Ribeye was so tough I couldn’t cut it. Bad cuts of meat for the price point. Noisy restaurant.

Food was good and service was great. I understand the hosts are stressed, but her greeting and tone was beyond rude. We had a reservation and knew we checked in early by 10 minutes . Her tone was uncalled from, then they try to sit us at a dirty table , when I asked for it to be wiped they said that how the table was. So crumbs and salt and left over food is just how the table is… good thing the food was amazing and the server was great.

As expected- a crowded evening - glad we made a reservation. Even with that we waited 20 minutes to be seated,

Well worth the wait. Chicken wings must be popular- they were Not as large or meaty as in the past. However they had the gray smoky, spicy taste profile for which they’re known.

Salmon was cooked perfectly accompanied by a variety of vegetables and flavors. We cleaned our plates!

The guys enjoyed the hamburger and the ribs / chicken combination plate.

We were able to enjoy our conversation - the crowded atmosphere didn’t hamper it.

This is my first time at Doolittle's as I live in Saint Paul. From the moment I walked in, I felt welcome and was greeted warmly. The atmosphere is warm and is so different. The server was kind, thoughtful and so attentive. The food was delicious and came quickly. Regardless of the drive-out, I will definitely be back. Great experience.

Ordered ribs. What a mistake. Could barely cut them off the bones. Lots of gristle and ugly things I had to spit out. "Fall off the bone"...no way. Do not order their ribs!

The food and ambiance were fantastic. Our waitress was very pleasant. The only downside was that It took quite a long time to receive our appetizers, drinks and food but with the shortages in staff everywhere, we took it in stride. Overall a great dinner and evening and would definitely go again.

To start I ordered a Sidecar from the bar made very well and a cup of wild rice soup very good soup. For dessert we had the lava cake that also was very good. The main course not so good. I had the chicken and ribs dinner, the chicken was dark meat or should I say mostly bone and skin and the ribs were basically a sticky glaze on a bone with very little meat. Disappointed to say the least.

Sat us by a door next to the patio, so every time it opened a rush of wind came through, and it opened/closed a lot.

We came to Doolittles to celebrate our 60th wedding anniversary. We have always had positive experiences when we dine there. We had reservations and were seated without a wait. We were asked if we wanted outside or in. We chose inside as it was quite windy. We were asked if we preferred a booth or table. We said a booth. It would have been a great location, as it gave us a view of the nice patio. Unfortunately, we were right next to a table with a large group. It was nice to see and hear them having them enjoying time socializing, but it was so loud, we had a difficult conversing with each other. It put a damper on our special celebration. The food was delicious, and the service was fine. I would still recommend Doolittles.

Very nice patio and friendly servers. The food was not up to its usual par. The pear salad was poor. Pears not ripe and under grilled. Overall I still recommend as they are generally better but the busy Friday night seems to have stretched them too far.

We love the wings at Doolittle’s. Their large, rotisserie style 3-piece style was the best in town. WAS. The wings we got tonight were tiny & pretty usually tasting. I asked the manger if they had a new food suppler & he said no & that the wings we got were small. He did reduce our bill, which was nice, but it would have been better not to serve this subpar food. We’ve eaten here a lot & will try it once more.

I had requested a table in a certain section of the restaurant and that is exactly what we gut. The service wasn't the best but you could tell it didn't seem to be fully staffed, we were patient and tipped our server well. I don't believe in basically punishing the server for things she couldn't control such as a slow kitchen. It was great as usual the food and service were good. We are regulars and will keep coming. Nothing is perfect in life but to me it's how it's handled after they are made aware of any concerns is the difference in whether or not we come back or not. We will g back.

Our server, Grover, could have been more attentive. He was pleasant and got our order correct, but did not check back in a timely way and we waited a while between our meal being done and getting a check. The experience was not terrible, but with a little prompter check back, it could have been better.

We got sat in the bar next to the staff walk way and it was hot. We thought they were trying to distance everyone so we just dealt with it. Our server was the bartender and when my husband got his second old fashioned he thought it tasted different. When he asked her about it, she said she may have used a lemon in it "by accident". No apologies and didn't offer to take it off. That was the most frustrating part, even though we had to approach her at the bar when we needed something because she was cleaning the bar instead of serving.

Apparently our order was never put in. All other table who arrived after us were served and finishing their food. Server never checked on us after initial drink delivery. After an hour spoke to the manager. He promised our food in 5 minutes. Stupidly waited another 15 minutes and left.

We are repeat customers and for good reason. Doolittles is our go-to place. The staff is friendly, the service is great and so is the food. Their wood fire cooking gives a great flavor you can't get anywhere else. Try the wings and then go on to the ribs and chicken. The steaks are cooked on wood fire and are awesome. Now is patio season and that is where we hang out whenever the weather is permitting. We can't say enough about Doolittles.

I go there for the chicken sandwich because it is so tasty!! However, that and a small ramekin of slaw is overpriced at $14.50.

I ordered the Cobb salad and it lacked flavor. The lettuce had a lot of brown on it and the blue cheese dressing was bland (hard to believe). Our food came fast and we stayed awhile after finishing but the server never came back after we settled the bill to check on us or provide more water. It was also really warm inside (on a 99 degree humid day). I could see the thermostat from our table was set to 74.

We had reservations at 6:15 and were seated on time. The waiter was great, he let us know the kitchen was backed up. It took 1 hour and 15 minutes to get our food. The waiter did a nice job refilling our water and bringing us more bread. What was disappointing was, the managers were walking around the dining room not talking to customers while the wait staff was working hard and taking verbal abuse from some customers. Food was good, not worth the wait!

Host and hostess were excellent, very friendly. Food was great. Waitress, Carrie was quite rude and subpar. She ignored us during or visit, did not refill our waters. After we signed our check.... she accused us of taking one of her pens.
