We came along here to watch the US World Cup game vs. Portugal, rather than stay cooped up in our hotel. The place was packed by game time, so I'm glad we showed up in time to select seats we liked. it eventually became SRO for those who expected to saunter in about 35 minutes into the match. Our server... More

Loved the popcorn! It was so salty. (Goal is to get customers to order more drinks.) My husband and I had lunch here one day. His pulled pork sandwich came with Dooley's home made potatoe chips. God they were good! We both loved them! I had the wedge and did not like the way it was served. Instead of the... More

Just another average bar in Rochester. Pretty noisy due to lack of sound absorption (mostly concrete floors). It can be tricky to find a place to sit around happy hour as many Mayo Clinic folks stop in (take your name tags off please). Late night can be quite noisy if there is music going on. Pretty much average bar in... More

Dooley's is an Awesome place to meet friends after work or sit and have a nice dinner outside (in the summer of course). The Atmosphere is old Irish Pub meets hi-tech dance club. The food is delish.... have the potato soup! It's just an all round good place to hang out and eat!

Rochester has so many good eating places, but Dooley's has to rank at or near the top. The food is good, the service is very good, the prices are reason, and the decor is very nice. I have eaten there several times and have been impressed with each experience.

This was a lunch time stop and I think they need to dbl check who they hire. My meal was tasty, everything was done right, but one of the folks with me had to physically go grab our server after being ignored twice to ask him to bring the slaw he knew he forgot when he brought our meals. Then... More

Wow! We were downtown on a beautiful afternoon and stopped to have lunch outside on their patio. Our expectations were not high but what we received was great. Four of us had sandwhiches and let me tell you, they were over the top. The food was fantastic. You gotta try the walleye sandwhich. It was huge and amazing. Great atmosphere... More
