Solid Place to Grab a Bite

The other restaurants I had earmarked for dining in the neighborhood were all packed full, so I ended up defaulting to the hotel restaurant. All in all, it was a good choice and I was happy with my meal, served in a friendly and timely manner.

Enjoyed both the food and drink offered here. Gets busy early and they are proud of the Celtic backdrop. Weekday specials include various themes and music, especially on weeknights. Can be busy later on in the evening.

I just had a cheese burger and fries. It was pretty good and I would eat there again. I was unable to drink because of being on business, but they had plenty to offer for beer and alcohol, and was a popular spot on Friday nights.

I have been to Vancouver 3 times and always accidentally end up here. I always have a great time and the bartenders are great. I must admit I have never eaten here but the Magners never disappoints!

We were staying in the hotel above and went for a late lunch. We had the Irish stew and the shepherd's pie. Both were delicious and very filling. They were out of the beer we wanted, but the substitute was fine. All in all just fine.

Perfectly adequate food - shepherd's pie, chicken pot pie, burger at around the $12 mark. Beer - well kept and served in 20 oz pints. Specials - like $10 off bottles of wine on a Wednesday. Ideal for meeting friends. There are booths around the back of the bar which work particularly well. Server's costums are a little old fashioned... More

My wife and I were in Vancouver for the Gray Cup and meet a couple of friends that live in Vancouver at Doolin's. What a fantastic pub. Great variety of beers on tap, food was excellent and the atmosphere was hopping. All pubs should be this good!
