Growing up in Illinois, we loved to eat a dish called the "Horseshoe", which originated in Springfield. We decided that it would be an excellent idea to bring the "Horseshoe" to Georgia and introduce along with our Irish traditions. We know that you will like the "Horseshoe" as much as we do!
Our priority is to ensure your satisfaction from the moment you walk into our restaurant to the final bite of your meal. We know that your satisfaction is the key to our success in this business and that has made us earn a reputation in customer service and menu quality.
How the name Donovan's Irish Cobbler came about:
We went through a very difficult process when trying to come up with the perfect name for our restaurant. After so many brainstorming meetings, it came down to the basics. We are an Irish pub introducing a horseshoe sandwich to the South with a specialty dessert. We asked ourselves, what anyone else would do in our situation and just out of curiosity, we Googled "Irish Cobbler" and the results felt like we ended up striking gold.
It so happens that an Irish Cobbler is a variety of Irish potato, and everyone knows about cobbler desserts. The real kicker to the story is that a Cobbler is also a shoemaker. Realizing the rough similarity between a horseshoe and a cobbler the catchy name just stuck. Thus, Donovan's Irish Cobbler was born.
It will be our pleasure to watch you smile after you take a bite of our horseshoe sandwich!
May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.
May God be with you and bless you:
May you see your children's children.
May you be poor in misfortune,
Rich in blessings.
May you know nothing but happiness
From this day forward.
May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the warm rays of sun fall upon your home
And may the hand of a friend always be near.
May green be the grass you walk on,
May blue be the skies above you,
May pure be the joys that surround you,
May true be the hearts that love you.
