Definitely worth a try if you've never been before, and definitely worth a revisit if you have. Never had a bad meal there! The food is always delicious.

A little hard to find--in back of the complex--but worth the search. Close enough to the green to park and have dinner before the Thursday jazz concerts.

Don't eat upstairs! There's a light that flashes intermittently that literally made me nauseous. Only one bartender (that poor guy) to wait on 30+ people for food and drink at a Paint Nite event.

The bartender Robby is the best. My drink tasted like the wrong drink (he didn't make it), he saw that I didn't like it and he made me another one without any question. My food was great too.

Our server was very personable & attentive. My husband ordered the hamburger with egg, he really enjoyed it. I ordered the almond chicken salad. I also enjoyed my meal the only negative was that the chicken had too much fat. However, we will be back!

From Our Editors

Owner and executive chef Greg Bozzi named his restaurant after the 1963 John Wayne movie, Donovan’s Reef. Bozzi fire-grills steaks and bakes lobster pies for the dinner rush and has an outdoor seating patio area. He tops burgers with fried onions rings and tosses crab meat and littleneck clams into bowls of marinara-covered linguine. Several nights a week, the eatery hosts live musical acts Thursday through Saturday nights, trivia contests on Wednesdays, and PaintNite on Tuesday evenings. Donovan’s Reef is also a certified green restaurant, with such eco-friendly aspects as energy-efficient lighting, a full-scale recycling program, and composting their food waste.
