They were very busy as this was a weekend during Pickle Fest. A lot of college kids drinking and having fun but were not obnoxious. Thought we would have a problem getting service as we were many years removed from college and from out of town but the staff was very attentive and pleasant. Loved this place!

I've eaten at Dooley's a few times and it's good, just not amazing food. Some items aren't even average. Their corned beef sandwich is disappointing, more bun than meat, bangers and mash the one time I had them were not good even a little, and most recently my fish and chips were served swimming in oil. I do enjoy the... More

I ordered the Irish Stew, I have had this at many other Irish Pubs and have enjoyed it, here, when it was brought out it looked like a bowl of dog food, the taste was not good and I could not eat it. Most Irish Stews have larger pieces of meat, and vegetables but this was very small pieces and... More

This bar/restaurant is at the site of the former Camaraderie Bar, which burned down years ago. It's similar in concept, but lacks the mystique that the original Camaraderie had. Still, it's a quaint place, with a large bar, plentiful seating, an upstairs loft and private room for small lunch meetings. It offers numerous large screen televisions with an emphasis on... More

Visited for lunch. The restaurant itself was pleasant. The service was not somewhat slow (to be served and the get our food). Luckily we were not in a big hurry but others may want to know this. Typical bar/restaurant menu choices.

We have stopped here 3 times over the last couple of years when in town. While the portions and service have dipped a bit on the last visit, it is still worth the time to stop in. The prices were very good in the past but since the portions have gotten smaller I would only say the the prices are... More

We stopped for a quick, lite, lunch while passing through Eau Claire. Missed the lunch rush, which is always good. Nice bright atmosphere, bar setting. Service was great but the salads were disappointing. We received a heaping pile of lettuce (that fell waisted onto the table with every fork full) but not much else. There were more croutons than chicken... More

I had the Irish Stew, which was wonderful the first time, (on St Patty's Day), and quite poor the second time. The waitress tried to make excuses for the under-cooked vegetables and watery broth, which was unacceptable. I haven't gone back.

Great Irish Pub sports bar and restaurant in Eau Claire. Excellent place to gather with friends and family, catch a game and eat some delicious Irish fare. LOVE the Rueben.

The place offers a great selection of pub food - do not miss out on the fried cheese curds! The place is visited by students and families alike - depending on the time of day of course.
