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”.

Jenn 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.

We have gone there for years however I was a bit surprised when I was charged .50 to get salad dressing on an entree I couldn’t finish and was taking home. I have never experienced that even in upscale places

Brunch pizza is a good idea however the end result is quite dry. Others I have had used milk gravy and theirs has hollandaise sauce. Perhaps some for dipping would solve the problem.

I can't say enough about the staff here. We had a reservation for 10 last night to watch the Phoenix Suns playoff game. Our table was labeled and ready. The staff immediately explained that there had been some issues with a maintenance contractor earlier in the day and that created problems in the kitchen area. This may cause the kitchen to be slower than usual. The food was slower than would normally be expected but we were all truly amazed at the hustle of the staff and owner to make everyone's experience the absolute best possible. They were communicative. They apologized a million times. In the end, they overcame a mountain of issues and we only noticed a small delay in food delivery. The food was amazing. Service was fantastic, and everyone conducted themselves professionally under less than ideal circumstances. We will go again and again as this is the type of restaurant we should all support!

One of our favorite places for Happy Hour. Service was great considering we had a group of ten and needed the tab split 5 ways. They kept up on drink orders and the appetizers didn’t take long at all to get. We sat on the outer edge of the patio in 102 degree heat (our fault). Although they do have misters and fans, it seemed they blew over the top of us. It was a bit warm, but again, it was our choice to be in the patio. Overall, another great time at K’O’s!!

I love coming here to watch sports and have a bite to eat. There are plenty of tvs and they will put on which ever game you are looking to watch which is great when you and your family want to watch different sports that are happening at the same time. Sometimes the service can be a little slow, but the food is good.

We celebrated Mother's Day by having brunch on the patio at K O's and it was another excellent experience. All of their staff are friendly and attentive. The menu offers a nice variety and everything is really good. I especially recommend the green chile pork plate - just exceptional. They had terrific live music which made the day even more special. And it is so pleasant eating out on their patio. You can't go wrong with K O'Donnell's. It is just a real neighborhood gem.

K O'Donnell's has been and continues to be a go-to spot for us. Service is great, food selection is fantastic and all around fun atmosphere. Tried their brunch for Mother's Day and it was just as great as the rest of the menu. Also a dog friendly patio and can tell that K O'Donnell's is a dog loving restaurant. Keep it up!

3 of us - a guest and my husband and me - asked to sit outside.
We were escorted to a table blocked in by 2 walls in a corner. When I commented on water dripping on the partner table I was told it was from the “watering system” and ...?
When I asked someone else could anything be done, she brought a bundle of napkins! Our guest was appalled since it was splashing on the table partnering our table.
We later learned our table received no benefit from being outside and getting airflow - overall, the worst table on the patio.
Food was totally unremarkable.

We asked for your Saturday specials and the waitress had no idea. We mentioned your website shows daily specials. She had no idea and didn’t offer to ask. We thought that was poor service.

The food tasted fine. The hashbrowns were not hot, but they did offer to make new however . There was very little hollandaise sauce over the eggs and and the English muffin was very difficult to cut...not fresh. The cored beef hash dish was excellent, but would not recommed the ovecakes.
