Ok irish food and the beer is cold. The service is average to poor. The bar tender had an attitude. Don't go to eat after 8 pm cause the crowd becomes rowdy and it ends up being more of a bar than a restaurant.

This is a wonderful neighborhood Irish Pub that just has a relaxed feel. The wait staff are friendly and helpful. Now, having said that this is not a 7 course meal type Pub. Mostly all they have are cold and hot sandwiches but let me say this they are some of the best sandwiches around. The 5 alarm chili is... More

We each ordered a beer on tap and all the beer on tap were not cold... Almost (but not quite) room temperature. My fiancé and I both ordered the 1/2 portion of the roast beef sandwich (which is literally 1/2 of a hamburger bun bought at a grocery store). There was plenty of meat on the sandwich, but for almost... More

I have had the garbage truck pizza twice. It is awesome! I ate way too much because it is so good! I had heard great things about their sandwiches and salads and can't wait to go back and try them.

Eat at Dunaways about every other month. The sandwiches are outstanding and the beer is always cold. They always put a ton of meat on the sandwiches. If you like it hot, get a bowl of chili. Can't be beat.

While staying in Troy and tiring of the Chain Restaurant experience we decided to cruise the town looking for local fare. We saw Dunaway's ( how could you miss that large sign) and asked the hotel staff about the food there. The staff gave Dunaway's high praise and mentioned that it was a "pub style" restaurant and served great sandwiches... More

We went in between activities with a group of 20 and they were very accommodating. We even helped out the Waitress with the waters for everyone so they could get things done quickly. Food was good and it was what I expected for a quick lunch and a place to get out of the heat. Couple of us had the... More

Always good food! This is NOT bar food slop. I'm still amazed how everything they make is so good. Great eating inside or on the deck!

Wow what a great find. Friendly staff...owners Sandy and Brenda are a delight if they're there and they usually are. Best Roast Beef sandwich you'll find. Pizza is awesome too. Very good menu, wish I could have gone back and tried more.

I was staying in Troy for business, so I checked Trip advisor for a restaurant & found Dunaways Beef and Ale. It is very much the corner pub with a lot of memorabilia on the walls. The server recommended the pastrami but I passed on the Russian dressing and cole slaw on the sandwich. I found the meat a little... More
