On the way home from New York City we stopped in for the early bird special good selection service was very good. We had shepherd's pie which was good the chicken pot pie was excellent. Great for very traditional Irish Comfort Foods.

Nice Irish pub with traditional Irish dishes and beers. A bit loud in the bar area. We had a group of 20 and were seated in the large banquet room. Perfect for a large group and quieter than the main room. Wheel chair accessible in both rooms. Food was good, nothing to rave about, but good. Service was good and staff was friendly and helpful.

We enjoyed the gathering very much. The staff was excellent. They were very gracious about our party not being complete. Coming from three states to meet we were not all there but the sat us anyway. We enjoyed the music in the background and everyone had choices on the menu. Good place to meet and enjoy and linger. Thank you Rory for stopping at the table and thanking us for coming. Merry Christmas!!

We were out to dinner (4) people. We had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Rory Dolan himself who was gracious and came to the table twice to make sure everything was going well. The decor was homey and had beautiful Waterford crystal accent pieces everuwhere! We all loved the food, especially the steak and Shepherd's pie! It is noisy there, but we sat in the back where it was a bit easier to talk to each other. We are definitely going back soon!

Rory's is always consistently good in the quality of it's dishes, and just as much so with it's service, ambience, and value. I've always had a very pleasing meal and experience.

Our family gathered to celebrate our mother/grandmother/great-grandmother's 88th birthday. They easily accommodated our needs from the 1-year old to the 88-year old. The waitress was pleasant and efficient. Our food was brought out in a very reasonable time. Food choices included the pancakes, the pot pie, and a turkey and a veggie burger. Everyone was pleased with their choices. Rory Dolan's is a family favorite and we return here for many special occasions as well weekday dining, which is always delicious and satisfying.

The best service and Rory Dolan, the owner, came by and asked if all was okay and if there is anything we needed. He has done this every time we have been there. It was my son's birthday and he bought us all a drink, very, very, nice of him.
The best place to have fun, good music, friends and food.
This establishment is a 5 star rating for us.

Did not have my reservation upon arrival? Menu no longer corresponds to restaurant's website so it should be updated. We were celebrating our anniversary and were looking forward to the brunch including a drink, however that only now applies to Sunday's which does not match website. Food has been better in the past.

We had such a great time at Rory Dolans. The service was excellent, kudos to Kevin, we will request his section every time we go back! He was great. The owner came by and said hello, and even gave us a couple of free mugs. Highly recommend. And looking forward to going back and bringing my mother, it's an excellent Irish Pub and she has longed for a good one since our favorite closed!

Great Place for lunch or dinner. Beautiful in the Irish bar tradition. Wonderful service and great food. Cannot go wrong with many menus choices. A bit noisy but one would expect anything less at a good Irish bar. If you are looking for good eats and nice decor as far as bars go can't go wrong.

Been here many times and always order the burgers but this time we totally changed it up. One surf and turf and one shrimp w/angel hair pasta. Both were delicious for bar food. Rory stopped by our table to say hello which is a nice touch. Can't complain about this business what-so-ever!
