My husband and I had fish and chips, our New York friends had burgers. Very good. Good range of beers, Great atmosphere very buzzy, I think most were locals. Take a look at the two wood panelled rooms, one is a library, they are worth seeing. The service was very good and portions very large as is usual in America.

Guinness on draft and Irish tenors to serenade you for dinner! What else could you want, right? Well, the food was great too! We started with calamari and zuchini sticks - yummy.

I saw this place featured on a show about great hamburger places, either on the Travel Channel or the Food Channel -- not sure which. Well, I came to NY to visit a best friend with terminal cancer and stayed with another good buddy who lives in Woodside. He lives within a block or two of Donovan's and knows the... More

While visiting NYC at Canadian Thanksgiving I took our tribe to Donovan's Pub for dinner. All five of us enjoyed out meal. The service was great. The two new owners came over and introduced themselves. Good family dining in a pub atmosphere.

Went to Donovans a few times on our recent trip to Woodside, NYC, they are famous for their burgers which are great but the chicken parmigiana is superb as well as their crab cakes and great appetisers too. Very good prices. Make sure you are hungry!
