Devlin's is one of my favorite restaurants! I've always had fantastic service, and the food is to die for! I try something new every time because there are so many wonderful options to choose from. The vibe is perfect, the prices are reasonable, and the drinks and food are amazing! always eager to go back

We used to be regulars when living in Brighton. Had to come back for St Patrick's Day corned beef-great.
We also want to thank our young waitress who was so pleasant and sweet .
Great place!

Went for a later brunch. They had a couple guys playing music in the corner, but it was not overwhelming or loud music. Just enough to provide some atmosphere for the restaurant. Decent service for the place being full. Good food as always, would recommend for brunch, lunch or dinner.

We went to Saturday brunch as soon as they opened and could not have had a more perfect time! The French toast bites and truffle fries were fried to perfection. We ordered the chicken and red velvet waffles and Irish breakfast and although the dishes were on the pricey side, there was plenty to take home! Definetly recommend trying out their various brunch cocktails (especially the mimosas). I cannot emphasize how cozy and wonderful it was and the service was great too! Definitely a gem that more people need to check out!

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

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.

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!
