Not a great stop if you’re looking for a selection of US micro’s. Service erratic.

Probably the best place to get a craft beer on tap in Fort Wayne. Place is always busy. Availability of some items on the menu has been an issue, but not too much to cry about. Great food. This was the place where I first had Old Rasputin...my life was forever changed.

Great little ale house we visited while in town. Had an Alpha King and the Hopivore which was a new one to me. Good service and food was quite good.

JK’s is a nice addition to the downtown area. It does have an Irish Pub atmosophere. Decent beer selection and staff is always friend. Food selection is limited, which prevents take a variety of out of town friends for dinner. BUT, a great place for after work drinks and socializing.

Was one of the 1st places in The Fort to offer a large selection of craft beer. The food was very good. A little expensive.

My favorite place to hang out in Fort Wayne. Its a very nice pub with an Irish theme and run by Irish. They have daily specials prepared by the staff and it is authentic. But we come for the beer and they have an outstanding selection. They have beers that you cannot get in the stores around town. FFF Behemoth, Westmalle, Karmeleit. They may not have the hugest selection, but it is impressive and they have gems of evey style.

This Irish themed establishment has the best selection of beers in Fort Wayne. There may be one place with more beers available, but the quality of the 70 or so selections available at O’Donnell’s isn’t even close to being matched by any other restaurant or bar in town. Enjoy an Olfabrikken Porter, Ommegang Hennepin, or Stone Arrogant Bastard among others in their wide selection. Get Weihenstephaner Hefeweizen on tap. I haven’t had a lot of their food, but what I had was very good. Okay, so all I’ve had were a couple of their desserts, but they’re delicious. It is pretty pricey. You don’t go to O’Donnell’s for a cheap drink and food. It’s so worth it though. I did mark them down a little bit for too often being out of some beers on the menu.

In the middle of the block on Wayne Street with street parking in front and lot parking up the street. Clean brick and wood older building with bar in middle and tables in the front and on the right for food and beverages. Eleven taps with the one Warbird I wanted to try. All were solid drinkable brews. Freindly bartender with good knowledge. Did not eat, but the menu of starters, salads, and Irish entrees looked very good. Good location and I will stop again.
