We stopped by after church to grab some breakfast. Good menu with a nice selection of choices. The Irish eggs benedict were very good. Loved the side of potatoes. Service very friendly and attentive. Prices were very reasonable.

Great music provided by live entertainer. My meal consisted of nice, fresh vegetables with baked fish. Terrific pint of Guinness nicely poured.

Went to Dooley's for breakfast and had a wonderful time. Get a full irish breakfast or an omlette. The space is small and cozy. You'll enjoy the atmosphere in one of the areas where Boston's oldest building pair with their youngest. Great for photography.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have

I'd have to agree with the other responses. This doesn't seem to be a place I'd expect to see special menu options. But, you never know. Best to give them a call
