A friend and I have stopped in here a few times after Timberwolves games. It's a cozy layout with plenty of booth seating & good service if not too busy. The bartenders know their whiskey even if I disagree with their definition of "quality." We had a burger and drinks this last time and were in an out within the... More

We stop here before we attend events at Target Center, which is right across the street. We also celebrates our birthdays here also. The place has a warm dark wood and stained glass interior. Very friendly staff and the food is plentiful and so good. Warning, the chicken pot pie will easily feed two, but is so good you probably... More

We try to stop in at O'Donovan's every now and then to visit with the friendly staff and customers that seem to frequent the place. Beer is always cold and they have great drink specials for the downtown area.

We stopped here for food and drinks before a concert at Target Center. Easily the slowest service I've had in a very long time. We ended up going inside for our tab that the server never brought to our table. It took over 30 minutes to get a round of drinks. We paid for food we never received. Our server... More

We were waiting in line for an event at the club First Avenue but the plan was to go to O'Donovan's Irish Pub first! Well, seeing the line that was forming, one of us got in line, the other (me) went to order food. The best part about our experience other than our burgers being delicious was that the waitress...

Great pub food and excellent service at our recent trip to see the TWINS. Burgers and Irish Stew at our table were HOT and FRESH. "Fish and Chips" at nearby tables looked appetizing as well. Street Construction outside should not delay you since the beer glasses were large and full.

We stopped in after a Twins game recently because we were staying at the Loews Hotel. Food and drinks were good....once we were finally able to order. We literally had to beg to get a server. This was the WORST SERVICE I've had at any restaurant/bar in a very long time. We were only one couple and there were bigger... More
