Large group dinner with customers. Great service, with rotating draft beer chooses.

Casual laid-back atmosphere. great for families or business get together.

Small, but flavorful menu options . Traditional American fare with some nicely added flavor twists.

Delicious starters, best chicken tenders I have ever eaten. Don’t pass on them (Maple sriracha and Korean BBQ). San Mariano Tomato Bisque (with nduja salami). Extremely flavorful.

Flavorful mains as well. Group enjoyed the Steak Tips (mash:/bacon fat Brussels /Demi glaze).

Parking can be challenge but Devlin’s well worth the time.

We had a nice time at Devlin's and our server was very sweet and competent. The food was passable, but not as good as I remembered. We haven't been there for a while, so not sure whether there's a new chef or I just ordered the wrong thing.

Went there for my hubbby's birthday dinner . All good other than the beer was sooooooo overpriced. We go out 3 times per week and have never in our 55 55 years of life been
charged 9.50 for a beer . Can't go back due to this issue.

Went for evening on the patio. Great bartenders. Great drinks. Ok food. Beautiful patio setting. And then at 8 they had the WORST duo play bad music. Too loud. Couldn't sing. Cleared the place out. We lasted one set. When they came back we left. Use some judgement on your music selection.

Great food and great place. Service only could have improved if waitress was less annoying. She spoke very quickly in Italian, so some people may like that. I will definitely repeat

Went here with a a few friends on a Saturday night. Service was good :)
A lot of choices on the menu we had Oysters which were yum! Ceaser salad, this had way too much dressing, not so good! Also had the Fig, blue cheese... pizza, yum & the Salmon Pad Thai, this was good but not great!!
Will go back again for the Alfresco Dining which is very cool in the nice weather.

Good food, nice live jazz for Sunday brunch. Funky Bloody Mary bar but the Bloody Mary's themselves were a bit ordinary. Outside patio was nice on the sunny day we were there but staff weren't very friendly. Could be a nice place to hang out with friends if you live in the neighbourhood.

I really enjoyed Devlins. You can tell that each dish was plated thoughtfully. Everything from the beginning pickies of bread and hummus was delicious, all the way down the nutella pie. The menu is large and kind of all over the place which was great because it gave options, but also made it difficult for me to establish what kind of restaurant it was... Irish pub? classic american with a twist? I wasn't sure. But the quality was outstanding for the price.

Went for a quiet birthday celebration. The food was amazing with huge portions. Cocktails were also mixed well. Service was quick and friendly. Never got my waitresses name, but she was friendly. Love when staff works well together as well. I often dine alone and this was no exception and you really get to observe the surroundings. Every member of the staff was participating as part of team. This really added to a relaxing atmosphere for the customer. No one is showing their stress just allows the customer to relax and enjoy. Lighting was warm and friendly. Will be going back without a doubt!

Devlins is on my "return to list". The veggies are fresh and cooked to perfection. My dish was extremely well prepared and it was a delicious healthy meal. Nothing seemed pre-prepared/commercial and the price point was a steal.... I should not publicize it. It has a truly neighborhood feel with meals. I will be back again soon!

Devlin's is a go-to for my boyfriend and I because it's in our neighborhood and is consistently good. We're always surprised that it's not busy all the time -- the food is good and at a good value, and the drinks are always great.

All time favorite bar in Brighton. Love the menu (in any season), but the ambiance and staff are what keeps us coming back. New Years was a blast, champagne toast at midnight plus excellent service and DJ. Devlins truly sets the bar (pun intended) for quality dining experience in the area.

Went there for the Bloody Mary bar and brunch. Thoroughly enjoyed...but... Although I enjoyed the music, for the space it was too loud for a brunch and felt that for Two people having one drink each it was pretty pricey.

Wait staff was great and we will come back... Just not often!

I went out with my parents and partner for dinner on Sunday night. Everyone had a great meal. The korean style brussel sprouts were amazing, and our mains, which were Asian inspired were also very tasty and well thought out/presented. We didn't taste the cocktails, but they had a good selection of local craft beers on tap. I would recommend this place to anyone that likes to sample interesting food at a reasonable price.

Very good service and food from drinks to appetizer to dinner. First time, and will be back. The crab and avacado appetizer portion was generous for two people. Good wine list. Lobsta mac'n cheese abundant with flavor and lobster. Steak was terrific portion and flavor. All cooked to order and served hot. what more is there to ask for?
