“Great old time Irish Joint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

This is the type of place, I wish we had where I live. Food was great, the wait staff, both from Ireland were funny as can be. The bar was like you been coming for years and everybody knew you & the family. I been to Ireland a number of times and Donovan's Pub would fit right into any good Irish street.

You can eat in the bar, or the back room. But those who know, eat in the rooms behind the bar. They are like you are eating in a grand estate in Ireland.

I live about 40 miles away an anytime we are in the area, this is where we eat.

“Great food at a reasonable price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

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!

“Good place to meet your future spouse”

I met my wife through a personal ad, and this was the place we first met. Over 25 years ago! Standard pub. I don't remember anything else!
