Fun atmosphere, unique menu items compared to many of the bar type establishments. Very much a UW-EC spot, so be prepared for hungover college kids getting their "hair of the dog". Good burgers!


Decent place for table chit-chat and strong martinis. Workers are very friendly, at least the ones that work on week nights - weekends is a slightly different story, but then the whole place is better during the week anyway. Go for happy hour on a Tues. afternoon, sit next to a unkempt looking old guy, sip a cosmo, and have yourself a good time. (Do not eat the cheese curds.)


I enjoyed my visit to Dooley's Pub. The staff and the locals patrons were super friendly. I had never had cheese curds before so I took the suggestion of the bartender SWANY to try them. The cheese curds we out of this world and the Spotted Cow beer, I had with them was awesome. I just wish I had it in WA state. The only thing I can say is if someone orders a "shanty" nada mas my friends. And for all the folks that don't hold Dooley's food in high regrad lets think about this its PUB style food if you go to Ireland it's going to be just like it is at Dooley's . Let me remind you the Irish aren't know for the high culinary arts their know for WHISKEY!!! Erin Braugh!!!!


These cheese curds suck. They are not cheese curds but giant 1.5 inch cubes of cheese that have been fried. It makes me sick just to think about it. Also had the grilled chicken sandwich was about as dry as they come. They may have put 1/2 tsp of mayo on the whole sandwich which really highlighted how dry it really was.


Super disappointing the last time I went here. We got the corned beef and cabbage, which was so salty that it was completely inedible. Who is preparing the corned beef at this place? Whoever it is obviously lost his/her sense of taste.
