  • Simply put, our December wedding at Doolan’s was incredible. The overall experience was beyond our expectations. We went through the pre-wedding second guessing that I’m sure many couples do, but thankfully we didn’t make any changes because after our weekend at Doolan’s I wouldn’t have changed a thing. Susan, Bob, and the entire staff were completely on point and went above and beyond to make sure every detail was taken care of. Susan was quick and responsive throughout the planning process. On the big day Bob and the reception staff were a step ahead of us in taking care of the little things that we had not planned ahead of time, their effort and attentiveness really showed! Doolan’s nailed it across the board, and it was great to offer the convenience of having everything in one location- the rehearsal, ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception went off without a hitch, and our guests were able to take a short walk but to their rooms whenever they were ready.

  • Doolan's is a great venue for a wedding. Their service was incredible. I dropped all my DIY items off the day before and they set everything up. The food was amazing and they let you do a lot of tasting so you can finalize the best menu. They truly made my wedding perfect! You will not find a better quality venue for the price.

  • Doolan's Shore Club treated my husband and I like a king and queen for the day. They are so attentive, caring and willing to go that extra mile to make us happy. I couldn't be happier with the way our day turned out and I owe much of that to Sue and Bob over at Doolan's Shore Club. Their lobby was the perfect location for our after party as well! We did karaoke in the lobby until 1am!! The food was great, selections were wide and they even thought enough to ask my husband what his favorite beer was. Sue brought in multiple cases of a very unique craft beer for him and we couldn't be more thankful. Doolan's was picture perfect!

  • We had our wedding scheduled for the first Saturday after hurricane Sandy. Susan and the crew were so helpful, personal and flexible, our wedding was rescheduled to take place 2 weeks later. Our guests enjoyed the venue, the food and lodging!

  • Our wedding at Doolan's was great! It was just a few weeks after Hurricane Sandy so needless to say it was stressful leading up to the wedding day. Susan and staff were very accommodating to our inability to come finalize everything far enough in advance and although we had to do a lot last minute everything went amazing! We as well as our guests had a fantastic time. I am still getting compliments about everything ESPECIALLY the food! We wish we could do it again. Thank you Doolan's!

  • Our wedding at Doolan's was fantastic. Our wedding took place a week after the hurricane so we were a little nervous that the event might not take place. Bob and Sue were constantly in communication with us to let us know about the power situation. They were going to purchase generators so we could have our wedding even if the power did not come back on. Everything worked out and our day was absolutely perfect. Pete and Kristin 11/10/12

  • We had gone to a "Bridal Show" at Doolans in the beginning of our planning process. We had no idea that at the end of the show we would be deciding to book there. Just about 2 weeks later they had our deposit check and we were set. Susan made the planning process so easy. She was super responsive with e-mails, which was appreciated. I was a "crazy bride" at some points and was confirming things more than once just to be efficient. We dropped off our table numbers, card box and a few other personalized things for our reception and the staff at Doolan's had everything set up on the day as we had hoped. The room was gorgeous. The staff was ultra accomadating. Bob made sure to bring my husband and I a plate of appetizers during cocktail hour so we got food in us. Catering staff always made sure we had a drink in our hand, and left food at our table for us to pick at. Doolan's exceeded our expectations. I highly reccomend booking with Susan and Bob. You won't be disappointed.

  • This is a long overdue review (but, hey... wedding etiquette says that you have a year for thank you notes... right?). And that's exactly what this review is all about. It's a thank you for exceeding my expectations, a thank you for making my day special, and a thank you for creating a lasting memory. From the very first phone call to Doolan's up the moment of check out, every single one of my wedding day needs was carefully handled and attended to by the helpful staff as well as Susan and Bob. They personally walked me though each step of the process (let's face it.... I was clueless) and were more then willing to allow me  to just "drop by" at a moments notice. Viewing the reception room many times still did not prepare me for the big day. Every single detail from the table covers to the cake display was impeccable. It's still a frequent topic of conversation.  I couldn't believe that this was for me! Even at this moment, I am still having trouble putting my thoughts into words as ... Read more

  • We had our wedding at Doolan's Shore Club on July 28, 2012 and could not be happier with our choice! When we started looking for venues, we originally stuck to chain hotels (Ramada, Double Tree, etc) because we wanted people to have a place to stay the night of the wedding to truly enjoy themselves. However, we coudn't find a place that we loved. So then we started looking into more "upscale" places that didn't have rooms, but found that the prices were way too high for what they were offering within the different packages. Finally, we found Doolan's, which we felt was a perfect blend of everything we wanted. Their packages offered many choices at a good value, and the convenience of having rooms for our guests on site is just what we were looking for. From our very first meeting, everyone at Doolan's was very professional and accommodating. They treated us to a free dinner at their restaurant because they said we "couldn't book a place without tasting the food" - and it was d... Read more

  • Our wedding was amazing! Doolan's (Susan and staff) really go above and beyond to make sure everything is what you want. Their food is phenomenal and plentiful. They keep the appetizers flowing throughout the entire cocktail hour, the drinks are not watered down, the staff is very friendly, the cake was delicious and the atrium is absolutely gorgeous! Everyone was raving to me during the wedding how good the food was and I'm still hearing about how delicious the food was! They set everything up perfecly, offered helpful suggestions and really just helped make this day very special for us! The atrium looked beautiful for our ceremony and that room was very quickly flipped over to hold our cocktail hour, everyone sipped on our signature drinks while they waited. The ballroom (the smaller of the 2) accomodated our guests beautifully, and the chandelier and mirrors just add that romantic glow. We loved everything about this and I highly recommend Doolan's!

  • Words cannot even begin to describe how amazing our wedding reception was thanks to Doolan's. Susan, Bob and the staff did a fabulous job bringing the vision we had in our minds to life. From the first day we went to Doolan's we were impressed with what they have to offer as well as their price. Our guests raved about the food- they couldn't believe how much was offered at the cocktail hour as well as the dinner. One of the things that people loved was the hot pretzels at the end of the night- just a little something extra that everyone appreciated. Doolan's gave us the party of a lifetime that we will never forget!!

  • My Husband and I just had our dream wedding at Doolan's Shore Club... As a venue, it can not be beat..If I could give 100 Stars for Venue Rating I would!!!!....Cocktail hour had so man choices, and ALL of it was delicious. This was not typical "wedding quality food" it was gourmet restaurant quality food. We had a mashed potato bar, macaroni and cheese bar, carving station and countless appetizers. The room was decorated beautifully, the cake was amazing, and Susan had no problem making all of our visions become reality. The ONLY thing that went wrong with the actual reception was that the chicken entree which was served, was not the one we chose. Normally this would have upset me, but everything else (including the chicken which we didn't choose) was so good, we didn't even bother bringing it up... We also had Doolan's orchestrate our Beach Ceremony. Bob was in charge, and I can't say enough good things about him. Bob listened to our requests, brought all of our little extras (fans, b...
