It's a nice comfy spot with decent food. I've had the burger, which isn't quite Donovan's but isn't bad at all. I've also had a pretty nice piece of salmon and some OK fish and chips. But it's really a slightly upscale Irish bar (although not so upscale that you can't see the Mets game on half a dozen TVs) and not a destination for food.
The food is good there. Basic Irish pub fare. I really like their steak sandwich. No complaints about the food, but the service is slow. Takes forever to get your order, even if there is no one in there.
I concur with both Al and Deborah. Definitely not an eating destination by any stretch, but they do a good job with Irish pub fare (burger, steak sandwich, fish and chips, etc; have not tried the breakfast or the more gastro-pubby fare), and more importantly pull a good Guinness. A decent place to have a drink, but the big square bar in the dead center of the place makes it feel a bit claustrophobic after a while.
Donovan's: For their famous and brilliant burger, good stuffed clams and French Onion soup, other fare is dodgy. Older crowd.
Cuckoo's Nest: Somewhat better pub food than S&S, they also keep the kitchen open later and have (IMO) more congenial ambiance.
I've heard McGuires has good food as well. The Nest has good atmosphere, but I don't really care for their food, outside of the brunch on the weekends (11-3). I've only eaten there a couple of times but once the chicken tenders were bone dry and next time I think I ordered a burger and the bun was soaked with grease. I cannot say enough good things about the breakfast, though.
The Nest also has a much better bar set up than S&S. When it 's nice out, they open up the whole front of the place so all the fresh air comes in. Ah, summer.. :)
