This restaurant has two sides. A more formal side where the buffet is located and an Irish Pub. We chose the Irish Pub because the mural painted in the wall was quite interesting and fun to look at. We both had the turkey and swiss sandwich on cranberry nut bread. It was grilled to perfection.

Soup bread bowl was perfect here. The atmosphere of leprechauns was a great discussion for our family.

Went over St Patrick's weekend so not sure this review would represent this restaurant under normal circumstances. Menu was more limited and they had a buffet going in. Sandwich and salad bar were average, nothing awesome, nothing terrible. It was super busy with the partiers and had more of a pub crawl bar free. Probably much different any other weekend.

We dined in this restaurant during our stay at the hotel. The food was extraordinary! We had the seafood fettuccine and it was amazing! Large portions and the food tasted homemade......no packaged taste. We really enjoyed the breakfast as well.

I enjoy each time we stay . Staff very friendly and caring . Love their suites ...far above average. Nice pool and hot tub . Food is always great tasting and presentation is above average. Prices are $$ but all said "you get what you pay for" does apply.

The Doherty Hotel and Restaurant has been the classy hub of my hometown and the Clare community's center of culture, economy, etc. for over a century. Though I was not acquainted with the founders, I've been well aware that the last two generations of Dohertys, father A.J. and sons Dean and Jim, have continued to maintain the hotel's reputation as...
