“3 for bar and 1 for my food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

Very full bar/restaurant. Nicely decorated...loads of televisions all around the place, even in the dining room. The bar is nice and seems to draw a huge mixed age crowd. The outside area is well done, and good for a beer or dinner.

Now to the dinner...that is where my review goes down. I would give 1 for food based on my dinner. It took about 30 minutes to order and a good 45 for the dinner to come. I ordered a cheeseburger and fries. It was the worst burger I've had since I was in Spain years ago. Didn't even taste like meat. I ate the fries and let the men at my table taste the burger and they all agreed it was gross. I told the waitress it was gross and she said she never hears that.... The guys had steaks and said they were tender.

There was an attendant in the ladies room that was very nice and they have items like hair spray and spritz available for a tip.

There was music in the 'banquet area' but when we went to check it out, it was $25 per person to go listen!!!! Check the price of admission before going to hear a band....never would have expected that in Yonkers. If we go again....it will be for drinks and the company.

“Rory's is a fun spot.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

You can get anything you want at Rory Dolans. He has a great bar with about 100 different beers to select from. Of course if you want something stronger, the bartenders will take care of that. Food wise you can get anything from bar grub to fish to steak, all of which are good. Feel like a burger, they are very good too. Service is very good too.

“Great food, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

I have been here many times and I always enjoyed the food. The service is good and the atmosphere is nice as well. There is rarely a long wait for a table and with the exception of it being a holiday, I've always been seated right away. The staff are very efficient and friendly.

“Not disappointed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

You don't expect great food in an Irish neighborhood pub but our experience was quite unexpected. Besides the authentic Irish Pub atmosphere, the food was great. Fillet mignon done perfectly and the rib eye special came sizzling to the table. The service was prompt and friendly. If you want a little bit of Ireland right here in Westchester, you will not be disappointed!
