Susan and everyone at Doolans could not have done a better job at giving my husband and I our dream wedding! It is newly renovated and fabulous! We took pictures outside in their beautiful garden area, and our ceremony was in the atrium room, cocktail hour in the small ballroom, and reception in the larger ballroom. The whole day from taking pictures, to ceremony, to cocktail hour, to reception flowed perfectly. So many of our guests said our wedding was the best they have ever been to! One of my favorite moments was when they surprised me by turning all the lights down and bringing out the Baked Alaska. It was an awesome feeling to be surpirsed at your own wedding! Their prices were very reasonable as well. Now on our anniversary we go back to eat dinner there and we always get 5 star service by Susan and staff. Doolans is the best and would definitely rcommend them to everyone!

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!
