Description: Featuring woodfired rotisserie cooking, Doolittles Woodfire Grill is an experience that ignites all of your senses! The woodfired rotisserie grills meat over an open flame for a savory wood roasted flavor. The rotation of the rotisserie creates self basting and slow roasting skewers resulting in juicy and succulent meats such as Spit-Roasted Chicken, and Smoked Hanger Steak with Horseradish-Whipped Potatoes and Red Wine Demi. Doolittles boasts over 60 wines by the bottle and 30 selections by the glass. Warm, relaxing atmosphere...come as you are!

“Ummm-Ummm- Good!! Great food and service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

I've been going to DooLittle's for years. The food and service is always "top shelve". I love the BBQ chicken dinner -- comes with fries and cole slaw --the chicken is woodfired grilled -- and super tasty. I've tried the Walleye dinner too -- another can't miss meal... Ummm.. Hope to see ya all in the future at this wonderful restaurant....

“Always a favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

While some waitresses are better than others, Mandy was a great one and needs to be compimented. Very attentive and yet not obtrusive. I had the ribs and chicken. How could I not after walking in and smelling them cooking on the open fire pit? My wife had the rotisserie chicken sandwich and my daughter had the rotisserie pork loin with the mango chutney. We always enjoy the food here and make it an annual event when our daughter is home. This was topped with with a creme brule (consistently good) and a Molten Nirvana, a chocolate delight that is true nirvana. as is normal for the cities and suburbs, drinks are a bit overpriced but choices are very good. We know this and still go back so that does not present a problem to us.

there are no reservations taken so sometimes the wait is a tad long, but again we are aware of that and feel it is worth a short wait.

“I see why they are the #1 restaurant in Eagan!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

Reviews are correct. Great service, great food, eat indoors or out. Large menu to satisfy the appetite for a snack or large meal. Try one of their unique dishes. I had the walleye fajita and it was delicious. I have not just a new favorite for Eagan, but for the south twin city area.

“If close by ...yes. If you have to go some distance to get there... no.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Generally quite busy but I suspect that is due more to atmosphere & bar than to food quality. Local gathering hole for the somewhat younger crowd.

“Come early, they draw a crowd after work!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

When Doolittle's has seating and staff, it's great! If they are crowded or short-staffed, prepare to wait. Living and working in Japan since 2008, I sometimes tell my colleagues that American restaurants emphasize quantity over quality. In the case of Doolittle's, expect a quality meal and generous portions. If the entrees aren't generous by your standards, there are some nice appetizers and the complementary bread is delicious and replenished as you please.
