  • Donovan’s Reef Restaurant is a warm and inviting American grille located in the historic Branford Lock Works building in Branford center.

    Donovan’s Reef has been operating out of this location for over twenty years; the restaurant has the perfect combination of food, drink, and fun- in a unique family atmosphere.

    Whether it is a quiet lunch for two any day of the week, a relaxing Happy Hour Monday to Friday, dinner with that special someone, or a night out with friends- Donovan’s Reef is the place to be.

    No matter whether you spend your time at Donovan’s Reef in the main dining room or in the unique loft dining area on Friday and Saturday evenings, you can enjoy Donovan’s full menu and daily specials. Our well-stocked Tap Room area also provides table seating and offers the full menu. When dinner service is complete on Friday and Saturday, join us on the main floor for live music from various talented local artists.

    Donovan’s Reef can also be reserved for any special occasion for parties of 30 to 100 or, if you prefer, we will gladly provide our catering services at your location as well!
