Had stuffed chicken with potatoes and green beans. Dinner came with great rolls and excellent chicken noodle soup. Potatoes were a little hard on the outside but ok inside. The restaurant is an older building but appears to be in good condition. Easy to get to, just off route 71, plenty of parking.

We went here for my Mom's 85th birthday last evening. The place had a wedding going on upstairs, and we were directed to the restaurant in the rear of the building. A bit dated in the décor, they had a nice menu. Wait staff was all over the place, not in a good way. We had three different waiters at... More

Stayed in a two bed poolside room. Clean and good for the price. Fridge in the room is helpful touch. Our room had an old tube TV but other room had a flat screen. Parking was adaguate. The pool was big and clean. Complentrary breakfast was great! Dinning at Doolins was not cheap. But I highly recommend the small plate... More

We had a wedding reception here this past weekend and the food was wonderful. The service was far above average and the entire experience was one of our best. Highly recommend Doolan's for your family function. Thank you!!

Went there late afternoon on a Sunday for a family dinner. Was pleasantly surprised that they had pre-fix dinners. There were two different prices for the dinners but it wasn't clear as to what was or wasn't included in them. Waitress was not at all helpful and in fact down right unfriendly. Service was slow even though not that busy.... More

The food is below average. It was served cold and not very appealing. We were at a wedding and expected better because of the place's reputation, Try one of the local Point Pleasant Pubs instead.

Food was expensive but just average. The service was average as well. Was disappointed as it was a Mother's Day dinner. Was expecting much more.

We've been to Doolan's too many times to count. Last night the twilight menu was not at all like the menu on line. Also, the bread was not warm as every time before, I ordered Flank Steak Rare and it came medium well. At that time I was told the steak was pre-cooked to medium. Why would a flank steak... More

Place needs an overhaul ! Lobby dated and dingy . Garden area has ugly motel setting on left. Very unappealing . They also seem to be very disorganized with many weddings at once jamming the lobby ,
