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!Sent on 01/10/2013

Excellence, Exceptionalism, Exquisite, and Experienced
The Venue is so beautiful. It was the first 2nd Venue we saw of 15 places and immediately fell in love. It reminded us of one our our favorite place which is New Orleans. It also has a elegance about it. Definitely not another cookie-cutter venue. The Owners and staff make you feel like your family and loved, and are completely willing to assist in all. The is also quite exquisite. Amazing place and well worth the trip.Sent on 04/05/2019

This is the best service that I've ever received! Susan and the staff at Doolan's did a great job making sure that our wedding was perfect. Anytime that I had a question (which there were tons of) and I emailed Susan I immediately had a response from either her or someone on her team. We received a ton of compliments from our guests about the service and the food and many of our guests LOVED the cocktail hour and said it was the best they've ever been to. I do have to say, our maitre d, Penny went above and beyond. She made sure that everyone was where they needed to be at certain times, made sure that I saw all of the displays, always checked in with me to see if there was anything that I need and made sure that my husband and I had time to eat during our wedding. She was so sweet and amazing! The worst thing that happened on our wedding day was that my husband accidentally dropped his ring down the drain while washing his hands and the team at Doolan's had this issue resolved immediately and we had the ring back within 5 minutes. Everything was amazing and well worth the price. Thank you Susan, Penny and everyone else at Doolan's for a great wedding!Sent on 06/26/2019
