Great friendly atmosphere! We were just in West Desmoines for 2 nights and immediately felt like one of the locals at A.K. O'Connors!

Its nice to know there is always a friend at AKs,,,, I love the staff and theyt treat me right..... come join the club.... if you can handle it....lol ...... Alaska style.....
This is a great place to get a drink! They have live music almost every Weekend and the do not charge a cover! How awesome is that?
I'll admit they could dust a little bit. I was sitting in a corner booth by the window and was forced to look at quite a few dead bugs. Ick. But what can you do? It is a dive bar.
Every time I go there I see people I know and the servers (Or server, rather. I swear they have one server other than the bartenders! And she works her ass off!) are always super nice and glad to see me!
I deffinately try and keep up tp date on who is playing there!
I hit AKs fairly regularly and have always gotten great service. Plus this place lots of bar games (pool, foosball, shuffleboard, etc) and Dead Guy Ale on tap. Great place for happy hour or last stop on the way home.
Welll I'm sorry Sean had a bad night.
I've been there for over 3-4 years, and I can understand if someone did not get instantaneous service, but to say they were rude? I'd say that SOME one was looking for a 'fight' (figuratively speaking). As someone who has been barhopping for a few decades... I have been at a LOT of places a hell of a lot worse!
OK...Sometimes the staff is not entirely on top of thangs... but rude?? NOT EVEN CLOSE! My guess is that if they WERE rude... the 'customer' deserved it!! Like I said... been there many times... and have seen many RUDE CUSTOMERS! End of story.
I LOVE THIS PLACE!!
Not a bad place for a drink, especially on Wednesday night with Pianopalooza, if it weren't for the staff. It was literally the worst service I have ever had at a bar. The waitstaff is inattentive, and when they actually do get around serving you, they are rude. If you go, don't expect anything.......
