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

Spent the time to savour the really good food (Shepard Pie). This is really great food. A pub atmosphere that is quiet (sometimes). This is a place for sharing with friends. Service is outstanding. Ask for James Donovan the owner after your meal. This guy has a genuine interest in his customers.

Real good Irish style food and normal bar fair. Properly poured pints of the black stuff and a few good whiskey to pick from at the bar. Nice local pub yo hang out on the big patio with some friends and have a few drinks.

Always willing to give a place another try so maybe we will someday. The facility had a strange almost urine type smell when we entered which was kinda gross. Service was unenthusiastic by our waitress and I noticed other waitresses also seemed uninterested in being there that day. Food was OK. Had a generous enough portion of their "horse shoe"... More

I met some friends here for some liquid refreshment and food. Both were excellent. I ordered the fish sandwich and was happy that I did. The breading on the fish was crispy and tasty. Overall, a very pleasant evening.

I regret that I have only been here once. I ventured out one night to try somewhere new, and I like Irish bars. The service was awesome, and the food was great too. I really liked the atmosphere, great neighborhood bar feel. Being Irish, there are lots of potatoes on the menu, which makes it a carb filled meal, but... More

Went there because we had a groupon. Glad we did. I never knew it was there. 7 of us and we tried lots of different dishes. Very good. Will definitely go back.

Donovan's has been a fun place to stop in with our family and enjoy Sunday Brunch. The food is good Irish fare and the service is always friendly and helpful. The men iin our family love the Boxty's...meat, potatoes and cheese sauce. The Irish nachos are amazing.
