They have an excellent chef and enticing menu. The chef does specials and last Christmas they had Rack of Lamb. It was better and there was more of it than I got in Las Vegas at the top of the Mandalay Bay hotel.

Looking for a good value, consistently excellent food and good service? You can't beat Doolittles just south of downtown Alexandria! It's the go-to spot for lunch or dinner with friends. For a light lunch, try some of their appetizers, their flatbread or delicious salads. They also have interesting main entrees for an evening meal.

Food was delicious and staff was super friendly. I recommend the sausage flat bread! Yum yum :) My son had the Tina melt but that was a little out of his comfort zone. I tried it and it was good but a little too fishy tasting for me.

When in Alexandria my husband and I enjoy stopping at Doolittles for a cocktail and usually an appetizer. The squash soup I ordered was delicious and beautifully presented. I would describe the atmosphere as cozy. We have always received great service from friendly wait staff. We look forward to going back.

We had a big group but the service was average. Took a while to great drinks, the kids food came our fast. The adults food was pretty good nothing amazing but good. Felt bad for our server he was doing his best just would have been better with some additional help.

In my opinion, the menu offered a variety but the items were prepared a bit out of the ordinary and not that stellar in taste. Way over priced for what was presented. I would not return.

Doolittles is a regular stop for me. Over the years I've had my favorites. As they've added & subtracted menu items, each time I've had a new favorite. This winter it's the quinoa salad. Full of flavor; spring greens& quinoa ,tiny hints of basil, loaded with craisins rotisserie chicken , caramelized pecans, and tossed in a light flavorful vinaigrette..unexpected mouth... More

We ate an evening meal here and I had the special, which was rotisserie sliced sirloin over a bed of mushroom ravioli. It was perfect! The meal came with bread and butter and I got a side salad as well. The food could not have been any better. The server was also very prompt and professional.

Doolittle's is a nice, consistent restaurant. I've dined here a number of times, and while nothing has really blown my mind with awesomeness, neither has anything been negative! That's saying something nowadays! Comfy, cozy atmosphere, good food reasonably priced, and professionally attentive service. What more could you want?

Featuring woodfired rotisserie cooking, Doolittles Woodfire Grill is an experience that delights all of your senses! The woodfired rotisserie grills meat over an open flame for a savory wood roasted flavor. The rotation of the rotisserie creates self basting and slow roasting skewers resulting in juicy and succulent meats such as Spit-Roasted Chicken, and Smoked Hanger Steak with Horseradish-Whipped Potatoes and Red Wine Reduction. Doolittles boasts over 60 wines by the bottle and 30 selections by the glass. Warm, relaxing atmosphere...come as you are!
