We had a good meal at Dowlings. The place was very crowded, but the service was good. Everyone enjoyed the food.

Had another fine feast from Dowlings and all was delish! We've been there many times and recently tried take-out. Our burgers were perfect, tasty, and piping hot. This is the safe place to go for a consistently tasty bite.

Visited here with a large group of friends. Very few times can you go somewhere and find that everyone is pleased with the meal. Affordable and delicious. Would love for service to be a bit better but overall an excellent find.

This restaurant has managed to stay afloat and change as needed in shark infested Hampton waters. They have great outside seating, a great bar and a very warm and cozy dining room, not to mention a small game room with billiards tables and video games. The tap beer selection is mostly local, cold , fresh and delicious. The wings and... More

We have enjoyed many meals here, and have never been disappointed. The drinks are cold, the greeting is warm, and the food is excellent. Not fancy, just really tasty well prepared burgers, specials, seafood and salads. The steak fajitas are the best I have ever had. Nightly specials are a good value. Service is helpful and sincere. We love this... More

I wish it was better.. I want it to be better.. We love the staff & it should be better It just isn't better. It's so so and that is unfortunate. This restaurant is owned by locals who have been in the restaurant business for many, many years. They get by on mediocrity which is so unfortunate, they should be... More

The atmosphere was above average and you can dine inside or at the bar or outside on the patio. The place was clean, the staff was friendly, and the food (once they got it right) was great. Numerous mistakes with the food and the bill and the waitstaff was a bit inattentive. I would come back again.

My family and I got take out on New Year Eve. We had the iceberg wedge salad which was big and good. Somebody had the burger which was huge and good. The other people had the lamb gyro. The lamb gyro was frozen patties which I actually like and it tasted quite good.

So called 1/2 chicken entree was one thigh. When told to waitress and chef they told us we were wrong. Unbelievable bad attitude. No compensation was offered. Won't go back.
