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

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

    No matter if 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, Our Friends, can enjoy Donovan’s full menu and creative to classic daily specials. Our well-stocked Tap Room area provides high top tables, as well as a newly crafted booth and updated full service table seating. When dinner service is complete on Friday and Saturday, join us on the main floor for live music from various talented local artists.
