I've been here several times. Each time the staff is attentive and accommodating. They have great hamburgers. The only drawback is that it's such a popular place that it gets very noisy as the night wears on. If you want a quiet atmosphere this is not the place -- other than around noon on a weekday. If you want a place that really starts to rock at night this is great.

Me and my husband tried Devlin's last week for dinner. My husband got steak tips and I have got Chicken Fettuccine. Both of our food was very good. I usually can not finish the whole plate so in the menu I had an option to choose a smaller size which was a perfect size dinner.I was just surprised that a fettuccine pasta had a tomato based sauce which I was expecting more white-creamy sauce. It was different but not bad.
Our server was really nice and checked us if we need anything couple times. We will be back again.

If you're in the area and looking for a place with casual fare and a terrific bar selection served in a neighborhood atmosphere with a touch of sophistication, Devlin's is for you.

Their Rhode Island style fried calamari ($10) is outstanding and cooked to perfection.

Like fish tacos? You'll be a happy camper with the crispy fish taco platter ($16) which is out of this world.

The Devlin burger ($14) is rich, flavorful, fresh and at a 1/2 pound, will not leave you hungry.

If you are in need of a comfort food fix, watch for their shepard's pie special: it will put a smile on your face.

Just writing this review is making me hungry!

Depending on when you visit parking, like elsewhere in the area, can be a challenge but it is definitely worth the effort.
