What started in Woodside Queens now reaches across the borough into Bayside. Donovanís Grill & Tavern is much more than a restaurant; we are a dining landmark with a fascinating history.
It all began in 1966 when Joe Donovanís invested his life savings in his dream of opening a tavern bearing his name. That dream became a reality in Woodside Queens, where Joeís welcoming charm attracted a loyal following of local Irish immigrants, notable politicians and sports figures.
Soon, regulars affectionately dubbed the restaurant ďHouse of EatsĒ for its exceptional burgers, steaks and plentiful trimmings. In 1978 Donovanís of Bayside opened in the former Peterís Back Street location, and soon became a neighborhood favorite by continuing to serve the finest food and drink in a setting where patrons felt both comfortable and pampered.
Today, Donovanís is a favorite among locals, business people, shoppers and anyone else seeking a great meal, a beautiful location, and world-class service.
