We have been at Eagle Lake for almost 30 years. We were looking for someplace different to eat. What looks like a bar is actually a great restaurant! We were surprised at the quality of the food, it was delicious. The filet mignon was excellent, prime rib was tender and perfectly prepared, brazillion lobster tail was well prepared, extensive, fresh... More

The food, atmosphere, service and salad bar here are all wonderful. Just a little place along the highway, but well worth the stop. My wife's filet was done to perfection, which seems to be , no pun intended, a rare thing these days. The owner/server was very attentive and a great conversationalist. The salad bar was top notch, with everything... More

This place is a solid 4. Ample parking. Nice atmosphere. Friendly service. The salad bar is great. The food is very good. Maybe just a little pricey.

We visited O'Donnells on a sleepy winter afternoon - there are not many food options near Big Bass Lake. We were so pleasantly surprised. The owner was our waiter!! We ordered two grilled chicken sandwiches and they were delicious. Food was fresh and hot, and the fries was fabulous!! The menu is a bit limited - not a ton of... More

If you are in the Big Bass Lake/Gouldsboro area, you MUST go to O'DONNELL'S. Casual gourmet is no misnomer...the food is inventive and satisfying while the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. This family-owned place is a gem...and, yes, you can bring your out-of-town guests. Don't let the modest appearance of the premises give you pause...the place is done up inside... More

This small family owned restaurant and bar has nice friendly local staff serving fresh food. Recent menu changes and upgrades of a new floor and more seating along with a pool table did not take away from the limited seating. Food is prepared to order and if you have a large party call to make sure the kitchen will handle... More

Not the worst place in area but not the best. Onion soup is good. Drinks are OK. Interior is clean but stools and chairs are not comfortable....It's a locals bar.

Hello!! This establishment is probably before its time. It has 'NewYork' prices .. but ... great quality. It has the only Gourmet Chef left here on the Mountain that I know of. The person cooking knows their spices and herbs. North, the Raintree was a noted eatery in Newfoundland and just couldn't make it. I hope O'Donnell's can survive the... More
