I had lunch here with my husband and son. We were all really impressed. The service was great. The food was, too. Donnelly's obviously has lots of regular customers and it had a friendly feel.

It has a Pub like atmosphere but family friendly. Service is excellent and food delicious. The Reubens sandwich is a most with sweet potato fries and a tall glass of Guinness to wash it down with.

Really recommend the Buffalo Pirogi Salad. Amazingly good. And you can't leave without trying the Jalapeño Pickles. Service is always good. Cheerful, helpful wait staff.

Donnelly's is a 'go-to' restaurant for us. We enjoy the food, the beer and the TV's. Love the grilled wings and get them often. They always have daily specials.
