About Devlin’s Advocate

Devlin's Advocate

“Welcome to Devlin’s Advocate. Please come share your food, drinks and great times downtown Brantford. Our restaurant concept combines an innovative tapas bar menu with a la carte steakhouse, but still offering you all the pub food you desire!” ~ Ryan Devlin

Devlin's Advocate

Ryan Devlin (The Early Years)

Despite my Dad’s (Chris Devlin) wishes to get as far away from the restaurant industry as possible, I chose to stick with it and follow my dream.

Ryan Devlin (The Formative Years)

While growing up, family time meant working…Helping plate at catering jobs, wash dishes, set-up banquet halls, pick up supplies, or peeling shrimp. I am confident enough to say I peeled more shrimp by the age of 8, than most chefs will peel their whole life. I think this was my Dad’s way of deterring me from the industry, but little did he know this would inspire me.

Ryan Devlin (The Professional Years)

I loved working (for the most part), but more than anything I loved food and how it could bring people together. I loved how every day was a challenge, and I loved being a large part of the biggest celebrations of so many peoples lives. Whether this be weddings, birthdays or anniversaries, I think every day is a celebration. I never went to school for culinary, my education is entirely in business between Western, Fanshawe and France Business School, but most of my homework and studying is in food and drink.



And so came the concept for Devlin's Advocate. To take everything I love about food, drinks and way of dining and put it into one place. I wanted a place where customers could come relax and have a few cocktails, a couple snacks or a full blown meal. I wanted to design a place where parties small or large could come and enjoy an endless variety of food, with no pressure. The menu combines my two favourite styles of dining, tapas and steakhouse. I like guests to be able to enjoy a wide variety of appetizers, and be able to have a steak without being oligated to having to eat their steak as a whole meal, OR they can do that too! The menu is fully customizable and customers can tailor it however they like. In the end, I just want there to be something for everyone, from chicken wings and spinach dip to oysters and the finest steaks. Take this concept and combine it with live entertainment and its exactly where I would want to be.

    Had a great night out last night for dinner and drinks for my Birthday. The food was delicious and service was great. I really like the sharing is caring menu. Great idea when trying new foods! I had a hard time choosing what I wanted because everything sounded delicious. We will definitely be back Ryan! Keep up the good work.. and thank you for the shots

    Had a great time last night. Loved how Ryan came to see how everything was! The service was great and the food was amazing. Live music made the whole night perfect. I read a lot of the reviews and found some miss the "simple food" that was at this location prior. If you know the Devlin family, you don't go to have "simple". I personally went expecting a great menu with amazing food. Not cheap food and fast food. Great food takes time and in no time we had ours on the table. No complaints here. Will be returning for sure!

    I've been to Devlin's Advocate multiple times. The service is consistently pleasing and the food is well worth the trip. The only trouble I have encountered is deciding what to choose from the menu because there are so many favourites. Everything is exceptionally delicious, from the lamb chops to the cheeseburger spring rolls. The live entertainment has been nothing short of spectacular and really creates a great vibe for enjoying some great food and great drinks with friends!

    I have visited Devlin's Advocate numerous times and the service matches their fine dining restaurant Devlins Country Bistro. Atmosphere is laid back similar to a lounge/bar and the food is rocks. Great selection of local beer too, I believe we tried the Hometown Beer. Really good.

    There isn’t an item on the menu you can order that isn’t 5 Star. The staff are always welcoming and this is “the place” in Downtown Brantford for a social gathering; either business or pleasure. You have to visit this place!
