The service is very friendly, as is the atmosphere; the choice of beer is good too with a mixture of Irish and American - and free popcorn- ask for the blue cheese dipping sauce!

If you're looking to be well-taken-care-of by staff, this is not the place for you. The cheeseburger is excellent and makes it worth the long wait for service. Probably the best anywhere around. They don't take credit cards, so bring your cash.

The best pub food you can imagine -- all made with love because the restaurant is locally owned and operated. Everything about it feels like a neighborhood bar -- from the framed photos lining all the wall space to the serve yourself popcorn machine that makes Dunleavy's always smell so delicious. The staff is so nice and accommodating. And here's... More

Absolutely great food and wonderful owners. Just participated in the "Polar Bear Plunge" for Special Olympics and later enjoyed a fantastic meal. You can't go wrong with this place. Fresh Ingredients all prepared perfectly. My highest rating!!!

Dunleavy's is an Irish pub with beer, wine, burgers, hot dogs, sandwiches and just plain great local color. My husband and I always feel very at home in Dunleavy's. The wait staff is so extremely friendly. Go have a beer with a friend and enjoy!

My husband and I actually visit here pretty regularly. From the first time we ever visited, everyone was friendly and the food was delicious! Usually I get the wings, but the burgers are yummy as well...

No, Sam's not drawing another beer and Norm's not quaffing them down, but for some reason I start hearing the "Cheers" theme song every time I walk into this place. What city in the world have you not found an Irish pub? And what neighborhood doesn't deserve a local tavern? This one is ours. Cold beer, though if you're looking... More

Stopped in for a quick drink on a spur of the moment road trip from Mount Pleasant. Friendly place, cold beer, Irish comforts abound. Looking forward to spending more time on the next trip to the island.

Dunleavys Pub is an old favorite that we return to whenever we can. Its got a friendly atmosphere with a fun décor and also very good food. Munch on free popcorn while waiting for your food, but not to much mind you as the food is excellent! I had a Reuban which I loved. Remember to bring cash as they... More

If you have been to Sullivan's Island you know Dunleavy's! It has been there for so long! And the place is like your friend's backyard. Best known for their New Year's Day Polar Bear Plunge it also has great tap beer and good hardy pub food. Shepherd's Pie is a favorite but I love the wings - never frozen and... More
