus seasonal favorites and a relaxing outdoor veranda for your smoking pleasure.

Acclaimed, casual atmosphere

Please don’t hesitate to come in and meet our friendly staff and casual atmosphere and be part of the Obal’s experience.


As Pete Genovese, from the Star Ledger, once wrote, "The atmosphere is cozy, the conversation - life, sports, food, relationships - fascinating. Call it Cheers with good food!"

Obal’s offers a full menu plus daily specials cooked up by Chef Keith Janes.


Obal’s has plenty of TV’s hooked up to a Satellite for all your game watching entertainment.
