First time in many years. Like the menu, and our server was terrific. Lighting was a bit harsh, but we were happy to find a place we would come back to.

Great service and was friendly. Good gluten free options. Prefer coke over pepsi products. Easy parking. We can hear each other talk as it is not too loud. We really enjoy coming to Doolittles in Golden Valley and have dined here at least once every few months for years.

Service and food was excellent. Had the duck and it was good, jerk chicken had good favor but not spicy. Beer was good and so was the blue party mojito. Service was well paced for our taste, not quick, and allowed for us to chat between appetizers, main meal, and dessert.

The only saving grace to the evening was the exceptional server. The food is marginal at best. Our walleye fingers were warm ( not hot), the fries were cold, and for a place specializing in rotisserie chicken, it's nowhere to be found on the cobb salad. Tomatoes are the main feature. Value is completely lacking. Ambience is mediocre. We won't even consider a return visit.

Overall it was a really good experience! The waiter was attentive and interactive, it was sometimes hard to hear him due to the noise level. The appetizer was A-MAZE-ING! I could have ordered that just for my meal! My meal (fettuccine alfredo) was a little dry, I should have asked for extra sauce. The creme brulee I had for dessert was perfect! I would go back and I would recommend!

We loved our food at Doolittle's but it was unanimous that we did not care for our waitress. She was on top of things but just didn't seem happy to be waiting on us. Kind of short with us. Then when my full wine glass fell over due to a drink menu resting on it, she charged me for a 2nd glass. I complained and she did take the charge off the bill but wasn't very happy about it.

The restaurant was empty when we got there and they sat us in a both right next to the kitchen, it was very noisy. The whole time we were there it did not fill up. So here we are sitting next to the noisy kitchen.

Food was good as usual with very good service. Waiter was knowledgeable. Good place to meet friends for dinner but it was very noisy which made for difficulty in hearing and conversation.

As always the menu is great at making most people happy with many choices. I had the Smoked Chedar and Bacon burger with fries. It's always tough to decide between the delicious fries and mashed potatoes here. Everyone's food was great and served quickly. Our drinks were never empty. Fantastic service.

Although we had a very positive dining experience, I am only giving you three stars because the reception employees did not pay attention to our request and one of the guests was seated at a separate table and waited over 15 minutes to join her dining companion. We made our needs known and I don’t know how we could have made things any clearer.When we drew this to our wait person’s attention, no one seem to think it was important or an oversight on part of the staff.

The food was good and service was great. The restaurant however does not seem to have the air conditioning working properly plus they have the fire going. Our table was towards the door and we were hot the whole time. This made for a very uncomfortable dinner.

My picky son loved everything...the burger, ribs, mashed potatoes...and the ketchup? Big hit with my family. The wood-roasted items are especially unique and delicious.

We eat 5-6 times a year at Doolittle’s and have never had a bad meal. The service, from the host station through the serving staff, has always been excellent. Noelle has been our server on numerous occasions and stands out as superior among an excellent staff. Our one disappointment on our latest visit was the Carrot Cake. It is too far from a traditional carrot cake, in our opinion, and should be reconsidered by the executive chef. We never hesitate to recommend Doolittle’s to others. A Golden Valley treasure!

The salads don’t have much protein in them, especially the chicken avacado salad. It was mostly greens.
