Donovan’s of Bayside
214-16 41st Ave., Bayside, NY, 11361. 718-423-5353.
It’s all in the name. Donovan’s of Bayside – voted best Irish bar in the whole borough – is a favorite among locals and newcomers alike. The longtime Irish pub, first opened in Bayside in 1978 after premiering in Woodside in 1966, serves up burgers and other beloved comfort foods, all in a traditional Irish setting. Dubbed by lifelong locals the “House of Eats,” Donovan’s is noted for its exceptional burgers, steaks, seafood and plentiful trimmings. Of course, the drinks are also terrific. A New York institution and Queens staple, it’s no wonder Donovan’s of Bayside takes the crown.
