A nice family restaurant.

I had the fried chicken which was nice and crisp and well-seasoned. The pub had several specials which looked good. The pub is within walking distance of the Elk Cove Inn, which makes it very handy. There is also a parking lot available.

During our stay at Elk we dined at Bridget Dolan's Pub. While most of the town is closed by 6pm, this place was a nice find. We tried the wings, fish and chips, pizza and pasta. They were all good and tasty. Liked the little place and would definitely recommend.

Very small local pub. The food was OK, not great. The pints were fresh! Not many food options in town and this will do if the others are not open.

My husband and I had dinner here last Friday during a Mendocino rain storm. The atmosphere is small townie and the service and food good. Make reservations early. It's a small place and popular with the locals and tourists.

We ate two nights at the Pub. Pub is really not descriptive, I would say comfortable room, friendly bar and great service. The food is great. The best clam chowder I ever had. The room is a little small so conversations can be overheard. We sat next to a table of four locals, including Queenie (from Queenies roadhouse cafe -... More

Can do attitude of the staff overshadows the average at best nature of the food. Lights in dining rook were too bright. They should lower on a rheostat and use lighted candles on tables to improve atmosphere.

We stopped in after a long day on the road, for a drink, and wound up eating. What a great find. Service Was very good, although it was busy the waitress was very attentive. The food service was fast, we had mostly soup and appatizers.

Great atmosphere, good food, excellent service and friendly locals. What's not to like? Menu was good pub fare. I had the 'special' of fresh salmon which was possibly the best I have ever tasted.
