  • I was super set on this venue. It was the perfect venue until I drove up. The outside needs to be totally redone. There is holes in the concrete on the outside, the chimney you can see is falling apart it was very unappealing. When you walk in the foyer was beautiful, but then the bar to the right, when I looked up at the glass window there was a huge spiderweb that had dust on it like it has been there for a while. The ballrooms are nice. I prefer the larger one over the smaller one. The smaller one needs new carpets as they are brown and make the room very dark. They served appetizers at the show however they had a taco station and a guacamole station and to me that is like 2 stations that should have gone together. They should have had a pasta station to in my opinion. We tried the taco bar and it was very dry and the steak and chicken were very bland. We got 2 of the like 10 passed appetizers to try because there were not enough servers. The chicken on a stick was good but the sca... Read more

  • We had our wedding here this past June! We were such last minute planners, but Susan made sure everything was absolutely perfect on our big day. We had a brunch wedding and the food was amazing! We had several meetings and often changed some things around, but Susan was so patient and worked with us to ensure everything was how we imagined it.

  • The Venue is so beautiful. It was the first 2nd Venue we saw of 15 places and immediately fell in love. It reminded us of one our our favorite place which is New Orleans. It also has a elegance about it. Definitely not another cookie-cutter venue. The Owners and staff make you feel like your family and loved, and are completely willing to assist in all. The is also quite exquisite. Amazing place and well worth the trip.

  • This is the best service that I've ever received! Susan and the staff at Doolan's did a great job making sure that our wedding was perfect. Anytime that I had a question (which there were tons of) and I emailed Susan I immediately had a response from either her or someone on her team. We received a ton of compliments from our guests about the service and the food and many of our guests LOVED the cocktail hour and said it was the best they've ever been to. I do have to say, our maitre d, Penny went above and beyond. She made sure that everyone was where they needed to be at certain times, made sure that I saw all of the displays, always checked in with me to see if there was anything that I need and made sure that my husband and I had time to eat during our wedding. She was so sweet and amazing! The worst thing that happened on our wedding day was that my husband accidentally dropped his ring down the drain while washing his hands and the team at Doolan's had this issue resolved immedia...

  • We had our daughter’s wedding at Doolan’s Shore Club last weekend. They wanted a beach ceremony and this one fit the bill in so many ways. Anyone on the fence about this venue, all I can say is… book it! Susan Doolan is wonderful, professional and so easy to work with. She responded so quickly whenever we had questions. Her staff bent over backwards to be sure everything was in order. We brought a lot of stuff to get the room set up and they did it quickly, & perfectly with no instruction. I was truly amazed when we looked it. It was just as planned. The food… we did the shore club package…so much delicious food...so much variety, ice sculpture and beautiful, delicious, personally designed wedding cake included! Doolan’s is really a beautiful place and has a lot of great areas for pictures. On top of all of this the price is great! I highly recommend this venue, they go out of their way to make the day perfect

  • We were married at Doolan's in May and I cannot say enough good things about it! This was the first venue we looked at and as soon as we walked out we knew this was the place! Susan and her team were absolutely amazing from start to finish. Very responsive and helpful with any questions that came up. The day of Susan made sure everything went perfectly, even remembering things I had forgotten about. And the Food!! Our guest are still raving about the food, the cocktail hour alone was some of the best food I've ever had, and there were so many options. Both my husband and I got to pick our favorites and everything was top quality. Ending the night with the Goodbye station was a huge hit also. I am so thankful we found Doolan's, they really made our day absolutely perfect!!

  • Hands down, this was the best venue I could have had my wedding in. Let's start with the charm, the place has been owned by the same family since the 1950's and it has held it's charm. Everything is beautiful! Secondly, this venue has a small hotel attached to it. This is very convenient. While not all rooms are updated, they are kept VERY clean and they are quite spacious. The bridal suite is INSANE. Basically, it is two hotel rooms made into one. It has two bathrooms, a murphy bed, a huge king size bed, room for the makeup and hair people, huge mirrors, and plenty of room for everyone to get ready. The staff, is impeccable and attentive. The response rate is almost instant and the packages for weddings are very reasonable. Doolan's has some of the most delicious food I have ever tasted. Our cocktail hour is still being talked about. The food was so good, I heard that people didn't want to leave cocktail hour to go into reception. Choosing Doolan's and working with Susan and her staff... Read more

