Ordered margarita. Tasted like a watered down lemonade. Ordered cranberry and vodka. Tasted like cranberry juice. Ordered Irish fries. Microwave cheese over fries... Disgusting. Seated next to door.... Everyone standing over you while you eat. Irritated! At least they didn't screw up the bottles amberbock ---- reason for 2nd star. I am amazed how this place stays in business. Server was courteous and recommended the dark room for a decent cocktail. Earned a full 2nd star

Response from the owner - a year ago
Mr Tharp, we are so sorry for your experience here. The drinks sound like they were rushed and not prepared properly. The Irish fries don't get microwaved, they are cooked in a broiler, but it surely sounds like they were overcooked. Either way not ok on our end at all. I apologize for your experience, sorry that people were right on top of you, as you saw with the Fox show we were packed and unfortunately that resulted in the bar spilling over into the seated area. I have addressed that to have my hostesses limit the amount of bar customers in the area at one time. Please email me personally at

The food is good, everything else ... not so much. As a SLU student, I and practically every other undergrad living about a block away had been waiting for a cheap burger place/bar to open up -- at least since I'd gotten there. When Dooley's finally opened we were pretty excited and went there a few times. The food is good -- especially the cheese on the burgers and the fries. The drinks are also decently priced and it's about a five minute walk from campus. But after a while the service and the lack of consistent hours started to take a turn. There have been quite a few nights when a group of us (SLU kids) have been hungry and wandered over to this area looking for something to eat. Sometimes Dooley's is open -- sometimes it's not (and we've never been there past 10.) They were once closed at 7pm on a Tuesday. I find that weird since most college kids don't even eat dinner until 7 or 8. Eventually just asked a waiter who responded that they just kinda close when they don't have business; i.e. there are no set hours. Okay. I've had a few waiters there who weren't quite familiar with the menu, or just seemed ... not sober... Once, I found a fruit fly floating in my margarita and the waitress seemed a little amused and not at all apologetic. In fact her response was, "Oh ... yeah we have those back there [in the kitchen]." WTF. Why would tell a customer that? She didn't even offer to comp the drink, just said she'd bring me another one (I declined). My friends and I haven't been back since. I took my parents once when they visited. On a recent visit they asked to go back and I wouldn't. Since The Shack opened in place of Laclede's we just go there. Closer to campus -- which I know Dooley's can't compete with now -- the food is consistently good, the service is great and the prices are cheap. The food in general is not as good as Dooley's BUT everything else rates higher. Since Dooley's was open a good 8 or 9 months before the Shack they had a clear chance to get a steady stream of SLU business but it might be too late now. Maybe if they hired more SLU kids that would bring in more business since we tend to visit our friends who work at restaurants?

Ellie W, First off let me take a moment to apologize for the delayed response, I just got access to these reviews. Everything you stated is spot on and we've worked hard to correct/replace those not willing to help Dooley's progress forward. The area has been tricky for us in terms of the hours. We hold consistent hours now during the school year, summertime has earlier closing hours. Please feel free to email me at as we'd love to get your business and your trust in us back up to Dooley's. I don't blame you for giving up on us, I surely would, but I do feel we've fixed a lot of the issues you named and would love to be given the chance to win you back!

Atmosphere isn't bad though it's a bit confusing. You expect an English pub by their icon (name is Irish though) but get more of an Irish American burger joint. Burgers seemed unique and were filling. Beers were between 4.5-5.5$

Thank you very much for visiting. Yes we are Irish, our logo actually comes from when our founder Alex G Dooley started the restaurant he called it Beef Eaters, unfortunately the liquor company didn't like the similarities, and the logo was on print but the name was easy to change. Trust me the Irish side of the family wasn't too pleased.

My wife and I got the "famous" burgers, but didn't find them that famous. And don't be fooled, the $9 burger doesn't even come with fries (add $2, and really not worth it). Best part of the burger was the creamy cheese spread. We agreed that Chiptole would've been a way better choice. First time here, may come back if we really feel like dropping more money to taste the sandwiches, but won't expect anything special. If visiting the city, we say: Find something better!

Mr Romelfanger, First off let me apologize for the delayed response, didn't have access to these reviews until today. We would like to take this moment to apologize for your experience. If you could email me about what you had to eat, so we can correct the problem. The price is comparable to other restaurants but I'd like to make sure you feel your having the best burger for the price, which it doesn't sound like you did. Email me personally at

The server Peter was awesome! Very helpful! Terrific! Coolest guy ever! And the burger was outstanding, too! Best burger in town without a doubt. I can't wait to go back and get some of their delicious fries!

Dooley's is the greatest place west of Moscow. The burger tastes like angels frolicking on your taste buds.
