  • Susan and her staff were absolutely amazing for our wedding this past weekend. They were accommodating and honored all requests we had throughout the planning process with ease. I am still getting compliments on the food and entire day overall. Thank you, Doolan's, for making it a day we will never forget!

  • Brian and I cannot thank Susan Doolan and her staff enough for making our wedding day the most seamless, beautiful, enjoyable, most perfect day of our lives! From booking our venue and hotel rooms, to the rehearsal dinner, to getting ready, to the incredible setup for the ceremony and reception hall, your venue went above and BEYOND! Penny our maitre d was SO helpful the day of our wedding and we certainly felt like the most important people there! Everyone says you never eat at your own wedding---well I was able to try EVERY app at the cocktail hour, and everything at dinner (all due to the amazing staff who ensured we had whatever we needed). Even our wedding cake was included in our package and we were able to choose whatever we liked from Chocolate Carousel. ALL of our guests RAVED about the location, FOOD, service, cleanliness of the rooms, friendly waitstaff, promptness of getting whatever they needed, etc etc etc. The goodbye station was a huge hit and a wonderful surpri...

  • Doolan's was the best choice of venue I could have ever made! My husband and I went in to have a consultation and tour with Susan and she really knew what she was talking about. This is a family owned and operated business that included everything that we were looking for in our wedding venue. The price and value of what we were getting was above and beyond any other venue we checked out. It did not take us long to book with Susan and start the planning process! Susan, Nicole, Penny and the whole team were so helpful when it came to every last detail to our perfect wedding. I thought I would overwhelm everyone with all of the decor that I was bringing in but soon realized they knew exactly what to do with everything. I checked everything over and approved all of the beautiful work that Nicole put together for our Romantic Disney wedding theme and was so excited at what an amazing job she had done for me. Penny was our Maitre' D and she was fabulous! She was on top of everythin... Read more

  • Doolan's Shore Club was exactly what my husband and I had in mind for our wedding ceremony and venue! We knew when we went there for a bridal open house that it was the one for us! With prices that are very reasonable along with the amount of items (wedding cake, table decor, centerpieces, food options, room block, etc), and with how beautiful the venue is, we had to go for it! I am so glad that we made our choice of going with Doolan's. The outdoor ceremony was beautiful, and the staff was so helpful to our bridal party in making sure that everyone was in order and where they belonged. Our reception room was decorated beautifully with minimal instruction!! The staff was so friendly to everyone, and the food was incredible! Everyone had wonderful things to say about our wedding, and we would not change one thing about it! Thank you Susan and Doolan's for making our wedding day the absolute best day of our lives!!!

  • Susan and everyone at Doolans were amazing! She was so helpful throughout our planning! She answered any questions I had quickly and was so accommodating with everything we asked or needed. Everything came out absolutely beautiful! The food was amazing! All of our guests went on and on about how great the food was! All of our guests loved the convenience of having the hotel on site to stay over as did we! We continued the party to the lobby bar after the wedding and the next morning at breakfast! It truly was the best day of our lives and we couldn't thank Doolans enough!

  • Doolan's is a beautiful, old-fashioned catering hall. We read many reviews & spoke with several people who had their wedding with Doolan's Shore Club after visiting and booking with them, & no one had a single negative thing to say. We had our Friday evening September wedding with them, & we have to agree regarding how amazing this place is. We worked with the owner, Susan, throughout the planning process, as well as her wonderful staff. They were professional, thorough, accommodating, & flexible. Equally as important was their very reasonable pricing, which made this location work with our budget & allowed us to make our small seaside wedding happen- they really do include so much & you can customize it to fit what you want. What was also great was the hotel attached to the venue, which alleviated my concern for shuttle service or my guests driving inebriated. Susan ran our ceremony at the Bradley Beach Gazebo, and it went flawlessly. Susan & her staff kept on top of our event, ma... Read more

  • Susan & her staff were simply amazing!! I was so worried about how the room for our wedding reception would look with only picking out table settings, but it looked fabulous!! All of our quests raved about cocktail hour, how good the food was, how nice the staff was & the sushi was out of this world!!! The food for dinner was amazing also and the staff was friendly & attentive to my husband & myself, always filling our wine glasses & asking if we needed anything. And Chocolate Carousel, which worked with us for the wedding cake was amazing also. My husband's one cousin are 3 pieces it was so good!! There is a reason why Doolan's has been around for so long, because they know how to do It right.

  • This place is beautiful! The location is very nice. Outside can use some improvements but the inside is gorgeous. Susan is absolutely amazing. She worked with us to solidify our date in August. She worked with our budget which helped us realize that Doolan's Shore Club was right for us. We only toured this location and knew that it would be perfect. Although the big day is months away I know it will go smoothly thanks to Susan and her staff. I'm so excited!!!!!

  • Doolan's offers everything! This was the first and only venue we toured and decided it was the one right away. Susan, the owner, is awesome and really helpful. The price is so reasonable and can accommodate any budget! Their packages honestly do include everything you need to plan for a ceremony/reception. It made planning my wedding so stress free. Doolan's is family owned and a mile from a beautiful beach. The inside is gorgeous and will make any wedding truly magical.

  • My husband and I had our wedding at Doolans two nights ago and it was fabulous. Susan and her staff were always so easy to work with and accommodating to our every request. Ever since our first visit we loved the old charm and the glam factor. We also loved that the motel was attached so it made it easy for out out of town guests. The food was amazing on each tasting and the actual day. Not that we got to eat most of it because you know the bride and groom are always pulled in every direction! Thank you so much Doolan's for a wonderful wedding.

  • I had great expectations for Doolan's based on all of the great reviews and pictures I found online. However, when I visited the property for a tour, I was extremely disappointed. The lobby is very lovely, however the ballrooms are very dated. It is in need of a repainting and the ceiling needs to be replaced. The cocktail hour space is extremely small, compared to the space for the reception. Also, during out meeting with Susan, who was very nice and informative, I was turned off after she told us our date was not available (we are planning a year and a half out). But then she also talked very poorly about her "bad" brides. It left a very bad taste in my mouth and we immediately decided that this was not the place for me and my fiancé to start our lives.

  • Doolan's was great from day one! The food was fabulous and service was great. Susan and her staff were there to answer any questions I had throughout the entire planning process. Because we had a Friday wedding, I was able to go in the day before and set up the ballroom exactly as I had pictured it. You also couldn't beat the price for everything we had.
