I had eaten at Doolittles for lunch while in town on business, and just had to take my wife there while in Alex for a weekend. It definitely lived up to its billing as one of the best places to eat in the area. My wife had scallops in a ginger sauce, she loved it. The presentation was well done... More

Food was acceptable. Chef could stick to basics, we were looking for a good steak, not a dinning experience. This is a Minnesota rural setting, not the Ritz in New York City. More emphasis on the food, forget the presentation.

Seemed like a very limited menu, reasonably priced but food was not great, ribs were fatty and steaks were tasteless, great dinner salad and the fries were good.

We go to Doolittles on Special Events. WE always have great food and service. Also the price is within our means being retired. You need to go there. You will go back again.

Great place to enjoy dinner. I ordered the filet med rare and it came out spot on. We also had the side of walleye bites and they were tasty with the breading. Walleye is a very bland fish to begin with. The service in the bar area was awesome. Thanks for the experience.

We had dinner at Doolittles in Alexandria, MN during a recent visit. There were four in our party and we were seated promptly. My brother declared the Parmesan Crusted Walleye to be one of the best Walleye meals he's had. I had the Applewood Bacon and Smoked Cheddar Burger which was also very good.

Our kids and grandkids took us out for a retirement party for me! Great food and the people serving were very good! They did their best to accommodate our large group by pulling tables together.

Featuring woodfired rotisserie cooking, Doolittles Woodfire Grill is an experience that delights 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 Reduction. Doolittles boasts over 60 wines by the bottle and 30 selections by the glass. Warm, relaxing atmosphere...come as you are!
