We went to O'Donnell's on Mother's Day without reservation and had about a 15-20 min. wait and were seated. It took a while for the waitress to
get to use and we placed our drink order which was 5 teas and 1 glass of wine. The place a less than half full and it took over 5 mins. to get our drinks, then another 5 or more mins. for her to return and we all placed our orders. There were 6 of us and the orders were broken down in 3 separate tickets. We finally got our appetizers, which were fair, fried green tomatoes and their version of a shrimp remoulade. Then came our salads, and then finally our main courses. We were all served except my sister who sat there dumb-founded without a main course. She got up and tried to find our waitress who was finally located and a few minutes later her meal was brought out. The food was fair, 2 of us had eggplant medallions with shrimp, pasta and vegetables, 2 others had shrimp with pasta (4 shrimp) on each serving, 1 shrimp with grits (polenta) and 1 fish dinner. They were all good but not anything to brag about, over-priced and the waitress was horrid.
She had to redo the tickets 3 times before she finally got them correct. We all were over charged for 1 meal on each ticket, charged for gumbo on 2 tickets but only ordered 1 bowl and finally after the third time it was finally correct. This is one place we will never go to again. The waitress was not at all understanding about the errors she had done on our tickets and to all of us at the table she seemed aggreviated and didn't want to be bothered. Overpriced, very poor service and the food was to say the least fair. Never again when we are visiting family in the area will we pass through their doors. Not a good experience. We would give it a rating of 1 star.
