My only gripe is that it was freezing inside the dining room, which was unpleasant for my two kids. I'm sure it was hot as hell in the kitchen, but it was nice outside - not too cold, not too hot, so we didn't have jackets/sweaters with us, and it was a bit crowded on the patio; more space inside....

Awesome review, thank you so much for taking the time to let everyone know about us!!! We just changed our chicken fingers to a better quality chicken and what I felt was a better breading. Keep a watch out for our new kids menu coming out soon!! More

This place has a genuine local brew pub feel. They serve authentic Irish food. It is a really cool place to hang out on St. Patrick's Day, of course, but also anytime you are in the mood for some Irish grub. They have a fantastic patio area to dine al fresco. We really enjoyed our experience and loved the food.

My husband and I went out to celebrate an early St Patty's Day. We were hoping to get some good Irish food and a beer. When we arrived there weren't too many people at the restaurant, mostly people at the bar. Overall we were disappointed in the food and the service. We hardly saw our waiter throughout the evening and... More

I am so sorry for your bad experience at Donovan's. It always makes me feel disheartened when the experience is so bad that a customer states that they would not return. St. Patrick's Day is obviously our biggest celebration of the year. There is no excuse for bad service or lackluster food, but as you can tell from review comments... More

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.
