We did not eat at Dooley's, but all of the food we saw delivered looked amazing. The drinks were good and the server was very fun!

Very good selection of local brews. Food is very average. Waitresses are very good. Bartender was very disinterested in customers. very interested in the waitresses.

They have the best potato soup that I've ever had. Service is excellent. The popcorn tops it all off.

I always come here to watch any big game. I love their drinks and appetizers, they make a perfect game time meal! Our server tonight, Krystal, was fantastic! Super attentive and made great recommendations (calamari was amazing)! I will definitely be returning!

They have 3 filet mignon sliders as an appetizer. I got it as a main dish in the late afternoon. Also got Blue Moon beer. Excellent. Filet was very tender, no fat, no connective tissue, one piece, nice texture, and good flavor. Another day I went to get a bowl of chicken noodle soup to go. The problem is that... More

This place is centrally located, and the sliders are wonderful! Happy Hour they actually have cheeses, crackers and lots of dips to enjoy. The beers are varied but we like the Dooley's Red/Amber!

Full of dumb jocks and the food isn't even worth putting up with the crappy atmosphere. Don't bother if you want to have a good time.

Had a good dinner, tasty food, lots of tvs to catch the game and very friendly staff. I am also a sucker for good popcorn and they bring you a big bowl to get you started.

We didn't have much time between appointments so we happened upon this Pub not far from Mayo. I quick checked the menu, it looked pretty good so in we went. The servers were Johnny on the spot and before we knew it our orders were taken and we had a couple of refreshing O'dell IPAs in front of us. We... More
