Fun for Drinks

Had a nice time on Sunday visiting Donaleigh's. A good pub atmosphere with great staff and a fun clientele. They have a variety of tap beers and the ones we had were cold and tasted great. We enjoyed the poutine with the Guinness gravy, give them a try. Will stop in again when in the area.

My sister and I came by to have lunch on her birthday. We ordered typical bar food, nachos, a side salad, ciders and wine. The roasted beet salad was really delicious... goat cheese, roasted walnuts... spectacularly delicious. And then.... the Nachos. They are made with thick cut potato "chips".... the cheese, peppers, salsa and sour cream are layered at least... More

A few of us wanted a night out. We ordered wings, nachos and sweet potato fries. The portions are VERY generous. We walked were not able to finish eating all the food.

First time but not the last. Definitely recommend the Irish nachos made with potatoes, not tortilla chips and the croissant bread pudding!

Chosen for lunch by my son and daughter-in-law I tagged along wondering what pub food I might make do with - what a pleasant surprise this was! First of all the place is huge and popular, roomy and well kept. Manages to have plenty of pub vibe without the often dark brewery smell mood. The service was cheery and professional... More

A little loud if you are going for conversation, but the food is great, the drinks are great and the people who work there are excellent! I had a great time.

My friends and I love this place, we come in all the time and it was actually where a bunch of us went/met the first week of our post-grad. We decided for our last day of class to head here for some drinks and some food in celebration of being done. Our server was not friendly at all she did... More

Believe what you have read about the Lobster Mac. My wife enjoyed this entrée - and I swear I couldn't keep my fork away from her plate! This despite the fact that my very own Steak and Brie sandwich was exceptional. This steak "sandwich" was served open faced, grilled medium rare, topped with sautéed mushrooms and melted brie slices. It... More

Just echoing what others have said, the Lobster Mac and Cheese is brilliant! Get it with the sweet potato fries as well. I have been here a couple of times now and it is a great place overall. The atmosphere is awesome and it is always packed at the weekends. The service is also very good and the waitresses are... More

It's a very busy spot on a Saturday night. You can't make dinner reservations after 6pm. We arrived at 7 and waited for 30 minutes for a table, and another 60 minutes to get our dinner. The French Onion soup was tasty, heavy on the salt, the BBQ ribs were good. Typical pub fare.
