Food and service is always great. We have been going there for over twelve years and have always liked the experience.

We like ordinary food done well. Liver and onions (with bacon on top) is a specialty. Cottage pie (ground beef and brown gravy covered w potatoes, chopped carrots n peas) was too greasy. Any place can have an off day.... Love the Irish beers on tap! First time not getting server's name. Won't get it off the bill either. She... More

Katie ODonald's has the best burgers we've ever had! Three out of four in our party got different versions of the burger and all 3 were raving about them. The burgers are charbroiled, juicy and large - yummy! The service was terrific, the beer cold, the atmosphere delightful and the entire place very clean. Prices are competitive. We'll be back...

Good local tavern with good food. Beware the bartender may pay more attention to his friends. Otherwise we enjoy going here.

First night in Bluffton, S.C. and the hotel recommended Katie's for dinner. It was very good. I had the Chicken Parmesan and my husband had Katie's Fish and Chips. Food was very good. I would recommend this to anyone staying at the Holiday Inn Express in Bluffton, S.C. It is walking distance from the hotel.

Katie O"Donalds is a wonderful place to enjoy quality food and drinks in the quaint, coastal town of Bluffton, SC. An Irish bar with a Southern twang, Katie O' Donalds has the best of both worlds. The excellent wait and bar staff provides exquisite customer service and conversation. Between the warm company of it's regulars for happy hour and the... More

Quaint place close to the Outlet Mall. Great burgers and of course Brews. We were glad it was a short walk from our hotel as we all wanted to relax and drink beer. We enjoyed the food, beer and the staff.

The food at this pub was great and the staff were friendly. After dinner, we waited for over an hour for a taxi on a cold windy night until we were saved by one of the fabulous bar staff who arranged for our safe journey back to the hotel. Outstanding!

We ate here while staying next door at the Holiday Inn Express. Your room key gets you a 10% discount. The atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable. The wait staff was quick and efficient. I'm a very picky eater. I asked for several substitutions and changes from the menu and was accommodated every time. No complaints about the drinks either. I... More
