IF you enjoy Fish & Chips, this restaurant is hard to beat. On this date fresh green beans were served with this entrée so overall for the cost it was a great meal and for most probably an opportunity to enjoy it the next day....More

Visited with the wife and had some very delicious Gaelic steak medallions that were cooked perfectly. Give it a try, if my dish was any indication you will like whatever you have.

I go in about every 2 weeks and order their Shepherd's Pie (2) to go! Have been there for dinner and live music. Great atmosphere and service. All their food has been delicious!

We took a trip to Ireland a few years back and having dinner at Doherty's brings back all the great memories of that trip. The food is simple and delicious. The service is always warm and friendly. It's just comfortable.

Doherty's is a friendly, local pub. The food, however, is well beyond pub food. They make the best salad I have ever had. The service is always friendly and efficient.

Fairly authentic food with all of my favorites (e.g., fish & chips, boxties, shepard's pie) great beer selection and very congenial staff. It's popular so make a reservation, or get there early (even on week nights), or relax and drink a beer while you wait....More
