We enjoy going for lunch here especially when we can eat on the patio. The food is great and we have never been disappointed. There is a great selection of beer. The service is outstanding.

One of my favorite lunch places is Donnelly's. They have great service and the food is worth the trip. My favorite are the Reubens and the pulled pork sandwiches. They have an extensive beer menu also with specials daily.

Went here for a weekend lunch because of the good reviews, but the food was barely edible. I don’t think I’ve ever said that about any restaurant.

YOU HAVE TO GET THE TATER TOTS! Food is generally large is quantity and fine in quality--hamburgers, sandwiches, wings (the grilled wings are especially good). Many people loudly at the bar, and couples/families/grandparents/kids at the tables ordering food. Good beer selection. TVs around.

We like to go to Donnelly’s because the menu has a lot to offer everyone and the service is always prompt and friendly. The choice of beers on tap is good too.
