  • The ballroom is beautiful and the service is great. We picked Doolan's in large part because of it's proximity to the beach and Spring Lake Park and it was a good price. Susan made us feel comfortable and had everything set up the way we asked. The food however could have been better and my husband and I felt the food was inconsistent from the tastings to the night of our reception. Nothing we ate was bad, however the quality had room for improvement.

  • Doolan's Shore Club was everything we had hoped for in a venue. Our ceremony was originally supposed to be on the beach, but due to thunderstorms, we had to move it inside. Doolan's was so flexible and kept me calm through the whole decision making process. The ceremony was gorgeous in their atrium, and the reception was remarkable. They set all of our centerpieces, placecards, favors, etc. exactly the way we had envisioned. Also, the food was amazing. Our guests are still raving about the amazing cocktail hour and dinner food. Finally, Doolan's provided us with outstanding service. Our coordinators went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. Doolan's is an exceptional venue, and they will make sure your wedding day is nothing but perfect!

  • Doolan's was the perfect place for our wedding. Susan, Bob, and all of the other staff did an outstanding job at our wedding and they were very accommodating. They took care of EVERYTHING for us. The food was outstanding and we received so many compliments on how great everything was. For our dinner entrees we had the Filet Wellington and Seabass, both were very delicious and the filet was cooked perfectly. We had a lot of out of town guests and Doolan’s was able to accommodate all of them in the hotel. We had our ceremony outside in the gazebo and it looked amazing. The atrium was beautiful for the cocktail hour. The Presidential Ballroom for our reception was gorgeous. I have not one complaint about this venue. Our expectations were exceeded! I couldn’t thank everyone at Doolan’s enough for the wonderful job they did at our wedding. I recommend this venue to all future brides!!!!

  • I was very happy to have chosen Doolans for my Daughter and Son in Laws wedding. The cocktail hour was incredible, our guest could not stop talking about how much food there was. The shrimp boat was a wonderful suprise. The Filet Mignon, Chilian Sea Bass and the Chicken selection were delicious. The bar selections were unlimited. It was a very elegant Wedding.Sue and her staff made their Wedding a dream come true.

  • Susan and everyone at Doolans could not have done a better job at giving my husband and I our dream wedding! It is newly renovated and fabulous! We took pictures outside in their beautiful garden area, and our ceremony was in the atrium room, cocktail hour in the small ballroom, and reception in the larger ballroom. The whole day from taking pictures, to ceremony, to cocktail hour, to reception flowed perfectly. So many of our guests said our wedding was the best they have ever been to! One of my favorite moments was when they surprised me by turning all the lights down and bringing out the Baked Alaska. It was an awesome feeling to be surpirsed at your own wedding! Their prices were very reasonable as well. Now on our anniversary we go back to eat dinner there and we always get 5 star service by Susan and staff. Doolans is the best and would definitely rcommend them to everyone!

  • Susan, Vicky and everyone at Doolans could not have done a better job at giving my husband and I our dream wedding. Throughout all of our planning, they were always helpful and easy to reach. The day of our wedding, i had no stress what-so-ever. They had everything organized and set up exactly as we wanted, and the whole day from ceremony, to cocktail hour, to reception flowed perfectly. So many of our guests said our wedding was the best they have ever been to! Our guests kept telling us how great the food was, and they loved the cocktail hour and the variety of hor d'oeuvres. Doolans is a great venue, I couldnt be happier with our wedding and I would recommend them to anyone.

  • When my fiance and I were looking for a venue, we knew that we needed a place where attention to detail is combined with a calm atmosphere that comes with many years of experience. We wanted this combo because we planned our NJ wedding from Hawaii (where we live). When Susan offered to set up a private tasting for us based on the next time we visited our families in NJ, I knew that we had made the right decision. Susan, John Henry, and Bob couldn't have been more accommodating and helpful, especially when it came to the food: from vegetarian, to vegan, to gluten free. The food was amazing, especially the Beef Wellington and the Pecan Encrusted Seabass. What was most incredible to us is that their prices are some of the best at the Jersey Shore!

  • Doolan's was the absolute perfect place to hold our wedding reception. As a family owned establishment they truly catered to our personel needs and hosted our large group of friends and family the entire extended weekend in their lodging. The staff was incredibly personable, friendly, and generous. My husband and I live in Texas but were able to easily plan the wedding in New Jersey because the staff at Doolan's were very flexible and cooperative. We recieved an excellent deal on the event that allowed my husband and I to pay for the entire thing ourselves. The food was terrific, the venue beautiful, the staff helpful. I genuinely do not have a complaint. I hope to come back and visit soon!

  • Words cannot begin to describe our experience at Doolan's for our wedding this past weekend. Susan Doolan and her staff went out of their way tending to our every want and need to make sure everyone had a great time. The food was unbelievable (the sea bass is the BEST!!) and two days later people are still telling us they're full! Thank you to everyone at Doolan's who made us and our families and friends so happy!

  • Our wedding at Doolan's was absolutely beautiful. For the most part the food, staff and service was fantastic. There were a few minor issues that made me give it all 4 stars, instead of 5. My biggest complaint was that I wasn't crazy about the design of our cake but it tasted great.

  • We chose this venue as we wanted a place where a hotel was attached so our guest did not have to worry about driving. There is a bar attached too which is a plus! The pricing was also manageable compared to other venues we looked at. Susan was very helpful in the whole planning process, and on the day of the wedding with setting up as we had a lot of reception favors and decorations. Be sure to specify if you want something back after the wedding as they did not keep any of the menus I DIY's. Other than that, my guests loved the place and the food. The wedding cake was beach-themed and came out perfect! We also did a brunch the next morning which had great food and setup. Overall, great venue and hotel.
