Our group of about 15 met there last friday evening for dinner. We took up the back part of the restaurant and had a great waitress, Meghan. She was happy and attentive, those are two things I look for in a waitress.

Seriously, about 10 years ago, I had a friend who was a waitress and I would take my kids to her restaurant for dinner. I had never been taken care of so well. My drink was never empty and the kids always had what they wanted, before they had to ask for it. I know, she spoiled us for all other wait staff. I am beyond picky now. I want to be taken care, and do not want to have to search for my waitress.

Meghan stayed on top of things, glasses were always full and empty dishes did not sit long. To top it off, she separated every bill. Not many places will do that, especially for a large group. In Chicago, it would be unheard of because the waiter/waitress would be losing the tip that would be losing an automatic 18% tip.

All in all, we had a great evening at JK O’Donnell’s!

Saturday, we were up early and researching by 10:30 am. Lunch came a bit late in the day. But a group of us decided we would venture back to JK O’Donnell’s for some lunch. We walked in and they sat us right away, even though they were getting ready for a surprise party. Guess who was our waitress, that’s right Meghan! In great spirits again, and she remembered what we all drank from the night before. Ok, it was a bit early to be hitting the ale. But, it really showed that she knows her job well and appreciates her customers.

So, if you are in the Ft Wayne area and hungry, please see my friend Meghan at JK O’Donnell’s. She is a student who is studying to become a teacher. I for one, like to know that I am helping someone out. Meghan will not let you down. Oh, and make sure you tell her that my blog sent you there. She was ever so gracious to let me take her picture and post it on the internet.
