We used to really like this restaurant. Recently, the menu has changed for the worse, and the service has gone down hill. 40 minutes to get a salad, and cold fish type service. Ordered dessert, and after 15 minutes of waiting, we just gave up and left. Been going to this restaurant for years, but I will not return. Very... More

Early dinner with friends -- group of 5. Walking in we're greeted with a wonderfully wood smoked chicken aroma and readily seated by friendly staff. Great menu with a good variety of cocktails, beer and the usual beverages. Menu has good variety from hearty appetites to lighter appetites. Pear chicken salad is my favorite. Along with complimentary bread basket and... More

We had a group of 20+ people here for a groomsman dinner. We were seated in a private room with the fireplace. The service was excellent, and prompt, and the food was very well done. I had a walleye fillet which was very good. This was on a Friday night, and the main restaurant was packed. This looks like a... More

Awesome dinner tonight at the Doolittles Woodfire Grill tonight. It was a packed house, and the kitchen was on its games. Sirloin steak with green beans and roasted red potatoes. Melted in my mouth filled with flavors that were perfect. The molten lava cake a little overdone, no molten, good chocolate flavor though, this is hard to get right. Love... More

The parking lot is kind of small, but there is an adjacent mall lot to help with overflow. Once inside you are promptly greeted and seated. If you're meeting someone they'll ask their name and the direct you to the proper table. More restaurants could take lessons from their seating efficiency. The wait staff are impeccably dressed and prompt to... More

I have been here about three times and have had a great experience each time! The food is delicious - good happy hour deals, and a variety of options for meat eaters, vegetarians, those watching their weight, etc. Staff is very friendly and attentive. Very cozy for a winter meal since the woodfire is constantly going! Recommend all of their... More

We were here for dinner on Friday night. Our sever, Cheyenne, was great. Attentive, helpful, good sense of humor. The restaurant had nice ambiance...warm, low lighting, comfortable furnishings, etc. The food was fine, but didn't blow my hair back. I had hanger steak but we also had chicken and salads at the table. It was all fine. Cheyenne suggested the... More

Featuring woodfired rotisserie cooking, Doolittles Woodfire Grill is an experience that ignites all of your senses! The woodfired rotisserie grills meat over an open flame for a savory wood roasted flavor. The rotation of the rotisserie creates self basting and slow roasting skewers resulting in juicy and succulent meats such as Spit-Roasted Chicken, and Smoked Hanger Steak with Horseradish-Whipped Potatoes and Red Wine Reduction. Doolittles boasts over 60 wines by the bottle and 30 selections by the glass. Come as you are!
