Donovan's Village Tavern & Restaurant

UPDATE: Donovan's Village Tavern & Restaurant now closed. In its former location is now Ledge. Please see our update post.

The decor is outdated and the wood paneling kitschy. There is a bar connected to the restaurant that reminds you of decades gone by, but Donovan’s Village Tavern & Restaurant is as close as you can get to diner-styled food in lower Dorchester. Not to mention it is a classic Dorchester establishment. The people who work there are incredibly nice and the prices cannot be beat! You can eat breakfast for two for under $15. Although Chris is not Irish, he certainly enjoyed the Irish breakfast and Erin thought the two-egg breakfast was excellent. Don’t come here for a hip environment or gourmet cuisine, but an awesome breakfast for a great price..

2261 Dorchester Avenue, Dorchester
617.296.2316
Located in Lower Mills just north of the intersection of Dorchester Ave, and Washington St. Just north of the Milton T stop (Ashmont-Mattapan Trolley).

Any word on the progress of the remodel? I heard it was going to be a new, nice bar, what is the status?

No word since the original reports in the Dorchester Reporter. They have been doing work on the inside, but it appears to be at a pretty slow pace.
