Stopped in for drinks with friends & ending up taking some soda bread home after eating the Irish potato soup! Food was really good, wait staff friendly and personable and will make sure to come back in the future!!

Good place across the street from First Avenue. Lots of established beer brands and flavors. The atmosphere is very Irish pub.

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...More
