K O’Donnell’s Sports Bar and Grill has been a family-owned sports bar in North Scottsdale since 2005. KO’s was founded by legendary poker player Kevin O’Donnell, who sold it to his daughter Jennifer in 2013. Jenn has helped establish the bar as a great place for regulars who often refer to it as Scottsdale’s’ “Neighborhood Cheers”.

Jen has done well to grow the K O’Donnell’s legacy by introducing a menu of great food with fresh, quality ingredients coupled with a drink menu and beer lineup that makes it one of the top sports bars in Scottsdale. K O’Donnell’s is known for their great food but also has over 70 TVs inside and out, so that fans of any team or any sport can catch their game replete with personal audio on a table set box. At KO’s there literally is not one bad seat in the house.

Reserved a table in front of a tv with a specific football game. Got there and there was a reserved sign with my name on it. Service was great. Menu was good. Good and drinks came out fairly quickly. Places was busy and exciting because of the football games. Actually, portions were so generous, we had to take some home.
A lot of fun. Wait staff was great.

We really enjoy eating here. New to the area and we have gone three times in the last 3 weeks. It’s great for kids, lots of tvs, I’m sure it’d be awesome for big sporting events. Food is very consistent, and it’s great value. I love the steak salad, others have ordered fish tacos, chicken tenders, burgers, etc and all were good. the starter sampler is huge, and I really love the wings. The happy hour deals are pretty good too. Service has been good every time, really no complaints

Food was PHENOMENAL. Server was horrible, I’m assuming it was his first day working at the restaurant or in a restaurant setting ever. Forgot meals, refills were hard to come by, asked for a box about 8 times, had to go to their podium and get one ourselves. I got my meal by the time most were midway to almost complete with theirs. The manager took mine off my bill. Very thankful for that. But the food?! Amazing !!!

Pretzel bites were yummy, potato’s skins not so much. The ones that weren’t burnt were good but that was 50/50. I had the pesto chicken sandwich. It was flavorful and the bun was delicious, unfortunately the bun was twice the size of the chicken so it had to be. The place quiet except for the 3 guys betting on horses in the corner room. But it’s a sports bar so that’s kinda what you would expect. If I’m on the area I might give it a go but I definitely wouldn’t go out of my way like i did this time

Excellent brunch menu and superb food. Food is served attractively on black, rectangular plates and platters. A real plus is that one can make reservations for brunch on weekends.

We reserved a table for five for Sunday lunch and were treated professionally and courteously through-out the visit. The food was excellent, the servings ample, and the server attentive. KOs is going to become our neighborhood haunt!

K O'Donnell's is a real neighborhood gem. We've eaten there many times and always had great food and service. Their recent renovations have made dining there an even better experience. On Mother's Day we went for brunch on the patio. Our server went above and beyond to take care of us. My husband's chicken fried steak and my Southwest breakfast pizza were both outstanding. They have a nice variety of options to choose from so there is something for everyone. I highly recommend K O's. It is so much better than your typical sports bar.

It is a great place to watch the games- tons of TVs. The service was great and the prices were pretty good too. We ate fried raviolis that were pretty good, get a little extra sauce though. we also got a pizza that was a little burned , a couple pieces were not really edible- about 3 or 4 minutes less in the oven would have been better. Not sure that I would go back, there are many better alternatives nearby.

Typical sports bar but food was decent. The service was good.
However, the highlight of our evening was the music by the band, Skarlett Fever. Way better than most bands we have heard. Not only was the technical proficiency of the band above average, the vibe was just a lot of fun.

LOVE that their HH is until 7pm M-F (now how about a Sat HH?). Easy to make reservation--wish I had specified a booth. Like the recent remodel!

Visited on a Saturday at 10am. We had a reservation but it wasn't needed, tables were available during the entire time we were at the restaurant. Good option for brunch, limited brunch menu but you also have the option to order off of their lunch menu as well. It's quite loud in the restaurant so conversation was a bit difficult but we would return, it's nice to find a brunch spot that doesn't have a wait especially if your are dining with young kids.

The place was super hot! I get that it's cold outside but it was HOT! We paid like 7 to 8 dollars for a kids chzburger slider plate and the side was fruit...I swear to God the fruit bowl was a 2 inch circle and the fruit barely peeked out of the top! Service was good, food is good, just give kids more fruit if you're gonna charge so much for a kids meal...take a peek at St Francis and their kids meals and prices...and then people order more drinks...but come on! It actually struck a nerve with me to be so cheap and charge so much for a kids meal!
