Irish egg rolls are new to us, but tasty Rueben-like and deep fried, they're delicious. Paired with Smithwick's draft and Magners cider they make a meal. We added spinach artichoke dip and were all set! Service by Travis was very good - a fine Irish experience.

We expected good things based on several review sources, but Doherty's far exceeded our expectations. The salad dressings are made on site and provide an interesting and improved take on what you might expect - the blue cheese was very flavorful but not heavy. We had the fish and chips and the salmon BLT (without the bacon) and both were excellent. I don't know how we found room for dessert, but the chocolate mousse was awesome. Our server was attentive and friendly. The atmosphere is really nice with a choice of bar, bar tabletop and dining room/booth seating. The only "less than perfect" part of our experience was that there is a terrible draft at the booth closest to the dining room entrance. We had to keep our jackets over our shoulders but someone did turn the heat up during our meal. Even though this is a little bit of a drive for us, we look forward to going again and exploring their menu further.

Went here on a Saturday night for a late bite with five of my girlfriends. The place was packed but we were able to get a very large booth and were seated right away. We were informed that they would be serving from the bar menu only. No problem there as there was an ample amount to choose from for every taste.

All of us ordered drinks ranging from wine to beer to martinis. Everyone enjoyed their beverages. The consensus around the table was that the food was very good. I enjoyed a grilled chicken smothered in buffalo sauce with a side of their delicious homemade chips. The girls ordered brisket sandwiches, a burger, an order of spinach artichoke dip and chocolate mousse. Everyone enjoyed what they had.

They had a band playing (The Flatliners) who were excellent! The music, however, as expected was extremely loud making it a bit difficult to communicate with our server. A little tip here - I thought pretty quickly and pulled out my sticky pad and a pen and had everyone write down their orders to pass to the server when it came time to take each person's order. She was very happy about this and the order was taken very quickly and the food came out quickly, hot and fresh.

The atmosphere here was terrific from the lighting to the decor to the patrons. It was a bit difficult to find on the GPS because it's tucked away in a strip mall as some others have posted and at first, my GPS had me circling the lot across the street.

I would definitely recommend going here for a romantic night out or on a night out on the town with your friends. If you go on a Saturday after 10:00 p.m. though, don't expect to do much talking unless the band takes a break!

There is outside seating and plenty of parking.

We will definitely be returning.

I love this place, its definitely my local pub! Great food and amazing service. The fish tacos are amazing, along with their brisket nachos, shrimp puppies and fish and chips! Their brunch on Sunday is amazing, the french toast is to die for! Everything I have ever eaten here has been delicious and the servers are awesome and always have a smile on their face!
