    First opening of the season. Terrific service. Probably should have kept with the specials as short rib was a bit dry. Wife had a decent steak. Rather loud but a good casual experience on the island.

    My husband has several food allergies and O’Donnell’s always accommodates his needs without any issues. O’Donnell’s is our go-to spot in Sea Isle. The specials are always delicious and the prices are reasonable. The wait staff is friendly and helpful…especially Anthony.

    I went for the Braised Short Ribs and was not disappointed! Delicious! They had a swordfish special that sounded awesome too with a ginger soy sauce and pineapple salsa, but we did not try that. I enjoyed a key lime martini, husband had a Guinness and bangers and mash which was also great. Maura was our server and she was delightful. Water was filled throughout our stay and plates were cleared in a timely manner.

    A friend recommended O’Donnells to me, indicating that the food is consistently good. Our dinner was good and the atmosphere was nice. Service was also good. It would be appreciated if they would share in advance that using a credit card will result in an extra 3.5.% charge on the bill.

    We almost always make a visit at the Pour House when vacationing in Sea Isle City. It's dependable and always a good meal. My Chilean Sea Bass dish was well done and nicely presented, and the wedge salad is a favorite start to the meal. Service was excellent as usual.

    Freshest and best prepared seafood on the island, far! Don’t let the name fool fool you in terms of their menu - all of their traditional Irish house favorites are delicious, of course, but they have such a wider selection than most people realize! Lump crab cakes are heavenly, ahi tuna seared to perfection, crab and mango wontons, spicy shrimp and sausage skewers… I’m salivating. Staff is always friendly, quick to please and make you feel at home.

    The ambiance was great! Servers were doing their best, food looked amazing, the shrimp skewer appetizer was fantastic! The entree was presentable, but overall tasted bland. There was nothing to write home about for the shepherds pie, and the short rib was mostly good but could have used more of the flavorful mustard sauce.

    Bathroom situation needs to be improved . If you are dining inside you are competing with huge crowd of people who are outside watching the band . Although they have portapoties outside - they are usually 30 deep so many of the people are coming inside creating a line for the bathroom inside that the diners are supposed to have access to - I've been here many times and this has never been an issue until Patty Greene - they need to have more bathrooms - seems like they are running well over occupancy based on the situation .

    We made last minute reservations to sit outside. It was adorable. Our server was professional and very sweet. The Duck flatbread was amazing. The fried Brie was perfectly fried and melted nicely when you cut it open. Loved the wedge salad and my sister said the salmon was cooked to perfection. The crowd was mellow. The Phillies game was on and the bar spot was a perfect size. This is a great little outside place. I will definitely go back there.
