It's OK.....

I was not very impressed with this restaurant. It's a little lacking in the Irish pub atmosphere; service was slow and the quality of the food was "ok" in taste and presentation. There are several large screen tvs to enjoy a variety of football games,etc. Prices are average/reasonable... read more

Dooleys Pub is a fun, casual atmosphere where you hang out when you want a good beer (they have a great selection) and some good food. The Guinness gravy is wonderful! We always enjoy sitting in the upstairs because it has a good view of Water St. The service isn't always quick, but they are always pleasant and I've never... More

Stopped in for a lunch with a friend and was very disappointed. Let me point out that this poor review is only related to the food and not to the service. Our waitress was very attentive, friendly and helpful. A very nice lady. My friend had the quesadillas and I had a chicken Caesar salad. Neither meal was good and... More

Dooley's Pub is an Irish bar near UW-Eau Claire. The fish fry consisted of four lightly breaded pieces of cod, cole slaw and fries. This was one of the best fish fries we have eaten in Wisconsin.

They always have great food. I usually get the Corned Beef and Cabbage. Only thing i have to ding them on is the Cabbage is cooked separate from the Corned Beef and so it does not have the flavor so its kind of bland. But the Corned Beef cuts are great.

Just had the worse restaurant experience of my life. If you live in the Eau Claire area, be advised that Dooley's Pub has the worst service. It took us 25 minutes to get sodas and water that we ordered, and an hour and 15 minutes to get our food orders. It was not very busy in the restaurant. When the... More

We've eaten here a few times and have had good luck with appetizers and burgers. Recently we decided to try the Irish fare since it is an Irish restaurant and pub. The Irish stew tasted ok, nothing great and appeared to be made with some kind of precut potato. The corned beef and cabbage was a mixture of quality. The... More

Servers were friendly. I had the Friday fish fry. It was ok. Past dishes have been tastier. Good variety of sports on the screens.

We have eaten at Dooleys a few times since my daughter started college in Eau Claire. I really like the veggie quesidillas. The mac and cheese bites are good too, as well as the cheese curds. Service has been consistently good, even when they are very busy.
