Overall my date and I were quite pleased. The food was great with great service. My only complaint and downside is that I made a reservation a week ahead of time and when we got there the table we requested was unavailable due to be people being there 4 hours ahead. I was very disappointed with this. I expected the table to be ready. It was Valentines day and asked for a quiet table for 2. Instead my date and I were put into the bar side where it was noisy and loud. I think the restaurant should have better scheduling for reserved tables for people who make the reservations. If not whats the point in making one. I thinks they could of taken a bit off the price for the meal or given a coupon toward my next visit. I really like this restaurant but they for dropped the ball on this one and my romantic dinner for my date was a bust.

Nice pub with a nice menu, food was good customer service could use a bit of an improvement, but was not a deal breaker, we will be back.

We had a great dinner for Valentines Day,, steak was perfectly cooked, service was great, we’ve come to Doc’s a couple times now and we recommend it to others. We don’t live in the area so it’s always a treat when we visit Niagara to come to Doc’s

Was there on Sunday i.e. 01/07, it was quite and not crowdy. I ordered fish and chips which I normally don’t order at a place I don’t know about, however I did and it was good, nothing to complaint about. I will happily go there again.

The Irish plate was good. The shepherds pie, curry and beef pot pie were good, fish was a good size as were the chicken wings. However, we came with friends and our friends husbands meal was lost and did not come until after we had all eaten. Then his Bangers and Mash was poor (sausage's were awful, soft/gooey like, he told waitress), all fries were overcooked and very cardboard like in texture.

The waitress after letting us know the meal had been missed was distant and did not come back to the table as much as before. Another waitress seemed to take over our table and was much better personality wise. My friends meal was then delivered by one of the kitchen staff. The meal was taken off the bill but we were far from impressed with the service and quality. And to end the day the dessert my friend wanted was not in stock (bread pudding).

Being from England it sure didn't size up to the pubs of home which is why we came, as your ad seemed inviting. I said I would recommend but I am on the fence on this at this time.

The food (Lobster Mac and Cheese, Fisherman's Pie) was delicious. We would order those dishes any time, but they were perfect for a cold and snowy evening. The service was also excellent: friendly, polite, and efficient. We're looking forward to going to Doc Magilligan's again and trying other dishes.

Good pub food but entrees are pricey. Nice selection of beer and a casual upbeat pub. Recommend the Reuben bites.

Was there to celebrate my husband's birthday. Our waiter was very friendly, helpful and the cheesecake in honour of the birthday boy was fantastic. Overall our food and experience was excellent and my son's menu option was " phenomenal" A fabulous spot in the Falls. We will be back for sure!

Great atmosphere. Very nice server. The food overall is very good, except the meat loaf is bland and a bit dry. Still worth the drive, and there are many things on the menu we want to try. Recommended.

My husband liked his roast beef dinner very much. My roast chicken however was very dry. The ambiance of the place is nice, that’s about it.
