“Love their popcorn!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014

Loved the popcorn! It was so salty. (Goal is to get customers to order more drinks.) My husband and I had lunch here one day. His pulled pork sandwich came with Dooley's home made potatoe chips. God they were good! We both loved them! I had the wedge and did not like the way it was served. Instead of the wedge of iceberg lettuce being topped with the dressing, bacon and blue cheese crumbles, etc., it was served "do it yourself." Meaning, each ingredient was on the plate but I had to mix them together myself. We stopped by again during "Thursdays on First and Third." I had iced tea and my husband had a couple of beers; we noshed on the popcorn and enjoyed people watching. The day of my surgery, my husband finally made his way out of the hospital, and returned to Dooley's for dinner and beer before calling it a day. He found it a great place to unwind after a stressful day of waiting around the hospital.

“Pass the remote control”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2014

Wow, can someone change the channel? if you wish to watch sports in Rochester, this may be the place. there are > 15 television, not to mention a couple large screen projectors. while we were there all the TV's with the exception of maybe 2-4 had the blackhawks vs kings game on. the remaining TV's had the REPLAY of the basketball playoffs. REALLY?? you need that many sets turned to the hockey game and the rest on a game played the night before? ridiculous!
the food was average at best. i had the BBQ pulled pork sandwich. the menu states "house smoked tender pork" - very doubtful since i could not taste any smoke flavor on the meat. without the BBQ sauce it tasted like a regular pork sandwich.
popcorn was good and not too salty.
prompt service. not in a hurry to return.

“Average bar in Rochester”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

Just another average bar in Rochester. Pretty noisy due to lack of sound absorption (mostly concrete floors). It can be tricky to find a place to sit around happy hour as many Mayo Clinic folks stop in (take your name tags off please). Late night can be quite noisy if there is music going on.

Pretty much average bar in Rochester...nothing special, but then again, not all that bad. "Meh" is a good description.

“Fun Place, Good Food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

Dooley's is an Awesome place to meet friends after work or sit and have a nice dinner outside (in the summer of course). The Atmosphere is old Irish Pub meets hi-tech dance club. The food is delish.... have the potato soup! It's just an all round good place to hang out and eat!