  • When we walked in, Susan greeted us, gave us a tour & answered all of our questions. We had some requests to include traditional Portuguese food & accommodate guests with food allergies. Any request, Susan found a way to fulfill it perfectly. We loved the cocktail hour room, their prices were extremely reasonable, for a June Sat. night. Our guaranteed count was 100 & that they included so much (centerpieces, signature drinks 30 mins before cocktail hour, 20 room block onsite to name a few). We went to a few tastings prior to choosing our food & the selection was unbelievable. We booked the Shore Club package with Surf n Turf as 1 option for dinner. Many guests enjoyed & it portions were generous. All guests stated the food was delicious & there was a lot of it. Some wished they had more room to try it all. Leading up to our day, Doolan’s confirmed all the final details & we were able to drop off everything on Tues./Wed. before our Sat. wedding so we didn’t have to worry & they coul... Read more

  • After attending one of Doolan’s Bridal Open Houses we were hooked and new we wanted to have our wedding reception there. My bridesmaids and I also utilized one of the bridal suites to get ready before heading to our church ceremony. Susan and the rest of the employees at Doolan’s were nothing but accommodating, professional, and flexible from vision, to finished product. My now husband’s family is Polish, and Susan allowed us, and helped us to incorporate some of their culture in the wedding as well... from the bread and salt tradition, to having tables of Polish food set up during dinner. We couldn’t have asked for a better reception venue! Doolan’s helped make our reception a night to remember... we look forward to having dinner there on our anniversary for years to come. Thank you Doolan’s!

  • I knew I wanted to get married down the shore. I grew up there and I miss it terribly. As I started researching venues, however, I quickly discovered you pay a premium to be right on the beach. Enter Doolan's. I had my prom there years ago and remembered thinking the food was good and they threw a great party. And since they were so close to the beach (maybe 5 minutes), I figured I should check them out. From start to finish, Susan Doolan was a consummate professional. She knows exactly what she is doing and her staff are well-trained, responsive and friendly. Susan herself was a pleasure to chat with and was very knowledgeable, offering suggestions and solutions that my overwhelmed brain couldn't reach. Doolan's can arrange for the beach wedding of your dreams or you can have the cermony on-site in the lovely garden/gazebo, which is what I opted to do. There are parks nearby for pictures, the beach (of course) and there are many lovely shots that can be taken right on the grounds o... Read more

  • Doolan's Shore Club did an absolute wonderful job for my Wedding on April 28, 2018. The food was fantastic and plentiful! Everyone is still raving about how delicious everything was. The reception space was beautiful! Thank you for letting me us the lanterns for the centerpieces, they were great! The staff was incredibly helpful the entire night, if we needed something they got it for us immediately. Also, our Maitre D went above and beyond to make our day special! Whatever we needed, she got us immediately. She was constantly checking in and asking us if we needed anything. At the end of the night everything was packed perfectly and organized. I would recommend Doolan's to anyone looking for a wedding venue. Thank you for making my wedding a day I will treasure forever!

  • From start to finish everyone at Doolan’s was amazing! Susan was always available by email or phone to answer any questions we had. Their wedding packages include so much more than many other places (signature drink, chair bows, champagne toast). Susan was always very attentive to specific details that we wanted for our wedding and was even there the night of to make sure everything went smoothly. Our maître d went above and beyond to make sure that we were attended to and always had a drink. Everyone at Doolan’s made us feel the day was just as important to them as it was to us. Everything came out exactly as I had imagined it and I couldn’t be happier we chose Doolan’s to celebrate our special day.

  • I cannot describe how perfect our wedding at Doolan's Shore Club was. We attended a bridal shore at Doolan's and my husband and I fell in love with our venue. We chose the Shore Club Package and got SOO much food during our cocktail hour and reception. Our guests are still raving about how delicious the food was and how great the service was. My husband's favorite part was the "goodbye station." Guests were able to have sliders, cheesesteaks, and milkshakes as they left our wedding. I loved the fact that our entire wedding took place at Doolan's from the ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, and the after party in the lobby. Then, our guests stayed over at the hotel and joined as for a brunch at Doolan's the next day. It was truly beautiful and stress free. If I could do it again, I would pick Doolan's every time!

  • We could not have picked a better venue for our daughter's wedding (10/21/17). Susan Doolan and her staff out did themselves. The staff was so attentive to all the tables at the reception. Everyone loved the food and we are still getting a lot of compliments on the food and the day. I would highly recommend Doolan's for any affair. Thank you Susan and staff for a day to remember. Amazing!

  • Susan and her team were extremely helpful with our wedding ! She was so responsive with all of my emails and made sure everything my husband and I asked for were met. The food was phenomenal and the whole experience was definitely top notch. If I were to do it all over again, Doolan’s is the place!
