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!

We went to Rory Dolan’s for a business dinner and had a great time. The service was superb, and the food was great. Rory himself took the time to come introduce himself to the table and took great care of us. It was a great experience and we hope to return next time we’re in town.

Wonderful dinner with friends. Food, service, and ambiance were excellent. Tasty cod, salmon platter as well as calamari and crab cake.

The waitress was terrific.

Great place to catch up with friends and enjoy a delicious meal.

Rory Dolan's is a family favorite. It is a very reliable spot for lunch, dinner or a large family get-together. The service is always friendly and Rory makes it a point to stop by the table to say Hi! The food is always tasty and well prepared. My brother and I had burgers- he a cheeseburger and me a turkey burger. Both terrific with sweet potato fries on the side! We love Rory Dolan's!

This is the go-to place in McLean Ave. great food and drink options and a huge space. A little too loud for a conversation but a great place for a get-together, game or party.

The only restaurant to which I will happily drive from the suburbs to Manhattan, pick up my parents and then drive to Yonkers for! Consistent, always delicious and authentic, more than just good pub food, great turnover, super service. Rory himself is always friendly, and the lovely lady from Templenoe always makes it so special. She is a gem! Aside from my personal experience(love) for this place, I would recommend it to anyone looking for a great meal and a few drinks with family and friends!

Every time we’ve come here it has been great, which has been over 18 years. However, this time the quality of food was less than average and the service was not great. Very disappointing.

I had made a reservation for 6 people for Sunday, March 18. This reservation was for the day after St. Patrick's Day . The reservation was made through open table. Several days after making the reservation I stopped in to reserve a table on the main floor because my 92 year old mother in law has a difficult time getting around and uses a walker. The hostess at the time (Mary) wrote my name down in her book and my request. When we arrive at 5:45PM, a good 15 minutes before the reservation. I noticed that the hostess on that day had given away my table. She had told me they were too busy to hold any tables and escorted us to the back banquet room. This was very disappointing for several reasons. 1. If that is true then Mary should have said so and never pretend to make my request. 2. Regardless I had made a reservation through open table and requested a specific table that was prearranged in person. This should have been honored! Very disappointed! I'm not sure If I would return?

Terrible food! OMG! Do not go!! Fish was frozen and the filet mignon which was 30 bucks was like s piece of old pot roast. My friend never got her turnips and my potato was old. This is strictly a bar. Get drunk and don’t pay attention to what you are eating. Very sad because I once loved this place😢😭😭

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!!
