Great fish and chips. I also had three peach cobbler for dessert and it was the best dessert I have ever eaten. We will make this a place we will visit again.

We went for lunch and enjoyed our meal but the waitress most definitely did not want to be there! If she smiled her face would have cracked! The restaurant is pretty dark and the decor is heavy! This maybe a better place for dinner and drinks than lunch! All in all did not really enjoy the experience!

Donavan's has surpassed the test of time and has developed a nice local following thanks in part to its great selection of drinks, including beers on tap, delicious food items including Irish cuisine obviously, and very friendly bartenders and wait staff. Drop in if in the vicinity.

Excellent lunch. Good value for the money spent. Eat inside but nice patio area that we may try next time.

Had the fish and chips and was disappointed. The fish did not have a crispy batter and the fries were tasteless. Frankly I had better fish and chips at Captain D's. What was good were their onion rings. Big round rings in a nice batter.

I am extremely sorry that you did not have a better experience at Donovan's. We normally have better reviews for our fish and chips. Ill keep a watch out and see if everyone is being consistent in the cook time. We use our own seasoning which includes old bay on the fries. Again, I'm not sure what happened. Thank you... More

There is nothing fancy or particularly special about Donovan's, but if you want a good pub-style meal at a fair price, along with a good beer, you'll be happy. Service is friendly and responsive, and the environment is positive.

When I saw on the map that Donovan's was in a strip mall, I wasn't sure what to make of that, but as soon as I drove up to the place, it was obvious that they took their "Irish Pub" feel very seriously. Their outdoor seating stretches right out to the parking lot and their indoor area is classic dark... More
