An institution!

Family-run Dunleavey's has been a constant on the island ever since we started visiting here 20 years ago and we love going back there! 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... read more

We've been going to Dunleavy's for over a decade and this visit didn't live up to expectations. A few of us in our party ordered our burgers medium well and they came almost burnt and dry. It was wing night which everyone enjoyed, but the servers need to keep the drinks filled. I'll give them one more chance but will... More

a local sent us to Sullivan's Island, found this corner pub, hardly anyone there, great service, waitress very personable. Ordered the special, which was lasagna, but you could tell by it's appearance it was not made fresh, it had been frozen and when you bit into it, it was hot, until you cut into the center and it was still...

We will never go back to this restaurant. We wanted somewhere we could go as a family. The menu doesn't offer any choices... Basically you can have wings, a burger, or a hot dog. They don't have a fryer so French fries aren't on the menu. All of their ingredients are premade and nothing is fresh. To start we ordered... More

I'm a fan of Irish bars and casual atmosphere with locals while on vacation and Dunleavy's fit the bill. I had the Ruben sandwich for $9.50 and was well satisfied - it was cooked to perfection and more than I could eat in one sitting when drinking a beer with it. There weren't too many people in there at the... More

We went one night after another place to pop in and have some wings, a Guinness and a burger. We heard the burgers there were good. The wings were good, not fried which is a nice change of pace. The Guinness is a perfect Guinness which takes a while to pour if you are new to this, but it is... More

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!
