Donnovan's was awesome. Bulldog sucks - they got rid of the "old-school pub" feel and made it into a yuppie burger bar, where the burger & fries combo was double the price. And they wonder why they're not making money?

I have to agree..I was a regular at Donovans,,the food was great. After the new owner took over I was happy to go there and show support. They did a great job on the interior and space, however the food was not as good, and it was much more expensive. AFter leaving the bar I was hungry! I hope the best for them, but why did they change something which worked and people enjoyed?

Donovan's WAS awesome.
And you're right about the new owner.
I can't count how many successful businesses I have seen sold, with the new owner trashing its cachet.
It's called re-inventing the wheel.
Sooner or later, they come up with a perfect square.
And here we go again.
