I had no idea what I was getting myself into in May! I was in for a treat Dolans is a good place for friends, drinks and a good ol'.time. The only negative thing I can say is it's over priced.

They are always friendly here and Rory walks around and chats people up. Drinks are good and food is homey and plenty to eat.

My family and I have been going to Rory Dolans since it open! Love the servers there, all come by for visit and a chat, they know us by name! The food is good, even the non-traditional Irish offerings. The Guinness is the freshest in the city and is always perfect! You have to go here and enjoy the restaurant!

Been going to Rory Dolans for at least 10 years now. Friendliest best bartenders in Yonkers . High quality bar food and excellent drinks. I'll continue to frequent this place as long as it's here. We used to joke that it was my living room

If you are in a rush...don't come for lunch. The food, when it finally arrived was tasty and in large portions but it took a while. (the restaurant was far from full) Parking was also hard as they closed their lot for a party.

Dinner on Saturday evening with my husband while visiting New York. I would suggest reservations. It seems like lots of locals frequent the restaurant/bar. All staff was great and they were all very attentive and busy. Ribeye special was good, great flavor a little over cooked but tender, steamed veggies were mushy but had flavor. Deserts looked great but had... More
