This place was recommended by a colleague. First impression - a dive in the truest sense. Place was dark and dingy - inside and out. Empty except a few old guys at the bar. Seated myself and was almost ready to leave when someone came to wait on me. Pepsi was served by someone from the bar, who wanted immediate... More

Attended a birthday party there, pretty much had opportunity to try a lot of the menu by sampling others meals. Let me begin by saying the the picture posted above looks nothing like the inside of this bar. It was older, dated and very dark. Bathrooms were dated, but clean. The staff was very good. Attentive, fairly fast and courteous.... More

Good food & plenty of eats to choose from. Has pool table for anyone who wants to play a game. Also good for family dining & on Sundays an all-you-can-eat buffet for $12.99 from 11 - 2:00 p.m.

I have visited this restaurant several times, a little to the tavern side less of a restaurant, Somewhat dark, dingy, food is decent and affordable, loud at times, Service is midrange . Not as acceptable for families, Auctions hosted on weekends at times during the afternoon

We strive to catch corned beef & cabbage every few weeks & the haddock other Friday's because both are excellent pub-fare specials. Check this place out!

We went for the weekend buffet with very low expectations. Very happy we went. Great omelette bar and about 10 hot dishes to pick from

Will never ever go to Doolittle again. One of the staff should not be working there. He will not wait on you and is very very rude. Mike that is . He is lazy and you have to hunt him down to pay and he expects a tip for doing nothing.

It’s been a while since I last paid a visit and most things have not changed. The food is typically better than most pub food but the service seems to be getting crusty and impatient. There seems to be no welcome when you arrive. It’s like they go through the motions to serve you but don’t care if they’re busy... More
