  • I got married on April 29, 2016 and it was a day to remember. Every single thing about Doolan's was perfection. We spent the entire day there, they provided us with outstanding service. My entire bridal party got ready in the massive room downstairs & were accompanied the whole time with the staff making sure that we had everything we needed. The ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception were exquisite (especially for servicing almost 200 people!!!). Susan really does such an outstanding job. She is so professional and wants to make sure everything is wonderful and fits your needs. After shopping around to a few different venues, we knew right away that Doolan's was our choice. They offered so much more than any other venue. We even got to enjoy a wonderful breakfast the next morning with all of our guests who stayed the night. I would highly recommend Doolan's Shore Club to any and everyone! Thank you Susan & staff for a magnificent wedding of my dreams!! Xoxox

  • What an absolute pleasure it was working with everyone here. From seeing the venue for the first time to the time we left the morning after our wedding everything was perfect. We had the Shore Club package and it was above and beyond the value. The food all fresh and amazing, all we heard that night and today is nothing but compliments on the variety of food and how good it was. And so happy we could have a custom station at cocktail hour... a bacon bar! What a hit that was, not only did Susan research it more for us but they nailed it. The bacon was flying off the table. The atrium for our ceremony was decorated beautifully, and the ballroom just perfect. Brenda our Dedicated Maitre D’ was great, she nailed it with taking care of us. Rob our one bartender made sure our bride and groom drinks were exactly how we wanted them made. And Susan, she made it so easy to work with her and answered every question we could have had. It was a perfect day.

  • We used Doolan's for both our rehearsal and wedding venue. There are not enough words to explain how perfect my wedding day was thanks to the doting staff at Doolan's. Susan was so accommodating and flexible. If I ever needed to adjust any of my plans, there were no issues or problems. The staff was so on top of everything for both events. I highly recommend this venue for any event. Everyone raved about the service and food. Amazing!!!

  • We held our wedding ceremony and reception party at this beautiful venue. Susan Doolan is so professional and very friendly, she knew what we wanted and served it up. All our guest thoroughly enjoyed the food that is prepared there and the gorgeous scenery. We had a winter wedding held in the atrium, it really was stunning. We also held our rehearsal dinner here and they really are so accommodating being that we had quite a few guests with a gluten allergy and some with dairy allergies and yet everyone was able to enjoy plenty of the food. The best bang for your buck truly!

  • When my husband and I started looking for venues we were in agreement on a few things: needed to be by the Jersey Shore, needed to have the hotel within walking distance of the reception, and the price had to be reasonable since we were inviting almost 150 people. We had looked at a few places prior to meeting with Susan at Doolan's and we immediately fell in love with the lobby alone. The double staircase is GORGEOUS for pictures. As we toured the location, we realized this was the venue for us: the ceremony room is beautiful, the reception hall has the biggest dance floor I've ever seen, and everything was all at the location so once there for ceremony, guests didn't have to leave. When the day finally came, I worried because I didn't have a wedding planner and was handling a lot of the details on my own, but obviously couldn't be decorating and getting ready at the same time. We were so blown away by the quality of service and attention provided by Susan and her team. We had a lot o... Read more

  • Doolans is the first venue that we toured, and I knew right away that this was our place ! We toured another venue in spring lake just for good measure, and boy it didn't compare one bit ! Even from our initial tour, Susan went above and beyond - she spent almost two hours with us that day ! (The other venue had us in and out in 20 minutes.) That is the benefit of dealing with a family-owned business ! Susan truly loves what she does and makes everything so smooth and easy. We only had a 5 month engagement ... Which may have been stressful if we had booked somewhere else. The ceremony room is GORGEOUS - our wedding was on a sunny day in October - the Windows in that room make is very special. And the reception room is beautiful, too. We had about 100 people, and the tables were set up perfectly. The food is FABULOUS - definitely isn't like typical wedding food you might get elsewhere. We got compliments for weeks afterwards ! They also have a cash bar open until about 1 am, so after ... Read more

  • Susan and her team put on an excellent wedding for us September 20, 2015! The ceremony in the Atrium and reception were well run, our guests raved about the food, they especially loved the ice cream sundae bar! Everyone has been singing Doolan's praises. Thank you Susan, we had an amazing day!

