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

Across the street from Newts and you don't have to leave the skywalk. Our service was quick, friendly, attentive, and the food came fast. It's a sports bar but the food was better than expected. I had the Juicy Lucy and to my surprise the burger was not over cooked. Will definitely go back when in town next.

Dooleys is a good place to eat lunch, but at night it gets expensive. We have done drinks, food, and nightlife there and were not impressed. It gets so busy you can't even move and drinks are outrageously high.

Absolutely loved the Juicy Lucy Burger, stuffed with jalapeno cheese, with bacon and jalapeno's on it! Almost ordered a 2nd one. Was a little taken back, however, at the price of a bottle of non-alcoholic beer (O'Douls) which was OVER $5 a bottle!!!!!! THAT was ridiculous. It was priced as if it was a "foreign" beer and not from St.... More

Bartenders were awesome. Friendly, service was great. It was a bit too loud for me, but otherwise the environment was well. I don't see the Irish pub, more of a sports bar
