Stopped in to wet my whistle, sampled some of the local ale and was not disappointed. This pub has nice decor and has a pretty typical pub menu. Did not try any food items. They have a rooftop patio that is cigar friendly. Would definitely return.

O'Dowds is an Irish Pub. It has all the beers, and whiskeys and standard pub food you are looking for. I had the fish and chips, with malt vinegar and Guinness Stout. The little bit more is that there is ample table seating including outdoors, and there is a live musician playing and singing. The decor was nice, with some... More

Went with wife and kids. Had lunch up on the upper deck. Good food and good service, priced pretty similar to all the others in the area. 70 bucks plus tip for a family of four, lunch and drinks.

Always make it a point to Stop for a Guinness when walking the Plaza. This is your classic pub style place with a decent Irish menu. I always have to go with the Fish & Chips, which are always spot on. Good selection of beer and the service has always been friendly and attentive. Will always plan on returning every... More

Spent time during a festival weekend at O'Dowd's. Service wasn't that great during the day or at night. I did like being able to hang out on the roof.

My wife and I arrived in Kansas City's Country Club Plaza for the first time and we were very hungry. Not knowing the area restaurants, we kind of stumbles into O'Dowd's. It was like walking into a Dublin pub with a dark wood interior and elevated dining areas one sees in many pubs in the UK and Ireland. The menu... More

The design and decor prepares you for yet another homage-to-the-old-sod Irish pub experience... but the fare is a fresh, updated take on casual, fun food and drink. Lots of comfort-food offerings, pub grub, too; and several Irish traditional entries rendered with a tasty twist. More than a dozen local and imported drafts, ranging from the standards to Boulevard Tank 7... More

First night in KC, we stumbled across this place walking the Plaza in attempt to find dinner. Hurray for this! What great food and service!! I ordered something I'd never heard of (wish the menu was included here so I could recommend) my daughter had the stew, and my hubby the fish'n'chips. All was delicious and we cleaned our plates....

We were a big, loud family group for lunch. Many more interesting draft selections and on a HOT day that made everyone happy. The place was pretty full for the middle of the afternoon, so the servers had to hustle a bit. We liked the fish and chips and the pork tenderloin (NOT Irish, but tasty). The food came out... More

Walked here from our hotel for a late afternoon beer. Hostess seemed irked we weren't eating even though it was only about 5:00. Waitress was very nice. Their menu showed a nice variety of house drink specials but we just ordered a couple pints. Was a nice break and quiet enough to hold a conversation.
