We feel very fortunate to have gotten one last delicious dinner in before the ban on sit down restaurant dining. The decor was festive, the service attentive and efficient, and all our entrees were fabulous. The restaurant itself was immaculately clean. We’ll be back for sure as soon as the ban is over.

Unfortunately, we had to cancel our trip to Rory Dolan's this time. However, we have dined here many times over the past few decades. We are always served our meal as advertised, and authentic. The service is always very good. As for the ambiance, if you're looking for authentic Irish brogues, you will have come to the right place. It does get kind of loud around dinner time, but isn't that part of the charm of a true Irish Pub. Enjoy!

Our party of four all had different meals and we each agreed they were excellent which is really all you want in a restaurant! What makes this restaurant so special, to my mind, is the host himself! Rory makes the rounds and, genuinely, makes you feel special! 💚💛

Business lunch on a Friday -

My salad didn’t include the ingredients I ordered, the waitress was distracted, there were three of us and she neglected to add the third cutlery. My colleague had to request it. My coffee came in a chipped mug. I only realized afterwards. Our waitress didn’t provide spoons for our coffee. We ended up sharing a tablespoon that came with the cutlery. Overall service and food quality is sub par.

This is an Irish sports bar. The service is a little unpredictable. There is a huge menu and it’s a lively restaurant. The food is always good and plentiful.
I love when Rory himself comes to the table and to make sure everything is ok which has happened on the majority of times I have been to this restaurant.

As always the food and service was outstanding. Only issue was that my Open Table reservation for 8 people never made it to the front desk. This was for my Mom's wake on a Saturday so I knew they would be busy. The hostess said not to worry and got us seated right away!

"I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The potato-leek soup was amazing and the Bibb lettuce salad was refreshing. The table was split on the monkfish – one person thought it was great, but another felt that the tastes didn't quite mesh. Everyone loved the flat iron steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."

We enjoyed dining at Rory's. The evening was very special for us. My only problem was that the waiter was a bit too hasty. He was at the side watching our every move. He came and touch my plate to remove it before asking if I was done. I was a bit furious but I kind of shove it off. I was wondering if he wanted us to leave as soon as we took the last bite. Hopefully, my next experience is without fault.

A neighborhood staple. American fare that’s always good; waitstaff is attentive without being intrusive. While it has a sports bar feel, it’s a family hangout, too.

Enjoyed a drink at the lively bar scene & efficient bar staff before meeting our group of 15 in the dining area. Staff couldn’t be more welcoming and attentive. Food was well prepared and delivered in a timely manner. We were never rushed as we lingered over dessert and fellowship.

All the waiters and waitresses were very nice and sweet. Our waitress forgot to serve us a salad each. We realized this after our meal was over and saw other patron getting salad or soup. Otherwise, everything was great

The staff is always SUPER friendly and attentive, without being too invasive. Not to mention that (depending on how big your party is) I never wait too long for my food. I was hesitant to write a raving review because I don't want to further make public

My favorite spot (which is no hidden hole in the wall), but honestly, this place NEEDS to be on your bucket list.

I never realized it was not just a bar.
The food is amazing.

The owner is very nice and personable. He helped accommodate our sales meeting by setting up a private area where we would not be bothered and could focus on our meeting. The service and food was excellent. Great ambiance and very CLEAN! Highly recommend.

When we weren't ready to place our order, the waitress actually rolled her eyes! Really put a damper on the experience. By the way, who needs a bathroom attendant in 2019? They are just there to get a tip. It's archaic. The food was mediocre. Our shepherd's pie was kind of tasteless and mushy, and the corned beef (and cabbage) was machine sliced and look like cold cuts placed on top of shredded vegetables. The taste was okay, but it really wasn't that pleasant to look at.

Loved the bar area! Bartenders very attentive for a Friday night. It’s nice to have so many choices of good beer on tap. The cider was excellent too. Dinner was very good. Although I think next time we will stay in the bar area for food. The white tablecloths made it feel a little too formal for an Irish pub/restaurant. The server was very nice. The chicken pie and fish and chips were excellent! Chicken was nice because it wasn’t drowned in sauce. Did feel like there were a few too many tables squished in the dining area. But overall loved this place and will definitely be back.

We always enjoy our visit to Rory Dolan's. The food is reliably tasty and the ambiance friendly. On our last visit, there was a very long wait before our main courses were brought out, but, as always, it was worth the wait. We will be back!
