This has always been a place to grab something to eat prior to a Twins game. The food was okay at best but the real disappointment on this trip was to find out that they no longer serve their fabulous onion rings. Not likely I...More

We enjoyed one of the many fine lagers here as well as soup and sandwiches. Staff enjoyed their contacts with customers and were solicitous about needs. Televisions were all about but not in your face. There was a baseball game underway. Patrons seemed pleased to...More

We wandered to O'Donovan's after a game and were pleasantly surprised it wasn't packed. We were served right away. Food and drinks were great. It was our servers first night but she did a great job.

First off, definitely use the menu on their website that is linked here on TripAdvisor. The menu I was handed at the pub was not the same and was missing some of the dishes. We walked in on a rainy night before a Twins game....More

Slow service, below-par food, no wonder it's not busy on a Friday night. They offered an "event" menu due to a concert next door. Very limited offerings. Fish sandwich, lots of chicken options, a pot pie and a salad. Blech.

Worth going back to. Fair amount of beer choices. Food was very good, Service wasn't super fast, but thankfully we weren't in any big hurry. Nice Irish Pub atmosphere.

They only offered their event menu. There was only one gluten free option and that was after we adjusted it the entree. The staff was not very knowledgeable about their menu(s). It was clean and really good burgers.

Was in Minneapolis with a friend for the Timberwolves game. 2 places had wait times of over a half hour, no waiting at O'Donovans. Food was sub par but the service was good. Bar screwed up a bourbon and 7.

Across from First Avenue nightclub, this Irish pub is one of many fantastic ones in Minneapolis where you'll actually find Irish patrons enjoying a pint. Good food, perfect late-night spot to hit up for chips before hopping on the light rail home.
