DP's is a local favorite in Garfield, New Jersey, which devotees return to year after year. While the menu is reasonably limited, there is always a variety of fresh seafood appetizers and entrees in addition to some standard favorites like the Sliced Steak platter. A full and extensive bar caters to those who simply drop in for a drink or two and perhaps a light snack on the way home. Open for dinner at 4pm, but only open for lunch on selected days toward the end of the week. The food is reliable. The service is always friendly. The clientele at the bar, usually total strangers at first, very often enjoy a casual and interesting discussion. All in all, a place to try as a change of pace which might well become a destination for multiple return visits.

DPs is a bar on the corner on River Road in Garfield and when I moved here it was the first place I found and wanted to head in. It looks like a hole in the wall which happen to be my favorite bars. The owner goes every morning and picks up fresh seafood and prepares for the customer for a really good price!! With your meal you get a house salad which my son loves burgers are delicious and the bar is great and dark it's hard to get out of there lol. I'm a regular and I love it there. They now have outside seating which is cool. All the girls are great and they treat you really nice

Have been in and out of DPs for years, face it, its a dive bar, jeans and tshirt is dressed up for this place, but If you can get past that I think you will like it......Seafood is fresh and good, small plates, cheap prices. My boyfriend didnt care for the place, AT ALL, its an acquired taste as far as atmosphere is concerned. Barmaids always pleasant.

An old-time pub with friendly service.My friends and I have been going there for years. Not much has changed with the decor(somethings are better unchanged for nostalgia). A Jukebox, a video game with several options, and 4 flat screen televisions. The menu includes the usual pub food and various seafood appetizers and dinner. The seafood specials vary according to the market. The prices are inexpensive. Usually go there to have the seafood appetizers and dinners. Get there before 6:30 p.m. otherwise the pub gets crowded and you will have to wait for seating. Table seating and bar seating is available. The bar runs the length of the building. Table seating is opposite of bar and towards back of the pub.
