Not many restaurants to choose from around here, so this fits the need if you want bar food. Staff is hit or miss - sometimes friendly, sometimes not.

Every visit to St Aug. area must include a stop at Donovan's for a munch & a beer, at the very least! Staff is always friendly, welcoming and efficient. Food is good and drinks are also.

I visited during a weekday at lunch time. The restaurant was not busy when I arrived but by the time I left was quickly filling up! I sat at the bar and ordered the Fish and Chips. I thought they were delicious and piping hot/fresh. There were several regulars also sitting at the bar and it appears that is their... More

My husband and I have had take-out from here before and it was really good. Yesterday we visited the restaurant and the atmosphere is very casual. It's your typical restaurant and bar, but the food is so good. I had the beer-battered jumbo shrimp and it was some of the best shrimp I've had throughout my vacation. My husband had... More

I have been to Donovan's three times hoping that the food would be better but each time it disappoints. How do you mess up a BLT? Or a Shepard's pie? Irish pub food is supposed to be simple and taste fresh. Every thing tastes over done and dry. They can't even pour a proper pint of Guinness. Go some where... More

Been here several times. Every time friendly waitress's, great service. Irish Nachos - YUM!! Also tried Dublin Cheese Steak, O'Paddy Melt - Loved them both and will go for either again. Make sure you have a cold pint with whatever you order. It's just a nice stop regardless of where you are going.

Came for dinner upon arrival to town. I just wanted something quick and easy. We both ordered Rubens. I ordered an order of fries too along with my included side of slaw. I felt the food was OK but it was not cheap and it was not the best ruben ever by a long shot. I guess that's what I... More

We go there often and it's a nice Irish place to go. I really enjoy their fish wrap but it's all good. I have had about everything on heir menu and I like the steak fries they serve. A popular items is their fish and chips but if you order a full serving be sure your hungry!!!
