I’m sure all the changes make financial sense and the food is still good, but I went there today for the last time. Guinness is no better than cans now and served ice cold out of the tap, bartender was aloof, manager at hostess stand...More

Looked for a place to chill and have a slow lunch. This was perfect. The staff were so incredibly friendly and nice. I had the mussels and fries. Excellent choice. Nice sitting by the windows.

O’Dowd’s is ideally situated on the Plaza in Kansas City. Good atmosphere, & while the ladies shop, the guys can have a beverage, watch sports, and, well, not have to “hold the purse.” Drinks were solid, bar food was above expectations.

We dropped by for lunch and were able to get a nice table on the deck. The service was good and the food was enjoyable. Nothing remarkable happened good or bad but the experience was pleasant enough to come here again.
