Doolan's Ensured I had the BEST and Most Magical Wedding EVER!
Hands down, this was the best venue I could have had my wedding in. Let's start with the charm, the place has been owned by the same family since the 1950's and it has held it's charm. Everything is beautiful! Secondly, this venue has a small hotel attached to it. This is very convenient. While not all rooms are updated, they are kept VERY clean and they are quite spacious. The bridal suite is INSANE. Basically, it is two hotel rooms made into one. It has two bathrooms, a murphy bed, a huge king size bed, room for the makeup and hair people, huge mirrors, and plenty of room for everyone to get ready. The staff, is impeccable and attentive. The response rate is almost instant and the packages for weddings are very reasonable. Doolan's has some of the most delicious food I have ever tasted. Our cocktail hour is still being talked about. The food was so good, I heard that people didn't want to leave cocktail hour to go into reception. Choosing Doolan's and working with Susan and her staff was the absolute BEST decision I made for my wedding to the love of my life!

When we walked in, Susan greeted us, gave us a tour & answered all of our questions. We had some requests to include traditional Portuguese food & accommodate guests with food allergies. Any request, Susan found a way to fulfill it perfectly. We loved the cocktail hour room, their prices were extremely reasonable, for a June Sat. night. Our guaranteed count was 100 & that they included so much (centerpieces, signature drinks 30 mins before cocktail hour, 20 room block onsite to name a few). We went to a few tastings prior to choosing our food & the selection was unbelievable. We booked the Shore Club package with Surf n Turf as 1 option for dinner. Many guests enjoyed & it portions were generous. All guests stated the food was delicious & there was a lot of it. Some wished they had more room to try it all. Leading up to our day, Doolan’s confirmed all the final details & we were able to drop off everything on Tues./Wed. before our Sat. wedding so we didn’t have to worry & they could go through it & ensure everything we wanted was completed. Tom, our Maitre’D, was fantastic & attended to our every need. Many guests told us we wouldn’t eat/drink anything during our reception. Tom ensured we ate, had whatever we wanted to drink & refreshed our drinks when they had been sitting a long time. During our cocktail hour, Tom tinted champagne to our color blue. He kept the night on schedule without us feeling rushed. Later, we found out from several guests, that Doolan’s accommodated their dietary requests, even providing 2 steaks for the surf n turf. 1 guest had severe food allergies, the next morning Doolan’s made him breakfast & brought it to him. Doolan’s goes out of their way to ensure your day is exactly how you envisioned it & even better. They made it stress-free & we had nothing to worry about as Susan & her team had it under control. We would definitely suggest Doolan’s as a venue to anyone looking for extremely attentive customer service at a wonderful price!

After attending one of Doolan’s Bridal Open Houses we were hooked and new we wanted to have our wedding reception there. My bridesmaids and I also utilized one of the bridal suites to get ready before heading to our church ceremony. Susan and the rest of the employees at Doolan’s were nothing but accommodating, professional, and flexible from vision, to finished product. My now husband’s family is Polish, and Susan allowed us, and helped us to incorporate some of their culture in the wedding as well... from the bread and salt tradition, to having tables of Polish food set up during dinner. We couldn’t have asked for a better reception venue! Doolan’s helped make our reception a night to remember... we look forward to having dinner there on our anniversary for years to come. Thank you Doolan’s!
Sue and Bob are some of the best people in the industry to work together with. Whenever Essential Sounds Entertainment is working at Doolan's Shore Club we know that we are in good hands and are even MORE excited to entertain. They are efficient, pleasant and easy going and it makes our job that much easier. I couldn't be happier to work closely with them often and I can't wait to see you guys again soon!
We love Doolan's! Great place for weddings and parties. Your guests can stay at the hotel. The food and service are great! 1 mile from the beach.