  • Doolan's Shore club was like a fairytale wedding.Everything since the day we booked our wedding until the day after our wedding was smooth sailing. Susan (the owner) is an amazing woman with patience, compassion, and understanding. Susan took care of us all the way! Anything we had our doubts on (is the ceremony space actually gonna look nice the day of?) IT DID! (can these people pull off two weddings at the same time?) THEY DID! there was another wedding the same time as ours and for the most part- We never crossed paths at all! (exempt during the after party at the bar which just made it a merrier after party!) We did two tastings before our wedding and loved everything. The food here is to die for- my husband and I will absolutely be back for dinner on special occasions! The tastings however show no justice for the displays they create during your actual wedding. Our cocktail hour was above and beyond with so much food I honestly didn't even get to see half of it (Bride problems) ... Read more

  • Doolan's Shore Club was beyond amazing for our daughter's wedding. From our first meeting with Susan Doolan, through the entire planning process, everything was clearly explained. The actual reception was beyond magical! The room was set up so beautifully with both their decorations and items we had too. The food was delicious! Everything was cooked perfectly and all the requests from our guests were met with smiles and prompt attention. The staff worked tirelessly to ensure that the evening was perfect. When my daughter's dress suffered a mishap a staff member ran and got scissors; the bride was able to continue dancing!! All of our guests left saying they had never experienced such an amazing reception; one guest called it "the wedding of the century"! Doolan's is the perfect venue for a wedding reception!

  • Doolan's wowed us all, absolutely amazing venue! The staff went above and beyond and I felt very comfortable putting our day in their hands. Great attention to detail, unbelievable food (quality and quantity) and wonderful atmosphere! Having rooms after the wedding was the perfect ending to our day. We were able to spend time talking to our guests at the bar after the reception and then see them for brunch too!

  • We had our wedding at Doolan's on July 26, 2015 and they exceeded ALL of our expectations! From the service to the decorations to the food, they were absolutely fantastic. When we began our search for a vendor, we wanted to have a beach wedding but were becoming discouraged by the outrageously high prices just to have an oceanfront ceremony. Then, we stumbled upon Doolan's--a GEM! Their prices were within our budget and when we visited the venue, we knew that it wasn't because it was "cheap" but because it was just a really good value. Everyone LOVED our wedding and said it was the best wedding they've ever been to. They said it was beautiful and that the food was fantastic! Even those guests who often find things to complain about did nothing but RAVE about how awesome Doolan's was! All of the food--from cocktail hour to dinner to dessert--was fantastic. (I've yet to eat a salmon that tasted so yummy.) It was picture-perfect. As the bride, I was so grateful for Susan's will... Read more

  • From the moment we booked we were treated exactly how a bride and groom would want to feel. They were available to meet and answer all questions. Kevin was really helpful and flexible and Susan's experience in the wedding planning made it less stressful and more enjoyable. The food was amazing each and every time we went for tastings and our guests raved about cocktail hour and the Viennese table specifically. It was really nice to have the bar open afterwards for our guests and the rooms attached made it that much easier for our guests and we were able to say our goodbyes at a breakfast offered for the next morning. The amount of entities that Doolan's has to offer is unmatched and the service is highest quality.

  • The food was delicious! There are a bunch of different packages to fit every budget and situation. They were very accommodating and flexible with all of our requests. My mother in law has a severe fish allergy and they were very accommodating and even gave us a break on the price since we had no seafood at the cocktail hour or reception. Beautiful shore feel and the atrium looked amazing for our ceremony. Susan was great! Only complaint is the guest rooms need to be updated and cleaned better. Other than that awesome venue!
