Everything was delicious. We could have shared our meals. The Linguine with Shrimp was extremely delicious. The best part of our meal was the Bread Pudding. Save room! The atmosphere was adorable and the servers were great. We were very happy to have happened upon Bridget Dolan's Pub.

As we were planing to be in Elk late afternoon and didn't want to drive to Mendocino for dinner, we searched for a restaurant closer to Elk - not much to choose from. Based on previous reviews, we made a 5:30 reservation for Bridget Dolan's Pub. Well, reservations were NOT needed at that time of day (hopefully maybe later?) as... More

The food was very good and well presented---a surprise since the menu sounds rather bland and our expectations were not high. They definitely need to jazz up the menu descriptions. The beet salad was beautiful, the seafood chowder in a bread bowl included crab, and the fish tacos included 2 large pieces of fresh fish. If you are staying at... More

The food at this place was amazing! I like my pubs dimly lit with wood and brass and metal booze signs as far as the eye can see, so for me to consider this place a pub was a stretch. More like a crisp white 4 star type place. The servers wore white shirts and aprons, and everything was very...well... More

We ate there two nights in a row. I had two different salads and desserts. Both were generous in portion and delicious. You should definitely share the dessert, they are massive.

We stopped in noting it appeared to be the only game in Elk. The service was great as was the food. The seafood chowder was served in a bread bowl with toasted cheese on the inside of the lid. The beet salad was very fresh and tasty.

We had a wonderful dinner here. Though it says pub food, we had the specials of veggie risotto and short ribs. Both excellent. They also have local wines on the menu. Excellent service too!
