I had the chicken and donuts. The donuts were great but the chicken was not very good. It just seemed like it was poor quality chicken.

I've been to Devlin's a few times since moving to Brighton and it never fails to disappoint! I brought a friend here for brunch on Sunday morning. Our table was ready for us when we arrived and the service was outstanding. And their food is to die for! I got the eggs benedict while my friend got the smoked salmon, goat cheese and avocado omelet and we could not stop raving about it! Their drinks are great too! Would highly recommend to anyone in the area!

Unique dishes that change regularly and delicious cocktails. Good sangria. Small enough to feel cozy and also classy. Outdoor patio is great in the summer months.

Cozy, quiet restaurant and perfect for having a conversation, especially you get a booth. The waiter was wonderful and the food was delicious. Plenty of great options, the waiter helped us narrow down all the choices.

Tried some things off the new menu. They sounded quite good and the variety is interesting as always. Unfortunately the Buffalo ravioli or not quite as good as they sounded. The kale salad with it was delicious, but the Buffalo ravioli were dried out and a little hard. Could have been better! My friend also got the burrito bowl and it was just a mediocre in presentation and nothing special. Service and Ambiance were good!

The food here is DELICIOUS! We had street corn covered in queso & cool ranch Doritos!! Yes, you read that correctly! So tasty! Our server was attentive. Decent beer list & great cocktails too. The fried chicken sand was amazing, and so are their onion rings!! Mac n Cheese was all I ever wanted. We sat at a rounded booth overlooking the restaurant which was really cool. Would def dine here again when in Boston!

Good neighborhood spot. Seemed to be more people eating and drinking at the bar than the tables. Very noisy inside. Took a while for server to come over, but once we got going she was very attentive. Nice menu. Food very good.

Ordered the blackened ahi tuna with charred romaine, heirloom tomatoes and blue cheese. For the price - a big disappointment. The only part of the dish that came as described was the blue cheese. The tuna was not blackened but had a dry crumby crust and was over-cooked/dry. The tomatoes appeared to be standard grape variety and the romaine was cool and crunchy with just a hint of char on the tip. Fish tacos were just ok and the heirloom tomato salad w/burrata had small grape tomatoes not large heirloom. Beer selection was good and waitress was nice.

I recommend a seat on the patio; it is just lovely. This is a combination restaurant-bar with a lively vibe in the bar and a quieter vibe in the indoor restaurant. The patio is lively as well. The food is very good; they have a seasonal menu and nightly specials.

Second time here. Came again because the patio is great, the food very good, waitresses (both visits) were very nice and the cost is most reasonable. First visit I ordered ravioli (yummy) second visit had roasted cauliflower appetizer which I loved, and caesar salad with chicken....also good.

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!

Great place for good food in relaxed atmosphere. Good selection of food with vegetarian "bowls" and noodles with tofu for healthy eaters. Also kids love the burger and Korean chicken tenders.

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.
