A Family Tradition Since 1956
McDonnell’s is a classic family restaurant that’s been serving Carbondale for decades. This eatery started off as a little corner luncheonette and grew over the years into a full-scale restaurant serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner. From home-style comfort foods to premium steaks and seafood, McDonnell’s has it all.
Between the homemade food and the rustic antique décor, McDonnell’s is a little slice of Americana. Their dining room is family friendly, and a kids’ menu is available. They also provide catering services.
The menu truly offers something for everyone. The breakfast menu offers hearty platters, omelettes, hot cakes, French toast, and other favorites. For lunch, they offer American classics like sandwiches, salads, and burgers.
For dinner, try entrees like the top round of beef or McDonnell’s own hand-breaded fried chicken. They also have choice steaks, Italian dinners, and seafood.
