If you're looking for a warm,inviting local restaurant; this is the place. Service is warm and friendly. The food is always good,not sophisticated but good basic fare. The atmosphere is warm but can get a little hectic at peak periods

Donovan's is an old-school Irish bar that hasn't changed much in recent decades. (That being said, it's in Woodside, the diversity capital of the world, and everybody is welcome there.) One constant over the years is the hamburger: every year it's ranked among the best...More
