A recent review:
"The de Vere's Irish Pub is a family operation. It is a place where people can feel comfortable and relaxed while visiting and drinking thick, brown Guinness and eating Cork City burgers.
De Vere's has the genuine feeling of an authentic Irish pub. The one thing missing is all the cigarette smoke. The restaurant was designed by Irish pub makers. The bar furniture was built out of Irish red oak by Irish furniture builders. They came to Sacramento and installed it.
The pubs front section has a massive bar. The décor is great. The de Vere's is a home away from home for local Irish Americans. There are no reservations. You might have a hard time finding a table on a busy night. You seat yourself when a table is available. If you plan on dining arrive early.
The most popular dish at de Vere’s is Granny’s Shepherds Pie. It is a layer of ground beef with tiny bits of vegetables, with a creamy layer of mashed potatoes. You can also try the Fry-up for breakfast. It is a full Irish breakfast with fried eggs, Irish bacon, sausages, sautéed mushrooms and soft baked tomato wedges.
They have other delicious dishes like Irish beef stew, fish “n” chips and Limerick Sliders. They have many sandwiches including a great Rueben that is a good sandwich piled high with grilled chicken breast, Irish bacon, lettuce, tomato and avocado.
They also have great appetizers. They have potato skins filled with cheddar cheese and Irish bacon with a pint of Boddingtons Pub Ale.
The de Vere’s is a good place to eat. Try it and you will enjoy your meal and want to go back.
De Vere’s Irish Pub is at 1521 L St, Sacramento. There phone is 916-231-9947."
