Shawn O'Donnell's is an Irish pub located at the base of the Smith Tower in Seattle's historic Pioneer Square neighborhood. Since 2006 they've been serving traditional Irish fare like corned beef and cabbage, shepherd’s pie, and fish n’ chips; and, as always, 20 ounce imperial pints of the best that Ireland and the Northwest have to offer.

The location didn’t have my reservation, even though I had updated it the day prior. The waitress wasn’t very good either. She got my order done correctly but then when it was incorrect, she came back to show me twice that she had it correct.

Awesome fish and chips . The best fish ever. Smaller pieces with a lovely crisp batter . Only reason I didn’t give them five stars is due to lack of cleanliness. The ketchup bottle was so dirty that I refused to put ketchup on my fries . I only hope the kitchen is cleaner . Table could use a good wipe as well .

I met a friend for lunch at Shawn O'Donnell's. We were seated next to a larger group and could barely hear each other over the noise. Menu has a wide variety of options, but it seems to lean more toward the expanded bar menu. I had the fish, chips and chowder. It was fine. Portions were a bit skimpy on the fish.

They were very accommodating with my last minute changes to my reservation and the staff was very knowledgeable; the atmosphere top notch, and a great time was had by all. Since we couldn't be in Ireland for my husband's birthday this year, we were thrilled to have found a local place that resembled some of the pubs we hung out in Ireland. Will definitely be back!

A fun place to have a good meal. We ate here first before our Ghost Tour. The environment is fun and enjoyable.

Pre Ed Sheeran show met our adult kids for dinner. Food was good and value was good especially for Seattle but I prefer my corned beef cut across the grain and this was with it making it stringy and more difficult to eat. Otherwise great experience.

Went to grab a bite before the soccer game. Great location, easy walk to the stadium. If you are looking for pub food and a bit of the Irish Luck this is a great spot!

Nice atmosphere, super friendly staff, great location for the stadium. The food was mediocre - breaded fish and chips when I had high hopes for “proper” batter an Irish bar!

Given how busy they must get with the stadium, I suspect it’s a turnover thing, the food was out quick so can’t expect gourmet. Anyway, perfectly fine.

Went there before a show at Centurylink Field. Staff was AMAZING! Had a reservation for 4 and they happily allowed us to add two more folks. Everything you could want in an Irish Pub! So great to experience such stellar customer service. Will definitely be back.

It was nice that they took a lunch reservation on a busy day. Booths are big enough to accommodate four adults, service was excellent and we never felt rushed.
