Four of us arrived for lunch with a 45 minute window to order & eat. They served us 2 bowls of fresh popped popcorn and told us they were the fastest cooks in the area! We ordered 2 sandwiches (with fries) to split between us. They came out of the kitchen fast, hot and excellent tasting. Also plenty of food... More

This pub has it all great food, great beer and outside seating....This pub has the best outside, street level seating of all the pubs downtown. There's lots of different food, good service and great atmosphere...

Often went for lunch while working in Rochester. Hard to get a seat during the lunch rush. Food has always been worth the money.

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!

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.
