Great Service – I go to Devlin's nearly every weekend and find the atmosphere is always good.
The service has always been excellent and the food is great. I was on the patio last weekend for drinks and appetisers. I will always frequent this efficient upbeat restaurant!
Is this really Brighton?? – After discovering Devlin's last summer, I have not been able to stay away! It's a great place to chill out after a long day at work, bring friends, bring a date, etc.
Their pizza is the best; crispy, thin crust, just the right amount of cheese and toppings. Yum! Also, the salmon is delicious! I have copied it at home several times since it appeared on the new-ish summer menu.
The patio is fantastic, too. It's a nice little escape from the city. There is even a bar!!! It's great to be able to sit outside and have a drink or two at the bar and not have to order food.
So, if you haven't already been there, I suggest you go check it out. You will be pleasantly surprised at what you find.
Eh – I dont know what to say. It seems spot on or a complete miss. Not going to knock them for one off night but when its good its good when its bad its really bad.
Great food, Excellent environment – Devlins Bar and Bistro offers more than your average fare and drab dining room tablecloths. This classic American bistro has a contemporary twist that has a way of pleasing even the most stubborn taste buds. The European-style patio creates a romantic ambience with a hint of elegance. If you?re looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, enjoy a night out at Devlins.
Brunch Heaven – Oh my God! Whoever has been keeping this place a secret should be shot. Went for brunch here with my dad on Sunday morning and it was AMAZING. Got the most amazing Irish breakfast. My dad had some egg benny thing not sure of the name but it tasted like heaven. And we had the most delicious Bloody Marys ever. (They made morning drinking seem even bolder!!) The only pity was that the patio wasn't open due to the weather. But I intend to be back!
Awesome food and drinks!! Trivia with a twist. – I am a proffesional who lives in Boston and loves to eat out! I also love trivia but hate the usually sports bar trivia blah. I finally found a tuesday night place that I can bring friends and have some fun. I enjoy going to nice places with good food, friendly staff, and prices that don't hurt the wallet, but I hate throwing the my money away on cheap pub grub. Devlins is a breath of fresh air from the norm. I feel comfortable meeting friend or dates for dinner or drinks there and like to try different apps and dinners on the menu, the steak I had the other night was awesome and love this spicy chicken pasta dish, (I forget the name) but it rules! The servers were on the ball and were attentive and cool.
Best Patio in Boston – I totally love this place. If you havent been you should really check it out. Great food, great ambiance, and the patio out back is something to experience. I think there may be more seating outside than in, and it looks like they are in the final stages of building a full bar out there. Sunday's are especially cool because they offer a incredible brunch, and they have a live jazz band out on the patio. You need to experience Devlin's for yourself. I'm a huge fan, and a regular there. See you on the patio!!
Best Pasta and Best Atmosphere – I LOVE Devlin's! I eat there all the time (more since the patio opened) and absolutely love it!! The staff is super friendly, the food is super fresh and delicious, and the ambiance is SUPER ;) I come with a friend or a group and they are always very accomodating and efficient.
Don't go to the beer Garden...they have a terrible beer selection, the food is nasty and they offer the WORST SERVICE EVER!!! Devlin's is the place to be in Brighton.
Great service and food – My friends and I had such a good time here. Our waitress was really friendly and attentive, and we all really enjoyed our meals. I ordered the short rib special which was fantastic! We had been there before to sit on the patio and will definitely be back. Devlin's is one of our favorities!
Great Restaurant, Unfriendly Waitress – I love this restaurant...the food, decor, and outdoor patio, but there is one waitress who has served me on numerous occasions and she's always miserable!!!!! She rarely smiles, doesn't like to be asked questions, and is pushy about buying drinks. My friends and I have always tipped her well anyway, we're never too demanding or annoying, so this unfriendly service is undeserved. I have never experienced such a cold, unfriendly server and find it very unprofessional. We love eating out here but when she's our waitress, her bad attitude spoils our night. All of the other waitresses we've had have been personable, however.
