This is the place to be downtown for a great nite-life! Great drinks and food as well as a nice dance floor and plenty of space for friends and fun!

Had the Reubens and it was on the dry side. The garlic parmigiano fries however are quite good. Service was good .

While waiting in between appointments we had lunch there. I like their lunch combo menu because you can get soup and a sandwich but not in large portions where I feel wasteful. Also a great place to relax and get a drink if you are nervous or stressed!

Nice pub. Convenient location to Centerstone. Lots of TV screens playing all ball games. Friendly crowd. Lots of disappointed Packer fans.

We ate there on a cold snowy night after walking, looking for a place to eat. I had soup and a sandwich. Both were good, but I wouldn't say they were to die for. They were not busy that night. The service was good and it did not take long to get our food. It didn't seem like an Irish... More

OK I am guilty of having the pleasure of enjoying Dooley's a few times but that's what happens when you have a seat at the bar or a seat in a quiet corner, a great choice of chow and a fantastic and vibrant staff waiting to serve you! Downtown in a growing and upbeat city that provides a sports watcher... More
