In town on business, had fun with the staff and locals. The food was good, and the staff explained the menu with enthusiasm. Thank you!

First and foremost they have a wonderful selection of beer; including the freshest Guinness I've had in months. Their Irish specialties are always delicious. The food is always fresh, hot and tasty. We eat here every month and have never had a bad meal or poor service.

You must try the fried pickles but nothing compares to the desert. Banoffee is so delicious everyone loves it. Great food for lunch or dinner. Wonderful pub.

J.K. O'Donnell's is not your average Irish Pub. The wait staff are friendly and helpful. The beers and whiskeys are abundant in variety and the beers on tap can be ordered in pints or half pints which is nice if you want to try several (for that matter, feel free to ask for a taste of any you are curious...

Great atmosphere, excellent food and a pretty good drink selection make this an excellent place to dine or drink. Pub is pretty authentic Irish Pub decore. Beer selection is excellent. Never had a bad meal here. Weekends can get a bit crowded, but typical week night has always been a good time to go.

If you go, get a Bloody Mary…AMAZING! Spicy, strong and comes with an asparagus spear, pickle, candied bacon, celery. Maybe olives, I can't remember but its so good! Nice, calm, quiet atmosphere and good food. I recommend!
