This is our go-to restaurant when we want a bite to eat and a beer. They have great nachos & burgers and they have good salad options. We like the casual atmosphere and the wait staff is super friendly. It's a no-brainer for us.

Restaurant has been there for years & it's starting to show. I've noticed lately this restaurant needs a good scrubbing.

I've been going to this place for thirty years. It is a quintessential Neighborhood Restaurant and Bar. The food is good. It's not it's not great it's not bad. It's just generally good. The bar is it good old-fashioned neighborhood bar. On weekends they play good music. It's a fun place to be. People to work there are very considerate... More

We visit here bi-weekly and it's a great place for families or date night! They have a huge selection of beers! Plenty to choose from on their menu. Great kids selection. There is something for everyone.

We held my dad's birthday party here and everyone (45 of us!) was thrilled with the food and the staff. The buffet menu was extensive and tasty. There was plenty of room for us all, ample parking and clean restrooms. One little issue was a couple of us had gritty lettuce in our salad- but we understood how it could... More

The prices are quite reasonable. We ate in the bar area in a booth & we were very comfortable. The server was attentive and friendly. Looking forward to going... More

We have been going to Doody's over the years for, girlfriend lunches, dinners, grandchildren dinners and date night. Food is consistently good. The burgers are juicy and giant size. We love the variety of salads and the lasagna is always delicious. With the amount of food given, you have plenty for take home. The restaurant is rustic, though recent renovations... More

Bar with a dining room in the front and patio out back. As I walked in it smelled of stinky seafood, evidently it was all you can eat seafood buffet night. The smell was bad and made me feel sick. So we sat as far away from the buffet as possible. The wait staff are not very attentive and it... More

This place has been in business forever, small place to stop for a beer after work or stop In for the holidays, decent food, more known for its bar atmosphere then anything else
