"I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The potato-leek soup was amazing and the Bibb lettuce salad was refreshing. The table was split on the monkfish – one person thought it was great, but another felt that the tastes didn't quite mesh. Everyone loved the flat iron steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."

We enjoyed dining at Rory's. The evening was very special for us. My only problem was that the waiter was a bit too hasty. He was at the side watching our every move. He came and touch my plate to remove it before asking if I was done. I was a bit furious but I kind of shove it off. I was wondering if he wanted us to leave as soon as we took the last bite. Hopefully, my next experience is without fault.

A neighborhood staple. American fare that’s always good; waitstaff is attentive without being intrusive. While it has a sports bar feel, it’s a family hangout, too.

Rory’s has great food, is very family-friendly and accommodating to all ages, and is nicely priced for what you get. Nice for brunch, great for a late-night drink. Just an overall lovely establishment!

Enjoyed a drink at the lively bar scene & efficient bar staff before meeting our group of 15 in the dining area. Staff couldn’t be more welcoming and attentive. Food was well prepared and delivered in a timely manner. We were never rushed as we lingered over dessert and fellowship.

All the waiters and waitresses were very nice and sweet. Our waitress forgot to serve us a salad each. We realized this after our meal was over and saw other patron getting salad or soup. Otherwise, everything was great

The staff is always SUPER friendly and attentive, without being too invasive. Not to mention that (depending on how big your party is) I never wait too long for my food. I was hesitant to write a raving review because I don't want to further make public

My favorite spot (which is no hidden hole in the wall), but honestly, this place NEEDS to be on your bucket list.

I never realized it was not just a bar.
The food is amazing.

The owner is very nice and personable. He helped accommodate our sales meeting by setting up a private area where we would not be bothered and could focus on our meeting. The service and food was excellent. Great ambiance and very CLEAN! Highly recommend.

When we weren't ready to place our order, the waitress actually rolled her eyes! Really put a damper on the experience. By the way, who needs a bathroom attendant in 2019? They are just there to get a tip. It's archaic. The food was mediocre. Our shepherd's pie was kind of tasteless and mushy, and the corned beef (and cabbage) was machine sliced and look like cold cuts placed on top of shredded vegetables. The taste was okay, but it really wasn't that pleasant to look at.

Loved the bar area! Bartenders very attentive for a Friday night. It’s nice to have so many choices of good beer on tap. The cider was excellent too. Dinner was very good. Although I think next time we will stay in the bar area for food. The white tablecloths made it feel a little too formal for an Irish pub/restaurant. The server was very nice. The chicken pie and fish and chips were excellent! Chicken was nice because it wasn’t drowned in sauce. Did feel like there were a few too many tables squished in the dining area. But overall loved this place and will definitely be back.

We always enjoy our visit to Rory Dolan's. The food is reliably tasty and the ambiance friendly. On our last visit, there was a very long wait before our main courses were brought out, but, as always, it was worth the wait. We will be back!

We went to Rory Dolan’s for a business dinner and had a great time. The service was superb, and the food was great. Rory himself took the time to come introduce himself to the table and took great care of us. It was a great experience and we hope to return next time we’re in town.

Rory Dolan's is a family favorite. It is a very reliable spot for lunch, dinner or a large family get-together. The service is always friendly and Rory makes it a point to stop by the table to say Hi! The food is always tasty and well prepared. My brother and I had burgers- he a cheeseburger and me a turkey burger. Both terrific with sweet potato fries on the side! We love Rory Dolan's!

This is the go-to place in McLean Ave. great food and drink options and a huge space. A little too loud for a conversation but a great place for a get-together, game or party.

The only restaurant to which I will happily drive from the suburbs to Manhattan, pick up my parents and then drive to Yonkers for! Consistent, always delicious and authentic, more than just good pub food, great turnover, super service. Rory himself is always friendly, and the lovely lady from Templenoe always makes it so special. She is a gem! Aside from my personal experience(love) for this place, I would recommend it to anyone looking for a great meal and a few drinks with family and friends!

Every time we’ve come here it has been great, which has been over 18 years. However, this time the quality of food was less than average and the service was not great. Very disappointing.
