Was pleasantly surprised by this authentic-looking restaurant tucked away on the streets of Peoria. The décor is true Ireland and the restaurant, including the bathrooms, were very clean. Our waitress, Sam, was very attentive without overdoing. Food was very good. I ordered the grilled tuna sandwich and it was wonderful. My husband also liked the special that day, an Irish... More

Their beer choices are top notch. Their shepherd's pie is amazing! I also had the blackened tilapia and it was delicious too.

We visited for dinner last Friday night. sInce it was Lent, we ordered the catfish. The catfish here are huge and fried to the perfect crisp. However, be sure to get there before 6 pm as they ran out of catfish. We then ordered the Walleye, which was excellent for our second choice. If it weren't Lent, I would have... More

Went to Donnelly's with my dad on a Saturday for lunch. They weren't too busy and we were seated right away. I knew what I wanted so I didn't even look at the menu. I went with the small tenderloin and added an order of fries. My dad ordered a small tenderloin also. It is March Madness time and all... More

The bangers are not Irish, the ribeye had a lot of fat. Waitress was fine. Took quite a long time for the food to arrive. My steak was cold when it finally arrived. This is my second visit here. Disappointing.

It was a good place to go. I had never been there before. Even though they were crowded that night the waiter and waitress were jolly on the spot with our drinks and meals the food was very good as well.

Visited with my wife, mother-in-law and sister-in-law. Couldn't decide on a beer, the bartender offered a couple of samples. Decided on a dark lager which was creamy and smooth, my wife had a Harp lager. We ordered a pulled pork nacho appetizer, chicken wings with mild sauce, appetizer sampler, and grilled pork chop sandwich. All were great, tasty and delivered... More

This Irish/American Pub is great for casual meal with a diverse menu of traditional pub food done well. Standouts include a pulled pork nachos so bountiful it was clearly meant as a meal for two. The hand cut fries were blessedly crisp. The fish and chips was exceptional. The LARGE catfish looked good on our neighbor-diner's table, but I elected... More

We went for lunch and had a great experience! My 5 year old even ate. The service was fast and friendly. My wife and daughter really enjoyed the Irish stew and I loved the Shepherd's Pie.
