Right in the heart of downtown Fort Wayne is J.K. O’Donnell’s, Fort Wayne’s premier Irish ale house. From the moment you walk in, you’ll feel like you’ve walked from Indiana to Ireland, just by crossing the threshold. JK’s offers traditional Irish fare, including fish and chips, Shepherd’s pie, and scotch eggs, as well as an extensive beer, wine, and spirits list. Enjoy your meal in the large family room, complete with its cozy fireplace, or head outside to their front or back patio (bonus – the back patio is pup-friendly!). Need somewhere to conduct your meeting? You can indulge in Irish fare while meeting in a semi-private booth inside the restaurant. To immerse yourself even deeper into Irish culture, JK’s conducts live, traditional Irish music once a week. Disclaimer: We’re not responsible for your decision to move to Ireland after your visit!




Is there a kid’s menu? Yep! Their kid’s menu offers four meals that are $4 and under.

What kind of beer do they offer? JK’s offers an extensive beer list, featuring beers from Ireland, Germany, Sweden, Scotland, Belgium, Spain, England, Russia, Denmark, and the U.S.


Are they wheelchair accessible? Yes!
