My husband and I have had for dinner: 1. Fish with mashed potatoes for $28.50: 3 tiny pieces of fish and potatoes are so much overpriced - was not happy. 2. Steak, chips and eggs for $27.50 - was very average. Also when the waitress asked my husband if he wanted mushroom sauce she didn't mention that it would cost... More

We were visiting from the US and found Doolan Brothers on a slow day. The staff here was super cool and put on the American college football championship game for us when nonr of the other customers were interested. Also served great Calamari

Booked a table for 7 adults for tea and it was good. The service was prompt and friendly though it was midweek and not that busy. The meals arrived hot and on time. The Guinness pie and Beef wellington were spot on as were the steaks and salads

Pub fare in a faux Irish pub environment. Avoid the food, but if you want to watch sports or catch up with friends who want a super casual pub style venue, it's ok.

We were there for lunch on a weekday and had a burger (which for some extent tastes like burned meat) and chicken wings which was ok but their sauces was good. Comparing the food you get, the price was expensive.

Went on a Saturday night - had the steak which was nice although the pork schnitzel was very deep fat fried. Typical pub grub - not going to set the world on fire but not that bad either.

Great pub fare. Average prices. Now if only the bartender could serve with a smile, this place would do a lot better. The cute wait staff did make up for the surly barman though.
