This is one of our favorite spots to meet folks and enjoy the evening. The food is delicious especially the fried scallops and Rueben sandwiches. The entainers are always pleasant frequently with sing along Irish music

I live in Westfield so don't get to this part of Springfield that often but a friend told me to go to Donovan's. It's attached to a mall but has a separate entrance, being a typical pub we felt at home right away. Ordered some drinks and my wife and I both got house made corned beef on dark rye... More

We decided to go for lunch while my hubby was getting his truck fixed across the street. What a great decision that was.

This is only the second highest price for a 20 Oz BBC I've paid. Sorry, if you're gonna give me a show, that's one thing, but we were there early, before the "entertainment" came on for dinner. Only 9 of us with a pretty substantial bill. Donovan's is nothing special. "Outdoor seating overlooks the parking lot with fumes. the bar... More

Returned to hear Freddie Marion & Dan Kane again. Great music, good food reasonably priced. Corned Beef sandwich is excellent & the Scallop Dinner is delicious. Frozen drink special was Peach Mango Daiquiri. It made a great dessert! We'll be back.

Go often to listen to Irish music and have drinks and pub food. Always a great time especially on Saturday evenings. Place is very busy around the high holy days ( St. Patrick's week for you non- Irish). Great fish and chips and sandwiches along with Irish tacos.

Excellent entertainment. Went to hear Freddie Marion, one of our favorite entertainers, sing. Corned Beef sandwich was excellent, as was the Reuben. We plan to return.

My wife an I have always enjoyed eating here as the food is excellent! However, on our last three visits, which were during the mid to late afternoon, we have had very sloppy service. While the food was still good, our server was slow to respond to us and we observed her constantly buying scratch tickets from a machine outside... More
