Stopped by for quick dinner after volunteering on Hilton Head. Dinner was great. My wife had the steak sandwich and I had an open face beef. Both were great and more than satisfied us. Added surprise was an entertainer who appears there twice a year. What a treat! This was our first dinner there as we have been there several... More

the waitress kept making sure we were okay. there was a hearty piece of meatloaf, tasty mashed potatoes, but the gravy was a little too salty, the roll was soft and tasty and the vegetables had a good flavor. but the bartender was too busy leaning back.

Four of us decided to try this Irish pub out last Saturday night. Not knowing how crowded it would be in the height of summer only about 7-8 miles from Hilton Head we'd made reservations. Totally not necessary. Plenty of filled tables but no waiting. Friendly staff (always a plus in my book), clean and roomy. Menu wasn't huge but... More

I had the cottage pie and it was very meaty and flavorful. It is very heavy for the stomach! The sweet tea wasn't very sweet. The fried artichoke hearts were very tasty, but you only got 4 which wasn't worth the money. My fiancé got the Irish dip sandwich, and it was to die for!

We were greeted as soon as we walked in. The hostess took us right to a table. The four of us started a conversation while we waited for a server to show up but she was there in a nanosecond. She took our drink orders and they too were delivered quickly. While the menus isn't extensive it is ample and... More

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.
