Went here for lunch. The place is quaint with lots of lights strewn about. The beer selection is extensive and they have a lot of unusual IPA's. We were seated promptly . Our waitress was not very knowledgeable when it came to questions regarding the beers they offered which was a little frustrating as they have quite an extensive beer... More

Easy in, easy out, weeknight place to catch up with a friend. Not gourmet food but good portions and reliable choices.

DG is a warm friendly place, with families, couples and larger groups all accommodated. The "classic pub food" is just your regular American standards, with a few meat pies added in. It's a pleasant experience, for sure, but is would not choose the destination for the food, or ambiance. That being said, as a casual place to meet and have... More

A warm and friendly and inviting neighborhood pub. Just what you would expect throughout Great Brit. Classic pub food, hometown recipes, and personal friendly service. We will be back!

Once again friendly service, great food and a staff that seems to really get it. When we are in need of a guinness and a good meal we head here.

A family pub atmosphere that serves good food with healthy portions. The staff is always friendly and if you're a local, you're bound to run into a familiar face.

Excellent food; good selection offered on menu; polite and professional staff; reasonable pricing. The one possible issue is parking. This is a popular place for local customers, and there is limited parking onsite. Other parking options within walking distance.

This is a neighborhood place- you can find the proper audience for you at any time of the day. in early hours, you will see mainly families with kids, at later hours, the adults ( young and old) are crowding the place and you can enjoy a great atmosphere, live sport events, personal service and a good food.

We have been to DG many times, including last Saturday night. It has always proven to be a very consistent and pleasant experience for both lunch and dinner. Always expect a crowd, but the tables turn over fairly quickly. We actually sat at the bar and had dinner there. There is a nice mix of Irish and American fare. Great... More
