Always enjoy MJ Dowling’s! Food is consistently good with wonderful service.
Great pub good food at a fair price
Sunday music a bonus
I live in the neighborhood, but it was my first time here. Everything was excellent. Even though this is a steakhouse, they have a varied menu. We had the seared tuna steak special. It was delicious. We’ll be back to our new local favorite!
We’ve been a number of times. Great comfort food and excellent service. Really enjoyable and highly recommended
Family visiting from out of town
One of very few remaining good value local eateries in the Hamptons. Solid comfort food for any season in a pleasant setting just outside Sag Harbor. Would recommend all their food, but thin crust pizzas are good, steaks are great value, boneless wings are great etc etc etc.
We came to Dowling’s to have dinner after a movie. We had an excellent dinner outside. Both of us had the salmon for our main course and it came with delicious vegetables and rice. The wine was also good and reasonably priced.
Since we ate outside, the only noise was some road traffic.
After making a reservation for standard seating well in advance, not bar or patio, my reservation was not honored. I was offered a seat in the bar where a loud group of guys were watching a sports event, not wearing masks within a foot of the table. Then I was offered a seat on the patio, which was soaking wet because of the recent rain. This was also unacceptable. The manager did not care that I had been going to that restaurant for decades and that I was a local who would be giving them business in the off season when the tourists were gone. He was dismissive at best. The hostess was surly and rude. They lost a long time customer last night and did not seem to care. Sad. Bad business ethics.
Just wonderful everything …. Except noise from bar. Difficult to talk. But all in all we love the food and the service
Great service. Wonderful people who work there. Love the food and drinks.
Only negative is that we had to wait more than a half hour for the table
Local place, great food
Delicious sausage & pepper hero. Onion soup best I’ve ever had☺️
We were visiting and found the restaurant through Open Table. We had a small group with different food interests. Everyone was pleased, the atmosphere was great (large booths), the server was polite and engaging, and the costs were reasonable. It is slightly outside of the main section of Sag Harbor but a quick drive.
Overpriced. Glass of house wine was $15
I will never go back. The manager is belligerent.
The restaurant was good enough for our group. With the shortage of staff that everyone is experiencing, it was not surprising that things were not perfect. We had a shrimp cocktail incident where a full shrimp cocktail was dropped on one of our guests. The cocktail sauce just missed two people in our group. Fortunately, it was a relatively minor incident. Unfortunately, there was no effort made by management to handle the situation gracefully. There was actually no acknowledgement. At least they didn’t charge us. The waiter took it upon himself to comp our drinks.
All in all, it was a reasonably good evening, but it was our group that made that happen.
The meal could feed a party of 4, and we were just 2. It was Pasta Night so we ordered from that menu. Very clean, waitstaff friendly and nice family atmosphere.
The food was excellent. Fresh, plentiful and good value.
The service was terrific.
Busy restaurant that still manages to deliver great food and service!!
We were a party of four -two enjoyed burgers, one had shrimp fajitas and one had chicken Milanese. All very good. Service was exceptional!
Great dinners! The specials here never disappoint! The mahi-mahi and chicken Milanese were delicious and reasonably priced for this area! One of our favorite places!!!
Dowling's is a very popular spot for locals and tourists. It is a friendly, welcoming restaurant. All the food on the menu is delicious and reasonably priced.
The special s of the day are a tremendous bargain. We enjoyed a Caesar salad, salmon and cheesecake for $29. The slice of salmon was huge and the presentation lovely with spinach and ratatouille.
Best buy in Sag Harbor and delicious food.
It is reliably good food, with good service in a comfortable setting. We sat outside in the garden fir the first time and it was very very nice.
Perfect for what it tries to be: a real sports bar with solid sports bar food at a very reasonable price (for the Hamptons).
Great food, nice staff and service
We definitely will be back
Great food, friendly staff. We sat outdoors with kids and this became a surprising Open Table find. Perfect for what we needed. Will return.
Great menu and the food is always good. Parking can get tight when it’s busy. One of our go to joints in the Hamptons
Great local pub. Food is consistently good as well as the service from provided by friendly competent staff that have worked there for some time. Great Fajitas, burgers, gyros, nachos and pizza.
This was our first time to visit MJ Dowlings, casual pub type atmoshpere, great food, perfect casual Sunday evening out.
We had the Tuesday special which were different pasta dishes. They all come with a large fresh salad.we had eggplant parmigiana and chicken parmigiana. Generous portions and very well made. Service is always good.
Really nice bar and restaurant. Nice buzz to it, good choice of food and beers. Great for a Friday night
Always good food and good service. It’s out go-to restaurant
We love going to Dowlings. Just a great local place with great people.
Delicious food. Exactly what I thought it would be
I am very happy to say that we enjoyed our recent visit to Dowlings. The service is always great, efficient & food perfect. Thank you will be back again.
Always a good eating experience.
