“...a unique experience that celebrates American-style seafood, at its finest culinary and artistic level”

-Amanda Roberts-Jones, The Examiner

Started in 1999, Donovan’s Steak & Chop House first opened its doors in the renowned city of La Jolla, California with a commitment to serve 100% prime steaks, 100% of the time. Since then, San Diego based Donovan’s has become an iconic family of restaurants known for exceptional steak house experiences in San Diego and Phoenix.

Located steps away from the San Diego Convention Center in downtown San Diego’s famed Gaslamp Quarter, Donovan’s Prime Seafood is the epitome of excellence in sea fare, dedicated to extending the virtues of its heritage by serving only the finest products available in the market. The concept is to provide a menu that gives variety, without being overwhelming.
