Great job with a large group

We ate here 2Xs during our weekend stay for a basketball tournament and they did a very nice job with our group both times. They were fast and systematic and they did not get rattled. We called ahead and they had everything read to go. Our food was fine and the beer was good. It is connected by... read more

Dooley's was close to our hotel. We were looking for a place we could grad some dinner and catch a basketball game. Lots of tvs - a good view from every seat. Good selection on the menu - not just bar food.

If you want a quiet neighborhood bar this isn't the place for you. It a party pub with family's and young twenty-something's. The waitresses are young, pretty, yoga-pants wearing, hired to bring in the guys. Our drinks were fine. Tons of TVs. Besides the logo I'm not totally sure what makes it Irish, then again I've been in actual pubs... More

My husband and I eat at this establishment every time we visit Rochester--it is definitely a favorite for us! I've ordered something different each time and I've never been disappointed. When I ask for recommendations from the server, each has a different recommendation--and excellent taste.

I had the potato and ham soup and the turkey club. My club sandwich was good. Kinda hard to mess one up. The potato and ham soup was, at best, average. I really was expecting more. My brother and sister had the cuban sliders and a grilled cheese (respectively). They both really liked them. We all did comment on the... More

Many tv's, fun environment, good food & great selection of beers. Food was good, pints were solid and the service was equally solid. Nice to place to relax in, although I dined on Tuesday night, perhaps it can get noisy and crazy on the weekends, the atmosphere when I was dinning was fun and relaxing. I watched the local Minnesota... More

I love this place! Outside seating and great atmosphere...wonderful waiter. I had an appetizer for dinner, nachos grande or the equivalent and they were excellent and way more than a person could ever eat.

While visiting the Mayo Clinic in early December, we came across a pub in downtown Rochester called Dooley's. It seemed simple on the outside, but once inside, we found a huge area filled with TV's and knew we'd found the perfect place to watch the Packers and New England play their Sunday game! The food was great, and the service... More
